Alas, already gone.

But two reasons not to fret:

1) That price is not too terribly uncommon for that set. If it's not available somewhere for that price now, it will be.

2) Some of the reviews I've seen for this set indicate that it suffers from excessive color wheel noise (a problem not shared by its more expensive 73" counterpart).

Although I haven't gotten around to upgrading my x-box cables beyond the RCA I'm pretty impressed with it so far. It was absolutely worth the 90 dollars.

ps: the sale on the divx player I posted has ended... hope some of you lurkers got in on that.

Bear in mind that for the coax digital inputs (which this one appears to have), an RCA video cable will work just fine. Try it when you get the chance.

Deal! Super Smash Bros. Brawl $20 preorder
« Reply #51 on: January 11, 2008, 09:01:27 AM »
Pre-order Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii on walmart site $19.82. Get it now, because I'm sure this is a screw up! There is a possibility of them canceling all orders for this price but it's worth trying to get rather than pay $50 for it when it comes out. They fixed the price, back to $49.82.

Yeah, that'd be nice.  Not a HUGE deal in the long-run if not though, as I was gonna buy the game anyway.  But it'd still be nice.

Now I'm seriously pissed, rather than say they could not fulfill my order they're pretending I tried to cancel the order.

What a bunch of bastards!!!!!

Did you print out anything when the website had the first price?  If so, I'd go to whichever of your local TV news broadcasts has a Consumer Affairs segment and bring that to them.  After the post-Xmas Gift Card screw-up, getting this exposed to the public would be great.

Typical Wal-Mart.   >:(
