Used DLP tvs are a $500 maximum value. And in my personal opinion, with all the repair problems and large expense to fix them (if you can even find the parts anymore), they are more accurately valued at worthless.

Don't buy it. Find an LCD or plasma tv in your price range and get that instead. I prefer Samsung LCDs.

Read thru this forum with DLP disaster stories. I have one, so it's not like I'm a DLP basher or anything, it is just that they are a failed technology which should not be purchased anymore due to availablity of much better technology, LCD, for very good prices now.

And if you really want only a DLP, check the link for a new one with warranty, almost the same price you show for a three year old tv.

Stand included?

There are no customer reviews @ Amazon
DLP is hardly failed technology. Ask anyone with a front projector.

Just because most consumers are convinced to purchase lower quality displays for external aesthetic reasons doesn't mean there is anything wrong with DLP. DLP still maintains several advantages, not the least of which are excellent picture quality and high ratio of screen size to cost.

And if you're going flat and you really care about picture quality, plasma is STILL the way to go - even all these years later.

I got the 62HM196 in Jan 2007 for $1699. $1000 seems like an OK price assuming it is in proper working condition.

$500 seems a bit low for a TV of that size and quality. I'd say $750 would be a pretty great deal - again - assuming there is nothing wrong with it.
