1/2/12 - 1:30PM PST -- Update on TV pickups
Deal is dead as far as ordering, but people are still successfully picking up non-canceled existing orders at some Best Buy stores. Very YMMV, but if you got a ready for pickup e-mail and haven't received a cancellation, check your BB account online. If your TV still shows as "Ready for pickup" it's probably worth taking the time to drive to the store and see if they'll give it to you. This is a better deal than any of the Black Friday TV deals.
SQURETRADE WARRANTY CLARIFICATION:
VALUE OF YOUR COVERAGE - The total value of your Care Plan is in most cases equal to the purchase price of your item. For every valid claim filed against your item for which we provide repair services, the total value of your coverage is reduced by the cost of the repair services rendered. In the event a valid claim is filed with us and repair costs are estimated to exceed the current value of your Care Plan - the balance of your Care Plan value will be offered instead."
This means, eveytime they repair your item, they subtract the amount from the total insured amount and what is left is what you will get for subsequent repair or for replacement. If you bought insurance for this TV for $500, If the first repair cost them $300, For a subsequent repairs, you are only covered till $200 (500 - 300) and if they cannot repair, they will Only give you $200 for replacement.
Firmware update is available with instructions: Here [lg.com] Make sure to check the Last two characters of the model before updating the firmware.
If you did not get a ready for pick up email use the ORDER STATUS link in your confirmation email to check. It showed ready for me even tho I didn't get the email!
Also, if you have used the AMEX link, love, whatever.. I got an instant email from AMEX saying I got $10 back.
Now it is really ALIVE. In Stock Online...
Amazon will PM TVs (via phone), they will charge the delivery cost too for this though, you could probably get that off later
Previous wiki said no component inputs -- that's not true. It has TWO component inputs. I know because I just opened ours after getting home. LG's site confirms there are 2 component inputs. http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/televisions/LG-lcd-tv-42LK450.jsp As well as DVI
Reviewer says 2 components. No DVI, but who cares? : http://www.amazon.com/review/R367A4L0TFWJVU/ref=cm_cr_dp_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B004OOQ8CW&nodeID=172282&tag=&linkCode=
