For the hefty pricetag of ~US$5700, you will receive..
Well, for one, a really sore back. This box is big, heavy
and awkward. Please do NOT try to handle this by yourself, it is definitely
a two person job.
Also included is two other boxes which contain the speakers
which mount to the side of the TV and the TV stand.
The stand is very simple to construct and al that is needed
to do is attach the two metal bars to the base plate with four screws,
slide the TV down onto the stand and screw the bars in place to the
TV. Very painless other than you will need a person to help you slide
the TV down on the bars carefully.
The accessory box contains the following:
- Instruction Manual & Warranty Registration Cards
- Remote Control w/ Batteries
- DVI Cable
- VGA to DVI Convertor Cable
- Stereo Audio Patch Cable
- Speaker Wires
- Power Supply w/ Outlet Cord
The included remote control is capable of controlling
every single feature from the comfort of your couch. It is also capable
of being programmed to control you non-Samsung DVD/VCR/Cable Box components.
One thing I was missing is the home theater center ability
which was not included with this remote. Seeing that most people will
be using this large TV in conjunction to a nice audio system, I thought
that it would be included.
And you get this rather large discussion piece to show
off to your friends and family. I can guarantee with this monitor you
will definitely get your fair share of oohs, aahs and wows from anyone
that sees it in action for the first time.
