Default Transporting a used television.

I've heard transporting an un-boxed flat panel of considerable size (60") is advisable only in the upright position, not lain down flat, as the excessive flex forces can cause the glass to crack.

This true?

Yes, it's a genuine risk.

Is it severe? Would extensive padding & cautious driving mitigate the risk?

Laying the display on its back?

Or is it really not worth the danger...

You get to determine the "worth" of the risk. Good luck!

Edit button doesn't work...

What about a securely boxed example?

Oh the irony. I decided to buy a TX55-VT30 instead as it comes with shipping.

Shipping from a bunch of mouthbreaking assclowns who dumped the box in the truck like a sack of potatoes, then dumped more stuff on top of it.

Result: shattered screen.

I bet It wouldn't have happened if I was transporting it in my car.
