    I like these deals-of-the-day posts. I just recently signed up for the major deal sites’ RSS feeds, so I’m reading them periodically throughout the day.

    One word of caution for anyone interested in these dirt-cheap notebooks that are showing up at Circuit City, Best Buy, Buy.com, etc. Read ALL the specs. They are all the same price and have the same headlines, pretty much the same specs, but you will find they usually have major differences, like internal bluetooth, different graphics adapters, different graphics outputs (if any!), etc. They’re very good steals, if and only if you know exactly what you’re looking for.

  2. here’s a link to make that 37″ LCD $580 instead of $600 (it’s an 8% off coupon with a max. value of $20)

      @discounteggroll: Don’t buy the Westinghouse LCD from buy.com. Last week there was a deal for the 42 inch at Best Buy and I got it. The screen was TERRIBLE. It took me an hour and a half of adjusting to get it so that I could see any depth in dark areas. Then I noticed that sometimes I would get blue lines and bars across the top. Sometimes twiddling the interlace setting, turning on and off, or rebooting (pull the plug for ten minutes) could fix it temporarily. (These two problems could sometimes be avoided by zooming the image but sometimes that blue bar on the top would be so darn big that you had to zoom it all the way in not just a little bit and so you lost a lot of the picture.) Then I got red lines occasionally on the bottom. Then I noticed on PS2 with component connections that every now and then a frame would stutter but with a pattern of every two seconds and every second the image would shrink and grow ever so slightly. Then the final problem was that light blotches would appear in dark scenes and stay until the set was turned on and off or a light scene would come. I could make this not happen by adjusting the black level, but it kept getting worse and I needed to keep moving it. By the third day I had lost all the detail in dark scenes because of this. But then that morning the screen started flashing white on the top fifth of the screen and I got these big white squares that would only go away when the set was turned on and off and I took it back to best Buy.

      Reading AVS forums about these sets, people have to go through two or three until they get a decent one. How are you going to deal with that if you buy it from buy.com? Manufacturer warranty?

    I was in a MovieStop last night, they had select tv box sets $10, some not so good, but good shows like Entourage, Living Color, Married w/Children, NYPD Blue…not a bad deal
