Unless something changes, my Fire Emblem preorder is coming after the weekend. I could have ordered it today and gotten free one day shipping. They didn't even bother upgrading my preorder to one day shipping. So pissed right now.

I bought a 50" 4K Vizio from them back in August and it's been nothing short of excellent.

If I sign up for Amazon Prime free trial, I just have to provide my card number and cancel at any time, or is that a trap to start charging for membership on the offchance that people don't realize?

I'd say both. It'll charge you if you forget and don't cancel, but if you cancel, they won't charge you.

They're really good at offering refunds in that case. My parents forgot to cancel their free trial and got a full refund days after they were charged. They called Amazon support instead of using web chat though, if that helps.

You can cancel it right now so you don't forget. All canceling does is turn off auto-renew so you still get the full 30 days.

My Fire Emblem LE I ordered yesterday on Amazon shipped already surprisingly.
Of course it's Saturday of the long weekend, so I won't see it until Tuesday, but considering the estimate ship date wasn't until the 25th, that's pretty good.

Yet mine has been "shipping today" for 3 days now.

Glad that Crash Trilogy was changed up for proper prime discount off 49.99. Cancelled my orders and made news ones. Looks like a couple of CSRs are gonna be happy they don't need to go back and do work on those orders anymore.

I use a monoprice blackbird, works great. FYI some work with 4k signals, and some don't. So if you have an xbox 1 or ps4 pro, mixed with your Nintendo switch, and a 4k tv, make sure you buy the right one.

It ran really well on PS4. I'm kinda tempted to get it as I'm upgrading my PC at the moment but not sure I'll really notice a huge jump.

If the issue you're having is that it keeps switching back to the Switch every once in a while, it's not the fault of the switch but rather the Switch.

Nintendo's consoles don't seem to play nice with HDMI switches, I've had the same problem with the Wii U and the Switch

No buy for me since I'm tall, and it'll just hit my back and shit.

The Ikea Volmar isn't bad, but it's $380, that's not worth it at all when you can get second hand Aerons, Leaps, etc lol. So instead of the Markus, I'm just gonna save up for Herman Miller, Steelcase, and such.

Me too. I have 2 HDMI switches from Monoprice, and they both seem to have an issue with my Wii U, specifically, they have an issue with displaying blue colour schemes. It;s especially evident when booting up Windwaker. For example, If I were to leave it on the intro screen, the screen will start to have flickering black lines appear, which only gets worse when the camera shows ocean/sky only scenes during that segment. It's quite frustrating. None of the other consoles that are also hooked up to the Switch (XBONE, PS3) have that same problem.

Sorry, I must have missed it, but what problem did you have with your Wii U, and how did you fix it?

But then there are the Splatoon neon Green/Pink ones in the Fall, and I really want green joy-cons D=

I was surprised when I compared the 40 and 50 side by side and didn't hesitate for a second.

Edit : here's the 43" version at Walmart https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/vizio-d.../6000196976153

I was doing some shopping at Wal-Mart today, and decided to pop over to the electronics section to check out some TVs. They didn't have any Vizio 43" in stock, but they had a 50" Vizio D50-E1 on display, and what a beauty. Decently priced, too.

You were right though, the size difference isn't as dramatic as I thought. Might actually end up going for a 50" in September. (still skeptical about moving it, though - it's a 3+ hour drive and my truck pan is pretty small)

I'm 6.05" thats why I had to try it before ordering. The chair was fine with me and comfy, the head piece is just at the right spot.

At a $0.50 a gig and for 32 GB, you're not going to find a big difference among brands, you really can't go wrong with any of the major brands. Just make sure it is a class 10 SD card, you can tell on the SD card, it will have a number on it.

I'd go with this one:

Yeah stay away from Lexar SD cards, they are usually cheaper than the alternatives but it's not worth it.

I personally will not buy Lexar products. A while ago I bought two USB sticks and both were corrupted after a few months of use. At the time I only used them for school documents too. I really like Sandisk though. I've never had issues with that brand, but I think they're a little pricier.

For my New 3DS XL, I currently use a 32GB ADATA which I bought from Canada Computers. I think I got mine for 13.00 - 15.00.
