    I just don’t have a place for a spare 50” TV. So I hope to give it a new home. If I can a few dollars from it, that will help buy all the new 4k electronics I want. :)

    How did you sell yours? eBay? Craigslist? Forum listing?

    If Craigslist, be patient. I checked last night before I posted and all the ads for the Pioneers I’d seen a month or so ago had been taken down. One of them was a 60” Elite that the guy was asking maybe $800-1000 for. I was surprised to see that one move.

    BTW, why are you selling it, if it still works? I’ve heard that the displays will practically last forever, it’s the power supplies that typically die. I’m going to snag one for mine on ebay soon so I’ll have one on hand.

    i listed it here on htf but I found a local buyer via eBay. I did local pick up only on the
    Listing to avoid shipping.

    also I researched a bit on what the panel might be worth. Some sites said it could have still had $400-500 in value. In the end I was happy though.
    The buyer really wanted it and I didn’t have space for it either. There was nothing wrong with it but I wanted to go 4k.
    If a friend or family member wanted it I would’ve given it to them.

    I’m upgrading to 4k this year. This is my living room TV, and I’ll be going from a 50” HD to 65” UHD set.

    I’ll have nowhere in the house to move / use the Kuro.

    I’ll sell it if there’s an enthusiast who wants it. Otherwise, wait for the next big e-recycling event and dispose of it.

    wow. This is a lot like me. I had nowhere to put my old
    Plasma either. List it now and see what happens. It may take time but you’ll find a buyer. Plus you’ll have some extra $ for your purchase.
    I went without a large tv for a while too!
    It was thrilling to get a 65” screen for me after not having one for a few weeks.

    mug you are unsure of value and can’t find one listed this site may be helpful:

    I found a range to go on for my Panasonic. I priced it higher but I was still
    Pleased with $300.

    Thanks for the tips. I’m waiting for 2020 sets to be launched, then I can list this while I shop for a new set.

    But I can’t risk going without a living room set for several months. :)
