Anyone found any amazing deals yet? A lot of ads finally started coming out.

I'm looking for a good 65 inch 4k smart TV, maybe a nintendo switch. Always up for hunting and fishing stuff as well. Bought a bunch of video games last year during it.

Whatcha got?

TCL TVs get pretty good reviews for quality and low price.

TVs, mattresses and car stereo systems are places where salesmen absolutely love me because I'll always pay a little more for a little better.

Those are long-term purchases; 5 years or more as a general rule. Another $1,000 over 5+ years is less than $10/mo so it's just not a worry of mine. And you get a heck of a lot in return there; sort of the gift that keeps on giving over that 5 years because those are things you'll use every single day.

At a shade under $1,700 I'm inclined to consider it, but that's really just a $200 discount over where you could get them anyway and with the '19s coming out soon, that will be the going rate in short order.

If they'd drop that sucker down to $1,500 for the 55'', I'd be all over it.
I think Iím going with the 65Ē version. The only thing holding me back is finding a stand I like.

It's just such a good set. I mean I haven't been able to find a single cross word said about the thing. Some folks prefer one of Samsung's higher end QLED models because it's brighter and Sony has a new one that's a damn light cannon so it does color variation better, but both of those are quite a bit more expensive and not better; just a little different.

There doesn't appear to be a significant technology change on the horizon in the immediate future, so this is going to be a top of the line set for the next couple of years at least. Just a slam-dunk purchase, IMO.

But like I said, I think I can hold out just a little longer and get a better deal. Costco does a price adjustment where they'll put money back on your card if the price drops for 90 days after purchase, though so I may just decide 'screw it' and if a better deal comes around in December I'll have Costo slap some money back on my card.

edit: I wonder if anyone will have anything as good or better around Black Friday. This would make one hell of box to run ESXI on .
Damn. Thatís a beast of a cpu. Definitely wait until cyber Monday to see if Newegg has any deals you like better. Tomís Hardware is tracking component Black Friday deals on their website.

I totally get this sentiment - especially regarding televisions. I purchased a Sony Bravia 40" almost 10 years ago, used pretty heavily for streaming and games. Still works like it's brand new. Yeah, it cost like $700 or so. Well worth it.

I work at a State mental hospital with criminally insane psychopaths, murderers, rapist, real crazy people and i feel safer going to work than going out shopping on 'Black Friday' .

Speaking of mattresses, I'm in the hunt for a good king sized mattress. Heard of any "wow" deals on these? Nebraska Furniture Mart has good ones, but they are pretty proud of them.

Zero percent chance I’d pay a premium for equivalent Sony technology. And while I LOVE my Samsung FN8500 plasma (the last great set of the plasma era), OLED > QLED.

May keep an eye on Frys if in your area. I picked up the fairly new at the time 2017 model 55Ē over 2017 4th of July there on an unadvertised sale for $1,700 and recall they may have been around that last Black Friday. Slickdeals is a good source and avsforum has a deals section.

Love the set but only slight comment is it really shines when your room is dark but doesnít do a brighter room as well as some of the better FALD LED. Better than plasma in this respect though.

65" TCL 4k TV for $398
I saw that too. Didn't think the reviews were that great but it's an amazing price. Saw a Vizio 65 inch in Walmart for 399 but i assumed something was up with it. Went home, researched it and found out it was actually a really good TV and was over 750 everywhere. Went back and they were sold out. damnit!
