you will have walls to patch. How about saving money by setting it on a suitable stand? Yeah I know, new special purpose stands are priced as fine furniture. I'd sure try to find something reasonable that would work.
It's only your money. My 1st big screen was quoted with installation. A lot of wires, yes. These things can be decoded by careful study of the olperating manuals. Once having seen it, I'd do it myself rather than pay substantial money.
Thanks to everyone's advice yesterday, I am going with the 42" Panasonic. Now - I need more help. Both Circuit City and Best Buy want between $400 and $500 to install the TV. They have assured me the average person is not capable of doing this on their own. Am I being taken for a ride? I was ready to order from TigerDirect, mount and all - until they brought up installation. Are they being truthful? I need help ASAP. I have to make a decision today.
