Not unless transportation is a big hassle: a 60" ST30 comes in a BIG box!
Jun seems a bit old for this time of year, but we had a July Build that came with the FBr fix already applied. (And even if it is not, it seems a relatively painless procedure now.)
Alas, that set also came with Green Blobs - and developed an ever-increasing Pink Tint as the panel aged.
We exchanged it for a second unit - this one an October Build - but while it has Slightly Less of the Green problem, it has considerably MORE Pink Tint, and right out of the box!
Son's 50" S30 also came with Green Blob, so as much as I LIKE the price / value in these sets, would NOT be willing to buy one without a good return policy (CostCo gives you 90 days), AND a handy means to take the set back should it prove faulty...
