    Recently at work I won a best buy gift card and am considering using it to buy a new tv. So now I'm looking to see how much I could realistically sell my current tv, a sony kdl 32ml130, for. Quick summary: its a 32 inch lcd 720p tv produced back in 2007. I've checked around the web, and although I've seen a few listings they seemed too high to me. So anyways what would be a fair price to sell a 2007 sony 32 lcd model, in good condition, for? Thanks.

    PS: If there are online retailers who take in used tv's for store credit, I would consider that too.

    Well Amazon sells them new for about $350, you could probably get $300 out of it.

    Yeah that was one of the listings that I saw which seemed way too high. For a 720p 2007 model sony tv i wouldnt expect to get anywhere near that. Plus it wasnt actually amazon.com. They are individual users. So they can sell their tv's for any silly price they want. Doesn't mean it has a chance to be bought. I'm just looking for a price that will quickly garner interest.

    Whoops, apparently I can't read.

    I dunno man, some people would pay $300 for something like that.

    tbh, I dont think you will be able to get $100-150 for it
    its a used tv from 5 years ago
    you can buy a brand new one for about $200-300 (abit some junky brand)

    If you're going to use something like eBay you can set the initial bid to $99 and the "Buy It Now" price to $300 and just let the auctioners decide how much it's worth.

    ( Obviously only use prices you'll be satisfied with though. )

    If you're thinking about selling it on eBay, I recommend starting the bid at 99 cents and let it play through. It's what I've done for the last few items I've sold. The last thing I sold was a Macbook from 2007 and it went all the way up to $405.
