    What have most people done with their original plasma packaging. Have you kept it for future transportation or are there safe ways to transport the plasma without the original packaging (obviously it has to stay upright)

    Living in a London flat space is obviously at a premium.

    got my viera monday, told to keep boxes for at least one month for returns , though they said i could dump the stand box, just managed to get stuff in attic, but delivery guy said i could slit box sides and fold flat and tape up if it has to go back, will keep boxes just incase we move .

    Fold up the main box and tuck behind wardrobe, bottom box and packing up in the loft.

    Exactly the same here. The PW6 box had 4 removable plastic things. With those removed, the bottom drops out. Flattened box and base behind the wardrobe in the spare room, foam stuff and bags up in the loft.

    Same here too.

    The Viera boxes are the same, a great bit of cardboard box engineering I thought. :)

    I'm not sure I would totally trust those pastic clips when I have to put the box back together to move it. Seems like they are the only things stopping the whole lot falling through. I think I would beef it up a bit with some duct tape or the like.

    you can get travel bags and flight cases which most manufacturers will supply for service collections... but will add delay to collection time.

    I believe if you have a warranty than loans you a screen you sinply use the packaging it came in, I've thrown all but the polystyrine blocks away so when i de mount mine i can stand it up :)
