Hello,DON'T BUY A JVC HD-61Z456
. I know I am late posting this message, but if I can prevent someone from making the same mistake I did, then it is worth my time to post this. This TV has been a pain in the neck since it was purchased. First of all, after spending several thousand dollars on the stupid thing, we have to purchase a bulb every 6 months. The TV repair man said it needed to be replaced every year, but we have found if we wait that long, we will have a hard time seeing the screen for 6 months. The screen was very dark and we could not make out any of the people on it. The bulbs cost $200 each. I know you can get them off the internet for a lot less, but I was told not to buy them, because it will mess up a major circuit somewhere in the TV. Even with a brand new bulb, it is still impossible to see the TV especially when it shows a darken area in the movie. Also, I am on a first name basis with the repair man. That is also a small fortune. The TV made a loud explosion, scared me and the dogs to death. The Repairman came and picked up the set, and told me that the bulb had exploded. The bill was $457.60! It still isn't fixed yet. It keeps turning off, and then you have to wait 5 minutes before turning it back on. Also the HDMI port doesn't work. If you have lots of money, and want one of these TV's, with a somewhat unclear picture, all the more power to you! There are a lot of TV's out there that don't cost an arm and a leg, and I highly recommend any one buy this one!
