RCA 50-inch RTRU5027-W Roku Smart LED TV: $260
Walmart claims this model has an MSRP of $700, but that can’t be true. No one in their right mind is paying $700 for a 50-inch TV, 4K or no. That said, $260 is a great price for this 50-inch 4K Roku TV. It’s $20 cheaper than an equivalent 50-inch Roku model from TCL on Amazon.
$260 at Walmart
Samsung UN55NU6900: $398 (save $130)
Spending less than $400 for a 55-inch 4K TV is a good deal. This Samsung model features HDR for a more dynamic image and Samsung’s universal guide for accessing a variety of streaming services.
