  depends if your local distribution center has any which they don't know until they get your zip

I would snag it if only it had any audio outs on the set. Oh well.

Can't tell from BB site if it is back-lit or edge-lit. At this price I figure the worse but one can hope...

  I'm fairly sure Samsung has stepped away from back-lit/direct lit sets in 2013; That's a large reason why I've been watching LG deals most of the year, as several of their models (xxLA6200, 60LA7400, xxLA6150) still are direct lit.

  Also maybe blacker blacks and a brighter screen.

rated:
With the depth of this set being 3-7/8" I would guess this set is back lit/ direct lit.

Thanks OP. Got one. Just got the come n get it email from BB. No tax in DE.

You know if you get a Lexus...pretty much every car is high quality...BUT...with a Samsung...they have A grade and B grade model TV.  Be warned...if you think you gettting that hot Samsung TV look you see from there 2500 dollar models in their 999 model..forget it.  Just think the 999 model is made by Emerson or Sanyo.  There has been a great deal of discussion that Samsung does not use the same panel on every TV and their production is inconsistent in terms of quality.

Ignore the good reviews....and see the consistency in the bad reviews.  And my basic rule is never buy a TV until you see it at the store...and even a Samsung with the same exact model number may have a different performance.  Unless your buying it at Costco with easy return policy....I would be very careful with Samsung (although some of their TV are just awesome)

Now..I did buy the 55 lg that was a deal for 499 during black friday.  While I did not see the TV...the specs indicated that it was based on a prior model I did see.  And LG does maintain consistent panels and the reviews were consistent and the negatives were not that bad.

yes..65 Samsung for 999 does sound sweet....if it was a Sanyo 65 inch...does not sound so sweet..but you may be getting a Sanyo quality..no Samsung in their B tier models

rated:
Only 2 hdmi at this price point???

rated:
Just bought 3 for my new monitor setup :?. If you are concerned get off your a$$ go to a best buy and look at the model and look at the quality.

rated:
Oh, that is assuming they have it in stock, but my best buy does, it says,

Store Pickup:
Order today, pick up at:
******** CT - Pick up 01/04/2014

So worse comes to worse, if I get it and the blacks arn't crisp enough and the whites don't blind me, then I can bring it back. For the size and the model, the price is plenty fine, especially with the 120 refresh rate, thanks OP.

Brand name 65" LED television set for under a grand, and people whine that it might not be as good as the $3k model and it's only got two HDMI inputs. These things could sell for a dollar and there would be people going on and on about whether it's backlit or edge-lit.

rated:
no wifi, ethernet cable port or smart tv set up. you would need a Roku, apple tv, chromecast or some other wireless media streaming device to connect your tablets or phones. may not be important to many but it's important to some.
i have a 60 inch 7100 samasung and i always say what ever size your getting get 5 inch bigger... 65 should appeal to most. nice size. try to get a calibration kit to get the best picture as well.

  That's what I did my 60" tv.  There will likely be a handful of people with this exact model that are WAY more anal about their settings than I'd ever be.

EXACTLY!!
 Well said.. I have first hand evidence of this with the Samsung UN55EH6000 I bought last spring and THOUGHT I got such a good deal on. Gray blacks and pretty much impossible to  calibrate because of this problem.  I was never really satisfied with the set. I just sold it for almost half what I paid for it last month. What really burns me up is that my brother in law called me for recommendations on their first big screen tv. I recommended the Sams Club/Costco version of this model, believing Samsung meant  quality. I am happier watching my 4 year old 40" LCD, that actually has dark blacks. Your best bet if you need a new set is to only buy from a place with a very good, if not great, return policy....with the way these giant tv's are made these days your going to  need it. 
Also I want to give a very special thank you to Scott Wilkinson from TWIT and AVS Forums, for recommending the 6000 series . I don't ever remember him once saying  one thing about Samsung's panel lottery/minefield.

  Did that with my Panasonic . .  .until I read on the AVF forums, that the techs don't recommend it.  Something about each TV is different regardless of specs. (that each sTV is set-up at factory, just not calibrated to level they pros want)  What stops me cold is the cost.  Very expensive to have a pro do it (a few hours of work if done properly)

rated:
not trying to be a party pooper, but this TV kinda sucks butt. Samsung has way better options out there. i would go for a smaller TV (50 or 55) but with better quality color and better lighting system, higher refresh rate (smoother picture) and thinner frame.

rated:
i bought this TV on BF.  i googled it and had buyers remorse after.  came across some AVS forum talking about which panels were the good ones and which to avoid.  finally went to the store to pick it up, saw on the outside of the box it had one of the good panels (was it something like CH01 or whatnot?) and brought it home.  replaced a 3 year old sharp aquos 46" lcd and we're happy with it.  we also have an lg 60" plasma in another room that is awesome.  i had a 7ch setup using an onkyo receiver where this tv went so could careless about the lack (or minimal) inputs/outputs, etc.  i disabled the tv's speakers, plugged in the hdmi, let it burn a few days and tweaked the settings.  we're happy with it!

This TV went up to $1499 (not worth that for sure), but now dropped backed to $999 for those interested.

Hmm, I wonder if the 50" Vizio 4k will drive down prices on the 1080p tvs. Now I'm debating whether I should pull the trigger on this deal or just wait till the Superbowl.

Wasn't able to buy. Keeps saying unavailable.

rated:
plenty at cerritos store.....plenty...for a good reason.

rated:
The Cerritos panels are H series.....see below what you get. You can see it on the side of the box under type. Note the model number...but the type under the model number which is the type of panel your getting.

TH0x or TS0x: Samsung S-PVA panel (possibly just a PVA, if you're less lucky): This is what you thought you were buying. Best color, best black, best viewing angles.
HS0x: Sharp ASV panel: Lower contrast ratio, more narrow viewing angle. I read HS02 in particular has terrible ghosting.
A_0X: AOU A-MVA panel: Even lower contrast ratio.
CH0x or CM0x or CS0x: Chimea S-MVA panel: You lost the lottery. Markedly worse in every way - way worse viewing angle, color reproduction, etc. Just a terrible rip-off.

rated:
Next time read AVS forums so you know the truth.   Apparently not.....I know more about 'TV and panels and issues than you ever know...

Long winded thread crap. Do the opposite of what this poor soul says and you will be batting a thousand.

  You need to read AVS forums.  Yes not hours but years of research.  I know more about panels than you think.  If you spend less time readying all the positive reviews on Amazon and more time on forums with folks that get screwed on their TV...then you would not be burned.  

The top rated TV over the past ten years is Panasonic high end Plasma TV..period..no dispute.  Some of the worse and most expensive TVs in the world, Samsung.  It depends what panel you get.  Some are fantastic..some use poor panels.  You do realize their are folks wanting a class action lawsuit against Samsung for using different panels.

http://www.digitalversus.com/panel-switching-samsung-tvs-we-know-so-far-n15170.html 

read and enjoy...and dont bash folks like me based on your ignorance to the truth

If you think your getting for 999 the same TV panel as the Samsung 2500 tv....your mistaken.  Go to AVS forums and read...and learn.
