Since we can’t go to the cinema in order to watch the latest movies, having a 65-inch 4K TV at home is the next best thing. Those extra inches of screen pack even more mouthwatering details to elevate your viewing experience to even greater heights. And you don’t even have to spend too much money on one as we’ve found these fantastic giant 4K TVs that are on sale at Best Buy and Dell ahead of Memorial Day. Save up to $200 when you buy the 65-inch Sony X900F, LG UM6900, Samsung NU7300, or Vizio V-Series today.
— $470, was $500
First on our list is the Vizio V-Series 4K TV. This 65-incher’s relatively high price tag is well-justified as it offers solid image quality thanks to local dimming, and supports the latest 4K and HDR video formats, including Dolby Vision. Another sweet bonus is its built-in Chromecast which allows you to control streaming using your phone. The downside? Vizio TVs are seriously handicapped by the frustratingly sluggish SmartCast TV interface. Right now, the Vizio V-Series is on sale at Best Buy for $470 instead of the usual $500.
The Vizio V-Series’ Ultra HD display packs 3,840 x 2,160 of pixel resolution. It supports both HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR, which means you’d be able to view content at the highest possible resolution. Furthermore, for a budget TV, we were pretty impressed with its picture quality. Images looked sharp with deep, inky blacks and accurate, vibrant colors, making this TV great for dark rooms. Unfortunately, the viewing angles weren’t the best we’ve seen. The picture starts to significantly deteriorate when you move further away from the central focal point. At least this TV’s low input lag makes gaming feel extremely responsive, and it has a good response time, though there’s slightly more blur trail in fast-moving scenes.
As mentioned, the SmartCast TV interface is far from great. It’s annoyingly slow at times, although it does look well-organized and polished. Besides, you’ve got Chromecast built in, but you cannot add new apps on it. This TV is compatible with AirPlay so you can stream or share content from your Apple devices, as well as virtual assistant integration including Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant for voice-assisted control and content search.
If you’re on a shoestring budget but still demand a nearly premium viewing experience on a massive screen, then you should definitely opt for the 65-inch Vizio V-Series 4K TV. Get it at Best Buy today for a cool $30 below the usual price.

The 65-inch LG UM6900 4K TV is a terrific all-rounder that’s stunning for movies, TV shows, and games, featuring a 4K Upscale Engine processor that transforms HD and Full HD content into a higher 4K Ultra HD resolution for even more stunning and crisp details. The downside? The picture isn’t particularly bright and its ports could have been better placed (they’re backward-facing and located almost near the center, although there are some side-facing ports that are more convenient).
The UM6900’s 4K LCD display is packed with 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. It supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) which works with LG’s own Active HDR to make each shot sharper and more dynamic, and as realistic as possible. Furthermore, advanced color mapping and coloring enhancing technology ensure that colors are accurate and remain vibrant at all times. The contrasts could use some work, though, and the display could definitely be brighter, but these drawbacks don’t ruin the overall viewing experience.
This TV runs with LG’s artificial intelligence-driven WebOS smart software, which acts as a portal to all the leading streaming services. The interface is fast, responsive, and well-organized, with easy access to all of your favorite streaming apps and channels both online and broadcast. And with voice assistants Alexa and Google Assistant integrated, you can opt for hands-free control and content search. LG’s astonishing Magic Remote is compatible with this TV, but unfortunately, it requires a separate purchase.
If the LG UM6900 doesn’t compare with LG’s premium OLED screen; nevertheless, its picture quality is pretty good and its relatively affordable price won’t burn a hole in your bank account. Get a 65-inch unit for $500 at Best Buy, an awesome $50 off its normal retail price of $550.
— $698, was $748
The Samsung NU7300 4K TV tries to argue that a curved television is the future. What’s the point of a curved display, you might ask. Does it actually enhance the viewing experience? The answer is, to put it simply, no. It works just like any regular flat-screen TV, beside the slight improvement in viewing angles. But that is true only when it’s positioned directly in front of you, of course, because once you mount this TV on your wall it does more harm than good. Fortunately, the NU7300 has other things going for it, including a picture quality that’s undeniably good (although it’s not particularly bright) and smart features that are impressive for the price. Right now, the 55-inch unit of the Samsung NU7300 is available at Dell for $698 instead of $748 – a cool $50 off.
The Samsung NU7300 is made almost entirely of plastic, but the metallic trim on its outer edges is a nice luxurious touch. Ports include three HDMIs, a couple of USBs, and both Ethernet and built-in Wi-Fi network options. It basically has everything that you would need for connecting peripherals, although a fourth HDMI would have been nice.
This TV is great at upscaling HD content to its native 4K resolution, resulting in a richly detailed and vibrant picture. Colors are enhanced but still look quite natural, the contrast ratio is excellent with uniformly deep blacks, plus this TV supports high-dynamic range (HDR) content from Netflix and other platforms. It also has excellent low input lag and decent motion handling which makes it good for gaming, but it doesn’t support any advanced gaming features, like FreeSync. Lastly, its brightness level peaks at just 300 nits, which is fine but won’t really do HDR justice.
Arguably the NU7300’s greatest strength is its smart TV interface. Samsung’s Eden is super easy to navigate and customize, with menus and icons presented in a clean and organized fashion. All your favorite streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube are readily available, plus Samsung’s voice recognition (you can use either Alexa or Google Assistant) and control system are simply top-notch.
The Samsung NU7300 doesn’t really make a strong case on why you should own a curved TV. However, if you’re after excellent picture performance and a superb smart TV interface at a very reasonable price, this would make a wonderful option. Get a 65-inch unit at Dell for $698.
– $1,000, was $1,200
For most of 2018, the Sony X900F reigned supreme as the best-looking LED screen out there. Almost nothing came close to its incredible picture quality. Then, along came the OLED A9G Master Series the following year and we thought it might overshadow the excellent X900F. It did, but then we saw its sticker price and our jaws collectively dropped. Not to worry. Although nearly a couple of years old, the Sony X900F is still an incredible, up-to-date TV worth having. Right now, it’s on sale at Dell for $1,000, a huge $200 off its normal retail price of $1,200.
This TV oozes high quality without having to call too much attention to itself. It is simple, sleek, and understated. The screen is surrounded by a thin aluminum frame, and its brush-metal feet offer the opportunity for cable management, although we noticed that there’s no real effort to keep wires in check, unlike other TVs. You’d have to get creative if you don’t want visible wires.
What’s responsible for the X900F’s glorious picture is underneath the hood: Sony’s X1 Extreme processor. From excellent color management to clean motion resolution for everything from games to 24-fps movies, the X1 Extreme runs things with panache. It’s best to put this TV in a dark room if you really want to be blown away, as its native contrast ratio, color, accuracy, and full-array local dimming support is unbelievable. Furthermore, it supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR processing for the ultimate high-definition and virtually judder-free viewing experience.
Android TV is fine overall, but we noticed that it is relatively sluggish and less polished compared to other smart TV platforms. It’s our biggest gripe with any Sony TV, including the X950G and A9G below. We suggest that you get yourself a Roku or Fire TV stick. At least the built-in Chromecast is a nice little feature that allows you to control the X900F using your smartphone. Sound quality isn’t the best, though, which is really something you should anticipate with TVs this paper-thin. The solution? A soundbar.
The Sony X900F offers spectacular picture quality without having to shell out thousands of dollars more. Get a 65-inch unit for a huge $200 less at Dell today.
