    hi,
    i'm picking up my philips 329986 lcd tv tonight.

    does anyone know if there is a problem with laying the box flat in a car.

    the journey is less than a mile but i'm worried that it might need to be transported vertically which won't fit in my car.

    can anyone help?

    As long as it's well packed, it should be fine.

    But to take it less than one mile, it won't be a problem.

    I transported my Toshiba 26WL46P flat in the back of my car. The journey was around 15 minutes and I've had no problems. I'd suggest that once you unpack the TV you leave it stood in place for around 10 minutes before turning it on to let if adjust back to room temperature and let everything settle back in to place although it's probably not really necessary. Better safe than sorry.

    Looking at your post you've already done this, but just for completeness it is worth noting which side of the box the actual screen is on and making sure that it uppermost when lying the box flat. You wouldn't want a seatbelt fixing or something on the floor of the car to bend the box and stress the screen. The back of the set is more robust.

    The way I see it is that LCDs on Laptops can be placed any which way, is there something they've done to the TVs that mean you can't do it ?
