"Lost" returns February 2. The Super Bowl XLIV airs five days later. March Madness kicks off in, well, March. How many more reasons do you need to finally treat yourself to a big ol' HDTV?
Walmart.com has the Sceptre X46BV 46-inch LCD HDTV for $598. Amazingly, that includes free shipping--a rarity with big TVs--though you'll likely have to add sales tax.
Even so, that's one of the lowest prices I've ever seen on a TV of this size. OK, but is it any good? CNET hasn't reviewed the X46BV, but the 80-plus user reviews on Walmart's product page average just over four stars. Similarly, the user reviews at Newegg are overwhelmingly positive.
From a spec standpoint, the X46BV certainly seems to deliver. It sports 4 HDMI inputs, 2 component inputs, a VGA port (for connecting to a PC), and an ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuner.
Don't expect any fancy features like automatic source detection or input labeling. But do expect "awesome" picture quality (one reviewer's words) and an extra $100 in your pocket (this set previously sold for $698). Hard to beat!
