      I did see some good deals over weekend on Hue but didn't really pay attention since I assumed they'd be around all week. Dang.

      Do you mean gone in the sense of stock?

      There are still good deals around if you look for them. LEDhut has some deals although some are out of stock and you have to wait. But they offer free delivery in compensation.

      I ordered 3 X GU10 and 2 X B22 Starter Kits for £79.99 each which is around half price.

      2 GU10 kits arrived and on calling Amazon they said that the B22 kit was out of stock and being sold by anther retailer, not Amazon. Weird as they order states Amazon are selling them.

      They couldn't explain where the other GU10 kit was although the so called delivery driver attempted to deliver twice on Saturday. I was in all day and not attempt was made. The 2 that did arrive came on Sunday.

      They have honoured the deal on the GU10's and it states these will be delivered tomorrow but the B22 will be refunded.

      The weird thing is that I have arrived home today and a Hermes card was pushed through the door saying they have twice tried to pick up an Amazon parcel. Something fishy going on in my eyes.

      Hoping Amazon are going to be flogging the Netgear Orbi at a sensible price.

      Hopefully I can find some good floorstanders on sale because bookshelf speakers don't have the same bass and power output.

      Logitech Harmony Elite.

      Picked up Logitech Harmony Elite from Amazon £169 down to £119 but also took out offer of their Amazon credit card for an extra £20 off (which will be paid off next week and closed) so got it for £99 -Black Friday Result.

      Been waiting for ages for them to drop in price. Don't know how long offer is.

      It's worth noting that those are standard blurays, not UHD discs.

      I've noticed with Amazon's 'lightning deals' that not a single one of them are from Amazon, they are all from third parties. In previous years their lightning deals have been from them as well.

      So basically they are selling nothing directly in the lightning deals.
      Even worse than previous years.

      I watch the NFL on NFL Game Pass which is a subscription service that allows me to watch any game live. They show the same adverts that they would show viewers in the US during the commercial breaks.

      On Sunday, I saw adverts for a 40" Hisense tv in Walmart for $99, as well as some of the latest releases on 4k UHD for $8.98. Best Buy had a 55" 4k tv for $199 and a number of 4k UHD for $7.97. They went on to practically advertise a discount on the entire store.

      The offers in the UK by comparison are awful. Just look at the 4k UHD offers on HMV... Crazy Deals

      I can't find any decent OLED Tvs on offer in the UK for a decent price. Was looking at the Samsung nu8000 and even that is saying its down in price but was the same price weeks ago!

      As it is with all other "sales", Black Friday is just the shopping industry's way of screwing the consumer over and then making them feel like they got a bargain in most cases.

      It's just a marketing ploy. :thumbsdow

      Camelcamelcamel to the rescue.

      I did pick up a Hisense 43" AE6100 4k tv for £279 from Argos in store today, not bad but not as cheap as the US deals.

      I've been put off buying a TV because unless I can afford to buy OLED, according to many forum members, the current crop of TV's aren't worth bothering with. So I'll stick with what I've got until the manufacturers up their game, and offer products worth having without faults.

      Was looking at a 4k monitor and it was £50 cheaper in september.
      Not sure if I want to wait for a lower price or choose a different model.
      Also annoyed at lack of VA panels below 32 inches...

      From my experience on Black Friday you can get the lower priced products or maybe older "running out" models for cheap(er).
      Most of the time the actual "trendy" and probably better gadgets are not under major price reduction.

      But we will see... BF is perfect for buying gifts for kids or your misses. :)

      Wow, Superfi really are a rip off.

      £1499 for a 55B7 on a Black Friday deal?

      You can pick up the 55C8 for £100 more from lots of places.

      They will still sell loads as people are blinded by deals and don't look past the ficticious '30%' off etc.

      Hopefully not, especially when the link on there for the 55B7 redirects to a product page that says "discontinued" that won't let you purchase it ;)
