Without further ado, let’s get started
Samsung JS85004K UHD Smart TV (UN55JS8500FXZA, UN65JS8500FXZA)
This 4K UHD TV is one of Samsung’s very best models for the year 2015 in our best consideration and it also represents one of the single best 4K UHD smart TV deals anywhere for this Black Friday.
The JS8500FXZA 4K UHD smart TV from Samsung is one of the top three televisions in the entire 2015 Samsung SUHD lineup, which is famous for the excellent quality of its colors thanks to quantum dot technology, its superb contrast levels (with HDR-capability for several SUHD models) and its general top-shelf quality.
Well, as one of these SUHD TVs, the JS8500 comfortably sits among the top three, right after the JS9500 and the JS9000. And as such, what you’ll be getting with this model is one seriously awesome level of performance, with superb contrast, some deep, rich and highly vibrant colors and some of the most future-proof connectivity technology available today.
In this year’s Black Friday sale, the JS8500 is selling in the form of its 55 and 65 inch models from Best Buy for price tags of $1,499 and $1,999 respectively. This particular model is also already on sale via Amazon.com for $1,997 for the 65 inch TV in case you want to get an early purchase in before Black Friday itself rolls around.

Our second place Black Friday 4K TV deals spot has to go to the Samsung JS7000 4K UHD smart TV.

The JS7000 offers more of Samsung’s excellent Quantum Dot color technology, excellent contrast, some very fine video rendering technology and is a real powerhouse when it comes to upscaling of any SD, HD and Full HD content you throw at it.

Best Buy is the real leader in sales of this model and will be offering the 50, 55, and 60 inch models for sale on their site for price tags that range from $799.99 for the smallest of the three to $1,299 for the 60 inch JS7000FXZA.
