I'm about to purchase a new tv in about 2-3 weeks. I've narrowed it down to two models the Samsung HCM553 55" and the Panasonic PT45LC 45" LCD screen My problem is that I live on the second floor and the tv would need to be delivered upstairs however there is a sharp turn to get into the apartment and it's looking like the only way to get the samsung in would be to possibly take it out of the box and turn it on its side because of it's large size. So now i'm wondering before I buy it how safe that would be and if any major damage could be done to the tv by doing that. The store of course doesn't think so but they just want to make a sale and it would make no difference to them once they have the money. I'd have to sign a waiver for the delivery people to bring it here and I am extremely hesistant to do that unless I can be assured it's safe. If its going to be a problem then I would buy the panasonic since it's lightweight and would be much easier to get up the stairs however it's $1,000 more than the samsung and I would prefer not to have to spend that much more on a smaller screen but I don't want to be out $2,000 if something goes wrong. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
