I've still got a 35" Mitsubishi CRT in the basement that we use occasionally. When I bought it used from an old boss of mine in the mid-90's it was one of the more expensive TV's you could buy at the time, around $3,000 new (I paid $1,500 w/two years of use). The picture (display) still works great, but its built-in tuner no longer works! So it's perfectly OK with a VCR or cable box connected, or as a display when used with a DVD player.
Anyway, I'm now looking to replace it with a flat screen. What's holding me back is how do I move it? According to the owners manual it weighs 308 lbs. which is way too much for me to move, even with my wife's help, up two sets of stairs.
For anyone who might be interested in taking if off my hands for free - with the help of a couple of your strong friends - you can send me a PM and I'll be happy to make arrangements for you to take it away! Or if anyone has any other ideas on how I should replace it, I'm all ears.
