Went into argos in lincoln (Note: this is an argos extra store) and i noticed that they were selling off most of there display TVs. They were being sold at there current sale price with 20% off. They all came with a years manufactures warrenty and with all the bits and pieces with them. They are being sold as sold as seen but were all in brilliant condition. I got the Toshiba 32AV504 32in HD Ready Digital LCD TV for £297.50. They still had quite a few different tvs in a range of sizes left in the lincoln store.

Just thought i would post incase any of you find this useful. I had a quick search and couldnt find it already posted anywere, so sorry if it has been.

Personally I would prefer to pay full price and have a brand new TV which has never been turned on. Do you really want to buy a tv which has been abused by customers.

I'm intrigued now! How do you abuse a TV?

Leaving a Plasma on Dynamic settings with static logo's displayed from store opening to closing day in day out.

I'd never buy an ex demo plasma.

They were mostly LCD tvs on display.. and they do not have a static logo displayed on them all day. Its always a moving picture which is constantly changing.

The backlight used in an LCD does have a limited lifespan though. Usually 60,000 to 100,000 dependant on brand.

Shop CRT display i didnt have a problem with. LCDs backlight can be a concern and plasma screen burn.

Giving a minimum of 6-7 years worth of constant 24-hours daily usage.. nowadays, a large amount of people change TV's as frequent or more frequent then that (admittedly, some don't, but I did say large amount, not all), and so it wouldn't be too much of a problem with the ex-display LCD TV's, in lieu of any possible heavy cosmetic damage, anyway :thumbsup:

Plasma's I wouldn't be as sure about, personally. minds.

Do not buy an exdemo PLASMA ever. unless its like 50-60% below retail.

In terms of LCD, should be ok. An easy thing to do (well - at least on name brands like panasonic) is to look thru the menu for the stats option - typically you can see how many hours the tv has been turned on in the service menu, and othering interests self diagnostics.

In terms of usages - panasonic state a 11 -> 30 year lifetime on their plasma panels. I suspect any name brand will offer good lifetime beyond the few months they may have been on the store/shelf on display.

Just buy one, its pointless mentioning screenburn, how many hours its been on for etc, tv's these days both plasma and lcd will last for at least 5 years if switched on for 24/365, if you consider that the OP paid £297.50 for a 32" Toshiba lcd tv which has a years warranty, thats £24.79 a month, £5.72 a week, even if it breaks at the end of the years warranty which I seriously doubt its cost you next to nothing just bin it and buy a new one which in a years time will probably only cost you tupence! :whistling:
