Runco SP-50 50" Plasma TV
« on: September 02, 2017, 01:41:02 PM »
Great display from a classy manufacturer,  in mint condition,  includes remote and wall mounting bracket.  This display was an offshoot from the Pioneer Kuro line,  it was manufactured in 2004.  High coolness factor IMO.

Amazing picture on this plasma at 1080.  Each unit comes individually ISF calibrated from the factory.

Thanks!  Even Olga (aka my wife) agreed it looked better than the $900 Sharp Aquous,  and the frame just looks cool.  So I am leaning slowly towards keeping it for the master bedroom or even the main movie watching area (behind the screen).   There is an SP-60 (weighs a whooping 150 pounds) that is also rumored to be a fine tuned Pioneer Kuro,  will keep an eye out for it.

It sounds like it might mean more to you than it would to anyone else.

Well, I flip some stuff, but sometimes you just have to keep a piece if it is important to you. I hope a signature comment is a good thing.

Your comment was fine,  it just had that brutal "if you like it so much why don't you buy it" honesty. And I followed your advice by the way,  I bought it.  I still need to figure out what amount to pay the seller since demand appears low but I still feel it is a great piece.  I have a bunch of stuff to sell on consignment.  Need to get some of it on the list,  went here first. 

Take care - I hope your Mom is doing better.

Well, I didn't realize you were selling it for someone else when I wrote that.   That detail does change the dynamic, if only subtly.
