Just received my A94 this AM and I was so incredibly excited to fire it up! I got a pretty great deal on it (I think) through an Amazon seller, Paul's TV. Total price was less than $3,900 ($1 less to be exact). -[I've had a WD60735 for about 2.5-3 years and I've loved every moment of ownership until the picture just got a little too dim to enjoy some of my darker 3D BDs (Harry Potter, Green Lantern, etc..)]-
After the SINGLE delivery guy from AIT Worldwide somehow hauled it off his truck, up to my building, through the front doors, and up a small flight of stairs on his own, I got down there to help him gently bring it up into my apt. The underside of the box was torn and mangled, but the slide-over top was pristine. hmmm...
There is one major issue that I discovered within the first 15 seconds after I turned it on. The Television performs correctly, the picture quality and color is quite good, except that the projected image is trapezoidal in shape (see pictures). Clearly the interior of this thing has been jostled too much, or was offset to begin with.
This quickly turns into a nightmare moment for me. After spending a colossal amount of dough, it now comes down to a single moment; do I accept the TV or do I refuse and most likely spend the holidays without my A94? The delivery guys were late for their next appnt, adding plenty of awkward decision time in there. They assured me several times that I could still return the TV within 7 days. It would just be sitting in a warehouse if I did, so why not have a mostly-functioning TV until the next one gets shipped out?
It was a harrowing 10 mins for me as I tried to contact Mitsubishi and Amazon, as well as Paul's TV to figure out what to do. I ended up signing for it and adding some thorough notes in the comment section that I was displeased.
Since 9:30 this A.M. Amazon has passed the buck to Paul's TV (and rightfully so.... sorta), Paul's TV denied that I even had an order on record, Mitsubishi was a completely useless phone call, I think I got a 16-year-old on his first day who would NOT stray from his all powerful script. Haha. After waiting for call backs for 4 hours I took the initiative and called Paul's TV again, getting a different lady. She immediately found my order and asked if I would send some photos of the issue for confirmation. I was extremely thorough with my photos and description, and I have since been waiting for a reply. (they did send an acknowledgment)
I will try to keep everyone posted as to what happens in MY Laservue shipping adventure... I somehow knew I'd be next.
Otherwise, it really is the most amazing display I've ever laid eyes on. It's just gorgeous.
