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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I have been through 2 of these sets in 6 months.. the "lamp" keeps burning out. The entire unit was replaced by the retailer the first time (it lasted 3 months) The second unit has just went out(it lasted 3 months).
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...
