The delivery was truly "white glove". The driver called and met me at the house during the scheduled window. Box arrived just like it had left the factory. Not a scratch, dent or hole in it. The driver was very courteous and almost excited as I was. He allowed me to do a full outside inspection and then we pulled the top of the box off at the front door so I could see the inside in strong daylight for any signs of damage. We pulled it inside and into the Den and he helped me install the medal spikes into the base as well as helping me to pick up the TV and place it onto the stand. I powered on the set and signed the release and he was on his way. All in all about 25 min from curbside to power up.
This guy is a work of art right out of the box! I am using the THX setting and am blown away with the color and detail. The sound from the TV is wonderful as well. Lots of Bass and clear voice as well. The remote is a multifunctional and I had the thing set to control my Dish Network 622 in no time. This can replace the Dish remote which I have never been able to do with another TV remote before today. Very nice.
One oddity I found, only one input for antenna/cable. It appears you can scan for Analog or Digital or both and save them.
Connections with the HDMI cables were truly plug and play.
I have a new stand on order but it won't be shipped for several weeks so its on a temporary stand for the time being.
Again, fantastic TV out of the box.
Total satisfaction from Chris and Cleveland Plasma. I ordered on Tuesday 8/20. It was shipped out the same day and it arrived today 8/25. I am approx 1700 miles away as well.
These pics don't do it justice but its the best I could do at the moment!
