When we tested the Samsung HW-Q800C soundbar, we described it as the "best value Dolby Atmos soundbar in town" and now it has become even better value, as both Walmart in the US – along with a couple of other retailers – and Amazon in the UK have discounted it ahead of Amazon Prime Big Deal Days.
With Amazon Prime Day kicking off tomorrow and running for two days (October 10 - 11), the retailer has discounted a number of products ahead of time and the HW-Q800C has seen its price slashed to a ridiculously cheap £479.99 at Amazon in the UK (was £849.99). And while this is the best deal I've found so far, it's also selling for £799 at Very and Currys.
In the US, the Samsung HW-Q800C has been discounted to its lowest price and is available at Walmart for a 16% discount at $649 (was $779). You can also find it selling for a discounted (abeit not as good) price of $747.99 at Crutchfield.
Samsung often finds itself among the best soundbars and the Samsung HW-Q800C is no exception, earning a place on that list already. In our Samsung HW-Q800C review, we said that the soundbar has "excellent clarity and detail, even in busy scenes". With a well-balanced sound, the HW-Q800C excels in audio performance and has no sense of detail loss when its working its magic. Best of all, the subwoofer is "nimble and adaptive" and doesn’t overpower the rest of the soundbar.
The Samsung HW-Q800C is an excellent mid-range soundbar and with these discounts, especially the heavy discount on Amazon in UK, this is definitely one of the best pre Prime Day deals I’ve seen so far. It remains to be seen, but hopefully this will get even more discounts, which will make it hands down one of the best Black Friday deals around.
With this deal, you don’t even have to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of it. If you are thinking of checking out Amazon Prime Day though, you’ll need to be a Prime member, which you can sign up for a free 30-day trial that will last through the sale.
