"Best LCD TV we have seen for clarity, motion, and sound"5.0 starson by DeniB
Pros: Best Picture Quality, Clarity, and Focus even in sunlight that we have seen in the LCD TV Line. With the 16 speaker sound bar, a separate Surrond Sound System is not required. However, it will only enhance the quality and viewing pleasure even more.
Cons: So far no major ones that I have seen unless one considers the cost and the limited choices when connecting to the Internet, which is only to VUDU Movies at present. Maybe Mitsubishi will consider adding other choices to the next firmware update
Summary: The cost ranges from $2700.00 to $3100.00. We purchased ours from Barretts Home Theater Center in Naperville, Illinois and got a fantastic deal at $2640.00.
This is my 3rd Mitsubishi TV purchase from Barretts Home Theater, in Naperville and only needed their service once on each set we purchased. The first time was on a 21 inch CRT set purchased in 1983/84 time frame where they replaced the TV Tuner. I still have and use this TV set today. The second set, a 35 inch CRT Mitsubishi purchased in 1990, failed because the High Voltage Flyback Transformer arched itself to death in 1999. Unfortunitly, Mitsubishi never made a replacement flyback so Barretts could not repair this unit. I sold it for parts to a local TV reapir shop.
If you are looking for a great LCD TV, that is the best bang for your dollar, then this is the set you want. Home Goodz.com, is selling this same system, the LT52249, on-line for $2549.00 with free shipping but you need to set it up yourself. Barretts Home Theater store delivered the TV and set it up for a minimal fee that is well worth the additional cost.
An added bonus, which I highly reccommend, is that if anytning goes wrong, Barretts Service Department, is there to fix it for you. No need to contact Mitsubishi or your On-Line Retailer, where you purchased it from, for service.
If you want this TV, and I highly reccomend it, and do not mind ordering it on line, then Home Goodz is the place to purchase it from. However, it you want to purchase it from a reliable local dealer that will back it up with a great service department, then the Barretts Home Theater Store is the place you want to visit. I can assure you you will not be disappointed with your choice of stores, the sales professionals on staff, and their Service Department. A total worry and hassel free expierence awaits you.
