I just got my $50 ebay bucks from the electronics promo a few weeks back and that would make this super slick for me. But my wife sort of needs a phone so now I have to decide, tv for me or phone for wife...uggggggh.

LeonardVinson 03-24-2013 10:40 AM

I am so glad everyone underappreciates fluorescent backlighting. Otherwise a 47" IPS panel like this wouldn't get categorically denied by most shoppers just because it's not LED backlit, & it would sell out at a much higher price.

IDK about buydig, but I feel a little better it being through ebay at least than when it was 450 from tigerdirect, direct. Must mean there's a looot of them out there though. Either way great deal OP, thank you.

I mean the 42" version of this is over $100 more than this.

BuyDig is a very reputable company, wouldn't worry about it ;) They have had many prior FP deals and some of the best Nexus 7 deals lately :)

LeonardVinson 03-24-2013 10:51 AM

Yeah, thanks for the vote of confidence about the seller, OP. I know amazon won't price match with ebay involved anyway.

Actualy wish this was the 42", at any amount less- even if the same price as crazy as that sounds. Same principle as ccfl, lucky for others some people underappreciate size too.

CCFL (fluorescent) backlighting is not only outdated technology, it is hazardous to your eyes and the environment. Fluorescent lights emit high levels of UV. Later, when you dispose of the set, the mercury in the CCFL tube ends up in the landfill and leaches into the ground water.

CCFL sets also use more energy than their LED cousins.

In addition, an LED backlit panel will also have a much longer lifespan than one with ccfl backlight.

There are advantages to each, & I am thankful most shoppers of these budget sets generally value those of LED more than CCFL.

DJ3xclusive 03-24-2013 11:55 AM

This beats the prior FP deal :woot:

adaweawe 03-24-2013 12:02 PM

The only thing bad about this is that it's not LED. LED especially for bigger screens can save you a nice chunk of cash due to lower power consumption, but also if you like to move your TV around a lot it's really easy because of the lighter weight. Personally I have a 32 inch TV that I like to move one today from my TV stand on to my PC tower when I sit down to eat. Because when I eat in front of my computer it is more awkward to stare at TV stand because it is so high that I have to angle my neck upward and sometimes I feel neck strain . So good thing the TV is pretty lightweight because I get to move it very quickly from one place to another without having worry too much about injuring myself were accidentally having the TV topple over.

LeonardVinson 03-24-2013 12:08 PM

Yes, they are heavier too.

The more I learn of most shoppers' perceptions & priorities, the more certain I become that these models will be dropping even FURTHER in price before they're gone. Holding off for a 42cs570 to get under $400 instead i think.

Is CCFL more hazardous for your eyes than LED backlighting? I always thought LED caused more eye-strain and CCFL was easier. Of course, any kind of rear-projection lighting is bad, but isn't CCFL the lesser of two evils?

(Agree on the other points however.)

No matter whether it is LED, LCD or CCFL, keep the brightness as low as possible, make the room well lit, and look around towards any non light emitting thing at a distance every 10 mins. I know it's not really possible but it you want to keep your eyes healthy, so be it.

For those looking for an LED at less price. Positive reviews on Amazon. I have no personal experience with this brand though.

if anything, CCFL would cause more eystrain since it "flickers"... earlier LEDs had white balance issues which would make the color less accurate but not cause eye strain

Easy. Your eBay bucks, your TV. You wife can go get a job and get her own phone if she needs one so bad. If she can't buy it for herself, she doesn't need it.

budkilmer21 03-24-2013 02:47 PM

great deal. wish it was led though. still holding out.

For those needing a LED TV, there is a 47 inch LG from microcenter for 10 dollars less, but its a in store only special.

http://www.microcenter.com/produc...t_LCD_HDTV

All LED TV's (with the exception of OLED, which make up literally .00001% of consumer TVs right now) are LCD.

We're talking about LED vs CCFL, which refers to backlighting. Both are LCD's however.

So no worries, you're not receiving a "double dose." Ha.

It's not really a 120Hz Tv. Check the reviews on Amazon. Buyer beware!

z9z91 03-24-2013 03:10 PM

If you live green and want a TV that doesn't hike up your electric bill, stay away from this TV as it uses over 200W of power compared to 50W on an LED TV.

sunspotzsz 03-24-2013 03:48 PM

this seems to be a better deal

Having a CCFL vs. LED does NOT significantly reduce your carbon foot print. END OF THE STORY. Check out the website for calculating your carbon footprint to decide for yourself how GREEN you are living.
http://www.nature.org/greenliving.../index.htm

FYI green living takes much more dedication than making a TV purchase decision at your finger tips. Please do yourself a favor and don't be delusional about how green a TV in a living room can be. At its production damage to the environment is already done beyond repair.
Much more effective and responsible way of living green would be in a scale 1000 times more significant. For example, buying a Natural Gasoline vehicle (electric vehicles don't count because US uses 70% coal and 30% natural gas to produce that very electricity that make people feel green about their vehices) to reduce CO2 emission. Not using plastic bottles and plastic wares. Installing solar panels at homes.

i am in philly, need a new "baisc" TV for a brigher living room. trying to decide if this one is worth it.

chrismbello 03-24-2013 05:55 PM

I'm debating between this and the 47LM4600 for $504.99. The question for me becomes is LED And 3D worth the $65 difference. I guess it's just a matter of preference though.

96corvette 03-24-2013 06:31 PM

its $579.99 now the 47LM4600

zazon 03-24-2013 08:15 PM

I wish I needed another TV.

ranjanrocks 03-24-2013 08:21 PM

good deal!!! repped

CuseHoo 03-24-2013 08:21 PM

There are also multiple debates (which is not worth rehashing here) about if 120 or 240 hz are even worth it. I use my tv in my bedroom and don't play any games on it. So I am not doing anything that will happen at above 60 HZ right now anyway.

dcobb 03-24-2013 08:47 PM

damn, I already bought the 55" 3D LG last week holding out for a deal like this. Oh well, I spent $250 more but got a few more inches, LED, and 3D which my kids love and a good lookin TV

audiokingman 03-24-2013 09:17 PM

More important than the useless 120Hz, 240Hz, CCFL, & LED debates, does anyone know if the screen is matte (non reflective) or highly reflective and shiny?

dufan 03-24-2013 09:47 PM

Great deal. Bought it for my parents. They were ready to blow $600 at Best Buy on a TV of virtually the same size. As long as this lasts more than 6 years I'll be content.

Getting internet mad at your ranking the importance of attributes, but definitely closer to matte.

Maybe you should come out of your shell a little bit and READ a bit more carefully. Did I say having an LED TV "significantly" reduces your carbon footprint? In fact it would be hilarious if that alone would do it. END OF STORY (yeah, my store ends here, unlike yours) :eek:

Outdated doesn't mean worse. CCFL TVs produce better colors.
That UV doesn't harm your eyes or anything else. You get more UV from the sun.

As long as the mercury in the tube, it's not going to leach anywhere.
Even a better idea is not to throw it in a landfill.

What is worse to throw in a landfill: a ccfl backlit TV or a Toyota Prius?

Not sure if you're just making a joke or asking a real question here.

The Prius battery disposal issues and "worse than a Hummer" studies have been widely debunked.

The batteries are recycles of just like any other NiCd batteries. They don't cause any significant damage to the environment. (Assuming of course, you actually take them to Toyota to have it recycled and don't just dump the batteries in a landfill.)

CCFL disposal is unfortunately not quite so simple.
