Walmart's Super Savings Event sets up Walmart TV sales

Walmart's Facebook page is shouting out about its latest price cuts, in the world of television, with the retail giant advertising more than 30 televisions with rolled back pricing.

The Facebook post is available here.

When a Facebook fanatic clicks through Walmart's Facebook link, he can eventually end up here (linked from the landing page). Although the Facebook post says 30+ TVs feature rolled back pricing, when you click through, you will see 55 sale items, instead.

To be clear, Walmart's Facebook post says that the sale will last through Sept. 14. Truth be told, the television sale is part of its Super Savings Event, and the only link from the landing page is for "TVs and Video," meaning other items are interspersed with the TVs that folks might be pursuing.

For example, among the 55 items is the DIGITREX DVD-836 DVD Player with 2 Karaoke Microphones. While a nice deal, at $24.88, it is definitely not a television set.

On the other hand, there are true bargainst to be found. Among them are:

RCA 32" Class LCD 720p 60Hz HDTV, 32LB30RQ for $198, described as follows: 32" LCD panel with a 1366 x 768 resolution and a true 16:9 aspect ratio. Includes two HDMI Inputs.

Philips 50" Class LCD 1080p 60Hz HDTV, 50PFL3707/F7 for $398, described as follows: a 50" LCD panel
with 1920 x 1080 full-HD resolution, true 16:9 aspect ratio, three HDMI Inputs, and SRS TruSurround HD. It also includes a PC input, meaning technophiles can use the Philips 50" LCD TV as a PC monitor.

Samsung PN60F5300 60" 1080p 600Hz Class Plasma (2.2" ultra-slim) HDTV for $848, described as follows: 60" LED (not LCD) panel with a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and a true 16:9 aspect ratio. Two HDMI Inputs.

Sharp LC-60E69U 60" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV for $828, described as follows: 60" LCD panel with a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and a true 16:9 aspect ratio. This HDTV includes not two or three, but instead four HDMI Inputs.

There are many, many more deals available.

As a side note, however, although these Walmart TV sales may be appealing to many, of interest is the unpopularity of the company among many of those who read its Facebook post. For example, the following comments:

Rainbow Espinosa It makes my heart happy that so many people are finally waking up to how bad Walmart is for the economy, towns and cities and working families. Never have, never will shop at this horrible employer! Buy local!

Wal mart is killing America and small business they are an evil company and Sam walten is rolling in is grave for what they have become!!!! Stay away from Wal mart

Brandon Montgomery Glad to hear Washington D.C.. is now demanding Walmart give a few bucks more per hour to employees if they want to build 3 new stores in D.C...They may bring jobs,,but less than full time and less than fair wage ...This means all there new Employees will have to get on Welfare and stamps , costing D.C tax payers more in the end...

It's hard to say who wins, the consumer or the corporation. Those looking for HDTVs may very well find deals more palatable at online stores like TigerDirect.com
