With the NFL’s Wild Card weekend officially here and Super Bowl LV right around the corner, there’s never been a better time to give your TV a once-over. If you’re still using the same flatscreen you got as a hand-me-down from your folks, a quantum dot, or QLED TV, could be an amazing upgrade. And the model of your dreams just might be waiting at Samsung, which has slashed the prices on tons of top-rated models.

What is a QLED TV?
If you’re new to shopping for high-end TVs, a QLED unit is essentially one in which the screens are comprised of microscopic dots that react to light by emitting color. The end result is a screen that’s able to produce vivid color and sharper imagery than one might otherwise find in a non-QLED panel.
For those looking for a television in this category, the Samsung Q80T is a hidden gem. Originally priced from $1,099.99, it’s on sale from $999.99, so you can save between 100 to $200. According to Michael Desjardin, a senior staff writer and TV tester at Reviewed, what makes this particular QLED model so remarkable all comes down to what you’re getting in exchange for the reduced price point.
“We [haven’t] yet tested the Q80T in our labs, but being a quantum-dot TV, you can reasonably expect bright highlights and impressive color reproduction,” says Michael. “It’s also equipped with an array of features that can [also] be found in the more-premium Q90T (priced from $1,599.99)—like a 120 hertz (Hz) native refresh rate and variable refresh rate (VRR) support—for significantly less money.”
In Michael’s opinion, it’s a fantastic choice for fans of the brand who may be looking for a QLED experience, yet don’t necessarily want to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars to secure it. You can get choose from 50-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch iterations.
A real top-tier unit worth drooling over—especially at its reduced price— is the Samsung Q90T, which is one of the best TVs we’ve ever tested. Originally priced from $1,799.99, you can get it starting from $1,599.99 right now, so you’ll save between $200 to $800.
“[The panel for the Q90T] is outfitted with microscopic dots that boost color and brightness. The Q90T impressed us with its searingly bright highlights, its rich color reproduction and its impressive list of features.”
From streaming movies to next-generation gaming, the Samsung Q90T could be superb in any size (you can snag it in 55-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch versions) and help kick your screening experience up to the next level. These models are just a few of many top-rated, heavily discounted televisions available on Samsung’s site, however. Below are some of the most stellar options to shop now.
