Summary: Finally pulled the trigger and purchased this TV after shopping for 18 months, largely based on reviews. First, [...] shipped me a broken one, and it took me 10 days (and probably 10 hours of headache) to get a response from them - clearly not worth the good price I got. Then the replacement was broken. (I have read multiple other accounts about this, so would guess this is a fragile model.
Summary: I've been waiting for over a year to buy a new flat panel TV, and finally decided on this set based on reviews and great price. The price dropped below $1,000 and they were offering a free BD player, I couldn't resist. Unfortunately, when the set arrived it did not work. There was sound, along with a loud buzz, but no picture. So, I declined shipment and called Amazon customer service.
