Has anyone purchased a TV from one of these online stores?

Buy Squad, Shop Smart Tvs, or Premiere TVs. I'm trying to find a 75" Samsung TV to replace my projector setupnfor under $2000. These are the only stores which come up in that price range. Has anyone used one if the aforementioned stores? If so, what was your experience with them?

Might want to try looking in the great deals found section. From the names they look like grey market dealers. You are taking a risk especially if they are not authorized. If a deal is too good to be true than it usually is.

Premier TVs site shows a couple dozen Panasonic 2011 and 2012 plasma models in stock and available even though the supply of all these has dried up more than a few years ago.

Buysquad site looks like a scam - they're supposedly stocking dozens of Panasonic and Samsung and even Vizio plasma models going back to 2008 models but that can't possibly be true.

Shopsmart site seems to be new, prices look way too good to be true, i found a half dozen reviews all saying they use bait and switch all with similar stories of the typical up-sell attempts to a more expensive version of the TV they advertised etc.

If the price is too good to be true, it's probably a scam site or a bait and switch seller.

For a big screen display? If they ain't local I ain't buying no matter how good the price is.

If you live by nj or ny. You could call the 800 best buy number. And ask if they could price match with smarter TV. Since they are a local competitor. When I bought the x850c. I did it over the phone because in store they would not do it. Everything came out to 953 total for the x850c with the price match and certificates

Thank you everyone for your advice. Its going to be a bit underwhelming going to a small screen TV after owning a 120" screen and projector. However I am not willing to watch shows and movies in the dark or a dimly lit room for extended periods of time.

Im curious about the 80" Sharp Quattron however Sharp tvs have always disappointed me with their picture quality. So I guess the 75" Samsung is my best bet. $2400 seems to be the cheapest going rate for it. Amazon has a few used models for $2200.

If you have a limited budget I would strongly look at the Vizo M series and if you can wait a month or two the 2015 P series. They will give you some of the best bang for the buck.
