Get a 32-inch HDTV for $199.99

Amazingly, this is a new TV, not a refurb. And shipping is free, though you will have to pony up for sales tax.

The Dynex DX-32E250A12 earned high marks from users--even when it was selling for more than $199.99.

It's not too late to walk into a store and walk out with a sweet present.

To wit: Best Buy has the Dynex DX-32E250A12 32-inch LCD HDTV for $199.99 plus tax. If you're not in a hurry, or don't have a Best Buy near you, shipping is free!

This isn't an all-time low, but it's close. Last month, Amazon was selling a 32-inch Haier model for the same price--but that one is now up to $250. (And speaking of last month, did anybody score that 42-inch Sharp HDTV for $199 on Black Friday?)

Anyway, the Dynex is definitely a no-frills TV, offering 720p resolution (which I think is fine for a panel of this size), a 60Hz refresh rate, and two HDMI inputs. And the screen is actually 31.5 inches diagonally, so this is technically a "32-inch class" model. On the plus side, it's LED-backlit.

In other words, it's one you stick in the den, bedroom, or game room. The user reviews on Best Buy's product page are overwhelmingly positive; even the speakers received praise, which is unusual given that most TV speakers are terrible.

Usual disclaimer: I don't know how long this price will be in effect or how much inventory Best Buy is holding. I do know that a new 32-inch HDTV for $200 is a killer deal!

Bonus deal: In case you missed it the last time around, Digiarty Software is again giving away WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe (Win). Regular price: $49.95. Mac users can get it by clicking "Get gift for Mac users" and liking Digiarty on Facebook.

Bonus deal No. 2: The $199 BlackBerry PlayBook 7-inch tablet is back . That's the price on the 16GB model at both Best Buy and Staples. The question is, does it make any sense to choose this tablet over, say, the $199 Kindle Fire? I'm inclined to say no, but I'd like to hear your thoughts.
