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: 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.
