Can anyone rate the toshiba 52HM95, DLP?

by johnhunter44 / February 2, 2006 12:00 PM PST

Has toshiba corrected some of the past problems in this unit? I saw this one at an HHgregg and am deciding between the Toshiba plasma 42" 42HP95 or this 52" DLP. I do like a larger screen, but worry about the breakdowns these RP tv's have.

its a great tv

the older toshiba projo's had really bad power panels in the back and always broke. we've had 3 of these tv's on display for quite a while, and none of them needed to be serviced. you do need to replace the lightbulb every few years....just becareful with it. the tv is VERY bright. whites are white, blacks are black. turn the contrast down when you get it home...and the tv will last a lot longer.

second downside about the dlp.......if you dont have the matching tv stand....the tv doesnt look too hot. the speakers stick out WAY too much in my opinion...but its just taste.

the plasma is heavy as hell, but is great too.
if viewing angle is a concern...go with a plasma. if size is a concern, go with a dlp. if both is a concern...then go with the plasma ;p

Bought mine new 1/27/06. Great picture. Pleased until lamp ruptured on 3/14/06. I read where this is common but that Toshiba had bad batch of lamps from supplier and that they've changed and the problem is now corrected. If so, great TV. Better picture than many plasma and much less expensive. If lamp issue isn't corrected, though, avoid it. I won't know till they come out tomorrow to replace it and then gauge it's life.

I bought this unit and it is unbelievable! My bulb did go out after a couple of months but they took care of it right away. Other than that, it is flawless. The picture is unbelievable. Especially when I got a new DVD with an HDMI output. I highly recommend that unit.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
