We play Xbox one s

Most of time is series and movies via Netflix and other streaming

Also have emby server
Then 4K @ 120 won't matter to you because the Xbox One S is not a next gen console (it doesn't support 4K @ 120)

If you plan on upgrading that to the Series S|X or PS5 then look for that feature. If not, then don't bother.

Thanks will have a look there
You don't have to use them as a bible, but they can help you identify things that may not make the sale worth it. I normally look through their things to get a general idea for what the product is suited, its caveats and then weight it up against what I want and can afford.

100%. It's a tough decision. On the one hand entry Samsung QLEDs are pretty shiitty with atrocious build quality, but would provide 10" larger screen which certainly adds to the experience compared to a 55" OLED which gives you the best picture quality, best motion handling, best build quality, and the best TV OS and arguably remote.

+decent cable. Doesn't matter if you have the tv and the console but shitty "4k" cable / 4k like cable. In fact I am using a 8k cable between my nv shield and tv...

Hisense looks much better than that particular Samsung

Seems like a lot of money needs to be spent for a decent 65"

Indeed. I was very lucky to get my 65" Q7FN at R21,999. Last of the decent mid to high-end Samsungs with great built quality. And One Connect Box...

Amazon US. If you buy a $50 digital gift card, you get a $15 discount code, but only for first time buyers.

Obviously you need a MyUS or Aramex GS US address for delivery.

Those things are pretty sht though.
I have one on my car keys and most of the time it can't be found despite being in my pocket, I'd hate to need to rely on it if my keys really were lost.

You do get 2 varieties, I have the cheaper one which is the type in that link and the more expensive ones can only be used with the S20 and up I think, maybe they are better.

Odd, we've had two of the cheaper variety for a while now, purchased from the link above (they were R99 over black friday even, so now we have them on all our keys) and they work like a charm. Only downside is that they only work on Samsung/Galaxy phones (beyond stupid, but ok). Sure they aint airtags, but hey, I have tracked my keys a handful of times now.

Well they work for sure but mine randomly can't be found and it's not a range issue.
