Man Blade Runner is expensive. Worth it, but expensive.

Yep, killing physical media, one weekly ad at a time.

These should be $19 on release week.

I recommend you spend an extra $200 for the TCLP605. It's the best 55" 4K HDR TV on the market for the price by far. The local dimming and very low input-lag make this TV worth the extra bones. Just make sure you at least have a sound bar as the sound is shit.

I bought one mid-December. Awesome TV...until last Tuesday night. I'd just finished watching Netflix. The TV turned off by itself. I tried everything (factory reset by plugging the TV back in while holding a button combination on the unit, different power outlet, etc). Never turned back on, just died. I was really bummed. Fortunately, I was still within the 30 day return period. I got the Sony X800E and after some tweaking, I'm really happy with it. The PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and SNES Classic all look great on it. Can't wait to see Blade Runner 2049 on it.

Sony X900E and the Sony X930E. Please. If you don't mind. 

65X900E is $1499.99. 55 is $999.99.

 

Any info on price drops past 2699 on the LG oled65b7p or c7p?

All LGs in the ad are 1080p.

 

Pretty much any 55in 4k TV. Just trying to find a good price on any model for that size and resolution. So far most are capping at $399 so anything in that price range.

Nothing 55" in that price range.

I picked the wrong time to want a PS4 Pro, apparently. Wish I had the money a month ago.

The 2018 TLC 6 series sounds like an improvement from the P series so if you're interested in one, you might want to look into those and hold off on buying anything until they hit stores and reviews are released.

Warner Brother seems to have taken a new approach to physical media it knows will sell well regardless (and despite how 2049 did at the box office, Blade Runner has always been a perennial seller on home media) - first IT and now Blade Runner 2049 locked solid at $25 for the Blu and $30 for the UHD regardless of retailer.

It's been speculated that Warner doesn't put their movies on sale in the first month due to a deal with Redbox.

Yeah, this has been going on for a while, since at least last year.  The good news is the films eventually do go on sale within a month or two (usually for $14.99 or so).

I’ve been going digital lately for my 4K movies. Usually can find codes for $10 or less for digital on various trading forums. And I’ve been surprised at how good the streams look even when compared to disc.

That said, I get the 4K Blu-rays when they go cheap then sell the codes inside to recoup my original purchase. :)

Got 2049 last month with some deal at FandangoNOW for about $15 just because I couldn’t wait to own it!

A 1080p disc on a 4k capable player and a 4k TV look slightly better than 4k streams minus the HDR if it has it.
At least a lot of those codes have DV so that helps.
Otherwise I like your plan, 4k physical especially with DV is king and always will be

Anyone here with a 900E, is the 34ms input lag really noticeable if I've always gamed on an LED anyway? Like I'm most concerned about PvP stuff like Rainbow Six Siege and Gears 4 with the wall bouncing and strafing. Does it feel pretty responsive? I don't plan on going pro or anything but I do like to play competitively for fun.

I Went with Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga. I Own and played the original version on the Game Boy Advance and enjoyed it and good writing and the timing based combat system is easily my favorite of any turn based RPG.

New Super Mario Bros. IMO. Super Mario maker is fine, I haven’t played Superstars, and Mario & Luigi is a drag, lots of dialogue and even more handholding.

I got my 900e right before Black Friday and love it. Haven’t noticed any lag. My last tv was an LG lcd that was 10 years old.

that's good to hear. Do you play much multiplayer? I'm mostly concerned about how much it'll affect pvp stuff. I don't want to feel like I press a button and it takes a noticeably long time to register.

welp, forget about this. The 930E is on sale for $1499, and I have $600 of BB credit burning a hole in my pocket, so I'm going with that one instead. I've seen both of these sets side by side and the 930 is an objectively better looking TV.

 Tyrok, 

 

Do these Samsungs come with the Component input dongle/adapter? I have some older gaming systems I'd like to keep connected to a new TV and was wondering how well they work with that & if it affects it in anyway? 

 

Appreciate your help and advice in this thread!
