Do they say how many hours it has on it?
That's a tough call....IMO it's way too risky buying a used plasma without seeing it first. Someone's idea of "pristine" could be completely different than yours. At least with the new F5300 you'll have the stock 1yr warranty.
I've never had Amazon refuse a refund request on items purchased directly from them (meaning NOT one of the merchants using the site). So I'm pretty sure they would take care of you if you had a problem. Having said that I HAVE returned Amazon Warehouse Deals in the past they seemed a bit more beat up than their description implied.
