the condition is far more important than the hours imo. if there's no scratches, visible defects(including ir), or other cosmetic issues, that price seems pretty fair(doesn't mean you can't try for less).


the last I saw the zt60's listed for locally was around 3k for the 65. they were on clearance about 2months ago, and haven't been available for awhile now. the normal selling price here was just under 5k, so that's a heavy discount for us.


now if the condition is poor. if there's IR, or scratches on the screen. then it's a decision of whether or not it's even worth buying. if the IR looks like it could be removed that's one thing, but I wouldn't bet 2900 bux on it.

Cool he said he could probably talk his manager into maybe getting it cheaper. I'm going there Wednesday.

Here in Canada the display model was selling for over $4500 2 weeks ago. That's a good deal for the last great plasma from Panasonic.

I'm also in Canada. visions(not sure if they have stores in BC, it's a smaller chain) is the one that had them on for about 2k off retail, right up until they sold out completely. if I'm not mistaken 4500 was about the highest the 65" ever sold for. I'm going off memory here but I think I was quoted about 3000 for the 60" way back when they were released. it was 2800 for a 64" f8500, 3200 for a 65" vt60, and I THINK 3700 for the 65" zt60. but I didn't write that one down as I wouldn't have had to go for the 60" due to price anyway.


anyway, 2900 is still good for one in good condition. it's not like you'll be able to find another easily
