I agree it seems really odd. Here is an excerpt of my online chat:
Diana K : Is it a refurbished unit.
Diana K : So for a refurbished unit the warranty will be only 3 months.
My name : Brand new or it is supposed to be. If it is not I will be returning it.
Diana K : From date of manufacturing.
My name : I bought it yesterday
Diana K : It is not a brand new TV, it is a refurbished unit.
My name : Can you confirm this 100%?
Diana K : Yes, the warranty only shows 3 months.
My name : can you confirm that I have a refurbished unit?
Diana K : Yes, the please check the date of manufacturing at the back of the TV.
Diana K : The date of manufacturing is: 01.05.2012, and the warranty is upto: 31.07.2012.
Diana K : So, the gaps between them states that the unit is a refurbished unit.
Diana K : I suggest you to show the copy of the chat to the store and see for a brand new TV
I will just wait for my replacement unit on Friday.
Edit: Thanks to all for the replies.
