For all your post-holiday TLC, you need the perfect TV to kick back with your favorite shows, movies and more. Luckily, Amazon has your solution: the TCL 55-inch Class 4-Series 4K Smart Roku TV, on sale this weekend for $380 (was $600). 

The TCL 4-series has a big 55-inch 4K display with Ultra HD resolution, making colors vivid and bright and black levels dependably deep and dark (not murky and gray). Also on board: Roku, putting Oscar contenders, your favorite games, and the best TV series right at your fingertips. 

"I am not super tech-savvy by any stretch, but I was able to connect all the dots and the result is a fabulous TV, cable, streaming experience," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "Easy set-up, quick linking of my phone (second remote) and cable box and my streaming services (only two). The sound and picture can be adjusted (like any TV, really) and I chose a movie theater sound which is fabulous." Time for an upgrade, don't you think?
