Newegg has kicked off its Black Friday festivities a little early, and the site is straining with the traffic surge. If you can actually get onto the site, you'll find a bunch of deals on HDTVs from brands like LG, Sharp and Samsung. While Samsung sets are well-represented in the Black Friday specials from other retailers, LG and Sharp are in shorter supply. And perhaps the most enticing deal is the 60-inch 1080p LG 60PS11 plasma for $1,399.99—yes a 60-inch non-projection set for well under two grand.

On the lower end, a 42-inch 720 LG plasma (42PQ10) is just $479.99. LG LCDs on sale include the 720p 42-inch 42LH10 for $449.99. As for 1080p sets, the 40-inch Samsung LN40B500 is $597.99, while, even better, the 46-inch 1080p 120Hz Sharp LC-46SB57U is just $699.99. You can also grab an LG Blu-ray player (the BD270) for just $98.99. You can also get the Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray player for $199 or the BD-P3600 for $249, the latter of which is $40 lower than at Amazon.

Here's the full list of Newegg Black Friday HDTV deals. (Note that some of the prices are different than when you click on the product link.) But act fast if you're planning to buy, as it's unclear how many units the store has before it sells out.
