What was your last purchase

Recommended Posts

Nope, it's not a Tardis. I do sought of have one of those, for my model railway. It's a Police Box, but it's not a licensed Doctor Who product, but it could get away as a Tardis, I do believe.

After my mums funeral I went out and bought a £1200 amazing TV, it’s mind blowing!

Wow! My family got a new TV some time around and it probably doubled the height and width of the old. It feels so strange for the first week to have a huge tv...

I already had a pretty nice 4K HDR TV, but now I’ve moved in with my dad since the passing of my mum, I wanted a nice TV in the living room. Not just nice, but way OT, OLED is just phenomenal compared to LCD or IPS screens because blacks are actually black as pixels turn off. Also the TV is so thin, like mm thick, it’s crazy.

The HDR is also on another level compared to my other TV, and that one wasn’t exactly low end. OLED reminds me of plasma TV, it sucks that that tech didn’t take off as it was so much better than current tech except OLED.

I hope the funeral went well and that's a lot of money for a TV. I wouldn't spend that on a TV. I don't even watch much TV.

I don't watch TV much, but I do game a lot, a top end TV makes the world of difference for the picture quality.

Bus tickets for 2.2e each day as I can't be bothered to pay for a ticket that lasts a month.

Tickets that last a month are cheaper overall than paying for a ticket every time you board a bus.

There is nothing more valuable than a bus ticket considering it even beats the price of my T300RS which I can't use 🙂

You can't define it exactly because people have different interpretations of value, so people will always judge things in different ways.

However, I would personally say something:

- that you don't buy that often (e.g. set of headphones)
- out of the ordinary for you to buy (e.g. a new exhaust for my car)
- new that you're truly excited about (e.g. tickets to a gig)

As I said, people will have their own interpretations of this, but I think that this thread recently has seen a lot of the same stuff repeated *cough* Hornby *cough* and it's getting a tad repetitive.

OK. I thought model railway products are out of the ordinary, as I have never seen anyone post about model railway purchases, apart from myself. 😞
