Howdy Everyone,
Please take notice to the Note section on the drop description page that states the following:
The products offered on this drop are brand-new US goods, never opened, and will have a full warranty with Samsung. See below for registration and warranty information.
Please make sure you address information is correct and that you are providing a valid phone number for delivery purposes.
Cheers.

That was me flagging the two people who can assist you with this.
I still haven’t heard from either of those contacts or any info about the warranty. Do you have any other suggestions I can contact? Thanks
Need the 65 inch version to drop again ha
We did the 75” on 12/8/18. The product description said that it had a likely ship date of 01/04/19. We got notification on 12/17/18 that it shipped already. The tracking number is invalid if you use the link in the MassDrop email. On TeamTrac (https://www.teamww.com/tracking/team-trac/), however, the tracking # is valid. TeamTrac has an estimated delivery date of 12/20/18. I called TeamTrac (800-966-7778) to schedule delivery. As others have experienced, MassDrop didn’t provide my phone number to TeamTrac so they would not have been able to contact me to schedule delivery. Unfortunately, it is arriving while we are on vacation. TeamTrac is willing, however, to hold delivery until we get back from vacation. As many complaints about MassDrop are about how slow they are, I never expected shipment 2 weeks before the published Estimated Ship Date and for my vacation to get in they way. When should we expect the email about the Warranty?
Really wish there was a financing option availabile on massdrop
Hello, Is this TV being distributed from Samsung or from a 3rd party as I see the word "vendor" will ship. I ask as I thought the original drop showed Samsung would ship. Thanks

second this question
I just joined and am interested in the 75" Q8FN. I don't want to make a stupid mistake that will either delay shipping or screw up a warranty. Can anyone tell me what I should look out for, or mistakes they made, and any other nuance that could affect my purchase? Thanks in advance!
Folks, Sony A1E 55’ and Samsung q8 65’ are the same price range where as A1E is superior in technology. I want to know your thoughts please.

BTW, The 65” LG C8 is $2,300 on Massdrop right now, compared to $3,000 for the A1E. A quick internet search didn’t turn up any 55” A1E in stock, but they’re probably out there.
So it's $450 more expensive to get the 65" model? Or is this yet another typo with pricing?
it seems like a good drop at first but ebay is currently selling the exact same 75 inch Q8F for 100 bucks cheaper and no wait for shipping.
I see your advertising the 65" and 75" in the title of this however the description refers to the 55". Also there is no savings in this drop, considering Best Buy has it for $300 less on the 55" model. Google and verify prices people!

If you go to the purchase step, it looks like the 65” is $1,949.99 and 75” is $2,949.99; the 55” isn’t available this time. These prices are $550-850 lower than Best Buy. But yes, Massdrop needs to update the description.
I ended up getting mine from Greentoe. Great price. Fast shipping from an authorized dealer. No problem activating Samsung warranty.
Great television, I just bought one through Samsung Direct for a 100$ cheaper than this drop with a discount through my employer but at 1399 it's still a great buy. One of the best LED televisions on the market currently.
Ships to NZ?
Any chance the 82" model can be included?
anyone got any shipping information from the last drop that suppose to be shipped oct 23rd 2018?
Does anyone else’s order keep gettining canceled due to being “back-ordered?” This is the second concurrent order of mine that has been cancelled after having my funds withdrawn for over 2 weeks
This all seems a bit shady by Massdrop, and at this point I’d advise that new buyers steer clear of this listing. Take your money somewhere else!
This television was a great buy, and to my surprise delivered earlier than expected. Thanks Massdrop for making It happen.
In the 11th hour, I find myself tempted to join this drop, but too many questions about shipping, warrantlies, and more, stay my hand. If these issues get ironed out, I would love to join a future drop which should include the Tidal app as a standard feature

What issues are not clear? The shipping procedures are listed on the drop page itself. You will have full warranty and support from Samsung. If you have any questions I am happy to help.
The only reason that is holding me back is the 1 year Warranty You would think that any electronic product worth $2000 you would receive 3 years. Regardless, how do you go about obtaining additional repair coverages if such exist?

4 year warranty offered here for $229.99 https://www.squaretrade.com/tv-warranty
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Thank you for your response Ican leave with that Let me check the details of Squaretrade offer I believe that they are an off shoot of Allstate Insurance co if I am not mistaken
Is there option to get an extended warranty, at an extra cost?

Thanks. It says within 30 days of purchase. Is the billing date the purchase date or when the television is actually delivered? I appreciate the help.

You can use your massdrop invoice to purchase it. You would get that when drop ends as proof of when you purchased it.
A heads up to the group that participated in the recent drop...
contacted Team Trac as recommended to setup delivery. It was a good thing that I did, because they did not have a phone number listed to call me (Despite it being listed on my MD profile). Unfortunately, this appears to be the same issue brought up by participants in the previous drop. Call Team Trac to make sure they have your contact information.
Still haven‘t received word about the status of the warranty. previous drop participants had issues with this. I had updated my contact as suggested. Can Massdrop clarify?
hello team, it seems my order shipped on 9/10. However the tracking number doesn't say the courier name so I have no way to track it. I’ve tried all the usual suspects... any suggestions or tips on tracking the Q8?? Thx in advance
BoChaiTea
Nothin?
BoChaiTea
Try team trac.
What type of shipping does the drop include? is the TV delivered indoors?
The 65" is $1699 every day at Costco.....

That isn't the same model TV, it is a 6 series not the higher end 8 series.
GLENNB1
I believe that is for the Q6FN series, not the Q8FN. the Q8 series has a better audio stage and a feature called 'Ultra Black Elite' which the Q6 series does not. The Q6 Series has a callout for FreeSync, but the QF8 does not, although I am not sure that it does not have that feature.
Received the TV today (08/21) from the Aug 5th drop. The TV was recognized immediately when scanned with the Samsung SmartThings App and registered without issue. Picture is excellent and the screen is undamaged. There where odd scuff marks on the back of the TV that I would not expect, but they brushed off easily.

A few comments for anyone ordering:
1. You must call TeamTrac and provide your phone number to ensure delivery 2. The warranty was not registered under my name as indicated in the drop overview (yes I followed the instructions in the disclaimer)
I've submitted the warranty information to Samsung and it is under review. The only issue is the review will take 2-3 days which is outside the 3-day reporting period for damages (unknown if Samsung refusing to honor the warranty constitutes "damage", but it would violate the terms of the purchase).
So far, I am very happy with the Drop. I will update once the warranty is processed.

update - after working with Massdrop support and Samsung, currently Samsung cannot approve the bill of sale because I "purchased the TV in an Unauthorized Reseller"
update - Samsung has now confirmed my warranty.
It took some time for Massdrop Support to properly communicate with Samsung.
Advice for anyone having this issue - you cannot work with SAMSUNG to confirm the warranty, Massdrop or B.Hutch will need to work with SAMSUNG to resolve.
I've been wondering why I haven't received a call to setup delivery so I called TeamTrac and gave them my tracking number. Apparently they had all zero's for my phone number and therefore couldn't schedule it! I read that other people had this same issue previously.

Same here. I called both the shipping company’s main office and the local one (that’s what the guy at the main office told me to do). Still haven’t received a call. I called back a little bit ago and the woman at the main office said there’s no way I called the local office because they would have set up the delivery. Really not impressed. I probably won’t be using Massdrop again.

Confirmed - I had the same issue. I called TeamTrac to resolve.
what happens if the tv shows up and does not work? if reported within 3 days, can be replaced promptly? or need to wait another month?
echen
Inform your credit card company and get your money back. If massdrop or Samsung doesn't want to play ball and honor a guarantee, your cc company will have your back. They won't let you spend a couple thousand and get ripped off.
The people that were on the July 8th drop did you receive your tvs? Just want to make sure everything is legit before I join the current drop.
GS311
Not yet. My 75" order finally updated to an estimated delivery date of 08-08, although per Massdrop it was out of the ordinary for it to take this long due to someone driving a truck into a lake.
GS311
Yeah mine came July 15th (from the July 8th drop). packaging was nice and everything seems totally above board. Seems like there are still issues with the 75” but at least the 55 & 65”(mine) are being deliveries earlier than their quoted schedule (mine was originally quoted around july 22nd iirc.
edit: my months were mixed up, i was in the AUGUST drop, not July so that’s even more relevant.
"It features LG’s new Ambient Mode, which lets you input information about the room environment to help it blend in seamlessly with its surroundings, so you’ll barely even notice it’s there."
Considering this is a Samsung TV, not LG, I'm sure that's a mistake.
jimbolaya
Ambient mode is a feature on all 2018 Samsung QLED TVs.
Is there still no update on the 75”?

Same problem with my Kronos. But if you use this site you can track the order: https://www.teamww.com/tracking/team-trac
Mine is still in the "REQUESTED" status which technically means it hasn't shipped. Still not happy.
heat23
That works. Thanks! Hope yours gets shipped out soon.
