I bought it locally, the sales rep is an albokid and the manager is the ultimate A*S.
I will escalate that to the head office.

Post pics of the Ultimate ASS or it didn't happen. Ideally pics of Albokid holding the ASS. ::

Other than that those Panasonics are really nice. I considered one, but the Sammys were cheaper, bigger and really close to the PQ. I'm still floored when I see a decent BD on it. Avatar looks amazing now I've had it properly calibrated.

Fortunately, I took a pic, the ultimate ASS and albokid

Obvious se*ual tension...



Edit: A tech showed up yesterday, he replaced the P board (Power supply) that fried at power up. I'm back in business now

Glad it's all good, probably less hassle than a full replacement, having to unwrap all those new cables, put batteries into the new remote. ::

So I called the sales rep, he told me that they wont replace it and I have to get a waranty repair.
Always buy big ticket items with a credit card. If you buy it and it's broken, call them and tell them that if they don't replace it for a new working one you will call your credit card company and dispute the charge.
Visa, Mastercard, and Amex all have coverage for stores pulling **** like that.

Yes, I always use a credit card, mainly to rack up some miles/points. I've found that disputing charges with Visa is a complicated process but not so much with Amex.
Normally, Visa will not remove the charge right away, so you still have to pay it when due. After a long and painful process, and if all good, they will credit back the charge. I try to use Amex, as they have an automatic warranty extension (double the manufacturer warranty) and the charge dispute process is fairly easy.

I'm very pleased with the VT25 PQ after being calibrated to the recommended D-Nice settings.

But, my VT25's virginity has been taken away by a stranger, it will never be the same
