Is the 55" hitachi deal for $778 any good? 2001 has it for $1000

Looking to get a deal on a non 3d, non smart tv led in the range of 55"-60".

Bestbuy has a 55" insigna led for $600 but the hitachi seems like a better deal since it isn't no name. Still waiting for the BB and FS flyers, hoping to see a better deal.

How does edge lit compare to full led?
I was looking at that TV as well. Can't find any reviews at all on it.

It's called economies of scale. Learn about it. All old technology goes down in price. We're saying relative to regular sales, Boxing Day is looking pretty meh. That's it. It has nothing to do with being spoiled, just expecting more from our marketplace. Canadian consumers already get the short end of the stick, you want us to just lay down and take it?
An economy of scale is when the cost of something decreases substantially in higher volumes. Like when I buy a piece of cut glass to repair 1 window, it costs $100 per window. But if I buy a large sheet of glass and cut it into 8 pieces to repair 8 windows, $200/sheet means only $25 per window.

Everybody here is buying only 1 TV or maybe 2, so economies of scale are mostly irrelevant.

I think you may be vaguely referencing the concept that electronics generally become cheaper over time. That's not always true though. A couple years ago a glut of supply combined with consumer recession forced TV prices to quickly collapse. Or consider the example of how last year Samsung instituted large price increase, giving up some market share, but ultimately resulting in firmer propped up prices this year as other makers came in line.

I do agree however Canadian consumer prices are much higher for no other reason than they know they can get away with it.

Best bang for the buck right now is the PN60E6500 $1488.00

http://www.visions.ca/catalogue/categor ... =PN60E6500

This is a very good set 3D, Smart, Wi-fi, 2 pair of glasses in the box, rated the 3rd best TV for the money overall by cnet this year.

That with taxes will keep you under budget and maybe even leave some for a HD box or a sound system.

What's their shipping like? I'm eyeing that 80" but I'm guessing shipping would kill the deal.

I hope that someone can give me a good reason to not get the Sharp LC80LE632U.
watch some sports on it and see if you still like it, I'm not sure if I saw the 632 or not but the sharp 80" I saw was absolute garbage when it came to sports. Animated stuff looked ok but I got them to put on an NFL game and the movement of the ref across the screen nearly gave me vertigo. I burst out laughing and the sales guy just smiled and shrugged and bluntly said "I'll be surprised if we can sell even this one"

That's not a bad price for the Polk Monitor 75 Loudspeakers. Just shy of 50% off the current price ($788)
Good price for those and the Monitor 45`s. Could get a decent entry level HT system from Visions if you needed one. Too bad the $798 system is so tiny that you can`t see what towers it comes with because that could potentially be a decent deal.

I am considering the Pioneer 7.1 amp (VSX1022K) for $368 - upgrading from my old 5.1. Anyone have any comments about this? I am hesitant due to the lack of networking or Wifi out of the box. Looks like it is already at $399 right now, so not THAT much of a savings.

Looks like 70+ = instore only. As far as instore shipping, i guess you could go there and ask (if you live close to a Visions). I think it was like $50 or $100 a couple years ago when my parents bought a TV from them but Visions unlike FS/BB = you can work out a deal with them and pretty much get free shipping + lower price than what they list it for (most of the time).
