Can't wait until Black Friday for a TV deal? Then you're in luck, as we have some choice deals in our roundup of the week's best TV deals. Shop for budget sets starting at $200, or get $600 off the list price of a high-end Sharp.
Samsung 55" 120Hz 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television
Store: Fry's Electronics
Price: $599 at checkout with in-store pickup
Lowest By: $199
Expires: October 23
Is It Worth It?: Samsung-loyal TV shoppers should appreciate this deal, which knocks the 55" set to an all-time low price. As a current low by $199, the savings are substantial enough to warrant the required trek to a Fry's Electronics to get it, too. It features a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p), 120Hz refresh rate (240Hz Clear Motion Rate, a Samsung proprietary metric), LED backlight, and two HDMI inputs.
Panasonic Life+ 50" 120Hz 1080p 3D LED LCD HD Television bundled with a pair of Panasonic 3D Glasses
Price: $634.99 via coupon code "AS15650" with free shipping
Lowest By: $165
Expires: October 31
Is It Worth It?: It's pretty astounding how inexpensive 3D technology has gotten. After all, this set is only $45 more than the cheapest non-3D Panasonic 50" (with otherwise the same specs) that we've seen in the past year. In this case, impressing your friends for an evening or two is probably worth the extra $45. Additional features include a 1920x1080 (1080p) native resolution, LED backlight, WiFi, Life+Screen Smart TV platform, USB, and two HDMI inputs. The glasses are added to your cart automatically.

Is It Worth It?: TVs just keep getting bigger, but thankfully this Sharp doesn't compromise on what matters most; CNET says this model "sets the big-screen LCD TV value bar high with very good picture quality for the price." How convenient then that this deal knocks that budget price even further, slashing $600 off the original MSRP. It features a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p), edge-lit LED backlight, WiFi, media streaming (from Netflix, VUDU, Amazon Instant, CinemaNow, Pandora, and more), USB, and four HDMI inputs.
