    My roommate and I just carried his new (my old) 32" Toshiba upstairs to the living room. I HATE carrying that thing and will not miss it at all.

    In contrast, once we got my new Panny 53WX42 out of the box, moving it into the theater room was a breeze. The room is on the ground floor which helps. But even lifting it up off of the box and up the one step into the house was so EASY. The weight is evenly distributed and there's no huge piece of glass making things awkward. And being on wheels is a plus, too..

    It's always a joy moving my 40-inch Mitsubishi picture tube set, which I'll have to do again the end of next month!

    Tough to beat LCD or DLP front-projectors here ... a box that weighs between 3-25 pounds that you can easily pick up and carry across the room...

    I would sell mine before moving and buy a new 16x9 afterwards, but the one I want doesn't seem to exist yet.

    My 32" widescreen TV weighs around 80-90 pounds and my friend and I had to carry it up 3 sets of stairs to get it to my appartment.
    So there we are...going up the stairs, me with my back to the stairs when suddenly I trip on a step and land flat on my ass. That wouldn't have been so bad hadn't the corner of the TV hit me squarly in the balls!
    If I ever had to lift that TV again it will be too damn soon [​IMG]

    My direct-view WEGA clocks in at 186 pounds, and the stand upon which it is perched adds another 80 pounds to the mix--and it's not on rollers.

    I'd like to move it to another wall, but I'd have to make arrangements: Ask a friend over, lift the unit off the stand, move the stand, and then pick the top- and front-heavy WEGA back up and across the room and onto the stand.

    The thought of moving to another place sends shudders through me.

    I have a 36" Sony Wega and it weighs over 200 pounds. Me and my buddy had to carry it up three flights of stairs. I am still not sure how I am going to get it downstairs when I need to move.
