It took 50 minutes to chat order this TV. Dell does not like to make $50 promo redemptions easy from the buy $300 get $50.

Good basic TV though and good price.
I did the same. My problem was having to sweat this TV selling out while waiting for the $300 and the $50 to be emailed to me. I ordered them at 3:30 AM EST and didn't get them until 11:00 AM. Then spent about 20 minutes with Dell chat in order to use both the $300 and the $50 in the same order. Total for TV and $350 gift card is $642.xx after tax.

Luckily Slickdeals seems to have missed this very slick deal, while the 60 Hz little brother of this TV made the front page at $500 with a $150 egift card.Confused

FYI this TV has 120 Hz refresh rate, and the UN40EH5000 has a 60 Hz refresh rate. Samsung (correctly) tries to point out that preventing blur on LCD and LED-LCD TV's is more complicated than just refresh rate, so they give the 5000 a "Clear Motion Rate rating" of 120, and they give this TV a "Clear Motion Rate rating" of 240." They are trying to say this TV's anti-blur is as good as the average 240Hz TV even though it is technically only 120Hz.
To err is human, to arr is pirate.
