Full Wal-Mart Black Friday ad hits Internet, complete with Samsung, Sony HDTV deals

If you read yesterday's post, you already know about a few of Wal-Mart's Black Friday home theater deals, including a $78 Blu-ray player. At long last, Wal-Mart's full Black Friday ad has hit the Web, and it includes some of those brand names that the earlier deals lacked.

If you read yesterday's post, you already know about a few of Wal-Mart's Black Friday home theater deals, including a $78 Blu-ray player. At long last, Wal-Mart's full Black Friday ad has hit the Web, and it includes some of those brand names that the earlier deals lacked.

The HDTV "doorbuster" of note is a 46-inch 1080p Sony LCD (the KDL465504) for just $798. (In comparison, it's $852.99 at Best Buy.) Other Sony LCD deals include a $378 32-inch 720p model and a 40-inch 1080p set priced at $598. Samsung is well-represented as well, though those deals are all available on Saturday instead of Friday. These include two 720p plasmas—the PN42B400 for $548 and the PN50B400 for $698—and three LCDs. While the $398 32-inch LN328360 is a 720p set, both the $598 42-inch LN40B500 and the $848 46-inch LN46B500 are 1080p models (each are $1.99 less than at Sears).

In terms of Blu-ray, Samsung and Sony each have a sale unit, though the $148 price is nearly double the Magnavox one that's the doorbuster. The big difference is that Samsung's BD-P1950 can stream Netflix and Pandora's online services, while the Sony BDP-S369 cannot. No home theater system deals appear to be in the cards, though. Nor are there other popular brands like Panasonic, Sharp, and Vizio on sale.

And don't expect to comparison shop online for these products; as is often the case with Black Friday electronics, most of these seem to be created just for the occasion. Still, they're Samsungs and Sonys instead of Emersons and Sanyos. Is that enough to get you excited (and ready to line up)? Let us know in the TalkBack section.
