That's cos it's old.  I bought one of these end of 2008.  Cost me $3500 or so.  Being the D (on samsung site it's listed at the LA46A650A1M) model it should have freeview HD built in.

To be honest mate - When it comes to buying LCD TVs or any TV for that matter, I buy them new.

Best to save up and buy a new one.

How much is the cabinet worth, Given that is an older model, i think that TV is worth about $2000 new (old stock discount), so if you adjust for 2nd hand in good condition it's about $1200-1300 then if you add the value of the cabinet it might be close to $1500, so it's not a bad deal, but not an awesome deal either.

There will not be very many 2nd hand TVs with freeview for sale, so if you can't afford >$2k it might be your only option.  I would recommend buying this over a new 42" TV (if that is as far as your budget could stretch) as bigger is always better! It's still a very good TV, even though it is older model.

Not sure about the exact price...But she says its between 200-400 bucks for the Cabinet. I have seen it and it looks quiet neat. So what you think now??

If you actually need a new cabinet and would be buying one anyway it's probably a good deal. First I would still go to harvey norman, powerstore & JB-HiFi they will usually drop 20% off retail for cash... if you are a good haggler or older stock you can drop 25-33% off the price. Also research on priceme.co.nz and pricespy.co.nz before you buy. You might also offer her $1400 and say you can pick it up today, or something like that. Still at $1500 it sounds good.

Whether its a good deal for you depends on a lot of factors, and if you can afford to spend more as well.

Ensure there are no scratches or blemishes on the screen. Ask for her purchase receipt, so you can check warranty.

If $1500 is your max to spend, then you probably can't afford to buy a new decent model of 46" HD LCD with freeview built it.

well i checked with Bond a Bond yesterday and they say the current value is 2.5K for that model although its no more produced.

Regarding the TV Cabinet, its looks pretty descent and not a cheap one certainly....There are no scratches on the TV and it plays FULL HD quiet well.

She is ready to provide the receipts for the TV, only thing is its under her name which I want to be changed to mine and also has 6 months warranty, which I have asked her to extend for another year on top of it.

extended warranty is usually a waste of money. you just need the receipt and consumer's guarantees act. If she is nice girl, then if the TV dies under warranty ask her if she will come to the shop when you return it.

I think this seems like a good deal, I checked what trademe expired auction and it seems cheap for what is available via trademe.

Thanks for that mate !
But then i dont think the CGA applies to private sales and purchases. I will have to check that with samsung and see what they have to say on this.

You would struggle to get Samsung / original retailer to cover you under the CGA I'd think.
From one of the links above...

"Faulty and unsatisfactory goods - the basics

If the goods you buy turn out to be faulty you are covered by the Consumer Guarantees Act. This includes second hand goods, and goods you have received as a gift.

However you won?t be covered if you bought:
Commercial goods (goods usually used for a business purpose)
In an auction
In an online auction
Privately"

Buying second hand means you often take your chances, extending a warranty may help reduce your risks though. It's your call. $1600 for a 46" TV from a few years ago... well they cost around 2.5k today. The cabinet may sweeten the deal of course.
