Fortunately, the television was fine. No complaints at all.
I bought three televisions today from Wal-Mart for work. Two 24" Vizios and this 32" model. The first two were obviously brand new and, when powered on, went through the "first time setup" routine.
On the third one, this one...
When I opened the box and removed the top piece of styrofoam, I noticed the television didn't have the plastic cover around it. Then I noticed the batteries were already installed in the remote and the base of the television was lying kind of crooked underneath the TV. None of the protective film that is always found around the frame on new LCD/LED televisions was there. When I turned this one on it went immediately to a cable channel. The tuner had already been set to cable and the auto channel search had already been done. The audio and video settings had also been modified from factory default.
If Wal-Mart is going to sell a used television (or a return), then it should be sold at a discount and marked as *NOT* new. This is the second time this has happened with me at the Wal Mart in Murray, KY. The first time was with a set of cordless phones that, when I removed them from the box, already had batteries installed and a bunch of phone numbers stored in caller ID.
Not a good practice, Wal Mart.
