    I've been presented with an opportunity to purchase a 55" Phillips LCOS television at around $760...is it worth it. The features on this model are very impressive however it has a service history. It has a new brain, mirror and light engine....anybody have an opinion on whether or not it's worth it?

    Let me know

    $760 sounds like a great deal. The service history is a risk but sounds like they've replaced everything that can cause major problems (except maybe the power supply). Even if you have to sink another $500 in it on down the road it's still a hell of a bargain. Does it come with any warranty?
