Well, some good news that hopefully translates over to the KRP shipments. My 141 arrived about 20 minutes ago, via Peninsula Truck Lines here in the Seattle area. The 141 was on a pallet, shrink-wrapped and secured in place to the sidewall. The delivery driver was great, very professional, and had no problems waiting around while I checked everything. Glass in perfect condition via the flashlight inspection, and powered up with the "No Input" message, indicating all was good to go (whew!). I have already started running the break-in disc...If you are in the western Washington area and Peninsula TL is delivering your KRP, I hope that you have the same great experience that I had with them.
...and if the KRPs look exactly like the 141, this is one gorgeous TV, even with the power turned off...WOW! I now officially have no regrets in my purchase of this Pioneer plasma. My sincere thanks to Robert & VE for giving me the opportunity to own one of these amazing 9G Pioneers. If you are on the fence, just make the purchase (KRP, PRO, whichever) and never look back...
EDIT: I forgot to mention that the 141 came in what I would consider original packaging type, at least per the pix posted throughout this thread of the 600M packaging. There was only a small indentation on one of the end's bottom corners, otherwise was in very good shape overall.
