Thanks to you both.

The Kuro has left me. " />
That was quick! Nice one. It was last Xmas eve mine went! Only got £500 for it too. But it did have some screen burn that you could see on and off.
I do feel like I could have got more for it, another 2 people were very interested, and another person has just listed that they wanted one.
The cash is in my hand though, and the buyer is a Kuro lover, so it's gone to a good home.
This 32" is taking some getting used to though.
Now I feel guilty for suggesting you accept £500.
Note to self, don't stick your nose into other people's business transactions.
Don't worry Strapped, I got what I expected to get, £500 was always my aim.
It's just with the comments and enquiries on AVForums about my listing, it does seem that £500 is cheap for a 1080p Kuro on that site.
BUT, £500 is in my hand, and who knows how much longer the Kuro will last for, and as there is no warranty left, it could be a lot worse.
I am starting to worry about the GT with all the reports of buzzing though, so from a selfish point of view, I hope mine arrives buzz free.
Well, onwards and upwards, hopefully.
I have similar anxieties. I'll need to get the GT50 up, running, and comprehensively tested before I can relax. At least we bought from a reliable retailer that I'd expect to be sympathetic should we have problems.
I'm determined to think positive! Buying a TV shouldn't be this stressful.
John Lewis are delivering my GT and BDP today, got the paperwork through the post yesterday.
I know it's the afternoon/ evening slot, and I remember it could be as late as 9pm, but I can't remember if it's from 1pm or 2pm.
I think it's 2 but might be wrong. In John Lewis today they had a 50VT50 markdown from £1800 to £1350. It didn't say it was used. Let us know how you get on when it's delivered.
I saw a GT50 in JL yesterday, was a customer return or display model, but was only £740, and still no buyer.
The general public are obsessed with lcd/led.
