"Lost" returns February 2. The Super Bowl XLIV airs five days later. March Madness kicks off in, well, March. How many more reasons do you need to finally treat yourself to a big ol' HDTV?
Walmart.com has the Sceptre X46BV 46-inch LCD HDTV for $598. Amazingly, that includes free shipping--a rarity with big TVs--though you'll likely have to add sales tax.
Even so, that's one of the lowest prices I've ever seen on a TV of this size. OK, but is it any good? CNET hasn't reviewed the X46BV, but the 80-plus user … Read more
Update (7 a.m. PT): Wow, I just can't win. This item disappeared from TigerDirect's site shortly after I posted it--a very common occurrence these days. My apologies. I'm going to think long and hard before posting another item from CompUSA/TigerDirect.
I can't quite decide which is better: two smaller monitors running side by side or a single gargantuan monitor.
If you're in the latter camp, TigerDirect has a refurbished Vizio VMM26L 26-inch LCD monitor for $184.99 shipped. (That's if you use Google Checkout--otherwise the price is $189.99.)
That's the … Read more
Update: Unsurprisingly, this is sold out. Sorry if you missed it! Killer deals like this rarely last long.
You all know my motto by now: "Cheap things come to those who wait." The last time I posted a 25-inch LCD monitor was in July. The price back then: $199.99.
Today, CompUSA is offering a 25-inch I-Inc LCD monitor for $149.99 shipped.
D'oh! Wasn't it just yesterday that a 24-inch Synaps was selling for $159.99? (Yes, yes it was.)
So, to amend my motto, cheap things come to those who wait--a whole entire day. … Read more
Update: I'm afraid this is sold out already, as I predicted. Sorry if you missed it!
Update #2: And now it's back in stock. Moral of the story: If something sells out, check again in an hour, a couple hours, or even the next day. You never know when the vendor will replenish its stock.
It's not even Black Friday yet, and already I'm seeing one of the best deals of 2009. CompUSA has a Mag 26-inch LCD HDTV for $199.99 shipped.
To put that in perspective, the last time I saw anything close was … Read more
Update: Looks like this is sold out. (When I say act fast, I mean it!) But try checking back later and even in a day or two. Sometimes vendors get replenished stock.
Update #2: One commenter was told by the vendor that additional stock is expected tomorrow, so do check back!
I was going to post this yesterday, but I really thought the $149 Kindle was the more exciting deal. Judging from its lackluster response, I was wrong. Now I'm just hoping this monitor doesn't sell out or expire.
TigerDirect has a loaded 24-inch EQD Auria EA2367 LCD monitor for $159.99, … Read more
So, you're looking at picking up one of those newfangled TomTom GPS what's-its, but the XL 340S' 4.3-inch color wide screen is just too small for you to read. Well, you're in luck because TomTom has just announced an even larger line of portable nav devices, the XXL series.
The new TomTom XXL 530S and 540S both feature a larger 5-inch touch screen, IQ Routes and TomTom MapShare technologies, US and Canadian maps, and TomTom's EasyPort integrated suction cup mount.
Drop an extra 30 bones on the 540S to add advanced lane guidance, as well … Read more
