    My New Floor Stander Build

    Worth biting on a "2 week floor model" CX?

    There is a local B&M store offering a 48" CX "2 week floor model that's in otherwise brand new shape" for $1k, but I think it's likely I can knock off another hundred or two if I visit in-person. Should I bite? I heard it's not reliable to count on checking the runtime of the TV since it can...
