hope it goes well for you.

Have you asked them who their extended warranty is through.

I would check the credentials of that free warranty.


I've done my investigations re: the warranty suppliers, and I found that it's the same mob Myer uses. Although, it's not really a warranty, it's more like an insurance policy.

Here's a link I found on Digital Centres website:
first Digital Centres Page:
http://www.digitalce...-plasma-tv.html
and at the bottum, you'll find the link:
http://www.unitedele...au/products.htm

Here's a link to "United Electrical's" Myer warranty form:
http://www.unitedele...giStration.aspx

And I have asked and they've assured me it's an extension(meaning the same rules apply) of the manufacturers warranty.

Although, I did find in some text "power surges, power spikes" will not be covered, so I'll have to get a surge protector. But if that kills the TV, then home insurance should cover it.

The only differences between the series 7 and 8 3D plasmas in the US are the "Real Black Filter" and "Brushed Titanium/Black Finish". Since the Series 7 in Australia has that filter, I'm guessing we're not getting a series 8 this year.
I'm just surprised they're so cheap compared to Panasonic's 2010 lineup.


They're trying to capture market share from their main competitor in the plasma market - Panasonic.

They saw how competitive Panasonic's 65" was in 2009 so they've preemptively undercut them and also beatem them to market with a 3D plasma offering.

Well I went to JB, Myer and HN today and man - staff are really uninformed and know very little about their products or what's coming.

Myer and JB both said the "The biggest Samsung TV is 55". I pointed out that there is a plasma version at 63" can they please quote me on that. After checking their system they obviosuly found out they were wrong. The cheapest price I could get on the spot was $3450 from JB but until they get a "true" price as in have stock they couldn't go lower just yet. He did say though that once stock arrives it should be doable for $3300 at least.

Myer indicated the cost price was around $3200 and they couldn't go lower then that. They wouldn't tell me the exact figure except when I pointed out it was $3399 from Gameon and could they match it they said they wont do online retailers but they will match a quote from JB or someplace. He did say that even if JB came back with $3300 they could better it slightly as it is just above cost.

I really wish I just would have gotten it from Digitalcentre though for $3499 with the 5 year warranty. All other places quote around $400 for an additional 4 years warranty :(

Digitalcentre is hit and miss. Quite alot of people dont have any problem - yet some have extremely bad issues. Personally it should be used to match with other retailers :)

Pity about the price going back up to $3749 though :(

Gester....Thanks,
Total agree~~~~~ Quite alot of people dont have any problem ~~~
I will compare again and again....
Thanks

I haven't heard much about gameon.net so I didn't put them down.

I recommend doing a search on whirlpool for any online retailer you are considering purchasing a large item from. If people have good or bad experiences with them you will find info on there.


purpleninja........I will search it...
Thanks

I ordered mine from Digital Centre for the $3498(inc the extra 4yr warranty) then checked the website each day for approx the next week. the price jumped up twice, once to $3550(i think) then to the price it is now. Still, they're the cheapest around(when you take into account the warranty). Even if you're able to get it for $3200 from Myer, my dealings with them shows they don't really budge on the warranty price.(of $499).
Good luck, i'll be very interested to see what you're able to get it for.

If purchasing from Myer bear in mind that you can get $20 back for every $1000 you spend if you get their free Myer One card.

$3200 + $499 - ~$80 = ~$3620

And that's assuming zero discounting on their extended warranty.

Myer do discount their extended warranties so this could become even lower.

Well if you didn't buy it outright today you may as well add another $800 to the price as the promo offer of the Sammy 6900 3d br player plus x2 pair of 3d glasses ends today.
So Yeah explains why their will be a small price drop soon. http://samsung-custo...ds.com.au/3DTV/
I queried it with their CC office and he told me that April 30 was the cut-off. I was confused as I read it differently meaning eligible sets purchased (paid in full by Samsungs definition) before May1 will be valid and that the offer commenced May1. Not so according to him. :o

Lol wtf??? I seriously think (and hope) that the dude you were talking to has made a mistake, what is the point of having a promotion that no one has heard about (if they don't go online) for products that aren't even in stock at most of the retailers? Why say "if you have purchased prior to 1st May .... you are still valid to claim this bonus" instead of just "this offer actually ends on the 1st May, SUCKERS"

EDIT: Oh wait, you're just joking .....

If you're not joking then I'd say that the guy you spoke to was mistaken.

A number of the eligible models aren't even released until June, so the promo will have to be running at least until then.

I pointed this out but obviously lost in translation. This would have been translated from Korean to English so I guess it is possible he was right.

I didn't think you were joking but I thought I might have missed something as johnjones thought you were.

If it does end today, Samsung will reconsider if they have any sense as it is a pointless promo otherwise.

Also they need to give people everything they need to watch 3D as to expect people to buy a new TV and then shell out for a 3D BD player when there is next to no content is asking a but much.

Plus if they're going for market share against Panasonic and the others they need to have a decent promo as well as good prices.

I'd be very surprised if they did end it today.

Here's to hoping I don't get surprised! :)

Myer do discount their extended warranties so this could become even lower.


Ah yes, my calculator i broken :o , but isnt it $20 for every $1000 spent, so -$60 bringing it to $3640?

I approximated that if you're spending $3700 on the TV that you could spend another $300 at Myer during the year and get the additional $20.

Either way, the discount off the extended warranty would be more than $20 here or there so it could easily be less than $3600
