After CES the launch was slated for June 26th for each of these models. I would not expect to see them available and in stores until mid July.

UN65D8000 $4,600.00 release late summer. the UN75D9500 will most likely never be released as they said it was a prototype and didn't have plans to release it this year.

According to Engadget, their sources say that this panel will be available for sale in the USA in August. They place the price point at $13,000.



Hope this helps.

Also, according to CNET, Crunchgear and PCWorld, Samsung announced yesterday that the UN75D9500 will ship in Korea later this month. So, this is not a trade-show-only concept TV.

My Samsung UN65D8000 is shipping to me now. They have redesigned the bezel on this hopefully to improve picture quality/previous problems,hopefully. Very excited as I prefer picture quality over design.

I have had the UN65D8000 on pre-order for three months and the retailer still says they have no word when it will be released.


Please let me know where I can purchase this, I can not find anywhere to buy this model.


Thks

Samsung has the UN65D8000 in their inventory. They have approved my request to exchange my UN65C8000 for the 2011 D model. Now I am to wait 2-3 business days for the shipping department to contact me for what they refer to as a "white glove" delivery to set up a day where I am available for the exchange.


I had picture issues with the 2010 model. I sure hope the picture issues have been ironed out. I have been unable to find any reviews on the newer D model.

I preordered from ABT this February. Megan there is very good to deal with. I confirmed today that this is definitely the 2011 D series and not last years. Their site looks like this 65" bezel has been changed.I am also getting 2011 blu-ray player, 2011 kit. My shipping confirmation says delivery next Thursday.They do have limited supply in now.

I am very excited and remaining positive that all picture problems will be fixed.

Enjoy.

How can I exchange my UN55C8000 with the new model? How you did it? The warranty for my Samsung ends in August but for me I have the feeling that my set does not looks as sharp and vivid as lesser models even though it was setup as dynamic. And the blacks are not "real blacks" as is supposed on 8000 series. Please advise me to see how can Samsung exchange my TV. Also how much difference did you pay for the exchange. Thanks

That is correct, no super thin bezel
Same on all the 60" models too.
