Thanks for making that! really helped Im going to TRY and get the Samsung 22inch from BB, I plan to get in like at 5-6PM T-day. Im also wondering, anyone know if they would allow you to purchase 2 items? Im also considering getting 2 of the 19inch Envision's for roughly the same price.

The hot door-busters (the 5 hour deals) will have tickets and it's one-per-customer. Two-day sale items you can buy as many as you can grab.

Depending on where you live, 5-6 pm might be too late.

Is there a huge difference in those contrast ratios? I am only looking at the 22" that BB and target have. If there is a huge difference b/t a 1000:1 and a 700:1... I only ask because I know I can get to Target and get one whereas the BB closest to me always has a long line starting at noon-ish of Thanksgiving.

At out BB last year the 22" Westy wasn't a ticket item so first in grabbed what they wanted. I do believe someone else posted last year that it was a ticket item in their BB. If it is a ticket item it is one per person. Got anyone you can bribe to stay with you? I dragged DD so I could get laptops for our daughters.

I need one of these monitors for myself since i have a chatroom burnt fadely into my 19'' dell lcd. I was at target and looked at the westing, wasn't plugged in but noticed you couldn't adjust it. The samsung at bb must be a very old model because hardly anything comes up on google on that model, only the 225bw and 226bw, this is the 220wm.

I just got a 20 inch wide screen (I know you guys wanted BIGGER) but it's a Samsung and got it in Costco just today (well yesterday) for only $179. I could not wait for the BF deals. My monitor went black and would not work last week!

The 20/21 widescreens from samsung are good, got my 20/21" widescreen last BF for that price, and it still serves me awesome.

Samsung monitors are usually pretty good, although they do make some low end ones - I would opt for the Acer, save a few $ and avoid the BB madness.

I had a 17" Acer that was just over a year old and it died! :mad: Flickered on and off for a few days then went black on me. I paid just as much for my Acer as I did Samsung :eek:
I think Samsung is a better product. With my family always on the computer, the screen is always on and I know they have a "shelf life". I think my life was cut too short but out of warranty :no: :mad:

With Samsung, I have a two year and thru Costco, I bring it back to them!

Hello. I am looking to buy a 24" monitor on BF and need to know which brand is better; Acer or Samsung. I heard that Staples will be offering an Acer 24" for $379, but am not sure. CC has a Samsung 24" for $329 after rebate. Here is the one Staples is supposedly offering: http://www.staples.c...10051&langId=-1

Now, which brand is better to get, Acer or Samsung? Thanks

So far you have a few opinions above. I cant speak to these particular models, but as stated above I have a good history w/ samsung's large widescreen monitors. That being said, since you are not in my town I will give you the heads up that there will be a much smaller line at staples (i.e. greater chance to get what you want), so if there is nothing that you really have to have at CC, that would be the dealbreaker for me.

My daughter nicked up my 17" LCD a bit. Still useable of course, but it looks like hairs on on the screen. Anyhow, I was trying to decide between the Target Westinghouse 22" for $167 or the Best Buy Samsung 22" for $199. I imagine longer lines at BB and don't look forward to the wait. Saw that 22" Envision $149 too, but it has no DVI, which is a bummer. No Circuit City here and I'm not too fond of rebates. What do you all think? Krank

I just went to Target and bought the Westinghouse 22". Paid full price $278, but will return Friday or Saturday and get my price adjusted, $167 :D. This was at about 3:00 PM Wednesday and they were puting out all the big items in the isles. I did the same thing, last year, for the 18" Westinghouse. Good luck to all of you on this great holiday "Black Friday" ;)

Okay, got a question, they will do the price change thing on items that are not doorbusters? I am looking for a flat panel for a gift and am wondering which I will most likely find... Target or Walmart.... BB looks too chaotic for me and isnt' near other stores I want to hit. andrea

They will adjust the price. I have multiple emails from them saying they will. Target, one of the best retailers for BF!!!

Well, the Best buy monitors are on their website right now. the 19inch is sold out but the 22inch Envision and Samsung are still available. I was going to wait in line to get them but I cant afford to buy anything for anyone now, my car just got jacked up yesterday and I have tough times ahead of me :(

Same thing here. Even though it was showing up on their website on Wednesday, they said they would not be able to give me the sale price yet. They said to bring in the receipt for up to 14 days after the sale and they will credit me the difference.

They had an end cap of probably 50 of them at the Buffalo, NY location

I read that Samsung monitors have a lot of back light bleeding. Also be careful of the place you buy if from because if the monitor has dead pixes some places won't take it back unless it's a certain number.

My son has the 19" acer monitor for his computer and he loves it!(3rd yr college). He's never had any problem with it and his screen is crystal, sharp images... He also likes to play online games when he's on school breaks and says the response time and images are awesome. I bought the 22" acer for 169.00 after rebate for my husband for his birthday for next week. Will see how this one is. (bought at city) Hope this helps.....
