Samsung 32″ N5300

You gotta love Black Friday deals where you can get a Samsung 32" TV for under $170. I'm sure it won't have all the bells and whistles as other models, but if all you need is a TV for a spare bedroom, this will be hard to pass up. In the BoxTV, stand, remote, manuals,... Continue Reading →
