LG OLED E9 55" 4K HDR TV and Amazon Fire Stick 4k

After ~10 years using a Full-HD Panasonic plasma and assorted media players (AC Ryan PlayOn! HD, atom/haswell-based XBMC/Kodi HTPCs), this is incredible. Now have to gradually increase my NAS storage to hold 4K versions of shows/movies unavailable on Netflix/Prime Video.

All hail our OLED overlords!

LG OLED E9 55" 4K HDR TV and Amazon Fire Stick 4k

How much? Was it purchased locally from a store or online?

There was a time cheap LG OLEDs were flooding Lazada and Shopee.  I asked about OLED TV's at Western Marketing a few weeks ago. There were no LG OLEDs available and I asked about them. The salesman claimed all the LG OLED were recalled.


Bought the TV online here in Singapore, SGD2800 (just shy of PhP100k) over 12 months 0% interest, so approx PhP8,300 a month. I wasn't able to get the last stocks for the super-popular LG C9 (~SGD2500) and the replacement CX model is oddly more expensive (~SGD3700). My old 42" Panasonic plasma cost around SGD1000 brand new in Jan 2010.

The recall is true, but only certain models are affected, this model not included (primarily 65/77 inchers made from 2016-2019), see

^kala ko naman antex! Yung from europe! Ganda ng hitsura nun, so nung nagkaroon sa sulit dati, tinext ko agad seller. Pero it was sold within 8 hours of posting.

There is nothing wrong with goot. Or the other japanese brand na di ko na maalala, yung red. Ok, yung problema is lipana ang fakes. Tawa ako sa isang store sa raon- they actually sell the fake and genuine side by side, magkaiba presyo, slightly different ang packaging..

Been a while since i soldered something. Parang.. mas maganda daw yung ceramic yung heater kesa old school nickel chrome(?)..
Will never, ever buy a SONY ever again.

Ilang watts ang equivalent nyan?
I have old school soldering irons: a generic 40-W from my college days (long-life tip FTW) and a more recent Creston 60-W. Napabili lang ako ng 60W kasi hindi kaya ng 40-W nung nagpalit ako ng caps ng motherboard.

Haylou GT1 Plus TWS earbuds, first time to try bluetooth earbuds. Surprisingly good sound, touch controls are a bit tricky to activate though.

I've been on a massive IoT binge this past year and have replaced almost all my house switches with electronic ones which are controllable via my home assistant server and google home/alexa. To keep costs low I now make my own switches using ESP8266/ESP32 boards with relays and various sensors.

@altec
yung TS100 saka TS80 ang mga top of the line portables ngayon. pero mahal.  kung pang hobbyist mas okay na yung mga t12 tip based irons. makakabuo ka na ng less than 1k.

@WallyWest
8W lang talaga yan. pero sabihin ko sa iyo same performance sila ng dahua 60w ko kapag maliliit na joints lang. with discount, 128 pesos lang kuha ko 2 weeks ago . free shipping pa. pero ngayon medyo tumaas na yata. kakatuwa lang
