"I read the links, but I don't put too much faith in internet reviews, for the simple reason that most individuals will defend their purchase decisions, even if they bought a lemon (not saying the Panny is lemon mind you...). I should note that I don't have a Mitsubishi...."
As a proud owner of a mitsu 55805, and an internet review writer of said product, I am here to defend my purchase.
Ahem.. My TV is the bestest cause I bought it and it is cool.
Price - 2850 new, incl delivery from local mistu dealer.
Online Support and Tweakability - ***************.com. This site alone is reason enough to buy a mitsu. From this site Ive rec'd detail instructions on convergence, red push fix (in service mode), manual AND electronic focus. Im no ISF tech, but with all the mods Ive made, I know I saved a butt load. My local ISF guy wanted 200 additional for the focus work alone.
Compatibility with dtc 100 - 500 bucks plus rgb cable = superbowl in hi def. whoo hoo!
Amazing progressive dvd performance.- The video quality is awesome. Now my girlfriend would rather we stay home and watch movies instead of going out! From watching test patterns on VE, I know this set is displaying the maximum resolution from the dvd format. If mostly what you do is watch dvd's its silly to pay more for a tv.
Just ranting about my exorbitant purchases online, in a vain attempt to justify me having them. Somebody shoot me.
