Re: TV transport
I ordered my 55" from Amazon and it came in a van with two people to set it up for me. My only disappointment is I forgot to tell the guys to NOT take the box away. I like to keep the original boxes at least through the warranty period in case I have to send it back or out for repairs.
I would never attempt to deal with anything over 40" or so without another person for one reason and one reason only: the new models are so thin, you risk damaging them with only one person carrying them due to flexing. Flat panel displays are not those 3" thick slabs anymore. Their 1-2" at the thickest and it doesn't take much to torque one a little too much.
Don't try to put any TV in the Jeep that can't either stand upright (with appropriate straps to hold it that way) or lay totally flat. If you attempt to place it at an angle, you're asking to break the panel.
It's OK if you have to tilt it to get it thought the gate opening since it's narrower, but make sure it lay evenly on the fully folded seats and cargo floor. If the box indicates which way the screen faces, place it facing up since the back of the TV is the strongest and will be less likely to be stressed by the uneven surface between the cargo floor and the folded seats. That way, it can support the screen properly.
Don't set anything on the TV box when it's laying flat.
Drive home immediately and take it inside as soon as you can, especially in cold weather. Give the TV at least an hour to acclimate to room temperature before powering it on.
Never turn the TV on when it's not sitting upright since the power supplies get very warm and all that heat will make the TV screen more prone to breakage.
Also, don't skimp on a wall mount if you use one. Get one rated for a minimum of double the weight of what your TV is. Never run a mount up to the limit. So, if your TV weighs 50 pounds, get a mount that is rated for at least 100 pounds. Those mounts have pretty much no headroom with the weight ratings, and some barely make it to the maximum. I would avoid a fully articulated mount (one that can pull out and swing left and rihgt) with TVs over 45". Those tend to fail with heavier units.
Finally, if you have it sitting on a stand, be sure to anchor it so it can't tip over if the dog, kids, earthquake or drunken stupidity that involves the words "hey, watch this" decide to act in tandem with gravity.
