I bought a projection TV from HH gregg just recently. The ONLY drawback to a projection tv is that the light bulbs can burn out (after about 8000 hours use) and need to be replaced for abou $250 each. However, I purchased the 5 year warranty at HH Gregg, for $200, which includes replacement of bulbs for up to 5 years, however many are needed. If this tv will be on alot, you may want to consider adding on the guarantee. I personally liked the picture of a projection TV better than LCDs and Plasma. It works alot better when watching faster moving pictures, like sports. (The only way to get an LCD NOT to show blurry is by having a really fast refresh rate, which you can only get on the top of the line TVs over $2500. If you are looking for a large screen, projection is your best bet. (Just make sure that BB covers light bulb replacement in their guarantee if you plan on using the tv alot.) The average projection bulb will last for 5 years, if the TV is used for 4 hours per day. 8 hours of daily watching brings that down to 2.5 years. But for that size screen, even if you had to buy a bulb, you still can't beat the price.

Thank you!!! Especially for the projection info. I know nothing about the differences betw. LCD, Plasma, Dlp etc!!! Its for our lower level and want the biggest screen for the best price. I dont see alot of chatter about this size...think I need to line up before midnite?

Where did you see this TV for the price of $1499? I don't see it advertised in the flyer :confused:

Thanks

At the bottom of page 8/top of page 9. The page is split.

But OMG I just bought the same model on Amazon.com for

$1723 no tax no shipping. PLUS they added a gift with purchase,

a $400 stand. The stand doesnt have the greatest reviews but I'll

take it!!! If I lugged this set home, I prob.wouldnt have anything to

set it on. Im guarateed to get the tv. no crowds and no freezing!!

And I can concentrate on other things. All for just $134 extra.

I'm happy!!:woot2: Thanks Stealth!!

I own a 61" Samsung DLP, it is awesome and I shopped around a lot before purchasing, actually looking at the TV's and their picture. The Mitsubishi was sitting next to the Samsung on the floor at Bestbuy and the Samsung had better, brighter colors due to a much better contrast ratio and Samsung proprietary technology.

Thanks!

 

I might just do that! The free stand is worth at least a hundred bucks to me, and not having to try to deal with such a large box on BF... might free me up to snap up a laptop somewhere, too. (Plus my truck is broken down right now... AND I just happen to have a few bux in Amazon gift certificates hanging around!)

 

I'm starting to do a little happy dance. :cheesy:

OK, here's a silly question -- does this TV have the reflective see-every-light-bulb-that's-on-in-the-house screen, or the matte finish that hides reflections?

 

I suppose I should try to find a brick-and-mortar place to see this before I buy it. I wonder if BB has them on display?

I went and checked this puppy out at BestBuy today...

It is Beautious!!!!!!! I think only plasmas have that shiny

reflective screen. THe guy did tell me though that because

this was a BF 2 day sale item, I could purchase it now, price adj.

during the two days plus get 10% of the difference...I have to

keep telling myself that even though I'm putting out more money

I am getting a stand and the convenience of delivery. :g_shrug:

When I went to check out this TV at BB yesterday, after the salesguy

and I both came clean that we both knew it would be on sale BF, he

said that since its a 2 day sale, I could purchase it now and get an

adjustment that weekend and they'd also refund 10% of the difference.

So in the end youd be getting the sales tax back.
