ATLANTA -

It is the final countdown to Black Friday and if you're in the market for electronics, this could be the Christmas to buy and buy big.

If you bought a television in the last five years, you're not going to believe how cheap this year. BrandsMart U.S.A. has a 32 inch flat screen for under $100 and a 50 inch for under $200.

Store representatives say that a 50 inch TV for what you used to pay for a 32 inch screen less than 5 years ago.

You can add on an LG Home Theater for $99 which means you would get a TV and entertainment system for under $300.

If money is no problem, check out the new 4K HD televisions. They have an incredible picture, but they are pricey even on Black Friday.

The store also offers a 7 inch Android tablet for $38. It is a price that has dropped by hundreds of dollars over the past five years as well.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the major retailers are cutting costs on electronics in an all-out price war. According to the paper, the fight is for market share over profits and electronics are the main attraction.
