Almost....

Robert and his fellow cult follower are making sure I go nuts but not yet.
BuyDig.com - Sony KDL-70R550A 70-Inch 1080P 120Hz Wifi Smart 3D LED (Allow 1-2 days processing)
70" TV that is only $2200 is a killer deal.
I do spend less and less time in my house these days but when I do I want that movie theater experience and perhaps move 42" to my bedroom....

Just thinking and doing researches....
Also I guess I would have to get an approval from my wife on this....
Toys over $500 is a must discussion items....
Its not like I can hide 70" tv on back patio and bringing in when my wife sleeps and not notice...

Well, if you like that one at $2199....you will probably love this one at $1,599:

VIZIO E-Series 70

Seriously, tomorrow I will ask my shipper about door to door costs for that size.

Now we are talking...
$1599 for a 70" TV....
I don't like 3D anyways.
If my wife doesn't like this, I guess I won't like her next favorite brand hand bag....

And you call yourself "Koreano"??????
What Koreano wouldn't buy a "Lois Vitton" knock off, instead of a "REAL" one????
I am always afraid it won't work when it gets here, or how much it will cost, if you can find anywhere, to get it repaired????
You are just having a "Man Cave" flight of fancy.
Two "Grandes", and a big fat cigar, should help!

The duty is charged based upon the size of the TV, not on the price of the TV. You would have to call Montero, Awilda, EncargoPaq, etc and get quotes.

This idea got shot down like a moon. Now that my boys are hooked on YouTube videos, and her consistently fighting over 5 episodes of Disney Playhouse, made her put her foot down. Bad for education she said, having too many TV and electronic things are bad for kid. Although we are eyeing on Android phone and tablet for me or my wife, she said this isn't a good idea. I'll see where it goes when we talk face to face...

The Koreana I live with would never allowed to be scene with fake LV. I took her to Chinatown in NYC once and no one will tell the difference but didn't believe me. Maybe next time I visit home I should go to Chinatown and should get a surprise gift of LV (Fake).

Now that you mentioned it. I will keep thinking about this over cigar brought from a guy who works at Scandinavia...

So the guy could be asking the boat load of money on this? Perhaps I should wait for PC2 to see what are the actual fees involve beyond $1599...

When a door to door shipper gives you a quote, that is the price you pay. Customs does ask for high duty for TVs, but that is just the way it is here in the DR.

EncaeoPaq said the duty is charged n the total price paid for the TV. Bill should be clouded in the box or you can bring it over

This is gospel.
Quit p*ssing around

Call a mudanza - get a price and ship

Nothing simpler....

I use EncargoPaq for small items, I would use a mudanza for TVs. They have a deal where the TV is charged by the size. I have been told that by mudanzas a number of times.

Huge screens are easily had these days via projection. My 3d Sharp in my basement, is as clear as my 60" plasma. Yes, they are both 1080 p, difference being the size! Wow! When you view a late issue movie, via hdmi and bluray, it is in incredible!
Even the fibre optic bell feed looks great at 720p.
Big changes.

Just make sure you have a very well backed up power system feeding such a projector. If you should happen to lose power and the cooling fan does not get the chance to cool down the bulb, there is a good chance it the bulb will fail and they are expensive.

If you love your wife, buy her an iPad Mini. I guarantee she will warm to the idea of a 70" TV very quickly ;)
She had been happy with HTC tablet we got two years ago but we definitely need an upgrade. We are not upgrading it because it there's new version 4 out there and 3 just sucks. With so many new contents out there now require more hardware power, we feel need to get dual or quad core and 2GB memory. And perhaps turn the OLD HTC into my son's plaything later on. You gotta teach them early that overpriced doesn't mean better and getting trapped in a closed OS isn't good thing... :cool:

Dominicans often bring a lot of items in their suit cases.
Soooooooooooooooooooooo, be like a Dominican, fly to "Nueba Yol", go to "China Town", buy the biggest "F83King" suitcase you can find, and bring it back with you on the plane!
I have seen them with suitcases big enough to pack an upright piano, or a small car.
I SWEAR"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
