    I would like to sell my TV (bought in 2008). This is the description:

    1) Toshiba Regza 32CV510U 32” THINLINE 720p LCD HDCineSPEED

    It also includes a

    2) jWIN JDVD509 5.1 Channel Progressive Scan DVD Player w/Karaoke

    3) and a TV stand

    (all in great condition).

    How much do you think could I could get for all three? I live in the US, so suggestions based on the US market would be appreciated (not sure if this is an international forum).

    'not sure if this is an international forum' - predominantly a UK (EU) Forum but plenty of US members and visitors too.

    'How much do you think could I could get for all three?' - not a lot, the world is awash with old TV's. A quick trip to eBay_ and there are hundreds of 32" TV's listed starting at around 10$.

    I sometimes find homes for old kit with local charities.

    As you were informed on MSE they have little or no value.

    For another valuation try a US website no doubt you will get the same reply there:

    Not worth bothering with. I'd give them away.

    Thanks everyone. I got a potential offer of $20-40 after posting it on pawnguru.com. I was shocked at how low the offer appeared to be, given the price I originally paid for it. The owner of the pawn shop insisted that he wanted me to bring it to the shop to inspect along with the stand, which is not worth the hassle. I guess I haven't kept up with technology and for a number of reasons, these TVs are now apparently worthless - even in perfect condition.

    Unfortunately with technology, what you paid for it is immaterial. Even a TV bought just a couple of years ago you will barely get a 1/4 of the price second hand now. So a TV almost 10 years old unfortunately is not going to return much at all, even if it is in perfect condition.
