Here it is

The set works fine but it's several years old, what would be a fair asking price for this 170 pound behemoth.

About $50.

Thanks TLK, 50 sounds about right for a boat anchor...

I know this a follow-up to couple month old thread, but I was wondering if the original poster found a buyer for the TV, and if so, at what price?

I'm asking because I have one to get rid of, as well.

CRTs are hard to sell due to the weight, most prefer a LCD,LED or Plasma. I have seen a fixed price for all large tube TVs at the Thrift store for 89 dollars.

Maybe hang on to it
HD CRTs are uncommon, still the best pic for non HD signals such as older game consoles, Laser Players and VHS tape. Then there are all the TV stations piped in thru cable or satellite that is only in 480i. A clear pic on a CRT, fuzzy edges between colors on a LCD.

You are right about the weight - it does make it a little more of a challenge to sell. I'm selling it for my folks, and they kept the stand, so whomever wants it will need to have something sturdy on which to place it. This particular model, KV-32FV16, weighs 176 lbs.

It probably would be good for kids' video games/as a second "basement" TV, but I'm not thrilled about putting something so hard to move in my home. I'd rather give my folks the cash from selling it or just donate it.

After posting to this thread, I did a search for kv-32 "completed listings" on Ebay. I was shocked to see a couple of these tVs had sold for $85 to $90, although a few sold for under $20, too.

I have the 27" version of this model that I need to get rid of. Still works great, but I really have no use for it anymore.

Are these even more worthless than they were back when the original question was asked?

They are fine sets but they have only a niche market currently. Console video gamers and television/video history collectors. So since that market is so small, they appear to have no value. But I come across people online all the time who can't find a set like this in their area.

The weight is a big deal sure. I know I won't ever be moving mine, and if it needs repair then that repair will be done right there in the living room.

Let me put it this way, I tried to donate one (a nice CRT) and they would not accept it.

Ha! Guess I'll put it on Craigslist and take whatever I can get.

Some places do not take them, but some places do. Many companies had started up taking them in for recycling, but they ended up having too much and it got too expensive. There was an article recently about recycling companies going out of business and leaving behind warehouses of TVs. It is sad really because most of the TVs that people throw out or send for recycling (perhaps it can be true of any electronics) are still working fine or can be fixed easily.

After having got the 32" Trinitron moving experience done, I have realised that I have neither the room for a set that large nor the ability to decide to relocate it to another room if I wanted. I will only take sets up to 20" now.
