With the cost of LCD televisions nose-diving over the past few years, many consumers assume that buying a new unit is the way to go.
However, buying a used television can still allow you to save hundreds of dollars (and there’s nothing wrong with that).
Of course, this leads to an important question: what’s the secret to buying a used television that will provide many years of high level service?
While there are no guarantees, here are a few things you can do:
· Compare the used price to the new price. Before pulling the trigger, make sure you know you’re getting a deal. You don’t want to spend $500 on a used TV when you can purchase new for the same price.
· Know the brand. Let’s face it: some television brands are better than others. When buying used, focus on those with the best reputation, which include Samsung, LG, and Vizio.
· Verify the quality. You should never assume that a television works (even if that’s what the seller is telling you). You should verify the quality by turning it on, viewing the picture, and checking for any problems. Is there any color distortion? Is the screen cracked? Is something wrong with the display?
With these details in mind, you’ll find it much easier to buy a used television. In the end, it all comes down to finding a high quality unit at a competitive price. This is what you should be looking for!
