Samsung Q6F 4K Ultra HD Smart TV (55")

Samsung's been long known for high-quality boob tubes, and their newest line—which uses special, super-small "Quantuam Dots," to create a QLED screen with brilliant colors, and Motion Rate 120 that makes fast action like that found on the gridiron look smooth as butter—is no exception. Technically, it's a 2017 model. But seeing as it's certainly not lagging on the technological front, the only byproduct of its "age" is a steep discount. ($999; amazon.com)
