I've read a number of threads about not transporting Plasma TVs on their sides and some who've said newer Plasmas are not a problem. I just had a Panasonic ST60 50" plasma delivered. One of the delivery guys brought it in on his shoulder, tilted, upside down, and flipped it around before putting it down. They didn't lift away the box but pulled it out, and laid it screen down while they put the stand on it. When I said something he said the newer plasmas don't have that problem. He turned it on and it looks fine. My question is, should I be worried about any long-term effects of this or would any damage generally be immediately obvious, like a cracked screen? If it looks okay, should it generally be okay? Thanks for any help.

Yes, it should be fine. My delivery guys laid mine flat to put on the stand and also carried it in on its side from the truck. Perhaps long-term delivery, like on a truck across country, might be an issue, but nothing that short should be. If everything appears to be working fine and there's no damage to the set, there's nothing to worry about. Just enjoy your TV.

Thanks so much for the reply!!!

I'm running it through the 100 hour slides now, so hopefully it'll be as fine as it looks now.

No problem. It made me a bit uneasy too, but that was two months ago and everything is fine.
