Isn't the Walmart Vizio supposed to be $688?? Also I think Sears is going to have a Toshiba LED 1080p 50" for $300 as a doorbuster item

Westinghouse 50" LCD 1080p HDTV - $349.00

Wow that is low. I'm betting this is a bad TV?

Without checking the specs I can say they're probably liquidating all non-LED/Plasma stock. Could also be a 720p version. Also, Westinghouse.

I'm still using my Westinghouse 42" LCD from 2006. It was $400 less than the $2000 going price back then of 42" HDTVs. It had some issues (1080P on only one input, other two digital inputs 1080i) but continues to work well.

That being said, I'm now shopping for a larger screen, and will demote it to bedroom use.

A Panasonic 50" Viera Plasma HDTV (TC-P50X5) - $299.99

720p or not, that's a bargain.

Holy crap!

Dunno though, Amazon left a bad taste in my pocketbook last year due to instant price changes after trying to check out, and other pricing/stock/checkout shenanigans.

Amazon.com added to OP. As I understand it, this is "a list of Televisions and Home Theatre products that will be significantly discounted sometime in the very near future and through the holidays."

Best Buy could go belly up this year. Might factor into the equation.

So is it worth getting a 720p tv?

I've been using a 32" 720p as a living room tv and I don't know how much more I can take watching tv/playing games on it anymore.

My area - people aren't very internet savvy about shopping, plus instant gratification of purchasing and walking out the door. Plus, nearest Best Buy is 1 1/2 hours from the local Kmart & Walmart.

That's a good question. If anyone knows, I'd love to know when. How long will it last? I.e., will that deal be good for half an hour? Or 3 minutes?

And, what does the 'F' stand for in FHDTV? (Or rather, I know it means full - but I thought any 40" or larger 1080p was full - no one else seems to use it, or have I just not been looking closely enough?
