concerned about buying this TV online
Good morning everyone. Back in 2009 and thanks to the great advice on this forum I purchased the LN55A950D1F. Sadly, it has the dreaded black horizontal lines on it now and needs to be replaced. I have settled on the UN60F8000 as a replacement, but being a 2013 model it is not in stock anywhere around here so I have to purchase it online. I see all of these websites that I have never heard of offering this unit for considerably less than the more well-known retailers, so I was wondering if anyone has any experience purchasing from the likes of Abe's, East Coast TV, etc. I am the type of person who likes the comfort of buying from a brick and mortar or a Best Buy online in case of problems with the product, but in this case that is not an option and I am scared to death of dropping this much money and getting burned, but at the same time $600-$700 in savings is attractive enough for me to at least explore it and I know you guys are the right folks to ask! I did do a search and could only find reference to Pauls TV who is out of stock.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
