It's Black Friday , that time-honored American consumer tradition of gathering with fellow shoppers to give thanks for Costco, Target, Kohl's, and JC Penney.

While we haven't spotted many amazing deals on consumer electronics for this year's buying bonanza, we did manage to dig up a few steals . And it got us wondering. Just how far would you go to get your hands on a cheap Blu-ray player or a Nikon D40 with a two-lens kit for $549?

Vote in our poll, and if we missed something, be sure to let us know in our Talkback section. And remember, don't unwrap your new PS3 while driving!
