    Well I guess I did end up buying an extremely discounted pair of Galaxy Buds so I guess that counts. I didn't realise that was why it was discounted when I did tbh

    Rocket League and Thumper on sale, as well as pair of really good earbuds. I'm generally satisfied!

    An AOC 31.5" WQHD WLED IPS panel Freesync monitor to replace my ageing but still nice to use Asus PG 191. It was already a bargain at full price but the 25% discount I got was just too good to refuse. Just need a new graphics card to make the most of it.

    That's strange because LG sucks big time. Been used Sony for many many years since my old Sony LCD and LED doesn't came with smart tv so I sold LCD Sony to my friend and still have LED Sony non smart and my brother wants it. We have an Android TV Sony LED brand new 50 inches this year. Very happy with Sony in the past. Never had a problem. To be honest LG sucks since it was made in South Korea just like Kai car sucks big time!

    To be honest the LG C9 works great, no problem there, but that is not the point.

    The SONY Bravia KD-55X850C 4K Android TV that I had for some 3 years now was never flawless, it had weak WiFi reception and many WiFi related problems, that actually if you look around forums are widespread problems with this model... And when looking for how to solve this problem in forums a year ago I also saw many people having the eternal reboot problem and never being able to solve it, it was a ticking bomb and I was hoping it never happened to me, but in the end it happened. And regarding LGC9 OLED, it is considered the best TV of the year (regarding picture quality/price) by many reviewers... but that is not the point, I would have even bought an "OK." TV before going for SONY again, I am sour as hell.

    And now also SONY keeps giving me reasons to be annoyed: I just wanted to buy a couple of games in the German PSN store today, you know discounts/etc., but it seems that if you happen not to be German then SONY Germany will take your EU-Passport, give zero fucks about it and tell you "I can't verify your age Ausländer, fuck you won't sell to you!"... the sourness just won't stop. I guess if Ouya ever produced a new console I would go even for that instead of a PS5 given how sour I am today.

    I understand your point but I am very happy with Sony TV in the past and still today. Off the point, I don't have a problem with Bank of America. That's named of Bank I went. My friend had bad experienced with BOA. Gave it up but I never had a problem with BOA for over 10 years now.

    I don't care about PSN so that is not the point either. :) By the way, sorry about your experienced, thought. Guess everyone have pros and cons for everything. Not everyone are having the same experienced, you know.

    Were they discounted?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Yeah I used to run an e-commerce website and it was a marketing technique, atttact peeps with low price but include the price difference in the shipping cost.

    I see gba temp pays well, any openings jk that nice

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I guess they still have a hidden deal, two spicy chicken burgers for 5$

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Which ones?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    That's the spirit, wonder if bills were discounted though

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Totally agree, I mean for some people it's an opportunity to awaken the beast in themselves (or just be themselves)
