[Best Buy] Samsung 30" 5.8 Cu. Ft. Slide-In Induction Range, $1100 [OOS]

Just saw this price drop on stocktrack, which looks like a price error, regular sale price is $2500, MSRP $3300
I would say if you're in the market then buy now think later, probably won't last long, 49 (48 already while writing this post) left. (edit: 32 now after 1.5 hours)
Some people hate Samsung, but I have a dual fuel range (not induction though) and it's been working perfectly for me for 4 years (also fridge). My parents have Samsung induction range and I never heard any complaints.
As noted by @SuperPaulette there seems to be a power limit when using both left or both right burners, see attached manual page, so buy with this in mind.
@katwittfan reported that was able to PM HomeDepot + 10% off and waive delivery fee, $989 + tax. I suggest placing order with BB, then contacting HD and asking for PM. Can always cancel BB order if you get it through.

For reference, Costco sell for $2500
HD and Rona for $2695 (PM?)
CAS for $2390

I bought this. Had it for two years and it's junk.

You can't use the two left or two right burners at the same time. It alternates power and makes for slow cooking. See page 29 of the manual.

Should be avoided even at this price.

Glad I could help. I even called them after 4 months of ownership thinking it was a defect. They sent technicians twice and then they finally realized it was "normal" and wouldn't do anything about it.

They say I should have read the manual before purchasing.

I've decided that was my last samsung purchase ever.

HD will price beat and waive shipping charge. Buying any Samsung appliance especially a fridge is a big gamble for sure but this range at $989 +tax delivered I feel is worth it. I chickened out last minute as our current electric range is working perfectly but this deal has me shaking!

Attached manual page for reference.
Is it when you dial Power Boost on either of them? Or just both on high?
I wonder, how often do you need a maximum power on more than 2 at the same time? But yeah, can be a deal-breaker for some.
My parents actually have Samsung induction range for over 2 years (not sure if the same model or not) and I never heard any complains (other then they had to buy a new set of pots and pans because their old would not work)

I know everyone has their cautionary tales about a brand, I use a Samsung phone, I have a Samsung TV...I really like those, but I will never buy another Samsung appliance as long as I live. My fridge died after about 14 months, it was a brand new french door style; the convection feature of my oven crapped out shortly after. I am so disappointed with Samsung appliances. Please do yourself a favor and buy extended warranty if you go this route.

Even both at medium causes issues.

It's not that it doesn't work, it's just not consistently delivering heat. I would explain it as an on and off. You can actually see and hear it when that happens.

If I would have known in advance, I wouldn't have purchased this.

It may be okay for some, as long as its clear (which is not in their ads)

Wow that is pretty terrible if true.

I've had a Frigidaire induction stove for ~5 years now and can use power boost on all 4 of my burners at the same time.

I almost can't wait for mine to die so I can get a new one. Just can't stomach the cost versus what I would get selling it used.

Also, to get back to facts, it's when I boil water at power boost and then lower to medium that I have issues.

Anyways, I'm not a professional cook but like to cook and I noticed it without having read the manual, guilty as charged. People can make their own decisions after.

I consider to upgrade the range and refrigerator this summer. Shall I buy separately or bundle it to negotiate for a better price?

What about purchasing it with a 4yr service contract. If it craps the bed or doesn't work right then it would be replaced?
