- Sceptre 50" 1080p TV for $260
Great price, but Sceptre is not known for quality.
That being said, it does have a couple dozen positive reviews on BestBuy.com, and a similar model also has some good reviews.
Quality and longevity could be a factor with Sceptre TVs.
Some people have complained Sceptre TVs die within 1 year, so this deal, while cheap, could be a risky investment.
- 50" 1080p TV for $280 (expired: price raised to $300)
Insignia 50-inch LED-backlit LCD 1080p HDTV for $280 today.
Normally, a 50-inch TV sells for at least $350.
1080p is being phased out on 50+ inch TVs, because manufacturers can sell 4K (2160p) screens at higher prices.
4K screens have more of a "wow" appeal when looking at the picture quality close-up, but most people do not watch TV close-up.
There is a chart in Section 2 of a Cnet article that insists viewers would need to be 5-feet from a 50-inch screen to notice the difference between 1080p and 4K.
Plus, most people do not have 4K video to play on their TV (most cable services provide 1080p video).
So, if you're looking for a deal on a big screen TV today, this is a great price on a 50" TV with good reviews.
Ship-to-store is available to avoid a shipping fee.
Wait about a week for your order to arrive at your local Walmart, drive to the store, walk to the very back of the store and find the pickup counter.
