Repair or Replace

ldj44July 21, 2007

55 inch Philips rear projection HDTV, about four years old. Moving it around a tight corner, took the back off, and (ooops!) bent the mirror. Bent it back but while it works alignment is off; bottom line tickers go downhill. To replace the mirror will cost about $330. Is this worth the cost when I can get a 42 inch LCD for under $1000 as a replacement? Thanks in advance for any opinions.

Well, 42" is not 55". Would you miss the extra foot of viewing? Are you happy with the Philips otherwise?
