CES 2015 may have been a good two months ago, but the memories remain. While this year’s running of the annual Las Vegas trade show wasn’t a big launching pad for phones and tablets like it used to, we did see a variety of interesting Internet of Things (IoT) devices, as well as the usual collection of new HDTV launches. And as these are all new television sets for the 2015 model year, these aren’t the type of TVs you’d see on sale. Still, one can’t deny that it’s great to have a new HDTV in the living room – with WrestleMania 31, the 2015 NBA playoffs, and the start of the 2015 Major League Baseball season all in the horizon, there’s a lot of great sports action for everyone to enjoy. And if sports aren’t your thing, then there’s the Game of Thrones fifth season premiere in April – wouldn’t it be great if you can see what happens to Tyrion, Daenerys, Jon Snow and other popular characters in ultra-high definition?
It’s been a while since we’ve brought you some HDTV deals, so with that introduction over and done with, let’s head over to the Amazon website and help you save some money on your next 4K high-definition television set purchase.
Samsung, as you may know, is one of the leaders in the HDTV space and if you’re in the market for a new 4K HDTV, there are more than a few options to consider from the Korean company. The 65-inch 4K HDTV with 120 Hz refresh rate and 3D support costs $2,797.99, or over a thousand dollars cheaper than the original price of $3,999.99, while the 55-inch 4K Ultra HDTV with 120 Hz refresh rate can be purchased for $1,497.99 instead of $2,199.99; this option comes with a curved display as a special feature.
If that TV is too small for you, you can try another 4K HDTV from Samsung, which has a curved display and 120 Hz refresh rate. Pricing is now $2,197.99, or over $1,100 less than the original selling price of $3,299.99. All of the above TVs come with Samsung smart features baked in.
Samsung isn’t the only brand that’s well-represented in Amazon’s current 4K HDTV deals. The 65-inch Sony HDTV with 120 Hz refresh rate and 3D and smart features is now available for $2,498, down from the original $3,999.99, while the 55-inch version of that same HDTV will cost you $1,798, another thousand dollar-plus discount off the original price of $2,999.99. And moving over to LG, Samsung’s top Korean rival has a 49-inch 4K Ultra HDTV with 120 Hz refresh rate and 3D/smart features selling for just $1,199. That’s $500 off original pricing of $1,699.99 though as a reminder, only seven units are left in stock as of this writing.
We’ve finally come down to the final HDTV for this recap and we’ve decided to end it with one of the more affordable 4K HDTVs available on Amazon. You will, of course, need to have no problem with buying an off-branded product, as the Seiki SE39UY04 39-inch 4K Ultra HDTV comes with a 120 Hz refresh rate, but no 3D or smart features. Furthermore, Amazon makes it clear that the TV is from the 2013 model year. Still, you can’t get that much cheaper than $329.99, which is less than half of the original price of $699.
