My wife and I had been thinking about this set and can't decide. Have any of you had good luck with this set? The dealer is a nice guy and I know and trust him for over 20 years.He's is up front with me. He Tells me that the lamps are not running for the length of time JVC said they should be.. JVC said 1 1/2 to 2 years.. The dealer said they have been lasting 4 to 6 months. He does offer a 4year ext warranty * non JVC *on just the lamps for $125 and the lamps run $199 each with out warranty. The dealer thinks that the lamps are there first gen. and the the next lot will be much better. So does any one have this big honken TV? Maybe you can tell me how you like how long you had it and how it's working for you! How the lamp life is? Is there something better then JVC LCOS? Any info would be great! I am running a Toshiba 43" RP model *43 A10* now.What my wife and I are looking for is a bigger lighter better looking picture.The most bang for the buck with a great picture. I have cable right now so we would be getting HD through cable. If you need any other info to help us out just let me know. Oh the dealer will sell me the set for $2900 and give me $450 trade on my 43" so I'm looking at $2550 in the door. Ok we live on the 2 floor! That's why we want a lighter set. Ok I think that should cover it. Thanks!
