Congrats and enjoy!

I'm assuming they will let me check it out completely before signing, but just in case they don't, what other steps should I take just to be safe?
You pretty much got it just right
. Try your best to make them wait for you to open and inspect, and yes a flashlight will help you look for harder to see cracks. If they will let you power it on too, do it. If they tell you that you cant open the box without signing, dont not sign it until you write "Subject to inspection" on the paperwork first, or even make it more detailed with something like "Subject to inspection. Unable to open box before signing". If you find problems before signing, just reject the shipment and make them take it back right then and there. If you find problems after signing, call your seller IMMEDIATELY and get it straightened out with them on what the next step is. And finally, if you are lucky enough to get a good shipper that lets you do everything you want before signing, and you are super excited that you dont have to go through the headache of exchanges, and want to extend the driver a small monetary tip for his patience of waiting, nobody will hold it against you since alot of drivers are azzholes it seems...lol...Good luck!
