Yeah, totally agree. I think Mitsubishi would definitely be in the crosshairs.
I don't really get what they're even trying to do... what is their reason for being in the TV market anymore? What's their identity?
Let's see... they're one of two companies still making DLP, which is a dying, niche TV tech these days. Their LCDs don't seem to have an identity or advantage of any kind- Sammy and Sony are the premium makes, Sharp and Toshiba are the "we're almost as good as premium, but cheaper" makes, and then you have the budget brands. Where does Mits fit in?
Seems like they charge the premium prices like Sammy and Sony, but aren't seen as being as good. Viewing them in stores, I've never been particularly floored... good sets, but not good for the money they're asking.
Guess LaserVue was their way out, and with it being delayed and having manufacturing problems... whoops. Also- a $7,000 set being intro'd during a major worldwide economic downturn? Wow, awesome timing..
