    WOW, 212W is that with +169w or is that to be added to that too. I guess 212w is not bad though but dam. That's more than my actual computer takes.

    212 watts is just fine

    The power of the lamp is already factored in the 212 watt power consumption. For a 5 foot TV 212 is right about where it should be. 212 is not a lot for a computer at all. :D Over 500 is a lot.

    After having so many lamps(3 in 2 years at $200 a pop) and an optical block($1800 a pop, this is when I scrapped the TV) die on my last DLP TV, no more crappy projection TVs. At this point DLP is just a way to say "we still used 10 year old technology that breaks all the time".

    But to run a computer on 1/2 a KW idle is pretty dam sad. Would like to the actual numbers when in use as they are probably max.

    As newtekie1 said all so lamps can be a massive draw back too.

    I would of checked more in to this one if i was looking for a new one. Sold out fast too.

    I had one in my cart at 3:01 AM, but the CCFL backlighting, 4.2 inch thickness, and mandatory external box thing broke the deal. The box in particular as it's a discontinued product as per LG's product page, so if it breaks 2 years down the road, I'm not guaranteed a replacement and knowing how people are, they'll likely be on eBay for $500 a pop.

    PS - It was sold out by 3:05.

    DLP (at least darkchip 2 with dark enhance) + LED lamp = best picture I've ever seen...

    And I have seen a lot in my short lifetime so far, roll around helping with home theatre and pro theatre installs on weekends and holidays and get to see the before and after of a pro calibration on all the different technologies.

    Whats wrong with CCFL lighting as long as it's done right ?. And maybe 4.2 inch think and external box helps it keep even cooler.

    My Toshiba (40") here stays nice and cool but the ASUS 20" gets frigging hot. It was reconmended to me to keep my TV 6inches of the wall for best cooling and could see that being issue with that one if you had to do the same but shit that tv is the shit lol.

    I would rather have all my ports on the TV where it's supposed to be, I'm not mounting it on a wall, it's going on a stand. As for the external box, it's a discontinued product and I want this TV to last me 5 or so years. I'm not guaranteed a replacement media box should the original go wrong. That TV isn't even true 120Hz, it's 60Hz mixed with some software interpolated crap called LG TruMotion. As for CCFL, LED's last longer (5x the half-life), run cooler, and are more power efficient.

    I was excited about that TV, but after doing some research, I decided to opt out at around 2:45. It was fun to watch how fast it went OOS though.

    Electronic are normally made for 10 years.. And for 120Hz don't care about, and for LEDs sure they last lots longer but i bet they make other parts so cheap later that lighting will not be a issue.

    And as for CCFL cooling it depends on your requirements like if the sun is going be hitting the screen as you will need it brighter. But like said mine runs cool and it's a CCFL they just need good circulation.

    Well my 5 year old panasonic 65 inch rear projection 1080I has been great. Not a damn thing wrong with it.I wouldn't invest big money in a TV, you know printed LED screens are comming.
