When you want to buy the latest technology but do not have the budget, buying a second hand LED TV can be a viable alternative. However there are a few things you should look out for to ensure you are getting what you pay for.
1. Is It Too Good To Be True?
If your deal seems too good to be true, it usually is. Though we all want to grab a bargain, make sure you are paying a realistic price for the goods you receive. If the price is too low, then listen to the warning bells that should be ringing in your head. High quality Panasonic LED TV’s will retain a high proportion of their value even in the second hand market. Ask the vendor why the price is affordable and if the answer doesn’t seem to tally, then step away.
2. Check for Signs of Damage
External signs of damage are always going to be the first indication that something is wrong. But don’t just look at the LED TV, have a scan around at other items, even if they are not for sale. If goods are not kept in a good condition, then it can be assumed that the TV has been subject to the same experiences and may not be as good as you first thought.
3. Ask For a Demonstration
Whether you are buying from a store or a private seller, the vendor should always be willing to give you a demonstration. But don’t just take a look at the TV, check the connectivity with external devices and have a go yourself to ensure everything is in full working order. If you are buying online then ensure there is a suitable returns policy or pay with a protected payment form such as PayPal, so that you have the necessary comeback should you need it.
4. Check for the Latest Functionality
Since the change over from analogue to Digital TV signals, many second hand LED TV’s are sold that will not work without a digital converter. Check to see if the set you are buying comes with a Freeview tuner inside. Though it is not a problem to purchase this equipment, it does make the overall cost of the TV higher and will mean extra equipment in the room. Furthermore take a look at the type of input points available. Analogue inputs were all that was need previously, but with more and more connectivity moving over to HDMi, you will need several of these sockets if you have newer equipment to link up.
5. Make Sure You Are Getting a Good Deal
With the premium price for new LED TV’s falling almost daily, though you may think you are getting a good deal on a second hand model, it may actually be cheaper to get a brand new one. Panasonic lead the way in the LED TV market yet a lot of their brand new products are still considerably cheaper than more costly second hand versions. Make sure the product you are buying has the functionality that will suit you. Sometimes it is cheaper to buy a modest new LED TV that exactly suits your needs rather than buying an all singing all dancing second hand TV that you simply won’t use.
