Best TV Deals: Year's Cheapest 32" 1080p, a 60" LG for Less Than You'd Expect


720p HDTVs have staged a small comeback in this week's best TV deals, taking the top two spots in our roundup. We've also found the cheapest 32" 1080p LCD of the year and a smart 60" plasma from LG at an all-time price low. Not satisfied with 1080p? Seiki's 50" 4K TV also hits its second-best price of the summer.
