If it's big-screen PC gaming thrills you seek, Black Friday 2023 has you covered. Half decent 55-inch 4K TVs kick off at just under $350, while even a monster 65-inch OLED can be had for sub $1,300.

The 55-inch TV in question is a TCL model with basic HDR chops and 500 nits of brightness. It'll only do 60Hz at 4K (120Hz is supported at 1440p), but if you're on a tight budget, you're probably not planning on pairing it with a megabucks GPU. It's a bit of a steal for $349.99 on BestBuy.

OK. Alright. It's only 60Hz. But it's a 55-inch QLED HDR 4K TV. For $349. As it happens, it will actually do 120Hz with variable refresh, but only at 1440p. And it's good for 500 nits peak brightness. It ain't half bad for the money.

Price check: Amazon $349

2. LG UltraGear 48GQ900 | 48-inch | 138Hz | 4K | OLED | $699.99 at BestBuy

This 48-inch 4K OLED monitor is really a tweaked LG TV. But at this price, who's complaining? It's good for 138Hz, supports HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4, is rated at 0.1ms for GtG response and makes a lot of smaller, lower resolution OLED monitors look painfully overpriced.

LG's B3 line of OLEDs is a cheaper alternative to the C3. It has a less capable processor and doesn't have the Evo Brightness Booster feature. But it's still a glorious 65-inch 4K OLED running at 120Hz.

For PC usage, we tend to prefer Samsung's QD-OLED panels to LG's W-OLED thanks to the former's superior full screen brightness. This is a 55-inch model, runs at 120Hz and is about as bright an OLED as you're going to find at this price point.

Of the OLED options, perhaps the most intriguing is the LG 48GQ900-B. Strictly speaking, it's a monitor with both HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 inputs. But it's very much TV-derived with its 48-inch OLED panel. 

That's probably why you can now snag this full 4K model with 138Hz refresh for just $699 from BestBuy. It sure makes a 27-inch 1440p OLED gaming monitor for $800-plus seem like a very stingy deal.

A slightly more conventional choice is the LG B3 OLED. The 65-inch model comes in at $1,296.99 on Amazon. It's a pretty straight forward 120Hz 4K model and lacks some of the more expensive LG C3's features, including Evo Brightness Booster. But it's a massive amount of high-refresh  4K OLED for the money.

But if you favour brightness and quality over absolute size, the Samsung S90C in 55-inch trim could be your best bet. It's similarly priced to the LG B3 65-inch at $1,297.99 on Amazon. But Samsung's QD-OLED panel tech performs much better when it comes to full-screen brightness, which is so important on the PC.

Whichever one of these big panels you go for, you're getting the kind of deal that wouldn't have seemed possible just a few years ago. There's an awful lot of valuen on offer here.
