    when u r considering an open box/floor model for a buy, what should you look for?

    there was a 36" hdtv JVC flat screen at a store last weekend for $1298, if it is there this weekend, i may pick it up, i know alot of people dont like jvc, but i have never had a prob with any of there home theatre projucts.

    The problem is with how open-box items have been used (on for at least twelve hours a day each day of the week, contrast cranked to the maximum, etc.). An open-box model is not a good bet.

    Greetings

    If the price is right, and I cannot see anything wrong with the unit on the floor ... I normally would not hesitate too much. See if you can put up a 80% white field to look for crt burn in ... Just make sure you get the extended warranty.

    RPTV is another issue ... but direct view ...

    Regards
