Thank You Beach Camera. XBR65A8F This was my first purchase from Beach Camera. I bought an “Open Box” Sony XBR65A8F for a bit more than 1/2 off the normal price. I received a huge flat screen shipping box from the FedEx driver. Inside the shipping box was a Sony factory box that was blitzed on its original sale by a pallet truck. The box ripped open from the back destroying the carton, but only leaving a tiny scrape/scratch along the rear of the set on the lower main board section. No big deal. Had it been hit in the glass, it would have been toast. The TV set inside was 100% brand new. The only indication of use was a repacked power cord that was used to verify the set was operational for resale. Instead of patching up the trashed Sony box, the box was put into a super heavy duty shipping box. It arrived safely and is stunning in every way. I highly recommend OLED sets as the picture quality is everything you’ve always wanted. Even though the set is brand new, the manufacturer categorized open box as used sets since they are sold at an extreme discount, and therefore voids the 1 year warranty. I could care less since I purchased the available 3 year warranty for a fair price. Most authorized dealers do no give free shipping on open box sets, but I paid nothing extra at Beach Camera. This was an online order and nobody was contacted as everything was seamless and good. I cringed when I saw the set box damage, but when I saw it was the back with a superficial scrape on the plastic, I started laughing, because I just saved enough money to pay all expenses on a one week cruise for 2 with airfare. Not bad! Thank you Beach Camera. I love my new Sony XBR65A8F.
