I am negotiating with several companies on 2 different RPTVs and one of the stores(a local Tweeters)has given me a price on a new 57HX81 that has me seriously considering buying from a local B&M instead of going online. They also will deliver to me inside my house for only $40. Here's the rub: I was told that they unbox/uncrate the TVs at the warehouse and load them onto the trucks for delivery sans boxes. Since I absolutely do not want a demo unit or customer return, how can I be absolutely sure that I will be getting a minty fresh unit??? Is there anything like a front projector hour meter that I can access via the user or service menus that will tell me how much the CRTs were used on the unit? ------------------ Take Care, merc ---------------- DFAST, 5C, DVI, HDCP, SafeAudio, Macrovision and Lewinski!!!
