Guide to last-minute Super Bowl HDTV shopping
So how do you find a great deal on HDTV with only a day or two to shop around? We asked this question of deal expert Dan de Grandpre of dealnews.com . Dan gives this advice to WalletPop readers looking for in a Super Bowl HDTV.
"The Super Bowl will not be broadcast in 1080p. (In fact, no show has nor will be in the near future.) While we generally recommend purchasing 1080p sets, if you're on a shoe-string budget, you can probably save some cash with a cheaper 720p or 1080i TV."
Dan picked out Vizio and Westinghouse as two "no name" brands which have delivered consistent quality at an affordable price. Despite my recent insistence on purchasing a name-brand TV; I would also recommend either of these brands if your funds are limited.
Whether you're watching at home or heading to a party, watching the Super Bowl without an HDTV is almost as bad as forgetting the wings!
