Damn! That's an excellent deal.

I may take a look at a 60 inch at my local Best Buy, must be the floor model, they are asking $1750, will see if I can get them to take off another 10% like they did on my Pioneer Elite receiver. Is this TV really that good? I was about to buy a 65 inch Samsung 7100

How did you find it, did you stumble across it or call BB's until you found one?

I have a 60" on hold for $1999....no stand, no manual, no remote....

I am going to see it sunday and decide if I will purchase...want to check the hours. Is there a certain threshold I should not cross when it comes to total hours? Oh and I will check the build date.

You sure you're ok with that?

Still has the full warranty. He could also purchase one of the many extended warranty options out there. Personally, I wouldn't buy it without additional coverage. Still a great price though.

 

People often look at getting a warranty as the get-out-of-jail-free card for buying a used TV.  It is not.

 

Let's look at my 4 hours a day viewing example:

 

  • With a new set, and a 4 year whopping good warranty, at the end of it you have 4 year old set.
  • With that particular set, and that same warranty, at the end of it you have a 9 1/2 year old set!!!!!!!

 

Also, keep in mind, that it's difficult to get a warranty these days that allows endless repairs, or even repairs beyond the value.

 

At the end of your warranty you might just end up with a TV that croaks soon.  Most people would find that unacceptable.  That "good price" isn't magic for that particular TV....you're trading away a awful lot for it.

For anyone looking to purchase a used Elite from someone else, be careful the manufacturers warranty doesn't transfer.

Dear Customer

The 1 year manufacturer's warranty only applies to the original purchaser. If you are purchasing an Elite from someone else, the warranty does not transfer with the TV.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great day!

However, if the original owner purchased an extended warranty from Elite, the extended warranty is transferable.
So the second owner will be without warranty only till the extended Elite warranty kicks in.

Have a great day!

I would have to respectfully disagree with that...for a few of reasons

1. Life expectancy of the TV...at 100K hours( life expectancy) at 5 hours a day of use you are looking at a few decades of useful operation

2. Price that you paid is probably about a third of what someone paid 2 years ago....so if you paid say $1600-1700 and they paid $4500 for the same TV that makes a HUGE difference

3. There will most certainly be something else out there better than this in less than 5 years...so will you really be looking at keeping this TV for a decade?

4. The way most electronics operate...the highest incidence of needed repair is in the first year...so the fact that it has made it this far( assuming everything is all good currently), its very likely even the used one will perform far longer than you care to keep it

5. As far as repairs beyond the value( of what you actually paid)....I think many will take that chance to save $2500-3000. The truth of the matter is if it fails more than twice Sharp will probably replace it in the first year
If it fails under the extended warranty...depending on parts availability..it may be fixed or they just issue you credit for the amount you originally paid for the TV
Not a bad deal to save that amount of money and making the assumption that LED TV's ( even the least expensive ones) are pretty reliable with failure typically coming in the first year, if ever

I'll have to respectfully stop you right there for clarification.  Are you truly expecting a flat panel (I don't care the technology) to last a few decades (30+ years)?

actually...what is more realistic is how long would you even want to keep it before its obsolete?

hence my reason for saying it really doesn't matter if the Tv has 2 years of use on it and disagreeing with your "get out of jail free" comments...if you paid 40-50%( or more) less for it in the first place

in 5-7 years...the way technology is evolving..it will be a dinosaur anyway

do you truly not think there will be something far better than this TV( for less $$) in 5 -7 years?

so....lets say it lasted 15 years and died vs 17 years of a new unit ...and you saved $2500 on the initial purchase of the TV

The way technology is evolving you should be able to buy a better TV in every way( in 5-7 years) for less than the $2500 you saved....wink.gif

if the 100K hour Tv ratings that manufacturers give their units if off by lets say 50%
50,000 hours is a LONG life that I dont think many will take advantage of...ESPECIALLY at the high end of TV buying where I think people buy more often anyway when technology changes

Doesn't even look like a 60 to me.

 

Look at the width of the remote.  Divide that into the diagonal of the TV.  You now have a multiple you can use to quickly calculate.  You might discover that the remote needs to be 3 1/2" wide if the TV is a certain size.

I know, I asked the seller and he says that it is a 70 , I have the 70, and when I snap a pic of it, it looks way bigger. Maybe its a wierd camera angle or something?

It does seem like a wide angle shot or something similar.  The perspective is extreme.....The front of the table is much bigger than the back.

 

So perhaps that's why.

 

Dunno.  I would not trust buying this without looking at it in person anyway.  (sorry I cannot help more).
