How do you quickly check a tv for dead pixels?

Hi, I'm about to order a tv from adorama and I'd like to know what is a quick way to check for dead pixels when you turn it on before you sign and accept the tv when it gets delivered.

Highly doubt the delivery person is going to wait while you unbox the tv, set it up, and hook it up to a source to play your clip. Most companies have a dead pixel policy anyways. Honestly if your buying a quality brand this really should not be a problem. I have not had a dead pixel in years, granted I am not looking for them either. I just think the technology has matured where it's not really as big of deal.

The delivery guy will never wait for you to check for pixels or even take the tv out of the box. You do a visual inspection of the box and you sign for it. If something is wrong with the tv you contact the seller , if he refuses to help you contact your CC and eventually the manufacturer.
These delivery guys have daily goals to meet and they'd rather take the tv back than wait for you to do the nit picking inspection
If you are not comfortable buying online just buy locally and pay taxes.

Oh. The reason I ask this is because I've come across 2 posters on this thread whose deliverymen allowed them to set up their tvs before they signed for them http://slickdeals.net/f/8153986-65-samsung-un65js8500-4k-suhd-3d-smart-led-hdtv-1900-free-shipping?page=12

It will depend on who the delivery company is and the driver. Even if they let you set it up before you sign, most would have policies along the lines of opening the box constitutes acceptance of the package.

Basically, if the box is damaged refuse the package otherwise you'll probably be fine.
