I'm in the market for a 50-65in TV and the Mitsubishi WD-62525 caught my eye. A little background first, my uncle used to own a hifi store and always recommended either Sony or Mitsubishi displays, thus I am a tad biased. However, it has been years since he closed his store, so that may have changed since then. My price range is between $3000-$4000, though I can go a little bit higher and will do so for added quality. The location where the TV will go is the alcove shown in the following URL: Alcove The dimensions of that space are approximately 60"x70"x40" (height up to where the ceiling slants, width, depth). With that being said I have several questions. 1. I have read that DLP TVs have a lamp assembly that burns out every ~5000-6000 hours. As the lamp degrades over time does the image get noticeably less bright? Also is the time range for replacement accurate? And lastly is it difficult to replace the lamps? 2. From the picture above, I would like to place the TV back in that alcove. It will not fit on a stand, and fit in that alcove. Are there any problems with having the TV sitting directly on the floor, aside from viewing angle? 3. Do DLP TVs suffer easily from burnin? I play probably more than my fair share of video games as well as frequenting TV channels such as ESPNNews which has a bottom ticker. If burnin occurs, is it possible to order a replacement screen and is it possible to replace the screen on one's own? If so, how much do screens generally cost? 4. Lastly, any impressions good and bad of any of the Mitsubishi lines of DLP TVs?
