Im looking at 2 used but not for very long Samsung DLP TV's

One is a HLR5064WX
the other is HLP5063WX/XAC

What is the difference and which is better quality?

Also what are the specs??

I looked and couldn't find any details.

Thanks,

Kevin

HLR-4 to 5 years old, in rear projection terms, very old and ready to blow a very expensive part.

HLP-6 to 7 years old, do not buy under any circumstance, don't even take a free one into your home. Worse than a stray raccoon.

They are both 50". They would have been somewhat similar when they were new. Maybe the HLR has more or any HDMI, HLP, maybe no HDMI.

All kidding aside. I do not recommend buying any used rear projection tv. After the first 2 years, they become a money pit of repairs, most of which don't fix them.

I agree and second the recommendation to NOT purchase either of these...
