Buying a used LG 50PG6010 Plasma Screen - Need advice!

Found 20th Apr 2010
Hello,

A friend I know is selling his used LG 50" Plasma Screen TV (Model No: 50PG6010) and the issue with is there are few visible cracks on external glass (not on plasma screen). I tested with a PS3 Game and a Blu-Ray movie, the quality looks amazing. The crack is visible but doesn't annoy viewing experience.

I'd like to get couple of questions answered and some advice too:

1) What would be the best price that I can quote? Considering its a 1+ year old and having some cracks on external screen.

2) Is the external screen replaceable? If so how much would they normally cost?

Would you recommend me to buy it off for a cheap price and fix the external screen myself or I'd be better off buying a new one? Look forward to getting bit of support and suggestion here.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there, from what i can tell, it isn;t that good of a tv, perhaps that was a different story early 2008 when it came out, it is only 720p, and as you say it is cracked, i would maybe offer 200-250 quid, you can buy one here for 529...( maybe cheaper other places, it was just a quick google )

Maybe not worth trying to replace anything, it usually ends up costing more than it's worth

Thanks for that! The offer I have is for £300! I thought this was a decent offer for a 50" but looking at the RRP.. I don't think its worth taking a punt. Any idea where I can get a replacement for external glass for the 50" plasma tv? If it works cheaper I might just get it or go for a new one instead! Thanks again for your help. Cheers :thumbsup:

you could always take a punt on this if your quick and lead a charmed life ( ignore expired bit, deal still active at time of posting)
