Summary: This process is just starting but since I had good luck with CRTs of Mitsubishi's in the past I bought this set. Two weeks after the warrantee expired a green line appeared two inches in on the right side. The service people have not appeared yet but based on the internet search of the problem the set may be toast without any help coming from the company. Will keep you posted on the problem but it does not look good.
Summary: As other reviews have mentioned this TV's screen has some issues. I purchased mine in June of 2008, as of October 2008 the screen developed a broad red vertical stripe on the right hand side of the screen. My mistake was not checking reviews on this and other Mitsubishi TV's. The LCD panel developing these vertical lines is a common issue with Mitsubishi TV's based on reviews on this and other sites.
Would Downgrade to One Star If I Could - 2009, MITSUBISHI REPLACING THESE FOR BUYERS WITH DEFECTIVE TV'S
3 July 2008
Summary: MAY 7, 2009 UPDATE - Mitsubishi is replacing these for buyers with defective TV's. We received our LT46246 yesterday - and purchased an extended warranty from the local audio-video store as I am taking no more chances on Mitsubishi products. I will do a review of the replacement TV in a few months, just to be sure it is still working.
Summary: I have owned this set a 52244 for 2 months and except for the poor speakers its the best tv for the money I have found. I see that music man has it in for Mits so dont listen to his reviews as they are very wrong (he wrote 11 bad reviews for Mits and you know he does not own them and just is bad mouthing them) Roy
Summary: The reviewer of this set must have lost their mind or is paid by Mitsubishi to overrate their product. Mitsubishi once positioned itself on the upper scale of quality video and television products. No more. The sound from this TV is pure tin box and their customer service and customer relations is pure garbage. Don't touch this or any other Mitsubishi Television product with a 10-pole. You'll be taken and you'll be sorry.
Summary: This television replaced a Sharp Aquos set (LC-46D62U) of the same screen size in my home theatre system after careful research. I have accumulated a large library of Blu-ray and HD-DVD discs, and was anxious to view them using a 1080p/24 output, as is recommended by all home theater reviewers. The Sharp did not accept a 1080p/24 signal and surprisingly, neither does their most recent 120Hz model (LC-46D92U).
