The Xbox store is having a pretty big sale this week.

I picked up Jedi: Fallen Order, Control, Doom Eternal, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

Is Black Friday even still really a thing? At least as far as surprise sales go?  Doesn't everyone pretty much have it all laid out - if not already available - by Nov 1st these days?

Yeah, it's like black all of November now. I got a 75" TCL TV from Best Buy last week. It's not a bad secondary TV for 500 bucks, but the Android TV interface is slow as shiat so I might have to grab a Roku or something for it.

Lol...No sarcasm, that was a fantastic stealth humble-brag.  I am seriously impressed.


A $500 television is a "humble-brag"?

Really?

Wow.

wait until that off brand tv from best buy or walmart goes tits up because the components used were one percent cheaper than standard quality and brands.

A brass worm gear, a brass worm gear, my kingdom for a brass worm gear.  shiat is engineered to fail within months of the warranty expiring.  A nylon worm gear on a steel rack lifting a 225 lb garage door, seriously?  A plastic idler pulley on a lawn mower spinning at 3,200 rpm?  Plastic screws and washers?  You save like what... a few cents a unit?  How much is your reputation worth?  I went through three dehumidifiers within 10 years and you have to pay extra to dispose of them, even though the coolant leaking out is probably the failure point.  I got sick of replacing them and bought a monster Aprilair unit with a 10-year warranty that was basically a 10-12,000 BTU air conditioner in a different cabinet.  It lasted for...10 years.

They make smaller, cheaper units.  This thing roared non-stop during the summer and I could hear it through the floor.  I had it next to the sump to handle the 12 gallons of water a day.   Mine had copper coils but that was 14 years ago.


Thank you!

You sound like a person with a poorly balanced garage door. I have an old 500# double-bay garage door. If I detach it from the lifter I can lift it with my fingers. The coils should almost perfectly counterbalance the weight of the door.

I expect that, that's why I didn't buy it as a primary TV, but the reviews I saw on it were decent enough.


FWIW I farking love my 65" TCL purchased in Sept 2019.  They are great TVs for the money and have most of the features of much more expensive ones.

I could use a new TV. But I'm unemployed, so no.

I am saving my allowance for a Christmas tree, since I have all the decorations.

Good luck, shoppers.

No...but "a 75" smart TV isn't bad for a secondary TV" kinda is.  It made me laugh, that's all.  That's bigger than any TV I've ever owned, primary or otherwise.

I picked up Jedi: Fallen Order, Control, Doom Eternal, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

I think every one of those is on gamepass

Now I think, Control isn't

Probably. I know Ori is.

But I prefer to buy rather than pay a monthly subscription fee.

Besides, depending on the game, I can get two to three months of playtime out of it.


Good thing... Game pass is on sale also 50% off I think for 3 months.

I've been doing the REI promoted "Opt Outside" on Black Friday. I get up early and go find a place to watch and photograph the sunrise.

Bob Falfa: I *hate* Black Friday.

That being said, I'll be looking for a deal on some kitchen knives, as outlined in this thread.


Whenever I'm allowed travel again I'm treating myself to something from Global. Probably the G17.

All of the good tach shiat is sold out already and additional amounts released for black friday will be impossible to get and only serve to allow retailers to claim the crown for offering the best deal.
