It can be hard looking for a new TV, what with the copious amounts of jargon that makes parsing the different features a challenge. But Amazon Prime Day simplifies the task a little with some fantastic TV deals, including Samsung’s 85-inch Q80A 4K Smart TV that’s on sale for over $1,100 off right now. Normally $3,700, the 85-inch model is down to $2,600 (with an extra $200 knocked off by a coupon on the listing), plus you get another $200 Amazon credit with your purchase by using code IX6EQTI5E2T5 at checkout–effectively getting you the TV for $2,400. If you’re looking for a massive TV for your game room, this is one of the best Prime Day Samsung deals available now, alongside discounts on the company’s smartwatches, phones, and other tech.
The Q80A 4K Smart TV is a new 2021 model from Samsung, and notably, one of its four HDMI ports is an HDMI 2.1 input, which is needed to play games at 4K and 120Hz on your TV. Though it’s not a required feature for enjoying next-gen games on PS5 and Xbox Series X right now, it’ll let you get the most out of your powerful console. Unfortunately, there’s only one HDMI 2.1 port, but if you have only one of the next-gen consoles, that won’t be an issue.
There are plenty of technical terms buried in the Samsung Q80A’s product description–Quantum Processing, SpaceFit Sound, Quantum HDR 12X, etc.–but they all add up to an impressive TV that provides a rich image with impeccable sound (of course, there are plenty of Prime Day soundbar deals if you want to upgrade your audio even more). Thanks to features like adaptive tracking (which auto-adjusts the picture quality depending on the scene you’re watching and the ambient lighting around you) and object tracking sound (up-firing speakers that follow the noise of on-screen objects in motion), the Samsung Q80A creates an immersive cinematic experience in the comfort of your living room, with wide viewing angles that display the full picture no matter where you’re sitting.
In addition to its solid picture quality, the Samsung Q80A is equipped for a superb gaming experience. This TV lets you expand your aspect ratio from 21:9 to 32:9 with Super Ultrawide GameView. And its Game Bar gives you an onscreen menu for optimizing your game settings, including checking input lag, wireless headset connectivity, and frame rate to ensure you don’t get sniped in the latest Call of Duty: Warzone season.
