Olevia 42" HDTV for $807.30?!

What's the catch? I've been watching HDTV prices, hoping to trade in my old PowerBook G4 for a nice 40+" HDTV, but this deal seems to good to be true.

There's a Target not far from here - can I just go in and pick it up using the coupon code somehow? They're listing what I think is the same model TV in the Sunday paper's ad section for $899...

You didn't add any link to where you saw it at that price, but the amount works out to what a person would pay if they opened a Target RedCard credit account and got an additional 10% off their purchase. Is that what you're seeing? I'm not into opening new accounts willy nilly, but that one might almost be worthwhile. Except I'm not in the market for a TV, so I won't be doing it.

My getting that baby at Sears for $650 (& tax) in November is looking better and better. It's nice not to see things go down in price after I buy them for a change. FWIW, it's a very nice set.

If you take a look at a regular 1080p LCD beside of the new 1080p with 120Hz refresh rate,
you won't buy the old model, to me it makes that much difference. Then again $807 is an
awesome deal on a 42" 1080p!

I agree. I will not buy a new set unless it has the 120Hz refresh rate feature. The first time I saw it was at Best Buy on a Samsung LCD, and I had no idea what the difference between it and the others were but it looked a lot better to my eyes. After I read the specs I saw that it had the 120Hz refresh rate and the others did not.
