Anyone know what these are like?

https://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/televisions/televisions/ultra-hd-4k-televisions/60-69-uhd-tvs/panasonic-th-65fx640z-65-4k-ultra-hd-hdr-smart-led-television/prod162509.html

Seems like a really good deal to me, looking at updating my 5 year old 50" which is starting to show a bit of burn. Not looking to spend over $2K 

 

 

 

 

Not sure how good the Panasonic is, but there is a really awesome Sony 55" on sale:

And review (pretty sure its for this model):

Edit: did some more research into the Panasonic, it doesn't support HDCP2.2 so will be missing some features from Blurays (maybe gaming too) such as HDR

 

 

are you sure? how can a brand new branded tv bought in 2018/19 not support hdcp 2.2

Mentioned here -

quite far down under HDMI. I assume its relevant.

The same page also says HDCP 2.2 is supported on 3 of the HDMI ports, I dont know which one is correct but it would look pretty stupid not to have it on an HDR capable TV

Sometimes the specs page is wrong as it is likely copy and pasted and sometimes from the wrong product page

Here are some of the sales terms I saw today:

 

'40% off selected items'

 

'40% off - selected items excluded'

 

These first two seen at different shops, had me laughing to myself!  Imagine trying to explain the difference in those two terms to young children.

 

'Up to 50% off, all stock reduced'

 

'25% off printer inks when purchased with printer'

 

'50 % off original prices'

 

And umpteen variations of the above.

 

JB Hi-Fi had some really sharp prices such as the Canon 3000D at $379.00 but overall their sale seemed nothing special.  Only one printer appeared to have any price reduction.  One portable hard drive had exactly the same price as their other sales this year.  Logitech keyboards 20% off.

 

I saw one guy walking out of the mall with a boxed Christmas tree - I bet he got a good deal on that.

 

(I made a separate post in off-topic if a moderator wants to close that one.  Thanks.)

These brands are usually quite good if your products dont match the spec. I own a Sony 55x8000d tv which is a brand new exchange for a x8000c because the spec page promised hdr video through firmware update which never eventuated.

So looking for a new fridge Heathcote have one 978 , Farmers same model 1099 , walk into Noel Lemmings same model 1600 ask to price match wouldn’t match either due to stock levels, if they don’t have one in the physical store they won’t match. This whole meet every competitor slogan really is a crock

I finally got my Xbox one S to go with my Elite controller I bought new 18 months ago lol. Unused.

 

Got the Forza 4 pack, PBtech North Shore only had 2 left, but they do have plenty of the BF V package left at $299 https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/GAMMST14015/Microsoft-XBOX-ONE-S-1TB-Console---Battlefield-V-D?qr=pspy&ref=pricespy

 

I also bought Red Dead Redemption 2 for $89, there wasnt anywhere cheaper https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/GAMMST30027/Microsoft-Xbox-One-Red-Dead-Redemption-2---Xbox-On?qr=pspy&ref=pricespy

 

On side note Warehouse has some packages and good game deals. I went to buy Madden and Fifa 19 but the store I went to had none.

Is there any more info Im meant to supply? I always get this thread wrong :-) thanks.

128GB microSDXC card for $45 struck me as a pretty good price. Just picked up one:

Super Cheap Auto have 30% off today

 

But, many prices seem higher than usual. No 'super cheap' deals on oil etc.
Its only good for stuff they never put on special through the year .

Thats a good deal for office 365 but does anyone know what you can actually use the Skype minutes for?  
Calling landlines?
