Not sure if a TV you see is a great buy or just another run-of-the-mill, soon-to-be-returned bargain? Don't worry, all of the below are solid deals. There are a few screens that aren't quite the phenomenal home entertainment experience we'd expect, but we've placed those in a specially designated Cheap TV section.

When is Black Friday 2018?
Black Friday falls on November 23 2018 - i.e. the day after Thanksgiving.
Deals will continue through the weekend and culminate in the online shopping day we know as Cyber Monday, which happens on November 26 2018.
While we'll see the biggest deals on Friday and Monday, there's sure to be a number of deals dropping throughout the month of November leading up to Turkey Day. You can also count on a number of the best deals lasting through the holiday weekend - which means if you happen to miss Friday, Saturday and Sunday should still pack some of the better deals we're going to see all year.
And of course after that, it's basically Christmas, so it's not like the flurry of deals will completely die up when you hit December.
How to get the best Cyber Monday TV deals
You're off to a good start just by being here right now.
But in all seriousness, you'll find the best Cyber Monday TV deals by constantly scanning deal pages like these looking for 'flash sales' - deals that only last a few minutes but typically have the best prices on the stuff you're looking for. They sell out fast, especially when it's for something like a 65-inch 4K TV.
It's also a good idea to keep in mind a clear picture of what you're looking for. Chances are you don't just want any old TV - you want something at a certain size and maybe even from a manufacturer you trust. If that's the case, you'll have to do a little extra legwork to find the best deal on your dream screen but, trust us, you'll be happier having done the work.
If you can, you should also get a good idea of what TVs are new for 2018. To help with that part, we've put together guides to the 2018 line-ups of Samsung, LG, Sony, TCL and Vizio TVs, with descriptions of each TV.
It's also worth noting that the larger or more expensive sets will be the most likely to get massive reductions, and a few hundred off a $1,500 screen is the difference between purchase and an unclimbable paywall. More mid-range (sub-$1,000) sets will also be getting sizeable discounts, though if you're looking at budget offerings there's only so much cheaper they can go.
Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Newegg, and Amazon will be your best friends, but don't discount other outlets like Costco, Fry's, Abt and Crutchfield - many of whom will offer the same deals as the big box stores but with plenty more units in stock.
What to look for in a new TV
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is now considered a general standard for modern televisions and allows for a richer, more vivid picture quality. So if you're buying a new set you'll probably want this included.
There'll also be a lot of retailers shouting about '4K UHD' television displays. While having a 4K display isn't as crucial as HDR – there's only so much content available in 4K, after all – it will generally be found in higher quality sets, and might be good future-proofing if you're planning to hold onto this television for a while.
It goes without saying that 'smart' features like integrated apps, streaming services and browsers are now built right into most TVs nowadays – but just in case, check that you're getting a connected set that lets you access all these modern features. For what exactly this entails, we have a more fleshed out guide to each smart TV platform too.
