Cyber Monday 4K TV Deals
To get the best 4K TV, complete with excellent image quality, superb HDR performance, and low input lag (essential for gaming), you’re going to have to spend a lot of money, but there is a chance that this year we'll see some OLEDs slip into the mid-range price category. The less money you spend the more features go missing, so bear that in mind when you’re spending money on a 4K TV this Cyber Monday.
4K OLED and High End 4K TV Best Cyber Monday Deals
OLED TVs are the top range in 4K TVs you can buy. While they tend to be more expensive than the LED offerings, they offer superior picture quality. We've got the best 4K TV OLED Cyber Monday deals for you below. The LG OLED55B8 looks to be the pick of the deals so far, and is available at multiple retailers. In the UK, anything below £1300 is a great price for an LG OLED from 2018, and last year's models are even cheaper and possibly better deals. In the US you're looking at something in the region of $1600 for a similar set, but prices might fall below that if we're lucky. If you are after a 4K TV for gaming, the LG on offer here really is a force to be reckoned with and the best in class for the money.

What to Look for in a 4K TV
Buying a 4K TV isn't as easy as you might think. Figuring out your budget is one thing, but then you've got to look at which TV offers the kind of performance you're after, and then which technology you want.
- Low input lag - input lag determines how long it takes for your controller input to be seen on the screen
- HDR - Most 4K TVs support HDR, but only TVs with a high level of brightness (nits) can properly display the HDR signal properly without a loss of detail.
- Dimming - Edge Lit TVs often produce bands of light compared to backlit TVs that have lighting zones across the whole screen.
Are 4K TVs Good for Gaming?
That is a question that isn't as simple to answer as you might think. It really comes down to what consoles you own. If you're gaming on a Nintendo Switch, you're not going to want to play on a 4K TV. The Switch's video output maxes out at 1080p, and while it can look decent on an OLED or top of the line 4K LED set, cheaper TVs will result in a less than impressive image and you'll be better off with a 1080p TV. If you're gaming on a PS4 Pro or an Xbox One X then you really aren't going to get the most out of those consoles unless you are playing on a 4K TV. OLEDs tend to give the best overall picture quality, but some LED sets can offer better peak brightness for HDR.
