Better to buy now or later?

Hi guys
What do you all think...

We are in the market for a new TV. We want to replace out 50" Sony HD LCD projection TV.

I am leaning towards the Samsung Plasma 50" 7000 series.

It seems they can be had for ~$1500 with free 3D Blueray and 3D kit.

Seems like a fairly good deal, but wondering of you think prices will drop more closer to Xmas.

I heard somewhere that now is a good time to buy as manufacturers didn't get the sales they expected during the World Cup and are trying to unload????

ANy Ideas?

Many Thanks
Brian

Prices usually drop between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but usually on lower end models.

I kinda thought the same thing.
So you would agree that I likely wont find much of a better deal on a mid high end unit like the 7000?

Always seems like the black Fridays deals are for smaller low end models with blow out deals for $200-$300.

Maybe I'll grab my main unit now and get a deal on a small one for my bar later!!

Thanks

Now is always better than later. Life is short, enjoy what you can while you have the means to do so. Sure, a few sh!tty models will go on sale for Black Friday but its better to let the animals fight over those.

Buy what you want end enjoy.... :thumbsup:

I like your thinkin Mikey!
Going to have to convince the old lady that its worth it to spend the extra bucks to get what we really want.
If your going to drop 1k on a TV, whats another $500 :)

Traditionally, November is when you will see the best discounts.
