Cheap OLED TVs are a rarity but Walmart has a great deal on one of the best OLED 4K UHD televisions you can buy. Right now there's $903 off the multi-award-winning LG OLED C9 55-inch, with further savings to be had on the 65-inch C9 and the more high-tone E9. It's the kind of sale you'd normally expect to find in the Cyber Monday deals, in fact.

Buy LG OLED C9 55-inch for $1,596.99 at Walmart. Was $2,499.99 – save $903

Buy LG OLED C9 65-inch for $2,496.99 at Walmart. Was $2,996.99 – save $500

Buy LG OLED E9 65-inch for $2,996.99 at Walmart. Was $4,299.99 – save $1,303

The 55-inch C9 is probably the best deal of the three above but if you're looking for a real statement TV, the bigger and more luxe E9 might turn your head. Please note that in terms of visual quality, the screen in the E9 is identical to the cheaper C9.

The C9 offers incredibly cinematic 4K and upscaled HD visuals, supports Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound, and then cements its appeal with a genius-level smart TV system that makes it easy to find the content you want. It's also excellent at upscaling standard def, and handling of contrast and black levels is way better than what even the best LCD TV can pull off.

The E9 range uses the same panel as the C9 so what you're paying extra for here is, as LG puts it, "Flawless glass design… Timeless. Pristine. A view so clear, it's beautiful whether turned off or on." ie: the case looks nicer than the C9's. With over 1,000 bucks off, it starts to look even more attractive…

Why should you buy an LG OLED 4K TV?

LG makes the OLED panels that all other brands use. So while you can quibble over precisely which TV brand you like best, clearly LG has an in-built advantage when it comes to getting the most out of OLED.

As well as the fantastic colour and contrast and 'inifinite' black levels that OLED serves up, LG's 4K UHD TVs also use HDR (high dynamic range) image buffing to create something truly special with compatible films and TV shows from Blu-ray disks, Netflix, Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video and elsewhere. 

However, another great thing about LG's TVs is that they do an excellent job of upscaling 1080p HD video without HDR and even good quality standard-def material is scrubbed up to look perfectly passable. 

LG's webOS smart TV platform is also arguably the best of the big brands' efforts, making it easy to find TV shows, streamed content and additional sources plugged in via the 4 HDMI sockets. A wealth of apps is available, so you'll never run out of things to watch.

Finally, LG's TVs are very attractive slabs of metal and glass that will grace any living room.

Duncan Bell

Duncan is the former lifestyle editor of T3 and has been writing about tech for almost 15 years. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. His current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
