Random question... anyone looking to trade some $3 games?
A store somewhat near me may have Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, which I already own. Really looking to get Pokemon Y which isn’t in stock anywhere.

I have an extra Y I'd trade for Alpha Sapphire. Lmk if you can get one

I found some more titles for 3 bucks...
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates To Infinity

Sonic Sega Genesis Classics both 360 and PS3

Found SSB Wii U for 3 at a store on BS, then checked again a couple days later and it was back at 60!

Thank you for the informative roundup trchavez416!

 

Though I think New Super Mario Bros. U (Wii U) might actually be this one:

https://brickseek.co...r/?sku=46368175

 

The one you linked comes up with no results in my area at all but this one does (though none for $3). Anyway, not sure.

Yeah, I think you're correct...IIRC, that game was one of the ones that someone mentioned but didn't provide a SKU or whatever. Or maybe I just fudged it up...whatever. Lol...I fixed it in the post and put your link up there. Thanks!

English? Ok, sure ghetto monkey. You're 2 years younger than me so stop acting like a 10 year hopped up on Red Bull and pixie dust trying to impress the "squad" on CoD. Seriously, your posts are toxic sludge. Drop a quartet of baby amphibians in them and we might get a really obnoxious mutant karate squad.
Jurai? Don't you dare bring that evil on me Ricky Bobby. You pestered him like he was Bieber and you needed that pic. His leaving certainly was not of my doing and don't ever again try to pass that shit off.
I'm not the first nor only person to point out your posts being ridiculous, unnecessary, and a cancer on the eyes of the rest of the forum. Be you but be less you in your posts if that means polluting our days with mindless drivel masked as "edgy"

I havent been keeping up on TV prices but

Sharp 55” Class 4K Ultra HD (2160P) Android Smart LED TV with Dolby Vision HDR is 29% off for 249

https://brickseek.co.../?sku=698760065

 

Which seems stupid cheap for what looks to be a nice tv but I might be wrong

I wouldn't say it's a clearance price, yet a universal price drop. Personally I would never call such a cheap MSRP TV 'good'. Unfortunately there is so much fake 4k nonsense out today there, QLED this and that, I feel the industry is just out there to trick consumers.

 

It's asinine to hear "well why would I buy this 65 inch 4K TV for $2,000 when I can go to walmart and buy one for $400, they're both 4k!". At that point there is no explaining the why.

The thing is its subjective. I would never pay 600+ for a tv as I have seen the same quality in lower end models. I paid 250 for my LG 49 inch and it works just fine, Ive also had Insignias in the past with the same clarity, maybe with 1 less hdmi then higher priced models. I just saw this deal and figured iI would point it out, I didnt see how the panel itself looks.

 

I almost always go by price to performance model. I have a G-story 27 inch 1440 144mhz monitor I got for like 299 on Amazon. I bought it last tax season before high refresh monitors started coming down in price, Havent had any issues whats ever with it, even has features I wasnt expecting like a USB 3.0 hub and stuff. But people skip over stuff like it because it's a no name brand, most of the times the internal parts are from other brands over stocks or B stocks.

 

Now if your a professional and need like the best color clarity or something then I can see in investing in a "High end" equipment sure.

 

In the end good and bad are subjective. To me a 55 in 4k HDR tv for sub 300 dollars is a good investment, as long as there's nothing majorly wrong with it.

 

Wish I could have seen it at 150 I would have got one in a heartbeat, Ive spent more on less.

See I've been on both ends. Years back I bought a cheap 47 inch Westinhouse that literally malfunctioned under a year, was repaired, then officially died 13 months after ownership. Later I moved to a Panasonic Viera plasma for around $1,300 and bought a four year service plan. No issues to date. Last year I said screw it, I want to buy a high end TV, and bought an LG OLED.

 

Now I can tell you as a gamer and mega movie buff (BDs and 4K discs in the thousands), I cannot go back to 'regular' TVs. It is just that drastic of a different to have a high end TV calibrated in a decent home theater.

Bargain bin 4K TVs are pointless.  It's not about 4K, it's about HDR.  That's what makes the real difference in picture quality.  You don't gain much of anything by just having the higher resolution.  Your eyes are not going to notice the uptick in resolution if you sit more than 8' away from your set either.  HDR is what gives the major improvement.

Yep - it's sad the TV industry completely cannibalizes its own potential growth by cutting corners with HDR on 4K sets.  If every Walmart in America had even a semi-calibrated (smoothing gimmicks turned off, etc) TCL 6 series playing a disc or stream with great HDR, the adoption of 4K TVs would legitimately jump, IMO.  Instead, even Samsung cranks out cheap crap and slaps "HDR" on the box when in reality it's almost impossible to tell their HDR from SDR (their QLEDs are another story, but most Walmart shoppers are grabbing their lower priced models based on the brand name).  

BTW, had to take back that LG UHD player - HDR10 looked great, but any Dolby Vision discs looked like TrueMotion was turned on (it wasn't).  So much for my attempt to pinch pennies.

This is one area of electronics and technology that I just don’t know enough about...I want to upgrade to a 4K TV that is a marked improvement over my 50” Westinghouse, but I know a lot of manufacturers slap “4K” on their sets without really making a big difference in internal parts and video output. If I wanted something to take full advantage of my PS4 Pro (and eventually start watching UHD 4K Blu-Ray movies on it), what’s a good brand and how much should I be looking to spend? I wanted to stay around $300, but it sounds like I’d have to drop a bit more to get the notable difference in quality. I’m also assuming the usual suspects (Samsung, LG, Sony, etc.) are the brands to search for.

My first 4K was a non-HDR Vizio, then I bought a low end Samsung with "HDR" and couldn't tell a difference. Returned it and got a TCL P605 and could see where the HDR popped well enough but kept having issues where it wouldn't switch between HDR and SDR on the One, so I got a Sony X900E and was blown away at the difference in quality. I have a B7A as well and it makes all the difference.

 

If you're happy with a $300 4K tv, that's great, really. But when you do start getting in the upper mid tiers and going forward there's a massive difference, especially when Dolby Vision gets involved.

$300 isn't going to get you a great experience.

 

TCL sells a $350 55" and it's pretty basic, but probably the best at that price. HDR isn't noticeable, but it would be good for a child's room/spare TV/guest room TV etc.

 

If you want the best bargain TV, you'll want to play the panel lottery and grab a TCL 6 series. Their QC isn't great - they are a cheap Chinese TV manufacturer that does everything all in-house but at that price level, you can't really beat them.

 

If you want to spend a little more, the Vizio P series is slightly better and has a better track record.

 

Next you'll be stepping into the high end. I recommend going with a Sony X900F, LG OLED B8, or a Samsung Q7F. Note that the biggest HDR format is HDR10, and all 3 support it. Dolby Vision is the more premium HDR format, and the Sony and LG support it. Samsung has a proprietary DV competitor called HDR10+, but most manufacturers are going with Dolby Vision. Apple, Nvidia Shield, Roku, Netflix, Amazon etc all support Dolby Vision.

So whats the difference between OLED and QLED ? I see Samsung is the only one marketing the QLED sets..

OLED = Organic Light Emitting Diode, there is not backlight on an OLED and as a result, it can have perfect blacks because the pixels can completely turn themselves off. It doesn't get as bright as LED but it can get so much more darker and as a result, the HDR compliance isn't as high on an OLED set.

 

QLED is just a regular LED set with their quantum dot technology. They used to not even advertise it, the KS8000 had it and it was one of their high end sets at not a ridiculous price. Then the next year they had the MU8000 and it wasn't anything special, but you'd think it was the successor to the KS8000 - nope. The KS line went to QLED and Samsung markets it to try and appear to be something different than LED, but it's not.

I believe the experience differs wildly from person to person on here but for me personally, the price is correct nearly 95% of the time.
