Serriously? You think that is a good idea?
Agreed completely. Personally, I'm against borrowing money for anything but a house but it seems especially ludicrous to borrow money for an entertainment item. As has been mentioned before, they really aren't that much money that you can't save up for them. Set aside the money and then buy one next February. Usually they are on sale around the super bowl but I'd also expect prives to drop ahead of the February deadline as they flood the market with HDTVs.
One final note, the zero down - no interest for a year deal is just asking to get screwed. You never know what will happen in that year and those interest payments will be killer when they kick in.
