Samsung KS9k, any other TV model Purchase Online

Looking to buy this online today. Was set for 'joesav.com' until I read the reviews, apparently the entire company is a sham. niceelectronics.com looks similar, and abesofmaine (who are known to me) have the next best price and a smaller number of similar reviews. Anyone have experience with any of these companies? I want to order today and actually receive what I ordered

The Best Price is usually Not The Best Deal.

JoesAV has the exact same street address as East Coast TVs (a notorious Bait-and-Switch seller), and Nice and Abes are also in the same BS category. Pay strict attention to all the Negative reviews on Yelp etc as these are not faked. Sellers like this do have low prices, and you may actually end up receiving a TV, but not as the low price they listed it for.

One very common tactic used by such sellers is when you call to order the TV, they tell you that it's a "gray market model" and that "it does not have a warranty" then they'll upsell you on the USA model for more money. If you tell them that you'll take the gray market model at the low price then they end up not having it in stock. They also tell you that you have to buy shipping insurance (which is a scam) or upsell you to so-called "White Glove Delivery" (also kinda scammy).

Just stick with known reputable retailers if possible, much less risk and grief.
