One of Best Buy's deals of the day features the Vizio OLED55-H1 55-inch OLED 4K SmartCast TV, one of our favorite new OLED TVs and the first offered by Vizio. This TV normally sells for around $1,300 or more. Today you can get it on sale for $999.99. That price won't last long, though, so you'll want to act fast before it disappears. The 65-inch version is also on sale for $1,499.99, just a few hundred more and $500 off its regular price.

The OLED TV features a bezel-less design, 120Hz refresh rate for gaming with unique features that make the TV more responsive in VR, and a powerful chip for 4K upscaling. Supports HDR, the SmartCast platform for apps, and voice control.

I mean, let's talk about OLED first. It is the top of the line when it comes to getting the best image quality out of your set. Vizio's OLED panels have the blackest blacks and whitest whites, and the contrast is unprecedented. Every single pixel is perfect and you'll notice the colors. Vizio even uses the OLED Ultra Color Spectrum to bring you more than one billion colors, which stand out even more against the deep blacks. There's a reason OLED usually means a price so high the average person can't afford it, so it's just crazy that Vizio can offer them for so little.

The TV does a lot more than just exist with an OLED panel, though. It also includes a bezel-less frame and a profile as thin as 4mm. It's designed with built-in cable management and will look great wherever you put it.

With a 120Hz refresh rate and the ProGaming Engine, Vizio's TV is going to be awesome for video games as well. Hook up your new Xbox or PlayStation that you got during Black Friday and play on the smoothest screen you've ever seen.

The OLED TV uses a super smart and super fast processor to upscale everything to the best possible 4K content. If it's not already 4K, the TV will still make the image pop as much as possible. It supports HDR through Dolby Vision, HLG, and HDR10+ as well. With 4K resolutions, an OLED panel for contrast, and HDR support for image quality watching your favorite shows on this TV will be like a new experience.

Integrate with your existing smart home, too. It is compatible with Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, or Amazon Alexa. You can control your entire smart home straight from the TV or even control the TV yourself. Use the SmartCast app to view all your favorite streaming apps without needing any external hardware.
