[The Source] Hisense Scratch & Dent 43" ($199.99) and 55" ($329.99) TVs back in stock

This was posted before at http://forums.redflagdeals.com/the-source-hisense-h7608-55-c-4k-led-smart-tv-refurbished-299-99-scratch-dent-329-99-2304869/
Looks like the 43" and 55" scratch and dent are back in stock
55" - $329 - https://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/p/108076914
43" - $199 - https://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/p/108076911
Personally I bought the 55" from the previous sale and I am very pleased with it. Some reviews are bad but most are due to the Youtube and Netflix apps "forgetting" the accounts. Personally I don't care about that as I am using a Xiaomi box.
Also, the Yonge/Eglinton location in Toronto has the 55" for $399.99, perhaps other locations have it too.

For anyone interested, I can confirm that the 55" scratch and dent model was practically brand new with plastic still attached to the TV frame.
The batteries for the remote came dead though; not a big deal.

Definitely worth the risk.

Thanks OP.
I will try this model before spending probably too much on a higher end tv.

Worst case scenario : return

HiSense is good. But few apps you can install for the smart tv OS. YouTube, Dailymotion, Netflix, major apps are preinstalled.
If we can dream it, we can make it!

Darn, the Samsung 40" @ $129.99 would have been perfect for my bedroom, but it's OOS:

The 55" Samsung NU8000 for $699 seems like a pretty good deal for a quality set. I got the 49" at London Drugs for $599 and am pretty happy with it.

Beware. They call them scratch and dent but they are store demos with thousands of hours on them. I think I remember mine having over 50 thousand hours.

I'd say the exact opposite. You basically won the lottery if yours is near new. I got the 55" and it still had someone's wifi and apps installed and some signed in and the screen was literally wrinkled and the antireflection coating had separated making the half screen fuzzy. It all would have been obvious if they turned it on even once. Total garbage. Also customer service chat told me to just email and ended the chat, so I emailed (and I was polite for both) and got zero response after "we got youy email" auto-reply, then they sent a survey where I ripped them apart and said I would like to be contacted and nothing for over a week now. Never again, they just lost me as a customer forever (unless the next deal lol)

50,000 hours? That would mean your tv has 2083 days of use which is about 5.7 years. Would they have had the tv in the store for that long?

Yeah after doing quick math 50k hours seems insane but even 5000 hours is too many for "scratch and dent".

Is there some way to check the total run time on Hisense TVs? I googled but couldn't find a solution; curious to know what my run time is to verify whether it is as new as I think it is and to inform RFD'ers. I am assuming the above poster bought a different scratch and dent TV brand?
