It is with a heavy heart
that I am letting everyone know the availability of a TH-65PF9UK 65" professional series Panasonic unit for DIRT CHEAP in the San Francisco peninsula area on craigslist. The reason I am posting it here is I hope someone that appreciates Plasma can take this unit, as otherwise I am afraid it may end up being discarded.
I actually went and looked at it just now. The picture quality is fine. I see no burn-in or any obvious issues (bought the AVS HD 709 disk and tested it very briefly). The reason I decided to pass on this is, it is just too big/heavy/massive for me. It doesn't fit in my minivan (due to the custom stand), and I would need professional help to move it into the house. It's just not something I am prepared to do at the moment.
It has a stand, but it is a custom built stand, not the factory stand, so it sits a bit taller. The custom stand seems to be heavier (wood base), so I am guessing the whole thing probably weights 200lb or more.
It is actually a business that's selling it (not surprising considering how much these things cost originally). And looks like they just want to get rid of it. So I am afraid they might discard it if no one wants it soon...
So, if you are in the market for a 65" plasma TV, and in the SF area, go take a look. The professional panny are built like a tank, and my feeling is this unit has plenty of life left seeing how bright the screen is and how close it is to my 60" professional series.
Unfortunately they don't have the remote, so I was not able get the hours (PT/WT) count.
- 65" TH-65PF9UK unit
- DVI input (so you can use hdmi-dvi cable)
- with factory speaker attached
- custom stand (metal in back, wood/composite base)
- no remote
They should be reposting the ad soon on craigslist. I hope it finds a good home.
I don't want to post their contact info here so PM me if you are interested.
