Has anyone received their $10 codes yet? Last time they sent them at 12:01am est on the dot. For reference, that was the time they were all broken but were replaced the next day.

the wording of the fine print says that they go out starting today. :( I think that means some of us may be in for a bit of a wait.

I’ll give them a call at some point later. Seeing as how there is a set expiration date for these codes, sooner is preferred over later.

I'm calling in now. They got me on hold cuz they can't explain why I haven't gotten my $30 yet. Waiting on the manager.

Edit: he says the digital team is sending them out at random. Now he's transferring me to them.

Edit2: 17 Mins on the phone so far. digital team got me on hold to verify my purchases. I'm gonna go put some pants on.

Edit 3: 22 mins in. Still on hold. Gonna put a load of laundry in the machine.

Edit4: 26 mins in they said they'll call me back within an hour as they need to review my purchases.

They just called back. They said they're sending my orders to the promo team to try to expedite it but people should expect to get them within the next couple of days.

Well, don't keep us in suspense.....how did the laundry come out? Was everything clean? Were there any troublesome stains?

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. 

Well i know that a quality tv will generally have more weight but hot damm that 930e weighs over 71 pounds for a 55 inch, a comparison a normal 55 inch weighs between 30 to 40 pounds at most, what are they putting bricks in that television dam.

I looked at the 930e also but it’s edge lit.

I’ve actually have only been playing AC Origins since I got the tv. But from what I read the 900e with 31ms is on the lower end of input lag. Most reviews say unless your a pro gamer, you won’t even notice it.

The 930 is supposed to get DV later this month by way of a firmware update. So I guess that’s another plus for that.

Edit: With ces just ending and Sony announcing an updated version of the 900, it might be better to wait though.

Personally I’m waiting for the HTCT800 soundbar to go back on sale for 299, I missed it last time.

BB Chat wasn't too helpful.  Did point out the codes will be sent starting today.  I'll give it a week or so and see if they come.  If not, I'll write/call them back.

31? RTings says its 34. Have I been lied to my entire life??

 

and the 930 is edge lit, but its supposedly a different kind of edge lit. I'm not a techie by any means but many reviews say its superior to the 900E.

It is 34, I didn’t look it up was just going by what I thought it was. I haven’t looked up specs since I was shopping for mine. If input lag is that important to you, you should look at the TCL 607p(605p at B.B.). The price and input lag are both significantly lower on the TCL.

Personally I don’t think the small upgrades/different tech is worth the extra money. I also think if your ok with spending $1500, at that point you might want to check out the oleds. But even some of those have some downsides.

Yeah man, I was considering an LG OLED but the potential for burn in scares me away completely. I know many owners will say they haven't experienced any and that's fine, but Murphy's Law always applies to me, so I'll stick with LED for now.

I don’t have an OLED TV but thought it was interesting to read that the reason Xbox One started having those pop up fly outs with tips is to help reduce burn-in on them. Know some people complained about them, but that’s as good of a reason of any for them.

I have a permanent swamp ass situation going on so it's not uncommon for my boxers and sweatpants to have butt grease stains. The trick is to throw in fresh lemon juice and some baking soda into the wash and it really helps to fade the oily residue.

Yes. They are treated like gift cards, so anything you can buy with a gift card will work.

I Don't see why not. Nothing in the fine print and basically works like $5 Rewards Credit. Just got to use it before February 3rd is all.

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.


I went from a 19ms input from my 2015 Vizio P series to a Sony X900e with 34ms and I don't feel any difference between the two. Gears 4, Battlegrounds, Forza, Cuphead, Injustice 2, are all responsive to my controller inputs.

HDR is a huge improvement over my old Vizio 4k which did not have it. The x930e is also a great TV, even if it is an edge lit panel. I considered it but decided to get a 65in for the same price range.
