Summary: I have been using this TV daily for the past 5 years and it is still running strong. Picture quality could be better. It is now beginning to overheat a bit, but that's to be expected with DLP tvs. My family and I love the TV!
Summary: Got this about 2 years ago and it's still running strong. As I read in other reviews, it's definitly better if you attach an external speaker system to it (I use a KLH, 2 thin side speakers and a sub underneath the TV), but the sound on it's own is pretty good... you just cant turn it up too high or it wont sound good. Again, none of this matters when you use external speakers--the quality is great and pretty darn durable.
Summary: Easy to hook up using an HDMI cable. The picture is good if viewed mostly straight on so will likely want to buy a stand for it. The remote control is easy to operate. It's pretty thick and bulky so it is not suitable for wall mounting, so if you want something to mount on the wall this won't work. A very weak part of the design is that the lamp is only rated for 6,000 hours. My lamp failed after only 16 months.
Excerpt: I was surprised at the cost of this excellent quality TV. I had heard that the picture of DLP TVs are not as good as the quality of the LCD and Plasma TVs. While I would agree they are not as sharp, I almost prefer the picture because it is a bit more smooth and appears to be more like an actual movie screen. While it may not perform as well as a computer monitor due to this, for the purpose I purchased it (television and movies), it performs admirably.
Excerpt: First off I want to start off by saying that I got a great deal on this tv. I paid 600 shipped and then another 250 for the 3d Kit. So for $850.00...I got an amazing 60" 3d TV. The picture quality on this is amazing. It is not that heavy and I actually thought the shell was going to be a bit bigger and bulkier. We moved our 47" to our bedroom and put this in the living / family room. We were not disappointed. It was easy to sync with my Comcast remote.
Excerpt: Bought this TV at a B&M Frys during Black Friday. I paid about $700 for it in 2009. More than a year later, it still works like brand new. For the money I paid at the time, I felt that this was a great value purchase that maximized the screen size, while sacrificing very little quality. For the same amount, I could have purchased an 47" LCD TV. Because my family room had a built-in media niche, I did not have to pay a premium for a slimmer TV.
Excerpt: I too found this television threw the SlickDeals forums ..It was $599 with free shipping from Circuitcity.com on Thanksgiving Day/Black Friday 2010. The television arrived via truck within a week. Was very well packaged and easy to set up. My husband and I carried the television to our family room. At 90 lbs it was a breeze. Once set up we noticed it had a great picture and great sound...
Excerpt: I purchased this tv through a deal I saw on the SD forums for $599 which included free shipping and no tax! I received the tv in a very timely manner and in perfect condition. As soon as I went to set it up, I immediately realized while not a true flat screen, it was extremely small in width and light as a feather. Upon turning on the tv and running through the set up, I decided to try out the HDTV channels my cable service provides.
Wow!!! What a Greta Picture and Fantastic Price from Amazon

Summary: We had purchased the 82" version of this Mitsubishi DLP tv two years ago from Costco. Unfortunately, Costco no longer carries this brand or similar models. My older Hitachi 55' TV has been steadily declining (bought in 2003) so I've ben looking around to purchase another Mitsubishi DLP unit. Well, just last weekend I saw Amazon had one for an amazing price of $ 550.00, and jumped on it. Iy was delivered today via private express.
