What’s the best OLED TV on sale right now?

Our favorite OLED TVs

(Image credit: Future)

1. LG C2
2. Vizio H1 OLED (US only)
3. LG C1
4. LG G2
5.Sony A90J

Subjective, but we'd recommend the LG C2 as the best OLED TV for most people right now. It's not the cheapest, but it's got a great set of features for both movies and games at 4K, a refined design, and a price that's actually very reasonable considering the level of quality. Also worth considering is 2021's LG C1, which is an older model now but one that can be found for relatively cheap as retailer's look to clear out old stock.

If you're strictly on a budget, then we'd recommend checking out the Vizio H1 series OLED TV. These sets generally run slightly cheaper than the equivalent displays from LG and still offer a great level of picture quality and smart TV capabilities. For sheer bang for the buck, these displays are absolutely amazing for watching shows and movies. They also support 120Hz at 4K for all you next-gen gamers out there, but some sites (including ours) have reported frame skips when running this display flat out. It's also not the brightest OLED TV on the market when compared to its rivals.

Are OLED TVs better than 4K TVs?

Firstly, it's important to note what each term actually means: 4K is a reference to a television's image resolution capability, while OLED is a display technology. That means the two are not really comparable – it would be like asking whether racing games are better than Xbox games.

In fact, OLED TVs are available in multiple resolutions, including 4K. Instead, the better question would be whether OLED TVs are better than non-OLED sets, such as LED/LCD or QLED TVs. In that sense, the answer simply comes down to personal preference.

Many will argue that images offered by OLED TVs are superior to those delivered by regular TVs using traditional LED/LCD technology. OLED (short for organic light-emitting diode) screens offer deeper black and more accurate contrast than competing display technologies because each pixel can be turned on or off individually. 

Motion of images is also much smoother, making OLED TVs excellent for sports, movies, and gaming. This refined tech also allows the world's leading TV manufacturers to make OLED TV sets incredibly thin. 

That said, there is a trade-off that comes with most OLED TVs, in that they're currently incapable of reaching the same high levels of brightness that an LED/LCD TV can. This is because traditional LED/LCD TVs are backlit, which allows for far greater (but less accurate) brightness.

All this cutting-edge design and technology means OLED TV prices can be much pricier than most regular 4K TVs. Prices are coming down all the time though, especially on the 55-inch and 65-inch models. Good thing we're here to show you the lowest prices, right? Also, if you can afford the 77-inch OLED TVs we'd very much like to be friends.

 Will OLED TV deals be cheaper in 2023? 

OLED is an expensive technology and likely to always carry a premium versus the usual LED 4K displays that proliferate the market. Not only is it costlier to produce than LED, but it's much more difficult to mass produce in high numbers. Generally speaking, we tend to see prices from the big brands stay roughly constant each release cycle.

That said, over the past few years we've seen more budget-focused brands like TCL and Vizio enter the OLED TV deals market with cheaper displays. While they often don't tend to offer quite the same quality and features as the more established brands, these displays are getting better and better each year and definitely worth keeping an eye on. You'd be surprised at how cheap these sets can get over big retail events like Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday.

Speaking of which, these big sale events are also great for picking up discontinued or soon-to-be discontinued models from LG or Sony. While lacking some of the latest features or design refinements, these displays are often still amazing while sporting discounts that easily exceed those being offered on the newer models. A good example of this is the LG C1 OLED vs the latest LG C2 model.

Are OLED TV deals worth it?

So you're looking for the best of the best, but don't want to spend over a grand to realize you can barely tell the difference between your new and old displays. That's understandable - these are some pretty pricey TVs. OLED TV deals can sometimes feel like an extortionate amount of money to pay for a new screen, but if you're looking for a premium viewing experience they will definitely make up for their costs in sheer wow-factor. 

Perfect blacks, excellent viewing angles, knife-edge clarity and that oh so crisp picture quality often bring a new lease of life to even the most tired of Netflix's catalogue and the oldest PS4 Pro titles. If you can score that premium viewing experience while meeting your budget, these OLED TV deals will be more than worth it for that moment you first press the power button.
