    Came across this, in my search for my new Note. I dont know if Amazon or Best Buy will match this price for their Black Friday sales, but this looks like a great deal to me. Has anyone bought direct from Samsung and if so, how was the experience.

    This has the 16Gb for 499 and the 32 Gb for 549. Have not seen that anywhere else so far.

    Did you order with this pricing? They say these wont ship till 11/28, at this price anyway. Im waiting to see if Amazon will also bring it down to this level for black friday.. I prefer to order from amazon

    It is not 2014 unless it says it is. Kinda weird/sneaky way to launch a new model. Wonder how many are buying the old model, clearing out vendor inventory, thinking they are getting a great deal on the 2014, but really getting the old one

    Called my Best Buy, they indicated they will NOT match any Black Friday ad's, to include OEM sites like Samsung.

    Yeah, I returned a 16 gig yesterday and the guy said its a good idea to jump on that price. I guess meaning BB won't price match.

    Oh you paid 549, that's not the add posted with the 399 price. The Samsung direct ones don't ship till 11/28. I'm still hoping Amazon has the 499 16Gbps for black Friday
    11-24-2013 12:29 PM
  13. SwaggerJacker's Avatar
    The add posted for the 399.00 price is not for the 2014 version. Not sure why you're saying the Samsung Black Friday units won't ship till the 28th? I have a tracking number and delivery date.

    My unit was shipped. I have the tracking number and delivery date. Tomorrow.
    The 399.00 price is for the old note 10.1

    Wow that's very cool for you. I should have jumped on the 499 16gb. They told me they would not be shipped till 11/28
    Did you have to pay any sales tax?
    11-24-2013 03:29 PM
  16. SwaggerJacker's Avatar
    No taxes. 549.00 even for the 32 gig.

    Yes, I received it today. I was worried at first because the box was dented on most of the edges. I also noticed that the seals were broken on both sides. The camera still has it's tape covering it, and there were a couple tape strips on the side, which was a good sign. I immediately called Samsung to inquire about my findings. I spoke with a very nice lady, who informed me that Samsung USA opens the boxes to inspect the unit. She said to make sure everything worked (because of the dented package) and if I have any worries, I have 30 days to return the unit. I powered on the unit and everything seems cool.

    It updated right away. TouchWiz is laggy...period. I'm running next launcher, and the tablet is very very smooth. I purchased a wireless keyboard and found my 4-port USB hub. At present, I'm using the keyboard and a mouse with the tab. The kbd came with a trak-pad, but it is too sensitive. Weird because it worked perfectly on my Note 8. So far I'm happy with my purchase. I'm sure the dents on the box were caused by FedEx.

    So adding a different launcher fixes the lag? I was thinking about getting one until I read and saw videos of the lag.

    Yes, I have absolutely no lag now. The tablet is running very smooth. I have a wireless mouse and keybd attached as well. Very nice so far. Typing this with the keybd. :-)

    For anyone that has yet to jump on the deal above, Newegg is offering one that's slightly better.

    Until the 27th, you can use the code EMCWWVR83 at checkout and get 10% off. Bought the 32gb Note for $539.99 earlier today. That would make the 16gb version about $495.99. No sales tax (at least for me) and free standard shipping or 2-day with Shoprunner.

    Note: To use the coupon, you have to be subscribed to their newsletter, which I did right before I purchased it, so I don't think it would be a problem to subscribe, purchase, and then unsubscribe to save your e-mail from the flyers they'll send you. If you've been contemplating purchasing, I would jump on it now.

    Just curious, tho I probably know the answer. When you use a different launcher, you lose all access to touchwiz, which has the multi window, and other features right? What about the S Pen features with a different launcher?

    I really wonder what Amazon will come up at the end of the week. My general purchase choice would be Amazon, but not if they dont get their pricing in line with these. Also , Samsung will offer the lower prices starting Thursday too.

    Thanks for the info on newegg, I also just found this:

    wow! how COOL is THIS!

    Just called Amazon, and asked if they would price match, they said they would!

    I quoted the Newegg deal, and sure enough they adjusted my price to 495.99. I'll have it Friday! woohooo.... Thanks for the heads up on Newegg ManicLaughter!

    Argggg! Chatted with Amazon and they said, "No", quoting written policy with TV's being the single exception.
    *************
    UPDATE: YEA!! I 'called' Amazon, post the Chat, and they offered a one time exception for me because 'DianeHelen' received a price match discount.

    F A N T A S T I C !!, thanks for the input! Diane- when you get to the Midwest (provided you are not already here), I will buy the first cocktail! Thanks!

    Ordered the 32GB unit- can't wait.

    No, you don't loose all of the TouchWiz features. S pen works fine and has all functionality. You may loose some of the widgets; like the 4x6 calendar one. I really like that one. Congrats on the find and great price!
