Summary: Purchased this TV in 2011 and had to buy a new bulb for it in 2013. I now have to buy another bulb for it because that bulb stopped working.Televisions, appliances, stereos, cameras used to last 10 or at least 6 years before you had any problems with them. NOT NOW! It used to be a certainty that Japanese products were durable and of the highest quality but it looks like they have followed the Chinese and U.S.in pushing out garbage junkie products to consumers.
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.
Great TV if you can get someone to fix the remote problem.

Summary: This tv was a little bit of a surprise because I somehow missed the "PROJECTION" spec. So by the time I realized it was 16" deep it was already sitting in my living room. With that aside, has a great picture and sound quality is decent.Only has 2 component inputs which have to be shared with composites. The remote control has been an issue, although I've found that it is a problem inside the television.
Summary: For the price, this TV is a great deal! The Sound quality is good even without surround sound. Plenty of inputs (3 HDMI). Easy set up. My only Con is the picture quality...it's not the greatest even with a High Def Box, but for the money - I can't complain.
