There are lots of great deals today to kick off the new lunar year, including Hisense and TCL 65″ 4K TVs for just $499.99, a 48″ OLED gaming monitor for under $900, an Alienware Aurora RTX 3060 Ti gaming PC for only $1146, and much more below.
Hisense U6H 55″ 4K QLED Google TV for $499.99
Amazon currently has the 2022 Hisense U6H 65″ 4K QLED Google TV for only $499.99. That’s a hefty $300 price drop from its original $799.99 price point. This was one of the best selling TVs during Black Friday, at the exact same price. The Hisense U6H is a 2022 TV model that offers a lot of features for a 65″ TV at the $500 price point. This TV boasts a quantum dot display (QLED) with a full-array LED backlit panel with local area dimming and wide color gamut (ULED). It also has a high peak brightness of 600nits, which means this is a solid TV choice for brightly lit rooms with poor light control. Although the U6H doesn’t have a 120Hz panel, it is still a good choice for a gaming TV because it has variable refresh rate and a very low response time.
TCL 5-Series 55″ 4K QLED Roku TV for $499.99
The TCL 5-series is as close to the U6H in terms of features and image quality as you’re going to get and today Amazon has brought the price down to $499.99, matching the U6H deal. The only difference is the smart TV interface; whereas the Hisense U6H adopts Google TV, the TCL 5-series features Roku TV. Both TVs offer excellent value for $500.
48″ LG 48GP900-B 4K OLED Gaming Monitor
The 48GP900-B is the first Ultragear gaming monitor that uses an OLED panel. This is a simliar WOLED panel to the one that you find in the 48″ LG C1 OLED TV but there are a few key differences. Instead of the semi glossy coating found on the OLED TV, the 48GP900 features an anti-glare low reflective coating that is undoubtedly a better fit for close up monitor usage. It also has DisplayPort connectivity and lacks the built-in Smart TV interface. It does carry over the HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K @ 120Hz compatiblity for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners, as well as VRR and G-SYNC support. Additionally, the 120Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to 138Hz when used as a PC monitor. Lastly, if aesthetics matter for you, there is subtle RGB backlighting on the rear of the monitor that isn’t present on the OLED TVs.
