Are you suggesting that you would carry it home yourself?! Even if you had a friend to help, at 72 lbs. it has to be a real problem getting it into your home or apartment. Secondly, you need a nice size vehicle to transport it home and it still wouldn’t give the support needed if you go over bumps or uneven manhole covers that are 5" lower than the rest of the road.
A Fedex or UPS truck is heavy enough to handle bad roads and you have to assume the TV box is supported by so many other boxes that it can’t really shuffle around too much during transport.
If buying in a retail store, remember that the unit was already sent from the country of manufacture (either Korea, Mexico or China) to the distributor’s warehouse and then to the store, so it’s already gone through the rigors of shipping.
Years ago, quite often one would need a tech to come and adjust the “yolk” of the TV tube in order to correct imbalance during shipping. I’m not sure if that happens with these LCD’s. If they’re like the LCD computer monitors, you can do it yourself via the control panel.[/QUOTE]
