  1. Black Friday 2017

    Factory. Slim oxford shirt. <$25 per TB is where the real magic is. Raw like this: https://www.bfads.net/Item/Best-Buy-Black-Friday-WD-Easystore-8TB-External-USB-30-Hard-Drive-Black/406267 https://www.bfads.net/Item/Staples-Black-Friday-Seagate-Backup-Plus-Hub-Desktop-Hard-Drive-8TB/406899 https://www.bfads.net/Item/Newegg-Black-Friday-Seagate-Backup-Plus-Hub-8TB-USB-30-Hard-Drives-STEL8000100/410785 These are also "fast" NAS drives similar to what you linked: https://www.bfads.net/Item/Newegg-Black-Friday-HGST-DeskStar-NAS-35in-4TB-7200-RPM-128MG-Cache-SATA-60Gbs-HighPerformance-Hard-Drive-4pk/410723

    So $30 per shirt or $30 for 3 shirts? Either way I have not been super satisfied with my CT shirts (baggy needs tailoring and creases super easily). I'm slowly migrating over to jcrew factory slim oxford which are also not perfect but are a small improvement for me overall. I will probably end up blow out the elbows on these too considering I have done that to like 4+ shirts over the last 3+ years from multiple brands.

    Hmmm. So it kind of functions like a long, low gravity jump.

    Based on rtings reviews (black friday special list) The Samsung MU8000 looks like a pretty decent option but it's kinda $$$. Sidenote: rtings filter looked like it was gone/removed but it's still around you just have to drill down to a specific test and then modify the table filters from there as desired: http://www.rtings.com/tv/tests/motion has just one column so easy to add more. $900 for this 55" is pretty good.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06WVH9T2D EDIT: Looks like BH has this for same price and no tax.... https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1320403-REG/samsung_un55mu8000fxza_mu8000_55_4k_hdr.html EDIT: And Dell: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/samsung-55-inch-4k-ultra-hd-smart-tv-un55mu8000f-uhd-tv/apd/a9662824/tv-home-theater?prg=1&VEN1=12578053-227502-27292e2d-88de-4d24-a167-ada0462ca056&AID=227502&dgc=CJ&DGSeg=DHS&c=us&s=dhs&cid=198375&lid=45846&acd=12309198375458460&VEN3=112204143242432782 This is just on sale everywhere?
  5. [Movie] Dune (Villeneuve edition)

    Yeah, I have not seen it in a long time but I agree. One special trivia point of pride for me is that I have the screener for this:

    Meh. This weeks was good but last week was still special to me. More creative.

    Sorry. This was bad wording on my part. The way I wrote it sounded like I was comparing it to black friday 2017 prices. Model XYZ on sale black friday 2016 for maybe $999 down from $1299. I think to myself that summer 2017 (6-7 months later) it will probably be down to $999, or maybe even less, just to move out old inventory. I feel that assumption was wrong. I occasionally checked prices on a few models and I did not see them dip back to their black friday 2016 prices at any time of the year even though they were definitely getting older.
  12. [TV] Mr. Robot

    Bumping an old thread but I should have done that already last week. I want to publicly make the statement that season 3 episode 4 is easily in the top 10 of my personal best TV episodes I have ever seen for multiple reasons; how it flows, how it looks, the unexpected turns, the acting, the references, etc. EDIT: For clarity I am referring to "eps3.4_runtime-err0r.r00", the 5th episode of the 3rd season. The "naming" for the episodes starts at 0 per malaphax's response below.
  13. [TV] Star Trek: Discovery

    Not really thrilled with that mid-season finisher. Felt weak. I'll probably continue watching mostly to enjoy the visuals but there is not much of the story that is interesting to me....
  14. Monitor Discussion

    My feeling is that its the manufacturer trying to cover their ass. "95% of models will do 120 just fine but 5% might not for wahtever reason so just tell them it's overclockable to 120 and don't guarantee it". Here is a quote from the tftcentral review: "This accounts for variations in systems as the overclock is not guaranteed and there is a chance of some flicker occurring in some cases according to the user manual. Performance may vary from one graphics card to another and from one system to another. We found that even the maximum 120Hz overclock produced a stable image, with no artefacts or flicker, and most importantly no frames being dropped in our tests which was great news."

    My eyeballs are about 9-10 feet from my current 47". I've tried to guesstimate that 55" is probably the largest I can go at that distance before it feels weird to me. That being said I might move my couch a bit farther away someday so 55" is probably going to be my sweet spot for the foreseeable future. However, like I mentioned, there is no pressing need right now simply because I don't spend enough time on my couch watching media to justify dropping that kind of money. No I'm not swimming in disposable income.... One thing is I feel like TV prices this year did not seem to drop much and BF last year was the cheapest some models ever got to.
