Still fantastic picture

Frank Eichelberger III, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: Purchased new in 2006 for $3500 - 61" was the biggest you could get and this was worth the money. Still going strong on the original lamp. I received an extra-lamp under the warranty when it was having some momentary issues with a warning light but by the time they sent me the new lamp worth $200 it...

Still going after 8 years...

GG1, Amazon

  • Summary: Gotta say this TV has held up longer than I expected. About 2-3 years ago I bought a new bulb at my dad's suggestion and changed it out (before necessary) and I saved the old one just in case this one goes out. I haven't had any service calls in the ~8 years we've had it.

Running 6 years strong!!

Justin D. Arnett, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought my HD-ila brand new from Z-best electronics. I paid over 3k for it at the time. I know the downside to all DLP/LCOS tv's is the lamp burning out, however 6 years later, mine is still going strong. My tv averages at least 4 hours of use per day.

works great...looks great..

The Evil Critic, Amazon
12 June 2009
  • Summary: Seems like this is one of those items that the superstitious might not wish to give a favorable review, unless they first knock on wood. I think many people realize they can't give an accurate assessment until they've owned it for a good length of time.

Great TV

Larry L. Swope, Amazon
28 May 2009
  • Summary: Great TV - I have had this tv for 4 years and have experienced no issues. Great picture for Blu Ray, HDTV and Playstation 3. I have averaged about 6 hours a day for the past 4 years and the original lamp is still going strong. My only wish would be that they installed additional HDMI inputs.

staceymac49, Amazon
12 January 2006
  • Summary: We have owned this TV for 9 months now and JVC repair man just left my house. When I bought this TV I asked the sales people and the JVC rep at the store how long the lamp would work for before it needs to be replaced. No one knew.

lamp problems

Michael Karukin, Amazon
27 November 2005
  • Summary: Lamp/fan unit on 52z585 broke after only 4 months. They (Brandsmart) service says i get 2 free replacements then I'm on my own. Buyer beware. Good picture but feeling nervous about long term reliability. Don't buy this TV. Next time, I'll buy a Sony.

Can you say "chromatic aberration"??

E-lcos "elcos", Amazon
2 February 2005
  • Summary: I have been through 3 of the HD61Z575 sets in the last 2 weeks. They all suffer from chromatic aberration: whenever there is a high-contrast object on the screen (e.g., white letters on a dark background, such as displayed using an on-screen guide) there is a one-pixel-wide stripe of green on one...
