Guys, Just FYI, I would like to share what I noticed about the stand.
The picture I'm posting is a side view of the 70", taken from BestBuy's site.
If you open a notepad window (any window really) on your computer and put the vertical edge of the window next to the TV in the image, you will see that the TV is perfectly vertical.
But if you put the horizontal edge of the window next to the lowest points of the stand image, you will see that the lowest point on the front side is lower than the back side.
And this is about how much my TV tilts.
This tilt may be by design.
I'm going to keep the TV either way, but I'm really really curious.
I am going to contact Sony, and let you know what they say.
doing this test, when I measure the middle center of the tv. that is off, which would compensate for the stand being slighting forward in this picture.
I cannot comment whether or not my tv tilts yet since it's sitting on the ground on my carpet so I can't give it a fair assessment.
