I have been using this TV for about 3 days now (granted as a computer monitor) and it's ok. The standard cable picture is ok too, for the price. There is a noticeable difference in quality of one of these vs. a Sony of course, but it makes a great bedroom or 2nd TV.


how does it look in HD?

I was wondering if anyone went for these last year? I am prego with twins and the thought of trying to get that thing in my vehicle that day just doesn't sit well. I was wondering if it would fit in a car (backseat) or if I need to scam the truck from my hubby. Was also wondering if you can buy things at home depot and go back later to pick them up. So if I bought the ladder in the am then had a friend come later with a truck to help me pick it up. I saw it online for the same price this morning, but of course it didn't qualify for the free shipping because of the weight. Wonder if they have a lot of them? Tanya

Our Home Depot will let you do that. When we bought our gas grill, it was assembled so we had to come back with a truck to get it home. They gave us a slip before leaving that we showed them when we came back to pick it up.

I'm kind of nervous about going there since there are no vouchers and it's a run and gun type thing, does HD usually have a big line at opening? I'm in a wheelchair or crutches right now (bad motorcycle) and i'm worried that i'll be pushed over or stepped on, i'd rather not have to have my pelvis rebuilt a second time

The Black Friday ad lists an 18" Ryobi planer for 199.00. I checked out the net and can't find a Ryobi Planer bigger than 13". Think that is a misprint? Would they have to honor the ad and substitute an 18" planer?

I know our Home Depot actually sold a few of those 32" LCD Tvs...YESTERDAY...there was some confusion on employees' part on what to put out on the floor and when...he may have been stammering because of that?

THEY WERE OUT OF THE TVS ALREADY


A local HD in my area had their TVs out lasts week and sold out of them. Too stupid to read the huge flourescent pink signs on the pallets that said BLACK FRIDAY ONLY. My store didn't put ours out until after the store closed Wednesday night in preparation for today.

We have a new Home Depot and when my Hubby went to get the Christmas Tree at about 9:15 they still had 2 of the TVs at our store. That is probably only because a lot of people don't know about the store being open yet. Although it has been open for a couple months.

In my experience as a vendor calling on retail stores including home depot. Home Depot is BY FAR the poorest run, most ass backwards, non caring, understaffed retail chain out there. If there is worse out there I have not had the experience of doing business with them. Home Depot is not the same company it was 5-10 years ago.

I was able to pick up a few last week... I heard that corporate was allowing each store's manager to decide on which items they wanted to put out early... sounds very strange, but I dunno.

That's what our ad said too, but then they rang up that price instead of 599, worked for me!

At my store the original shipment of TV's didnt come shipped with the pink sign so they put em out...but we got some more in closer to black friday specifically for that. Store manager had a choice on whether to put the first batch out.

I have a Lowe's coupon for $10 off $25 and there's a wet/dry vac I want from the Depot. Anyone know if they accept competitor coupons?

He was probably stammering because they were probably bought by employees before BF. That's what happened at my sister's store. By law I guess they are required to have one on the floor. Don't think its right but it happens. She said the Managers bought them. :(
