    What does everyone think they would give this dude for this old tube TV? I'd give him about fifteen cents. Do some people really not have a clue what things are worth anymore?

    he was probably touching the TV when his house was struck, thus causing him to get a little fried too. The sad part is there is probably some idiot out there that will pay $200 dollars for it.

    T.V.'s are throw away any more, I don't know anyone who actually calls the service man out to the house once the warranty is up on one. I am the same way with computers, if they break with no warranty I throw them out and go buy another one. My lap top just broke last week, and I went to Wal-Mart and bought a brand new Dell for $400, so if I get 2 years out of it I will be happy. I bet you $20 Steve, that guy WILL get an offer on that TV for parts. Maybe someone needs a new glass screen or the plastic casing, I have seen crazier things.

    There are dozens and dozens of these things being sold each week in every major city. Some people get a new flat panel and just get rid of their old set for $50 and it's gone. Some are trying to sell them as if they were the latest and greatest things.

    He'd probably make more money if he parted it out to multiple people instead of selling the whole broken thing to one person...there are plenty of people out there looking for antique stuff or wanting to repair "antique" stuff... someday this tv will be antique... and someone somewhere will be willing to use it to fix one they already have...... just you watch... in 10 years when we're watching antiques road show. we'll see that little 36" JVC tube tv... and they'll probably get $200 for it then :D

    Haha, more craziness. I emailed him that only a drunk person would pay that much for this TV, considering that for just a bit more you could get a 50" NEW plasma.
