Some things that are quantifiable that may help the project:
  - Number of seconds until warm up.
  - Screen resolution.
  - Date of manufacture.
  - Does it have its packaging?
  - Are its cables intact?
  - Are the connection points (e.g. ends of cables) intact?
  - Is there ghosting?
  - What does it weigh?

I can't think of an easy way to measure lumens and contrast, however. I
can't help thinking that any metric would depend on the perception of the
observer, lighting conditions in the room, etc.
