OK here's the lowdown so far:
Sunday 8/11...emailed seller about TV
Sunday 8/11, hours later.....seller responded and answered questions.
Sunday 8/11 placed order
Sunday 8/11 Received shipping notice
Monday 8/12 midnight..shipping update that TV was at local terminal hour away
Tuesday 8/13 Talked to shipper, informed TV was dropped off to a local carrier with smaller trucks who deliver residential
Wednesday 8/14 Received TV around 11:30 am.
Perfect condition, factory sealed, brand new. TV is installed, up and running with no issues.
Only one problem. The DIYSG Fusion 8 MTM dual 8" 98.5 dB sensitive center channel that I recently built won't fit under it.
I grabbed a very low profile JBL A135C just in case so I'll hook it up and see how it sounds and looks. It's a huge downgrade so might look for something more capable.
Also, just registered the TV with Samsung for warranty. Have to activate the Square Trade 3 year warranty now.
