Walmart Black Friday 2013: Are Guaranteed In-Stock Items Worth Buying?

 Funai LF320FX4F 32-inch HDTV for $98

Walmart is offering the Funai LF320FX4F 32"HDTV for just $98 as part of its Black Friday promo. Never heard of Funai before? Well, neither have we.

This off-brand HDTV is about as bare-bones as it gets. It only displays up to 720p video, rather than the full 1080p resolution most higher-quality HDTVs offer. It only has two HDMI inputs, which limits things to just a cable box and one other input, such as a gaming console. Perhaps the worst thing about this deal is that the refresh rate is just 60Hz, which means it won't display fast-action sports smoothly. Quality HDTVs have a refresh rate of 120Hz or 240Hz.

While the Funai LF320FX4F certainly won't blow the competition's socks off, it is a decent deal considering that 32" HDTVs typically sell in the $199 to $249 range. Just be sure to keep your receipt to make sure it meets your needs as we often hear from people that are dissatisfied with cheap HDTVs after getting them home.

    Plainly stated in the Ad… One guarantee card per customer per item.. so YES. You may buy one for each item you’re waiting on…

      2 mistakes with this article. The first is Walmart is opening at 6pm not 6am. Second the Walmart ad clearly states one card per item.

    In terms of your post about the 32″ Funai. At that size the 60Hz refresh is just fine. When you habe smaller tvs the refresh rate doesn’t matter so much. If it was a 40 and up it would be preferable for 120 and needed at 50 and up. The 1080 is also preferable but not a huge deal breaker for a 32 either. If you had 120 or 240 the tv isn’t big enough to show a huge difference.

      No, you can’t order them. You have to be at the store during the sale times to get the items. On select items (like the larger tvs that have que lines) you can show up 2 hours prior to sale time and get a wristband that will save your spot in line for that item

    Would anyone order these on Amazon? And is Apple allowing Amazon to do it? or is it better to just go to Best Buy or Walmart? Great post by the way The Nexus 7 should be a really great deal.

    waited in line and paid for mini iPad at walmart on black friday. Item still has not been delivered as of 12/22. Can’t get a customer service person on the phone. Very unsatisfied customer, but what should I have expected…this is walmart we’re talking about.
