Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

Microspot have a deal on the well-reviewed Lotusgrill portable BBQ for 99chf which is around 15% cheaper than most other stores: https://www.microspot.ch/de/freizeit...u--P0000663065

Yes it is still pricey for a portable BBQ, but apparently the design is very clever and with the electric fan minimises preparation time as well as smoke, and it is apparently a doddle to clean too.

I also bought:

Wait why you bought a carrying bag? You know that the carrying bag is included right? Or have you bought it as an extra spare too?

Anyway, good deal, I bought mine for 119.- and was the best deal I've could find by the time...

To compare I always go to toppreise.ch: Not only because they compare the prices for most Swiss shops, but also because they have a price chart going back years so you can compare not only current but also past prices for an item.

I'm not totally with you on the 'doodle to clean', but it's definitely worth it! I bought it for my small balcony about a year ago (also for CHF 99.-, but at Galaxus - now 120.-) and it's really practical: the coal is hot in about 3-5 minutes and the outside stays cool, so you can move it around anytime. It's probably not meant for big t-bone steaks, but our Olma bratwursts, brochettes and chicken breasts for two have always turned out great!

I of course know toppreise but I don't care enough to check prices going back years, that's a bit over the top, I just check and care about current prices.

Enough user reviews on all Amazon sites say the cleaning is relatively painless so that's good enough for me. Thanks for the feedback though, I sounds like it's going to be perfect for lake bbq and maybe the occasional quick one on my little balcony!

Melectronics LG OLED 65 CHF1’999

Migros Electronics currently selling the LG OLED65E7v for CHF1’999, reduced from CHF5’699

https://produkte.migros.ch/lg-oled65...-cm-4k-oled-tv

The price on the link above, is for non-cumulus card holders.

In addition when buying, I was able to use a 10x cumulus points voucher, so TV ended up costing CHF1’800!

You will have to wait 3-4 weeks for delivery, as they have run out of stock, which is strange as the offer says “while stocks last”.

Apparently folks have been traveling from far and wide to snap up this deal.

Re: Melectronics LG OLED 65 CHF1’999

2.000,- for an 65" Oled/Qled are normal prices since they are cleaning out the old 2017 models. People should not rush into this one since it feels so cheap (the state price is btw the introduction advisory price, so not relevant), but see what all is out there atm.

Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

At 1800 the E7 is a helluva deal although I got the B6 7 months ago for similar and it's been an incredible TV

OLED

It's an excellent price for that particular TV

You are putting QLED and OLED in the same category?

Admittedly you did say that is the normal price for a 65 and not that is the normal price for an OLED 65.

See post 454 above

In our side-by-side comparison reviews, OLED-based TVs are still the best we've ever tested, and all of them outperform the one QLED TV we've reviewed, Samsung's Q7, by a wide margin.

Yeah, that was quite interesting. Learnt something about the "tellies of today". I used to know it all but as I hardly ever use mine anymore I had to notice I'm definitely no longerp to date. I wonder if mine has become vintage yet?
Something tells me it's not the same as offering a vintage car or bike though

At my age I cannot differentiate the quality of the latest visual and acoustic offerings from those of yesteryear.
They should carry a health warning; only suitable for those with 20/20 vision and range of hearing 15 Hz to 20 kHz !

If you can see black and white then you can see the visual difference, because it is the black levels which are hugely important to a good cinematic experience and on OLED's they are essentially true black.
