    I have recently upgraded to a 42" Plasma from a Loewe Aconda 9381ZW (Silver/Black) that I purchased 5 months ago.

    Any ideas on what i should do to sell this unit?
    If I put an ad in my local paper I don't think the general townies would appreciate the quality of such a system and it would be a waste of time.

    I am hoping to sell it at £900 (still got 19 months warranty) which is still cheeper than a 32 inch Wega from Currys, but I have got a feeling it will stay in the corner of my room for a long time unless I find someone who is looking for this particular brand of TV.

    Do you think I would get £900 for this?

    Hope you don't think I am trying to sell this on these forums, but I just want pointing in the right direction.

    Ebay is worth a crack(maybe a last resort).Try Loot aswell ,there are is a large range of kit that gets advertised in there.
    I reckon you'd get a buyer on here if you put it in the classifieds,nothing to lose!
    Lovely looking set though,have you got the curved stand aswell?

    Put it in the classified ads section on this forum has most people on here appreciate quality and you won't get messed about with loads of people coming to your house to view you'll just get people who are serious about buying it.

    It is.
    But what I will do is advertise it here on the classified adverts.

    Don't want to abuse these forums.
    I think they are so useful.

    Sold my 36" Panasonic within one day on eBay. A bit naughty but the buyer wanted it immediately so paid me direct when he came to pick it up. I then withdrew it from sale on eBay (which, to my surprise, you can do without financial penalty).

    He got the TV when he wanted it, I got my Buy It Now price in cash and the whole process cost me £2.50 listing fees to eBay.

    Sure, I was lucky but you'll be amazed how quick stuff sells on eBay.

    How much was the Loewe new? With the warranty you have a nice 'extra', especially for eBayers who might be a little wary.
