What are you looking forward to getting for Black Friday and Cyber Monday? I’m looking to get some audio equipment whether it’s speakers, subwoofer, headphones or a decent amp.

Btw, where is the Black Friday OT with all the ads?

Bought myself a little Roland Tr6s drum machine. I got a Novation Circuit Tracks a while back and thought this might go well with it.

Bought myself some Beats Solo 3 for $99.
They sound like trash but for working out they are serviceable.

Got Guardians on PS5 today. Probably it.

If they had free time for sale, I'd stock up on that this year.

nothing. if i want something i buy it when i need it. if i have to wait for a sale to get something then i probably don't really need it.

i hate the whole black friday shit. it really shows off the worst of humans. we're mindless consumers desperate for a deal even if it's shit we don't even need. people are like "oh i saved x% on a 42" tv. i don't even need it but wow what a deal!!".

most stuff that goes on sale during black friday is trash. companies are just desperate for your money and retailers are wanting to clear up space for next years new shiny toys to sell you.

Already purchased 4K Blu-ray’s of V for Vendetta/Willy Wonka ($10 each) and Requiem for a Dream ($8). Might order a few more things depending on sales that day.

Probably nothing. Last year I had a few things I wanted to get, so I decided to wait until black friday for the sale, only to find out they were all sold out; so I just ended up waiting longer to get the things I wanted.

Got myself a 65” LG C1, already at the discount price plus an additional 20% back on BNPL interest free. Couldn’t pass that up.

I think an Xbox series x. I like PS5 but halo is a big thing, gears 6. Can I find my shooter fix on PS5? That’s my question.

Definitely going after RAM. Maybe a different case. If there is a crazy deal on any CPU then gonna do that. Well and SSD deals. However RAM number 1 and SSD number 2.

Not too sure about getting anything else

Hoping to nab some Game Pass Ultimate at discount as I go along.
Still have 2 years left - but thinking about just topping it off every so often if I see a big sale going on.

Is black Friday still relevant as it used to be? I was under the impression that you could score great deals year round, due to fierce e-commerce competition.

It’s still great, I use www.slickdeals.net to track what’s going on

been finding some amazing deals every year

I strongly recommend using slickdeals or a website like it

Black Friday ads this year have been very mediocre, I haven’t really seen anything interesting. This year seems pretty lame compared to prior years.
