Welp. Super Bowl is coming up. Not for my team. Chances are, not for your team either. But you’re still probably going to watch it. Need a new TV?
This 40″ model from TCL is one I’ve been eyeballing. It’s been favorably reviewed by The Wirecutter, twice. Well, that’s the 32″ and 50″ models. I like the 40-incher. I already have a 32″ and would like to go slightly bigger, and 50″ is too big. So 40″ it is!
What do you get? 1080p and a bunch of ports: 3 HDMI, 1 USB, RF, Composite, Headphone Jack, Optical Audio Out. But the cool bit is the built-in Roku and the minimalist Roku-inspired remote.
That $299 price just seems to be the price though it’s technically “29% off” list. You can save a few bucks by removing the Roku feature with this guy.
Complaints? The picture quality is supposed to be very good for the price, but you could pay more and get more. If you’re upgrading from an older TV, you’re unlikely to feel short-changed as it’ll be a serious step-up. I want one. I may buy one.
More Deals Worth a Look:
- Get a cheap Windows 10 laptop for $150.
- The Logitech G710 Mechanical Keyboard for $49. It was this low once on Amazon on Black Friday. The catch is that you’d have to pick it up at Fry’s if you pull the trigger.
- HyperX Cloud II Headset bundled with Rainbow Six Siege for $99. Why not bundle the best gaming headset on the market with the newest “tacticool” game release and drop the price lower than the headset itself has been since… last October. Crazy. Note that the product description is wrong on Amazon. The download of RS:S is for PC only, and the headset is the one compatible with a number of devices (including PS4). The RSS download is not for PS4.
