Steals And Deals: Buy A Playstation 3, Get $100

walmartps3giftcard.jpgIf you're looking to save a little cash, or more accurately, gain a little cash by buying a Playstation 3, just head over to Walmart.com where you'll receive a $100 gift card with your purchase. You'll still pay the full $399 price tag for the console but an extra 100 bones could net you a couple of new games. Interestingly between June 8-15, Walmart will add on select Blu-ray players to the deal which will still include the PS3, so if you're looking for sole Blu-ray playback, just wait until next week.

Best Buy Deal: Buy A Insignia NS-BRDVD Blu-ray Player, Get $100 Of Blu-ray Movies Free

8777344_ra(2).jpgRight now at Best Buy a purchase of the Insignia NS-BRDVD Blu-ray player, priced at $350, will net you $100 of coupons that can be redeemed at your local Best Buy store for instant savings on Blu-ray movie titles from Disney, Touchstone, and Miramax. This pretty well brings the Insignia Blu-ray player price down to only $250, relatively reasonably priced for a middle-of-the-pack Blu-ray player.

HDTV Deals: 5 Top 32-Inch LCD TV's

Browsing the internet this morning, I was surprised to find that CNET has been receiving a heck of a lot of 32-inch HDTV's to review in '08. Not a total surprise given that manufacturers are pumping out 32-inch panels like crazy and the size accounted for 40% of LCD panel shipments in April, but CNET normally doesn't go small. So what exactly did CNET find out? Check out the five reviewed models and brief review summary below.

Samsung LN32A450

samsungln32a450(2).jpg
Rated 7.6/10 by CNET reviewers, a great score given their usual harshness, this LCD TV is the tops of the 5 reviews thanks to its incredible picture. The Samsung LN32A450 LCD TV is available at Amazon for $726.50 with free shipping.

Sony Bravia KDL-32M4000
kdl-32m4000(2).jpg
Ranked a solid 7/10, the KDL-32M4000 not only delivers a solid picture but has a nice look to it. It's real downside is its price which is a little more expensive than the other models. It's currently available at Amazon for $799.

Toshiba Regza 32CV510U

regza32(2).jpg
Deemed a solid choice for mainstream shoppers not looking for anything advanced, the Regza 32CV510U was given a solid 6.6/10 and is available at Butterfly Photo for $699.99.

Insignia NS-LCD32-09
8636675_rb.jpg
Ranked a good 6/10, this Insignia LCD TV is definitely a value model, sporting the cheapest price of the 5, but its performance would indicate you should be paying more. It's available from Best Buy for $599.99.

Sharp Aquos LC32D44U
aquos32(2).jpg
Last but not least, the LC32D44U was only dubbed an "average" model by CNET because although the entry-level LCD TV is stylishly attractive, its picture quality could use some improvement. The Aquos LCD is available from Amazon for $759.95.

In the end, if you have some extra cash and you're in the 32-inch market, take the Samsung. Looking for quality and value, take the Insignia. Case closed.

HDTV Deals For The Week Of April 20/08

Prices are looking pretty stable, but this year's newer models are gaining popularity among internet buyers and some smaller 720p models are seeing some small price drops.

I would definitely recommend a Viera for anyone looking at purchasing a plasma.

One choice we all have to face in the next year is whether or not to buy a digital television in preparation for DTV2009. If you're planning on going that route, prices have been dropping a little lately on last year's models as the 2008 lineups are being released. Take a look at some of the deals we found you for this week.
