I bought one from the same source (Home Audio Video Center or whatever it’s called on Amazon) for $200 more a month ago. The box arrived cleaner than me picking up a panel at the local Best Buy. Box was mint condition. They ship it on a crate to a local distribution center to you. Then it gets loaded on the van. Van company they used here had the box right side up like it should be and helped me get it in the house. I was nervous as hell too. Never ordered something like this online. But to my surprise, whole process was perfect. Box and panel arrived in 100% condition. My other panels, picking them up myself had at least some kind of box impact. Not on the 940, wasn’t a mark on the box.
Watched Aquaman on 4K disc tonight. Oh my goodness. That’s the best and most vibrant film I’ve watched to show off the incredible blacks, color, and contrast of the 940E yet. It was truly stunning. Movie is a bit cornball (lowest common denominator script, lines, etc) but man does it show off how damn good this panel is. It’s an absolutely incredible panel. They did a damn good job on the disc mastering too. Hairs, skin detail, all the colors, reference quality. All the colors under the sea were mind blowing. Best PQ I have seen so far on a 4K disc. Like a 100 mile fastball that the panel belted out of the stadium. Blown away by the panel. My friend with a 940D pushing me towards this (for many thousands less compared to the projector/screen I wanted or OLED) was right. First scene with rain and lightning strikes were incredible on Atmos too.
