@TV-Tastic I see your point, but I do think that's still an important bit of information to note, since many TVs hit their lowest point during Black Friday, then take several months to match that price or drop below it. It's notable that this TV has finally hit that point again.

Although these prices are good, "better than Black Friday" doesn't really mean much when you're talking about TVs that are last year's model. Of course they're going to be better than Black Friday prices. It's old inventory.

@Foxykid While it's true that Best Buy lists it as 720p, the actual manual for this TV states that it's indeed a 1080p set. (PDF link).

Best Buy lists the Dynex 50" as 720p.
