    I'm looking to sell my Toshiba TW40H80 television. It's the Non-HD version of the TW40X81, 40H80 etc.

    I'm just not sure what to ask for it. It's in perfect condition, has been ISF'd, Duvetyne fabric installed (as illustrated on my website) and has a goregous picture.

    What do you folks think is a fair price for this set?

    Thanks.

    Well, brand new it can be had for $1500 (some overstocks and remnants are available locally). So I would say it's worth about 25% less than that since it's in great shape and it's been pre-calibrated (may have to be recalibrated if it's moved).

    I'd say it's worth about $1150-$1200.

    David:
    Used equipment usually goes about 30-50% off what you paid, although selling things on E-Bay produces astonishing results, sometimes up to 90% of retail value![​IMG]
    But for a set like yours, a local sale maybe the best way to go.
