HDTV Deals: Save on Select LG LCD, LED and Plasma HDTVs

By Rachel Cericola

When it comes to buying an HDTV, it can be hard trying to narrow down the proper purchase. Of course, you're going to want something that fits that spot. That said, price is usually a huge deciding factor. Everyone wants the biggest bang for their buck. However, even that tidbit may not help too much, when you see the giant sale Amazon has going on right now.

From now through September 1, 2012, Amazon is discounting a ton of LG HDTVs. OK, it's actually 28 -- but that's still a lot of nice options to have.

At last look, we found LCD, LED and plasma models available, in sizes ranging from 26 to 60 inches. Some have 3D features, some have web features, and some can just put a nice flat HDTV into the spot in your house that sorely needed it. Find out more about all of the models available on Amazon's main deal page:

New for 2012, LG's 60-inch 60PM9700 plasma has active 3D, a 1080p resolution, web features and more.

The largest, most feature-filled model on the list is the LG 60-inch 60PM9700 1080p Plasma HDTV. This set features active 3D technology, so it has a 1080p image in both 3D and 2D. New for 2012, the 60PM9700 also features THX 3D certification and the TruBlack Filter feature.

If you're looking to add in other components, this set offers plenty of slots, including four HDMI inputs and two USB ports. If not, it also has built-in access to LG's Smart TV platform. This provides on-screen access to popular web-based services like Netflix, Hulu Plus, VUDU, YouTube, Facebook, and a slew of other apps. Other "smart" features on this set include the Home Dashboard interface, Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) certification and Smart Share features.

Also, this model comes packing LG's 3-mode Magic Remote, which includes Wheel, Magic Gesture and Pointing control. Find out more about the 60PM9700 on Amazon's product page:

As far as the sale goes, the smallest option Amazon has with a 1080p resolution is the LG 32-inch 32CS560 32-inch 1080p LCD HDTV. Yes, there is a 26-incher on the list, but this model allows you to put a full 1080p HD image into that smaller space.

Otherwise, it's more of a no-frills model, with LG's Picture Wizard II calibration feature, a slim and narrow design, two HDMI inputs and one USB port. Find out more about the 26LS3500 on Amazon's product page:

Take a peek at all of the models that Amazon has on sale and see what size and features would work best for your space. Just remember that when you're placing that order, you should be placing it through Amazon -- and not one of the retailer's third-party merchants.

Amazon is offering the discounts on each purchase, as well as free Super Saver shipping and free 30-day returns. Also, each of these TVs are backed by Amazon's TV Low Price Guarantee. That means if you can find your purchase (same model, same size) for less within 14 days of the ship date, Amazon will refund you on the price difference. Better start shopping soon; this sale will run through September 1, 2012 or whenever the retailer runs out of stock.
