My local Tweeter has a floor model Pioneer Elite PRO-620HD
for $2799. They include a 5 year extended warrentee at this price. It is in great shape, Picture looks awesome.

The saleman told me that it has seen almost all WS,very little 4x3 images. It has manual and remote.

List for this was around $6000, so Im kinda fired up about this TV. What are people's opinions about buying a floor model RPTV?

TIA
Earle

The SD-582-HD5 is not an Elite, is well removed by date from being just recently discontinued,and, is the same price at COSTCO out here in the West new in a box.

$1,995.00, with the option of inspecting it in the store before acceptance for burn-in, with a 5 year warranty is more like a deal.
The salesperson is looking to get a big spiff on this (ask Mfusick about those ;)).

Likely, you'll see something in 90 days that would have been a much better price, possibly better image, for the same of less money. You need more of a bargain to make this enticing.

Just my .02!

Mike,

I posted the wrong model. See above for new model. This is a Elite 58" RPTV.

Sorry for the mix up

I would check the contrast settings on the unit first. See if they are high, if they are still set high, they probably have been since the sets been on demo. In which case you may start having some burn in issues. Also, the 20 series Elites had a problem with the S-video and composite inputs. Some of the sets exhibited a red "blotchiness" when using those inputs. The blotchiness is more noticeable on the s-video than the other inputs. Pioneer fixed the issue at some point during the 20 series run, but there is no way of knowing which have it and which don't by serial number of anything. I would strongly suggest that you test out the set thouroughly using multiple inputs and multiple sources. You can find more info on the blotchiness is you search this forum and over on the home theater spot Pioneer forum.

IMO, run away from this set.

Consider a new non elite Pioneer from Costco for about the same money.
