mine was shipped a few days ago too. they're using a courier called CEVA, which i've never heard of before. but they supposedly will call you up a few days before it actually gets to your place and schedule a time and day for them to deliver it. at least thats what i've read about them.
You are correct. I've bought TV's from Fry's before. I'm in the Northeast of the US and it took about a week to ship. It was delivered by CEVA. They called me 2 days prior to delivery to see if anyone would be home to sign for the the delivery. Then the day of delivery they called again to confirm the time they will deliver and they arrived on time. TV was delivered without any damage.
The TV "shipped" a few days ago but I still do not have a tracking number. I am assuming someone has to be available to accept delivery of the TV. So it would be nice to know when it will be delivered. Anyone have any experience with ordering a TV from Frys and average delivery times?
Call Fry's customer service with your order number and ask for the tracking number. I did this yesterday and mine is slated to arrive up here in CT on 2/12.
How is this comparable to TCP55UT50 for $749 @ Costco? Do the price difference of $150 justifies having WiFi-Inbuilt & 4 3d passive glasses?
Well, for starters this TV is LED LCD vs the TCP55UT50 which is Plasma. Personally I prefer LED LCD over Plasma, your preferences may vary.
Both have wifi and 3D BUT this is a passive 3D and the TCP55UT50 is active 3D. That is a big difference. I prefer passive for a few reasons:
1) I wear glasses and polarized lenses (which is what passive uses) are eat to fit over my glasses and they even sell clip on lenses.
2) Passive 3D glasses are MUCH cheaper than active 3D glasses as they are simply polarized lenses. Active 3D glasses cost quite a bit per pair and you need to charge/replace the batteries in them.
So personally, I would pay $150 more to get the technology I like (LED LCD) and passive 3D so that I can watch comfortably.
You'll end up spending that $150 on active 3D glasses when/if your pair breaks or on batteries to use them. Besides I haven't noticed a difference in passive v. active 3D quality but that could be because I can't ever get the active glasses to fit right over my glasses.
WOW!! Just got my tv yesterday and i am impressed!! The picture is very good, very bright LED, and connecting to the internet was very easy. I connected to my Pandora acct. and was listening to some old school rock.
I am connecting my PC to it today to watch movies and games.
This is the nicest TV i've ever owned, i hope it lasts!
I can get a Squaretrade extended warranty for $120 for 4 yrs., is this a good deal?
Or should i wait?
How long are these tv's supposed to last?
just wanted to let everyone know that i got my tv today in NYC. no issues with CEVA. they delivered it at 1:50PM with a time window of 11AM-3PM. no issues with the packaging. no visible damage to the outside box. haven't taken it out yet because i have to move it to my new apt in a few weeks but i might just take it out and test it anyway.
