Oh noe indeed.

I ordered my 27" Prima on christmas eve, and it arrived yesturday via purolator. There was a dent in the side of the box, which I didn't think much of at the time, since packaging on tv's tend to be overdone. However.. upon opening it, I found the left speaker to be smashed in.

I was on the phone for around 1 1/2 hours with futureshop's 1-800 call centre and ended up taking it back to a local futureshop. I just got my money back because I was so pissed.. :(

There was just one showing up online so I bought it. I will test it out for a month, and if it is no good, I will return it. No big deal.

I hope it is not the one that you just brought back though!

Yes, they call it "virtuall flat", although it is better than the standard TVs with it's "virtual flat"ness.

I've been checking for days as well. When I added it to my cart, I raced through the screens to get it, since I lost a couple of things like that during the madness of the boxing day sales.

Keep trying, another one might show up!
