Summary: I purchased the set new in early 2008 from a local Mitsubishi dealer, along with the matching stand. At the time, you really couldn't get a screen that big for comparable money. So, after 5 1/2 years of ownership, I am now on my second replacement lamp (current cost $35-95), and second replacement...
Summary: I have had mine since august of 07 and have had good luck with mine. The first bulb lasted 3 years and the second I just put the 3rd in. Now keep in mind this is the main tv in my house it pretty much runs from 3 when the kids get home till 3am for the past 6 years.
Great TV for the price and will last forever if maintained.

Summary: The WD-57733 is a great TV. Picture is great. Bulbs have seemed to last longer than what people say. I think they don't last on other people because they enclose the TV and not let it get air flow. Have only replaced the bulb twice since 2007.
Summary: WD-77534 Mitsubishi TV is junk! We have owned ours for 4 years and have already replaced the bulb twice and now the DMD, digital mirror device, has gone out...we have a large constellation on our screen. Word has it that the mirrors, over 2000 of them, have started freezing, thus the white dots.
Summary: This tv has a great picture quality and the sound is not the greatest but it's ok, now... in 4 years of use I'm going on my 4th lamp. The 1st was $109.00, second was $89.00, and the one I'm about to buy is $59.00. I think I'm getting rid of it and getting an LCD or LED to replace it...
Summary: as most of your were i was thrilled with my tv purchase. in 4 years i am on my 4th bulb. but just wait until you start getting the white spots all over your screen, they grow at a rate of 2-3 MORE every couple of days. this is from the color wheel going bad. and how 'bout around a grand to fix that.
Summary: The picture is great, but we've spent hundreds of dollars on replacement lamplights because they keep going out every few months. It's getting expensive to keep this tv and honestly, the hassle is more than a little annoying. I wish we'd read reviews and bought a different (better!
Summary: Ok, so ask the salesman about your warranty on this tv set. I bought mine in September 2008 for $1199 plus $375 for the 5 year warranty (which I found out the hard way does NOT cover bulb replacement). The blew out in 15 months, which I guess is common within 1.5 to 2 years.
Summary: I bought this TV off Amazon over the summer to replace a Sony KDS-60A2000 that I had sold due to a move. I wanted to get the KDS-60A2020 to replace it but I had some concern about the weight/width for getting it into the family room of my new residence.
