Get a 32-inch HDTV for $258

Need something big, flat, and cheap for the den, dorm room, or bedroom? Target has the deal to beat: the nicely appointed Sylvania LC320SL1 32-inch HDTV.

The Sylvania LC320SL1 offers 32 inches of HDTV goodness for well below the $300 mark.

I'm ba-ack! Thanks for posting so many great deals while I was away last week. I may have to take vacations more often!

Today's deal is one of the best I've ever seen: Target has a Sylvania LC320SL1 32-inch LCD HDTV for $258.30. That's after applying coupon code TOEY738U, and not including sales tax in most states. (Here in Michigan, for example, my out-the-door total was $273.80.)

That's the lowest price I can recall on a 32-inch TV, particularly one that's not refurbished. Mostly you still see them selling in the $399 range.

Like most 32-inchers, the LC320SL1 offers 1,368 by 768 resolution, also known as 720p. Don't fret about that: most videophiles agree that 1080p is overkill (and unnecessary) in a set this size.

Other specs include an 8ms response time, a built-in ATSC/NTSC tuner, and an impressive selection of inputs (for a lower-end TV): 3 HDMI, 1 component, 1 composite, and 1 PC.

It also has digital, analog, and optical audio outputs, meaning you have plenty of options for working around the LC320SL1's down-firing speakers (which, let's be honest, probably sound mediocre at best).

Ultimately, this model would be ideal for a bedroom, dorm room, den, or the like. And at $275-ish out the door, how can you go wrong? By the way, CNET hasn't reviewed this model, but it has a couple very positive user reviews on the Target product page and even more

Bonus deal: Speaking of TVs, Yugster's deal of the day is a refurbished 42-inch Vizio SV422SVT LCD HDTV for $699.99. That may not seem like an incredible price until you consider what this TV's packing: 802.11n, Netflix, Vudu, Rhapsody, and a 240Hz display. Wish my TV had all that!
