Summary: Ordered this TV to replace a Samsung that is less than 4 years old and already going to crap. Figured why spend a fortune if even the good brands don't last. Received order as promised and there was no damage to packaging. Had the TV up and running within a few minutes, and the picture is great for the price. Speakers aren't the greatest but we hooked it up to our surround sound and it's fine.
Summary: First, I think the TV is probably a good deal for the price - but be forewarned that you get what you pay for! My TV arrived without mounting screws for the base of the TV. I think the TV is new and not previously used, but the packaging had definitely been opened and taped up again. Amazon support was great and they would have taken the TV back, but was it worth the hassle of repackaging the set and scheduling a pickup?
