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.
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.
Summary: Mitsubishi WD-60638 60-Inch 1080p 3D-Ready DLP HDTV - This is my 5th purchase of a Mitsubishi dlp TV in the past 15 years. The TV depth when compared to an LCD on a stand is very similar. The LCD, LED or plasma gain the depth advantage when wall mounted. Picture quality is excellent in this TV as well as my previous purchases.
At this price, there is no better television to be had.

Summary: Excellent picture and contrast. The blacks are deep and the colors are vibrant. Lost one star on the review due to tinny speakers (expected) and lack of a vga or toslink plug. The television is MUCH lighter than I'd anticipated which is nice because since it is not wall mountable, I was concerned it would leave divots in my entertainment console. It's been sitting on the piece of furniture in question for about 4 months now without any indentions to speak of.
Summary: I purchased this HDTV as a present for our family for Christmas. I am finally breaking down because all of my friends have their HDTV's and this technology has been out for a while now and there are few bugs remaining. I saw that it was spectacularly priced on Thanksgiving Day. It took a little bit for delivery but, that is okay. I just wanted it here in one piece and functional. I turned it on and... WOW !!!!!!!! What a picture!!!
Summary: Shipping; I got this TV for an awesome price from Circuit City, through Amazon. Although shipping was included, Circuit City screwed it up. All I had was a tracking number and a probable ship date. No idea who was shipping it, I had to research myself. After it sat in a terminal for 5 days, I figured out who had it, and had to hear that I wad suppose to call them to deliver it, even though I was never informed who had it. . . .
Great value for 60" - if you're sitting in the right place

Summary: For $599 (including shipping and tax and help setting up) this was an unbelievable value. At a thousand bucks (which is the current price at this writing), not so much. The viewing angle is fairly critical - not too high, not too low and definitely not too far off vertical axis. Features are basic. But the picture is excellent and for basic big screen viewing, it's a good deal at the right price.
Summary: I have seen Mitsubishi TV's advertised for several years and finally decided it was time to upgrade my 32" Vizio (which I still have and is great but just too small now). I received this 60" model today and am pleasantly surprised. I was able to unpack the box and set it up by myself; it only weighs about 60 lbs. This TV is HUGE and doesn't take up much space. I live in a studio apartment and thought a 60" would be overwhelming; it isn't at all.
Summary: This is a very nice value for your money and the picture quality is gorgeous. The only little issue I have with is the audio output which does not match up to the overall outstanding features on this tv. I am impressed and love this tv.
