Ended up going with Amazon. They had a special promo where an extra 29inch Samsung was included, and they also have a 2% credit kickback/bonus along with a great return policy. Took only about 4 days for delivery. Supposed to have enhanced delivery, where they unbox it and put the stand on it. In my neck of the woods the driver looked at me and said "yeah right" when I mentioned unboxing and putting on the stand.
Talked with Amazon and they issuec a $100.00 credit for failure to unbox and set up. I was happy. The TV works perfect so far, and there was no tax charged for my state.
There is a reason Amazon does a big business. custom service so far was perfect.
