Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Nice picture--No sound

Dave 11/29/2019

I bought this TV 8 days ago--it worked fine for 2 days. Now I turn it on and there is picture but no sound. If I unplug the HDMI Cable from HDMI 4--on the back of the TV--and plug it back in--I get picture and sound for a minute. Then a message appears that says that we are adjusting the picture and the sound shuts off. DVDs work--but not broadcasts. I have the latest update and have been on chat with Samsung for days without results.

cheaply made stand

RLea 4/27/2019

I just received my curved 8500 Samsung TV and the stand is way below par for the price and product from Samsung. There is a 2 piece stand. The part that attachs to the TV and the part that attached to that part. The bar stand portion screw into NOTHING (a void) in the rest of the stand, not to mention the extending portion of the screw is less than 1/4 inch. When standing the TV up, the plastic prongs snapped off therefore renders the stand unuseable. DO NOT purchase this TV unless you are prepared to mount it on the wall. Can not comment on the quality of the picture since I can't use the TV until I get it mounted on the wall. One would think that Samsung would produce a better quality stand for their TVs. My last 4k UHD flat screen had a far better stand.

Great Television

Zorkcave 8/16/2018

Amazing picture! After watching a plasma TV for several years, I was concerned about the picture from an LCD TV. I'm not concerned anymore. I've been playing with the video setting for days and I'll play a little more, however this television has a great picture. I love the upscaling and the HDR+. There are many articles across the internet on how to get rid of the "soap opera effect". I for one, like it. It looks like real life. Love 4K until 8K is available.
