This is the best Black Friday TV deal under £500

The 50in Samsung BU8500 TV is selling for an all-time-low price of £419 for Black Friday

A significant proportion of Black Friday TV deals offer sizeable discounts on premium models, but this deal on the Samsung BU8500 features a meaningful price cut on a set that was already relatively affordable.

The BU8500 TV launched earlier this year, with the 50in model costing £699. That price has come crashing down to just £419 on Amazon, making this the best Black Friday TV deal under £500 we’ve seen so far.

It’s available for £479 at other retailers like Currys and John Lewis, so you’re saving yourself £60 by buying it from Amazon and getting it for the lowest price it’s ever been available.

The BU8500 is part of Samsung’s 2022 Crystal UHD range and, like last year’s AU9000, has high-end aspirations but a mid-range price tag. It forgoes Dolby Vision HDR support but is otherwise a well-specced option for those looking for an affordable 4K HDR TV.

It runs Samsung’s Tizen operating system, which provides intuitive access to a wide range of streaming services, while smart provision is comprehensive too, with Alexa, Google Assistant and Bixby all supported.

On the sonic front, the BU8500 uses Samsung’s Object Tracking technology to deliver a more immersive viewing experience by optimising the audio output based on the position of on-screen sound cues. And those with a compatible Q Symphony Samsung soundbar can synchronise audio across the TV and bar to elevate audio even further.

All that great functionality is packed into a slimline design that looks a lot more upmarket than this current price suggests – you simply won’t find a better-specced or better-looking TV from a big-name manufacturer for less this Black Friday.

If the 50in model doesn’t meet your requirements, there are also savings to be had on the 55in option, which is available for a record-low price of £499 after costing £769 just over a month ago. The smaller 43in model is also available for the cheapest it has ever been at £399.

Should you have your sights set on a larger screen, the 65in and 75in models can be picked up for discounted prices of £699 and £1,072, respectively. These aren’t all-time low prices, however, with both having been available cheaper last week.
