It’s not every day that the Internet’s commenters can all decide together which product on Amazon is most in need of derision by way of product reviews. This time it’s not a gallon of whole milk or even a gigantic tub of lube, but a $40,000, 85-inch LED TV from Samsung. It’s on sale, too, down from $44,999.99!
Working themselves into a hilarious lather are a slew of reviewers on the product’s page, most of which are 5-stars. Because how could a TV that expensive ever rate lower than that?
A few particularly chuckleworthy excerpts below:
My wife and I bought this after selling our daughter Amanda into white slavery. We actually got a refurbished. It’s missing the remote, but oh well– for $10K off, I can afford a universal, right? The picture is amazing. I’ve never seen the world with such clarity.
Amanda, if you’re reading this, hang in there, honey! We’ll see you in a year.
At first I hesitated to make the purchase, but then I saw the two AA batteries were free with the remote, and I was all in! Having this really fills in that empty space we called a bathroom!
It fits perfectly into the arms of the T-Rex fossil I just brought home from China. It’s like YOU KNEW, Samsung. Thank you.
I am coming back from the future to write this review, and to let everyone know you can buy this TV for $699 in 2015. It still looks great though.
So much better than the crappy 84″ we used to have. I enjoy watching old sitcoms, but at this size you can really tell that the dad on Family Ties was wearing a fake beard.
