Picked up a brand new second hand Sony TV this evening. Won it last night in an auction. A Sony KDL40W5500.
In 2009-2010 this was one model from the top of the range. The reviews are excellent.
I bided my time waiting for this particular model but didn’t expect change from £200-250.
The couple I picked it up from had the receipt, the manuals. The remote was never used as they had a multi controller.
They paid £1099 from John Lewis late 2009. I paid £104. Bargain.
I drove to a village near Drotwich Spa to collect. 21 miles each way.
It’s pristine. No marks at all. Well looked after.
Just spent 20 minutes cleaning it with a microfibre cloth polishing it removing prints.
It’s come up like new. Mint. Piano black original PS3 finish. Beautiful picture.
It’s amazing how much money they’ve lost in a few years. I’d be gutted but that’s the market I guess.
I like a good quality screen & You pay for what you get.
I’ll never buy a new TV ever again as I’m perfectly happy with cared for used & saving nearly £1000.
It’s just amazing what u can get for £100 in a rampant capitalist consumer economy.
Retail shoppers are like mugs.
There she is:
All sparkly clean & hooked up.
When eBay provides a bargain it’s a real winner.
I’m over the moon.
yeh, people shop away the pain. brainwashed drones.
It’s unbelievable isn’t it.
You know I haven’t bought any new clothes in probably 10 years as you can get new or nearly new at boot sales for 50p-£2.
Even shoes & trainers I get new or nearly new.
I got a pair of new Levi’s with labels attached for £2.
I can get most I need to live of markets & boot sales. Only thing is food. I have to go & pay the shareholders for that.
This country & most are in a huge debt.
Every citizen has thousands yet they go shopping like machines & waste their hard earned on crap they don’t need to make themselves feel good. Get a high.
Consumers are addicts with credit.
When their in debt their controlled workers feeding the rich.
I couldn’t live with credit & APRs.
No, nor me. one of the reasons I left the UK- wages are deliberately kept at a level which means anything above survival entails getting into debt for. they’ve got it all worked out. it’s highly scientific.
Keep poor people poor with debt & tease them with big shiny things.
Get them into debt buying £1000 TVs & new cars. Lifelong mortgages & if all goes well you’ll get a few years debt free at the end to visit horrible tourist shit, rot & die.
They’ll take your house of you to pay for terrible abusive care whilst you suffer the indignity of nappies & relive poverty.
Live fast & play hard.
Get by & be happy.
That’s it really.
65 is old enough if your healthy otherwise 55 will do as long as you go suddenly. No long Drawn out humiliation diseases.
Funny enough I went to a boot sale today.
Got 5 PS3 games for 50p each & 2 movies for 50p.
Got a new with tags Superdry shirt for £1.
The tag said £69.99.
You’ve gotta laugh. The idiot that bought all those consumer items probably is still paying them off on their credit card losing sleep thinking of their next retail hit.
