    My goodness, that is a nice price. Makes me wish I lived near a Best Buy, definitely worth picking at least one up.

    For sure, I buying 3, 1 for myself and 2 to sell.

    This is a sweet deal, this will work as a PC monitor aswell.

    Much to my knowledge That offer is Limit 1 per customer from what I was told last night while working. Unless Best Buy Corp changes that Ideal you will if your in the top 10 on line, only be able to get 1. As of last night 11 p.m. here in NY people were already camping out at a few of the Long Island locations.

     

    Edit:  The other thing is, If they do decide to let people buy multiples of the LCD, You might deffinately get screwed if your not in like the top 5, Each BB location will have a maximum allocation of 10 units of the TV. I have not been informed if this deal will be made available online at all. But I know it's one of the Door Buster tickets we will hand out down the line before the store opens.

     I'm pretty sure you guys don't have thanksgiving lol, But alot of sites that are international tend to have Black Friday deals. There is also Cyber Monday coming up. I would just browse around and see what deals you can find today and tomorrow, as well as the monday coming up when Cyber Monday kicks off. Those are your best bet for the season coming up. These next couple of days are the kick off to the holiday season and the best deals are between friday and monday. Well Thursday now if your in the states :/ I goto be at work at 9 tonight to get ready for war lol.

    No, they're not online, and yes, they're almost certainly going to limit the customers to one each... and only the first few who walk in the door.

    Just as well, too. Buying multiple TVs just to resell them later at a higher price is completely selfish, because it's basically expecting to get the good deal yourself while actively denying others in the store what you feel entitled to. Of course, stores don't limit sales because of what they think is fair; to them it's strictly a matter of bad business to not have the supply of discounted items get spread around to as many people as possible (more happy shoppers for the same number of sold-at-a-loss products).

    Just as well. The TV is complete garbage.

     

    People are so dumb. At 6pm Thanksgiving night (6 hours before opening) there were at least a hundred people in line. I was heading to Walmart right next door, and the line stretched nearly to the Walmart doors. People at the end of the line all said they were there for the TV. By the time I left Walmart at 10, the line was at least 300 people all for the TV.

     

    How stupid do you have to be to be the 300th person in line and wait hours without finding out how many TVs they had?

     

    As a side note, I  skipped Best Buy and scored Madden 12, Black OPS, Singularity, and Arkham Asylum for PS3 for $28, then hit Old Navy and got 2 free cameras plus a ton of half price clothes, then got the $199 PS3 bundle at Gamestop all before Best Buy even opened.

     Did you rub it in their noob faces when you walked by?

    I'm the type of person who will pay a few hundred more bucks for perfection. I won't buy something 'half' price an get 'half' the quality lol.. I don't get why people are so hell bent on trying to always spend as little as they can. There is a reason folks, why things become so cheap. Not only to lure buyers in, but to clean their shelves of the old-non-selling items they want to do away with. Haven't you ever watched ' The Greatest Movie Ever Sold'?...

    Tech is not a Black Friday type merchandise.  Just get your loved ones a gift card.  Most electronics will be refreshed in January, so clawing your way for the remaining year end stock is rather pointless.

    60 hz is crap, just so you know ....

    reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.

  • bezadobezado Palm Harbor, FLPosts: 1,148Member

    60HZ, try playing games on it or watching fast action or sports. Terrible hdtv's, they pull consumers in with the price. The consumers who know nothing about it will buy them.

    OP hasnt reported back, I assume they either got smart and realized it was a really crappy TV, or they weren't in line long enough lol.

    Yes, it is cheap, but it is also a crap tv.  First of all, it is rated 2 stars out of 5, never a good sign.  Second of all, it is NOT 1080P.  It is only 1366x768 native resolution.  They are basically lying.  1080P = 1920 x 1080, this tv is closer to 720P.  The reason it is being sold so cheaply, is nobody wanted to buy it the rest of the year.  Yes, it is cheap, just don't expect a bright sharp picture from it.

    As far as the 60hz, nobody here understands how that works apparently.  For games, you need 60hz, not 120hz, though most 120 hz tvs allow you to do both.  Why?  These are not monitors, they are TVs.  When you connect your Xbox via HDMI to a TV, for example, you only output at 60 frames per second.  The TV gives you 120 frames per second via smoothing algorythims, which is horrible for games as it introduces delays, which will feel like lag.

    On a CRT (big old monitors) you needed more than 60hz because of flicker caused by how they fill the screen line by line.  This is not an issue in LCD monitors.   With LCD, you care about the panel response time, which isn't directly related to the hz.

    I did a another check, and the tv could be 1080P, but can't confirm, I have seen conflicting specs.

    I have a 480Hz plasma and I game all the time on it and no lag. Not sure if it can tell what the source is, but I don't change to any game mode or something like that :P Maybe it's different for plasma though.

    good looking out

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.
