JVC's monster 70-inch 4K UHD TV just dropped to $520

Stocked with Roku goodness, it's even cheaper now than it was before the big bowl game.

70 inches of 4K TV goodness for $520.


If you've been biding your time on a new TV, wait no more: Walmart has a deal that, on paper at least, seems downright incredible. For a limited time, and while supplies last, the JVC 70-inch 4K UHD Roku TV is on sale for $519.99. That's $10 less than it was just a week ago and an amazingly good price for a TV of this size.

That's 70 inches. Football may be done for the season, but there's plenty of basketball headed your way. (March Madness, anyone?) On the spec front, the JVC ticks most of the important boxes, including three HDMI ports. However, there's one area to note: The TV has a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz. Some 4K TVs can do 120Hz, which can help reduce motion blur -- something there tends to be a lot of in sports. Whether or not that matters is a personal call; read The truth about 4K TV refresh rates to learn more.

CNET hasn't reviewed this model, but around 40 Walmart buyers collectively rated this 4.3 stars out of 5. In my opinion, you have to toss out a couple of the 1-star reviews; one because a customer received a cracked screen (which can happen with any TV and has no bearing on the TV itself) and one because the customer didn't understand the nature of a Roku TV (which is that you need a Roku account in order to use it).

But here's the thing about buying a TV from an actual store: If you're unhappy, you can take it back. You may need a large vehicle to do so, but it certainly beats dealing with shipping.
