Black Friday LCD TV's??

We're looking to get an affordable 27-32 ish inch LCD tv for the family Christmas gift. Does anyone know of any Black Friday sales I should watch out for? Anything to watch for or avoid? I'm not super techy any more in my AV gear. I just want to stay away from crappy off brands.

I saw a commercial that Best Buy has a 32" LCD with a Wii for $400. Don't remember what brand though.

I for one WOULD NEVER fight the masses, to get in on those types of deals! But good luck! I just got a REAL nice 32" for 329 flat.

I've heard the price of flat screens is going to plummet after christmas due to companies producing too many of them. Something to keep in mind.

The only problem with being a grammar nazi is that you have to deal with people like me that scrutinize every post of yours, watching and waiting for you to slip up....

...then BAM!, the bolded, enlarged "FIXED!" post comes out

I like the grammar checks because it keeps my grammatical skills fresh just in case I have to write a letter or apply for a job. You know important stuff. Sometimes seeing it the wrong way over an over causes it to be stuck in my noggin to be accidentally repeated elsewhere such as an important letter or a job application

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

Amazon all the way.

That's my recommendation.

Purchasing a TV for my office right now, and from what I see, the best BF deals are the same deals on Amazon. Plus you get free shipping and no tax. The savings on the tax alone is what's the kicker for me. Add to the fact that you don't have to fight the crowds, and it's a win win.
