I bought a new home, followed by the TV. It was delivered and sat there boxed up for awhile until I finally moved in. After opening the box and connecting everything, I turned the TV on. I saw sparks in the screen and it shut off. Looking closer I discovered cracks in the screen along the edge. When it was delivered the delivery guy would not let it be opened for inspection.
Such a story is perfectly plausible, as not everyone is as thorough as the readers here.
In other news, I ALMOST sold it on eBay for $800 LOL ...
