Great purchase. Just replaced lamp after almost 4 years of heavy use.
21 April 2014
Summary: Very pleased with my purchase. Four years of heavy use. Just replaced lamp for the first time. Still sharp as ever. Was getting a little dim and a few other issues before the lamp burnt out but now I know why. Lamp was a breeze to replace. Have had no issues since I changed lamp.
Summary: I bought this November 2009, and still haven't needed to replace the bulb. Granted, I changed the picture settings from the default "Brilliant" to "Natural" and turned down the brightness some, because it looked too intense before. I heard that default picture settings tend to be that way to jump out at you in brightly lit stores, but that more toned down settings look better at home.
Summary: I've had this less than a year and nothing but problems. The size/price are great but the reliability is awful. Mitsubishi fixed it once under warranty but it took countless calls, two visits by a repairman and weeks of waiting. The picture is good and I love the size but I will never buy a Mitsubishi or rear projection TV again. Buy a smaller TV or spend more on a Vizio or something.
Summary: Bought this through amazon from comp usa - Comes on a semi for delivery, which he had to park about a 1/4 mile away and dolly it to my house. was packed well no problems fired right up. Picture seems to improve over a few days, either it breaks in or your eyes adjust to it. I spent a good month researching and looking at 100's of TV's. This was the most I could get for the money, looks as good as anything else out there.
Summary: For the price I could not want anything more - I searched and searched when looking for a new larger tv, after hours and hours I decided on this one. 6 months later I'm still very satisfied - pictures are crystal clear with beautiful colors. Couldn't ask for more.
Summary: Bought this tv a month ago.Set-up was the easiest I have ever done.Only problem I had was hooking up the dish network box.This was no fault of the TV. It was a BAD HDMI PORT on the dishnet box (From what i could find out this is a common problem with dishnet hd boxes).Picture is Outstanding, I was in a couple of places today looking to upgrade my av receiver and noticed that none of the tvs in these stores had as good a picture.Not even smaller models.If you don't want...
Summary: Here's how I found the problem; While switching from my cable connection to my PS3, the TV when black as if the signal was not found. Then I noticed the green power indicator light start to blink. Now at this point you have two options, wait for the light to blink about 20 times and wait for the TV to turn off or just hold the power button for a few seconds and the TV will do a force shutdown.
Summary: look up blinking green light of death, it is very common with these TV's. Parts are unavailable from Mitsubishi because everything is on backorder. Whether they actually honor warranty or not remains to be seen for me... waiting over a week now with no working TV and only the blinking green light.
Summary: Consumers be aware of the nature of the DLP bulb. Eventually it will burn out like bulbs do. Can the tv owner replace it or is a tech required? Otherwise it is an impressive technology that shares the color wheel concept used in the original 1930 era tvs.
Summary: I love this TV. I purchased it over a year ago and it is fabulous. I was a little leery of purchasing a TV through the internet but I would do it again. My son always asks if it causes eye cancer because the screen is so large. It has a beautiful picture. If I had to complain about anything on it, it would be the sound but hey if you are going to own a TV this size with a Media Center PC attached, you really should have a surround sound system. That is next on my list!
