    Whats a good price to ask for my Mits 55907(1.5 years old) that has been calibrated by Chuck Williams?

    I am moving to FP, and if I dont sell the mits, I will be using this as my bedroom TV.

    Thanks,
    Fred

    ... that'd make a GREAT bedroom TV [​IMG] I'd consider doing that first and foremost.

    That is a tough question. I sold my Mits 55805, with 5 yr warranty (2 plus yrs remaining) and calibration for $1,500 last year. I found most local folks in Kansas City didn't know anything about HD and what the benefits (calibration) of what I was selling. What did make the sale was the warranty. Still having protection against a breakdown offered them security (plus, the Phillips warranty allows them to extend it beyond the warranty period for a fee). The best advice is to compare what a new Mits would cost and make it a sweet deal for the local consumer.

    Good Luck

    Greetings

    Probably between 50% and 75% of what you paid. The calibration is nice and the person buying it would thank you, but that and $0.75 would buy you a cup of coffee. [​IMG]
