On Friday Nov. 12 Best Buy offers this TV as early Black Friday Deal.
As reported earlier, Best Buy unveiled the new early Black Friday deals available tomorrow Friday Nov. 12. The lead item in this new sale is the 40-inch Toshiba 40FT1U HDTV on sale for $399.99. The question is if this is a great deal or not? Let's look into it.
The Toshiba 40FT1U is a 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV with built-in NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuner. Other features of the 40FT1U include 3 HDMI ports, USB port (photo viewer, music player), VGA port, digital audio output, gaming mode, 24fps cinema mode with 3:2 Pulldown, REGZA Link, and Toshiba Dynalight dynamic backlight control. Best Buy's photo of the TV says LED on it. There is no mention of LED backlight in the specifications. I do not think its LED, but the TV is adjusting backlight to improve contrast.
This HDTV has some nice features that grade it up, but the 60Hz panel is of course not state of the are. A 120Hz display is making quite a difference especially when you watch action moving or sports. On the other hand we talk here about a 40-inch full HD TV for under $400. The best prices you can get a 40-inch 120Hz HDTV are around $700. iSpeaking of price, Amazon is selling the Toshiba 40FT1U for $499.99 right now. The Best Buy Black Friday deal saves $100.
