Unfortunately it didn't arrive 2day like it was spose 2.
It was scheduled between 12-4 so by 430 I'm callin them, "Where's my Plasma b itches?"
They say, "Lemme call the driver." They put me on hold, 5 mins later I get disc'd. I call back, get a different rep and she communic8s w/the other rep and they tell me there was a mechanical issue w/their truck. So now I'm rescheduled between 1-3.
But I ordered it last fri so I guess 7 days from purchase 2 doorstep ain't bad 4 fleabay if it arrives in eggsellent condition.

Make sure the original plastic straps are around the box. They look a little like huge zip-ties, but it's braided plastic and the ends glue together.

What's your thoughts on the New Samsung LED technology?

Is this that new ultra-thin Samsung that is a little over an inch thick? There was one at work today. Brand new!

^ Yep. 1.2" deep according 2 Samsungs' website. They use 40% less power than conventional LCD TVs and are mercury free.

Each manufacturer has their own way of doing things, but the lid generally just lifts right off once the straps are removed...IF that manufacturer uses straps. The way they package those things, it's pretty much impossible to repackage it correctly once it's been opened. It should be really obvious if you're not the first person to crack it open.

Finally it's here. Not between 12-4 yesterday or 1-3 2day but @ 530 after over an hour on the phone w/the shipper and their many service reps in the last 2 days.

Anyway, everything looks fine and works.

KG, what do u recommend 4 cleaning the display/screen?

Microfiber or soft-cotton with just water, or what I use:

...and clean it when the TV is cooled off so there's zero risk of swirling your anti-glare coating. This is very hard to do, but should be avoided nonetheless.

The main thing is to avoid anything with chemicals like Windex with amonia.

Thanx 4 the info, my only problem now is I can't get my TV 2 play thru my stereo via my HDMI cable. Right now my stereo is playin thru the RCAs but I bought an HDMI cable from Amazon 4 like $5.
Maybe that's the problem, the cheap cable isn't working.
But I don't know cuz this is my 1st TV w/HDMI so maybe I'm not settin it up right.

I'm guessing this is because your receiver/amplifier has HDMI connections, but doesn't support HDMI audio. Receivers around $500 and under generally don't support HDMI audio, so you have to run either stereo cables like you did, or optical or digital coaxial alongside the HDMI cable. It's annoying. This is probably the case if you're connecting your HD components to the receiver with HDMI and then connecting the receiver's HDMI output to the TV.

Or are you connecting the TV's audio output to your stereo? You said, "I can't get my stereo to play through my stereo", so hopefully you can see why I'm a little confused. Whatever the problem is, it's most likely not a problem with the cable.
