Samsung UN60D7050 (Costco)

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Right now, Costco is offering a bundle with the TV (apparently 7050 is the Costco version of the 7000), 2 pairs of 3D glasses, and a Blu-ray 3D player for $2,999. Does anybody remember what the lowest price they have seen for the D7000 series has been, and if this is a decent deal for a B&M store? I realize that Amazon and all the online stores are beating this price right now but I'm tired of buying huge objects online at this point after going through the saga of my Samsung PN64D7000s and trying to get people to deliver the things when I can be at home to receive them. I don't really need the player as I use my PS3, and I know the glasses are only worth $30 each.

I have been tracking this display during my Costco visits. If the price is right I may bite. Before Christmas Costco had this TV down to about $2400 (give or take a few bucks) with the same combo. I waited to see if the price gets a little better but after Christmas it shot up dramatically to $2,999.

The TV looks good and has a lot of features. However I feel its still way overpriced. My Costco has not sold very many and now that the Holidays are over I think it will sell even less so. The current deal runs until Jan 21st or so. I expect them to be blowing this out after this date but who knows?

I don't think I would pay $2,999 for it as I can get a 70" Sharp 3D for less at the moment. Yeah PQ may not be as good but its close and the 70" screen is massive next to the 60". My breaking point for the 60" Samsung D7050 is $1999 for the combo. Probably dreaming but with them stacked to the roof its what they will have to do to move them. They recently moved the D7050's to the front of the electronics department but so far it has not helped. Its just to expensive for most consumers.

The D6450 seems to sell much better. It was $1,999 before Christmas but now its $2499 give or take a few bucks.

Yeah, the D6450 was at $2399 when I was at Costco earlier. I'm not that interested in the D6450, as it doesn't have the LED Motion Plus (backlight scanning) which grants the D7000/8000 substantial motion resolution improvements over a constantly-on backlight.

TBH, Costco has never really moved their higher-end TVs very quickly, people don't think of Costco when they think of expensive HT gear. Too bad as Costco throws in the extra year of warranty at no charge. I wonder why Costco continues to carry the high-end stuff, I'm glad that they do, but if they want to sell it, they'll need to be more aggressive on pricing.

The expiration on the deal is also 1/21 at mine. I guess I'll just visit Costco on 1/22 and see what happened.

Considering that Fry's was blowing out the Samsung PN64D7000 that's I'm returning because of buzzing for $1700 today, one day only, I'm expecting we'll see some firesaling of LED-LCDs before the Super Bowl too.

Damn, this price appears to be dead. It comes up at $2,541.99 at checkout right now.

Costco had it before Xmas:2699.00 with blueray and glasses. We just bought the 60" 7000 at bestbuy.com for 2121.99, with blueray and glasses: 2121.99. You had to put it in cart to see that price. However, I just checked and it back to $3000.00.

I found out costcos current price of 2999.99 will not change until Jan 21st.

Hope this helps

Was at Costco today and amazingly they did not have any UN60D7050's in stock. All boxes gone and the display was absent. Just 2 days ago they had about 20 on hand. I somehow really doubt they sold them all just like that. I bet they sent them to a different Costco that is moving them.

Hopefully it comes back as I have had this display on my radar screen if the price is right. I doubt it will get a lot cheaper then what we have seen it at already but always hope. My 67" Samsung DLP started at $3,500 back in the day and eventually closed out at $1,800. So anything is possible now days however that was different tech and a different time period.

Was in Costco again this morning getting some stuff for work. Interestingly they got the UN60D7050 back on the shelves but the sale price has been removed. Right now its listed at $3,299 with nothing else. Very strange because supposedly the last offer ran until January 21st.

My hunch is this display is about to have an awesome deal far better then what we have seen lately. Sometimes they are listed at full price briefly before a major price drop. Sometimes anyway and just a hunch!!

My "Buy it Now" price is $1,999 but will settle for $2199 if they actually offer it at that price. In today's market $3,299 for a 60" is just to much. I don't care what features it has or 3D. Especially with the recent news that most consumers are passing on 3D so its not like this TV is worth the premium for 3D alone and its hard to ignore its faults. However Samsung still makes awesome displays that seem to be a few steps better then others. Still this TV looks foolish next to the $1,199 sharp 60 inch next to it. Most consumers would laugh the Samsung off and put the Sharp on the cart. The price has to fall on these things.

Strangely the 60" 6450 is also marked at full price of $2,699 just for the TV. Costco must be working with Samsung to increase the rebate offer.

I'm not in the market for a 60" being the Sam 52" in the office just fits.
But I'll check Costco here in Maple Grove Mn, North of Mpls for the heck of it to see if this item exists and what if any deal is going on.

My Costco has the bundle for $2869.98



I'm debating if I should just get the 55" (UN55D7050) for $719.99 less. Less the 3D blu-ray and size. $2149.99



What do you think?
post #11 of 29
The 55" is pretty hard to beat for the price its selling at. The 60" gives you about 30% more screen area and looks noticeably bigger when next to one another but is far more expensive.

I would say if the 55" suits your viewing distance needs then go for that one.

My Costco still has the 60" marked at $3199.00 Asked the employee working that department what the story was and he said they are out of the Samsung 3D Blu Ray players so the rebate can't be in affect. Supposedly more are on the way and the sale will continue. As for a lower price nobody knows but the employee said it is looking really expensive to most customers. Since its a 2011 D model the price may fall very soon but again who knows!!

I saw the UN557050 for $1999 at Costco over the weekend. And I like the traditional flat stand rather than the claw style on the 7000.
post #13 of 29
Was at Costco today and they now have this display marked down to $2,699 without any sort of Blu Ray player combo. I think its still a tad over priced especially considering what it was selling for before Christmas "With a 3D Blu Ray player". Still it is a step in the right direction I guess.

Right now the Sharp 70" models have it beat in value and size by a large margin. Not even sure performance is really all that different in most real world situations either Although the PQ on this Samsung unit is pretty good and motion processing seems better then the Sharp units.

I still think my buy it now price is $1,999 but willing to settle for $2,199 if it ever gets there.
post #14 of 29
I bought the combo on Friday. Did not open the box yet, but it looks like I'll be returning to Costco. I don't really need the 3D player, I'll just use my PS3. Thanks for the update longhaul747.

I was at my local Sears tonight just browsing around. Usually not the biggest fan of Sears as they always seem to be short on inventory and are seldom price competitive. However its the only electronics store in the mall and I check it out from time to time when my wife drags me to the big mall

Anyways of interest they have the 60" D8000 for $2,799. Not sure what the difference is over what Costco version of the D7000 but right now its only $100 more then what you get at Costco. I am sure it offers enough of a difference to justify the slightly higher price.

Ok, I returned the 3D player and received a price adjustment for the TV. My wallet is $170.00 thicker now. Went to look if they had anymore UN60D7050, SOLD OUT! Clerk said that they are not bringing in anymore.

Oh my goodness your SOLD OUT comment is making me nervous. Still on the fence about this one and thinking about it for a few more days. My Costco as of yesterday still had at least 10 of these on the floor. However Costco is famous for moving a lot of product fast. So it could be there today and gone tomorrow.

I am feeling cautious but slightly more optimistic about the economy. My wife and I were so concerned we cut back so much we now have a budget surplus and no debt with a load of cash in the bank. It just might be a good time to rid myself of my recession purchased end of the world is coming Sharp 60" 78U model. Its not a half bad display and I consider it excellent for the price but its no videophile grade display. I have been thinking of something better ever since I bought it.

I was at my local Costco on Sunday. They had it for $2,699 with no Blu-ray player.

I'm going to go back this Sunday and see if they have a Super Bowl week price on it.
post #19 of 29
Just came back from Costco(Covington), and they have one on display and one box in front of it. They could have a mountain of them in the back, but who knows.

I'm not sure how great the bundle is, being glasses and a Qwerty remote, but that's all that you get for $2700.

Quick update in case anyone is interested. I've been looking at the Samsung 46" - 60" models from afar at Costco. I saw the 46" non-3D was $1199 on sale, and that was very tempting. But I like 3D, and thought MAYBE if I saw a good deal on the 55"...

Well today, they had the 60" 6450 for $2299 with the 3D Blu-Ray player, and the 60" 7050 for $2779 with the Blu-Ray player included.

The 6450 had Episode 1 playing on it and looked just sensational. The 7050 had some Costco video playing over and over, and was impressive as well.

I'm not sure what to make of the Clear Motion Rate. I thought this might be improved rates over the 120Hz or 240Hz that have been offered before these sets, but looking on Amazon, they seemed to indicate they don't really do 720 or 960Hz, so maybe that's not such a big deal.

On thing is for sure. Costco has a limited number of 7050 in-stock, where the 8000 is only available elsewhere. Wondering what to do, so I came to AVSForum to figure it out.
post #21 of 29
I'm trying to decide between the 7050 and the 6450 as well. Right now, looks like they are $2699 and$2199 respectively with no blu-ray player. Sounds like I should wait because these prices are still not quite as good as before Christmas.

I'd bee cautious with the 6000 series 3D from Samsung:

Can anyone tell me if the UN60D7050 is still sold at Costco? I don't have a membership but if they are still selling that model I can ask a friend to help me get it with his. Also the cost if anyone knows. Thanks!

costco, lewisville, tx had 3 left in stock, priced @ 2300 or so.

I recently bought a 7050 at Costco for $1579.
I was told it was a current model but then I found out that it has already been out for a few years. I saw a 7450A on the Online website. $2100 with a soundbar thrown in. Has quad processor. Would this TV be any better than the 7050 that I paid $1579 for? I have been searching online to get info but it seems that only Costco sells it. Is it possible it has another model name.
Thanks,
Bob
post #26 of 29

Give the full model number and maybe could help

The letter pre the model designates the year. F= 2013

                                                                              E=2012

                                                                              D=2011

And so on

post #27 of 29
The model is UN55F7050AF
I guess it is a current model. Could it mean that the model first came out in 2011 but this tv was manufactured in 2013.
I was told that if the 7450 costs significantly more it is not worth it to upgrade. The 7450 has quad processor and 920 motion. I only care about PQ, not the apps, gestures, talking to it etc.

Bob, the F is a 2013 model television. You began your comments on a D series thread under "Great Found Deals"....this thread began in 2011 and covers the 2011 D series. This thread has theoretically expired.
post #29 of 29
Thanks Lazy Boy,
I don't remember posting in 2011.
I bought the F model 7050 last week at Costco.
My wife was not convinced it was the latest and wanted to return. I can reassure her that it is current but she may still want to upgrade to the 7450 model which I believe is equivalent to the 7500 model but I am not positive.
thanks again
Bob
