What Have You Bought?

Recommended Posts

Fuck @Daft (and my terrible willpower)

 

65" Sony XBR930D (XD93 U.K. Modelnumber.) and a Klipsch soundbar.

 

Now I shall go live off Ramen noodles in glourious 4k

 

 

 

 

 

Don't ever let someone try and convince you wall mounting a 65" TV by yourself is an easy task.

 

You're welcome. Ha

I'm sad though. I should've waited for OLED to become affordable like I tried telling myself I would. Gaming it performs just as well as my plasma, but Netflix the Blacks just aren't there in some things.

 

Oh well, it's just a fantastic picture.

I was pretty happy with my Samsung and this looks much better...which surprised me because I thought my Samsung was great. Netflix at 4K looks great, I thought. Stranger Things specifically.

 

I'm not sure how long it'll take OLED to become affordable at 55"+ sizes, I suspect longer than I'll have this TV for tbh.

Everything does look pretty great (Fury upscaled to 4K, fantastic). I'm just still dialing in settings and trying to get blacks that aren't grey still. (Bobs Burgers specifically washes out the blacks, other media is more accurate.) Like I said games definitely look great though.

 

Yeah, a larger size was a bigger shopping point to me. I sit far enough away that 50" was a hair too small for some text. So OLED was right out. I was sort of thinking of going with Samsung 4K, but somehow I just preferred the Sony model. I do enjoy that it has component inputs actually unlike the Samsung! My PS3 slim quit outputting through HDMI about 5 years ago so component is it for it.

Sharing my spares and whatnot with Marti. May do an unboxing on her channel ^_^

Get any spares of the Dragonite EX/Machamp BREAK/Full art trainers, hook a bro up.

 

On a side note though: unboxing videos: Urgh. :p

Of what? An unboxing video? Bitch pah-leeeese.

 

There'll be boxes of the stuff at our game store come pre-release events, if I'm gagging for one then I can invest. But I haven't bought a booster box of cards since... BreakThrough I think.

 

Just sold a shit ton of bulk cards as well.

A new electric toothbrush, had one before but switched back to manual, but decided why not go back.

 

Also a few pre-orders laid down:

Ended up blitzing through the first Sandman and loved it so bought the second one, blitzed through that and got the third. Not started that yet but looking forward to as it's a brilliant read. Picked up Y: The Last Man as I'd heard good things and like the first 2 Sandmans, I ate that up quickly and really enjoyed it.
