To me, it’s not that it weighs too much, it’s the awkwardness of the weight with the autoformers making it unbalanced. It’s like some of the old big tube TV’s where all the weight was in the front due to the glass. I had a Mitsubishi 40” tube tv back in the early 90’s which was huge in the day. Moving that by myself was impossible, but then again, it weighed over 290 lbs with the weight all at the front. My roommate at the time and I carried that TV up to our house which was 100 stair steps to the front door from the street. What a pain.

Seriously. My MC302 is "only" 98 pounds and that thing is impossible for me to move on my own especially since unlike the MC462 it doesn't have any handles to hold on to.
