Lunch Time Deals: A 65-Inch Samsung 4K UHD TV Under $3K

When you're buying your lunch today, you might want to take a moment and spend a little more. Gizmodo's Lunch Time Deals posts point out any particularly good bargains for Aussie bargain hunters around the 'net. Today, The Good Guys has the first 65-inch Series 7 Samsung TV we've seen under $3000.

Spotted by the guys at OzBargain, this deal at The Good Guys — for a 65-inch Samsung UA65JU7000 at $2895 — marks just about the first instance of Samsung's premium mid-range TV line for 2015 dropping under the $3000 barrier. This TV was sold for nearly $3700 just a couple of months ago, so that's a significant saving.

TV prices are going to drop steeply over the next couple of months as all the fancy new models we saw introduced at CES 2016 are drip-fed onto store shelves and introduced around the country. That's still a little while off, though, and we haven't seen incredible improvements in picture quality, so unless you're hanging out for Premium certification on your new Ultra HD TV, then now is a good time to buy, and this particular Samsung makes itself even better value.

    With the Aussie dollar tanking, we might not see better deals for a while.

    Prior to Christmas I picked up a 65" Sony 4K TV (KD65X8500C) that runs Android TV for $2499 from JB HiFi. Now that was a good deal, given that it's currently $500 off but still priced at $3299 .

    The 55" JU7000 can also be had for $1798 for the lead up to Australia day too. Various retailers.

    The 7 series is an excellent TV too, considerably better than the entry level offerings.

    how are the blacks? :/ I don't have a TV yet... I was waiting for the 2016 models to rock up... but we know how long it'll take for Oz to get them

    The Blacks are fairly good, although it does have a semi-matte finish which can make it look a little greyish. Your only real step up would be to go to the 8000/9000 series or to LG with the OLEDs (which have THE BEST blacks...and unfortunately a whole set of drawbacks to get them), but you'd be looking about double the price.

    As for 2016 models, they usually launch in April-May, it looks to be mostly iterative improvements this year (think Intel's Tock cycle). Prices won't be reasonable until September ish (launch pricing is usually around double what runout pricing was, like for like), and solid sales don't usually come around until just before christmas. So it would depend on how long you want to wait.
