Great thanks a lot for the info. Does anyone know if Amazon requires you to be there, open the box and then sign off that there is no damage like Paul'sTV requires for this set? I can't take off from work to accept delivery so that's why I didn't go through Paul'sTV (they told me it was mandatory white glove delivery). It looks like Amazon does not make it mandatory from what I can see.
Others have posted about being sure that you are there to inspect it. That's for your protection. History tells us that enough arrive damaged that you don't want to take a chance of having the doorman accept it for you and then you discover that it's shattered. After all, how would Amazon or the shipper know that you didn't drop it while trying to hang it on the wall, etc.
An option that you might want to consider is to have it delivered to someone that is at home that would take the time to examine it for cracks and plug it in. Another is for it to be held at the local shipping office and for you to go get it. Sure, it's a pain but a lot less of a pain over having a shattered screen and no way to prove that it was delivered that way.
