If you have been waiting for a fantastic deal on an HDTV, wait no more. There are incredible deals on and before Black Friday. Best of all, you don’t need get up at 3am to snag many of these deals. LiveCheap looked at many of the major retailers and analyzed their 46 inch HDTV offerings, the most popular size, that is offering the best price performance. We only chose high quality sets from manufacturers like Samsung, Panasonic, and Sony since we believe in quality first, price second. These are amazingly cheap deals on 4 or 5 star HDTVs. Expect to pay from $800 to $1,600 for a great set that will last you years. Notably absent from this list is Amazon.com which actually raised prices on some sets for Black Friday! Savvy buyers have no worries as there are plenty of other retailers sell them HDTVs cheaply. Ranked in reverse order they are:
5. Sony Bravia: Walmart: 46 inch Sony Bravia KDL46S504 $798
A solid entry level TV from Sony’s S Series. Walmart goes with the hard-to-find S504 model instead of the more popular S5100 model which is virtually identical. S5100 best price is around $999, so Black Friday savings are about $200. Decent entry level TV at a fantastic price. There are better quality sets, but at under $800, this one is a bargain that deserves a place on the list.

2. Panasonic: BuyDig VieraG10 46 inch Plasma - $1,079
Amazon.com actually RAISED prices for the G10 for Black Friday. Not the only item that Amazon did this on. BuyDig however, has a better price on the G10. If you watch movies, the G Series is far superior to LCDs although you will pay for it with higher electricity usage. If you prefer plasma, this one is a great set.
