Probably not a great deal but walmart in bainbridge ohio had a large stack of 43 inch tvs for 100$  Sorry I don't know the sku brand or any of the details as I just walked past it.

I mean I'm in the market for a new TV, but I get the idea those are only 1080 when I'm looking to upgrade to 4K

1.5L Heineken holiday bottles are down to $2 https://brickseek.co...r?sku=820795978

$2 Styx Shades of Darkness PS4 - https://brickseek.co...o/?sku=53899155

57% off Carseat with decent reviews - https://brickseek.co...r/?sku=48628870

Those 1 1/2 liter bottles of Heineken are legit, man. It's packaged like champagne but I'm sure it'll go down as smoothly as Heineken always has.

If someone needed a spare bedroom TV or guest room TV, $100 for a 43" ain't bad given it'll probably just be for Netflix anyway.

Not disagreeing with that a bit. I'm replacing my primary gaming TV, tho.

I'd definitely look into input latency on anything replacing your primary gaming set, I love my old plasma and it arguably looked better than my current lcd, but the latency was killing me

Input latency should be entirely undetectable if you've turned off the right postprocessing options on the set (or turned on whatever "Game"/"PC" mode they've put into the firmware).

this is entirely incorrect

What is input latency?  I'm not remotely tech savvy.

Input lag, i would guess, refresh rate of the display, mode of the tv, controller used, network connection, and a number of other factors can exacerbate the issue. It's probably not a big deal unless you are playing fast paced shooters or fighting games online.

#7032 Jurai

yeah, higher latency will make your controls feel kinda 'floaty' due to the slight delay on response, yes modern tv's are better at it, but it's still important to consider if it's your primary gaming set, Rtings.com has a pretty good database of tested sets would recommend looking the model up that you're eyeing and just looking at hte numbers (anything below 22ms is ideal/you won't notice)

Input lag made my playing of Crash Trilogy on PS4 infuriating. I would push the button and Crash would jump a second later and in tight platformers where jumping and dodging is the main game play, this is a no no. I put my tv in game mode to correct it.

Be on the lookout out for possible massive toy clearance in your local stores. They had Star Wars and Transformers basic figures for $2, Marvel Legends for $5, Rampage playsets for $2.50 and much much more st one near me yesterday.

Went to more Walmarts this morning and also checked Brickseek some...the clearance appears to be nationwide and it’s way too much to list. I recommend checking your local stores.

local store has about an aisle and a half of toys clearance, they marked down alot of stuff yesterday by upwards of 75% off. looks like they are trying to get rid of it now, its been there since a few days after christmas.

FYI, Walmart associate here - the toy department modulars reset last week, which is why you’re seeing some crazy and/or random clearance around the country. Depends on the store, but some old stuff gets marked down since it no longer has modular locations and they prefer to not have it sit in the back room for years at a time (despite some finds in this thread haha).

Thanks for that information. I’m curious, do they keep marking this stuff down every few days until it sales? I noticed that many of the clearance stickers around here were dated 1/19 and then the prices were cut by half on 1/22.

A fellow associate told me prices get marked further every two weeks. Can't confirm though.

I prefer Walmart doing that instead of what Target does - salvage everything at a certain point and send it to Goodwill where they mark it up.

Wow, where was the Rio Olympics hiding? It's not going for as much as it was a couple years ago but it's still one of the pricier wii u games. I doubt it will be ported to the switch

At the photo counter oddly enough.

Went to my local store who conveniently had 5 in stock listed. None on the shelf. Asked the clerk, he scanned the UPC and then told me that it was in the back in something that sounded like the warehouse in Indiana Jones. He said it was in one of many unmarked bins and he wasn't going to look. I think I would have been happier with a response of "we just surplused them all" instead. Will try another nearby one instead and hope for better results.

I can tell and thanks for the information! Found some transformers like...

 

G1 Hot Rod 7$:

https://brickseek.co...r?sku=465091453

 

Transformers Generations Power of the Primes 5$:

https://brickseek.co.../?sku=674435604

Most of these were on clearance aisles and scattered all over. So if you are interested in these kinds of things, I think it is worth it to take a look at your local walmarts!

Those mini arcade games are pretty widespread at $5 at locations near me.  Almost universal (some still have them at $9).
