re: Samsung Q90T QLED - gpburdell
[quote]Sadly they're just okay TVs. Serious blooming issues like crazy hold them back significantly. The Q90r and even Q80r from 2019 are still decently better.[/quote] That's surprising; it supposedly has ~15x the number of dimming zones so blooming should be alot less. Btw I have a 65 Q80R ...

re: Refinancing with BETTER - gpburdell
There are two recent mortgage threads that mention Better. I refinanced with Better 2 weeks ago; got a 30 year @ 2.25% for 0.83 points. Closed in exactly two weeks and was easiest process I've seen. A friend of mine closed in 10 days with them last week. I had heard about Better a month ago...

re: Periodic Internet Time Outs - Home Network - gpburdell
Does this happen on wired devices or only wifi? The next time this happens plug a laptop into your router and see if it still works over an ethernet cable. If it does then it's your wifi. If it doesn't, try plugging directly into your ISP modem and see if that works. If it does, then it's your ...

re: Mortgage lenders don't care about bank statements? - gpburdell
I just refinanced and they didn't ask for any bank statements. Though I rolled closing costs in so that may be the reason why as I didn't have to bring any cash to close. I still find it odd as they had no idea how much money I'm spending vs income. Sure my credit report has credit card utiliza...
