Without a doubt, the best OLED TV deal on a 55-inch TV this Black Friday was this incredible offer for the LG OLED55A1 . And, despite the warnings on the stockist website that it's selling fast, the deal is still live!

The A1 is LG's entry-level OLED TV for 2021. We've not yet reviewed it but LG's track-record with OLED TVs is absolutely incredible and at this super-low price the A1 simply can't be ignored. Even better, if 55 inches is too big for your lounge, you can buy a 48-inch version for just £765.

The LG OLED55A1 uses the same Alpha 7 Gen 4 picture processor as the B1 (just above in the 2021 LG TV range) and is still a very smart 4K HDR OLED TV with all of the apps and streaming services available on LG's webOS TV operating system.

NB: This deal is selling out quickly but we're updating this story with the cheapest price that's still in stock.

Pick up LG's entry-level OLED for 2021 at a low price. Not one we've tested but expect vibrant colours and deep blacks. There are no HDMI 2.1 sockets but it does still have eARC and ALLM.

The A1 doesn't feature all the same treats and technologies as the top-end LG OLEDs but it looks like a great way to get a taste of the action for a very reasonable outlay.

With eARC still onboard, it will be able to passthrough a Dolby Atmos signal to any Atmos-enabled soundbars or speakers that you attach. It's also compatible with the Dolby Vision dynamic HDR standard and Dolby Vision IQ, both of which should help squeeze out the best possible picture performance without you having to do much adjustment work.

The downgrades over those more premium OLED TVs are worth considering, though. The A1 uses a 60Hz rather than 120Hz panel, and it does without any HDMI 2.1 sockets. That makes it less well suited to next-gen gaming than its more premium siblings, but it could be an excellent option for non-gamers who want a low-cost OLED for movies and TV.

Of course, you could always buy the more premium 55in Philips 55OLED806 for £1199 or the Award-winning 55in Sony A80J for £1299 with both currently on the end of some excellent Black Friday discounts. Decisions, decisions.
