Amazon refuses to wait until Black Friday to offer some great deals on large gaming TVs. The first is a large 65-inch Samsung QLED TV for $947 (opens in a new tab)and the second is the popular 55-inch LG evo C2 Series 4K OLED for a low price of $1,346. (opens in a new tab). Both sets are capable of PC and console gaming in 4K at 120Hz, so your dream of turning your living room into a PC gaming space could soon become a reality.
The Samsung Q70A 4K QLED TV is already one of the most affordable 4K gaming TVs out there at $1,399. Now marked down by $450, it’s a viable upgrade if you want to go a little lighter in your living room.
Its QLED panel provides good contrast and supports FreeSync VRR and low lag, so the Q70A works well as a large format display for gaming and a TV for watching Game of Thrones.
The only real knock on this TV is that it’s a 2021 model, so you’ll miss things like the Xbox Cloud Gaming streaming app. (opens in a new tab), available in this year’s edition. It also only has an HDMI 2.1 port, so you’ll need to switch between 4K/120Hz consoles and devices or buy a higher-end HDMI switch or receiver.
That said, for less than $1,000, you get a great screen and features for the price.
The LG C2 OLED, on the other hand, is one of the best gaming TVs you can buy. It used to be around $1,800 but has dropped in price a bit since the summer, and now, it’s the lowest it’s ever been.
Not only does it have four HDMI 2.1 ports, but its OLED display gives your games the right color and speed. This TV also supports 4K resolution at 120Hz. It also has support for Nvidia G-Sync and FreeSync, so no matter which GPPU you have in your PC, you get dynamic updates.
I only have experience with the 2020 version of this show, but our friends at Tom’s Guide gave this TV a decent score. (opens in a new tab). The only thing they didn’t like is that it doesn’t have a TV lock, so you have to resort to apps to watch TV.
Both TVs also offer Google Assistant and Alexa support, which will play well with other smart devices if your home is wired.
Currently both TVs are in stock and available to ship this week. If you’re looking for something smaller than 55 inches, don’t worry. Big box retailers like Best Buy, Target, and Walmart are currently sitting on tons of inventory, so expect to see more deals on gaming TVs and other PC gaming devices as we head into shopping season.
