We found the LG (40UB8000) 40″ 4K Ultra HD 120Hz Smart LED TV for a very low $599.99 shipped from Focus Camera. That’s half-off the list price, $300 less than Amazon, and the lowest we’ve ever seen.
This Ultra HDTV can display 4 times the quality of Full HD 1080p. That’s 8.3 million pixels producing incredibly detailed and life-like images. Netflix can stream true 3,840×2,160 4K media via LG’s Smart TV interface or you can utilize LG’s TRU-4K Engine technology for your existing TV, movies and games. TRU-4K uses a multi-step process to examine your content and upscale it from HD to 4K Ultra HD.
If 4K is still too far in the future for you, we found a few deals on 1080p TVs that will still do the trick. Walmart has the RCA 46″ 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV for only $299.99. That’s $200 off the regular price and the best price we could find for it.
This RCA 46″ LED HDTV lets you experience full HD entertainment from your movies, TV shows and games. It has 2 HDMI connections and it features USB Media Play for viewing photos and listening to music.

Samsung has not only been explosive in the smartphone market, but the South Korean-based company also continues to succeed in an area where it has long dominated: the television set. Samsung has broken ground before in several areas, but now it is putting a new television out on the market that embodies all the newest technologies in the HDTV space. Priced at hefty $9,500 and up, the Samsung UN75ES9000 is a 75-inch HDTV with all the bells and whistles: 240Hz, 3D, Wi-Fi, pop-out web cam, and more to combine top-specs with huge-screen real estate. Usually large-screened sets like this one tend to compromise specs for size, so this is definitely an interesting approach for those for whom money isn’t much of an object.
Announced in July and with initial availability in August, the Samsung UN75ES9000 features a 1,920-by-1,080 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio, 35000000:1 dynamic contrast, three HDMI ports and USB ports, and various other connections like wireless and Ethernet (not to mention full 2D and 3D). It is wall mountable and ships with the stand, just for your living room.
Beyond the massive hardware, the ES9000 features Samsung’s Smart TV software that includes various apps and an easy-to-browse user interface for customers. On the Smart Hub, Samsung made available apps that allow customers to get access to content through services like Hulu Plus, YouTube, vudu, Netflix, and other digital content providers. Additionally, Samsung added a social layer via Twitter and Facebook to enable online discussion “all on one screen sharing.” To benefit applications like Skype, Samsung included a built-in camera that Samsung claims to be “hidden” when not in use. For the audiophiles in the crowd, Samsung also included its DNSe (Digital Natural Sound engine) that enhances sound to cater to user’s presets. Not enough? Samsung throws in a gesture controlled Angry Birds game with more gesture controlled features to come.
Note Samsung’s pride in this TV in the video below.
The price is obviously a little steep. But, for the television geeks out there, this television seems to be nothing short of amazing. While larger 4K televisions are beginning to hit the market priced at $20,000 and beyond, you can find the Samsung ES9000 reasonably priced well south of the $10,000 retail price.
