Sweet were back to TVs you can't move yourself. I wonder if it comes with a wall mount and I'm sure that they would want you to find four studs and a load bearing wall. I still want one. Then I could put my 40 inch in my bedroom.

I think for a TV that big it should have a hellova lot more inputs. And 300 pounds, wow, lol.

You may first need to buy the TV and then build a room around it!

I would not even think of wall mounting the unit nor put it in on a carpeted floor. One might just need a floor mount with hospital bed size castors.
