Now, it doesn't work. Do stores usually let you return tvs that are two days old if it breaks? ugh.
Why people don't insist on buying it from a local store that will swap it blows my mind!!!
30 day return policy, with no re-stocking fee for returns or exchanges is a MUST!!!!
In some cases it's worth the extra money to buy it from a good authorized dealer who will support you down the road. And, since most places price match each other, it not even an issue of $$
The dumbest and stupidest mistake a person can do when purchaseing a projection tv is not to buy it from a good dealer, and get stuck with a lemon and not be able to return or exchange it untill satisfied.
Sears, Circuit City, and most other large name electronics retialers will allow returns and exchanges without restocking fees. Both Sears and CC also service what they sell , and have a support service center for future problems down the road.
Best buy does not have an official return policy or re-stocking fee either, (although I have heard contradictory things) and I think they will alow you to return and exchange most sets except Mitsubishi, which has a restocking fee or some extra return limit places on those models.
Buying it online, or out the back of a van, or an unauthorized dealer, or Uncle Joe's TV store, is not a good idea in my opinion.
