Not a bad price, but I'd be a bit concerned about the 70" model as a refurb, they are known to have an issue which causes bright spots all over the tv, and which gets worse over time. It's commonly discussed on avsforum, and I can say I have a tv with just that issue. It's getting replaced, but no guarantee it won't have the same issues, and I am willing to bet most of the refurb tvs are these defective tvs. Since they can't repair the panel, they likely just send it through a basic inspection and call it good. If someone inspected my tv quickly, they wouldn't notice anything wrong with it, it's only with a careful eye on the right screen or background that you can see the issue.
