Shipping box of Fujitsu's

hi,

as you all know I am gonna buy me a Fujitsu 42 inch Plasma screen. It will either be shipped from germany to amsterdam or I am gonna pick one up in the UK.

I have a question about the box. I saw a Pioneer box and it had 2 ' protections ' on the box. They could show if the box had been ' not taken care off ' , i.e. one of the protection labels would show RED if the plasma had been moved horizontally. Does anyone know if Fujitsu also has these things ( what are they called ) on the box ?

thanx

tip n tell are layered coloured sand most people use em, MAW will know if Fujitsu use them, If the coloured sand has been mixed you can sign for it and risk or rejected the delivery on your dorr step and see what happens!

I'm still not sure what the point is of these "tip n tell" indicators?
In the Pioneer brochures that arrived with my 504, I think it was the speaker manual that stated I should lay the plasma screen down on a soft surface to install the speakers.
So if it's OK to lay it face down to install the speakers, why have an indicator on the box showing whether it's been tipped horizontally?

I think if it is left on its side for a period of time it can cause glass to crack and break, some one was going to post pics of what is it like when one goes!

That's a fair point.
I guess if it was left in that position, the weight over time could case the frame/glass to buckle/break.

I think this main issue is transporting layed down as this can cause the glass to rattle or bounce during delivery...

Layed my Panny down quite a bit whilst installing teminal boards and fitting brackets on and off a few times...no probs, just be careful...

Excuse me for a dumb question but why does Plasmas use glass of all materials?

Several LCD screens use some type of plastic screen instead of glass.

They use glass for rigidity, the gas used to create the plasma gets locally hot, and is not at atmospheric pressure. There is no tilt/shock sensor on my VHA boxes BTW, but they are stupendously packed, in a polystyrene lined tray as well as the usual box.
