I am considering picking up the HD33 in August, but I have a few concerns I'm hoping someone who owns one can put to rest. First off, I have read a lot of this thread, and heard some anecdotal stuff, either way, but nothing super specific. I apologize if I'm re-asking stuff thats already been asked.
-First, is there any reason to hold off for new models? Do we think a new one will come out this year?
-How well does this work out as a dedicated screen? My plasma seems to have died, and this is what I want to get to replace it. We'd be using this PJ in our living room, and for dedicated TV, games, and Movie use. This isn't just an event screen. Its a daily driver.
-That said, will replacing lamps become a constant thing? I'd love to hear feedback from anyone who is using their HD33 as a dedicated TV.
Thats all, I am well aware of all the other things about this PJ. Its my top choice, but I want a little reassurance before pulling the trigger. Thanks guys...
