    bought this tv Wednesday and I’m very happy with the purchase. I would recommend picking up a fire stick for $25 because the tv’s navigation isn’t as user friendly as the fire stick and also the tv itself doesn’t support HBO streaming for some reason.

    I've made the jump from DSLR to mirrorless. Sony is killing the game right now and I love my setup (Sony a6400 and the Sigma primes lens trio). DSLRs are going to fade away sooner than later imo.

    Lost 3 TVs, a router and a security camera last summer. Pretty sure the lightning was in my driveway. Took out my neighbors cable boxes as well. Also all but one of the fried items were in surge protectors. Think it must have gotten the TV's and router via coax.

    Picked up a couple of ring doorbell (1s) for $55/)ea. 3 open box 6 qt Instant Pots for $33/ea, a 27" Monitor for $98 and 10 pairs of ladies underwear for $30.

    Couldn't find a Desktop PC deal that met my specs so no big purchases so far.

    Is the QLED Samsung worth the couple hundred dollar difference?

    I read and researched extensively (consumer reports account, wirecutter, etc...) before purchasing an LG OLED this week and I’m very satisfied with the purchase. I have two Samsung tv’s (neither as high end as the QLED) and imo the LG OLED is superior. I think the QLED is a suped up/ rebranding of old technology where as the OLED is an entirely new technology.

    Yep lost a lot of the functionality on my first flatscreen (42” plasma) and AV receiver quite a few years back and have been really careful about it since. My mistake on that setup was I didn’t have cable running through surge protector. Haven’t ever tried to cash in on guarantees on surge protectors but that is plan/Hope for next event...

    I got my wife the Canon T6 bundle w/ the 75-300 lens for $399 down from 749 on door buster at target. If she sticks with it I’ll check out mirrorless. Can’t beat that to get started.

    It’s my understanding that mirrorless has traditionally been a step down from a DSLR, even if they’re competitive now.

    the most expensive (and long lasting) part of photography is buying glass so make sure whatever camera bodies you get will accept the same lenses.

    I've switched over from Harmony to Caavo and really like it. It's dropped to 60ish bucks at various places. Only downside is a subscription fee that costs a couple bucks a month.

    Yeah, I feel deceived because their Black Friday promo code said the 30% was thru today. The details say they won't price adjust but I ordered late yesterday so I submitted a request anyway

    15-45mm lens is only good for wide shots really. probably best to get the option with two lenses. 55mm focal length is generally considered to be equivalent to the perspective of the human eye.

    I went into my settings and turned off the tracking. You don't even realize that you approved them to track you. You get a new TV and just click accepts a hundred times so you can use it.

    It's called ACR. This link tells you how to disable it. It's super easy on Vizio: https://www.consumerreports.org/privacy/how-to-turn-off-smart-tv-snooping-features/

    Mounted the Sharp tv I got. First cheap TV I've purchased. Picture looks perfectly fine but you can really tell how cheaply they're made. The casing is thin crappy plastic that feels like it may break at any second.

    switching out the 50" Samsung for the 65" TCL on the hydraulic arm that's mounted over my fireplace, with only my 5'4" wife's help is something that deserves to go on my professional resume.

    I did the same but in the bedroom. Had to recruit my wife's help to attach the tv while I held it up. She's surprisingly handy. She installed a new light fixture while I was out of town all by herself.

    This would 100% result in a screwdriver being stabbed into my eye, intentionally by my wife, if we attempted this as a couple, due to my inevitable attempts to coach her through “how it needs to be done”

    Usually can’t go wrong with Logitech. My MBP doesn’t have USB so yeah that tended to limit my options as well.

    Big fan of this one. It’s been my work mouse for 4+ years. Direct pair via Bluetooth. It’s a little small, but comfortable for me, even with big hands.
