Panasonic th-42pz80u

I picked up a Panasonic Viera th-43pz80u a week back for 50$USD. Was it a good or bad deal? The TV is 1080p and it has a really nice image but I'm new to plasma tv's so what do I know lol.

I had the 46" version of that model from 2008.

I gave it to my brother a few years ago when I upgraded to a larger screen.
Its still working fine at his place even today!

That was my first flatscreen HDTV, bought it through NewEgg on a Black Friday sale in either 2007 or 2008. A long time ago. Solid set for what it is. Worth $50 and as a bonus it will also double as a space heater.

I have a TH-42PX50u 2005 model. It has 49,000 hours of use on it and just recently started to go. I'm in the process of fixing it but after 15 years of heavy use (two kids etc) it's the best TV I've ever had. Even though I have a brand new 4K Sony A8G, which is stunning, I still miss the picture quality of my old 1080i plasma.
$50 is a great deal. I was looking for a used plasma when mine started to go but all I could find in local pickup and there are none close to where I live for sale at this time.

Sony 2019 Sony XBR-55A8G
Panasonic TH-42PX50U - 49,203 hours! DIED :-( then resurrected by me on 1/16/2020!!!!!

Various "cheap" TV's in kids room and video game room.
