When did the Cyber Week TV deals officially start?

While Black Friday may be over, the best Cyber Week TV deals are still ongoing. And there's never been a better time to be in the market. The trend for Cyber Week TV deals has seen the window of discounts, cuts, and savings widen to the days after Black Friday. That means anything from now on is potentially fair game if you’re looking to save money on a new TV.

What is a good Cyber Week TV deal?

We're here to help you sort that out. best gaming TVs guide will get you up to speed on the best-in-class sets you should be eyeing up before the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett come around, with the former having been confirmed for 2020.

Futureproofing is key

As tempting as it can be to turn to an older model because it still looks big and shiny, it’s worth noting that we’re on the threshold of the biggest shift in gaming in over half-a-decade. You’re going to need something that lasts the long haul; a model from before 2015 may not look quite so impressive come 2020, 2021 – or even beyond that. Think of it as a long-term investment: OLED TVs are only going to more and more compatible with the likes of Netflix and the Disney Plus, as more and more of their shows and movies will be presented in 4K, alongside some of the other best streaming services suddenly flooding the market.

Plus, the new consoles should undoubtedly factor into your decision, or even the higher-end models that have cropped up in recent years; check out the Xbox One X Cyber Week offers for more on getting the most out of that. Don't forget to check out the biggest Cyber Week gaming specials for more bundles and other savings. At the very least, you should be aiming for a Smart TV as part of your Cyber Week TV deals hunt.

Last, but not least: seeing flashing signs that promise ‘$100 off’ or '55% off the recommended retail price' sounds great in theory, but it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Compare prices first, especially throughout Cyber Week, to see if you can’t wrangle a better deal elsewhere. Comparison site CamelCamelCamel makes contrasting each Cyber Week TV deal a doddle, so that should be your first port of call throughout the day.

Will the Cyber Week TV deals just be on TVs?

TVs are all well and good, but sometimes you need something to watch on it. As Amazon Prime Day proved, there are plenty of savings to be made on DVDs and Blu-ray boxets, particularly when it comes to the likes of Marvel and Star Wars. Franchises collections such as Mission: Impossible and Harry Potter will almost certainly take a drop in price on the day, too.

Elsewhere, there's Cyber Week gaming PC deals to keep an eye on, and also Cyber Week gaming headset deals. Don't rule out some bite-sized bargains, either: the Cyber Week Nintendo 2DS XL discounts will be coming thick and fast, and so, too, will Cyber Week iPad savings. Let's hope the cuts are similarly generous for Nintendo Switch Cyber Week bundles and bargains. Basically, everything you could wish for is probably going to be on sale, not just TVs.

OLED, 4K, QLED... Here's what it all means

Buying a TV means deciphering what all the tech jargon salemen throw at you actually means... Luckily, we're here to help make sure you know exactly what your buying when you get caught up in the Cyber Week  TV deals surge.

4K/UHD/Ultra HD

This is the resolution of the image that can be displayed by your TV. 4K refers to the resolution 3840x2160 pixels. It's also referred to as UHD or Ultra HD by some broadcasters or manufacturers. Basically, if a TV can display pictures in 3840x2160, it can be called a 4K TV or 4K ready TV.

HDR

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. The majority of 4K TVs come with HDR as standard, and it's a technology used to process colours within games, movies, and TV shows. Primarily, HDR is used to boost the colour of a picture by making them more vivid, thereby contrasting colours further. If you can separate very similar shades of colour, then you can create clearer images.

OLED

This stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode, and it's a type of TV panel. Basically, while LCD and plasma panels require something called back-lighting or edge-lighting to create pictures on screen, OLED panels don't need it. With back-lit or edge-lit TVs, the LEDs in the panel are illuminated in groups or lines to create a picture. With OLED TVs, each LED on screen can be individually lit – switched on or off to create a picture. This is what allows for truer blacks in OLED sets. With the ability to completely switch off each individual LED, you get sharp edges on images and deep blacks because there is no backlight showing through at all.

QLED

This is Samsung's own technology, and it stands for Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode. Quantum Dots are particles, which are lit to create a picture on screen, and they can get much brighter than LEDs. This means QLED sets offer brighter colours and better contrasts than any other panel type. The panel is still either back-lit or edge-lit like traditional 4K TVs, and this can make a huge difference when it comes to black levels. Back-lit QLEDs can not only deliver the vivid colors, but they can also produce sharp images and blacks that rival premium OLEDs.

Response time

This is the speed at which a colour can change on your TV (eg. from black to white to black again). Most 4K TVs have response times quicker than we can perceive them, so it makes no real difference for casual TV watchers or games. However, purists will want a TV with the quickest response time possible.

Refresh rate

Not to be confused with response time – refresh rate is the speed at which an image can be refreshed on your TV. Most TVs offer 60Hz-120Hz, although no 4K TV has anything higher. A 60Hz 4K TV, for example, refreshes the image on screen 60 times per second, which allows a certain level of smoothness to the image. If the TV refreshes at 120Hz, the image is twice as smooth, and you notice that in how slick the motion appears on screen.

HDMI

This stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, and it's the standard connection cable between a 4K TV and most devices. You need at least an HDMI 1.4 cable to carry a 4K signal, although most modern HDMIs are 2.0 cables, capable of carrying 4K signals at 60 frames per second. And no, you don't need to buy expensive gold-plated HDMI cables to get a better picture - just the Amazon Basics will do just fine.

Cyber Week TV deals: QLED vs. OLED

QLED vs. OLED is the new TV debate on the block. When it comes to Black Friday TV deals, it's an argument you'll swiftly want to consider, especially depending on what's right for your setup. Check out the definitions for each in our jargon-buster above then head on back here.

Typically, OLED TVs will have superior blacks over QLED, due to QLED being an upgraded LCD unit which still requires backlighting. However, QLED does have a slight advantage when it comes to colour, particularly in brighter rooms.

If you're factoring in price, QLED's smaller models (such as 43-inch against the OLED's smallest 55-inch set), hints that QLED is going to be cheaper in the long run.

Honestly, OLED would be preferable to QLED if you're looking for a bigger set . For one thing, there's far more variety and choice, whereas QLED is limited to Samsung only. If you want to go big on a TV, that's your choice. If you're stuck with a smaller budget, QLED probably gets the edge, and there's going to be very little noticeable difference to the untrained eye.
