$1,750 on some janky websites with free shipping, and Best Buy will price match that.

For the 65".... pretty legit.




Just got a laptop, Canon 6D, iPhone X, and the Apple Watch v3 within the last 2 months or so, so I need to cool my jets for a minute.

Crap! I just got my samsung 65" quantum dot for $1600. I think I can still return it to costco

nevermind, just checked Fry's, that B7A is $2600 up here in WA. Costco has the same tv for $2300. I'll stick with my quantum leap tv, it's almost 3 times brighter than the OLED.

The Fry's deal was black Friday only but I'm sure something will be out soon. Check out what bill has to say about the c7p. That's a better set.

yeah, the one at costco is a B7. There doesn't seem to be any major differences between the B7 and C7 besides the C7 having a subwoofer and possibly better sound. But I never use the TV for sound so that isn't a benefit.

I'm super happy with our KS8000, so I'm not planning on actually trading it in. (I guess it's only a little more than twice as bright as the OLED, 1470nits).

I bought the one at Costco for 2350 w 7 year warranty and took it back.

Costco has the b7p which has the better speakers with a sub compared to the b7a. I don't use the TV's speakers so saving $550 was my priority.

C7P has a “sub” and Dolby Atmos

Fairly pointless since everyone should be hooking it up to a receiver with great speakers anyways.

I agree, why would anyone get a top line tv and not have a matching surround setup?

Daddy got himself a present. 82” samsung 8000 UHD LED.

So far I’m happy with it, but need to get colors and levels adjusted properly. The only downside is the screen is so crisp that I can see every flaw in the content. So HD stream content is only so-so, with a lot of artifacts, motion blur, and dropped frames. Blu Ray is spectacular tho!

I wish it was just a TINY bit bigger. It doesnt quite fill the space enough, but maybe after i do the full build-out in the Den it will be alright. Surprisingly, I couldnt find a larger screen of comparable or higher quality. The only thing bigger is the 105” samsung for $150k, and there’s an 85” 7000 samsung for about the same price. Annoying.

Awesome upgrade congrats. When i upgraded my tv this year that 82” was not a available at the time. Now I see it on BB for a great price. I got the 75” Ks9000 instead but both are awesome TVs.
