I recently purchased the 60F8000 from Amazon. It was delivered by freight carrier and the exterior box seemed to be in perfect condition. I noticed the bottom styrofoam was broken on both sides when I opened the TV so I further inspected it.
There was no damage to the front of the TV, but I did notice about ¼” on the bottom left back that is not flush to the back of the TV. I don’t believe this damage impacts the picture quality in anyway and everything seems to be working properly.
I contacted Amazon (their typical amazing service) and I was offered a significant discount to keep this TV which I think I am going to do, but I wanted to know if this would impact Samsung’s warranty in anyway? Or anything else I should be concerned about? I don’t want my judgment clouded by the significant savings on a $2,800 television.
I will try to post a picture later, but the damage is pretty small.
