Monster makes good products. The markup is insane. I buy monster under the right circumstances. Back in spring 2011 I bought a MP HTS1000MKIII, 229.99 at FS, PM'd TSCC and bought it for 64.96 at FS. The CS employees looked stunned, hehe. It's a purdy lookin power bar. Tells me the voltage and such. Years ago I also had a humming issue with running a coax audio cable from my PC to my reciever. Monoprice cable didnt fix it, Monster cable did. If brand is Monster and price is 70% off or more, I think ok to buy.

I got the future shop flyer early this morning, sorry to say but not much to be excited about :(
No kidding. Quite embarrassing when many of those items are already that price or cheaper. Do they rally think the average Joe is that stupid? If I find someone lining up tomorrow night for any of this crap, I might pull over and kick them in the balls. Regular RFDers can get better deals on better products any day of the week.

And for the love of god, when it comes to the cheap Blu-Rays, those are the same titles that have been sitting at those prices for the last 3 years!

The Lenovo is a dud when playing YouTube. The video play back stutters like porky pig.
Really? Specs seem to be good enough to run You Tube. I'm sad now :-( thought it was a good deal.

Are the Hugo/TinTin 3D blu-rays for 16.99 any cheaper at other retailers? Seems like one good price I can take advantage of.

Any thoughts on the Lenovo laptop?

•Lenovo 15.6" Laptop with 3rd Gen Intel i7, 8GB RAM, 750GB HD, GeForce GT630M - $649.99

I don't know too much about laptops but this seems like a decent price?

I saw this^ in the Futureshop BD flyer. Does anyone know if this deal will also be available for the on-line sale starting on the 24th?

$20 for fallout new Vegas ultimate is good for me... Been waiting for it to drop from $40 since summer. Throw in some USB drives and maybe that 200$ tv stand and I'm happy. I'd go for the 100$ Wal-Mart stand, but that looks weak compared to this
