I can't justify pulling the trigger on one. My Xbox one is just a Netflix machine at this point.
Me neither. The only game I'm interested in right now for PS5 is Horizon FW, which isn't exclusive. Not going to buy a $500 console to play one game that's not even out yet. I didn't get a PS3 until 2010, and a PS4 until 2016, so if I have to wait another year or 2, so be it.

Walmart is advertising a restock next Monday on their Black Friday ad.

I got my TV last year so this year I need a sound bar and an Xbox Series X (Fat chance I'll find one even at retail price though).
Skip the soundbar. This home theater was $1100 year ago.

Home thetaer systems blow soundbars out of the water

We’ve got a Samsung 2.1 soundbar in the bedroom which sucks balls but I am more than happy with sound quality the JBL 2.1 we have in our living room. I think the JBL was 375ish a few years ago and the wireless sub is great. There is a gigantic difference between spending 120 bucks on a bar and 350ish.

Ive got an actual theater system and receiver sitting in storage. I don’t see enough difference in sound quality to justify the extra speakers and the receiver laying around and running wires everywhere. The theater system listed above needs a receiver as well, so you’re talking 200 probably minimum at that point.

Please don't post any photos...my mind has already decided what this looks like.

Klipsch does make a wireless system, you can pick up receivers at decent prices these day. Overall a separate system will always sound better than a soundbar, but let me warn you it can get to be an expensive hobby, but also a lot of fun.
Nothing like shaking the house when I crank up the subs.

Looking for a deal on Apple Watches. Any idea what to watch for?
The big thing is if you want it to act like your phone without your phone. Meaning you can make calls and text from it and have data hooked up to it and it doesn’t have to route through your phone

I'm not in the Apple ecosystem but like about everything else, people rarely complain when they buy the big one. I think last year when I bought my wife's watch, the choice was between a 40mm and 44mm and I went with the 44.

I'm looking at getting my daughter a Fire Kids pro tablet. 8" or 10" one. Trying to decide if the larger one is worth it (slightly better processor).

Unfortunately, most technology products will be having stocking issues rather than surplus this year. Silicon shortages effect pretty much everything "smart" these days. First wave was the cars, then gaming consoles, and so on. There is a light at the end of the tunnel but it's a lot further away than some people seem to believe.

Anyone see any good deal on ear buds? I need new ones for working out. I bought some but they ended up not having good sound like I expected. Good for podcasts but not music. Thought about Raycons, I see they are 20% off right now.
