Also I wonder if the new screen will make the viewing angle better so it can be a little higher without the lose of pic or brightness.

Width seems to be the esthectic furniture concern, but you also haveto consider the question of can you hit the sub 15" height that is appropriate for this size dispaly.

12-13" would be even better. I would not want to lean this bad boy forward without tipping restraints. Acutally I hope Mits has some lugs on the back for safety cables. The 82" wobbles enough as far as I am concerned. I would not want any young child moving around in a living room with the WD-92840 without some safety equipment to hold this beast vertical.

Just another blank signature.

Waltstv,

Do you have specs? Curious how wide and tall that stand is. I think it will be the one to get. Thanks. Their site did not list anything.

Thanks for the heads up. I was thinking about picking up the Valencia 79 with an enclosed back panel, but may go with this one instead due to the lower price. Looks like the depth should be sufficient as the base of the TV is 20.5" D (while the rest of the TV is 22.6" D).

Thanks, couldn't find this earlier. Looks like a great fit. A bit high but should be ok.

Just a little opinion on stand height from my personal experience.
For the 82" I originally had it on a 21" high stand, and with a
viewing distance of about 11 feet I felt it was just a little too high. I have since gone to a 16" high unit and this seems to be
about perfect for the 82" at 11 to 12 feet distance. Of course
each has their own views on this.

It should be fine. The height the tv sits on is only 13", the total height including the backlight on the back of the stand is 22", but that will be behind the tv.

Overall approx. size: 22"h x 79"w x 25"d.
Top surface 13"h.

If you don't have too many components to fit in the stand, it should work pretty well.

Either that makes no sense or I'm missing something. Where do you get 13"? The stand is 21" tall. And that is definitely too high for the 92"

He must be referring to the Valencia 79 stand which has those exact dimensions.

Ya he quoted a reply on the other stand. No way I'd buy the Valencia, way too non functional, especially at that price.

I don't know. Our 73" is on a 19" stand and it is about perfect. Our couches are kind of big and tall too. I know the 92 is a lot bigger overall but I think the 21" would be ok. 13" seems too low IMO, the TV would almost be on the floor.

If in fact the 92" presents the same horizontal viewing issue then 19" is too high.
I don't see how you figure that if 19" is perfect for a 73" that 21" will be okay for a 92"?

If 19" is perfect for your 73" then the 92" needs to be about 5" lower at 14" for your viewing height. Ya it will be close to the floor.

Uh...yah, I was looking at the Valencia stand. I don't know what the heck I was looking at this afternoon. I have to turn a bunch of settings off of IE at work otherwise I get errors everywhere, when I was reading Gruson's and yesrushdt's posts I did not see any screenshots in them at the time so I assumed they were talking about the Valencia. I see the screenshots now...Sorry about that, my bad.

The width would be just about perfect though, a slight over hang of a couple inches on each side.

The stand has a couple of bars on the bottom that have wheels and connect to the cross bars. It's tempting to take the bars off with the wheels as it would drop the stand at least a couple of inches, but I'm afraid I'd never be able to move it then to get behind it.

Other than the obvious height consideration and how much weight it can hold, stand selection is a very personal decision to come up with something that fits the budget, fits in with the decor, and can hold the other stuff you want it to hold. When someone posts a generic "what stand should I get?" question, it's very difficult to make a suggestion as stands can cost as little as $50 or so for something from a place like Ikea or as much as many thousands of dollars for a custom made stand.

Somewhere in the middle of the price range is the Salamander Synergy line which is available in a variety of heights (roughly 10", 20", 30", and 40" - a little higher depending on using leveling feet or casters), widths (1, 2, 3, or 4 wide at multiples of about 21"), and finish options (black, cherry, walnut, maple each with black or silver colored aluminum posts). The various finish options help these stands fit in with a variety of decors, but the basic design is the same across the board, so they aren't for everyone. Anyone in the market for a stand should at least take a look at these as there's a ton of flexibility.

And no, I don't sell these. I'm just happy with mine and feel they're worth a look before making a decision.

Also, don't forget to check for good deals on the stand you're looking to get on ebay, Craig's List, etc. before buying. If you happen to find what you want locally, you can sometimes get phenomenal deals on things that are difficult to ship.

I have a 73" on an 18" stand, and it's a tad too high from an optical perspective, though I've compensated somewhat by tilting the TV ever so slightly forward. There are other considerations, such as creating enough space below for components, and getting the TV high enough so there's nothing blocking your view (like things on the coffee table when you're slouched or even laying down). So there may be a reason why someone wants something higher, but from a pure optical perspective, 13-14" is probably about right (depending on eye height).

Yes, I understand for sure and took some measurements last night to confirm. The BDI stand will not work because there will be too much overhang on the sides and it is just as tall as the BCE82. The search continues for now.

See my post before. I used two of these (black-brown) from Ikea. $99 each. Putting two together the size is

Width: 94 1/2 "
Depth: 23 5/8 "

That should be good fit for the 92 inch. I did not use the casters. There is no visible gap when two are put together and they look like one whole piece. Just an idea for people looking for cheap stand.

Quoted from: http://www.bigpicturebigsound.com/Ey...2840-DLP.shtml

"Mitsubishi is using a new clear contrast screen on the 840 series and while that certainly has some advantages, it also has some drawbacks. The image on this DLP is very bright and black levels (at least on the 2D Blu-ray content that we looked at) were quite good. The screen, however, is fairly reflective and that might become an issue for users who can't control the ambient light levels in their home theater room. Under some rather poor show conditions (Mitsubishi was in a corner of the exhibit hall with rather large windows on one side bathing the set in sunlight...even with black drapes in front of them), we could see our own image from 12-15 feet away reflected in the set's screen."

What is a "clear contrast screen?" Does that mean you can see through it? Is it a lenticular screen or a diffusion screen like the Blue Ocean screen? Who makes the screen, DNP or Mitsubishi?

Please post links if you have resource information about the new screen.

PS This web page has some good pictures of the TV set up. It does look pretty big and slim as well.

I looked at the Lack as well, which is a great height for the 92, and if you realy need it higher you can leave the legs on. Only issue for me is there is not enough room for my center below it

Thank you for posting this. You just saved me a ton of time and aggravation.

In a similar vein, is selecting a stand height as simple as trying to get close to eye level with the center of the screen (not the whole TV)? Which would mean I only have to figure the couch and the stand. Or does distance play a role as well, and how many inches up and down would you adjust for each foot of distance? Will the curvature of the earth become a factor? :P

We've nicknamed my future TV "The Monolith."

With my 82" at a distance of 12 feet my stand is 16 inches high.
I think it is in the perfect "sight on" position. The 92" is, I believe
5 inches higher, which might make a stand in the 12" height range
a pretty nice viewing angle for that distance. Now of course the
height of your seating position may enter into the equation.......
but sometimes we can compute these things to death. There is
a lot of screen to view so your chances of perfection might not
be easily obtained.

Anyone going to see it in person at Paul's TV in LA, Orange, Ventura and San Diego county stores July 22?

If so can you take pictures & give your impressions of it first hand.

I'd be really interested in how the 2d & also the 3d picture looks.

Does anyone know if it gives full 1080p 3d for both eyes?

I'm seriously considering getting one.
