It's actually not such a bad TV. I liked it, had it in my game room for a few weeks til the Wii remote slipped out of my idiot boyfriend's hands and shattered the inside LCD screen. So now I have a broken TV which I have no idea what to do with or how to get rid of since the screen is broken I know no one will want it, even for parts.
So I'm pretty happy this is only $130 bucks now because I can replace it new instead of dealing with Craigslist looking for a deal (haven't found anything this size that cheap except the Cowboom deal I missed). I paid $160 3 weeks ago I believe. I don't know a whole lot about LCD TVs and I'm not really picky as long as the sound and video work so I liked it
CCFL (non-LED) backlit LCD TVs and monitors tend to have wider bezels and are thicker in order to hold the bulky fluorescent tubes within the units. On the plus side, manufacturer will often put in larger and better sounding speakers than those horrible tinny ones you'll generally find in slimmer LED-lit TVs.
I own/have owned 3+ TVs of each type and this seems to be the consensus.
Good price for a nice basic TV. I find it hilarious though that a 26" TV thats $130 would have 3 HDMI inputs, while a big 46" TV made for a living room only has two which looks like it's becoming the norm now for many models.
You can swear by your refurbished stuff all you want, but I have first-hand experience, and would NEVER buy anything refurbished.
Why do you think refurbished stuff is so cheap? The manufacturer gets defective products returned and unload them to 3rd party vendors cheap who try to entice you at 20% discount off retail.
