Exactly, that is why you always inspect and power on to double check........No Exceptions.....No matter where you get a TV.
There was a guy in the Pioneer Elite thread (plasma) who got a TV dropped off from a store front. He noticed a few days after delivery the screen had a small crack in it. That deal did not turn out good last I remember.
Inspections should be done on all goods that are expensive. Cars, houses, boats, motorcycles, furniture, appliances, and yes televisions.
