The Samsung QN65Q70RAFXZA 65-inch Q70R 4K HDR smart TV is down to $949.99 at Best Buy. The sale is part of Best Buy's deals of the day with a price that's set to expire by the end of the day. This deal is nearly $250 off what the TV is going for at other retailers. You can find it going for $1,198 at B&H (opens in new tab), Newegg (opens in new tab), and other places. The Best Buy deal is as low as this TV has ever gotten, and since this 2019 model has been discontinued to make way for modern sets it's doubtful you'll see it drop this low anymore.

Samsung's Q70R includes Direct Full Array 4X tech, which provides an array of backlighting that can enhance the contrast between blacks and whites to help create a better image. The Quantum Processor also helps upscale content that's not quite up to 4K specs yet, giving you sharp detail and refined color even when watching less-than-4K resolutions. The TV supports several formats of HDR including Hybrid Log Gamma and HDR10+. The Quantum HDR 8X fine-tunes colors and black levels for vivid picture details.

Use the smart platform to gain quick access to all your favorite streaming apps. With the built-in Wi-Fi, you can easily stream your favorite TV shows and movies. Access Apple TV, Disney+, Netflix, Hulu, and more. If your favorite app isn't integrated, you can use Screen Mirroring or casting to move your app from your smartphone to your TV.

Other features include Motion Rate 240, two built-in speakers with advanced sound, four HDMI inputs, two USB inputs, and a V-chip for parental controls.

Use the Ambient Mode function to keep your TV useful even when you're not using it. Complement your living room's aesthetic with enticing visuals or even relevant information like the news and weather you can quickly glance at.
