Walmart.com tonight will sell a 42-inch Smart HDTV for $88 and a 65-inch Smart 4K TV for $228 as part of the retailer’s early Black Friday sale.
Both sets are onn TVs, which is Walmart’s exclusive brand for a variety of electronics including televisions, headphones, speakers and tablets, among other items. Walmart uses onn (yes, it’s lower case) to woo customers looking for bargain prices. Once in the store, they may buy the onn, or they buy something better. But either way, it’s good for Walmart.
The prices for the two TVs will be good from the start of the sale, which begins tonight at 7 p.m. ET, to November 8. However, supplies are limited so act fast if you like the deal. The discounts will also only be available at Walmart’s web site, not in the stores.
We don’t know much about the two TVs such as whether they offer a decent picture or will perform reliably for a number of years. (The 65-inch set does come with Roku inside.) There are no reviews of either set from a credible publication. However, some tech journalists have given other onn products, including TVs, mixed reviews, noting that they work acceptably but often cut corners in manufacturing. (Consumer Reports has said the TVs might actually be manufactured by Element for Walmart. Element is another low-cost, medium-quality TV brand.)
