Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Hmm, I have a 65VT60 that I bought in April this year, still have the original box and all the accessories.  I am in Auckland and it has crossed my mind to sell.

PM me if you want to discuss more.

Plasma TVs are extremly power hungry. Why one would want that nowadays? Compared to LED - I personally see not reason to have plasma today...
I am gettig plasma tvs nowadays either for free and sometimes for $3-$45 when people just wish to get rid of them. 
I dismantle them for parts for my projects and pay to dispose the rest.
Just dumped 3 screens, and one Panasonic (paid $20) and one LG (still working from friend who upgraded to full HD) are waiting to be dismantled.

Give me more!
The older - the better (~2004 - 2008). Older models are not HD and have more powerfull discrete components of my interest...
Cheers

The reason for wanting a top end plasma is that it still produces a better picture than new LCD / led tvs, even first gen 4k tvs.

Slightly more cost in power is a small price to pay for a quality picture.

Sorry to hijack the thread, just had to add my 2c.

PS if the op isn't interested in the TV in Auckland, I might be keen 😊

Exactly this.  LCD's by their nature cannot produce a picture quality comparable to Plasma.  Only OLED comes close/is better.  And the VT60/VT65 series are considered the best (excepting the ZT which was never released in NZ).

And @33coupe - sure, I will let you know what happens.

Couldn't agree more. The extra power cost is peanuts compared to the picture quality. No high end LCD can come close to matching the cinematic picture quality of the late model Panny plasmas.

I own a 65ST60 and would trade it for quids (apologies to the OP). Am currently on the lookout for a second hand 50ST60 as a second set.

I have the new Sony 930C, coming from a Panasonis ST50, the clarity on the Sony beats the pants off the Panny, but boy does it lose out in contract, black and especially motion. I miss my old Panasonic.

I don't regret the purchase as the blacks are manageable and the upscaling to 4k is insanely good. Plus going to grab the 940c when it eventually releases and it FALD which should improve the blacks that little bit more.

A couple of farmers have 65" ST60 floor models with $2200 ticketed prices. I checked the hrs and they were sitting at around 8000 hrs...so a fair bit of floor usage. I was lucky and picked up a new in the box 65ST60 from the Albany farmers...probably the last one anywhere?. Was shocked to find a new plasma that I paid the full sticker price I mentioned before...should have tried to haggle it down. Absolutely impressed with it though. A step up from an ST50 I have.

@33coupe - The set I have didn't work out for the friend of the OP - they where looking around $1000 for a 65TV60, and I wanted more.  So if you (or anyone else) is still interested let me know.

Yeah, they said that someone on geekzone sold a 65VT60 for $1000, but I never saw that and cannot find any threads on it.  At that price I would have bought it.
