    Thanks Sikenny, had already done that and the cheapest price i could find was $299.00 (not too bad) but to ship to UK. was &499.00 extra !!! could I not just go on holiday and bring it back as hand luggage !!! it would be cheaper...
    How much would easyjet charge for extra weight approx 3/4 of a tonne !!!! (Actually 85lbs including box) ??? Hmmmmm.........No !!!

    So US. is out unless somebody knows something I dont..
    Has no-one bought this stand or a similar one here in the UK. ?? I really want to buy the Sammy but the storage problem for me would be a nightmare.........

    (Xbox,PS2,GC,Sky+,DVD Recorder,VCR,Surround Sound and last but not least Centre speaker !! all on a Kenmark
    3 tier glass shelf unit - just about!!)

    Can you buy the samsung glass shelves for the right hand side to make a pair ?? are they even handed ? has anyone got this set up and if so how does it look ? Sammy owners, Misty etc - what have you lot done ?? any pics would be great..
    Sorry to go on but this would really help out and I cant be the only one who would have a storage problem.

    Cheers Paul.........

    RPH,

    Make sure you find a company that will ground ship the item, it will be a lot cheaper. Takes about a month to come though!

    Be aware that if customs spot it, and they most likely will. You will be charged 17.5% vat and 5% import duty. I did not check the duty, just look that up on their web site some items have different duty.

    RPH, :oops: Error glass shelves do not fit both sides look below :oops:

    Yes you can use the glass shelf on both sides, so if you bought an extra one I think it would look good. I am thinking of doing this when I see them for sale. I saw in one thread somewhere that said they were told the cost will be around the £100 mark.

    Only thing would be the silver pole between the shelves would be at the back on the right hand set of shelves

    Beef,

    You got me thinking and I have measured the shelves and you are right this will not work I stand corrected. :oops: The bar does not go to the back but as the shelves are not square (I thought they were) the right side would be wrong.

    Please look at the word doc I did.

    You can use this doc to play, turning the tables etc.

    I have displayed them as they would be either side, and yes we have a problem. If you want shelves for the right of this TV they will have to be made to go on the right.

    The shelves are 17" deep and 19" wide.
    (The bottom part of the glass shelves, which the feet are on, are triangular and will only fit in the positions shown in the diagram)

    We will have to wait and see if Samsung produce right hand shelves

    i haven't got my sammy yet but i am pretty sure about what i am going to do--make a stand.there are enough chrome poles of different sizes and pieces of glass in b&q plus any neccessary fittings that it should be pretty straight forward to make something that looks professional at a fraction of the price.
