Prime Day deals offer a $200 discount on my all-time favorite OLED TV

The LG C2 OLED TV is an astonishing set. Up until two weeks ago, I would have happily told you it was the best television I’ve ever bought. And coming from someone who’s owned as many OLED panels as he’d enjoyed hot dinners over the last few years, I don’t make that statement lightly.

In my eyes, the LG C2 is the best value OLED TV when it comes to price vs performance you can currently get. Right now, you can buy the LG C2 55-inch OLED for just $1,296 on Amazon. That’s a great savings of over $200, and I’d be surprised if the LG C2 drops much lower during this week’s October Prime Day event.

Up until very recently, the LG C2 was our number one pick here at Tom’s Guide for the best TV you can buy today. It’s only in the last few weeks that the newer LG G3 OLED has taken its little brother’s crown.

This is also the ideal time to buy this awesome OLED, not just because of Prime Day, but also due to the fact this is the time of year LG (and other TV manufacturers) actively look to shed last year’s stock thanks to the release of its 2023 line-up of ‘3-series’ OLED TVs.

I may have recently upgraded my LG C2 with the LG G3, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still own the best TV of 2022. I love the C2 so much, I owned two of them up until about 10 days, when I sold my main 77-inch model. My smaller 48-inch C2 still happily sits in my home office, where I use it as a replacement for one of the best gaming monitors. I still actively use this TV every day, and whether for work or playing the best Steam games, it’s served me incredibly well since I picked it up in a Black Friday sale late last year.

Whether you’re a hardcore gamer or want to enjoy the best Netflix shows in ultra pristine quality, the LG C2 OLED is still tough to top. The likes of the G3 and Samsung S95C may comfortably beat it when it comes to peak HDR brightness, but measuring in at over 800 nits, this is still a TV that gets sufficiently vibrant while still delivering the perfect black levels OLED as a tech is famed for.

With four HDMI 2.1 ports, the LG G2 is the perfect TV to pair with either a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Thanks to an excellently executed Game Mode, which supports fps-smoothing features like G-Sync, FreeSync Premium and ALLM, there are few better televisions out there to squeeze the best performance out of the best two consoles on the market.

This 55-inch model is pretty much the perfect sweet spot for most people, too. It’s probably to big use as a monitor in a home office, but this partiuclar C2 is the ideal size for your average lounge. And if you’re a little worried about the threat of OLED burn-in, don’t be. Thanks to LG’s ‘pixel-shifting’ features, the chances of getting an in-game HUD or sports score permanently scorched onto your TV’s screen is at an all-time low.

The LG G3 may end up being my favorite OLED TV of all time, but the C2 runs it pretty damn close. Unless you have the sort of obsessive Terminator eyes I’m cursed with, the brightness difference between both sets is unlikely to bother you.

If you want a wonderful TV at a great discount that will cover all your movie and game needs, the LG C2 OLED is an absolute no-brainer of a purchase.
