Update (3/23 3:10pm): Amazon has increased its price for the 55″ LG HDTV, but it’s still available at Best Buy for $499.99.
Amazon offers the LG Electronics 55-Inch 1080p 120Hz LED TV (model 55LB5900) for $499.99 with free shipping. It carries a list price of $800, but generally sells for around $600. This same deal is also available at Best Buy.
It features two HDMI inputs, USB 2.0, and a 120Hz refresh rate. It doesn’t include smart functionality, but you’re better off without it as you’ll most likely add a streaming media player. If you don’t yet have an Apple TV, I’d recommend picking up a refurbished model from Apple for $59.
Into 4K displays? Amazon offers the LG Electronics 40UB8000 40-Inch 4K Ultra HD 60Hz Smart LED TV for $499 Prime shipped. That’s tied with the lowest price we’ve seen on this display that can also be used as a monitor for high end PCs and Pro Macs.
