A $999.95 “42" Flat Panel LCD HD TV” for only $589.95!

Any particular brand? I’m sure you are aware that some brands are much more reliable than others. There are dozens of various specifications that make some models much better than others. Of course, there is absolutely no information that would be of any real help in searching for an equivalent model to compare the price or other details. You actually have no way to verify that this TV is even worth $589, much less that “National Reference” price!

All the “information” on the ad is so generic that it could be used with every single 42" LCD ever made. In other words, the “information” does not inform you of anything; it’s nothing more than space-filling text.

I would discourage you from even spending the money on the two stamps required to see the warranty for this TV. Before buying any LCD TV, learn about some of the very important details that you should know; native resolution, refresh rate, type of backlighting, connection options, contrast and black levels, mounting options, color accuracy, etc. The point is, there are dozens of models from many brands for even less than $589.95. Do your homework, use your brain, get the best for your money, not simply what some marketing company offers you! Here are a couple of links with some good tips on how to help spend your money wisely:
