I paid $79 for the 2 cables, so they are not "free". The TV itself is listed separately at $3049 on the itemized invoice from ielectrica along with the cables and the extended warranty. So I think...

I bought my TV directly from ielectrica not Ebay. They sent me an email after the purchase. Then they called me when the Chase Visa card refused the purchase until I verified I had ordered it, and...

I bought a LG OLED65E6P from ielectrica for $3049 and it ships today, using my Chase Freedom Visa CC. Now I find that same TV on a couple websites for $2200. The card says I can get up to $500 back...

Long time lurker on this thread. So it looks like the OLED-E is $1250 more than the B and C models right now online 65". I'd prefer 3D capability even though I don't have many 3D movies. But on my...

Haven't posted in awhile. I have the ES8000 with the original EVO Kit installed in 2013. And I cannot connect to my wireless router. All my devices connect (BDP, Apple TV). When I try via Network, it...

Some of the best movies I've seen on my TV are 3D, they look excellent. Maybe Vizio got out of the 3D business because it's a bad TV. Not so with Samsung.

The cable company can open another connection in the house, as if you're getting cable hooked up in another room to another TV. They charge a little for that, but not as much as another internet...

Sorry to beat a dead horse, but no, my position on the ES 8000 forum in 2012 was that I tried various people's settings and still use one I thought looked best. And I'd do that again if I had a 4K...

The age old adage that you can't use other people's settings because everyone's TV is so unique is sort of a traditional forum line, kind of like "it's Bush's fault". Sharing settings doesn't wash on...

That's very different than the first Samsung TV forum I got on when I got mine in 2012. That was all about sharing settings, that's why people went there. Some people used a Disney Wow disc, some...

Yeah, and you don't have to buy the TV there nor do you have to be a Costco member (if you are you get an extra year). Best Buy warrantees are really expensive.

Man, I bet you guys will be glad when you can just freaking buy the disc, pop into player, and rock on Wayne. I don't think I could manage the patience for that download, unlock, load up crap..:eek:

Does my heart good to see this stuff lol :D. I'm SO glad I waited out the UHD thing. My stepson just bought a Samsung 65" something-or-other for $4k in San Diego. Mostly a gamer.

I almost forgot about quadraphonic. I didn't have enough $$ for it but it was cool. I had a very early Surround Sound VCR outfitted with a Yamaha sub ($400, still sounds great) and rear speakers back...

When I first got my TV we rented and bought a lot of 3D, and it looks fabulous on the ES8000. But we just sort of fell off the wagon, haven't watched on in probably a year. For some reason the...

Sound like this SEK 3500 isn't quite ready for prime time, at least for a lot of you. My guess is this won't be totally sorted out until the start rolling out the UHD disc players and discs. Is that...

Nah, it was horrible compared to the Harmony. The little touchpad is kind of a gimmick IMO. And the horrible Blaster thing was needing to reconnect all the time which was a PIA. I got rid of that...

What he means is the SEK3500 turns your 2014 set into a 2015 model JS9500 just as the SEK2500 turned the XXXX model into the HU9000. The very first SEK supposedly turned my 2012 ES8000 into the...

So HDMI 2.0a isn't available yet even on the 2015 flagship. What will HDMI 2.0a enable you to do that you cannot do already? Sorry if I'm a dunce, but I'm just curious.
