    In any event, the net result was nothing.

    Nothing, but I'm considering picking up a better MicroSD for my phone. Still on offer.

    2x crucial SSD's 1tb+512gb and 2 roku 4661's for $99 About all I needed I guess. Already bought the PC crap eariler (8700k, 1070ti, board, mem etc way earlier this year). Christmas came pretty early this year I guess..LOL. Black Friday was kind of a dud for me I guess. Vizio 5.1.2 soundbar ($299 deal from costco) also, but again that was just a normal costco ad, not really black friday. Still on the way, but not BF. Oh and an 8TB seagate also from costco (LOL, love that place), but again, just drove and picked it up last week, not really BF. I don't order drives anymore ONLINE (beat the crap out of them). Since I stopped doing that my drives last for a decade in externals. I have 3TB externals from 2007 with <400hrs on them. Almost bought an echo, but decided against having a spy in my home...ROFL. I still might get the dot3 just for kicks, but I doubt it will be on much when anyone is talking. $25, who cares how much I use it...LOL. Weather and news maybe in the morning while eating or something, about it, then off for the day. It's a toy at best, for giggles. Maybe more uses with all the apps they have now once explored. But I hate bezos.

    Re: QOTW: What did you buy on Black Friday 2018?

    I felt like I got some good deals...

    Samsung 27" 144mhz QHD (Freesync 2) monitor for £399
    RX Vega 56 Pulse for £299
    Samsung 970 Evo 500gb m2 nvme for £83 (or £86?)

    These were deals before black Friday though... On the day it was just junk or amazon devices (junk too?)

    I got a Philips Hue starter kit, and some Hue bulbs on a separate order... I've received the bulbs but the starter kit is on backorder potentially until mid-January, which is frustrating!
