The LG C8 I ordered through Newegg/Gameliquidations arrived yesterday in good shape. I had called Gameliquidations earlier in the day to make sure I understood the return policy, just in case the TV arrived damaged. They said I had 4 days, which was typical for FedEx. TV arrived double boxed, packed as if it came straight from the manufacturer. Since it was double boxed, the packing was undoubtedly better than what a local brick and mortar store would provide. So through the whole order processing and delivery I had nothing but a positive experience from Newegg/Gameliquidations. If the C8 fails now, it falls on LG.
Coming from watching a LG 1080p LED tv, needless to say, I was blown away by the C8 picture. A whole new viewing experience.
Lastly some have suggested that BB would possibly not honor the warranty if it was transported flat. This seems a bit silly since the LG instructions for attaching either the stand/base or a wall mounting bracket, pretty much tell you to lay the tv flat to perform these operations.
