The top picture looks pretty impressive. But the poor wall in the bottom picture

Orchidflower, I am getting a new LED HDTV delivered next Saturday (got rid of my two older sets via a local thrift store who came and hauled them out). I bought my new TV from the husband of a friend. I paid somewhat more for the set by purchasing it from a small, local audio/electronics dealer, but he (the husband) and a friend of his are going to install it on my wall as a courtesy. Friend has said that if I have any future problems (I am always doing something with the settings and remote and dvd), I have only to call, and she will dispatch him (we live five minutes apart).
I do not think he is aware of the extent of her generosity, but I would not avail myself of the latter offer in any case. Eventually I figure stuff like this out for myself although it might take a day or two. Or three.

"Did this price include doing anything with the cables? As others mentioned, that can add up fast."

I don't think so. And I live exactly 10 minutes drive from the place.
I'm going along with the poster who said if they sold more service calls they would sell more tv's. I think it's ridiculous the gouging they are trying to get away with. Even the girl who was in the tv section and gave me the details totally agreed (on the Q.T.) that they really overprice this one. I am totally disappointed in them.

By the way, I know Best Buy a couple years ago has or had just started a group that searches the internet for anything about the company (complaints, compliments and so forth). I hope to heaven they see these posts about how much they are gouging folks on their installation charges and how stupidly greedy it is = total turn-off to Best Buy.
Please consider adopting a rescue animal. So very many need a furr-ever home and someone to love them! And if we all spay/neuter our pets there won't be an overpopulation to put to death.

I like this one: Software Install - Configure Software, Software Updates

Install ONE software title for $129.99.
  • Determine computer compatibility for, install/repair and configure 1 software title
  • Perform necessary software updates
  • Create desktop, start menu and quick launch bar access shortcuts
  • Software NOT included

They must sell some of this stuff or it wouldn't be offered.

I agree, my suggestion is probably overkill, but I live in California.


Also, I was thinking of 52" to 55" set.

Also, I agree with the other posts, a stand would be better. On the wall, the viewing angle could be an issue.
