Cool Finally Bought an OLED - Sony A8F

Well my 65" Panny went down for the 2nd time after getting the main board replaced. It had a year warranty so I think I might get it replaced then sell it. So I pick up a 65 A8F from BestBuy. Ok so I have to tell you guys the story on this one. I was looking online and seen a 65 LG C8 on for $2499, it was an open box. I didn't see any Sony deals so I added the C8 to my cart. I wanted to check out BB in store to see if there were any deals and also to ask them if I could get the TV sent to the store so I could save on delivery. So as I was talking to a sales rep, he asked me if I was interested in Sony and I said for sure but there weren't any Sonys on sale. We were in the Sony section and he says well there's a customer return in the back, would you be interested? I said really which one? He says the same as this one, an A8F. I said for sure. In the meantime his partner is with us and goes in the back. He says there's no box but we'll bubble wrap it really good. Hmmm, I thought that was a bit weird but what the hell it's a customer return. How much can go wrong in a month? So I get it paid for (this is where those gift cards pay off, all $2200 of them) and also get a great deal on the 4 yr warranty. They help me get it into the car (it's my wife's 300) and the guy knew right away to fold down the back seats and put it in through the trunk. After a little bit of frustration it's in. So I get home all happy and tell the wife to come out and help me bring it in. We get it in the living room and I start cutting off the bubble wrap, looks ok so far. Wait what's this? I see some stickers on the back and 2 of them say demo on them! I'm like wtf?? So I get it up on the TV stand and turn it on. Bang, it's in torch mode. Next the Sony demo starts playing. These guys never even turned that shit off. On a more positive note after I put in cinema mode, the picture was fantastic, just beautiful. Sigh, well it's going back tomorrow morning. On top of that I see a big dent in the bottom right hand corner, sheesh. I tested out a few things including my Xbox One X, wow looks awesome also. So the next morning I take it back and the 2 guys that sold me it weren't around so I told my story to another employee. He then talked to his manager. After all was said and done, for about a hundred bucks more I'm getting a new one in a box. Will be here on Thursday!
