    Default Samsung UN65HU8550 - 65" LED Smart TV - 4K UHDTV

    werthliving.com

    Looking for opinions on this display. You guys helped me out with a display and calibration a few years ago, and I love my Panny GT30. I want to get into a 4K now, because this is probably my last display I will buy for another 3 or so years, and don't want to go that long with old tech. There are a few websites where I can get it for under $2000, which is $1000 less than BB. Is there a reason why its so much cheaper online?

    Seriously? Under $2000? That's nearly hard to believe in all honesty. I'd sure be curious where you found it that cheap. Just curious I guess. About the display, I haven't researched any 4K panels....seems to me there is a bit of progress to be made and certainly prices will come down.

    It seems that the ones that are under $2000 are a model called AU/CA. Not sure what that is yet, did a few searches on it without any luck yet. I am thinking it may be either a commercial model or a international model. BB had it for $2500 last week, this week its $3100. I may wait until the new models come out, and maybe get one on clearance. I can't get myself to pay more than $2500.

    The HU8550 was one of the better 4k LED-LCD sets from 2014. CNET really liked it.

    I'd be really wary of getting it for so cheap, you may be getting a floor model or something from an unauthorized reseller.

    Been emailing with Chris from Cleveland AV, he gave me a good price, not as low as the ones I found online. Many of those companies have terrible reviews. He also said, this is the best 4K in this price range. Probably going to order it this week.

    Probably smart to order now. After checking around some ads it appears Samsung is raising some prices after 2/14. Stellar customer service is always worth a little more money to me. Especially if there is ever a problem down the road.

    Actually, from ValueElectronics. But check around.... it may vary by specific product.
    Red tags means 'limited time only' ... some say 2/14 if you check further.

    Check this price out! Ends midnight tonight..

    UPDATE:
    I should add that Samsung dealers should be following Unified Pricing which makes $1200 a questionable quote. Even if it is from a reputable source. It is not shown as open-box, demo, etc. so not sure how they do that but guess it's over now anyway.
