Sounds like you know him personally? 147 hours is basically new but you need to confirm that yourself.


People keep bringing up OLED but what if one doesn't want to buy an OLED. Even if they have the money. New isn't always better or the best choice. And no I'm not talking about OLED issues............In general.

Good point about the OLED recommendations (which are greatly appreciated) but I was overwhelmed when we decide to narrow down to a plasma as our next tv. We have a panasonic projector in our HT and we love that but were looking for a nice big tv.
We love movies and plasmas always seem to be recommended for "pure" image recreation.
We have zero interest in smart tv features.
I understand that $2000 is considered too high, but from the feedback I guess that the pro-151 is still a great plasma even in 2016.

Very good point about the OLED. I own a ZT60 and have no plans of upgrading to OLED for a while. I still like my plasma technology better than OLED. But I just don't think that $2,000 is a fair offer for an 8 year old TV. Especially since some of the newer TV's are going for between $2,000 - $3,000.

Some of the 2015 oleds are going for a lot cheaper than that. 1080p 55 inch 9100 is $1200, 4K 55 inch 9600/9500 have been $1479, 65 inch 4K 9600 has been $2500 or less.

Whether you think oleds are better is sorta irrelevant (they are at least comparable-I have the 9100 and while there are trade offs, I'm not going back)...

It's about risk. An 8 year old tv, no matter how well built, is going to carry some inherent risk which is why I wouldn't pay comparable dollars for it

I didn't mean $2000 was a good deal. I don't think i would pay that much. You can find ones that are cheaper. But at that low hours and calibrated i don't know.

If mine ever has any problems i wouldn't mind buying parts and fixing over buying a new TV. So there's that and that's just me.

I hear ya on that! I would buy replacement parts to fix my ZT60 too. No sense on buying a new TV when for a couple hundred dollars most of the time you can fix it. :-) New Boards most of the time will fix the TV.
