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.
