    change coke, people go nuts
    change the way facebook looks, people go nuts

    there are people that still dont do e-booking and e-checkins for airlines... like, do people LIKE waiting in lines?!?! i sure as hell don't

    i for one welcome the changes... i look forward to new things.... if i see a white chocolate reeses peanut butter cup.. im all over it..
    I think people avoid e-bookings and check-ins because they're scared of something new or they forgot and rushed off the the airport. I'm with you. I'd much rather bypass some of the lines and get to secure the seat I like most before showing up. To avoid the middle seat is more reason than enough to get online and check-in in as little as a few minutes. Hell you can do it on an iphone faster now.

    I'm an odd ball when it comes to sugar. I cut the stuff out and now not only do I not crave it but this post above makes me a little queezey. Salted snacks on the other hand?... I can't seem to quit those.

    I hate flying... Every phobia I have gets assaulted on planes... so I have to plan ahead and pick my seats and get everything in order as early as possible

    I even find out what kind of plane it is, look up the seating charts for that particular model on that particular airline... Alot of airlines will remove the stock,seating in the plane and replace it with sardine can seating.. So even the coveted emergency exit seats are craptastic...

    Sweet, I'll find it again some day, haha.

    Back to TV's, as far as I can tell, this is a decent deal.. It's back-lit so probably wouldn't have much problem with glare, and I'll definitely get new curtains before hand that block out all light just in case http://www1.thebrick.com/brickb2c/js...estid=1363487#

    (Think you need postal code to check price, but just exit that and you can check stats. Price is $898 for me)

    There are a lot of deals to be had because of the Super Bowl coming up.. Also saw a 24 inch 1080p LCD for $198 that I'm eyeing just for bedroom.

    Thoughts, comments, leads on any other deals, gimme a shout. Also lemme know what you think of this deal, thanks in advance.

    Edit: Oh yeah, my only problem is that it's Toshiba.. I honestly don't know much about them in regards to TV's, where do they rank? Might be the reason it seems so cheap.

    toshiba's dec, i wouldn't have it as my main/basement tv, but, for bedroom/living room, i'd go for it. but, if you get a good deal you take it, i got my two tvs at future shop for what ended up being around a grand. an underrated brand is hitachi they make good tvs.

    I'm looking to make the leap to 4k. Of all the research I've done it seems OLED still has the best picture quality despite sacrificing a bit of brightness.

    I'm leaning towards the LG OLED C7 55" and wondered if anyone has this TV or any recommendations for other TVs. Pros and cons etc.

    Lets hear it!

    I don't know much about tvs... I recently bought LG OLED C7P 65". Expensive but worth the price if you want to watch multiple NBA LP games on one tv screen

    I'm loving it. I only watch 4K soccer and NBA on this tv, so I can't tell ya much.. but I was really impressed with picture quality. It's amazing. Price is quite high though so that kinda sucks... overall, I'm happy.

    Yeah i think the price of yours is still around $4,000. The 55" is about $2500 right now and I'm hoping to get it on a black Friday sale. Most reviews say its the best TV for 2017 so figure its worth it.

    Hey, I'm looking to get a new TV, but the problem is, I don't know much about them. Anyone have any recommendations on what kind I should get or perhaps any deals you know about anywhere?

    What I know so far is that I want it to be a between 40-55", and I hear that on a TV that size it's recommended to get 1080p. From what I've seen, LED-backlit seems to be the best, still, I'm open to any opinions. Price range is pretty flexible, so just tell me your thoughts, and who knows, maybe the thread will help other people too.

    Thanks in advance.
    The questions you should ask yourself and then answer for us to help you best:

    1. What am I going to use it for?
    2. What room is it going in, where is it going in the room and what's the distance I plan to sit away from the TV?

    I will be using it for gaming, movies and sports mostly and it will be going in my living room. I think my couch and lazyboy are about 5-7 feet away

    I am by no means an "expert" in judging TVs but I noticed a couple of points you made and you might want to check this out some more:

    1) the distance from a 55" tv you hope to locate yourself may be somewhat less than optimum.

    2) if gaming is a large part of your usage...you may want to test this out at a store on the LG Oled or check the specs results in a detailed review of the model re "motion" tests. The CNET site typically do a good job on this.

    The 2017 oleds are great for gaming. 2016 not so much
