Did you get Amazon to price match to $1499 delivered?
I ordered with Amazon on a Paul's TV price match . . . 3 days and 20 hours later my 50ST50 showed up at the door. When I ordered with Amazon on Saturday afternoon, the web site said it would be delivered between 9 AM and noon Wednesday, four days later,. . . Showed up at today with Pilot at 10:30 am . . . Amazon is great, but Pilot "white glove" service showed itself a sham again. I had to argue with the delivery personnel for,them to open the box and plug the tv in to make sure glass was not cracked and was operational. I had to argue with them on their own paperwork which described the service they were to perform . . . They said they never opened boxes and checked units . . . Says they do right on the paperwork, but they argued and argued for me to sign to refuse opening the box . . .
I refused to refuse. Amazon is great, but their use of Pilot is ridiculous. They are losing a lot of great sales for the $100 delivery up charge. Amazon was great though when I had a problem, when I had a tv delivered from Amazon with dead pixels at Christmas. That day Amazon sent another tv and had the bad one picked up when the new one arrived. The good news this time? Amazon delivery on time, less than four full days from my order, and in time for the Olympics (though I am running the 100 hours of panel prep) . . . And no dead pixels this time! Panasonic quality on the ****50s is amazing! And Amazon is superb on fast delivery. And, Amazon makes it right immediately when there is a problem. No one else is coming close to the quality and speed of Amazon in the rare cases there is a problem. No one compares with Amazon on average speed of delivery after order.Edited by Rhetor - 7/25/12 at 6:45pm
