Wal-Mart Father's Day HDTV 'deals'

We get advance word on Wal-Mart's special Father's Day HDTV sale that starts June 16.

Wal-Mart is already selling Vizio's 1080p VO420M for $697 online. Walmart

Following the demise of Circuit City, Wal-Mart's been making a big push into the electronics market, and one of its PR folks let us in on a couple of upcoming "deals" on certain LCD TVs. The sale runs from June 14-20, or while supplies last.

We've seen lower prices on the Sony, but the Vizio and Sanyo look pretty close to rock-bottom. (Note: Just checked and Walmart is selling the Vizio VO420M) online for $697. The "M" and "E" series appear to be the same model--or at least very similar).

Update--Here are a few more electronics deals Walmart will be throwing out there for Father's Day:

  • Magnavox NB500MGX Blu-ray Disc player ($128 )
  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play Wii bundle with Wii Motion Plus Accessory and protective sleeve ($59.96)
  • PS3 (80GB) Bundle including Quantum of Solace on Blu-ray Disc and the MLB '09: The Show ($399 )
  • Dell Inspiron Black Notebook Computer ($398--not sure which model) or Dell Studio One 19 All-in-one Touch Desktop Computer ($848)
  • Canon Pixma Ink Jet Photo Printer with Fax($69)
  • Seagate Free Agent Go 250GB Portable Hard Drive($69)
Note: Due to pricing laws, prices may differ in some states, such as Alaska, Hawaii, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico, and on Walmart.com.
