Rented cargo van later...
So, here's an update to my situation.
I got tired of the bs excuses I kept hearing from BB reps, so I just ended up canceling my order. Got the standard boilerplate of it'll take between blah and blah days for the funds to be credited back into your acct. Really?? As soon I submitted my order, the charge posted on my card. But now that I've canceled my order and want my money back, it won't be credited back to me as quickly? Whatever, because the next call that I made was to my credit card company to dispute the charges. I rehash my BB experience and they were very accommodating to me. An half hour later, the BB charges were credited back to me account. During that half hour wait, I filed a complaint with the BBB. Will something ultimately come out of my filing the complaint? I hope so. They took my money for a product that they did NOT have, they did not deliver said product, and they never contacted me to tell me what was going on with my situation. If you don't have a product available, then you shouldn't be taking orders for said product. If they were just putting pending charges for an item that might be out of stock, or if a BB rep gave me a call or sent some sort of communication to let me know that my order would be delayed, then I would not have anything to complain about.
Anyway, decided to rent a cargo van to go pick up a brand new 64" at Fry's. I could have had it delivered for free, on a day that I chose, but I decided that after my previous experience, I wanted to be in more control of the situation. The box is huge, but not super heavy. My wife and I could handle it without much effort. I secured it in the cargo area and we were on our way. Got it into the house without a problem. It was packed pretty secure with a lot of styrofoam and that plastic covering over everything. The only issue that we had was getting it out of the box. Even though the screen is huge, the box is very deep and it was awkward for both of us to pull the screen out of the box. We got it out and I put the television pedestal together while the wife held up the screen. 8 screws later, we lifted the screen onto the pedestal and I put in the final 4 screws.
I am so happy that I went with the largest tv stand that we could get because this tv is huge. I purchased a 73" Innovex stand not too long ago, and I feel like the tv barely fits. So glad that I didn't go with a 65" stand.
I haven't had the time to really play with the tv yet, but I think is ultimately a good purchase.
