    Guessing somebody will chime in with the suggestion that you mount your own fucking TV. Sorry - nothing more to add.

    This.

    Drill, bits, level, tape measure, stud finder, screwdrivers, TV, and mount. Easy as shit.

    I was half tempted last month just due to time around the holidays, but glad I saved the $100 or whatever.

    In terms of running cords behind the drywall, look into this:

    So I think I'm going to get this: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-QN65Q...27&sr=8-2&th=1

    Which wall mount setup should I snag? I don't foresee myself angling the tv.

    From what I know behind the scenes it is a local tech that has signed up for the Amazon Tech services to fulfill the labor for the task. Amazon flat rates the stuff and of course pays the tech a fee for doing the work order. Some are probably conscientious about the work and may do a good job, others are probably just trying to get in and out as fast as possible and try and cut corners on each and every install job.

    I think my Sammy's picture is better than my LG. Same refresh, same aspect ratio. Sammy just looks crisper. Admittedly mine are about 4 year old. Both are adequate though. I'm not picky.

    Thatís the q60, Iím looking at the q70. Also the Samsung doesnít have the burn in issue that LG appears to suffer from.

    I had a similar issue with a samsu g. The main board got zapped by a surge. Exactly 1 month out of warranty. I found the orig receipt. Scanned into computer, used Ms paint to adjust date and had warranty work covered. Fuck them.

    What's the best time of year to get a deal on a tv? Is there a certain time of year where all the new tv's come in and the previous models get reduced, or maybe superbowl season, boxing day, etc? Just looking at a mid size TCL 6 series, don't mind 'last years', nothing crazy.

    Have you checked this one out yet?

    https://www.greentoe.com/product/Son...0000004uSdAIAU

    Weíve been happy with our Sony. Also check out Greentoe. Itís a legit third party that pairs you up with an authorized seller. Sort of like Priceline, you can name your price. If itís not accepted, you may get a counter offer. Iíve ordered from them a few times and itís worked fine.

    FYI there's currently a sale for 15% off TCL TV's at Best Buy with coupon code tcldolby15. Looking at Amazon price history this appears to be a screaming deal on a lot of the models. I'm buying one today.

    This is why you buy electronics at Costco on their house credit card. Costco extends the warranty to two years, buying it on their card doubles it again to four years.

    I was half tempted last month just due to time around the holidays, but glad I saved the $100 or whatever.

    In terms of running cords behind the drywall, look into this:

    I like that power bridge thing. When I did mine, I used the electrical outlet as the place for the cords to come out, I just cut a small semi-circle next to the outlet cover and had the wires come out that. It's behind a cabinet, so I don't care, but that thing looks clean.

    I like turquoise. Particularly for the outdoor power equipment line (which not everybody will care about). But all have pros and cons.

    New tools are fun. Recently discovered this tool outlet place near me that has absurd deals on stuff. Grabbed the 18v brushless recipro and brushless 6Ĺ" circ for $200 total a few months back. Both not their biggest and baddest, but would rather save weight for my homeowner needs. Was something like 40-45% off standard orange store prices.

    Yep. My FIL had an electrician business years ago and was talking to me.about running wires and whatnot so it was to code. Wasn't looking forward to it and figured their had to be a cleaner way. Sure enough.

    Depending on the mount, you may need a socket set or some sort of wrench to tighten lag bolts into the studs (if not using toggle bolts), some mounts also need allen wrench - but they many times include on in the hardware if they do. If you are fishing wire down the wall and putting a wall jack in, then add a dry wall saw or power reciprocal cutting saw, and a fish tape or something to get the wire down the wall.

    This time of the year in the next few weeks (leading up to the super bowl is one of the times to get a bit better deal). Black Friday/Cyber Monday is another time of the year for sales and deals (of course passed).
