The best time will be after Super Bowl . Now what will be left to shop for after that it is hard to say.

Firstly, you won't really see much difference between a 720P or 1080P on a TV that small. At about 40" and up you will. Also, although you can use most modern TV's as a computer monitor, they aren't ideal. You'd have to make certain your resolution is set correctly on your computer. You can also use the ClearType setting in Control Panel to optimize the text.

An ideal solution though would be to get a dedicated monitor instead. Good Luck!

Right now, unless you are getting a real off brand, or refurb, 720p are in the $200-249 range and 1080p are $249-329. Pre-superbowl sales may get you another 20% off of that.

If you have access to Costco, they run deals on 24, 27, 28, & 32 inch Samsung TV/monitors regularly. And the price ranges from $149-239.

At this point virtually all of these Samys are 1080p. As was mentioned above, you don't need 1080p on a TV this size, BUT, 1080p is exactly what gives you respectable resolution for dual use as a PC monitor.

We have a 24 inch Samsung TV and it works fine for dual PC-TV use. We paid $149 for it.

I just bought a 1080p 32" oCosmo TV for my parents for Christmas for $199 on Amazon. They needed a TV to put outdoors to put sports on when doing yardwork, so it didn't need to be top of the line. I just installed it yesterday and it works great. I can't speak for longevity, but the quality is surprisingly good for the price.

If you search Amazon for "Samsung UN32EH4003 32-inch 720p 60Hz LED HDTV" you'll find a good TV for a good price. I got it for $225 just before Christmas, so maybe keep an eye on it and see if it drops again.

@dealseekerdude: A concern regarding COBY - didn't they go out of business last summer? I recall reading that the company that bought their assets was not honoring warranties - but perhaps that applied to stuff sold prior to their buying of the assets.

For any electronic item - you cannot beat Costco. For TV's they add an additional year to the manufacturers warranty, and you can get an additional squaretrade warranty for an additional 3 in store. Not to mention you will probably save the cost of your membership over the year.

@bluemaple: I didn't know that, but you're right! Here's a link to info from Wikipedia:

Guess "Caveat Emptor" applies then!

@kylelmccoy: and those Square Trade extended warranty prices at Costco are cheap, $29 for under $500 TVs. No brainer, at least for a $200+ TV.

And something not so obvious - for TVs bought new elsewhere, apparently you can still buy the Square Trade warranty at Costco. You don't get 5 years total because you don't get the extra 1 year that Costco gives you but you still get the added 3 years, cheap.

So you're thinking, can I buy that cheap ST warranty at Costco (different pricing/coverage) for that tablet bought elsewhere? Alas, apparently not.

At Sam's I bought a 32 inch Vizio smart TV, 60 hrtz 720, whatever that means for $199-200 on line with free shipping. haven't set it up yet but it sure seems like a good deal.

I think sears may have one for $179.99 but I can't find the ad..

@hobbitss: That is a nice deal on a 32 inch 1080p brand name TV (Sharp). Hopefully you posted the deal separately on Woot Deals.

@bluemaple:
I was out all afternoon and finally was able to post the deal...
