Black Friday 2017 - The Epic Master Thread

Need some advice...why would a 65 inch be more than the 70 inch? Same model. I am torn between the 70 inch and 75 inch, I currently have a 60 inch that will be replaced by one of these, should I save the $800? Would I notice that much of a difference between a 70 inch tv and 75 inch tv that would justify spending an additional $800?

Sony 75-inch 4K Ultra HD smart LED TV (2017 Model:XBR75X900E), only $1,999.99
Sony 70-inch 4K Ultra HD smart LED TV (2017 Model: KD70X690E), only $1,199.99
Sony 65-inch 4K Ultra HD smart LED TV (2017 Model: XBR65X850E), only $1,499.99

They are all HDR correct? On Amazon it says YES, but on Best Buy it does not mention it.

I have the 65 inch you listed and it is amazing. As far as the other 2, it isn't just a 5 inch diagonal difference which in and of itself would be noticeable, they are different model classes. The 900 series are better Tv's I believe.

Not sure, but the higher the series number in this case 900e, the better the tv most of the time. For gaming the 850 and 900 Sony models have better processors so less motion issues with graphic intense games

Um, those are completely different classifications of televisions sets.  Completely different models.  It has nothing to do with the size vs savings. 

 

That TV is $1200 because its a 690.   That's a low end set, performance-wise. 

 

The others are XBRs and are 800 and 900 series.  They use better components and will have much better colors and contrast.

 

You get what you pay for when it comes to televisions.

What do you think of the Toshiba - 55" Class - LED 4K - 2160p MODEL 55L711U18?

 

I currently have an x360. I'll have an xboneS for black friday.

All this talk about OLED tvs..... last I read the LG model had bad input lag.

 

Meanwhile the 65" KS8000 still selling strong at $2400

 

https://www.amazon.c...t/dp/B01C5TFNSM

 

Thought the input lag was greatly improved on LG TVs from an update this year?

It is.  They added HDR Game Mode to the 2016 OLED's.   I jumped on one last year because they removed 3D from the 2017 lineup.  They're amazing TV's.

Anyone have suggestions on a decent surround sound system that's on sale? Hoping to spend no more than $200 but I'm sound system stupid :/ So far I'm looking at the $140 Vizio one from Wal-mart, but I have a 55" tv and not sure if the 32" soundbar is too small or if it'll be fine. I might end up just putting my money aside for another system later maybe up to $300, but I'm legit at a lost on what to get

Around 60-65 an hour but it depends on how many people we see a day. Sadly I'm not even rich.

I'm seriously considering getting the 55" Sony 900E for $999.99 on Black Friday even though I can't afford it.  Been looking at TVs and this seems like the sweet spot this year.   Really wanted one of the 60" Samsung K8000s last year and apparently this one has the same processor.  https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony-55-class-54-6-diag--led-2160p-smart-4k-ultra-hd-tv-with-high-dynamic-range/5748209.p?skuId=574820

I wouldn't be surprised if the Gamestop ad drops tonight when their regular weekly ad does.

I won an Xbox One X from Taco Bell and it came with a Forza 7 digital code. If you are interested I'd sell it to you for $30 and give you the special Taco Bell driving suit code as well.

Lemme know if interested.

Won't get Dolby Vision, just something to keep in mind going forward.

My Black Friday is limited to about 50 bucks so I understand and 15 of that is dedicated to getting RE7 for the wife.

That’s because they know most folks will come spend their money there anyway so why rush.
Never settle for full price unless you have no other choice. ;)

Finally..!! Someone mentioned a gift for their wife. Christ. It's been like pulling teeth this year to see a post like that here.

I wish I had a wife.. Haha.. Oh dear God.. Here come the tears..

Well one of the interest we share is gaming. Well luckily for me I found her early in life but don’t give up it’s someone out here for everybody.
