[Leon's] Samsung 58” HDR 4K Smart TV ($699) - $50 off

Reviews look mixed on this, but $699 for a Samsung 58” looks decent. Any thoughts?

Please stop trying to make this a thing. A Hot Deal is not necessarily determined by the savings %

What?!?!?!

When I go to the mall, I tent to gravitate towards stores with "50-75% off" plastered all over their entrances. Or at least I used to before I discovered RFD. Some stores' 50% off sales are fake news that basically brings their prices down to regular price (looking at you Banana Republic).

Savings % is always important if you know the REAL regular price for anything.

I came here asking for thoughts on this tv. Looking online there are so many models that even when I google search the exact model, other models come up instead. I was hoping for people’s words and opinions on this tv.

So, by your own criteria, a 50% sale at Banana Republic would qualify for a Hot / Lava Hot deal. Which is exactly why that chart holds no weight whatsoever.

LOL...50-70% means nothing if the savings are on 1 or 2 items in the store that nobody wants.

WTF is this bullshit?
Discount off list means NOTHING when list price is inflated.
If it did, we should be posting Cisco networking gear day in day out cuz they start at 42% off minimum.

Walmart has 2 different 58" Samsungs right now. This one that OP has mentioned is a 7000 Series "Crystal" UHD UN58TU7000FXZC. I picked it up at my local Walmart for $598 last weekend. They also have the 6000 series 58" UN58NU6080FXZC. This is also $598. 2 HDMI on the 7000 vs 3 on the 6000. Bluetooth Audio on the 7000 not available on the 6000. I opted for the 7000.

Poor tv especially at that price. Put that money towards something better or wait for a better sale.

I think you guys are on the same page. "MSRP" or even "regular price" can be massively inflated (see Canadian Tire, or furniture/mattress stores, or some Chinese products, or etc etc etc); so the sale % from that figure tends to be meaningless.

The best thing to do is compare historical prices of the same or similar products (of similar performance) and see how good the current price compares. Sure; it may never reach that low a price ever again; but at least you might be tempted to wait to see if it ever gets down to that price again if you're not in a rush.
