Keep up with Stanley Cup with a new TV
What better way to watch live television and your favorite shows than on a brand-new TV? Lindsay Sakraida rounded up this week's best TV deals.
Whether you're looking for a new big-screen TV to watch the upcoming World Cup or just want a small set to keep you company in the kitchen, this week's best TV deals have you covered. We've got two 39" TVs that come with sizable free gift cards, as well as a massive discount on a 65" 4K TV.
VIZIO Razor 39" 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television and a $125 Dell eGift Card
Store: Dell Home
Price: $329.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $125
Is It Worth It?: It's true that most stores will charge the same price for this TV, but if you buy from Dell, you'll also snag a $125 gift card in the process (it's added to your cart automatically). Assuming you use the gift card for necessary accessories, that's like paying $205 for 39" of screen real estate. This TV features a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p), LED backlight, USB, and two HDMI inputs.
Seiki 22" 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television
Price: $89.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $32
Is It Worth It?: Sometimes good things come in little packages, like this Seiki TV which is at the lowest we've seen for any 22" 1080p LED LCD HDTV. Features include a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p), built-in 3D video noise reduction, and HDMI and USB inputs.
LG 38.5" 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television
Store: Dell Small Business
Price: $399.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $69
Is It Worth It?: If you're a fan of the top deal because of the sizable gift card, but would prefer a better-known manufacturer, look no further than this Editors' Choice deal. It's $70 more but comes with a larger gift card, not to mention the fact that this deal has dropped $80 in price since last week. Features include a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p), LED backlighting, and two HDMI ports.
Samsung 40" 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television
Store: Best Buy
Price: $398.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $80
Is It Worth It?: A prime example of the benefits to buying previous-generation models, this well-equipped Samsung TV is now at the lowest price we could find by $80. Features include 1920x1080 (1080p) native resolution, SmartTV Internet applications (including Vudu, Hulu Plus, YouTube, and more), wireless connectivity, two USB ports, three HDMI inputs, and other inputs.
Seiki 65" 4K Ultra 2160p LED LCD HD Television
Price: $1,199.96 with free shipping
Lowest By: $749
Is It Worth It?: We've talked at length about how quickly 4K TVs are dropping in cost, but this deal still astonishes even us; while the $1,200 price tag is nothing to sneeze at, you can't beat the $749 savings. It features a 3840x2160 resolution — four times that of 1080p TVs. It also has a 120Hz refresh rate, LED backlight, and three HDMI ports.
