We are on the last day of Prime Day 2020 and there are some amazing flash deals underway. One that’s happening right now is on Sony’s 65-inch A8G 4K OLED TV. Normally $ 1,998, it dropped to $ 1,500 for a limited time. This deal is set to last until 5 p.m. ET today, but I have my doubts that it will remain available for that long.
$ 1,500 is a good price for a 55-inch OLED TV, so getting a larger size for that figure is a steal. And in terms of specs, the A8G is solid. It can be wall mounted and has an Android TV with integrated Cast. In terms of ports, it has four HDMI ports with ARC and CEC support to allow the TV to work better with other entertainment devices. Two of these ports support HDMI 2.0.
In general, an OLED TV will provide far better picture quality than traditional LCD or LED panels. Colors will be more true to life and blacks will be as dark as they can get, for excellent contrast. The A8G has extensive HDR support, with HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG. Rtings.com, an in-depth review publication, claims that this TV has a native refresh rate of 120Hz at 4K resolution and below.
Of course, if you want to get bigger than a 65-inch TV while saving some money in the process, you can do so with Best Buy’s first Black Friday deals on TVs, ending later tonight. Samsung’s large 70-inch 4K TV costs just $ 530 (usually $ 750). If you want a Sony OLED TV, but $ 1,500 isn’t in your budget, the 55-inch A8H is $ 1,300 at Best Buy. On the high end, LG’s 65-inch GX OLED 4K TV costs $ 2,600 at Best Buy, costing $ 200 less than usual.
