Default Does this sound like a good deal?

I got an email from Comp USA, with this deal:

Sylvania LC420SS8 HDTV, Sylvania NB501SL9 Blu Ray DVD Player (Bundle)
Tiny URL - create a shorter link

I'm not very well versed in the tech these days - we've been fine with standard tube tv's, etc...but now that we've decided to move forward, I just want to make sure I'm not getting ripped off!

Any info is appreciated! Thanks!

Well, I didn't even look at the "deal" on the link. Why should such a store send you an e-mail? Could this e-mail take you to another web site that looks just like Comp USA, but one that is not? The simple fact that you are not sure about the "deal" tells me that you are suspicious.

I would not take such a chance, but that's me.

No no no - it's a legit email. I signed up for them, and that was one of their sale items. I wasn't sure about whether or not it was legit, I just wasn't sure if that tv and that player are worth buying...

I buy from Comp USA and Tiger Direct often.

Type in the model number in Google and find out what kind of deal it really is.

When I bought our LCD TV, CompUSA was one of the stores I priced. I was not impressed. I didn't look at your link, so I don't know the model in question or pricing, but I'd be hesitant to buy a TV from CompUSA without carefully checking out the specs, warranty info, and shopping them on the price first. Their prices were very high, compared to the other stores I looked at. I eventually ended up with a 32" LG that I bought from Circuit City for a good price - it was a display model so it was a pretty deep discount.
