"Panda Express Coupon: Free Thai Cashew Chicken (on 10/03) (use printable coupon)."
Seriously? So, whether or not it is hardware or has anything to do with technology has no bearing on what makes it on the list?
Perhaps I need to rethink what Tom's Hardware stands for anymore.... ?

^if you have been around for any amount of time you would know that there deals of the day are just logic buy ads and have almost nothing to do with tech at all. Its just an ad bro, calm down.

One of my long grievances of these ads is that the source does not clearly say it is Logic buy and everything said is a copy paste. In one instance there was a piece of computer hardware that gave a inaccurate description. This being Tom's hardware and them trying to make it look like this is actually all from here and not actually a ad could negatively effect someone.

Back in the day I use to click on ads just to support Tom's now I use a ad-blocker on this site. I miss the old Tom's Hardware.

[citation][nom]lostmyclan[/nom]TCL from china ? no thanks[/citation]

i'm saying no thanks too, but not because its from China... its more along the lines of their failure rates and their really short warranty, which scares me.

TCL 39 inch 1080p 60hz TV for 299? The price sounds great and all but if the picture or sound aren't good then you are basicly thowing your money away and with a price that low i suspect that to be the case and that right there screams quality concerns. TV's are only as good as thier quality. Like the old saying goes you get what you pay for.

China isn't a company.... There are PLENTY of quality Chinese products, in fact the PC you're currently using was probably manufactured in China. (or Taiwan)

Where on the page does it say "paid advertising"? It's presented as editorial content. There's even a byline at the top, and a "source":

'by Marcus Yam - source: Tom's Hardware US'

This is bordering on fraudulent marketing, I think..
