Summary: I have the 65" and am starting into my 5th year. I have replaced the bulb 8 months ago as it seemed to began to get darker. about a year ago I thought I had scratches across the screen and thought it was caused by wiping the screen with some grit on the rag. Started to investigate recently and noticed I could not see any scratches on the surface. There are large circular plates on the the two sides and took them off to investigate. There were spider webs inside!!
Summary: I bought my WD-82742-82 in late 2011 or early 2012 for 1600.00, new, on Amazon. I have moved a few times with it. It is not the most durable construction but it survived 1900 milies in the back of a uhaul and still works like a champ. I have had none of the issues anyone has complained about. Most sound like they are looking for something to complain about and are never satisfied with anything. Yes, it takes a couple of extra seconds to display a picture when turned on.

Summary: While searching for her new TV, I had to consider space and price. I felt that a 32" TV would have been too small and since I couldn't find any suitable options in the 35-37" range I started looking at the 40" TVs. #cheap Unfortunately, these were out of her budget probably due to their "smart" options - which she will never use and their 120Hz refresh rates. Also, I needed to keep the overall width of the TV to 35".
Summary: I like RoyalWalter got my 92" at Aaron's. I looked at the Sharpe 80" 240HTZ; but for $2K less I got a significantly bigger screen. I got mine For $2900 stand, tax and delivery included! I knew when Mitsubishi announced they would stop making these sets, they would both drop in price and disappear quick, which they did. I checked out every TV 80" and bigger for my home theater room, including several front projectors. Not only is the picture fantastic, both 2D and 3D.
Summary: Ive always been looking for the next best thing for TV's in my home. Ive owned many different sizes and styles of TV.. I bought projectors and flat screens, LCD and then this monster. I actually went in to buy the 70" version and after seeing this and for the little amount more it was totally with it. What got me was I bought a 47" TV years ago and thought it was the best thing ever (720P)..
Very limitted support for audio out for surround sound.

Summary: With a tv this size you would expect an owner to automatically bypass the tv speakers in favor of a surround system. However, you an only use an Optical output if you want to do so. Even cheaper televisions have a standard rca audio plug output for audio ... Not this one though.
Summary: I purchased the 82742 from Paul's TV and I am astonished by the TV and Paul's service. I had only seen the TV at HHGregg and the picture was not great. A friend purchased one of the Mitsubishi DLPs last year and raved about the picture, but he is in another state and I never saw the TV. I decided to take my friend and the Paul's TV rep at their word and they did not steer me wrong. Out of the box the picture was amazing.
