Seriously, just look for a used 141/151 stand. I bought a "used-but never-used" 141 stand for my recent new 141 purchase and saved a bundle. The seller had another stand available, though it might have been for an 8G Pioneer. Feel free to PM me and I will send you his contact info. I can't guarantee he still has the other stand but worth a shot.

I would do that but I'm scheduled to move out of my place within a month or two so I would have to wait for that...

Hey go online to the pioneer parts site , type in Pro 151 parts and order the stand base, 2 legs and screw kit for about $225.00. It will fit the 600M series.

Thanks, I'll look into that!

Hhmmm, YRC shows that my 600M has hit ... err, uuhhmmm, arrived at their San Jose terminal. So now I wait for the delivery scheduling call I guess. Wow. This is like Really Bad Theater ...

By the way, and only marginally off topic, how fragile are these displays once they're in your hands? Should I be petrified of every move I make or is the high amount of damage in shipping mostly related to the crazy things that happen in the shipping process? My plan is to mount it on the wall and never touch it again but I'm wondering just how careful I need to be. I'm not planning on ice skating on the beast but should I avoid laying it down while attaching the mounts on the back, etc.?

i would handle it as if it were any other tv. just make sure you have another fellow to help you out on the mounting. i hear ya on the delivery call. my set reached new orleans over 24 hours ago and is still sitting in new orleans when the baton rouge destination is a friggin hour away. i wonder if they think their packages will lay eggs if sat long enough?

Agree w/ whit, just handle with care and you should be fine. I finally mounted my 141 this weekend with a friend and had no probs whatsoever.

Regarding the mounts, I left my 141 in the box (where it had sat all last week running the break-in disc) and bolted the arms there (see pic #1). Ignore the rope light, I removed it and installed a 18" fluorescent w/ 6500K bulb from Lowe's at the last minute (and glad I did!). I did take measurements to make sure the final installed would be at the desired mounting height for my viewing conditions (see pic #2). I even created a spreadsheet (Excel 2007) to automatically calc the screen centerline, based on heights of my wall mount, equipment stand, etc. I've attached it here in case you want to plug in your own #'s...yeah, I'm a bit of a geek...

When we did wall mount, I did buy some $3 garden gloves from Lowe's that had the rubber dots on the palm side so that we could steady the top of the panel firmly w/o worrying about scratching the bezel. And only one pair of gloves was needed between two of us as one hand was behind the TV using the rear handles.

FYI, even with my Peerless OneMount tilted slightly forward, the rear connections are still fairly accessible. But I used my stand positioned on a tall table a few inches from the wall to connect all my cables before the final mounting. So I got to use my 141 stand for about two minutes...

EDIT - if you think you might add a backlight (Idealume, home-made, etc) in the future, I suggest taking some plastic cable ties and install a few in strategic locations before mounting your 600M to the wall. Install a few extra like I did, just in case - you'll thank yourself later when you're home alone and want to do some mods...

EDIT #2 - I used hex head M8x20 bolts w/ single washer for mounting the arms to the back of the TV. M8x16 seemed to be just a bit too short for me, with no washer. M8x25 too long unless you use many washers...

well i went to the local distributor to see my 600m for myself and it was cracked. that makes two panels from two different vendors both cracked. This one was with monitoroutlet and was not on a pallet when i got there. Rich will be sending out another one tomorrow. I stressed with Rich that the pallets were coming off somewhere between the origin and destination and that there is absolutely no good reason to remove the panel from the pallet. what really sucks is when i got to the distributors warehouse every other tv they got in was nice and neat standing vertically strapped on a pallet. i was actually embarassed uncovering the box. im starting to think these panels are not shipping on pallets at all unless the distributor decides to place them on a pallet individually before shipment. im also starting to believe these panels are getting cracked coming from the pioneer plant as they are confirmed to not ship on a pallet. im guessing alot of them are getting damaged and some make it through. whatever the case im going to give this a third and final try and if this next one doesent come in perfectly im out of the game and wont be looking back. i cant tell you how pissed off i am right now.

Probably not at this time - I'm keeping it just in case I need to temporarily remove the 141 off the wall for whatever reason. And who knows if these stands can be found a year from now...

I really hate to hear this. Have you tried VE, Roman or Axxis? What about a 151 or 141, which unfortunately are more $$?

tried robert arlready if you dont remember. that was the first one cracked. i dont want to swap credit back and forth every week so ill let monitoroutlet have one more crack at it and then thats it. good or broken, im done with it. this has easily become more trouble that its worth. im also hearing some vendors are not selling these anymore. thats a good business move and im not surprised one bit. to tell you the truth, seeing one cracked pio plasma makes me sick, seeing two makes me absolutely not care anymore how this turns out.

Really sorry to hear that. I'm actually surprised that the shipper allowed you to check it out in their warehouse. That's very unusual. Good luck on your next effort!!

My own delivery is scheduled for tomorrow between 10am-2pm so I've got my fingers crossed.

Best of luck tomorrow with the delivery! Hopefully your YRC delivery folks will actually come in the alloted interval. My delivery was scheduled fro 8-12 AM, but I didn't actually receive the panel until 5:30 PM.

Got my 600M today. Seems to be okay. I haven't had a chance to inspect it thoroughly, but I haven't seen any cracks, and I did get the "no signal" when it was briefly powered up. There was a noticeable (though not overwhelming) hum. Hopefully, that's just because it's brand new and/or was still in the styrofoam. The stand arrives tomorrow. so there's not much I can do with it until then.

I ordered it from Monitor Outlet late last Wednesday (after cancelling an order with another dealer). It came from Philly via Pilot. The delivery guy wasn't exactly handling it gingerly, so I was more than a little nervous about it. He did pull the top of the box off so that I could briefly inspect the screen. I wrote on the receipt: "Appears okay, but subject to final inspection for damage."

I must say this is one gorgeous panel, even when it's off.

Well my 600m is on the way. R&L is the carrier which is going to give me nightmares...........lol. After reading so many horror stories about them in this thread alone, I am a little worried. Oh well, hopefully they will let me inspect it before they leave. If they choose not to, I will write that on the invoice. Roman has been great so far through the entire process so I guess I will just get my game face on when it arrives and hope for the best. I am going to be doing a lot of praying over the next few days ............lol.
