Looks like the pre order prices are coming in at $5000, $6000 and $8000 respectively.

Interesting that the middle 7100 model has the same thinner bezel as the 8000 but is closer in price to the 6400. I wonder what real world PQ differences will be like.

Preorder for the 75F6400 has been set at $4500 and is part of the UPP so theoretically can't be lower.

However, OneCall - both on their site and via Amazon - is selling it for $4000. They had some in stock but are now again on order. Though OneCall is not one of the sites that Amazon and Best Buy will match, I've had very good experience with OneCall in the past for receivers, speakers, and misc stuff.

Also, if you insist on Best Buy, you can always try to get the store manager to match. Depending on what kind of month it's been, etc. you never know.

Interesting...OneCall now has it listed (still back ordered) but for the same $4500 as everywhere else. I wonder if they got wrist slapped by Samsung for the $4000 price, or if it was a pricing error. If the latter, they seem to be honoring the price as I've not yet heard otherwise...

I think they only sold the 4 originally listed as in stock so it's not that costly an error in the grand scheme of things vs the ire they'd raise by trying to invalidate the orders at that price.

Anyway it'll be interesting to see where pricing goes from here, especially with Vizio's new 70" and 80" sets imminent, and a bunch of 4K sets from various mfrs thereafter.

Seems that this deal is expired now. At the time of my posting, the inventory count showed 8.

I quickly called Amazon and they verified this product price at ratuken.com and price matched for the order I placed.

How did you get an Amazon price match? It only gives me the option to report a lower price.

Before placing order, I called Amazon customer service and told them that there is a lower price at Ratuken.com. Once they verified, they offered the same price to apply to my order. When I placed my order online while still on the phone, they reduced the total on the order.

So with UPP, basically no chance of getting this much cheaper than 4k? Unless Samsung decides to do a sale? I don't think I can wait until black friday to buy a TV unfortunately. I will likely be buying at the beginning of football season to hopefully get one of those sales.

- Klipsch RF-82 ii, RC-62 ii, RS-52 ii
- Klipsch RW-12D
- Sony HW50es
- Firehawk G3
- Denon 2113

Probably true. Amazon offers 2% back as credit, so $80 which isn't bad. Plus use a cc with good points etc and that also helps.

Really don't want to wait until Black Friday for the 6400. Any hope for a 4th of July sale? Gotta have it before football season. Figure I could try out the Rvu stuff with this tv and my Directv genie.

Looks like a hanful of folks have it for $3599, not much better than the $36xx they had it for not too long ago, but a step in the right direction...

I am about to buy the 55F7100 and I work at BestBuy. I look forward to it very much because in its class it is one of the best pictures you can buy for the price. As for the price issues you all should know that buying from amazon is crazy because most retailers price match amazon I know BestBuy does. Plus you get rewardzone points for your purchase which saves you even more than amazon. Please let me know what any of you new purchasers think of the television.

True, you guys do price match but don't forget to figure tax into the equation. Many online retailers don't charge it and include free shipping so even with the price match, buying online comes out to a much better deal. Also, the free shipping often includes "white glove" service where they will bring the unit into the house, assemble the stand, and plug it up to make sure there are no obvious defects. Does BB do that...for free? Just trying to explain where a lot of people are coming from with their purchasing decisions. Not trying to start a fight.

I've looked at the F7100 as well but I just can't bring myself to get a TV with Active 3D.

Just a PSA for anyone considering the 75" sets. Turns out that Cinema Black, the primary (real) feature difference between the 6400 and 7100 lines, is NOT included on the 75" 7100.

When I compared the 46" 6400 and 7100 I definitely noticed the improvement with Cinema Black (it darkens the lbx bars on 2.35:1 content) but thought it not worth the $1000 premium at 75". Turns out it wouldn't have even been there had I paid the price!

I had intended to purchase the Samsung UN75F8000 this month, and just noticed that the UPP (Unilaterally Priced Product) price jumped from $5,999.99 to $6,999.99! I have never heard of a TV going back up in price, after a price drop. The only explanation that I can provide, is an increased sales demand due to the start of the NFL season. I sure hope the price comes back down quickly, because the "unauthorized" resellers are a lot more appealing now (East Coast TV = $5,439).

BTW... the UN75F7100 price increased by $500, to $4,999.99; and the UN75F6400 remains the same, at $3,499.99.

Yes, I noticed the price increase as well. Unlike the 55 and 65 inch F9000 models which enjoyed a permanent price decrease, seems that the F8000 and F7100 only had a temporary promotional discount.

I'm very happy that I exchanged my 75F7100 for a 75F8000 last week, before the price increase. Saved a nice chunk of change, especially since my local Best Buy matched Pauls TV no sales tax promotion.

Congratulations on getting a great TV, at a fantastic price. smile.gif

I would have certainly purchased the UN75F8000 last week, had I known that the price was going to increase by $1,000! Samsung didn't give any indication that the $6,000 cost was a "temporary promotional discount", though. I'm quite disappointed... because unfortunately, I don't think I can personally justify paying $7,000 + tax for this TV. Now I have to decide whether to purchase from an "unauthorized" reseller, or wait for the price to drop (again). Hmmm...

I have to believe that Samsung will drop the price on the F8000 line again soon, especially since 4k sets are seemingly being released by every manufacturer. Hopefully you'll be able to combine the price drop with a retailer who'll match the Pauls TV no sales tax promo.

One tip though. On the Samsung product page for the UN75F800 (http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN75F8000AFXZA) you'll see a little box that states: "Add any Galaxy Tab 3 to your order, and receive a $200 discount off the combined purchase price - now through 9/28/13 only!." I recall last week the promo box read that the $5999 price was a special that ended earlier this week. Based on the end date of the current promotion, I'm sure a new promotion will start on 9/29. Maybe your local AD has an idea on what the upcoming promo will be. I'll ask my salesperson and see if he has any info.

Yeah, you're right. The previous Samsung offer stated "Price includes $2000 limited time savings - now through 9/7/13 ONLY!!" If only I had noticed that last week! It certainly would have been better than $200 off a tablet that I don't need. I suppose I'll just have to be patient, and hope for a price reduction on Sept. 29.

It's funny though guys. I have to admit that had I seen that blurb about the savings being for a limited time only, I don't think I would've believed it. I think I would have assumed that after that date they would simply lower the MSRP so the "savings" went away but the out the door price remained the same. Seems more in keeping with the games they usually play. Anyway, it is strange the way they've continued to shift the prices on these 75" sets up and down.
