Added a bunch of items to the main BF site database so you can add those to your shopping lists. There are still a few more to add but I'll do those tomorrow.

And with that I say good night - past 1am here... dead tired...

Hope everyone appreciates it :)

Always appreciated!:yelclap: :bounce_fl

Unless circuit city come through with something better, I'm getting the gateway laptop, no rebates :)


I think Circuit City's doorbuster will be better than the gateway.

24 DVDS? I really want that 27" viewsonic LCD from CompUSA. I might have to hit them up first, then go to bestbuy.

Luckily our CompUSA is 2 blocks away from BB which is 5 blocks away from CC. CostCo is about 2 miles from CC.

Black Friday is going to be INSANE this year!

The only thing I really wanted from them was a 13" TV/DVD combo and they only have a 20" combo. I love it but it's too big to fit where I want to put it. :(

I forgot about the DLP projector. I think it will come down to how many BB bucks I have. $300 per visit though may hinder my opperation.

I must admit I am disappointed that it was not with instant rebates. 799 is pretty much list price around the net I am finding, so still 449 is still a darn good price even with rebates.

Pretty much the only rebates I will be willing to do, and im glad nothing else I wanted has it them.

Well, my reasoning is this, up until I leave to go to BB, (which is conviently now just 2 miles down the highway from my place) I would have been sleeping anyway.

So why not get the sleeping done there? ;)



Also, I finally found that 30inch HDTV for 399.99 in the ad, on one of the last pages. Seems there is perhaps as few as 2 per store.

Im not a big TV person. (Computer guy) But this seems like an extremely good deal, for a 30inch LCD, let alone it being HDTV?


EDIT: Btw, Rossman, PM coming your way.

Regarding 32" and larger HDTV's under $1499, I have a difficult decision to make.

The LCD, Plasma @ BB or CostCo's Philips 32" LCD for $1299 which has awesome specs. CostCo offers me 2% cash back and they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee which they actually stand by. 5 years from now if it breaks I can return it for a refund or replacement. No other retail store will do that, well worth the annual membership. Still $1299 is a little steep I wish it were closer to $1099 or $1199.

Id go with the 46" DLP from BB if you're going upwards of $1500.

Ahh you're right. How quaint of BB to take the picture of that TV from directly head on. :rolleyes:

As always you offer rock solid advice but I hate how Toshiba has speakers mounted on the side. If I'm spending $1500 on a TV I want the speakers on the bottom.

One option is to buy the Philips @ CostCo, do not open it and wait until their January 2006 coupon book is released.

Yea, its hard to argue with the Costco's return policy. I think its factored into the price somewhat though. As you already pointed out, a 32" LCD for $1300 is kind of steap. The 46" DLP was the only option I liked from BB. The 42" Plasma Mag was $1700 with $200 in mail in rebates.

We do have $213 BB (possibly with more coming) so that might help ease the "blow" of Toshiba 42" DLP for $1499. I just wish the speakers weren't mounted on the side or could easily be removed.

Does it have to fit into an entertainment center or you just don't like the look?

The latter of the two, I just don't like the look. I find it distracting.
