Don't want to list any item specifically but through some googling I managed to find the link to one of the BF ads for their tv's by accident. Now if I tried to search the tv on their site the page wound not come up so it seems that amazon has put some type of block to hide the BF pages but I can assure you I managed to find the ad. I will try doing this for other BF items but just letting you all know so you can try your luck at doing this and confirm that it works. Also this page specifically stated that it was a BF limited time item.

Yes I did. I will not give away which tv for obvious reasons since its one I'm considering getting but I'll hint at the fact that the tv is not listed in this thread of already stated leaked tvs.

No offense, but if it's a lightning deal, it will be announced in the morning of the day the deal happens, or the day before even. So it isn't like we won't find out about it well before the sale price goes into effect.

Yeah you can search yourself and I know odds are against everyone. The nice part is it gives you the option to be notified when the tv is available. Good luck all.

Actually LCD, and LED are one of the same. LED is the type of back lighting on the majority of 40" and up LCD TV's. Even LED lighting can vary from edge lit, to back lit. If you are talking about motion blur, when referring to your friends set, Plasma's have historically outperformed LCD in this category. As far at what's the best, you will find opposing opinions, for varying reasons. Not all LCD and Plasma sets are created equal. Sometimes you have to narrow it down to specific models in each category.
I see there are going to be deals on the samsung, panasonic and vizio. What are the pros and cons of these makes? Is getting the samsung LCD/LED worth the price?

You add to cart, once it is in the cart, you have 15 minutes I believe, to check out with it. You can either check out in that time frame, or do nothing, after 15 minutes the tv will be removed from your cart and someone on the waiting list will get it. The most popular items always get a waiting list, because even in that one second, way too many people click to buy it. Plus some people have scripts and other things and literally add maybe 10 tv's to different computers and then just end up buying one or two. Anyway, hope this explains some of how the lightning deal works.



Why the rush? With lightning deals, the item is in your cart for 15 minutes, if you click and it is added, you have it for those 15 minutes guaranteed. There is no need for 1 click ordering.

I'm hoping my 50/50 fiber connection will give me an edge drool

the 50/50 won't, the fiber will, ping is most important in communicating quickly with the servers. Though I believe they are based in cali, which gives those of us on the east coast a bit of a disadvantage, but that never affected me last year.

Perhaps not. What you can do is run a DNS benchmark and update your DNS if your ISP is giving you slow DNS servers and/or bad routes.

Really liking the idea of the 60" Vizio for my new living room tv, but am optimistic I'll be able to get one if it is one of those Lightning deals. Last year all the tvs were selling out in seconds.
