Well the cons are size and wieght. Are they a big box, yes. Are they heavy, the one you linked is 178pounds.
Do they last a long time, YES.
Do you have to run the converengce program once a month, yes.
At 15 hours a day thats 5400 hours a year, so you could be replacing a lamp 1~2 times a year at $200~300 a pop. Ouch!!!
The new Plasmas are rated at 60,000 hours would be the other option.
Here is a link, one of the post is by the sears tv guy. click on his profile and send him an e-mail and ask him about this set. John
I read something that confuses me even more.
I do not think I can afford plasma or the upkeep of DLP as our TV is on about 15 hrs a day most every day.
And I have room for a CRT so I thought that would work for me as I just want a better picture and not the latest and greatest.
I was ready to order this and then several threads on the cons of CRT.
Will a TV such as this cause me no regrets.
Aside from a better picture.. I want to be able to hook a computer for photo viewing.
As of now I have no HDTV or reception but will get either Adelphia or dish HDTV.
