Default Is this a good deal for an LCD TV?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824112174

I'm in the market of getting my first LCD TV, and I would like to know if this is a good deal.

Can y'all hook a brotha up?

Looks like a hell of a deal. If only it was 42" for that price...

I would love to help you homey but this ain't my area of expertise. There's a lot of a/v uber nerds round here though so I'm sure someone can chime in

That is a reasonable price for that feature set, although the negative reviews about the speakers and remote being crappy could possibly be a issue.

Most people would use their own HT speakers and a Harmony style remote anyway.

Though I'm not sure about Scepter being a quality brand (i.e. their return policy or build quality), you get quite a bit for the $ (37", 1080P, built in tuner) but it depends on what you use it for. It's got typical LCD contrast... only 1 HDMI port, no DVI... so you'd have to use VGA for a monitor or sacrifice the HDMI port with DVI->HDMI adapter. Speakers always suck on TVs.

For a monitor, X360, PS3, it will be excellent. It's a shame you missed the $799 Westy 37" 1080P deal back at Costco a few months back, as that is the ultimate monitor!

You can in fact find the Westinghouse 42" go on sale every now and then for ~$1,000 at Best Buy. (the TV model... with QAM tuner, 4 HDMI ports) which is the better buy.

Yeah I would say go for westy. Any TV that is worthy of being used as a PC monitor is a very good TV.

Before you buy any TV though, regardless of what brand it is (namebrand or not) you should browse around to different forums around the net and whatnot looking for that specific model, make sure you are aware of any quirks before you buy it.
