Questions on repaired Panasonic GT50
Sorry if this ends up being a double post, just delete it in that case.
Being an owner of a Panasonic 42'' G25 since 2010 (42'' because prices were ridiculous in Canada in 2010.. they still are actually), I can't find a good reason to spend more than 2000$ on an OLED at this time but I'd like to at least upgrade in size. Even more so considering my 2010 Panny is still flawless to my eyes.
I've had opportunities to get my hands on 9G Kuros but since they stop at 50'' I'd rather get a bit lesser dark levels and get 5'' bigger.
I could get my hands on a 55'' GT50 for about 300 CAD$ (225 $USD) at a small local TV repair shop.
The set has had its mainboard replaced.
Questions are :
- Is it an indication that the TV wasn't handled with care while moving or had any accident and that I should be worried about this repair?
- Given the GT50 has two THX modes with decent pre-calibrations, would a mainboard replacement affect overall PQ and/or those calibrations? The only calibration I might do is running WOW blu-ray or something like that, so nothing professional.
- What would you do? Is it worth the upgrade for the price in your opinion?
