The A + grade. Everyone wants an A+ grade in school, but most of aren't willing to put the spit ball gun down or toss out that those paper footballs. These TV's are willing to do both?... An A+ grade TV means that it arrived to us unopened. Even though it was a return, mis-delivery, shelf pull, or discontinue, this TV was unopened and untouched. All the same, we have to open it up and verify the contents and test the unit to make sure it is absolutely perfect, especially if it wants an A+ grading.
The A grade. Second place isn't first loser when it comes to these TV's. An A grade means that when this little beauty arrived it had already been opened and then sealed back up. Some of the protective plastics may be missing from around the base or frame, packaging may be opened, or packaging material may show signs of disruption. But, aside form that the TV will be perfect. There will be no blemishes on these TV's. The boxes may or may not be available for these TV's.
The B grade. What's the B grade mean to you? Savings... A B grade TV is one that is missing its protective plastics and has sustained some small amount of scuff or surface blemishing. The screen on a B grade TV will be free of all blemishes. These TV's are often perfect looking with glossy plastics and a single insignificant scratch or buff in a corner or along an edge. These TV's are still perfect for the living room where you can wow your guests with an amazing TV that cost you fractions of the retail price.
The C grade. It really is just average... But not when it's your TV! Imagine getting that man cave TV, or one for the kids play room and paying less than half of retail! These TV's have physical blemishes on the plastics and may have a small screen abrasion or dead pixels. To a picky or discerning eye this TV could be an annoyance, but if your being paid for your grades then a C is your best bet!?! You can get a 60" Vizio Smart TV for as little as $300! C grade TV's often do not come with boxes and may not have a stand with them. But you will get a remote and wall mounts are available for a discounted price.
The D grade. A D is the closest you can get before it gets scrapped. Do you want a really cheap TV that will go out in your garage, hang it on the wall in the barn, or let the kids watch cartoons on it? These TV's have some significant screen blemish. This is typically a crack, a line, or a spot. Screen blemishes are beyond reasonable repair, so we don't suggest trying to fix it. But if you just need a big TV for a rarely used space, this might be your bet. We have Vizio 50" TV's for as little $125 for the D grade.
