Vanns( fulfilled by Amazon) has last years Samsung flagship curved 65KS9800 Full array LED on clearance for $1995( shipped)

They are a factory authorized Samsung retailer

While this TV is a 2016 model it spanks every other Tv out there today in a 65"..sans the Sony Z9D and some OLED's
Depending on the brightness you like/need some actually prefer this TV to OLED
Compared to the Vizio P series ( 2016 or 2017) and the Samsung KS8000/8500 ..this KS9800 blows them away....and I own all three of them

The HDR performance is stellar and it meets the nit performance threshold for optimum performance

This is likely limited supply but you should be able to get Best Buy( and others) to price match

Good reviews but I found this for anyone interested:

http://4k.com/tv/samsung-ks9800-r...n88ks9500/

Finally, despite offering up a full-array LED backlighting system behind its screen, the KS9800 could still use some improvement in the quality of its local dimming technology. Yes, the local dimming of this TV is quite good and definitely far better than the local dimming of the edge-lit KS9500 but we expected even better than what the KS9800 delivers, especially when we compare the quality of this spec in this TV to the local dimming of the much cheaper 2016 Vizio P-Series 4K HDR TV models, which also come with full-array LED backlighting. For truly rich deep blacks, local dimming is in fact best left turned off in the KS9800 since it heavily reduced black level maximums.

Not bad for this set, I think we will see 65" OLEDs creeping around $2k in Nov may be worth waiting.

I have the P series as well as the KS9800
The KS9800 is in another league..its not even close
Trust me...

Compared to the Sony 900E in another thread that is only $200 cheaper...this is a virtual bargain compared to that for $200 more with some much more quality

It was clearance and super rare.. I ordered 2 and both got cancel. Within 10 min everything was sold out. I wouldn't consider the price Frys sold these OLEDs as anywhere near a normal sale price. We wont see them that low again until next year when they clear out the 2017s/

Oh shit, you can see the future? Are you willing to share Wednesday's Powerball numbers? PM Will rep..


Local Best Buy had an Open Box 65" C7 for $2300 recently down from $4499.. not too far off. There's no reason we couldn't see a B7 @ $2k or less especially after bundles / gc / cash back

Not sure why people can't wrap their head around technology dropping value year over year.

Because LG is the only manufacturer of oled and the best tv hands down. There is no reason for them to drop prices. People keep talking about 2300 dollar 4k oled tvs but I have yet to find one that is not extreme ymmv. If you have a link to one I can buy from 2300 right now I'll jump


Like you said YMMV, I wouldn't say extremely though. 5 different stores near me have them.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-6...of=openbox

Also supply and demand determines the price drop on OLEDs not necessarily the fact that it's the "best" and that's somewhat subjective if like OP said you're in a very bright room, or intend on using it for gaming ( better response time no burn in ) KS9800 may be better

There's only so many people willing to drop $3-4k on a TV. I remember when a 52" Sony LCD XBR4 was $3899+ LMAO

2300 is for a fair condition scuffed oled.. fark that if I am getting an oled the worst I am willing to accept is mint open box. Not scuffed, no box burn in dislay. also you lose credit card price and warranty protection with open box
