85" Sony 850G - $2500 shipped

Newegg has this listed for $2600 + plus tax, but it is being sold through "NothingButSavings.com".
If you visit their website directly it is $100 less and not taxed (I'm in Washington state).


I have had several interactions with their customer service people and everything seems great so far. The TV will ship out of California for me. They said they have several available.


Also just FYI, the 85" 850G has a VA panel with direct led back light. All the other 850G models are edge lit IPS panels.

Yes will do... I'm coming from a 110" LCOS projector. Moved and having to downsize the HT room a bit, plus too many windows. My frame of reference is a older 43x800D that I use for a PC monitor. I really debated trying to get a 900F with the local dimming. In the end I was happy with the 43x800D black level and I assume this will be at least as good. Also the newer processor on the 850G was appealing as well as the price.

The search continues. I was just told the item I ordered was "Not Available for Shipment". This is after I called and verified availability. So of course I can no longer recommend these people. It was supposed to ship today.


Here is a update.. "
Unfortunately there was a mislisting on the particular item you had purchased. Our product management team notified us that we would be required to cancel orders associated with the item. The item has been removed from our listings."


Maybe they got in trouble for selling under MAP.

If anyone knows of a good deal on this 85" Sony message me. Thanks.

On Crutchfield it's 2,998 and they are very reputable and stand behind what they sell. Not quite that great price but not bad either for an 85 inch.

Yes, I have a 85x900F on order with Cleveland Plasma :-)
I am fairly certain I will actually get something delivered this time, lol.
Definitely increased the budget a bit. I paid about what it would cost me to get a 85x850G locally.

I could not find a deal the 85x850G anywhere.
