Half is a little crazy. If he has all the paperwork, and the unit is in excellent condition with no dead or stuck pixels, then that is actually in some ways better than buying sight unseen. You never know what you might get from an unopened box.
I sold my 37px50u for $400 less than retail. Both I and the buyer thought that was fair. I was buying a 42phd8uk and wanted to cover most of that cost.
Really he should just sell it for the same price that he is buying the 42" for. That way he gets what he wants and you get a decent deal on something you want.
