I picked up a Sharp Aquos 42inch 1080p for 700 a few months back. TV was brand new in the box unopened. They had one on display and pulled mine from the back. Full warrantee from them. The tv has been great, no issues. I'd definately go back and get other stuff if i needed to.

expect every ipods to have some scratches
some are very clean but some itouches are so badly scratched, you can't barely even read writings on the back
but it's only backside, front face is always clean
They dont let you open the box and cherry pick so your luck

Well I bought a 47" LCD off of them, basically straight from the display to the ground with shrinkwrap and into my car. However I did get a 1 year warranty. TV had some scratches on the stand and was missing the manuals
