It took a while, but I was also able to return my EW40T4FW set ordered from TARGET.COM and exchanged it for the DWM40F1G1 listed at $429.99. I had already opened my delivered set so I packed everything back into the box and headed to my local store.
I had to wheel my set to the electronics after going to customer service where I was initially told that they couldn't do anything about it and I had to return through the website. I politely asked them to check the DCPI number for stock in store because I wanted to compare the boxes. Back in electronics they verified that they had the ones with the 120hz pictured on the box versus the one I received and that they were the same DCPI of 008-09-0731. I made sure to ask for an even exchange.
Since mine was already opened they had to verify the serial # of the return so that took a while. At first they were gonna give me $15 dollars back for some reason (I assume tax) but a manager came in and just did an even exchange. Haven't had time to test out my set, but so far am just happy that I was able to switch out the set. Hope my story helps anybody else that wants to give it a try.
I also exchanged mine in the store with a different TV but same DPCI and refunded $18 cash (the clerk said it was for shipping costs being refunded). I'm glad they let me swap it because the first one had some bad pixels and bad remote and the packing slip was for someone in Los Angeles.
I was able to exchange the EW40T4FW set for the DWM40F1G1, with no problems. I just took the packing slip in with the DPCI, found the proper model that matched its and as everyone has said they have the same DPCI for both models. I set it up. Picture is okay with a few adjustments.
Let me clarify guys, I ordered both my sets through ebay, and had both sets shipped to my mom's place. According to my brother, the two sets are in different size boxes with different labeling. Based on the pictures of the sets on the packaging, one set appears to have a thinner bezel than the other. He compared the thin bezel set to the Insignia I purchased for my mom last BF at BB, which does have a thin bezel. I haven't seen the sets myself. Therefore, I will confirm all this information tomorrow once I go visit. HTH
Edit 12/8/13: Finally went over my mom's place and confirmed that I got a EW40T4FW and a DWM40F1G1. I will try to exchange the EW40T4FW at my local store. Hopefully all goes well for me, as it did for sreeves3. Oh, another thing, the thick bezel set was originally meant for someone in San Jose, as I got the wrong packing slip attached to the box. I wonder if the person that got my packing slip received the thin bezel model….just wondering...
I received a wrong packing slip also would you happen to reside in Olivehurst?
I received the "correct" TV and am pleasantly surprised by it. Picture quality is not bad and I have no use for the remote anyway (which is clunky and 80s looking) since I'm using my ATT Uverse remote for the TV & cable box. Bought the Squaretrade 4-yr warranty with a 35% code so hopefully it will hold out for a few years, and if not I'll get my money "back." Yay SD!
