great TV for the price...do not skimp on bulbs or you will not be happy.
20 January 2014
Summary: This is a great tv with a great picture for the price. Recommend either Phillips or Osram bulbs. The cheap generic bulbs give poor light and uneven color. The generic bulbs last less than 2000 hours (figure 6 months to a year) while you can expect an Osram the oem bulb or the Phillips bulbs to last over 6000 hours ( about 3 years). I have 3 of these and am happy with all three. Just take care of them and you should be ha0py too.
Summary: I was leary about buying a big TV online, but have been very happy with this purchase. It is 4 years later and still working good. I did just buy a new lamp, B005F6O10Y and it fit perfect. I still have an even older 52 inch Mitsubishi rear projection. Same thing, replaced the lamp and it's still going. Too bad they are discontinuing the line.
Summary: I bought this TV two years ago. I use it under the average viewing amount, and my TV is covered in white and black dots. As of now, this TV isn't available, but if it comes back, beware. I looked online and this is a common issue. On the plus side, it's cheap for the size. Update May 9th, 2012: I contacted Mitsubishi, and they purchased a replacement part for me. I had to pay $200 in labor. I felt satisfied by this. TV has been fine for two months now.
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: My wife and I bought this TV in 2009. We have no complaint about it. The screen size is big- 73", that makes us feel like in a theater. The sound from the TV is already great. We do not really need to turn on our sound system to enjoy movies. 120 Hz refresh rate is good enough to see blu ray movie. It is crispy and all the move are captured easily.
Summary: UPDATE_ if you get this tv, I highly suggest buying a warranty!! We have already had to have someone come out twice and had the tv 2 years, the board went out, and the screen had to be replaced, was separating??, and now 3 years later our lamp is going out, and the tv shuts off by itself and flashes all the time. When calling mitsubishi, they do not offer any help at all!!! I am SOO thankful we bought the extended squaretrade warranty!!
Summary: Love it, love it, love it. I replaced my 57" Hitachi DLP 720p/1080i, older large box model. The picture is absolutely beautiful. I was hoping for much improved graphics and I got it; ever so often I see some pixelization on the HD channels and it is my cable service resolution, not the tv. I play blu-rays and HD DVD's and the picture is astounding. I played with the advanced picture setup to get the setup right.
There are Cheaper TV's with Better Picture and Dont Require Regular Maintenance IE Buying Lamps (added cost)

Summary: I have owned this TV for 1 year and 7 months(purchase date Dec 6 2009). The lamp blew out today July 20th 2011. The warranty last for one year. when I called the company they said that I needed to purchase a replacement lamp at the cost of $99 dollars plus Shipping and Handling. I asked if that lamp had a warranty after I pay $99 dollars the tech person told me yes but only 90days(3 Months).
Summary: I couldn't be happier with delivery of my new 73' Mitsubishi DLP television that I recently purchased through Amazon. The television is simply fantastic. The picture is so clear and sharp. I really can't describe it to you. You'll just have to see it for yourself. This is the second time I bought a Mitsubishi DLP through Amazon. The first set was a 60' DLP. I gave that set to my mother, so I could justify buying an even larger one. Why did I buy my firt set from Amazon?
