I wanted to go back and report on the eventual demise of a TV that I had posted on the review page in 2004. It was under another forum name that I had I lost access to because I forgot the PW and didn't have access to the old email address. Anyway, I think with the recent introduction of LCD and LED TVs and other new HD technology that it may be useful to leave threads open so forum members can report back how long that model lasted for them. When I got my 2008 Mitsubishi repaired in 2009, the man who serviced my set, and owns the local TV repair shop said that these new technology sets last about 5-7 years, much short than CRT TVs. Instead of anecdotal remarks like that, it would be nice to see some actual posts and encourage those that have to eventually replace their sets to post it in the original review thread. This data isn't going to show up in repair data because the cost of these new sets to repair along with the inavailability of parts due to the rapid change in models means that sets are getting replaced, vs repaired for the most part.
