On Black Friday, I saw the WD-60638 television for sale from Dell.com for $599 with free shipping, and I bought it, after calling another friend to ask if he thought it was a good deal. However, when I went to work and mentioned my purchase to people, I got a lot of flak for my decision - everyone is telling me DLPs burn out really quickly and I'll be regretting my purchase soon. I'm not really sure to believe, though, since my dad's had a Mitsubishi DLP in great working condition for years and years now with absolutely no issues. I know DLP is an older technology and all, but it's still a 1080p 120 HZ TV claiming 3D Ready status on the box, so this particular unit can't be that old - but, I haven't been in the loop on televisions for awhile, so I'd like some second opinions. Thanks.
