I purchased a used Maxent 42" Plasma off of eBay.
It came from a company called Auction Drop and they
have a 99.6 % rating so their stuff normally works.
OK, you bought a used plasma TV from a 3rd party, through an eBay
If someone asked me to come up with the most risky procurement channel
for a plasma TV, only Guido & Vinny's back alley operation would rate
The description said everything worked fine,
Need I say the words?
The description said "looks soft up close". There was absolutely nothing wrong with the plasma display. Unfortunately UPS broke the front glass and smashed two corners in shipping so I had to let them take it back and took the insurance.
Recently I bought a 50" Pioneer Elite Pro-1000HD 50" for $260 that had a bad power supply. Pioneer had lost a class action suite and settled for fixing all power supplies free labor and parts till the end of 2007. They came to my place and fixed the unit at no cost the day after I called and gave them the serial number. It is a very nice plasma.
