Nintendo Wii Plus Bonus Game, $200
Amazon currently sells the Nintendo Wii for $200--which isn't the cheapest deal if you're looking for the console alone. However, for a limited time Amazon will include a free bonus game with purchase of a Wii. Customers can make a choice of Wii Sports Resort, Wii Play with an additional Wii remote, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, or Endless Ocean: Blue World. These games retail for $30 to $50 separately.
The Wii console comes with one Wii remote and Wii Sports, so this deal completes the Wii starter pack with one additional game.
Vizio SV421XVT 42-Inch LCD TV With Blu-ray Player, $849
Looking for a starter home theater system? Begin with the basics--an HDTV and a Blu-ray player. Dell has a great bundle on sale--a 42-inch Vizio SV421XVT LDC HDTV and a VBR100 Blu-ray player for $849. The TV alone usually retails for around $900.
The Vizio SV421XVT had good overall performance in our PCWorld Lab tests. We really liked its sleek remote control and multimedia playback capabilities from USB drives. Images may be marred by digital artifacts and the color might look inaccurate at times, but the set's 240Hz refresh rate handles motion very well.
