LG77C9 from Silverstarav for $2200?

Just ordered the 77C9 from Silverstarav. Spoke to the guy, he said he has put my order through. Anyone else know if this site is legit? I know one person got their TV, but anyone else? My card has not been charged yet. Anyone actually order from here and received their TV?

That's at least $1300 less than what Greentoe will accept. I don't know anything about the site, but if it sounds too good to be true...

Not going to happen. They’re going to call you back and “upgrade” your order.

Has it happened to you as well? What was your experience? Some guy on the other post said he got his.

Tbh, I was kind of speaking out of my rear end but, I've read enough horror stories on here and other places to know if its too good to be true, it ain't. I would buy one at that price in a heartbeat if I thought for a second it would go well.

It just boggles my mind that some people still fall for this. I mean, seriously...what is wrong with people.

I can always call my cc company and just ask them to block the transactions and change the card, not a biggie. I have heard people get TV's from them so wanted to see how legit it was, hence asked if anyone else ordered from them.

We want a play-by-play with email screenshots and recorded phone calls!

J/k and good luck.

Ordered our first OLED (a 55 B6) from JoesAV a few years ago for about $1,000 less than the next best legitimate offering and with free shipping. We did the research, read the horror stories, understood the risk, paid with an Amex and crossed our fingers. The next day, we got an email asking to call them to confirm the order. We called, they aggessively tried to upsell us into paying for warranty, "white glove" service, and shipping - which was totally ridiculous as it was advertised as free...we declined every upsell and told them to ship the TV for free or we file a chargeback. And if that TV didn't arrive within 30 days, we file a chargeback. I don't think we were ever given a tracking number.

It took 29 days for the TV to arrive. No issues to report.

YMMV.

Oppo 203 - PS4 - Xbox One S - Roku Ultra - Apple TV 4K
400+ UHD and counting...

Ahh thanks for that info! I havent gotten a call or email yet and they havent charged my account either. I called the guy to ask and he said they will ship it next week and its a 8-bit panel and is coming from Korea.
