They can be worth quite a bit, or not very much. They retain financial worth better than other electronics but… This is perfect to know for so many reasons.
This page is to figure out what your used flat screen TV is worth. It’s a free calculator, intended for any non-technical person to use to appraise the value of their television. It will systematically ask you every relevant question we could come up with, and give an accurate value at the end. We think you’ll find there is nowhere else on the internet you can do this, though the internet is a big place. If you are selling your stuff, or just are curious about it’s worth this is the place to start. It’s objective and unbiased. It is suitable for accounting inventories, sale and purchase negotiations, or any other financial purpose. While we don’t promise it’s never slightly off, it has been used by professional accountants for business inventories and set, or helped set, the sale price of many transactions.
This is not the form to use for old fashioned tube TV’s (i.e. cube shaped – thicker than 1 foot); that’s a different one on this site.
I did systematically evaluate every factor and feature that I could think of for the value of the television. It’s not perfect, but I think you’ll find it’s better than anything else on the internet.
There are several factors that goes into this. A very large television set is worth more. These are one of the slowest changing technologies for electronics out there, easily the slowest of any on this site. However they do change and a new one is worth more than the old one. A large one is (generally) worth significantly more than a smaller one. …they can get very very large; ultimately a digital billboard is simply one connected to a slideshow on a computer. Unfortunately I don’t appraise such large exceptional units (which would vary significantly on where they are locate, the housing, and if either is included in the sale/valuation.)
Also as more features are added to TV’s (as technology advances) they aren’t all available in new ones at the same time. Therefore it’s possible for an older one to be effectively “newer” than one manufactured a few years latter. This is further complicated by warehousing before purchase. I assume the time from manufacture to sale is the same for all which is generally reasonable as this isn’t normally enough of a variance to matter for the financial value of the device.
TV’s are distinct from a monitor (though functionally very similar) in that it is intended to be a stand-alone display device. A Monitor is intended to only show an image from a computer (possibly a laptop), though though both can be used to connect to a gaming system such as X-box for example. In general a television has more options for input and is a more capable device, though display resolutions on a monitor are usually better. Resolutions are designed for, well the video of the incoming signal which is much, much less than a high resolution computer display. Monitors are usually (but not always) smaller and appraising one on this page won’t be accurate.
