I was intrigued by the 3TB drive offer until I went to the Best Buy web site and read the reviews. It has issues with Macs. But if you use a PC, it looks like a great deal.

Bottom right corner for the Samsung 55" LED TV for $1099. I picked one up for my man cave and it is pretty sweet.....especially coming off a 46" projection TV.

Happy buying and Happy Thanksgiving to all.
