Sharp 80" pricing - Page 42

post #1231 of 1605
We got the set today from ABT for $3700 out the door with a delivery. Seems like a pretty decent price for a local purchase.

Not too bad...I paid $3219 at Sears locally in July and no sales tax in NH on the 632

but your price is not obtainable by 99% of the people out there, you got your price because a manager gave you some partial refund if i recall correctly/

Yes, I got $200 off...I originally paid $3419 but got it for $3219

You guys have gotten lower than $3419?

I picked up a 632 from Buydig for $3419. Awaiting delivery now.

Their sale price was $3799, but they sent me a 10% off e-mail that reduced it to the above price. No tax for me & free shipping.

Coupon code was good for 24 hours only, so I jumped.smile.gif

$28XX from Magnolia AV on a their 90 day price match policy when I brought Costco's 632 close- out price to their attention.
I also did the same thing Over 5 years ago on a 57" Sharp with Magnolia, with another competitor,
I always buy from them on any major purchase, it has paid off well for me..YMMV...

Where did you find the info on the Costco closeout to give BB for matching? I looked around and cannot find it and my local costco only seems to have the 633U.

While I am still working through the 90 pages of the owners thread, biggrin.gif , I have pretty much decided on this set and am hot on the trail of this tv but want the best price.

Folks, has anyone had a good luck buying from Clevland Plasma? Seems highly reputable, well reviewed but I am for some reason getting answers in 2-3 days, tried calling too. I am interested in Elite 70" and Value Electronics is expecting stock in 3 weeks, but I know nothing about Value Electronics other than positive reviews here. Cleveland Plama ratings are high and when you are to spend that much on a TV you want piece of mind. Let m know about buying experience with CP. I have time and have been deciding on the set 2 months now, so 2 more weeks will not hurt, especially for a good price and service.

search is your friend

I did search (not a helpful statement about "search being a friend") and many are happy with Cleveland Plasma but my experience with CP was not amazing, Chris did respond to me via email but messages are super short even though to the point. I am more concerned that he did not return my phone calls, what if I need real help from him on delivery and post sale? If anyone dealt with CP post-sale how was it?

I purchased my Sharp 632U this month from AllTimeTVs online for under 3500$. It was a very successful purchase....friendly, non-aggressive salesman who knew his stuff, great price, no hidden costs. They shipped the day after I ordered the tv, and I purchased a White Glove Delivery so that I could see the tv running before the shipping guys left the house.

I was going to by locally, but Best Buy was reluctant to match online prices and so full of themselves and overpriced on their warranty that I said the hell with it and researched a reliable online seller.

It was really the best online experience I've ever had with a big ticket item. There is a small freight handling/insurance fee, but it is clearly mentioned online in the details...it's amazing how many negative reviews are posted due to people's lack of reading comprehension skills these days.

Anyways, this very nice, and huge tv is still on sale online at AllTimeTVs as of this posting on Wed. Nov. 21. They are a real company offering this great tv at an amazing price, and shipped mine off about as quickly as was humanly possible.

I am currently attempting to price a LC80LE844U and I E-mailed Cleveland Plasma. I E-mailed my request Wednesday but since I failed to call Wednesday I "missed" the Black Friday Sales price. Chris E-mails me a quote $100.00 MORE that the buy-it-now price they have listed on E-bay. I have watched the AVS forums for a long time as I build up theater room and was under the impression that Cleveland Plasma was the first place to price. Does not appear to be the case. Amazon listing beats the price from Chris by several hundred bucks. (and he beats himself on E-bay).

Nice find. I kept one in my cart at ectv who fluctuate their prices a great deal. At one point with the 2% off thing it dipped just below $4k. Nice price indeed.

Hey wait now, that's a great price to take to a reputable dealer to price match.rolleyes.gif
I wouldn't buy a $100 microwave oven from those guys. smile.gif
post #1249 of 1605
Buydig has been around for a fairly long time and I have purchased a decent amount of camera gear and electronics from them with no issues whatsoever. I really cannot explain why their resellerratings entry has gone to crap lately, though, but it is still 8 out of 10. I would buy from them through ebay without hesitation, but I understand why people may be more cautious.
post #1250 of 1605
I have bought from them before but the reviews certainly look a little intimidating. However, PM to your hearts content !!!!!!!!!!!! I would smile.gif

It's amazing that they had 31 available at that price.

I wonder it the supply chain from Sharp is ramping up.
post #1253 of 1605
Just bought the 632 from Amazon - shipped by "Electonix Depot". I like Amazon - as they'll stand up for the purchase...

$3699 delivered - no tax (still in transit - should get it Thursday). CostCo was $4K (+100 for extended warranty) + local tax (at $320!)

Am buying the Sharp extended additional 3 year warranty at $220 (sharp USA direct sales) once it arrives...

Looked on Amazon, but couldn't find the display being sold by that seller....

Amazon is just the payment processor in this purchase and the seller and distributor are not Amazon. Any issues and you have to work it out with the seller, not Amazon.
post #1256 of 1605
It may not be Amazon - but I'm SURE Amazon will have my back if there are issues...

As an aside - yes - the deal I got is no longer there (now it's $3949 delivered)...

Edit: Just noticed Abe's of Maine (very reputable) has it for $3717 delivered...

Yea, I was looking at Abe's....if I ordered from them, compared to my local Best Buy, I would end up saving around $350....hmmmm.....wonder if it's worth the risk buying from out of state....
post #1258 of 1605
My experience is basically this, I bought out of state from US-appliance.com and their price was right on CyberMonday but ... their shipping agent lost that TV, I mean it is nowhere to be found, HomeDirect shipping/delivery called saying Seller never provided a TV to them while HomeDirect tracking says it was picked up from the Seller 10 days ago and more so HomeDirect even called a week ago to schedule a delivery today... US-Appliance.com is very supportive, they work with me and call to follow up and even sent an email to explain and document, I think US-Appliance.com is the honest seller that is genuinely trying to help me but when buying online these are the risks if not the Seller then delivery company will fail... for one of mine poor experiences with HomeDirect there are 100s of great ones, so this is just my tough luck but I must say that I never bought anything that big and expensive unseen online and so far I cannot say it was smooth. I am glad I bought from Authorized Sharp dealer - US-appliance.com but I have been without a TV for 2+ weeks now since I sold my old one (needed cash to buy this Sharp) and now me and wife + 4 of kids are staring at the white wall and they are not happy. I am not a very popular guy in the house for trying to save over BestBuy frown.gif Only buy online if you are saving over $500+

Abe's is very reputable... Only problem is waiting the 5 days to travel across the country... Don't forget you save tax (which in CA is huge). Sharp Direct sells an additional 3 year warranty for $220...

My TV was bought through Amazon at Electronix - which I found out was really Paul's TVs - which was shipped by Home Direct. I couldn't get an appointment for delivery for 5 days, so we went and picked it up directly.

To anyone thinking about picking an 80" TV up, it's really big (box dimensions 12" x 49" x 80") - we strapped it to the top of a Ford Flex for a nervous ride home - it's not going to fit inside any SUV I know of...

One other key to know - they don't supply the mounting screws (4 points on the back of TV) - they are metric 8, course thread, 12mm (I used 16mm which was just right after mount, washer, lock washer).

LOVE the TV - it replaced the 60" Sharp we bought last year :-) Pick of 60" vs 80" below...
