Now with more information available about LCD monitors on sale for Black Friday I need help deciding which to get.

Here are the ones I'm thinking about getting:

Best Buy Envision 22" Widescreen $149.99 (model H22W)

Best Buy Samsung 22” Widescreen $199.99 (model 220WM)

Circuit City Acer 22” Widescreen $169.99 (model AL2216Wbd)

Comp USA (same Acer 22" as Circuit City above)

CompUSA Acer 24” Widescreen $249.99 (model AL2416WBsd)

*Should I even include the Westinghouse 22" from Target for $167?

I'm thinking I will be going to CompUSA to try and get one of those Acers, can anyone recommend anything different?

Ok, after doing some digging I've decided to try Best Buy for the Samsung. CompUSA's deals are with mail-in rebates, which I'm not too keen on.

After reading the details of Best Buy's "Doorbusters" Black Friday sale it looks like I'm going to be in for a long night/morning:

How to Shop the Friday Doorbusters Specials at Best Buy

Hoping to get in on the amazing deals at Best Buy on Friday, November 23? You'll need to get there early in the morning, way before the stores open at 5 a.m.

Here are a few things to know before you go:

Prior to opening, a line of customers will form outside the store.

Starting at 3 a.m., with the front of the line, employees will hand out tickets to customers for Doorbuster and Bonus Doorbuster products (these are the front cover and BestBuy.com limited-quantity items, excluding CDs, DVDs and video game software).

The tickets, limited to 1 ticket per customer per item, will grant you the ability to buy the Doorbuster items.

These tickets are valid for a limited time. The products requiring a ticket must be purchased, or in your hand, by 9 a.m. This is when the remaining inventory, if available, will be released to the general public.

We are unable to guarantee all customers in line will receive a ticket. See Customer Specialist for details.


!!!!

In case you didn't catch it, they will start handing out the tickets at 3am, meaning people will have already arrived and formed the line before then. I'm probably going to end up staying awake all Thurs. night just to get this damn monitor. Wish me luck...
