Question about PP with Chace Saphire Preferred. I am going to buy from Ielectrica on EBay. Will there be an issue with P.O. since its from eBay. Or will it work.

Contact them and they will create a PO for you, without the HDMI cable if it is bundled.

Angel at Beach Camera can sell you an E6 for $2700 shipped. Several people here have already done that.

Exactly...$2700 I can live with, but I figure the E7 will start dropping soon enough, so if I can nab an improved '17 for 800-900 bucks more, why not....not going by retail prices of course

Because you will lose 3d. If you don't care about that,then go for it.

Same thing when I called today. Now I'm debating on whether the size difference between the OLED65C6P vs. the OLED55C6P is worth the extra $1000. Went to Best Buy today to check both out and couldn't get any closer to a decision.

#1 regret of tv purchases is always size. Don't short change yourself. It is a purchase that should last you several years.

Just picking you at random because what you said is tangentially relevant to what I wanted to ask, I agree about size.

However, looking for any opinions on just that. I've got to mount my new TV above my fireplace. I'm still trying to decide between the 55 and 65. I'm worried it's going to look "bad" up there if I get the 65, reason being that the 65 is 33 inches tall, and my mantle to ceiling is only 36. There will be more or less no space between the mantle and TV, and ceiling and TV. Add to that that I won't have space to put my sound bar up there, and I'm not sure a 55 (with its 28ish inch height) wouldn't be better.

Any thoughts? I've been keeping up on the deals, and none seem AMAZING right now, so trying to get this figured out before the (hopefully) next price drop comes around.

I have same dilemma, there is built in "tv shelf in living room the 55" fits perfectly in it, a 65" would need to go in front of the shelf and would block the fireplace switch. And look kindof awkward. I have a decent size living room with 20ft ceelings, I opted for the 55" and it's great. The off viewing angles on these OLeds make them seem bigger than they are because you have good picture from anywhere in the room.

Size/installation limitations aside, very few people regret buying the larger size but many regret opting for the smaller set after it's said and done. It's amazing how these newer sets with bigger screen sizes blend in, and a big part of that is the edge to edge design compared to the older sets with bezels around the perimeter. I swapped out our Panny 55VT50 for a 65E6P a few months ago, and even though there is about a 7 inch increase in overall width and 5 inches in height, we barely notice it now that's it's been installed and we've watched many hours of programming.

You must have a really large and tall fireplace if your mantle is only 36 inches from the ceiling. Our is installed over our fireplace too, but we have no mantle and our old plasmas were installed on the same Premier mounts articulating mount, so we can move it off the wall and watch it where we need it to be.

I considered sticking with the 55" inch size because I really wanted to get the 4K set and enjoy the new technology. After much back and forth I went for the 65" because I KNEW I would regret it in the long run if I went with a 55". In my mind the #1 rule for upgrading a TV is you have to keep going up in size if possible and that is indeed what I did with the newer technology coming in as a strong #2.

Buy what's right for you but do not discount how important the size factor is even though the smaller sets can save you some coin. Good luck with it!

Thanks for the thoughts/advice.

I guess maybe the Fireplace is large? I think it's just as much an issue of the ceilings not being exceptionally high.

The other issue is price. While I could make it work, it would be a lot less easy dropping 2k+ on a 65 inch set than just over 1K on the 55. I'm coming from a 46" 2009ish Toshiba Regza (or, in the picture, a super cheap 40 incher that I just have up there because I haven't had time to do any mounting in the time after moving, and that's the only set I have that will just sit up there with how narrow the mantle is (8.5")).

If I get in my head that it has to be 65 inches, I'm likely at least looking at other models as well.

Edit: While I'm super excited to get something, anything new, I'm nearly as excited to think about what my next set will be after this. I'm hoping that the W line of sets that are like wallpaper are much more common then, or something else has come down the pipe.

That's a really nice fireplace and mantle design. I can see what you mean as it looks like a combination of the fireplace and mantle being high and the ceiling being a bit low. I could see a 55" OLED looking really nice in that space. Considering you have 36" from mantle to ceiling, a 65E6P is 35 + inches high, so you would really be squeezing it in there, plus you would want to angle it down since it's high up there. Even though I would prefer the 65" where possible, since you are going from a 40" the 55" OLED would look absolutely huge in comparison.

If you can get either the 55" B, C, or E for around $1,000 after credit card price protection I'd say jump on it. The 2017 models don't present a very compelling argument to wait IMO but to each his own on that one. Check with iElectrica, Cleveland Plasma, Beach Camera, etc. and see what their best prices are now on the 55B6P, 55C6P (not sure you want curved but it's a great set), and the 55E6P and monitor the eBay daily deal specials. It just might be time to take the plunge.

Ordered my 65E from Angel @ Beach Camera on 4/27, shipped on 4/28. Arrived today. 703 build. Had latest firmware already. So much better than my old 1080i rear projection. $2700 shipped. So happy!

Do we ever expect the 65" B6P to go under or around 2 grand from an authorized dealer before the stock completely dries up?

"scam" sites Ebuyusa have it for $1689 and joesav for $1645 right now, but for such new, immature technology I'm not sure if I want to give up the manufacturer warranty.

Congrats! What an absolute steal on one of the best sets on the market which sold for $6K barely a year ago when it hit stores. Mine cost about $2,200 net of $500 Citi price rewind and $100 eBay bucks when I bought in mid February from iElectrica and I was thrilled beyond belief with that deal.

Have you watched any 3D on your set yet? It's absolutely mind blowing IMO.

In the same boat. Cannot decide if I want to spend the extra (now) 400 for the e series. I will most likely run my existing external sound so the sound bar isn't a big deal to me. Any other benefits anyone can think of over the c6, besides an additional HDMI? Is anyone fearful that the curve might add the risk of defects down the line?

Ordered a 65C6P from iElectrica on 5/3 and it was already picked up and on its way from NJ yesterday -- should be here in OKC sometime mid-next week.

$2499 less $500 Citi Prestige Price Rewind (hopefully) brings it to $1999 which still just blows my mind considering the original MSRP of these beauties.
