If you’re in the market for an HDTV you may want to keep an eye on a LockerGnome blog called The Blade by Ron Schenone. He offers easy to understand recommendations on which type of HDTV he prefers and why in Tips for Buying the Right HDTV.

Ron is one sharp consumer and looking out for the best interest of other buyers. He spotted a new twist on an old marketing idea – add-ons you don’t need – that applies specifically to HDTV sales. Beware of HDTV Calibration Services.

He has also been scouting out the best HDTV prices as the Black Friday ads come out:

On 11/12 he posted that many were predicting dismal holiday sales of HDTVs.  That may depend on just how low the prices go.  Would you believe NewEgg is already (as of November 16) out of stock on their Black Friday special on a Cheap 42″ LCD HDTV for only $499? Ron posted that special on 11/13 so his readers had three days to find one before they sold out.

If you’re looking for great deals on HDTVs and don’t have the time to scour the Black Friday ads his blog may be “the” place to watch. It looks like the really low prices won’t wait for those that delay – even in this economy.

The above links are for what Ron has posted so far; be sure to watch his Blade Blog for additional ideas and prices on HDTVs.
