I wish I had something good to trade, I was sure trying to win one of those. I wanted to have one during football season, to take to bingo with me so I dont have to choose between bingo and the Bucs! Maybe youll hang on to it for a little while. Great win though!!!:smile3: :smile3: :smile3:

I probably WILL hang on to it for a while because I never get good offers immediately for the big wins I post here that I want to trade. PM me anytime you want or (leave a message here if it's still visible by the time you want it ). :)

Hi.
I checked it out. If it was a 128 MB or 256MB mp3 player and made by Rio or Nike or Sony, I wouldn't have hesitated to trade.
I also checked the page and saw that you need to download patches from their site (already!) just to make sure the player starts up all the time! LOL. Thanks for the offer. I really do appreciate it.

OnyeaboM
March 9th, 2003, 5:43pm
Hi folks.

I didn't state this in my first post so here it is for those who need it:

(SONY) FDL-22OR

I just got my Killian's poster... she is very nice. I'd be tempted to trade if I didn't have my own :grin5:

Is the Sky Vodka poster current? I missed it but I did get a St Pauli Girl recently. And is the Sky poster as nice as the Killian's one?

No, sorry I don't, but I'll up my offer to $50 +shipping to compensate. Hey, I don't live too far......Talladega........we camped at Oak Mountain this weekend. We were practically in your back yard!! Hoover and Trussville are my two most favorite places to shop..........

OnyeaboM
March 10th, 2003, 11:15am
Yep. Hoover definitely rocks. Two words: Riverchase Galleria!
Awesome place to go! Haven't been to Trussville (recently).

Ok, here's my offer: $70. Whaddaya say? (Please take into consideration the item and its brand & value - $50 off its retail price). :)

March 10th, 2003, 11:26am
I think that model has been discontinued and replaced with another one that retails slightly cheaper (screen area is a bit smaller, too)............but I understand your situation. Will have to think about it and get back with you later.

OnyeaboM
March 10th, 2003, 11:41am
Sure, no problem.

As for it being discontinued and what not, I don't know. What I do know is that I won it recently from the Supercheats.com sweep that just ended February 28th. And the sponser had about 28 of them to give away.

If no one else decides to take it before you do (if you do), it's still here for the taking.

Also, Sony's electronics store site www.sonystyle.com did not turn up any search results when I typed in 'watchman' as a search key so, I went to www.amazon.com :

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-url/index=electronics&field-keywords=watchman&search-type=ss&bq=1/002-4432690-7392860

There are/were 6 results. The screen sizes barely differ from the one of mine plus (there's only one that's bigger and it is discontinued/not stocked), there is one with a screen size listed exactly the same as mine.

In overall size, mine looks like it's the biggest, from the images.

This is the exact one I have and it have great reviews for it by people who have actually used it:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004VVJR/qid=1047313890/sr=1-6/ref=sr_1_6/002-4432690-7392860?v=glance&s=electronics

OnyeaboM
March 10th, 2003, 11:43am
....It's Great Reviews From Owners Of It


For anyone interested, check the exact one I have here:

March 10th, 2003, 12:18pm
Thanks for the amazon tip. It looks like you can get the new updated version for 79 dollars from amazon. pearllee

OnyeaboM
March 10th, 2003, 12:21pm
Pearlee, if you say so. LOL.

Why is that one valued at $79.99 and mine is valued at $119.00 ?

Simple: The 'updated version' (as you call it) is radioless. Mine has an AM/FM radio BUILT-IN. The $79 one doesn't even have any kind of radio. Plus, mine probably has better features overall. Updated indeed. :)

Also: Look at mine and look at the cheaper one: Look how inferior it is. So small, so plain. Mine is metallic and bigger and has more features. :)

OnyeaboM,

The model you have is old technology. It uses a passive matrix LCD screen.

Current watchman products ( http://www.sel.sony.com/SEL/consumer/ss5/home/tv/watchman/index.shtml ) use active matrix technology which is brighter and produces better color than passive-matrix displays. You also get a wider viewing angle with an active matrix screen. The FDL-252T has sold for $73.00 on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3008845696&category=11074

Now you can always sell the item to an antique collector like me :p

You send me $75.00 and the TV and I'll trade you an autographed mini Marshall University football helmet signed by Randy Moss in his rookie season with the Vikes. Helmet has a low end retail of $150.00 and comes with photo from the signing and affidavet as well.

If you are not interested in the helmet, then anyone else here a Vikings or Randy Moss fan?? Lets talk as since this is the off season I'm ready to make a deal.

Actually these are very nice TV's since i won one recently as well.. my hubby watch the race yesterday while eatting at the table and the picture was pretty good since we live out. It is the beginning of the year and newer models are coming out. But when I received mine just at the beginning of march it did retail online at around $100. I am not interested in buying it but good luck in selling it. its a fun little tv.. it even scans for channels!

Ravin, gotta love how people come to this post to post negative nonsense. Every time I win something and post it, someone always comes along to say something bad or negative about the prize. It's almost like it's their way of coping for being a sore loser. So far, there are like 3 or 4 of those such types of people in this single thread alone.

Have a good one folks :) & get over it few, negative vibed ones.

Well Ron, I NEVER expected to sell it for the $119 value that was listed in the sweeps rules, I just stated what it was. I have never sold a prize I've won at full value. Plus, buying it from me, you have an extra reassurance of knowing that you get what you asked for. I won it from a sweepstakes that many people on this board know about. Better than Ebay anyday if you ask me. No risk on my end. Risk using Ebay. All that you've typed above is boring man and I know someone will take this TV off my hands eventually and despite all you said. It's a great TV! LOL. Later dude. :rolleyes: <------ Yep, I really am rolling my eyes at ya. Ha!

That was so lame. I said in earlier posts that I had plans for it before even entering the sweep. Saw that I didn't need it anymore after I had won it.
