Can't make up my mind

Been looking for a big screen for a couple of weeks now and settled on mitsubishi because of their financing offer. I have done most of my research on dlp's and had pretty much decided on the 62725. However, twice now I have seen it in stores displayed next to the 62527 LCD set and I really like the picture better--seems alot brighter. Does anyone out there have experience with the mits 62527 or an opinion that will help me make my final decision?

My concern is with these being Mits first release of rear proj. LCD's and issues such as the screen/colors fading.

Also, is the extended warranty worth the $$ ?-- Fry's= 299.00/3yrs (if i remember correctly)

Go with the JVC D-ILA or the Toshiba DLP both have the brightness and best PQ on the market I guarantee

It sounds as though you know what you like. I say get the one you like better.

Just be careful about making a choice based purely on brightness. And keep in mind that the viewing environment at the store is unlikely to be anything like yours at home.

I would suggest you look throught the different preset picture settings on both TVs and see if one or the other is consistantly better. When doing so, watch out for "vibrant" or "daytime" as these are generally considered torch modes that serve only to make the TV as bright as possible for showroom purposes.

Very good advice!

When comparing TVs anyone should adjust BOTH sets to the best they can get it so you are not looking at what SOMEONE else before you likes on that set. It also keeps the store honest if they want to make one look better to clear inventory. Of course if the store messes with the actual signal (intentionally make it a poor signal) you have to look at that separately and ask the store why.

I totally agree that you have to go by what looks best to YOU eyes! What we say might just give you direction on which to look at, and what to look for in a TV.

Good luck!

my main concern for now (besides quality and reliability) is which set would do better with SD channels. I have DirecTV which apparently uses an analog source and I may not upgrade to HD for awhile, so which would give me the best PQ for "just plain ole watchin tv" :confused:
