I have seen quite a few Black Friday advertisements offering some deals on HDTVs. But some of the products being sold are off brand or lower cost brands, So when I saw this sale on a Sharp 46″ 1080p 120 Hz HDTV for $699, I had to stop and take a look. According to blackfriday.info they are listing that Newegg will have this deal on Black Friday.

On the Newegg site they describe the HDTV as:

Newegg lists the HDTV at $1,299. So selling it at $699 seems like a steal. But what do you think? Is this ad for real?

Comments welcome.
