Just popped to the Whitechapel branch and they were selling this for £461. It is an "ex display" but am tempted to buy it. They guy said it was nationwide.

Surely, nothing wrong with buying an ex display, right?

Discontinued model

Snap it up I say - I bought my TV ex-display from PC World, great saving!

1. but it's a discontinued model.

2. Is it 100hz?

Should i buy it even if its an ex display and a discontinued model?

Will I have the warranty?

I purchased this TV like 6 months ago for £599 with a 5 year warrenty at J Lewis, so this is not a good price.

You should never buy an ex display model TFT ever, its been on like 18 hours a day with the backlight at maximum. Overtime the backlights wear down. Most household will have their backlight at 50% or less, but the stores turn them up to maximum.

No really a good deal for second hand tv basically.

it's not really second hand in the true sense of the word, is it? I mean ig I buya brand new one, from the moment i leave fom the sotre, it becomes second hand anyway.

Do ex displays affect the warranty or statutory rights (soga)?

a bit risky buying ex display tvs i would imagine seeing as they are turned on all the time on display

"its been on like 18 hours a day with the backlight at maximum. Overtime the backlights wear down."

that's the main problem with ex-displays, wouldn't recommend purchasing 2nd hand or ex-display items for a high value purchase.

LOL, wear & tear of ex-display or 2nd hand item needs to be taken into consideration? :roll:

personally would be willing to pay £100 more for a new one with 5yrs warranty over ex-display.
#12
Surely if the figures are to be believed and the LCDs last around 60,000 hours of viewing, a tv thats a few months old, wouldnt make much dent in its lifespan?

Do not worry about your problems. With mathematics, I assure you mine are greater! :thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking:

They may have no warranty from the manufacturer, but the Sale of Goods Act applies exactly as it would on a new model.

If they sell something to you at a discount whilst mentioning a specific fault at the time of purchase then that's fine. Being "ex-display" is not a specific fault so you can legally expect it to function as well as a pristine product.
#15
you could buy a second buy taking a gamble on it developing a manufacturing fault (as many tvs do) and getting a new and better model for free as a replacement.

Longshot gamble though!

Does "ex display", mean just 1 left? :thinking:

Maybe you have a learning difficulty and can only read numbers, I dunno .... but if you read on you could see the words "[COLOR="Red"]5 YEAR Warrenty[/COLOR]".

I thought the word "display" is quite self explanatory, ex-display = used to be displayed on the shop floor/shelf, highly likely would have been turned on for many hours everyday, open to touching, poking etc etc from customers/lookers.
