If you’re in the market for a new big-screen TV, look no further than this year’s Labor Day sales. Though Labor Day isn’t exactly known for television deals — mattresses, appliances, and clearance summer clothes are much more likely — this year’s sales include a spectacular sale on the TCL 65S421 4 Series 4K 65” set for just $448 at Walmart (you’ll find it at other retailers as the 65S425). That gives you a lot of TV for your money.
While the TCL 4 Series TV isn’t the best TV under $500, it is the best 65-inch model under $500. In testing by Rtings, the S425 received high marks for low input lag (important for gamers) and its smart TV interface and a 7.1 out of 10 for picture quality. CNET also praises the S425’s smart TV features and give it a 7 out of 10.
It’s no surprise that reviewers love the smart TV interface becuase the TCL 65S421 has all of the streaming features of a Roku streaming player built right in, so it’s easy to access your favorite streaming services. Roku lets you stream content from hundreds of different channels, including a few that can stream 4K video — like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and CuriosityStream — to take advantage of this set’s high resolution.
This 65” set sells from TCL itself for $799, so grabbing it for just under $450 is a great buy.
