Title: The deals thread
Post by: jewishcarpenter on November 13, 2007, 07:41:21 AM
I noticed that every once and awhile there's a thread that someone posts a deal so I figured maybe deals deserve their own thread. I'll post them in here and try and find  an expiration date when possible.

For those that do not have it yet and want their own copy for Rifftrax.

The local Walmart is selling this package
http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Television-Favorites-Without-Rudolphs/dp/B000S0PLG0/ref=sr_1_11/102-0742375-4587340?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1194975532&sr=1-11
full of great Christmas specials for $15.

The "and more" includes none other then Nestor, and the Christmas specials on the box all pretty much rock. Makes me wish I didn't already have my copy of Nestor. :^)

Wow. If you're a video gamer and have yet to enter the current generation of consoles, here's your chance.

First a deal for the PS3 at Walmart on Saturday the 24th:
Quote
On 11/24 at 8:00am (running through 11:59pm on 11/25), the 80GB PS3 ($499) will come with 10 FREE Blu-ray movies instantly. You choose any 10 BD titles under $30 within the store and they will override the prices to zero. For those stores that carry BD already, additional titles are being sent in for the sale. For those that do not have BD in their store (a small minority) product will be sent to each store specifically for this sale.

Oh, and you still get your 5 FREE movies by mail. (Which take quite a while to ship, BTW.)

And for the Xbox 360:
Quote
Original Xbox console users: Buy an Xbox 360. Migrate your paid Xbox LIVE subscription (for the original Xbox console) to Xbox LIVE Gold.
As a current paid Xbox LIVE member using an original Xbox console (not Xbox 360), you're more than ready for Halo 3, and here's a great reason to step up. Buy your Xbox 360 between November 21 and December 21, 2007, move your existing paid Xbox LIVE account to an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription and then register on this site, and we will send you a copy of Halo 3*. Finish the fight in high definition, with new weapons and challenges. Details over here. (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/h/halo3/promotions/buyxboxgethalo.htm?WText.camp=Games&WText.campSrc=RSS)

To translate: if you have an old Xbox and an old Xbox Live account, and then buy a 360 and upgrade to a XBL Gold account, (and then leap through a hoop or two), Microsoft will send you a copy of Halo 3. Now, I don't think there are many people who this will apply to, but just in case...

Your best case scenario, BTW is this: Buy one of the 360 packs with Marvel Ult Alliance and Forza packed in next Friday, when a certain retail store will be giving away a copy of Guitar Hero II with every 360 purchased and then qualify for the copy of Halo 3.

Where are you seeing the 2-disc version for less than that? All the Black Friday stuff I've seen seems to only feature the one-disc version.

The usual suspects seem to all be selling the 2 disc version. BB has it as a door buster. Target shows the 2 disc cover in their ad and CC shows it on what seems to be their wrap around for their main ad. (The two disc has the helmet cover while the one disc has the shirtless Scotsman.)

And Amazon starts the whole HD-DVD player thing again.

Over here for details. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_5902742_1?ie=UTF8&docId=1000167901&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=hero-quick-promo&pf_rd_r=07GX0XE1RH7HWJ08YY6S&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=330753901&pf_rd_i=B000U62N1S)

Buy the Toshiba HD-A3 HD-DVD player for $199 (or the HD-A30 or HD-AD35 for more)  and get *10* free HD-DVDs. You get 5 by mail (eventually), 2 in the box (300 and Bourne Identity- both Rifftraxs) and three more from a list on the page. (23 titles given as an option.) It's a pretty good deal, if you don't mind waiting for the five bonus discs to eventually arrive.
Title: Re: The deals thread
Post by: SmilinJackRoss on November 19, 2007, 09:23:54 AM
When I bought my HD-DVD player I got 3 free HD-DVDs, and they took about 3 months to arrive.  Talking with a few other people on a different message board, they had about the same turnaround time.  Just FYI.
Title: Re: The deals thread
Post by: Compound on November 19, 2007, 11:22:33 AM
The discs from the last HD-DVD deal are running about 14-16 weeks right now.  And the free Blu Rays are running almost as long.

Isnt that a game where you roll around a big ball of junk collecting shit through a house or something like that?  Im not really into Japanese stuff, other than Katana swords.  By the way, this thread was an awesome Idea.

Yep. According to Play-Asia, Beautiful Katamari works on the NTSC-US Box, doesn't work on the PAL box and is unsure if it works on the Japanese box.

And... the HD-DVD Player deals are back.

On Friday at 8:00 AM, head over to Walmart and buy a Toshiba HD-DVD player and get 12 free HD-DVDs,  5 in store, 2 in the box, and 5 by mail in rebate. It's the A3 model, it's $298 and for some inexplicable reason, Walmart is advertising this by showing HD copies of "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" in the ad. Ick.

Amazon also has these Toshiba players on sale:
HD-A3 (max 1080i) - $255.02 (Price may fluxuate)
HD-A30 (max 1080p) - $289.98 (Price may fluxuate)
HD-A35 (max 1080p) - $369.98 (Price May fluxuate)

With a 10 free HD-DVD offer (3 on site, 2 in box, 5 by mail.)

And in Blu Ray land, Sony is once again offering a $100 discount on the PS3 if you buy it using your Sony Credit card. Of course, they'll make that $100 back in interest....

Oooh.  For those of you who enjoy the animated DC stuff, this one's for you.

The next animated DC release is "The New Frontier", based on Darwyn Cooke's limited series of the same name. Set in the 1950s and 60s, this mini-series explores the origins of the Justice League. The voice cast includes David Boreanaz, Brooke Shields, Lucy Lawless, Neil Patrick Harris, Miguel Ferrer, Kyra Sedgwick, Jeremy Sisto and Kyle MacLachlan.

Now, here's the deal part: Amazon currently has the preorder price for both the Blu-Ray and HD-DVD versions of the discs at $19.99, which is about what the 2 disc standard DVD version will be selling for in stores. Granted, Amazon will charge you shipping, unless you're a Prime member or toss in $5 more of stuff, but this is a great price for a new release high def disc.

Hey! Are you a Big Head Todd and the Monsters fan?

Big Head Todd.

Yeah, that band from the 90s.

Yes, they're still around.

Yeah, "Bittersweet" was one of their's.

No, Todd wasn't killed in Vietnam. Where the hell did you get that idea? Geez.

Look, if you are a fan, head over to www.bigheadtodd.com and sign up for their e-mail newsletter. Why? Because they'll be offering a free download of their new CD to the folks on the e-mail list, that's why. They'll be mailing copies of the CD to folks in Denver, San Diego, Austin and KC as well, but since most folks on the boards don't live there, the download is probably the better way to go.

They are.  Apparently you have to buy the DVDs with the original versions seperately - and always did unless you went to Best Buy.

Unless you want to pay $100 (http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Trilogy-Collectible-Widescreen/dp/B000IJ6QTC/ref=sr_1_33?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1197762470&sr=1-33).

I have one of those.  It's no big deal...and a bit flimsy, actually.

Alas, already gone.

But two reasons not to fret:

1) That price is not too terribly uncommon for that set. If it's not available somewhere for that price now, it will be.

2) Some of the reviews I've seen for this set indicate that it suffers from excessive color wheel noise (a problem not shared by its more expensive 73" counterpart).

Bear in mind that for the coax digital inputs (which this one appears to have), an RCA video cable will work just fine. Try it when you get the chance.

Pre-order Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii on walmart site $19.82. (http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=6527131) Get it now, because I'm sure this is a screw up! There is a possibility of them canceling all orders for this price but it's worth trying to get rather than pay $50 for it when it comes out. They fixed the price, back to $49.82.

Did you print out anything when the website had the first price?  If so, I'd go to whichever of your local TV news broadcasts has a Consumer Affairs segment and bring that to them.  After the post-Xmas Gift Card screw-up, getting this exposed to the public would be great.

I'm actually pretty happy with the Pioneer but at the sametime THAT deal is looong gone and this is your next best bet if you didn't buy the pioneer system (listed earlier in this thread). I think I prefer the design of the Sony package over the Pioneer ... but I can't really justify purchasing a 2nd set of speakers when I still need other pieces to my home theater.

I figured there might be some sort of catch. I just wasn't willing to register on their site to find out. Sorry if i got your hopes up or wasted your time. How many discs did you have picked out for $15 worth of shipping?

EDITED for spelling errors because this wireless keyboard blows oh so many goats.

If you'd like an alternate way to get those HD-DVDs, try this.

Head over to ebay and hit their ebay store (http://stores.ebay.com/iNetVideo-com). The discs there have a $7.99 Buy it now price, but shipping is $4.95 for the first disc and two bucks more per extra disc.  Depending on the number of discs ordered, it may save you money. Or be daring and bid on the auctions and try to get it lower than $7.99.

I would get the Die Hard Blu Ray but even 14.25 per BR is pretty expensive for movies that are old or incomplete (theatrical DH4) ... even with that said, it was still pretty tempting, if the box set looked cooler I'd of probably pulled the trigger, but it looks cheap from the pictures on Amazon. The Box set doesn't seem to include a box and its in one of those cheesy double wide cases wherein I'd expect to find something like a '100 Classic Horror' style 'box set'.

And I actually bought the first Die Hard on Blu Ray already, and the video transfer is pretty underwhelming.  Based on reviews I've read, the other three films get progressively better in A/V quality, but the first flick isn't much of a step up from the standard DVD.

Are you in the market for a PS3? Well, personally I'd wait until the 80 gig version returns in a few weeks, but if you're okay with the 40 gig model, then we've got a deal.

From now to the 7th, Walmart and Best Buy are offering a $100 gift card with the purchase of a PS3. Take a look at it online (http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10039674). Walmart started the deal, but Best Buy will match it, and here's the catch, only if you ask. I'd head to customer service, if you take that route, mention the Walmart deal, mention value package SKU (prompts cashier to create $100 gift card) 6867688. They'll probably check to see if a local Walmart has them, and if they don't you may be out of luck.
But it's $100 of free stuff, so if you were about to buy a PS3 anyway...

BTW: Walmart is expected to continue the deal with the 80 gig models that will be released next week.

Ack.

Are you a original series Star Trek fan? Want a copy of the remastered HD-DVD/DVD set? Two options:

1) With DD's 20% off sale, it's $64.13.

or

2) Go to amazon.ca (http://www.amazon.ca/Star-Trek-Original-Season-Standard/dp/B000VDDDY6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1212673383&sr=8-1) (the Canadian version of Amazon), where the price is $49.99 CDN, which works out to be about $49 US. International shipping is another $10, and your bank will likely add on a buck or two for the privilege of converting your moola, so about $60. It'll be cheaper for Canucks, naturally.

(Also the Amazon.ca Version might be in the canadian packaging, so if the French language on the packaging annoys you...)

These are the DVD versions of the upgraded ST:TOS series (with more current SFX  and some minor upgrades to the sound) currently running in syndication. If you've got the older DVDs and are comfortable with the old effects, then the old sets are fine. If you skipped that release and kinda like the rerelease, then these are what will you you that experience. Personally, I'd expect a Blu release at some point as Paramount remastered these episodes in high def.

The last 80 gig model had backwards compatability through software, so people are expecting this one to have it as well. If it doesn't... well, you'll hear the squawking all across the net.

As far as the 40gb PS3... I love it. The thing is whisper quiet when playing Blu-Rays, and makes me regret owning my 20 or so HD-DVDs (considering how monstrously loud my 360 is). I will say that the Six Axis controller is a step backwards from the PS2 controller so I can't imagine anyone actually preferring to play PS2 games on their PS3. Also I'd rather save the ware and tear on my PS3 by playing the last gen games on PS2 regardless (by the time my PS2 does die, I'm unlikely to care much about it ... hell anyone want a free Playstation 1? If you pay for shipping I'll send you the system and controllers (wont give you the cords though).

Anyway, went on a Walmart shopping spree with my 100.00 gift card, picked up Wii Play (50.00), Wii Nunchuck (20.00), Wii Zapper (20.00), and Virtual Fighter 5-PS3 (20.00)

Also grabbed this in the Deep Discount sale ... just 1 movie for now, might have to use restraint considering all these purchases ;)

So...I respond to the e-mail with a copy of this above...asking WTF?

Get no answer.

So, Xanadu is on backorder already  :o and hasn't shipped.   So, I place another order for it - get the discount and e-mail them telling them to cancel the first one and why....

And that I'm not happy.

If this is what I had to do all along to get the discount on that title, fine....but don't BS me.

They might filter HTML mail. Lots of businesses do.
I didn't send them the pic....I sent them the link to the jpg.  And I named some of the places I'd seen it other than here....like Photobucket.

So the continuing saga....

I last placed a second order with the Xanadu disc asking them to cancel the first one because it showed on backorder.

Well, I get an e-mail very late Friday (after 6:30 when I leave work) that I just saw today saying....

Quote
We are sorry to inform you that, your order for the item DVD : XANADU-MAGIC MUSIC EDITI  is on the process of shipping & items are shipped via USPS Media Mail, which normally takes 5-10 business days to arrive.

Hence, we are unable to cancel the order. However, if you choose not to receive the order please Refuse Delivery or write Return to Sender on the package and return the order. Upon receipt of the returned merchandise we will arrange for a refund towards your account. Please note that shipping and handling charges are non refundable.

It was on backorder until my e-mail arrived and then magically they found one to send.   Which would be just fine....I could have it returned like they say....except that it's shipping with another disc that I ordered at the same time that had been in stock all along but they didn't ship until now.  I return one I have to return the other.

So, I've e-mailed them back pointing out that to refuse it means refusing a disc that I do want....and that I notice that there was no mention of my being told originally that the sale hadn't been extended in error.   So, they should now cancel the copy of Xanadu from the last order (amazingly that one shows the movie on backorder again) and that if they can't see their way clear to refunding me the 20% off I would have been getting if the first person I contacted had known what they were doing then I'm through with them.

(and I mentioned that I'm documenting all of this here on this site   ;)  )
Title: Re: The deals thread
Post by: Plastic Self-Cleaning Duck on June 30, 2008, 08:50:59 AM
The drama continues.....

So, I check the e-mail this morning and there's now a response to my original e-mail (the one questioning why they told me the sale wasn't extended when it was) saying that they've adjusted the price of the first copy of Xanadu I ordered....

But there's no response to my e-mail sent yesterday about cancelling the second copy so I check my account and it's still there pending.

Figure it's time to finally try the 800 number.  Some of you are probably wondering why I didn't do this all along...besides the fact that I work in a warehouse where it's hard to hear sometimes I have zero privacy.   But wait for this...

Get a nice young lady on the phone and ask her to cancel the title from my order and I'm told that because one of the other DVDs on my order is in the process of being shipped, she can't cancel this title even though it has nothing to do with that shipment....

WTF?!?!?!?!?!?

So I get to call back (or hope the e-mail I sent yesterday does the trick).  Although she said she'd try to check on it later.....  So calling did a lot of good.

And I thought our computer system here sucked!!!

They shipped the second one...

When I called today I was told that it was sent in the same package as my copy of "Addams Family Season 3" but the e-mail I got saying that shipped said it's coming alone. 

But in the meantime, they sent me a postage paid label to send one of them back so....

Just for future reference, anytime you try and cancel an order. Doesn't matter if it's on backorder, they'll say it's in the process of being shipped. I already learned that lesson from deepdiscount.

You get Half Life 2, Half Life 2 Episode 1 & 2, Team Fortress (online multiplayer first person shooter), & Portal a short fun puzzle game with twisted dark humor. Now that the new patch is out for the PS3 Team Fortress should be a lot more enjoyable and unlike the 360, free to play on the internet without having to shell out a bunch of cash like you need to do for XBox Live Gold memberships.

Psst. Hey. Are you one of those folks who bought an HD-DVD player? Well, good news. The online places are still clearing out their stuff.  Of particular note:

Inet (a Canadian place) has about 40 titles (http://www.inetvideo.com/HD%20DVDs/Recently%20Added) on sale through the end of Wednesday. One that isn't shown, but can be found with a manual search is Season 1 of Battlestar Galactica (http://www.inetvideo.com/Items/n01-0114733?sck=7057016&caSKU=n01-0114733&caTitle=Battlestar%20Galactica%20-%20Season%20One%20(HD%20DVD)%20(Boxset)%20(DVD%20NEW)) for $19.99. That's a hell of a price, even for the regular DVD set.  Plus, it's the season that almost everyone says is good, unlike later ones... Shipping is free for orders over $50, and $10 or so under that.

And over at Deepdicount, most titles are running between $8 and $12, with quite a few titles still around.

Hey, here's a deal;

I upgraded the RAM in my MacBook to 2GB, and I'm never going to get around to selling off the 1GB I had to pull out of my MacBook to do the upgrade. And even if I did, I'd hardly get anything for it. So you know what? I'm just going to give it away to anyone here who might need it. Maybe one of you is a poor college student or something that's strapped for cash and could use the upgrade.

It's 1GB (two 512MB modules) of DDR2-667, PC2-5300 SO-DIMMs. Like I said, they came from a MacBook, but they'll work in a lot of laptop models made in the last couple of years. There are RAM-seller websites which'll tell you if this is the right RAM for your machine.

Honest injun, no strings attached, no foolin' - if you need it, send me a private message and I'll put it in an envelope and send it out Monday.

Really though, the shipping is the same length it's the HANDLING that takes longer.  Especially with Amazon.  It's not any cheaper for them to mail things at the cheap, slow rate since they mail in bulk, but it is cheaper if they can put off mailing them until they have employees with less work to do.

I've been keeping an eye on Amazon because last year they had a great sale on horror films around Halloween, and i missed out. Unfortunately, this one doesn't really seem so great. There are only a few decent films on that list, and even with the special they still seem kinda' overpriced... for a sale, that is.

Hopefully they've got something else up their sleeve come the end of the month.

Alfred Hitchcock - The Masterpiece Collection  (http://www.amazon.com/Alfred-Hitchcock-Masterpiece-Collection-Saboteur/dp/B000A1INJE/pf_rd_p=441937901)- $50.99, which is 58% off MSRP.

This set includes:
Psycho / Vertigo / Rear Window / The Birds / Shadow of a Doubt / Family Plot / Frenzy / The Man Who Knew Too Much / Marnie / Rope / Saboteur / Topaz / Torn Curtain / The Trouble with Harry

These aren't the latest release of some of these movies (Psycho and Vertigo, for example, have newer editions out today) but it's a great bargain if you're a Hitchcock fan.

Don't know what NTFS, I never actually tried putting something that large on an 8gb.

Another use for a 8 gb would be to store the entire Rifftrax catalog on it. Presuming they eventually get up to 8 gb. Would a 4 gb work for that?

Don't have access to see how large my Rifftrax folder is so I'm not entirely sure.. NTFS is the file system for XP you can store a file larger than 2GB on NTFS, otherwise it would be a FAT32 file system or just FAT in which case the cap is 2GB and won't store a file larger than that.

Over at Amazon, we have:

- Samsung BD-P1500 1080p Blu-ray player (http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-BD-P1500-1080p-Blu-ray-Player/dp/B0014H16V0/) for $223 (reg. price $299.99 at BestBuy.com)

But wait! Buy that and you can get this:

- The Ultimate Matrix Blu-ray Collection (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000OPPBEQ/)
for free (reg. price $74.99 at BestBuy.com)

Just add'em both to your cart and the deal will be applied at checkout.

Not a bad deal, and the reviews on the Ultimate Matrix Set have been very positive, even when the reviewers didn't like the actual movies therein.

Let's see...

Toys 'r' us is doing their annual "Buy 2, get one Free" video game sale through Saturday, so that might be an option if you need to pick something else up too. The titles will be fairly picked through though at this point.

Circuit City is giving a $10 gift card with purchase. Available at 2:00 PM on the 15th.

EB/Gamestop is offering this:
Quote
Reserve Dead Space and receive the Exclusive Level Scorpion Rig the strongest in the game. It offers increased toughness and inventory slots above what lower level suits provide. Hold off the Necromorph onslaught for longer, and hold more items and weapons. While supplies last.
Online / In-store Pickup Customers: Codes to unlock the Scorpion Rig will be emailed to you. Please provide a valid email address during checkout.

Codes will be emailed approximately one week prior to launch date.

Online only on that. I'd order it tonight if you want to go that route.

And that's about it.

Gamestop Buy 2 get 1 Free! -- only one day left.


I went down to Game Stop yesterday to check out what they had for PS3 games.  Sadly, it was a little picked over.  I didn't want to buy another FPS because I have Bioshock coming in the mail already, so I passed on all the Medal of Honor, Resistence, Call of Duty, Rainbow 6, etc.  I dont play sports games either, so I passed on those.  I've been meaning to pick up Ratchet & Clank and The Bourne Conspiracy, but they had a $50 pricetag on those, so I put them down.  They had Condemned 2 for $18, so that was one of the three possibilities, but I couldn't find another two games that I wanted (for decent prices), so I walked out empty handed.

I should be fine though, I ordered Saint's Row 2 and Bioshock last week.  Those should arrive in the next day or two, so I'll have my hands full soon enough.

The deal was great for accessories and last gen games. I agree about the limited PS3 selection. What they had was overpriced, you'd be much better off going to a pawn shop or using the internet. Not to mention most of us are still coming off the recent Toys R Us B2G1.

Wait. Black Friday will have deals, and there will be tons of deals as we approach Xmas.  My wife and I were sort of lamenting that we bought ours so early this year instead of waiting for Xmas specials.

Seconded. Although keep an eye out. A number of retailers, like Walmart, are launching pre-black Friday sales in an effort to get a bigger share of the pie. For example, Walmart has a special going on today with a 46" Toshiba LCD for $1158 and a 32" for $498 (Which may or may not be a good deal. I'm still using my old 20" so I'm completely out of the big screen loop.) Amazon will likely be doing the same as well, and everytime I log into Dell, they're advertising a big screen.  Just keep an eye out. The best sales may hit before BF.

(And I've already seen the Sears BF ad pop up, so it has begun.)

Damn I almost missed that deal, thanks for pointing that out. I've got $0.98 to spare, I'll just have to fight the urge to snap into a Slim Jim a couple of times. Purchased.

EDIT: As a bonus I had already purchased the original Day of Defeat which uses quite a bit of the content of Half-Life so I already had the game loaded onto my computer when I bought it.

Also, the PS2 has finally dropped to a 50 dollar used price (thank god, maybe now those idiots can finally shutup about their ps3 backwards compatibility nonsense). And finally its a great time to trade in games, bring in 5 or more and get an additional 30 percent for them.

The list of movies to pick from is pretty lame, except they have 6 James Bond movies on there.  So if you love Bond, you can get 6 blu-rays for ~$50.

I've heard personal failures/Horror stories with Plasma TV's.. I Won't own a Plasma, Ever..

Title: Re: The deals thread
Post by: Chaos on December 01, 2008, 08:12:59 AM
Plasma uses less energy than LCD, because the gases do part of the work on their own, whereas the operation of an LCD is purely electric. You also get a brighter image at a larger range of angles, and can apparently view the TV without much loss of clarity even in direct sunlight (something that I am told LCD does not handle very well).

The burning issue has been largely fixed, so mostly it is just a matter of making sure the model you choose doesn't have an overly loud fan. Another former problem of Plasma TVs that isn't listed in that article is recycling... because of the gases they contain, you have to recycle them just like energy efficient light bulbs, and if the screen is shattered and the material inside escapes, you have to clean it up properly. But since the laws have been changed over the past couple of years, LCD screens now have to be recycled as well, so that is no longer a "disadvantage" of plasma.

If I ever do get an HDTV, if the prices ever become reasonable (by my definition), I'll be getting a plasma. I'm just not fond of the problems inherent in LCD (and I do know about LCD from personal experience, as my computer monitor is LCD - if I stand up, I can no longer see the screen image pretty much at all).

Plasma uses less energy than LCD, because the gases do part of the work on their own, whereas the operation of an LCD is purely electric.

Not so.  Plasmas on average consume far more power than LCDs to achieve the same brightness., as ionizing gas into plasma takes more energy than simply powering a fluorescent backlight.  You also have more options with LCD for adjusting the power consumption yourself, as you can dim the backlight to suit environment or taste.

In real world tests, the plasma will sometimes use slightly less power for movies that have a lot of dark scenes, because the LCD consumes a static amount of power to run the backlight, while the plasma's power consumption is tied to the brightness of the image.  For most other, brighter content, LCD blows plasma out of the water.

I'm just not fond of the problems inherent in LCD (and I do know about LCD from personal experience, as my computer monitor is LCD - if I stand up, I can no longer see the screen image pretty much at all).

They're making great progress on that front.  We bought a 46" Samsung LCD earlier this year, and there's very little loss of color or clarity even at fairly extreme angles.  We're very happy with it.  I thought the lack of a "true black" would bother me, but it turned out to be a non-issue.

Burn-in is still a problem with plasmas -- at least, it was back in February when we were buying, but may have changed by now.  Unlike in the past, the "burnt-in" images will now fade after a few days.  But it still occurs, which is a problem if you spend lots of time on channels that display static screen elements, or have kids who like to pause the DVR and leave it on the same frame for hours at a time.

LCDs also last longer than plasmas, and tend to be lighter, though that's usually an issue only once or twice over the lifetime of the set.

fixed ;) great find though JC, makes me happy I didn't buy the 720p refurb set I was looking at over at Newegg. (415 + 50 shipping killed the deal for me). Personally I think tax kills the Best Buy deal, but it really is just a waiting game at this point. Patience will get me my 42 in the coming months... January / February. Hopefully patience gets me a more prestigious brand as well

Yeah, because what people really need these days is to be inextricably tied to three feet of cord while they try to rock out. Next gen consoles went wireless for a reason. They should pay YOU to take that old wired shit off their hands and clear out warehouse space. :P

Well, I wouldn't pay any money at all for a stupid plastic Mattel toy anyway, so it's sort of a moot point in my case. But in general, my feeling is that if you even NEED a custom piece of hardware to play a game in the first place, it better damn well be wireless. And frankly, with how cheap it is to produce wireless chips these days, it should technically be costing the manufacturers MORE to be including a wire because of the amount of materials it requires... therefore they shouldn't be making wired ANYTHING anymore.

The system has the capacity. USE IT.

Well, I think the overall point is that if it's stupid to play it with the standard controller, it's probably stupid to play it, period. Pushing buttons in time with an image on the screen... that's not a game, it's a test they use to verify nerve deterioration in Huntingtons patients. :P

Well if it says processing I'd imagine there's a good chance they'll shipping it today.

I think that's what's behind all the digital TV converter boxes being sold out.  They're getting the coupons from the goverment with friends and famly and buying $40 boxes for $10 and figure they'll be selling them for $40 after the change over forgetting that....

Season 2 is really great but 1 isn't in the same league, except for the Patrick Stewart episode.

Yeah, they're all way more SyFy than Sci-Fi.
Seriously......I've wondered about Quest For Fire ever since that year at Omnicon in Fort Lauderdale where the studio promotions guy from Fox showed up with buttons and other stuff for Shock Treatment and Quest For Fire - and the stuff for the latter had the slogan "The Future Started 10,000 Years Ago".

Figured that was just to cash in on the current interest in sci-fi but didn't think it would go on this long.  Maybe its because Ron Perlman is in it.

I'm curious.....

I don't watch "24" but there's a radio show here in Miami where Dave Barry calls in the next morning after to review the show....and they talk about how good or bad or ridiculous (some woman this season just had to climb out of a river, ect and her hair and make-up is all perfect but they have a band-aid on her neck....that's the only sign that she's just been through hell).

Does "24" have any real re-watch value?  Once you know how everything shakes out and you know who the mole is....other than looking back for hints you might have missed....is it still entertaining?

Well, I mean watching a show for the first time and then watching it later, you will never be able to replicate that feeling you had on the first viewing. But 24 does have some replay ability. Especially if you haven't seen the seasons since they aired, like I have. It's not really like a sitcom where you can watch it over and over and over again. But it is good for some rewatching.

Say, are you like me and have a bunch of HD-DVDs that you bought for bargain prices? Well, Warner Brothers wants you to exchange those discs for Blu-Rays. And it's relatively cheap.

Here's the site:

For each disc you exchange, you pay $4.95, plus S/H. (About $6.95 per order, it seems.)

And to make it  a more attractive deal: You only send them the cover art sleeve for the movie. You get to keep the HD-DVDs themselves. (And the spiffy red cases.) This is, of course, only good for titles that Warner themselves put out.  Also note, some titles haven't been released on Blu-Ray yet either, so they can't be traded in.

Not a bad deal though if you've got an HD-DVD and a Blu-Ray.

Amazon's Gold Box deal today is Joss Whedon's "Angel" the complete series (seasons 1-5) for $56.99.  I've never watched the show, but I know there's some Whedon fans around here, so I thought I'd give the heads up.

The Free Redbox codes are being phased out...

Dear redbox customer,

The word is out that you can take home new release DVDs for only a $1 per night from the big red box. We know you know, because you've saved that dollar as part of redbox' Free Movie Mondays promotion, which is ending after May 11.

However, since so many of us could use an extra buck these days, redbox is going to keep the free flicks coming once a month throughout the summer. Beginning June 1, redbox will send a free movie code to your phone on the first Monday of the month as a thank you for using redbox.

So start thinking about what you are going to do with those 3 extra dollars this summer pool noodle... 6 piece McNuggets and honey... 64 oz cherry icie... And we'll keep thinking up new ways to delight you Hollywood's newest releases, online reservations, movie reviews, witty remarks... seriously, it's endless.

Pretty sweet deal! Kinda sad, but in this economy I don't have a $50 DVD budget anymore. Hopefully I can work it in before the 16th... I need the Volume 2 Shorts DVD...  at 5 dollars a piece I'd love to have the collection, guessing they'd just get borrowed out to friends... watched the legend releases pretty heavily, so not too much incentive to purchase at full price.

Not really. The WSJ article noted that most hardbacks get sold to publishers for about 50% of the cover price and both Walmart and Amazon are losing 7 or 8 bucks per copy sold. So, if you buy them buy it from the company that you dislike the most.

If i need something at Walmart, the preferred method is go in and out as fast as possible... whereas I consistently waste hours trying to get my stupid Amazon cart up to 25 dollar free shipping... but in the end its worth it. Usually the items are random and unrelated, but its fun shopping at Amazon, Walmart not so much.

Oh, I know of "loss leaders".  And they work.   But those are usually things sold at cost.

Just wish there was a way to make Wal Mart "negative sell" themselves out of existence.  Other companies (Costco, for instance) can sell cheap and still not practice "scorched earth" everywhere they go.

I used to be a vendor and there's this supermarket in town here that used pop as a loss leader once and went in the hole in the thousands of dollars on it, so I don't think loss leaders are always just at cost.  Frito-Lay used to sell Walmart chips below cost so that they could try to make a profit off dips and other side items they sell around the Super Bowl and other holidays.

Well...can't believe I'm using a MST3K short for an example....you look at the ones "Out of this World" and "The Selling Wizard".

Makes sense to sell things that has low mark up and short shelf life if you can get people to buy stuff with higher mark up to go with it (toppings with ice cream or hamburger with buns).

And the chips thing make sense too.  Frito-Lay and Pepsi are the same company.  They want people to get thirsty.  It's why they give you free pretzels and salty stuff in bars....

Movie Gallery to close all U.S. stores: (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6412SR20100502)

Quote
(Reuters) - Movie Gallery Inc., which filed for bankruptcy in February with plans to close hundreds of stores, will now shut down the balance of its 2,415 stores, according to the Wall Street Journal.

U.S.

Citing people familiar with the matter, the Journal said that the company, which operates the Hollywood Video chain, will liquidate all of its stores over the next couple of months.

The company employed about 19,100 people when it filed for bankruptcy. According to the online edition of the newspaper, Movie Gallery notified employees on Friday of the added closures.

It is the second largest movie rental chain behind Blockbuster. This is the second bankruptcy filing for the company.

Movie Gallery was not available for comment.

The remaining stores will be closing over the next 8 weeks. Sigh. Stop closing, stores!

Got all of my blu-rays with no problems from hollywood several weeks ago. Guess I was one of the lucky ones on that deal. There have been numerous complaints, the most common being sending the wrong orders to people.

I'd go back and check for you but my college .edu email doesn't work anymore. Haha $25,000 dollars for an education and they cant even let me keep my old email address that I was too lazy to roll over to another site?! Fuck it, email is as dead as the post office anyway :P

Sorry though Imrahil... if memory serves I got a confirmation, not really positive though.

(Posted this in the "DVD Sale" thread but figured I'd beter put it here too just in case some of you don't check that one right away - since the prices don't start until Tuesday)

Today only (May 9), Amazon has "The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.: The Complete Series" on sale for $32.99.  It's usually $99.98

They also have the complete series of 'Witchblade" for $22.99.

And the complete "Full House" for $55.99....(I will make no comment ;)).

Over at Amazon, the album Happy Defiance Day, Everyone! by Ted Nugent is a whopping $0.76 to download. That's a 30 song album for a little more than 2 cents a song.

Okay, I'm not a big Nugent fan either, but it's a great deal for less than the cost to download 1 song.

Oh, and the soundtrack to Dirty Dancing is $5 to download this month. I'm certain that certain folks on this site will be pleased.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 12 DVD Package with Limited Edition Figurine
$69.99  * + $5 shipping

That's Volume XVI, XVII & XVIII (which gets released next Tuesday). Since the cheapest price right now for Vol XVIII is $40, this is pretty close to "Buy 2 sets, set one free." Plus you get the Servo figure. I know many of us own the prior two volumes, but if you don't this is a great way to pick them up.

Just a heads up- Amazon usually offers 100 MP3 albums for $5 each every month. But through the month of August, they're doing 1000 CD instead. If you have any interest in music at all, there's probably something in there that you'll like, whether it's the soundtrack to The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, Dr. Demento's Hits from Outer Space, a couple of videogame soundtracks or one of the three volumes of greatest bits from Crank Yankers.

Good plan, don't let anyone talk you out of at least checking this one out.  It's one of those shows that you either love or you "meh".  For me the only downside of the series is that it didn't last long enough, and I would have preferred for the ongoing plots and character arcs to resolve over a few seasons as opposed to trying to work all of them they could fit into a movie.

Then since the theory is that the extra space on the BD is supposed to be for the improved sound and picture - yet here it's apparently being used to fit more product on a disc - that there's no improvement at all to the quality of the video or audio?  Otherwise it would take the same amount of discs.

Not necessarily. Not saying that is the case for this set, I really have no idea, and don't really care enough to research it, but there is enough room on a blu ray disc to add more content and upgrade the audio/video.

It was shot on film, and presented on TV 16:9. There's very little chance the set's not hi-def (when the Universal HD Channel was starting out, Firefly was one of the first series they showed).

Don't do it.  I bought it at that price awhile ago and...just don't.  There are two good movies in the set, both available elsewhere with actual cases instead of being stuck into cardboard sleeves with a giant, useless book, for under $10 each.

I count 5 very good films, with 4 decent to good films in there. But the packaging does indeed suck. Plus, since it's missing a couple of films that will likely show up in future releases, you might want to pass anyway.

Not as big of a deal as it used to be, but DeepDiscount starts their twice a year sale 25% off sale tomorrow, running through the 19th. While DD has gotten a bit pricier than it used to be in recent years, and their customer service got a little iffy for a while too, this is a good opportunity for the purchase of some things:
* Various Legend Films titles, like, say , older Rifftrax titles @ about 5.25 each.
*MST3k Sets
*Some Anime titles.

Other stuff can be found cheaply as well, you'll just need to make sure you price check. And I believe that this year's code is Summer11 for the discount.

Oh hey. This is the perfect thread for this.

If you plan on goin to see Bridesmaids, X-Men: First Class, and/or Green Lantern, you can get "free" blu-ray movies with each.  

On the cover of select titles, they give you "movie cash" to go see the movies.  The cool thing is that most of the titles are $10 and will give you back about $10 in movie cash (a ticket you redeem at your local participating theater (http://www.emoviecash.com/locator)).

List of available titles:

Bridesmaids:
Baby Mama
Cinderella Man
Duplicity
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
In Bruges
Knocked Up
Role Models
The 40-Year-Old Virgin
Uncle Buck

X-Men: First Class:
All four X-Men movies (which are only $8!).  There may be some other titles too.

And Green Lantern:
Just look for ANY comic book movie.  Batman (first four), Superman, etc.

The crazy thing for me is that I don't even own a blu-ray player... but, hey, free blu-rays.  I'm not gonna turn that down.  Esp when blu-ray players will prob be about the price of dvd players by the end of the year.  Movies I got were "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", the first "X-Men" movie, and "Watchmen":  all movies I had planned on getting eventually anyway.  Total sweetness!

Oh!  And this might be a Best Buy exclusive. I'm not sure.

Stan, actually the X-Men blus are $7.99 and the movie cash is worth up to $12. It's a fairly good deal.

Right! Forgot to mention that. They're actually paying people to see it!  Haha.  Just got back from the midnight showing. I saw the stack of printed out coupons which was cool cuz all I had to do was hand it over.  Transaction done.  End of line.

Good movie too (tho my heart belongs to the first two).

Somewhat decent PC/Mac owners Left 4 Dead 2 is on sale for one day for $6.80 (http://store.steampowered.com/app/550/) on Steam. Probably my favorite game the past few years to play. So many custom campaigns (you have to find them and download them most are on www.l4dmaps.com) you can play 3 or 4 games worth of campaigns with this super cheap purchase.

Saw that. Almost bought for resale later.
Looks like they're not that much more expensive than the ones on Ebay. Seems like it'd end up being too much work for maybe a $15 net gain. I just used this as an excuse to finally own them.

If it had regular cases inside, I'd probably have done it.  I hate special giant packaging though.
I usually don't mind it. The special full series set of Home Movies is nice because it's basically just a wooden box with all the slim cases that were in the individual sets inside. This one is kind of terrible though. You've got the rectangular toy box with all ten discs lined up diagonally. Makes it impossible to take them out without touching the bottom of the disc. If I had a printer I'd probably try to find the covers online and put at least the Blu Rays in their own cases.

For reasons that I'm not quite sure of, Sunday is Dave's day, and the Famous Dave's BBQ chain (located in 37 states) is offering free entrees (up to $15) to anyone named Dave today. If your middle name is Dave, it's half off. And if you're named Arby, well, you have my deepest condolences.

I'd make a reference to the international Dave conspiracy here, but I'm likely the only one to remember that from Narbonic, so I won't. But Dave Van Domelen, you get to help run the world and get free food today! Grats!

Best Buy $5 off $14.99 or more DVD/BD (http://www.fatwallet.com/blu-ray-deals/best-buy-in-store-coupon-5-off-blu-ray-or-dvd-14-99-and-up/) coupon.  Expires 7/31.

I used it to buy Blues Brothers and Animal House for $10 each today (had my wife buy the other one).  They didn't read the fine print or anything, so it went smoothly.

They're doing this deal again. A complete list of eligible titles is at bestbuy.com/upgradeandsave. I got Pulp Fiction, Grindhouse and Trainspotting for $10 apiece, and The Usual Suspects for $5.

Well, it's that time of year and Black Friday info is starting to trickle in. And here's an omen of things to come:

Best Buy will be opening at midnight on Black Friday. And more interestingly, in 20 markets, they'll be opening at 9 PM.

We'll see if other retail stores are going to follow suit.

The whole Black Friday shopping is really not about finding bargains so much as it is an adventure for people and adds a little bit of excitement into their lives.   As such, it really does not bother me.   It is kind of like tailgating for shoppers.

I prefer to do my black friday shopping on amazon.com, but to each their own.

I've been spending the last few days compiling the various BF ads and right now, that $99.96 Wii is the lowest price out there. Those will go on sale at 10 PM on Thursday, BTW.

Yeah I missed out on some of the ones today, but am going to try to grab a few more this week.

Seven Samurai (Criterion) and Sweeney Todd being the two main ones.  I might also try to grab Anchorman and Galaxy Quest to upgrade from DVD if the price is low enough (Neither film screams that an upgrade would be worth spending too much on, but for the right price I would totally jump on it.)

And if that Tron Legacy is the BluRay 3D version, then I would grab that one if it is under $15.
Title: Re: The deals thread

Anchorman is one of my all time faves, but I don't see where going from DVD to Blu for that one would make too much of a difference.  Unlike say, going from a full frame VHS to a widescreen DVD.

But i would definitely pick it up for $5 or less, if that is what it is going to go for.

For me it was worth it because it's got the theatrical version in widescreen. I thought the unrated version was vastly inferior, but you could only buy the theatrical on a pan-and-scan DVD.

Was it PG-13 in the theaters?  I saw it in the theater and then bought the unrated DVD.  How much of a difference between the two?

So, the Amazon MP3 Album of the day deal today is the Soundtrack to Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.

So, if you've ever wanted to hear the Chipmunks sing "Party rock Anthem" or "Bad Romance" here's the perfect chance to do so.
Title: Re: The deals thread
Post by: Relaxing Dragon on December 20, 2011, 11:12:31 AM
A few minutes of runtime and a few lines, but one of my favorites from the theatrical was after the party at the beginning; in the unrated version Champ says he shat a squirrel and Brick says he ate it, which isn't very funny or clever.

The original scene plays out like this:
http://www.youtube.com/v/PQ3ad5LE3e0

Which I adored when I saw it. I kept quoting the "And they would not stop screaming" line to people, and then was horrified when it wasn't in the DVD release.

When it comes down to it, I'll take absurdist over vulgar any day.



That's interesting, I never knew that (but then, I never watched it in theaters). Good to know this, since I've always figured the general rule of thumb for these sorts of movies is the unrated version is basically the same. And I too greatly prefer absurdest to vulgar.

A few minutes of runtime and a few lines, but one of my favorites from the theatrical was after the party at the beginning; in the unrated version Champ says he shat a squirrel and Brick says he ate it, which isn't very funny or clever.

The original scene plays out like this:
http://www.youtube.com/v/PQ3ad5LE3e0

Which I adored when I saw it. I kept quoting the "And they would not stop screaming" line to people, and then was horrified when it wasn't in the DVD release.

When it comes down to it, I'll take absurdist over vulgar any day.

theres actually an entire other movie they made with left over footage and subplots.

But this wasn't. This was the original movie.

no really?i was just referring to the other movie seeing as how a new edition of the original movie was being mentioned and people seemed to like it.

Okay, a heads up here for folks who want a Kindle.

Target has decided to no longer carry Amazon products in their stores and starting tomorrow (Friday Thursday), all Kindles will be clearanced at 30% off their retail price. It still in stock, they'll go to 50% off the Friday after that and then 75% off the third Friday from now. But I doubt they'll last too long.

There are reasons why Target is doing this (http://money.msn.com/business-news/article.aspx?feed=AP&date=20120502&id=15059740), but the net effect is no more Amazon at Target.

Further note- lots of reports that Target hasn't actually reduced prices yet. It may not be taking effect until the weekend. (shrug)

The car. Not an image file.

Probably not a deal for everyone and you could probably get the dealer to knock $300 off the price of any other car so that you could buy a Vita with that cash...but hey! If you're looking to buy a Scion anyway, might as well get a Vita too!

And hey! It has 11 airbags. Eleven. That's safety for you and the whole starting lineup of the Seattle Mariners. (It's an AL team. They'll bring along a DH too.)

I've never gotten into comic books but have always been slightly interested, any suggestion for something mature, with interesting, dramatic, and competent story writing that takes precedence over action? If it helps I'm really into the biologic sciences and semi realistic subject matter.

Well, Alan Moore is considered one of the best writers in comics, perhaps From Hell, his meticulously researched theory on who Jack the Ripper was (If you saw the movie based on this book, wipe it from your memory), though my favourite work of his is The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Again, ignore the movie).

I would also recommend Blankets, which is an autobiographical story.

Saga is an amazing series at the moment. As is The Massive.

My all time favourite graphic novel is Vampire Loves by Joann Sfar. And if you like that, The Rabbi's Cat, Isaac the Pirate and Gus & His Gang. All of those blew me away, and really changed the comics I was making at the time.

Whoops, didn't see this until now.

My wishlist was a short one (I'm always incredibly picky when it comes to what movies I buy these days, and that goes doubly so for Criterion):
F for Fake
Seven Samurai
Safety Last
Traffic
The Night of the Hunter

I passed that list along to a few others, so at least a few should be coming my way for Christmas.

I also saw Charade last night and loved it, so I'll try to swing by the store and get it tomorrow, since the sale should still be in effect until tomorrow evening.

I've also been really curious about Judex for a while now, but can't seem to find any way to actually watch the thing (I swore off blind buying many years ago, so I can't go that route).

Here in Aus it is really hard to watch a lot of the stuff Criterion releases before buying, especially legally.

I've bought 89 Criterion Blu Rays and almost all of them were blind buys. Maybe 5 we didn't like or wouldn't watch again. Pretty goos odds, when a significant portion of the others have become all time favourite films!

True, but again, it all comes down to me being so picky with what I own. It's not that I need to like a movie, I need to like it enough (and feel a certain way watching it) that I'd actually have good reason to pull it out and watch it on at least a theoretically regular basis, or otherwise have some good need to have it right there right then instead of waiting for a rental to arrive. I get tough on that criteria, because I'm still coming down from the days of buying everything I remotely liked and ending up with an overstuffed shelf gathering dust (even putting Seven Samurai on my list is big for me, because I've been saying no to that buy for a while now on the basis that I never have time for a three-and-a-half hour movie these days).

So, all of the above taken in, I'm the sort who has to has to has to rent/otherwise watch a movie first before buying it.

Luckily I just found out that Judex is on Amazon Instant, so I'm going to give a go there soon. Also, I did go out and buy Charade today, which feels good.

For folks who have access to the Microsoft store that's bundled with Win 8/10 and Xboxes, Microsoft is offering a number of MP3 albums, video games and movie rentals for $.10 each for the weekend. If you don't have, say, Lorde's album, this is a good chance to pick it up. And for movies, I'd say Mad Max or Jurassic World are worth a dime to rent. Pixels is up there too, and to paraphrase "Thumbellina", no a dime is actually a reasonable price for it.

Probably only local deals, but Meijer opened up a new store here this week and a lot of other stores have lowered prices to match what Meijer is pushing as deals for the opening. Pretty much everyone here is selling strawberries for 88 cents a pound (bought 4 and froze 2) and 12 packs of Pepsi products at 5 for $10. Meijer also put out a coupon to save $5 off any purchase of $25 or more and many of the other stores have put out their own coupons to match. 
Hadn't been into a Meijer before. Kind of a more upscale Wal Mart super center. Nice store, but probably won't shop there very often as their prices (except on sale items) seemed a bit higher than stores that are closer to my home.

As a bonus to rewards members (doesn't cost to join the program), rewards members can get a free small popcorn and $2 hotdogs and $2 small soft drinks (also only on Tuesdays, but boy, they don't advertise the free popcorn or $2 hotdogs and drinks at all in the theater- only knew about it due to emails)-in fact a "small" pocorn and "small" soda aren't even on the menu, so are smaller that what you can normally order, but still plenty big).

The price of beef around here is ridiculous lately. Local grocery store chain has fresh ground 85% lean on sale for $2.97 a pound in 1 pound packages (most similar deals I've seen recently are for 5 plus lb. packeges). Bought 3, made burgers last night with 1 and froze the other 2.

More national deal-Aldi Foods has beef brisket on sale for $4.29 a pound. Not something they normally carry and actually not something I was looking for when I went there today, but I bought a 5 lb brisket (only 1 they ha left) and I'm going to smoke it on Saturday.

Being Black Friday I guess there are all sorts of deals as there always are. Not looking to spend much money, but picked up a Roku Ultra from Amazon today. $49.99...usually $99.99.
I've had Roku devices for years and the old Roku 2 in the bedroom is starting to get awfully slow when accessing certain channels with some channels even throwing up a "this channel would work better with a newer Roku" message.
Plan to hook the Ultra up to the living room big screen and move the old Roku 3 from the living room to the bedroom to replace the old Roku 2.

Hulu is offering their "limited commercial" package for just 99 cents per month for twelve months for the next three hours. It is normally $7.99, so this is a pretty good deal. The deal is only available to new subscribers, but my wife and I already had it so we just cancelled our membership and opened a new one with a different email address and it worked fine.

It feels like I got one over on the man. I highly suggest giving that a shot if you are so inclined.

Great deal. I personally rarely watch anything via Hulu, but when I canceled it about a year ago I found out my wife used Hulu a lot. Found out we get free Hulu (limited commercial version) due to having Sprint as our cell phone provider. Had to jump through a few hoops- had to re-sub using phone with wifi turned off- but we now get Hulu (with limited commercials) for free (well, free except for our cell phone bill).

WeTek Hub currently selling for under $50 on Amazon. Great media player if you're willing to overwrite the crappy Android TV OS that it comes with with LibreELEC. Not top of the line specs for a media player, but LbreELEC doesn't need a lot of resources and the WeTek Hub has better specs than the Rasberry Pi that a lot of people use for LibreElec. Biggest downside is only 1 USB port, but that can be fixed with a USB hub.

I don't really think this counts as a deal, but Barnes and Noble is having a 50% off sale on all Criterion discs. so basically, Barnes and Noble prices their Criterion discs at about $10 more than their actual retail price, or nearly twice as much as on Amazon. I compared sales prices with the current price on Amazon, and at half price the B&N discs save you a total of $2. So why the hell would anyone buy Criterion discs at B&N the rest of the year when there isn't a sale?
