Black Friday Comes Early For Sharp HDTV Buyers Thanks To WalMart

Black Friday 2009 falls on Friday November 27th this year, unfortunately for many retail locations WalMart didn’t get that memo, instead they’re offering the 42″ Sharp LC42SB45UT HDTV starting this Saturday November 7th for a surreal $498.

The TV features 1080P 60Hz output, offers an 8,000:1 contrast ratio and comes equipped with built-in ATSC and NTSC tuners, 3 HDMI Ports, Component Video, S-Video, Compositve Video and Audio and a 20 watt built-in speaker system.

Considering the typical WalMart price of $740 you really can’t beat the price, you may even be able to avoid those crazy Black Friday lines if you get in on this deal. Notice I said beat the lines, unfortunately you won’t be able to order this deal online for delivery or for a site to store pickup.

Reviews have been generally good for the TV, although you’ll want to hook it up to a sound system as some users have complained about the built-in speakers. [WalMart]
