I can buy a BeoVision 4-65 in my town. A BeoLab 7.x (horizontal), a BeoSystem 3 and a wall mount are included. The price would be less than for a BeoSound Moment ...

I am tempted ...

Any advice?

I have a BV4-50 Full HD with a BeoSystem 3, which i bought about 2 years ago for about 550€. I still love the TV and the Beosystem 3, to which i later bought a Beolab 7-2.

If the price is right I wouldn’t hesitate, but keep in mind that it is an old screen and that it might not lasts for many years to come.

Sold:

BeoMaster 7000, BeoVox RL7000, BeoCenter 6-23 DVI, Beolab 4, B&O F1000 furniture, Beovision 8-26

My main TV is a BV 4-65 with Beosystem 3 and I absolutely love it.  I think the pictures is fantastic for the price of them right now.  As long as it is not too much I would go for it.  Just keep in mind that screen is crazy heavy.  Around 200 lbs.   It took 3 people to hang it on the wall. Well worth it after everything was installed. 

Beosound 9000 MK III, Beosound 2300, Beosound Century, Beogram 5005, Beogram 1800,  Beolab 8000, Beolab 5000,  Beolab 4000, Beovision 8-32, Beovision 4-65, Beovision 10-32, Beoplay S3, Beoplay A2, Beoplay E8.

Saw my first LG OLED the other day. It was very impressive but every time I go home to see my parents, I’m still mesmerised by the picture quality of their plasma BV4-65. If you can get the 4-65 for small money then you’ll love it and even if the panel dies in a few years, you would have got a stunning picture and pleasure for very little money and not feel bad.

Make sure you use a small crane or lots of friends to mount it otherwise you could spend thousands on spinal surgery and physio.

Later versions of BeoSystem 3 are incredibly sophisticated and repairable. BeoLab 7 is fantastic in any size. 1080p BeoVision 4 is top-shelf but uses a ton of energy. If you have a way to build a PUC table I think it is wonderful opportunity.

I've always been fascinated by the fasciation with plasma screens 'wearing out'.

In all my years of dealing in B&O I've never once seen, or heard of, a plasma screen go wrong through just plain being used too much.

The BV4 screen is superb. If it's cheap - go for it.  It may not have the absolute clarity of modern screens, but it's good enough - and it's B&O.

Alternatively you might have owned a Panasonic plasma that went off with a bang (sic) after 7 years and was a write off!

You pays your money and takes your chance!

It was a brilliant tv and I wouldve happily bought a new one had they still made plasma screens however I wouldn't buy a similarly aged used model.
