Summary: Expect to spend hundreds in blown bulbs - starting the first year. Expect to purchase a new TV in 3-4 years. Mine is 4 years old and has over a thousand bright white pixels. Looks like a constellation - better think again before you buy the DLP technology.
Summary: I was all ready to buy one of these when I came across this website of Mitsubishi complaints. Even though most had purchased their Mitsubishi TV over a year or more ago, read the identical problems they all shared. From overwhelming white dots to the early replacement of the $150 bulb not long after a purchase. [...
Summary: Google "Mitsubishi dlp white dots." There are literally 1000s of complaints of the same problem caused by defective DLP chips and Mitsubishi has done nothing to fix the problem, knowingly selling the defective sets. It will be a miracle if the set lasts 2 years before you start to get white and black dots all over the screen from stuck mirrors on the chip. The cost to repair can be as much as the sets now cost.
Summary: Bought this tv 2 yrs ago and white pixels started appearing, read the reviews on the web and many many people have the same problem, throwing it in the trash today. Do not buy this piece of junk!
WARNING ineffective service response from Mitsubishi
Lawrence C. Brooke, Amazon
9 August 2011
Summary: On Dec. 29 ordered Mitsubishi DLP from Amazon. It was delivered on 01/07/2011. July 4 2011, it died, refused to respond to power button or remote. July 5 2011, I contacted Mitsubishi customer service, explained problem, and was given the name & phone # of recommended service tech. Contacted service tech, I was asked about the problem, I explained, and was told it was the power supply. After a 2 week wait, it was installed to no advantage.
