These LG and Vizio TVs will change your viewing experience without breaking the bank

HD. 4K. LED. Smart sets. It really is a new age for those in the market for a new TV. I mean, could you even have imagined you could affordably bring home a screen over seven feet across even just a few years ago? No, you were probably too busy trying to eke a few more years out of that 24-incher with the rabbit ears.

Well then, it's well past time to step up your game. And the good news is with all the competition in the TV market, you can buy some truly stellar TV models loaded with cool features at a lot less than you'd probably think. On top of that, we've also pulled together five TVs with discounts from $40 to $850.

LG 86" 4K HDR Smart LED UHD TV with AI ThinQ – $2,149.99; originally $2,999.99

Clear off the entire living room wall, because this behemoth is truly massive. Despite this 86-inch monster screen offering a movie theater-esque experience in your home, it's actually less than 4 inches thick. With 4K ultra-high-definition (UHD) and HDR support, you'll get epic picture quality here. It's also sporting LG's own AI ThinQ system with built-in Google Assistant, Google Home, and Amazon Alexa features, so you can also use your voice to control compatible smart home devices.

Pick the VIZIO that's right for you

Meanwhile, VIZIO has four models on sale, all sized to fit your space with each offering full HD and 4K resolution.

First, both the 75-inch and 60-inch VIZIO SmartCast E-Series Ultra HDR Home Theater Display come equipped with VIZIO's SmartCast system, which allows you to browse and launch top apps like Netflix and Hulu right off your big screen so you'll never be at a loss for something to watch. Or use the built-in Google Chromecast to stream TV or movies, listen to music, or play games from over 100 different Chromecast partners.

On top of all that, VIZIO E-Series TVs also come with local dimming technology, including up to 16 zones on your screen individually adjusting contrast and black levels in each sector to produce more precise picture reproduction.

The 75-inch is factory refurbished and certified to work and look just like new for $1,499.95 (originally $1,999.99); while the 60-inch comes with a $150 savings, down to only $599.95 (originally $749.99).

Upgrade for less

Can you believe a 50-inch screen is now considered a kind of small display these days? Thankfully, if that's the size that suits you best, 50-inch models come with most of the same features as bigger units, but with a considerably smaller price tag.

The VIZIO D-Series 50" Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV ($429.95; originally $499.99) has full streaming with VIZIO Internet Apps Plus as well as a revolutionary V8 Octa-Core processor featuring a quad-core GPU and quad-core CPU to make all your streaming and connected content run like lightning. This model also comes with VIZIO's Spatial Scaling Engine, which converts and automatically upscales all HD content up to 4K Ultra HD resolution.


Meanwhile, the VIZIO E-Series 50" Class 4K HDR Smart TV ($429.95; originally $469.99) is about as much television as you could ever expect for under $450. Yes, it's got full HD and 4K UHD picture quality, complete streaming capabilities with SmartCast and Google Chromecast on board, and the E-Series dimming zones.
