For 6 years, I have had a 32" TV that has never given me problems. It's OK when watching DVDs, but of course, like everyone, I dream of that bigger screen size. I have a $1000 for expenses on new tv. Buying a 30" WS TV would be stupid for me since that's really no different than a 32" standard TV plus 1.33X1 is much smaller. I was thinking about a RPTV that would be in my price range: *SAMSUNG 47" with stand- $1047 *Magnavox 51"- $992 *Philips (HDTV tube TV) 34"- $999 *Philips 51"- $1194 The problem is- is that there several people having problems with projection tvs in the past. I have not seen one positive response from someone who has owned one for 3-4years. People complain about the convergence, the color being way off, the tv coming on with no picture (although there is sound). Other complaints are people having their tvs shutting off by itself. Are their big tvs out there that are (almost) indestructable like tube tvs? I would hate to blow $1000 on a projection tv that will only be good for 3 years or less. I stinks because I see this 47" projection tv at Sams Club that is absolutely beautiful, but I haven't seen any history that proves they have longterm reliability. The only projection tv that seems to have little to no complaints are the Hitachi tvs, but unfortunately, they are out my price range.
