    if the nose bridge is tight and doesn't need a tune-up and the lenses are still useable, i'd say its a great deal. that's a 3rd gen plasma and is fairly common. but with the discontinuation of the x-metal line, as well as if it doesn't need a tune-up and replacing the lenses, $165 is a great deal.

    this may be a dumb question but how can you tell its a 3rd gen? the nose piece is pretty tight and the lenses are in great shape.

    The "B" at the end of the serial number tells you its a gen 3. If there was no letter it would be a gen 1, a letter "A" is gen 2, and "B" is for gen 3.

    I would say that is a decent price as well if they are in good condition. They are only going to get harder to get a good prices as time goes on now.

    here you go:

    based on your last reply, i'd say its a great deal. $165 was the price point a few months ago before the discontinuation started and i think prices have gone up a bit since then. congrats!
