    Lowest By: $51

    Is It Worth It?: While 46" and 47" LED-backlit sets have replaced the 42" LCD model as entry level HDTVs, this 42" Spectre is $51 under our April mention and is tied for the lowest total price we've seen for any new 42" 1080p HDTV. Despite its modest size, this set boats 1080p native resolution, a 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 400 cd/m² brightness, a 5ms response time, four HDMI inputs, and more.

  6. Sceptre 50" 1080p LCD HD Television
    Store: TigerDirect

    Lowest By: $190
    Expires: November 26

  7. Samsung 46" 1080p LED-Backlit Widescreen LCD HD Television
    Store: Dell Home
    Price: $577.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $1

    Is It Worth It?: The price-match wars have really hit their stride with this Samsung 46" 1080p HDTV. And while most stores charge $669 or more, TigerDirect, Adorama, and Amazon are also all offering this HDTV for the same price of $577.99, which is $185 under our June mention. (Note that this TV is out of stock at Adorama and Amazon, but can be ordered at this price.) Features include 1080p native resolution, edge-lit LED backlight, USB connectivity, two HDMI inputs, and more.

    For $18 more, the Samsung 46" 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television integrates Samsung Apps (like Netflix and Hulu Plus), all for an all-time low price of $597.99 with free shipping. (Adorama charges the same price; though it is currently out of stock, it can be ordered at this price.) It's also a current price low by $102 and includes three HDMI inputs.

  8. LG 55" 120Hz 1080p 3D LED-Backlit LCD HD Television
    Store: Walmart
    Price: $899 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $101

    Is It Worth It?: This LG model has dropped $100 in price since we last listed it two weeks ago, making it the cheapest 55" 3D LED LCD HDTV we've ever seen. It's also a current price low by $101. The 3D LG features a 120Hz refresh rate, edge-lit LED backlight, Ethernet and USB connectivity, and three HDMI inputs.

    Update: If you'd rather skip the 3D technology, the Insignia 55" 120Hz 1080p Widescreen LCD HD Television from Best Buy is $300 less at $599.99. With free shipping it's $130 under our July mention (which required pickup) and is the lowest total price we've seen for a 55" 1080p LCD HDTV. It features a 1080p native resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, USB connectivity, three HDMI inputs, and more.

  9. Samsung 51" 600Hz 1080p Widescreen Plasma HD Television
    Store: Abt
    Price: $577.99 with free shipping EXPIRED
    Lowest By: $2

    Is It Worth It?: Although this TV is only a low by $2, most other stores actually charge around $700. While this TV is more expensive than the prior two models in this roundup, and only adds an additional inch to your overall screen real estate, keep in mind that the Samsung brand is a premium amongst TV manufacturers. And this just so happens to be the best price we've seen for a Samsung 51" 1080p plasma HDTV. Similar to the PNE550 line, CNET deemed this model to have "solid black levels, accurate color, and perfect off-angle viewing and uniformity." It features a 600Hz subfield drive, USB port, and two HDMI inputs.

Was surprised this deal wasn't listed yesterday, tho its not really a 'Black Friday' deal as its permanent. The big deal is that this set is the possibly has the best image on the whole market for the money & just took a huge price drop. I bought it after several days deliberation...there wasn't many good 60" Plasmas on sale in general.

http://Amazon.com has the Panasonic VIERA TC-P60ST50 60-Inch 1080p 600Hz Full HD 3D Plasma TV for $1499.99 (lowest on web), w/ 2% cashback (no registration required) after 35 days, low price guarantee (up to 14 days after purchase), & free 'Enhanced Delivery' (delivery, set-up, disposing of packing materials). In the end, $1469.99 shipped for a TV that many of the pros have in their home.

Here's one of the glowing reviews, enjoy: http://reviews.cnet.com/...05-6482_7-35118301.html

January is the best time to buy name brand HDTVs for sure.

 I see that you have a lot of knowledge on electronic merchandise. I notice that the prices for televisions normally go down around mid January. Do you think that next year it will be the same?

We in fact listed that deal in our Best Black Friday HDTVs roundup throughout the day, but removed it recently as it is presently available in-store only.
