good deals on a plasma?

OK so I am REAL tempted on a big screen and think MAYBE prices have come down enough. Any recommendations on a 42"ish plasma (I don't like LCDs picture). I want cheap but reliable. About in this range ($1399) or less. I would mainly use it for cable and DVDs though there is a small chance of a game console. Oh and the locals broadcast in HD but I am tucked into the mountain a bit so reception may not be possible and watching Survivor XXXIII

Re: good deals on a plasma?

Bestbuy? black friday is coming up. I want plasma but the only place I can put one is above the mantle. Granted I rarely fire up the fireplace... the option would be nice to have.

I am looking for LCD myself.

The thought of packing in with a hoard of people They did have a 42" advertised for $999 though... tempting but all those people in a small area not sure I could take it

Re: good deals on a plasma?

J&R has the that panny for 1299 right now...plus a little shipping. It's a very good panel. If you don't get to Bestbuy by 1-2am and stand in line till it opens at 5am, you probably won't get that tv as theirs a very low # at that price.

J&R has a good rep.

Edit: See that's a bit higher then the zon price now that they have free shipping on it.

Re: good deals on a plasma?

Is there an issue buying via mail on something that big? I seem to remember an issue on warranties...

The white fluffy cute ones. The cranky fat blue ones do real bad in groups larger than about 10. Cities like DC/LA are an extreme form of blue sheep abuse

Re: good deals on a plasma?

A little bigger but worth it I suppose. Heard from no-where reliable that each store has 5 TVs

The issue with warranty is that you can't just take it back to the store to get it replaced, you would likely need to ship it back (in original packaging I'm sure) to get it fixed or replaced.

Take the good on line price and go negotiate with a local retailer, they might give it to you.

Re: good deals on a plasma?

We just ordered that same tv at work yesterday.
Technical Specifications - TH-42PX60U 42" Plasma TV (Panasonic-TH42PX60U) - PriceGrabber.com
It'll probably be two weeks or more til it gets here since it has to go through purchasing.

Re: good deals on a plasma?

I cant remember where, but someone (amazon maybe?) is having that 42" Pana. plasma for 999$ on Black Friday.

Otherwise go check out Costco, I believe there is a coupon for it this week that makes it pretty close to that price.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

Re: good deals on a plasma?

Or wait until January when the prices drop 20% on all electronics. Or does that just happen when I buy something?
