Offer: 43" Flat TV (missing 2" at top) (2 Miles S of Amherst Center) - We are retiring a Samsung 43 inch diagonal measure flat screen TV. It is between five and 10 years old. It was "smart" when purchased :) It gradually lost the top 2 inches of the screen Display. The rest of the screen works fine. Just thought we'd ask if anyone has any use for it before we get rid of it. Comes with stand and remote. Has inputs for HDMI, coax cable, USB.

Offer: Large white formica/particle board table (Amherst) Expired - This table is made of one-inch thick particle board covered in white formica. It is approximately 25 years old but in good condition. Has been disassembled and stored for the past 15 years. There is minor damage where the pieces were glued together and pulled apart, easily repaired by re-glueing when it is reassembled. None of the damage would show once re-assembled. The top is 5' 4" (64 inches) wide, and 26.5 inches front to back. The height is 29 inches. It has knee space for sitting along the full width of the front, but not on the ends which are supported by solid particle-board panels, and not on the rear where there is a support panel below the top that braces against the end panels. Thus it is suitable as a desk or work table but not as a dining table where chairs would need to be placed on all sides. It is plain white, very simple design. There are no drawers. It is HEAVY being thick particle board. PIck up in South Amherst with a vehicle capable of carrying the top which is long and heavy (see dimensions above). Photo of disassembled table, and sketch of assembly: Offer: working color laserjet printer. Amherst Expired - We retired this color laserjet printer in April, 2017, because it often misfeeds the first sheet of paper. But then it reprints the first page and prints remaining pages and other jobs without fuss until it is idle and cools down. Also, sometimes it complains that a toner cartridge is missing but cleaning the contacts on the cartridge makes it happy again. It is a Konica-Minolta Magicolor 2450 purchased in 2005. Its had light use printing 5,709 pages in its 12 years of service for us (average: 40 pages/month). It has 16% of the color toners left, 70% of a (newer) black toner cartridge, and 28% of the drum unit life remaining. If you’re willing to baby it a little, it will probably print a thousand or so color pages and thousands of black and white pages before it runs out of toner or croaks. It is large and heavy (16.9" (W) x 15.6" (D) x 13.4" (H)), 44 lbs and noisy when operating (the toner cartridges clunk as they cycle around inside). It looks similar to this photo . It will print from a USB cable (included). For printing from a network, it requires an ethernet cable connection. It will not print from wi-fi.
