I know I've posted a lot of TV deals of late, but, hey, they're a hot category right now. And who knows if the deals will be as good after this Sunday's big game?
For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the Sharp LC42SV49U 42-inch LCD HDTV for $329.99, plus sales tax where applicable. You can opt for free site-to-store shipping, which, alas, takes 7-10 days, or pony up around $20 for shipping.
Two factors set this deal apart from some of the others I've shared recently. First, Sharp is a … Read more
Here's nearly all of the information I've been able to get from CES and since regarding the shiny new TVs of 2012.
I know it's not every TV; minor brands aren't represented, and lack of information from some manufacturers (namely Samsung) prevents me from capturing a few midrange and entry-level models. But as of press time I'm confident that the chart above contains the most comprehensive, current information on forthcoming 2012 models available anywhere.
Is it Black Friday again already? Somebody at Target must think so, because they've got a TV deal that has day-after-Thanksgiving written all over it.
I say that having already posted a couple of pretty amazing TV deals in the last few weeks. This one beats them all.
While supplies last, Target has the Apex Digital LD4688T 46-inch LCD HDTV for $379 shipped (plus sales tax where applicable).
Yowza. That's the only word I can use to describe this deal.
While supplies last (and I'm hoping they last longer than it takes me to finish this sentence), Best Buy's outlet center has the refurbished Coby TFTV3227-Z 32-inch LCD HDTV for $169.99 shipped (plus sales tax where applicable). That's definitely a new low for a TV of this size.
Update: Rats. Looks like it's already sold out. But keep checking, as Best Buy might just free up some additional inventory.
OK, but a refurb? And a Coby refurb at that? Admittedly, this is … Read more
A big monitor can change the way you work. It not only gives you a physically larger display, but also boosts the resolution so you can fit more windows onscreen at once.
That means you could keep, say, your browser open on the left side of the screen and your word processor on the right. No more hopping back and forth between them. Once you experience that kind of convenience, you'll never want to go back to a smaller monitor.
For a limited time, Dell Small Business has the ViewSonic VA2431WM 24-inch LCD monitor for $149.99 shipped (plus … Read more
So you decided not to spring for the in-dash DVD player and flip-down screens. No problem: your passengers can still watch movies on the road, using your iDevice as the source.
Launching at CES, as reported by Ubergizmo, the Philips PV7002i and PV9002i come with a pair of LCD screens designed to be mounted behind car-seat headrests. Meanwhile, your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad sits up front in a specially designed cupholder dock, which also charges the device.
The PV7002i will come with two 7-inch screens, two sets of mounting straps, the aforementioned dock, and the single cable that connects them all. The screens have built-in stereo speakers.
The PV9002i is identical, but with 9-inch screens. The kits will be priced at $169.99 and $199.99, respectively, and are due to ship in April.… Read more
LAS VEGAS--Sharp has announced its ultraslim televisions for 2012 in sizes ranging from 42 inches up to 70 inches, with edge-lit panels and smart TV.
The five-model 640/540 Series, which features what the company calls an "ultraslim and narrow-bezel design," comes with an X-Gen panel. The TVs have edge-lit-LED screens and feature 120Hz motion compensation.

Seven LCD manufacturer including Samsung and Sharp this month agreed to pay $553 million to settle lawsuits that claimed the companies were colluding with one another to fix the prices of their panels for use in consumer electronics.
Legal documents filed last week, and picked up by Reuters, show that the collected fines total $553 million between the companies involved, and that said companies will be setting up antitrust compliance programs as part of the deal. Of that sum, about $501 million is going towards a refund program for consumers, and about $37 million is being doled out to governments … Read more
