When it comes to 2017 Black Friday deals, there’s plenty of talk surrounding 4K televisions. The ultra high-def sets — which pack twice the 1,080 rows and 1,920 pixels delivered by high-definition 1080p sets — are in high demand.
Retail experts expect 4K sets to sell for roughly the same as their 1080p predecessors, with steep discounts across all sizes and brands. But when you’re browsing Black Friday ads, you can also expect to find great deals on LED TVs, which use light-emitting diodes for backlighting, and non-4K smart TVs, which comes connected to the Internet with onboard storage.
Regardless of what set suits your fancy this holiday season, it’s always best to go in with a plan. If you have TV dreams, read on to find your best bargain on Black Friday.
