I emailed the guy directly $3100 is the correct price for the 65in. Someone has to have some kind of info out there.They are selling the 65" for less than then 55". That's also a full $1000 less than Cleveland Plasma. That's gotta be a mistake. But, please buy one, and if it works, I'm in.
Yeah really on the fence about it.. I am curious though if any of the online retailers including our forum sponsor would price match with these guys. Sending some emails today so we will see.Bitdazzle is kind of like ebay "buy it now" but also trying to promote bitcoins so they have lower fees for sellers. They seem to take credit cards, however, so you can probably use that for buyer protection. Bitdazzle is just the market, the seller in this case is "4 U Wholesalers LLC" out of Florida. Unfortunately, they don't have user reviews to see if the seller is "five stars" or "one star." Who knows if it's a scam or not until you try. The shipping calculates to $128 (probably varies by zip), but it's still a good deal. You'd obviously have a hard time exchanging if you get a bad yellow band or whatever other problems people are finding.
The 55" is $2600, which is about what others like CP charge. The 65" for $3100 is far better than others, but it's possible that it's just a little above wholesale and they can sell for that price (and/or are subsidized to promote bitcoins). The seller pays higher fees if you buy with a credit card vs. bitcoin, but there doesn't appear to be a price difference for the buyer (at least in the cart).
There might very well be the whole East Coast TV "call and upsell" tactic, but who knows until you try. There's no denying that it's a gamble with the potential for a huge pain in the arse.
Doubtful on price matching, but you might luck out if you try getting $500 back through a credit card's price protection policy. They say no auction-like sites for matches, but this isn't really an auction. I suppose phone calls to the credit card price match people would also work to see if they'd do it before you order with CP or whoever. It would then be 4250-500=3750... not a match of this crazy low price, but you wouldn't be risking a scam hassle. Probably a good idea to save a pdf of this bitdazzle page if that's the plan. Plus, there's the whole yellow band lottery to worry about, so maybe just waiting is a better all-around idea.Yeah really on the fence about it..
