Article updated on 20/11 at 19:20 with a restructuring of the best offers – With the current tensions between physical stores, online retailers and the government, Black Friday has taken a turn for the worse. At least, the term. Because although distributors avoid using the word “Black Friday”, instead favoring “promotions” or “Christmas tips”, the ball of reductions has indeed started as every year with most online distributors. The first discounts were even launched in October. Promotions had to last until November 30, but the government announced yesterday an agreement with online distributors to officially postpone Black Friday by one week, to December 4, which will allow physical distributors to participate. Concretely, this means that the “Christmas” promotions will continue normally until the end of November, then the “real” Black Friday will take over in December.
However, it is not said that the December promotions are better than those at the end of November. This is why we have nevertheless concocted a selection of the best offers of the moment on televisions and video projectors. Note that with the exception of video projectors, all the models presented here display a 4K definition. You know this if you often come to CNET, we keep telling you that it is useless nowadays to buy a TV without promotions, whether it is Sales, French Days and other Blacks. Friday. Once again, this golden rule proves its effectiveness because we have found some great promotions for you.
Before revealing the full list, here are the offers that we consider the cream of the crop:
1. LG 55BX to € 1149
The LG OLED BX in the 55-inch version is currently available for € 1,149 at Cdiscount against € 1,700 normally, making it the cheapest OLED TV we’ve seen so far. And no need to explain again how much OLED puts a beating on all other imaging technologies. It is therefore a very good proposition for us.
The LG OLED55BX6 features a 2020 4K 10-bit OLED panel supposed to cover 99% of the DCI-P3 colorimetric index and offering a refresh rate of 100 Hz. It is accompanied by the third generation LG Alpha 7 processor again based on the IA and WebOS 5.0 OS. The TV remains HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision compatible but not HDR10 + and has several HDMI 2.1 ports compatible therefore with eARC, ALLM or VRR functions for gamers. Moreover, the excellent level of latency of 13ms observed on the CXs remains the same on the BX. Finally, the TV has an audio system 2.2 with a total power of 40W (2 x 10W + 20W for the subwoofer). In short, the BX is once again the best quality / price ratio on the market for those who want to afford a state-of-the-art TV.
2. PHILIPS The One 50PUS8545 to € 599.99
In second position, here is Philips again, but not OLED this time. Indeed, it is the 50PUS8545, aka “The One” 2020 in 50-inch version (but in fact all sizes, or almost, are currently on sale). Temporarily sold € 599.99, this LCD LED TV already has a very interesting technical sheet for its price when it is not in store, but then it will be difficult to find better value for money.
Philips The One 50″ (50PUS8545)
If the Dutch firm gave the sobriquet of “The One” (“the good” or “the unique” in French) to its new 8545 series, it is because the latter embeds the most efficient functions and technologies of the manufacturer. for a low price. Thus, there is a Direct LED 4K VA LCD panel coupled with the famous in-house P5 processor, wide HDR compatibility (HDR10, HDR10 +, HLG, Dolby Vision), Android TV and Ambilight dynamic lighting 3 sides, these lights that follow image and which are the particularity of Philips TVs. In short, excellent value for money.

On a completely different note, you will currently find the Samsung The Frame 2020 43-inch version TV / digital board at a price of € 899 against € 1099 usually. To do this, you will have to buy your television 999 € then subscribe to the reimbursement offer set up by Samsung (you will find all the information at this address). In itself it is not the reduction of the century either, but it is operated on a solid product that continues to seduce many art and design lovers year after year.
Samsung The Frame 2020 QE43LS03T
Samsung’s The Frame is an original 4K QLED display halfway between a TV and a digital board. It has an “Art Mode” allowing it to display a work (or photos) when it is not in use and, thanks to its movement detection system, to automatically switch off when we leave the room. Important detail: it has the OneConnect remote box, which contains most of the components, allows easier access to the connections and greater finesse than many other LCD models. With an elegant frame that can be customized to suit your taste and interior, The Frame is undoubtedly the most designer TV in its class, but even if its picture quality has improved since previous versions, it is not. not the best on this point at its price point. It nevertheless remains the benchmark TV for lovers of Art and design.
