Walmart Black Week


Wallyworld is pushing itself to the max this week. They plan on opening at midnight Black Friday. While they say that this is to keep shoppers out of the cold, we know they are after those shoppers who consider the day a sport and line up a couple of days early. Nonetheless, the electronics will not be available until 5:00 a.m. Since the store offers plenty of online deals, you can still stay out of the cold.


The latest iPod touch is available in a 8, 32 or 64GB Bundle for $223.00 that comes with accessories. Upgrades and optional speakers can be added.


Before the Kinect runs out in your neighborhood, there is an Xbox 360 4GB Console that comes with the controller. The Bundle includes 'Kinect Adventures' and your choice of two other games at a price of $388.00.


If this is your year for a big screen, $399.00 will get you a RCA 42" Plasma 720p 600Hz HDTV. It has a 1024 x 768 resolution, 176ยบ vertical and horizontal angles and built-in ATSC digital/NTSC analog tuner.

Wake Up! It's Cyber Monday


Many of the stores that featured Black Friday bargains carried over through today and some of them have additional deals. Sony is giving up a PS3 or Blu-ray player with purchase of a Bravia HDTV. Also check with Dell, the Apple Store and Amazon, where they seem to be having cyber week. And if all else fails, search what you are looking for by including the word "cyber" when you do so. Even simpler, hit our Holiday Gift Guide. Happy shopping!

Amazon Black Friday All Week


While searching around for our Holiday Guide, we wondered if Amazon would have any Black Friday deals. It seems that they are having an entire week of deals in conjunction with American Xpress. Mark the link below to get in on the action through Friday and get some of your shopping out of the way. Note that some are a first come, first grab kind of thing. There are also Gold Box Deals, like this Polk Audio SurroundBar 360 System, that has been marked down from $1,199.00 to $399.00.

Early Bird Black Friday Deals Live Now


Well great news everyone, you don't need to wait in those crazy long lines tomorrow to get some of the great deals that are out there. Circuit City, Best Buy, CompUSA, and Office Max are letting people access to their black friday deals online tonight, therefore avoiding the need to wait in long lines, possibly in the cold.

One of the most exciting things for us is the Circuit City deal for the Seagate 500GB external Hard drive for only $80 after mail-in rebate. Anytime we get to add 500GB to our network for under 100 bucks we get excited, yeah we know, we have a problem, but with the ever expanding need for storage we say spend for the future. There is another deal from Circuit City of a 1TB external drive from Western Digital, but it is $200 after rebate so you can buy 2 external drives from Seagate( a better product ) for $40 less then the Western Digital Drive.

Circuit City has a bunch of other deals that might appeal to someone looking to add a few gadgets to their home network. How about a 2GB memory stick for $7.99! We have found that having a bunch of memory sticks around the house is a good thing. We use them all over the place, from helping to run our Mvix system to being the OS for our FreeNAS box. For $7.99 it is hard to resist.

The other product of interest from Circuit City is the computer case from Thermaltake. We use one of these for our main NAS server and we can't say enough about them. This is the best case we have ever owned. Yes it weighs a ton, but it has a ton of expansion inside as well as more fans than you can imagine. We have 6 drives in ours and they are constantly cooler then they were in their previous case.

Going to these sites right now is like waiting in the line tomorrow though as most of them are either slugish or non-responsive, but going this route might allow you to sleep your thanksgiving turkey hangover off. Here is a list of 4 of the stores that have their sales online right now:

Black Friday Deals Are Too Good To Pass Up


Well we have been keeping our eye on the black Friday deals that have been reported and we wanted to share some that we thought you might be interested in. There are plenty of great deals to be had on Friday, it all comes down to how willing you are to fight the crowds. Some of these deals are in store only so you might have to show up at like 6 AM to have a fighting chance to get in on them while others you can actually do online so you can sleep in on turkey day and still get a sweet deal on the product you want. OK, so what do we have for you...

Well as anyone that reads this blog knows that we have an unhealthy obsession with storage in our house and our mouth started watering when we found out that Circuit City would be selling a Seagate 500GB external HD for $79.99! That is around $40 less then their normal sale price meaning that you can add a Terabyte to your home network for $160!! Compare that to what Amazon is selling it for and you can see the savings. Seagate makes excellent drives that come with a 5 year warranty. We personally don't use anything else in our systems. We have had great success with them and don't feel the need to test the waters with anyone else's product, and at $79 it is very hard to pas up!

For anyone looking to add another computer to their home network to add either a MythTV box or a media server or storage center there is a great deal from Dell that might be too hard to pass up. You can get a pretty sweet system with a 24" monitor for $649. You would be hard pressed to build a similarly configured machine from parts for less then this. Consider the fact that for $649 you are also getting a 24" monitor and it might send people over the edge. The monitor alone is worth $470 so it just shows you the value that this system provides. We are very tempted by this, you can add a powerful system to your network that can handle any of the jobs you throw at it as well as getting a nice 24" monitor to enjoy some of your media on.

We will have more Black Friday info the rest of the week as more and more deals are announced. Be sure to check back often as we will try to put as much info up here as possible. The next 7 days are a geeks shopping dream come true. Companies give huge discounts on a ton of their products hoping to move a lot of their inventory. It is a win win situation.
