In a preemptive strike against their competitors, Sony, Samsung and Panasonic have dropped the retails on some their hottest and best HDTVs resulting in savings of hundreds of dollars.

There is no need to wait for Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving) to buy a new HDTV, with these new price reductions.

Here are a few examples:

Sony KDL-52XBR4 was $4499.99 now $3999.99 a $500 drop
Sony KDL-46XBR4 was $3599.99 now $3299.99 a $300 drop
Sony KDL-46S3000 was $2299.99 now $1899.99 a $400 drop

Samsung LN-T4671 was $3399.99 now $3199.99 a $200 drop
Samsung LN-T4661 was $2399.99 now $2199.99 a $200 drop

These lower prices and others are reflected in this week’s hottest deals article below.
