Had the same with Amazon recently. Tracking showed that the TV had been dropped and smashed. They really need to work on their QC.

I bought a Samsung 43" 120Hz. UHDTV 4K screen not long ago from Fry's Online Store, in California. It traveled almost 3,000 miles to get here and it was in perfect condition. I'm near the US East Coast, in Virginia. They used UPS to ship it.

I think that shipping is a crapshoot these days, but the online savings are worth any problems that arise. My TV was a little over $300.00 on sale. Local stores are selling it for $450.00 or more. My TV is a 2018 model but a lot of local stores in my area are still selling last years products.

Shipping was free. You just can't beat it.

After seeing a documentary on how the staff are treated. I can understand why things get through QC poorly. They are treated like slaves for hours on end with unrealistic quotas to meet.

With summer starting to end I figured I best stock up for winter. Had a bit of a splurge, but only ended up spending £53.

I still haven't finished this.



I played this for 5 mins on PC and never returned. Not that it was bad, just didn't play it.



This isn't something I would normally buy but I figured sod it, broaden my horizons and all that s**t.



This was OK, and even more OK being just £6.



And a familiar friend and one of the best FPS ever made.



Oh yeah, my fave COD made.
