Best Buy is running an Early Black Friday sale, but the company is taking a page out of the Amazon Prime Day playbook and only offering the best discounts to members of its two subscription programs.

My Best Buy Plus is a $50/year service that includes 2-day free shipping and member-only discounts. But signing up will let you save $100 on an Asus ROG Ally handheld gaming PC, among other things, so you might come out ahead if you just sign up for a year. Meanwhile, My Best Buy Total is a tougher sell at $180/year. But in addition to free shipping and discounted prices, this plan includes 24/7 tech support and 20% off repair costs.

    1. Do they? Generally speaking, any TV that cheap is going to be using a VA panel and while I was shopping around for a large display recently I’ve seen lots of reviews of cheaper screens saying that text doesn’t display well. I ended up getting a 43″, VA, 144Hz, 4k monitor. And with it, framebuffer text is indeed almost illegible although composted text is fine.
      If you had a better experience than those reviewers with your model, okay that’s good, but that’s just one data point.

      Also, cheap TVs don’t go over 60hz. In fact $800 TVs don’t really go over 60hz, they got to 60 and use a neural network to interpolate between each actual frame they receive. I don’t care about framerate outside of games as much as I thought I would after getting my monitor, but I think most people who play games would generally agree that to excel, to stand out, a monitor really does need a higher framerate than 60hz.
      Of course if you’d said “excellent for the price point” then I’d just have to go “I dunno maybe” and move on, but I did have to spend $700 to get my monitor which while I consider to be quite good for what it is, I wouldn’t go as far as to call it excellent.
      What I really wanted was the same thing in 50″ but that just didn’t exist, and the “smart tv” botnet features the competition was advertising were just really agitating me that day.

      1. I agree, 4K TVs don’t make great monitors. They typically don’t have good enough sharpness, and text will suffer. They also typically have very poor response times.

        Another downside to them using VA panels is ghosting. Basically, high contrast movement in the image will leave a ghost trail behind the parts that are moving.
