Ok, we FINALLY got our new replacement in and we have some concerns. This is supposedly new in box and we even watched them unbox it and assemble the base in front of our eyes. However when the TV first started up, we noticed it didn't start up like new. It didn't go directly to the first setup and the custom picture settings were all different (not the default settings). Also, are the default custom settings brightness really set that high at 100? We just want to be sure that we did in fact receive a new replacement TV and not a used one.
Otherwise everything looks good so far.
