Saturday HDTV Dealzmodo Roundup

I stumbled across a few deals on HDTVs today, so I thought I'd be a nice guy and group them all up for you. First up is a deal from Amazon: buy any qualifying Samsung TV along with this Samsung Blu-Ray player and get $200 off, which means Amazon is essentially paying you four bucks to take the $196 Blu-Ray player off their hands.

You can also get a 42" Panasonic VIERA plasma HDTV for only $660, which is a good hundred dollars off its general retail price. It's packed with three HDMI inputs, an SD slot, and a 15,000:1 contrast ratio.

Or, if you can't get enough Samsung, you can grab the Samsung 40" 1080p LCD for only $800 from 6th Ave Electronics, which puts it more than $150 lower than what you'd find elsewhere. It's got a 20,000:1 contrast ratio and a 5 ms response rate. [DealNews]
