I purchased this to replace a smaller TV I gave to my granddaughter. It arrived in three days of ordering it online!
I slid it up the stairs by myself, a feat in itself--I'm a grandma with a bad knee! I opened the box, lifted it out, put it on the stand, no problems at all. Just make sure that you pay attention to the directions on the outside of the box to keep it upright and lift off the outer box top! I popped the batteries in the remote and turned it on.
It asked for input source and since I don't watch TV much, I don't have cable, so I selected "antenna." It did a search and didn't find ANY channels, I was so disappointed! Then I realized that you have to have a set of rabbit ears (antenna) attached to it before it will find stations--DOH! After doing the SECOND channel search, I ended up with like 20 stations--no need for cable for me!
The picture is sharp and clear and the sound for me is fine, as I haven't been spoiled by previously having surround sound. The only thing I did notice is that it gets VERY hot--it raised the temperature in my office (12' x 12') a couple degrees. But with winter coming, that may just be a GOOD thing!
I'm looking forward to my granddaughter coming over tomorrow and being able to play her Disney Princess game again when I babysit! I'm also excited about my son seeing the quality of a TV I bought from--WalMart!! He used to sell big screen TVs at a large chain store, so I'm curious to see what he says about my $518 WalMart special!
So, bottom line--I'm old, have a bad knee and I was able to bring this up to the second floor, pull it out of the box, lift it onto the stand, set it up and program it all by myself. As I said, I do not have cable or satellite, which would take much more technical skills. But, I was pleased that I could do it myself without having to ask my techie son for assistance--GO ME!! Buy it, you can't go wrong!!
