I bought this used from CowBoom for $127. The coax input was ripped out of it and I got it for the little kids using a comcast $2 a month SD box with only coax out. So Newegg had it for $130 shipped last night and I was going to test it this morning and see if it played ok with a VCR/DVD player.
This morning it was $10 cheaper at $99.99 and went from $20 shipping to free shipping so I ordered one. Good reviews, 720P, good for little kids or a garage TV or whatever. Three HDMI inputs, my garage TV only has one.
This one has a bunch more inputs than the 60" panasonic plasma I just bought. I'm looking to replace a dead 24" bedroom tv and this is just about right. BTW: you won't be able to see the difference between 720 and 1080 on a 26" display.

I have a 26 inch TV the garage. I have an older computer hooked up DVI to HDMI and I can stream Amazon Prime as well as you tube, etc. and cable TV. It really helps when I'm working on the car, organizing the garage, etc.
It's 720. I use a 720 for the garage TV/monitor and it's too big but fine out there for getting Netflix/Amazon prime/you tube going. I wouldn't want to use it as a daily monitor, you really should get 1080 to use as a daily monitor IMO.
Seems like a deal. Not 100% sure though, some of the reviews indicated some issues, that you might expect from a refurb unit.
What I don't get is, if these are refurb units, then why did someone need to flash the firmware? You would think that if these units came from the factory, that they would re-flash them all there before sending them back out again. That alone gives me some pause.
This TV looks like a monster when you see sideview. I want a TV to drop-install from roof above the elliptical machine but I am afraid this will be way too heavy for that. Any suggestions on a thin panel 21-25" TV? thx

It's really light. It says 18.7 pounds with stand but the whole package delivered with box, TV remote, packing material and stand was 17.9 according to UPS. So the TV with no stand, box, remote, etc. probably is not more than 12 pounds. It doesn't feel like much of anything to pick up. I'm replacing a 14 inch CRT in the kids room and it's probably 3 or 4 times as heavy LOL.
Dang. That 99995 limit lulled me to mull it over for a day, instead of just jumping. Now every TV deal that shows up here I will be comparing it to the lost $89.95 TV I could have had. It will haunt me for years.
My TV came. It came with a universal remote that doesn't work with Seiki. And I just sent the broken TV back to CowBoom that came with the correct remote. Anyone have any ideas? I can't send it back to Newegg because they don't have any to swap out with, you guys bought them all.
I found another remote on eBay and Newegg credited me back $20. It was weird because the remote was $20.99 and they said they would credit up to $25. And they credited $20 instead of $20.99. Good enough. The TV works fine other than not having a remote that works. Took me awhile to change settings without a remote.
