In store pickup only or can be ordered for free delivery online. Even though it says "Trusted Name Brand," attached screenshot shows matching inventory with Samsung UN82RU8000FXZA 82" so you can be sure this is the TV they're referring to.

The 82" RU8000 regularly sells for $1850 through EPP with extra 5-10% cashback. $1700 from Frys is a good price if you dont have EPP access, but nothing too special if you do.

Sadly the 2019 RU8000 was a downgrade from the 2018 NU8000. Samsung removed the local dimming and the RU8000 has reduced brightness, reduced color volume. Seems like they used a cheaper panel to save money.

Still a decent picture and great for cable TV, sports, and gaming. Not a good choice if you are interested in watching HDR.
