Unless you can get a killer deal on it, I would spend more for something newer.

$80 after negotiation.

A KV-32XBR450 is $280 with stand. I don't need the stand. What's a reasonable price for this one? higher than $150 won't be approved.

Actually, it's a standard 4:3 TV that is capable, thanks to the FD Trinitron and Hi-Scan 1080 feature, of displaying a HD signal (1080i) via component cables. But you need to know that the HD will be LETTERBOXED on the 4:3 screen.

You'll get letterboxed on many movies on the HD channels, regardless if your Tube is 16:9 or 4:3.

The XBR100 Series were killer Tubes and cost a bundle when new, but if I were buying a used Tube right now, I'd move up a few years to at least the 800 Series. Even better would be the 36XBR800/40XBR800 or the last 36" SPF models. If you want a 16:9 Tube, then go for their 34" counterparts in the model years.

I'm gonna sell my 34XBR800 here in Boston, if anyone's interested. I figured I'll ask $300, does that sound about right? Will probably replace it with a 46" Samsung 650, or maybe a 50" Samsung DLP.

6ave had a killer deal on the 37" samsung, but I want a 46" probably, since it is our TV room.

I found one of these for sale locally.

What should I look out for, defect wise, before I purchase? Certain picture things to look for? Certain MFR date? The set is ISF calibrated, which is a big plus.

Thanks!

If you don't like the smell of smoke, ask if the TV has always been kept in a smoke-free environment. That's something that you might not notice until after you buy it.

Aside from the ISF calibration, ask if the TV has ever been serviced.

Ask if the seller is the original owner.

If the TV is still hooked up, you might want to just check out the image with all the available inputs. For example, if a DVD player is hooked up, you might want to bring a DVD that you're familiar with.

Ask if everything works properly. In my experience, some sellers will not advertise problems but they will often respond honestly if you ask that question.

Good luck!

I think you can get better than that. My 34XBR800 just sold for $300 w/ no stand, and it had 2 minor issues - little gray smudge in one corner and the image dropped 1/2" on the left side. Buyer didn't care though.

The catch is you need to pick it up NW of Chicago.

Perfect picture other then the typical tiny green blob lower left by the speaker.

$400 is the buy it now.
Search on KV-40.

You do know that's one of the absolute best consumer displays ever built right?

A shame you don't live near me.

"Buy It Now" feature is off, and the bidding is up to $255 w/4 bidders. Great thing is that the Sony Stand is included. How do you know if the TV has the "greenies"??

I've got my 36XBR800 up on CL for $250 and have had some interest but no takers yet. It's in perfect shape and is a late 2002 vintage. I have the original book and remote.

Priced too high? Maybe it's just the bad weather is keeping people away?

What do you think?

I think that's an excellent price & value if as you say it is in perfect shape. Does it come w/the Sony Stand? That's important and if so then you should state so.

PS: I just read your ad on CL. Great pics, but I would alter your blurb a bit. I would omit the parts about being heavy, etc. as it puts a negative taint to the ad, but rather you should elaborate on its HDTV qualities, pure natural colors, superb black levels that are only now being equaled by the $5000 Pioneer Elites. Many people think "Tube CRT", and think the TV's going dark in Feb 2009 when the US officially switches to digital broadcasting. Nothing is further from the truth, but there's a lot of urban myths flying around. In fact, I'd bump it up to $350 or $375, and then deal a little w/a potential buyer should the need arise.

I also think the time of year is not necessarily helping you. I have been selling low $ (less than $100) stuff on Ebay to clear out some stuff around my house. It was selling pretty briskly until the last week or so when folks buying seemed to dry up. Also these sets are very heavy beasts and that limits their attraction. I specifcally went with a 30" Sony 16:9 set over the 34" because I knew my wife and I could JUST handle it. If you do have the stand that is a big selling point to some. I had to troll ebay and got lucky and found a Sony stand at a reasonable price for my 30HS420.

Speaking of Ebay you might want to try to sell it there as local pickup only if CL fails. I have listed antique furinture I was clearing out on CL and got nary a nibble. I then put it up on Ebay and every item sold for my asking price as local pickup only.

I have a 34XBR960 I have to reluctantly get rid of because of a move.
Perfect working order, picture is perfect. No smudge issues or burn-in whatsoever. I have taken care of this set since I was one of the first to get my hands on it when it came out in July 2004. There is only slight overscan, which can likely be fixed by accessing the service menu, which I have not tinkered with. Power conditioned and surge protected of course. Cosmetic condition is perfect, no dings, dents or scratches. I am in the Los Angeles area, will help you load. 500 obo. pm if interested

The 960 has the HDTV system Tuner with CableCard. The 910 has a good regular TV tuner in it, requires input from external tuner box for HDTV reception.

The 960 also has firewire, and you can use the Mits DVHS deck with it, to record the SD/HD program you're tuned into.
