Any guesses on how low this may go by BF? It seems its back up to $4300 everywhere after spending sometime at $4000, I assume it will go back to $4000 by Black Friday but do you think it will be significantly less? Just debating on when to pull the trigger (I have an Xbox One X coming 11/7 and no 4k tv LOL).

Or, you know, just give Chris @ Cleveland a call and stop waiting for BF. I’m on my third TV from him in addition to other purchases. My Sony should be here this week.

It is a well-known scam site. Search for joesav scam on Google. They are notorious for their bait and switch tactics.

It figures. If it's too good to be true it probably is. Thanks for the heads up.

Any idea when we can expect 2018 models to be released (from all manufacturers not just Sony)?

This may have been asked before, however, did anyone else notice that the 75-940e is rated by Sony as consuming 482 watts? Almost 4 times as much as other 75 inch tvs.

I see $4,299 at Sony and Best Buy. I got mine from Big George's a few weeks ago (when Best Buy had a 1-day sale) for $3,399.

Yes, not that much less than my 60" plasma.... I guess the full array of LEDs needs power to light up the screen. It's also not Energy Star certified (unless I missed that somehow).

October 20th. I was in there a few weeks before and talked to a sales guy, but didn't get it. He called me when it went on sale and I jumped on it.

Abe's of Maine

940e is at $3379 at ABe's of Maine. Anyone has any experience with them? Is this an authorized seller?

Prefer to buy from BB but it is still at $4298 over there.

Any other BF sale?

Thanks.

Check with Cleveland. His price a few weeks ago was a lot closer to Abe's than BB.
