Orig. $598 From $430

Woot is now discounting nearly the entire lineup of Samsung’s latest Frame 2022 4K AirPlay 2 TVs. Shipping is free for Prime members, though you’ll have to pay a $6 delivery fee otherwise. Across the board, these are mostly down at all-time lows, if not sitting in at the second-best prices we’ve seen. Everything starts at $429.99 for the 32-inch Frame TV, which is down from its usual $598 going rate and matching the best we’ve ever seen. Also on sale are refurbished models with even steeper discounts attached, which we break down below the fold.

Unlike your average TV, Samsung’s Frame lineup mixes things up with a more aesthetically-pleasing design that ditches the usual black plastic bezels for a picture frame-inspired design. So living up to that Frame naming convention, the TVs sport 4K HDR QLED panels with 120Hz refresh rates up on the wall, while also taking advantage of the new Matte Display anti-glare screen so content looks great in any room. That also helps enable the unique design that blends in amongst the rest of your home decor and can even double as a digital picture frame for both personal photos and gallery-quality artwork. Get all the details in our launch coverage and head below for more.
