The BB in Long Beach, the old WOW center at PCH and 2nd st. did price match Adorama without blinking an eye. Again, the salesman was good and I had a good feeling about what I was buying.
total bummer, sorry to hear that. I've been considering looking into a cable lock of some sort.
Well my TV was wall-mounted and they were able to unmount it and take off with a 100lb TV in the pouring rain.

No I do have renters, so I should get it back, after i pay my $500 deductible. They also made off with my laptop, iPad. Houston sucks,

They said they would. Funny thing about break ins is that you hear it happens all the time to someone else and you shrug your shoulders and move on. When it happens to you, totally different feeling. Unfortunately you are always some one else to someone else.

yup. I hope they used a pick up truck and laid it flat (they didnt steal the stand that was sitting in the corner. they did make off with my remote).It was raining all day. So hopefully that made the TV useless. What scares me is that i happened to come home for lunch and come back home again at 3pm which is unusual for me - so they managed to pull this of in a 2 hour window

It lowered slightly my annual renter's insurance premium, and it provides peace of mind for me.
You might want to check into something like that as well.
My apartment situation is something similar. I had Chad come and calibrate it from Ohio so it sucks that I lost that effort. Alarm system is a must - especially when you own expensive electronics. I would never have dreamed that my TV of all things would get stolen. Laptop, iPad understandable. They ignored my Xbox, PS3, HTPC that was connected to the plasma, Epson projector, external HD, denon reciever but went only for the TV. It scares me now that they know what I have and whats to stop them from coming back? I'm now looking to get out of here. I'll take the money from the insurance and wait before replacing everything
