Summary: This TV I bought 7 years ago, does not work anymore due to a failed light engine. Which, by the way, they don't make anymore. Spend your money on a newer more reliable TV for less than what these are going for.
Summary: When new the image is great on these. The bulbs last 2-3 years if you get a quality phillips bulb, off brands are junk. But after a few years all these LCD projection type TV's, including Sony SXRD, JVC HDILA etc. have optical block issues which starts as yellow or greenish tint spots and slowly spreads to the entire image. The only fix is to replace the optical block unit which is more expensive than a new 60" TV.
Superb television - sound quality and display projection!!

Summary: I've had this television for about two years give or take a couple of months and it's still running strong. The only issue I'm currently having is that the color is starting to show a hint of greenish tint while watching certain programs. I've adjusted the color settings as well as purchased a HDTV Calibration DVD in order to correct the issue but it still persists.
Summary: I purchased this same TV back in 2007. It was a great purchase, excellent picture that most people who saw it did not think it was a rear projection. No flaws what so ever. In 2010 I wanted to upgrade(so I thought) to a larger HDTV with 3D capability, so I purchased a 65 inch Mitsubishi---what the &%ck? I now have 3D but he JVC picture quality makes the Mitsubishi look as if I had rabbit ears connected for the HD signal. The Mitsubishi refresh rate sucks.
Summary: My wife was ready to buy a year before I was. But I kept reviewing, researching, wandering the stores, comparing. It just looked like the best picture out there in that size for the money. We finally bought it in September 2006. Today it's December 2008 and we STILL LOVE IT! We watch Netflix movies, both DVDs and Instant downloads, almost every night. VERY HAPPY with our purchase. We don't call it a big TV. We refer to it a a small theater. Just add popcorn!
Summary: We reviewed the other (nearly identical) model on our show in March and I liked it so much I decided to buy one. I love Amazon.com, that's why the review is also posted here. When I got mine, I was overjoyed. You can check out the full review of the FN model at htguys.com, but here's the conclusion: What we liked * Awesome HD picture * Amazing black levels * Great, real color * Excellent detail * Two HDMI inputs * Price What we disliked * Remote control * Menu system *...
Summary: I've owned this display now for about 3 months. Simply put; I could not be happier. The picture is absolutely stunning and flawless. When watching Discovery HD on my DirecTV HD receiver; you are there! At the time of this writing Discovery HD is about 3 weeks into their "Planet Earth" series and to see the beauty of this incredible program on this display is quite frankly mind-boggling.
Summary: It took me months before I made up my mind about a TV, it was a hard decision to go with LCD, Plasma or Rear Projection. They all looked great but everyone has their own opinion it seemed, but since I wasn't going to hang the TV, I saw no reason to spend the extra, plus the reflection off the other screens would have been too much I thought, and I was 100% right about the choice.
Summary: I finally made a decision on which HDTV to purchase after a lengthy study. Although I am not taking delivery for a few days, I feel I know this tv very well. Also I hope this review can help others who are considering this unit. I was torn between the Sony XBR2, the Samsung 61" and the JVC. All are 1080p but the Samsung is said to have "wobulation" which is not TRUE 1080p so... I finally decided to purchase the Sony, ($3000) based on all the great reviews this tv had.
