I'm hoping that I got the right forum for this. I'm thinking of finally getting rid of my Sony T.V. and upgrading to a Samsung Plasma. When I got my CRT TV 10 about 8 years ago it seemed like a good idea; plasma and LCD were still a little iffy and VERY expensive and everyone was saying that CRT still gave the best picture (blacks were solid, viewing angle, etc.).
Nowadays, even with some problems (short lifespan, still some viewing angle problems, barely perceptible picture problems, etc.) a 50" plus plasma or LED beats a 32" CRT easily. Most people are willing to make a "sacrifice" to have such a huge television in their home. That, and the 4:3 of a traditional T.V. often cuts the sides of most movies and videogames.
I was thinking about trying to sell my current T.V. on Craigslist and was wondering what a reasonable price would be.
It's a Sony KV32HS510 (I would post a link to Amazon, but this is my first post)
I purchase the custom Sony stand along with an extra deck or horizontal panel for another component (video game console, Blu-ray player, cable box, etc.).
I was hoping to list it for $400 and probably negotiate down, but I think from checking online this might be ridiculously high. It's like trying to sell an old laptop on Ebay; it's really shocking how they go down in price over the years. It's hard to imagine I paid about $1200 when I purchased it through Circuit City (RIP).
I think the only thing going for my T.V. is that it's one of the last CRTs and hence has HDTV (1080i not 1080p though). I'm hoping there are some videophiles out there who really value it.
