Fine Print:
Is It Hawt? : Don't know, don't care. I bought it as a tv for the basement.
Online reviews SUX! : Don't Care. Point me to where you can get a 'Insert name of your preferred TV brand' for $300.
Well my friends, cousin's, escorts, hairdresser got a better deal on pink Thursday 3 months ago! : Don't Care. Good luck with your time machine.
I Can't get this deal : Try Harder. If I found it on clearance with no effort then they are trying to get rid of them.
None of my local stores have this TV! : Oh, well I should probably do something about that right? As long as by Something, you mean Nothing then we are on the same page.
This post is bad and you should feel bad! : Internet points don't determine my mood; oh and I almost forgot, Don't Care.
You Suck! : Maybe; but guess what, Don't Care.

Happy Hunting RFD'ers

Nice price, probably a fantastic pickup for a cheap big TV.





How many Mexicans would $9,599 buy?

So just an update, I setup the TV today and the picture is much better than I was expecting for the price. It certainly isn't a top end quattron or panasonic but I was quite impressed at the screen for the value.

What has floored me has been the wireless connect feature! It's like having a google cromecast built into the TV for sites that it doesn't have apps for yet. I may just replace the 10 year old Sony Vega 46" DLP in the play room with this TV and move the DLP to the guest bedroom...

Ontario pays way more than other provinces for enviro fees, and your sales tax is 2.5x higher than Alberta.

Why should they?
The TV was purchased in Thunder Bay, and that's where the deal was posted from.
I think most people can figure out what their particular Province does with regards to any additional taxes & fees.

Great deal & post OP!!!!!!

That's exactly why the OP needs to post the original base cost so people can calculate the final price for their province.

Apparently Alberta is the only major province with low tax and you guys are not even that many in terms of population compared to BC or ON lol
0 tolerance for BS.
If I downvote, chances are it's less about the deal, and more about OP's inability to take criticism and constantly favoring their deal due to their ego.
A fool and his money are soon parted.
