[Tips] Buying HDTV on Amazon: Delivery Time
Customer reviews on Amazon are overwhelmingly positive about the delivery time and process for HDTVs. It is even possible for customers to schedule their own delivery times for most HDTVs. This particular policy includes a two to four hour window for delivery and applies to weekends as well as weekdays. When placing an order for an HDTV, Amazon’s detail page will explain how to schedule a delivery if that service is available for the product being ordered.
Enhanced Delivery via Amazon:
- Most HDTVs ordered from Amazon qualify for the enhanced delivery service.
- Amazon uses a common carrier for delivery and, with the enhanced delivery option, the carrier representative will unpack the TV and set it up, ensuring that it works properly and was not damaged during transport. This extra service for selected HDTV products is free of charge. It is important to include a contact phone number for the carrier representative when scheduling the delivery.
Samsung UN40ES6100 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz Slim LED HDTV (Black)
The Samsung HDTV available through Amazon has an excellent picture and sound quality, according to customer reviews, and it is also easy to set up the internet over LAN or Wi-Fi. This HDTV, however, has no 3D option and the regular remote that comes with the product tends to make typing a slow process. On sale for $797.99, the TV qualifies for Amazon’s low price guarantee, which means if the customer finds the same TV on an eligible website within 14 days of purchase, Amazon will credit the customer’s payment for the difference.
Toshiba 32C120U 32-Inch 720p 60Hz LCD HDTV (Black)
This smaller Toshiba is easy on the wallet at $249.99. Customers who are Amazon Prime members may receive free 2-day shipping on this item. Customer reviews indicate that the picture on this HDTV is good at default, but improves greatly when the energy saving setting is turned off and the backlight intensity is turned up. The screen has low reflection and the reception is excellent, making this product outstanding for the price. On the downside, this is not the best TV for a large room or noisy house as the maximum sound is not that high. Additionally, the remote that comes with the TV has small, poorly labeled buttons, according to some customer reviews.
Sony BRAVIA KDL46HX820 46-Inch 1080p 3D LED HDTV with Built-In Wi-Fi, Black
Sony’s Bravia is one of the best HDTV’s on the market, and consumers pay dearly for it, with the price of $1,698.00 from Amazon. Customers rave about the amazing picture with stunning colors and deep blacks. The 3D images are excellent, and the TV’s technology is able to synthesize 3D images from 2D. The product requires very little adjusting right out of the box. On the downside, some customer reviews indicate that although the screen is bright, it is a bit glossy, and the internet browser is not very user friendly. The overall consensus, however, is that this is an outstanding product for HDTV aficionados who are willing to pay the price.
Most Amazon HDTV products may be delivered in 1 to 2 days, and Amazon offers special free delivery deals from time to time. Overall, Amazon offers some of the best prices and sales for many HDTV products, along with fast delivery with few glitches.
