Glossary of TV Terms:

AMD FreeSync: This is a type of synchronization technology for LCD and OLED displays. In other words, it makes the picture look a lot better with no screen tearing, even if the screen refreshes faster than the input device.

Dolby Vision: Dolby Vision is a collective term that refers to a set of different technologies that can bring a movie or TV show to life, usually by improving the contrast, color depth and other similar visual aspects.

DTS Studio Sound: This is a type of post-processing software that helps create a more surround-sound like experience.

HDR: An acronym for “high dynamic range.” Think about taking a picture outside on a bright day; some parts will be in focus, while others will be too dark or too bright. HDR blends those parts together to provide the ideal image that clearly displays every part of the picture.  

Nits: A nit is a unit of measurement for how bright a TV (or any display, really) can become. For HDR to work well, you’ll need at least 500 nits, but the brighter a TV can get, the better.

Refresh rate: The number of times an image appears per second on a TV. It’s measured in hertz, or Hz. The standard refresh rate is 60Hz for 4K TVs, although some can go much higher — up to 120Hz or 240Hz. The higher the refresh rate, the smoother the action appears on-screen.

Upscaling: A TV will always try to display an image at the TV’s resolution, but some shows (those filmed even as recently as the early 2000s) will only be at 1080p at best, and often 720p or lower. Upscaling uses software to add more pixels to the image to make it match that of a higher-resolution TV without affecting the image quality.

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday is on Friday, November 25. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and is historically a great time to get next-level deals on a range of must-have items.

Does Black Friday have deals on everything?

Not everything is on sale for Black Friday, but a lot is. You’ll see impressive discounts on items such as air fryers, TVs, vacuums, furniture, sneakers, clothes, electric toothbrushes, makeup and so much more. If there’s an item you’ve been waiting to go on sale, it’s most likely to be marked down during Black Friday season.

Does every store have sales?

Not every store has sales for Black Friday, but many do. That includes major retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Best Buy, Lowe’s, Home Depot and more.

Will inflation impact Black Friday this year?

Last year consumers spent nearly $9 billion on Black Friday, just slightly less than the year prior — proving that the economic volatility triggered by the pandemic most likely impacted spending habits. Experts say it’s unclear how inflation will affect Black Friday behavior this year, but they have their theories.

“According to our survey, 70% of shoppers are taking inflation into consideration this year,” confirms McGrath. That means people are not necessarily waiting for Black Friday itself to maximize savings, and instead “beginning their holiday shopping earlier than ever in an effort to spread out cash flow,” adds Gall.

To meet this demand, major retailers are already launching big ‘pre-sale’ events leading up to Black Friday. “Spreading out their shopping will help to prevent [consumers’] budgets from taking a hit all at once,” notes Ramhold. One possible caveat? “If starting prices are higher, then that means [potentially] higher deal prices when all is said and done.”

Are supply chain delays and excess inventory still a thing this year?

“Any supply chain issues we’re seeing this year aren’t at the same level as those in 2021, but that doesn’t mean they’re totally gone,” says Ramhold of the pandemic-related shortages and delivery delays we experienced last year. So, barring any worst-case scenarios, we should be fine in that regard,

“Retailers have had a year to plan to avoid the massive delivery delays we saw last year, so shopping Black Friday should leave plenty of time for stuff to arrive before the holidays,” notes McGrath. “But that’s assuming no big surprises or snags. Retailers are still overstocked with pandemic-popular items, like small home goods, countertop appliances and casual clothing. So expect good deals in those categories.”
