First post so please have mercy. Costco has the Samsung 55" 4K UHD Smart LED LCD TV on sale for $850 but also offer a $70 manufacturer discount which comes out to $780 for members. The next cheapest price is $900 at BestBuy. I believe this model is the same as the KU6300 55" model just listed different for Costco inventory.
I would also recommend getting the squaretrade warranty as well. This deal is available not only online but also in store.
For reference, I was one of the individuals who purchased the 65" Panasonic cx400u 4K TV at Fry's Electronics and the upscaling was terrible so I returned it. Visited my local Costco (Tempe AZ) and was able to pick up this TV, much better quality TV compared to the Panny.

"Almost all the resolutions that we have tested are supported on this TV, the only exception was 1080p@120Hz, but that was to be expected for a Samsung TV. For sharper text 4:4:4 you must set the input type to 'PC'. For 4K@60Hz@4:4:4 you must enable UHD mode."
