Noticed that HHGREGG will have it on sale for $799 on Black Friday.

Is it worth looking into?

The question is do you have Room? I'm not sure about what lighting element that mistu uses but They have made good Tvs in the past. 73" is A LOT if screen real estate for me. It also probably wont hang flat because it's a projection tv.

I might brave my local hhgregg to check it out.

The 73" will be about 18" deep, it is NOT a hang-on-the-wall TV. It is the most picture inch-per-dollar, but have a look at the picture quality. I own a Mits DLP, a 2004 52", and would get another. Go take a look, check viewing angles, the picture looks much better straight-on the at any off-angle. The refresh rate is supposed to be 2nd to none, much faster than any 120hz display. Also, if you like the picture, see what model it is. I know the higher up models, the Diamond Series, have a built in surround bar, it sounds awesome and has a subwoofer output on the back, very nice...

You will get a sharper picture from a LCD or LED TV but you wont be able to beat that price....

Have I answered all your questions today? Anything else I can help you with?

Eventually you'll have to change the bulbs in the DLP TV. I personally try to avoid buying things that have guaranteed future costs.

We are all one consciousness experiencing itself, life is but a dream in which we are the imaginations of ourselves....

My mailboxes are always full....

Replacement bulb is only about $35 now... As opposed to the $300 I paid in 2008 for the same thing...

Nah, just put a small shelf over the back of the TV, keeps them nachos warm...

I have a Mitsubishi 62in rear projection TV, just recently my bulb went out again. Cost 250 bucks for a new bulb at FRYs. God I hate this Fuggin TV.

Check Amazon next time. I have a Toshiba 52" and the last bulb I put in it was $50 from Amazon.
