The best QLED gaming TV deals have crawled back into bed for now, but they're scheduled to reawaken this November. That's a chunk away yet, so you've got plenty of time to decide whether you want to pick up a new screen now or hold off. We wouldn't blame you if you've not got it in you to wait, and while the deepest discounts do tent to happen during the event, savings can be found all year long.

Quantum dot LED (QLED) screens are arguably the best gaming TVs, so investing in one is a sure-fire way to upgrade your gaming visuals. Not only do they generally cost less than their OLED and QD-OLED counterparts, but they still boast excellent brightness and colors. Better still, various models by LG, Samsung, and more have shown up alongside other Black Friday gaming deals, so you can grab a bargain on a punchy panel that suits your specific needs.

Hoping to find the best QLED TV for a lot less than normal? We're here to help you gauge what to expect during Black Friday 2024. We've whipped up a list of retailers and some of last year's best prices too, meaning you'll be able to work out a figure you'd be happy with paying.

Black Friday QLED TV deals - what to expect

Samsung Q70T

There are a few displays that we're going to be looking particularly closely at during 2024's Black Friday QLED TV deals. From new releases that are already seeing early discounts to older models that are primed for some hefty reductions, it's likely we'll see a healthy range of prices on the shelves this November. 

One of last year's best value QLED options was the TCL Q5, which ended up reduced from $449.99 to $229.99. The 55-inch Hisense A6H also showed up for just $259.99 at Best Buy. We fully expect to see similar budget models show up during 2024, and we might even end up with a few newer screens at a similar price.

As for the higher end of the scale, the Samsung QNED85 is a great example of a screen that dipped below $1,000. It was slashed to $896.99 during the event, and we suspect it might show up for less this year if it's still available. Both the Samsung Q70C and QN70C also ended up with $500 and $1,100 off respectively, but we reckon those prices will drop even further as the line up matures.

What time of year has best TV deals?

Black Friday is usually the time to grab great TV deals, but discounts will pop up throughout the year. If you do miss out on the big event, you should be able grab a similar discount during Amazon's Prime Day sale. 

Is Samsung QLED the same as OLED?

QLED and OLED are completely different types of screen tech, but both have their strengths and weaknesses. QLED (Quantum dot LEDs) are tiny nanocrystals that can change color independently. OLED (Organic LEDs) provide a similar function, but don't need to rely on a separate backlight for illumination. Our tests conclude that the latter produces better colors, contrast, and black levels, where as QLED screens are much brighter and are less suspectable to screen burn and image retention.

I’ve been messing around with PCs, video game consoles, and tech since before I could speak. Don’t get me wrong, I kickstarted my relationship with technology by jamming a Hot Wheels double-decker bus into my parent’s VCR, but we all have to start somewhere. I even somehow managed to become a walking, talking buyer’s guide at my teenage supermarket job, which helped me accept my career fate. So, rather than try to realise my musician dreams, or see out my University degree, I started running my own retro pop culture site and writing about video games and tech for the likes of TechRadar, The Daily Star, and the BBC before eventually ending up with a job covering graphics card shenanigans at PCGamesN. Now, I’m your friendly neighbourhood Hardware Editor at GamesRadar, and it’s my job to make sure you can kick butt in all your favourite games using the best gaming hardware, whether you’re a sucker for handhelds like the Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch or a hardcore gaming PC enthusiast.
