so Frye's warranty is still 500 after all these years. that was the same price i paid for my WD-52725 tv i got from them. I only used it once and that was the bulb replacement last year. So i lost, what, 300 dollars on it? Not worth it entirely in my opinion. i'll get the extended warranty from Mitsubishi if it is less. i forgot to call them again on that while at work Friday.
I looked the 73" and 65" 737 series while at Frye's and saw no bleeding in the letterbox bars which made me happy. The only thing i didn't care for was the haze/fuzzy screen coating they have which is the same as what Samsung dlp's have on their screens. when you see white you see the coating. look at an lcd or plasma and you don't see it. even my 52" looks clear without the haze coating effect. Not sure if that makes sense or not. Other than that and the lifelike pic quality i see in lcd's that is missing in the mitsu's, i like the tv's. the price is right. my friend said go for the 73" when i told him about it. THe salesguy said the diamond models are better in PQ and has the 120 refresh rate. I'm sure the 737's have 120 also. not sure though. i picked up a 63" stand at BB so i'd be ready for a 73" monster. Oh and the remotes are crap. but that isn't anything new. dinky plastic thing.
Now to sell my current tv and a few oddball things to help pay for the new one. it'll just barely fit in my living room between my two tower speakers. The price was the same as tigerdirect even though the price wasn't out next to the tv the guy checked for me.
