Black Friday is only days away, but for shoppers looking to avoid large crowds or just spend more time with family, Cyber Monday is the day to take advantage of great deals this holiday shopping season. And one of the best Cyber Monday deals this year appears to be at Walmart.
For those looking to buy a 40-inch TV, there are several lesser-known brands for under $400, but for those who do not want to risk going with a brand they are not familiar with, Walmart is offering a Cyber Monday deal on a 40-inch RCA for only $369. That is over $100 off the regular price of $489.
The 1080p HDTV offers 1920 x 1080 Full-HD resolution , a built-in digital tuner, and four HDMI inputs. It also has a VGA port so customers can hook up their computer to their TV to watch videos online.
In addition to the special features, the 40-inch RCA TV also has good reviews. On Amazon, it has a 4-star rating, with 13 out of 28 ratings giving it 5-stars. One reviewer praised the TV for its quality and simplicity: "Picture quality is really good, sound is clear, menus are easy to use, remote is quite nice, and I've yet to find any problems. I was able to setup my Tivo remote to control this TV without any issue," the reviewer said.
Another reviewer had a similar opinion. "I got this TV for my bedroom and my family and friends kept telling me it was too big for my bedroom, but after the TV arrived and I set it up, it was perfect!" he said. "The sound and quality of picture is good. I love my TV and now I come home to my friends and relative in my room watching my TV. =) I barely watch TV in the living room anymore."
There were three 1-star reviews for this TV, as well. However, two of them said that the TV shut down shortly after purchase. This usually means a manufacturing problem on the specific device -- but not on the product as a whole.
Nonetheless, shoppers thinking about purchasing this Cyber Monday deal should be aware of the possibility of getting a troublesome device. However, for only $369, the 40-inch RCA HDTV appears to be one of the best of Walmart's Cyber Monday deals.
