The "cons" listed in the other review are mostly not true cons of the TV. The only real con I see is the "wobulation" con. It not being thin is inherent with a DLP and if you are buying one it is because you have the space. The no info con is not a problem of the TV just that it is a newer series to the market. It has now been reviewed by CNET and there is much more info out now. It is somewhat of a rebranding of the 737 series but it has been made lighter and other small adjustments. The 737 series was new to 2008 so not as outdated as he makes it out. Although it is hard to find that isn't a con to the TV, there are retailers online that sell it including tigerdirect, amazon, 6ave and others. In store at Costco, Frys, and others. Easier to find then LCD's or plasmas at this size. Plus getting one 10" smaller in LCD or Plasma will be twice the Price or more.

 

Bottom line, if you have the floor space (nearly 18" at base) this is a much cheaper option then LCD & Plasma.  How else will you get 73" of screen realestate?
