I'll tell ya one thing...I would shop at FS or BB over Walmart any day.
Years ago I bought a 32" Samsung TV @ F/S..; crt style so we"re looking at 100-120 lbs. The salesman at the time of purchase told us "if you have a problem we"ll give you another 1 while it"s being fixed"
What he neglected to tell us was that F/S washes their hands of you after 30 days. Soo my luck being what it is the picture tube goes awall after 4 months. Contact the local store and shure enough they"ll give us a lowner and help us with warranty claims...BUT we have to pay and arrange shipping to Georgia to have the picture tube fixed.
I never even bothered trying to get a shipping estimate.
Unleash the gates of hell, my wife (no conscience or kuddoos) raises bloody kane on a Saturday morning at the start of a major sale.....they delivered a direct replacement that afternoon.
We"re still watching it today.
