I'm a little curious if any of you are doing any of the doorbuster Black Friday sales or if you find any deals worth bragging about.
Best early deals I've seen are Duluth Trading longtail t-shirts for $10 (I often wear them to work) and Xbox Live $80 cards for $70 on Newegg. When you buy all or most of your games digitally like I do, a 12.5% discount before any other sales is awesome, so I bought the customer limit of 3 and am considering buying a few more under my dad's name, but I'll wait to see if they have any better deals between now and Saturday.
I also saw a 55" 4k Sony TV that comes with a PS4 Pro for $750. If any of you are interested in that, I could go find the video that said the retailer. I'm going to buy an Xbox Scorpio and a Nintendo Switch after they come out, I think both are scheduled for next year, so while that's tempting I really don't need another console.
If I'm being honest, I mostly posted this thread for the self-serving reason that I need a new TV (my projector bulb is at the end of its life and I'm due for an upgrade) so I'm looking for a 4k TV. If any of you see an especially good deal on one online, drop a link here.
Most of the cheaper 4k TVs aren't true HDR (High Dynamic Range) sets, and if you ask the experts having good HDR capabilities might be more important than the 4k portion of it even. It sounds like OLEDs provide a slightly better overall image quality than LED backlit LCDs, but it's a relatively new technology that has some downfalls, like it's easier to have a temporary "burn-in" image than an LCD supposedly and despite having deeper blacks can't be as bright as a backllit LED LCD. I don't typically like my screen ultra-bright, so the real concern with OLED for me is the price. Pretty much everything else (Smart, Curved, 3D) does not matter to me. I'm willing to pay a scooch more for a name brand like LG, Sony, Samsung, Sharp, or Toshiba, but would be willing to try others.
So, I guess what I'm looking for is a 55"-65" OLED or cheaper LED. I've got the room to go bigger if there's a better value for a larger screen, but I doubt that'll happen that way.
