Best John Lewis TV deals

Here are some great prices we've spotted so far.

LG 43UP77006LB - £349

LG 43UP77006LB
  • 43-inch 4K TV
  • LCD display
  • Supports HDR10 and HLG HDR formats

We like: Good speech clarity

We don't like: Some colour issues in certain scenes

This 43-inch set is one of LG's cheaper models, but a 4K TV from a leading brand for less than £400 is a rare thing. Does the low price of this 43-inch TV mean it's not one of the better models available?

Check our LG 43UP77006LB review to find out or buy it now for £349 from John Lewis (includes a five-year guarantee).

LG 50UP77006LB - £448

LG 50UP77006LB
  • 50 inch
  • 4K LCD
  • Basic HDR formats: HDR10 and HLG

We like: HDR is used well, clear dialogue

We don't like: 4K detail is inconsistent, awkward menus

This model is a low-end set in LG's range, but it still comes with voice control and the same accessibility features as more expensive LG TVs. This includes grayscale to improve clarity for colour-blind viewers and a high-contrast mode to emphasise text on menus.

4K only manages high detail in some scenes. It's not blurry at all, but it should be eye-poppingly precise.

This TV's currently £448 at John Lewis, and it comes with a five-year guarantee.

Read our LG 50UP77006LB review to check if it's right for you, or buy it now at John Lewis.

Samsung UE55AU7100KXXU - £449

  • 55-inch 4K TV
  • LCD screen
  • Supports basic and advanced HDR formats: HDR10, HLG and HDR10+

We liked: Phenomenal 4K picture, nicely balanced sound

We didn't like: HDR isn't used well, sound can be thin

The UE55AU7100's 4K footage is tremendous and feels as though you're watching a TV twice the price. The level of detail is a match for some of Samsung's most high-end models - it's a phenomenal achievement.

It's not all roses for the 7100 though. we didn't think the HDR effect was particularly good and though the sound is nicely balanced, it's not as deep or full as better TV's. You might want to add a sound bar or home cinema system through the HDMI eARC input, which is easy enough.

If you're still undecided, take a peek at our Samsung UE55AU7100KXXU review, or buy it now for £449 with a five-year guarantee included from John Lewis or with a one-year warranty for £448 from AO

LG OLED55B16LA - £949

  • 55-inch TV
  • LG OLED
  • Basic and advanced HRD formats: HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision IQ

We liked: Great remote

We didn't like: The body rattles at certain audio pitches

The audio is rich and of good quality. However, this TV did rattle at certain pitches in our tests - although we found this was rare.

This is a great TV for gamers and has lots of gaming features, including FreeSync, VRR and a 120Hz screen. In the past, this TV has cost as much as £1,499 so this is a good deal. Read our expert LG OLED55B16LA review to find out more.

Buy now for £949 at retailers including John Lewis (including a five-year guarantee), but it is £20 cheaper at AO and Boots.

LG OLED48C14LB - £999
LG OLED48C14LB

  • 48-inch
  • 4K OLED screen technology
  • Supports both basic and advanced HDR formats: HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision and Dolby Vision IQ

We liked: HDR is used well

We didn't like: Some confusing menus

48-inch OLEDs are relatively new and are great for anyone who wanted an OLED, but didn't have room for a 55-inch set. This is one of LG's more high-end OLED TVs and it's from its most popular range.

It's currently on offer at John Lewis for £999, and comes with a five-year guarantee.

Read our full LG OLED48C14LB review, or buy it now from John Lewis.However, you can save a further £20 and pick this TV up for £979 at Boots and Hughes (including a five-year guarantee).

LG OLED55C14LB - £1,179

  • 55-inch
  • 4K OLED screen technology
  • Supports basic and advanced HDR formats: HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Vision IQ

We liked: Vibrant, life-like colours

We didn't like: Newly-designed operating system (we preferred the older version)

This is a decent saving for this LG OLED TV and the cheapest price we could find right now. This model is from one of LG's most high-end ranges. It's an OLED - each pixel in the display creates its own light, unlike LCDs and QLEDs which have backlights. OLEDs tend to have the best contrast and more control over which parts of the screen are lit.

Read our full LG OLED55C14LB review, or buy it now for £1,179 from John Lewis or Hughes (with a five-year guarantee). You'll also find it in the winter sales at AOand Boots for the same price

Sony XR-55A80J - £1,289
Sony XR-55A80J

  • 55-inch TV
  • OLED screen technology
  • Uses Sony's latest Bravia Core processor

We like: Great HDR

We didn't like: some scenes look a bit drab

It's Sony's entry-level OLED TV, but you still get the same Bravia Core processor found in Sony's most high-end OLEDs. It's still pricier than many entry-level OLEDs though.

Read our full Sony XR-55A80J review, or buy it now from John Lewis for £1,289 with a five-year guarantee included.

Panasonic TX-55JZ1500B - £1,599
Panasonic TX-55JZ1500B

  • 55-inch 4K TV
  • OLED technology
  • Basic and advanced HDR formats: HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision

We like: Exciting HDR effect, nicely balanced sound

We didn't like: Cluttered menus and remote

Few TVs make more of HDR than this one. Darker parts of the picture plunge into rich gloom feeling thick and deep. We could still pick out detail though, which is an impressive feat, and it really makes good on the promise of HDR to improve the picture.

The menus are a bit cluttered and it's not always easy to find the settings you want. Apart from that this TV offers value for money, especially at the reduced price of £1,599.

You can snap it up for £1,599 from John Lewis, and it's also on offer for this price at Currys both with a five-year guarantee included, or at Hughes. This is still a lot of money, though, so before you buy find out what our tests discovered in our Panasonic TX-55JZ15000B review.

Sony XR-65A80J - £1,789

Sony XR-65A80J
  • 65-inch 4K TV
  • OLED technology
  • Basic and advanced HDR formats: HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision

We like: Fantastic use of HDR, detailed 4K picture, rich and powerful sound

We didn't like: Lower resolution content should be more balanced

We wish everything was available in 4K HDR because most TVs can do it justice. Few do it as well as the A80J though. The brighter parts of the picture shine out like there's an FBI torch behind them and dark parts feel like a true absence of light. Perfect for horror films and spy dramas.

The sound could be wider and expand into the room, but its secondary to everything the speakers get right, which is everything else.

Normally priced at £2,199, this might be worth considering at £1,789 at John Lewis (comes with a five-year guarantee). To see if it's the right TV for you, read our full Sony XR-65A80J review.

Panasonic TX-65JZ2000B - £2,699

  • 65-inch
  • 4K TV OLED technology
  • Basic and advanced HDR formats: HDR10, HDR10+ HLG, Dolby Vision

We like: Gorgeous 4K picture, fantastic sound that fills the room, good features for gamers

We didn't like: Colours look a bit warm at lower resolution

The Panasonic TX-65JZ2000B looks glorious and sounds stunning too. The 4K picture has wonderful colour accuracy giving you a lifelike image that feels natural. Good 4K footage goes beyond being simply lifelike though. It pushes further, creating something hyper-realistic with a tangible depth that feels almost three dimensional.

Read our full Panasonic TX-65JZ2000B review to find out more about this model.

In the past it's retailed for more than £3,000, but you can buy it now from John Lewis for £2,699 with a five-year guarantee. PRC Direct and Sonic Direct offer the same guarantee and price.

Best John Lewis laptop deals

HP Chromebook 14a-nd0001na - £199.99

  • AMD 3015Ce
  • 4GB of Ram
  • 64GB SSD

We like: Reasonably portable

We didn't like: Fairly basic in terms of specs, no memory card slot

If you're after a basic laptop, this is one to consider. It doens't have a memory card slot, or much in the way of storage space, and it's also worth knowing that Chromebooks generally aren't suited to heavy-duty tasks like photo-editing.

But, depending what you need a laptop for, you might not mind that. It's reasonably portable and starts up nice and quickly.

Read the full HP Chromebook 14a-nd0001na review to see whether it will suit your needs.

The HP Chromebook 14a-nd0001na is currently on offer at John Lewis for £199.99 with a two-year guarantee.

  • 64GB SSD

We like: Ultra-portable

We didn't like: No memory card slot

This low-cost laptop has a two-in-one design: you can use it as a laptop or as a tablet-like device. It's easily portable, too. On the downside, there's no memory card slot. One to consider if you're after a basic laptop.

Read the full Acer Spin 311 CP311-3H review before deciding whether you should buy it.

Now available from John Lewis for £199 with a two-year guarantee, reduced from £279.

Acer Swift 1 SF114-34 - £319.99

  • Intel Pentium Silver N6000
  • 4GB of Ram
  • 128GB storage

We like: Thin and lightweight

We didn't like: Narrow screen viewing angles

This laptop has a full HD screen - which you won't always get for a laptop of this price - and two USB ports, a USB-C, HDMI and a headphone jack.

This is a 2021-vintage Pentium so it won't be far off the speed of some Core i3 laptops. Have a read of the full test results in our Acer Swift 1 SF114-34 review.

John Lewis currently has this model on offer for £319.99 with a two-year guarantee.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go - £579

  • Intel Core i5
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB storage

We like: Very light

We didn't like: Poor web browsing battery life

This laptop's screen and speakers could be a bit better and battery life when browsing the web is poor. But, for the price, the Surface Laptop Go is well worth a look. Particularly if you want something that's highly portable, as it only weights 1.12kg.

It's now available from John Lewis for £579, which comes with a three-year guarantee. Read our Microsoft Surface Laptop Go review to see if it should be on your shortlist.

Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 7000 (7415) - £599

Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 7000 (7415)

  • AMD Ryzen 5 5500U
  • 4GB Ram
  • 256GB SSD

We like:Fast start-up

We didn't like: Laggy touchpad

If you're looking for a fast laptop, the Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 7415 is worth considering. The flexibility of using it as a tablet could prove useful, too - it's touchscreen is a 360-degree hinge, so if you fold the keyboard backwards, you have yourself a huge 14-inch tablet.

It's now available from John Lewis for £599 with a two-year guarantee, but read our Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 7000 (7415) review first to make sure it's right for you.

Samsung Galaxy Book 15-inch - £599

Samsung Galaxy Book 15-inch
  • Intel core i5 processor
  • 8GB Ram
  • 256GB storage

We like: Quick performance, good battery life

We didn't like: Keyboard is cramped and could offer better touch

Because of its large screen size, this is a great laptop if you need a machine you can take on-the-go but which you primarily use at home.

this model supports the latest Wi-Fi standard - known as WiFi 6 -which can offer brilliant speeds if you have a router that supports it. Most supporting hardware only started to be released during 2020.

Microsoft Surface Book 4

  • AMD Ryzen 5 processor
  • 8GB Ram
  • 128GB SSD

We like: Light with excellent speakers

We didn't like: Not many ports, underwhelming web-cam

This is a thin and light (1.27kg) laptop with a great screen. However, it doesn't have many ports - only a USB-C, headphone jack and a magnetic Surface Connect. Although you can buy and attach a dock with extra ports, if you need them.

It's currently on offer at John Lewis for £599, which is a bit of a bargain - particularly as it comes with a two-year guarantee. Or read our full Microsoft Surface Book 4 13.5 Inch review to see if it meets your needs.

  • 64GB storage

We like: Great screen

We didn't like: Poor speakers

Apple MacBook Pro 13 (2020) - £1,187

  • 256GB storage

We like: Fantastic screen, rich-sounding speakers

We don't like: Only two ports

It doesn't have Apple's latest M1 processor, though - and you only get two USB-C ports, so you'll need to buy an adaptor to expand them if you want to plug more accessories in.
