    Hi All,

    I have had this Toshiba TW-56X81 HDTV ready widescreen 56" set for about 3.5 years. It was used only for viewing DVD's in a dedicated HT room. I think I have spent more time calibrating it than watching it. It was not used as a main TV so it doesn't have much wear. The set has two component inputs which can be used for DVD or HDTV.

    It has been ISF grayscale calibrated. The set has been mechanically and electrically focused, the color decoder adjusted for 480p and 1080i, the inside has been lined with black velvet to improve black levels and reduce internal reflections, 64 point convergence has been adjusted, and scan velocity modulation has been physically disabled.

    The buyer would have to pick up the set because shipping is not an option. I live in Butte, Montana which is in the southwest part of the state. I am asking $300 or best offer for the set. I have the owners manual, service manual, and original remote control. Cosmetically, the set is in very good condition. It puts out a beautiful film like picture. I am selling it to buy a front projection system.


    Please let me know if you are interested or have any questions. My email is [email protected]

    Thanks,

    Thomas

    I'm REALLY suprised you can't get alot more for that locally.

    DOn't you have any family or friends that will buy it from you?? I know that if I lived within 200-300 miles I'd be paying my Bestfriend to drive me and pick it up.

    Deal of the year!!!

    I am sure I could make more locally. I would prefer it to go to a fellow HT nut like myself who would really appreciate the work that has gone into it.

    Man...what a deal.

    I could buy a plane ticket from VA to MA pay to have it shipped back to VA and still have a great deal.

    If you still have it after mid-September...please contact me and I'll see what I can do. I'm in Seattle, so it would be a days drive to you (maybe longer)...but I love road trips....

    The reason I say September is because I'm in Germany until then....

    THOMAS:
    is montana state university close to your place?
    i could ask my friend to go take a look and maybe i can take it.

    i from texas, so drive would not be the solution.
    is it a 4:3? or a widescreen?
    could you post some pictures on the web?

    Um, if he says it's widescreen why would it be 4:3? Sounds like 16:9 to me..

    Chun,
    Yes it is 16:9
    I am located about 1 hour west of Montana St. University.


    All,

    I had a buyer lined up and he was to pick it up tomorrow. Today, I took the screen apart to get some debris removed that was between the screen saver and the lenticular, I accidentily cracked the lenticular screen. The crack is about 1.5" long vertical and is straight located at the very bottom of the screen. It is only somewhat noticable during bright scenes and looks like a scratch. I don't know how much a replacement lenticular screen would be. Does anyone have an idea?. Even if it is say only $150 that would only leave me a profit if sold for $300 of $150. I am going to try to sell it locally so the person could see if they find this scratch bothersome. Thanks to all who responded to this post and those that e-mailed me.

    Thomas

    I guess I should mention that I also have a white DaLite diffusion screen that I have used for the last 2 years. It eliminates the need for the lenticular. It needs to be used in a light controlled enviroment but eliminates hot spots, makes the image much smoother, and does not have the viewing angle limitations of the lenticular. If anyone is interested in this set with diffusion screen, just let me know. Thanks
