50gt30 return -how much should i pay?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi guys,

i found an open box return - the panasonic 50gt30 at a local tv shop. inside one of the HDMI ports doesnt work, and the remote is missing. they are asking $750 w full 1 yr warranty and some logitech universal remote thrown in. Im gonna try to negotiate this price. the reviews seem excellent for this tv, and i saw the panel was made in october 2011 if that means anything. has anyone heard bad things about this timeline of the model? does anyone have one? What do you think its worth? i know they were $1900 when they first came out, yes?

any insight on how to negotiate would be great.....i assume the thx on this tv helps for easier calibration? thamks..........BTW i was thinking $500.

Presume that you have been able to examine the set - for obvious external damage (scratches, dents...), some of which may not bother you, but could indicate Rough Usage - and that they have also demonstrated that the panel does, indeed, WORK - ??

Would ensure that the other input options work; look of signs of IR / Burn-in, as well as other picture flaws: Green Blobs? Green Tint? Pink Tint? Numerous stuck pixels?

It was returned for SOME reason. If you are lucky, it was simply for the HDMI port...

I would just wait until you can afford something from this year. Yes, they are that much better than last year's.
