Despite some initial price cuts, name-brand 4K HDTVs are still costlier than their 1080p counterparts. But this week's top TV deals include a 4K Sony TV that's trying to make some headway. It's not the cheapest 65" you'll find, but it comes bundled with Sony's own 4K Media Player and a free credit. For the rest of us, we've also found a trio of deals on 32" sets and a 39" RCA for $249.
Samsung 32" 1080p WiFi LED-Backlit Smart LCD HD Television bundled with a $200 Dell eGift Card
Store: Dell Home
Price: $427.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $150
Is It Worth It?: We typically wouldn't advise purchasing a 32" LCD at this price point, but the Samsung UN32H5500AFXZA is no ordinary 32" TV. It features 1080p resolution, LED backlighting, built-in WiFi (a rarity in TVs this small), Samsung Smart TV with Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant Video, and three HDMI inputs. Even better, it comes with a $200 Dell gift card, which in our eyes is as good as money.
Vizio 720p 32" LED-Backlit LCD HD Television bundled with a $100 Dell eGift Card
Store: Dell Home
Price: $249.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $110
Is It Worth It?: Perfect for a dorm room or children's room, the $250 32" Vizio E320-B1 offers 720p resolution, LED backlighting, and two HDMI ports. Even better, it comes bundled with a $100 Dell gift card making this an all-time price low for this TV.
Sony 65" 4K Ultra 2160p 3D WiFi LED LCD HD Television bundled with the Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player
Price: $3,498 with free shipping
Lowest By: $232
Is It Worth It?: The Sony XBR-65X850A is the cream of the TV crop with a pixel-packing resolution of 3840x2160, otherwise known as 4K. At $3,498, it's still prohibitively expensive for most of us, but today's deal comes bundled with Sony's 4K Ultra HD Media Player, which is a 2TB set-top box that can be used to stream, download, and store 4K content from Sony's Video Unlimited 4K service. The TV features a 120Hz refresh rate, LED backlight, built-in WiFi, USB, four HDMI ports, and four pairs of 3D glasses. Plus, receive a $69.96 credit from Amazon along with this bundle. (Credit is sent via e-mail 35 days after the TV ships.)
