Does this seem like a good price?
Is this as good as I am going to get at this price for an UHD 4K TV?
Will I have to also buy the latest One Connect to get the best from this TV for HD Cable, Netflix, Blu-ray, and Xbox One gaming?
Thanks in advance.
Abes is a scam site. You put in an order, they charge your card, and then either they don't ship it and you call in, or they call you telling you that you need to pay $2-300 more for shipping "insurance."
I read all the rumors, but found precisely the same for myself when I called in. Go ahead and try yourself. Just call first (don't order online), and ask them how much.
I've read some anecdotes (even on this site) that people got their orders after pushing, but I wouldn't risk it. Even if you do get your TV, I doubt these guys would help you out if something goes wrong. They sound incredibly shady over the phone.
Other sites like Abes running the same scam: Niceelectronics, Buysquad, EastCoastTVs
They all run out of NY/NJ
There is only one good site coming out of that area with insane prices. Not as low as them, but they are even better than Amazon when it comes to shipping and customer service. BuyDig is legit.
