I just got the 65837 with a manufacture date of 5/12/09....It was a replacement for the 65732. It was a pain in the butt, however I just got it today. I went through 2 optical engines and 3 lamps and had the thermal sensor replaced 4 times on the 65732. I had a 5 year warranty with Fry's Electronics. I called and spoke to Mitsubishi and then Fry's and between the 2 of them, I got the 65837.
The 65837 has: Glossy outside, blue light underneath screen, dark detailer, perfect tint, net command, usb, 4 HDMI's etc...
I have been trying to get my PS3 up and running for 2 hours. The screen keeps switching from blue to black...with no PS3 picture.
I have read the manual and messed with the remote ....but it's just brutal. It is so bad it's hard to explain. It's not finding the PS3.
Out of Box (un-calibrated):The picture seems to be what the 65732 was. I do NOT see a difference with "Smooth 120" and I think it's probably a marketing trick more than anything. This is just my impression and was hoping that the new 65837 would be so much better than the 65732. I honestly DON'T see a difference in HDTV channels....like I said...I am yet to get the PS3 / BLU RAY to work...so I can't compare that picture.
I am thankful to have a new TV after all the hassle with Fry's and Mitsubishi.
I was so excited to get this thing....but in all honesty...it's NOT that great.
If you've had rear projection DLP's from Mitsubishi in the past.....then you know what you're getting. Some love them, some not so much.
I think for the screen size to price ratio, they're pretty good.
Samsung is not making them anymore and Mitsubishi rep told me this is the last year for DLP for them too. (???)
...Now back to this horrible menu and remote and trying to get the PS3 set up....this "auto detection" is not so "automatic"
I think if it's your first DLP. You will love it. If you are getting a replacement from a past Mits DLP....it's not that different
