I just saw a display plasma TV, 50S65 at my local Costco and they want $450. This TV has manufactured date June 2013. Is it worth it to buy the display model as supposed a new one at Sears ($699)? They had it on the whole time and the picture look very lousy in SD (probably due to not being calibrated). Any thoughts?

It does not look very good in SD ever. In HD it is beautiful. I bought one and I do not watch any SD but HD is very good. Recommend it if you are planning on HD use.

Costco and Sams are two of the best places to buy floor models because it's never sitting on one channel all the time to get ir or burn in, (at least around here) but you still need to check it and check the hrs.

 

From my experience Costco will negotiate if you can get the store manager to come talk to you, while Sams has to stick to whatever the home office says the price should be.

 

Read this post to see how I worked the Costco manager.

BTW, plasmas always look lousy in a place like Costco when sitting next to an led in that lighting. Remember, you have like 2 or 3 months to bring it back for a full refund, no questions asked. You also get a 2 year warranty from Costco for no extra charge.

thanks for the tips. I was be able to negotiate it down to $425 and the total hours is only 575 hours.
