Spider-Man was $38.99 at Newegg the other day. Maybe more sales by the end of the year is not out of the picture.

Amazon runs semi-frequent deals with the remote and the hub for about 70. The remote you get is whatever they have extras of at the time. Just a heads up in case you were willing to hold out. I like the hub because I can then use my phone AND Alexa to control my TV which is great when I cannot find the remote, which is always.

I have same setup at home it helps not having to point at each device and it controls my Roku 3 and makes it easier for my dad to watch tv and it switches to right input. You can even turn on your devices remotely via the Harmony app.

Unless im looking at the wrong bundle, or ccc is wrong, the harmony ultimate bundle with the hub hasnt been below $130 and is currently $150 on amazon..

I picked up the $60 hubless at BB and will pick it up later today. Im less than 10ft from tv/console/reciever anyway so i doubt the hub will be needed. My xbox one x im going to move anyway so that may be the only one with an issue (narrow ir line of sight complaints i guess)

I assume i can grab that $62 set without the lcd remote and just use that remote upstairs and the hub down in my office where everything else is.

I think it's for the write speed. On a Switch it won't matter much as you'll read way more than you'll write. Considering the price for this one is lower than Ultra usually is, I would go for it.

 

My Switch has a regular Ultra 128GB U1 (paid $25, currently $23 on Amazon) and hasn't had any problems. There are also U3 cards, but not necessary for the Switch.

Thanks for the clarification!  The Ultra on Amazon is the other one I was looking at.  I'll probably shoot for the Ultra Plus then, unless the Ultra's faster reading speed (100MB/s vs the Plus's 80MB/s) actually makes a significant difference for the Switch.

I've started going digital with my games in the past few years so these ads aren't as exciting as they used to be. But I do plan to pick up some 4K movies on sale.

Pick yourself up a LG C8 65".

 

4K OLED HDR TV of a full 65 inches of glory. A real man will be spending $2,100 for this TV.

 

After you get your TV you'll have to strap on your testicles and get yourself a 7.1

 

or 5.1.2 surround system (Dolby Atmos)

I honestly do have this problem.  I got a Samsung KS8000 for one room and loved it.  When my kid broke another TV in a different room I used it as an excuse to upgrade to the LG OLED and now when I watch the KS8000 (or other TV's too) it feels like the TV is broken because it doesn't look as good.

Black Friday deals on televisions are usually the entry level sets from various manufacturers. If you are serious about quality of picture and features, you have to spend at least twice the amount (bare minimum) of any BF TV set. I tend to buy the higher end televisions because how picky I am and its a purchase I am willing to spend more on for quality and I expect it to last for years before I sink more money into another set.

$1500

But flexible -- I dont want to spend the $2500 for OLED.

The best TV deals aren't on Black Friday anyway. Wait until the rest of the year and you'll get greater deals.

 

Maybe the 65 inch Sony X900F will drop to $1500, if it does, grab it. Great TV. Right now, it's $1800 Or maybe the Vizio P Series Quantum will drop to $1500(also 65 inch). It was $1700 a month ago, right now it's $2100, it could drop again. Another highly regarded TV. Or one of the Samsung Q8FN or Q9FN, though I doubt they hit $1500. Unless you are hung up on OLED.

 

If you don't care a ton about picture quality, you could get the lesser Samsung Q6FN now. 65 inch for $1300 or so, but it's not as good as the TVs I mentioned. I'd just wait for one of the ones I mentioned to get a little lower and grab them. Maybe Cyber Monday or later holiday deals.

I am going to eventually get an OLED for my living room. Are they prone to burn in at all? I will mostly use it for my gaming with some movie watching once in awhile.

You'll spend $1500 but not an extra $600 for a 4K OLED HDR TV that will last you 6+ years?

 

https://slickdeals.n...earchBarV2Algo1

 

Last time the 65" model was on sale for $2,000. (refurbished) It will probably hit that again this Black Friday.

 

I payed $2100 for my 65" C8 (NEW) for reference.

 

The 55" model was on sale for $1300 (refurbished).

 

You could always pick up the 55" model for around your $1500 price range instead.

 

Visual wise I would never use an LED or QLED TV. OLED will look better, just like Plasmas did before.

 

Here's a deal from 4 days ago. Now expired where the 55" LG E8 (same as C8 but has better in-tv speakers which I have no need for) was going for $1500.

 

https://slickdeals.n...pm-est-free-s-h

 

I'd expect Black Friday to have a deal again on one of these tv's.

 

I game on my PC but the input lag on the LG C8 is very reasonable.

Golden, how did you pay $2,000 for a new C8, besides gray market? The best I saw last year was $2,100 for a brand new B7 from a major retailer, which is an authorized LG provider. That's when I grabbed mine.

If you have $1500 to burn you're really doing yourself a disservice by not going a bit further and getting an OLED, especially since since 65B8 or 55C8 can be had for ~$1500 already (without tax or shipping). I don't like spending too much time on slickdeals but if you look around there you'll find good OLED deals pretty regularly. Also, I wouldn't worry too much about authorized dealers as long as the seller is reputable.

I got mine off of Slickdeals from an EBAY seller. Came with the offical warranty and was a U.S. model. If you check out Slickdeals there's been quite a bit of sales for the LG C8/LG E8 for $2100-$2300.

 

They've been throwing them out like hot cakes.

 

BuyDig has been doing a lot of deals.

Did they alter the game selection since they originally posted it this morning?  I'm pretty sure when I was browsing it this morning after waking up, that Lego DC Villains Deluxe for Switch was shown for $40.  It's even in the OP.  But I can't seem to find it anywhere in their ad now.  I was really hoping the price might be the same for the PS4 version too, but now that it's not even listed, I don't know what to think.

Starlink for $35? Count me in! I'm a sucker for Star Fox but wasn't going to pay $75 for it. I'm digital only this generation but that Arwing is way too neat to pass up. It also looks like my 4K collection will get another boost x_x

Thanks for pointing this one out! Reminded me I need a hard drive for my PS4 since I just picked up Red Dead.

Looking at Dragon Quest and AC:Odyessy (but really waiting for the Gold edition to drop) other than that and the PSN deal. Not much I’m jonesing for.
