When big, beautiful TVs go on sale, we’re all ears (and eyes). There’s just nothing like watching your favorite movies and shows on a large screen.

Right now, you can score this TCL 50-inch Class 5-Series 4K Smart TV for just $420, or $180 off at Walmart. We can’t believe it either. If you want to give a great Christmas gift (to yourself or others) act fast—there’s no way this baby won’t sell out.

Want to score free shipping? Make sure you’re signed up for Walmart+. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 15-day trial here, but a quick three-question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid 30 days of use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.) Order it now and get it before Christmas Day.

Eye-popping color and brilliant picture quality

So what makes this 4K TV so special? It has a roomy 50-inch LED 4K display with Ultra HD resolution at 2160p. Simply put, colors are spectacular and black levels are dark—no murkiness here. Also on board: HDR settings (High Dynamic Range) for a theater-like vibe. Even gamers love this 4K TV’s brilliant picture and smooth motion.

“Great TV for the price,” raved a delighted five-star reviewer. “I got this primarily for gaming with a PS5, and let me tell you, the game mode makes a huge difference. Very little if any screen lag and all the different colors are super vibrant. Clear picture and great refresh rate. If you're like me and have been wanting a QLED but can't afford to spend over a grand on a TV, this is the TV for you.”

It’s the perfect size for any room in the house. Trust us, it’s big enough.

Roku built-in

Want to stream movies and TV shows? There’s built-in Roku (no need to hook up a separate box or stick), so you’ll get more than 500,000 video streaming channels, including all of the usual suspects like Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Prime Video, Hulu and more. The TV comes with four HDMI ports to connect a Blu-ray player, video game console and soundbar for deeper and richer audio.

Shared a satisfied Walmart shopper: “Best TV purchase for the money I've made in years!”

The TCL 4K TV is compatible with Google Assistant, so instead of scrolling through a grid of icons trying to find something to watch, you can use the voice assistant (via Google Nest Mini) instead. Just say something like, ‘Hey Google, play Tenet’ and you’ll be magically whisked away to an action-packed time loop.

“The picture on this TV is great,” added another five-star reviewer. “It is bright and shows every detail...The Roku apps are plentiful and simple to use. Games never looked so good. Setup is easy for a novice. I am not very familiar with TCL, but I am impressed thus far.”
