Here's a guide to your least-expensive options if you're looking for a new telly.
A4C via eBay offers the 5-Foot 3.5mm Male-to-Male Auxiliary Cable 2-Pack in seven colors for $2.33. Add two to your cart and the price for all four cables falls to $2.78. With free shipping, that's 70 cents per cable, tied with our October mention, and $8 below the lowest total price we could find for four of these cables elsewhere. (We've seen 3.5mm cables for less, but not with angled connectors or flat cables.) They're compatible with any audio device with a 3.5mm stereo jack.
Fry's offers the refurbished RCA 50" 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television, model no. LED50B45RQ, $347 with free shipping. That's $52 under the lowest total price we could find for a new one, although we saw a new one for $51 less after a $104 Sears credit last fall. This HDTV features include a 1920x1080 (1080p) native resolution, LED backlight, USB, and two HDMI inputs. Deal ends January 31.
A 90-day warranty applies, although it's not clear who backs it.

The Roku stick plugs into your TV's MHL port and streams 1080p video via WiFi.
Sears offers the Hitachi 49" 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television, model no. LE49S508, for $379.88. Opt for free in-store pickup to avoid the $69.99 shipping charge. That's $120 off list price, tied with last week's mention, and the lowest price we could find.
