Earlier this week, we posted an article on whether to buy a 2010 closeout or wait for the 2011 models, which are beginning to ship now through  April.  Today we scoured the on-line dealers for the  best big screen closeouts. These are incredible deals. We picked the hottest dozen with the biggest discounts, from  36% to 61% off retail.

We found the best 2D deals are the on select big screen (42-inch or larger) plasma, 120Hz LCD & LED (LCD) TVs.

The deepest discounts go to the leftover 2010 3D Ready 240 Hz LED and plasmas from LG, Panasonic, Samsung and Toshiba. Keep in mind, 3D HDTVs make the best 2D images so even if you don’t intend to use the feature, you’ll be getting fantastic 2D HDTV.

Two bundle specials. Toshiba is giving away 2 pairs of its 3D glasses and a 3D ready Blu-ray ($590 retail value) with its  Toshiba 46-inch 3D TV or 2 pairs of 3D glasses ($340 retail value) with its 55-inch 3D model. Details are linked below their respective Toshiba listings.

These are the best close-out pricing we’ve seen on brand new HDTVs .  FS=Free Shipping, (Note: prices are correct as of posting and may change at any time, please verify with our links; All  TVs sold directly by Amazon offer free shipping;  Most states do not collect sales tax on Amazon orders [with the exceptions of  CO, KS, KY, NY, ND & WA].
