Yes a front display at a 70 to 75" on a laser format at a 20k or more life expectancy will be out of this world. --Please make it for me--.

I also like that HDI is LCoS based instead of DLP.

I'm curious how good the geometry is going to be with a 4"-6" cabinet depth - that seems pretty shallow for such a large screen and has been one of the ongoing problems with DLP RPTV's.

Already on the official website:

http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/product/L75A91

-Too bulky: The detailed specs mention 19.7 " !!
-I think it needs a "3D Kit" to work in 3D. Another 300 bucks.
-6K is not cheap. The big Mitsus only sell because they are big and cheap.

I'm convinced that flat is beaultiful, would never buy a monster like this .

I was so happy without HDR...

Eh, no. Your information is incorrect. That's from the shipping dimensions for the CARTON. The depth of the L75-A91 is just 15" -- and that's just the base. The cabinet body is only 12.7" deep, which is less than most 65" plasmas or LCDs when on their stands. You don't need the 3D kit, just a pair of DLP Link Active Shutter Glasses, as long as your Blu-ray player can output in the checkerboard format used by Mitsubishi in all their DLP models. Panasonic has two such models, and more are coming. There has been for quite some time a thread for owners (and would-be owners) of this new model, which you can access here. If you do a search of my user name you will find the various spec sheets and technical material that I've linked to in that thread. You may also be interested to know there is a Power Buy for the L75-A91 going on right now (see link in my signature, below). No need to spend $6K!

Well, thankfully, I wasn't trying to sell you one...

I have one unit of the L65-A90 remaining, at the close-out price of $3,499.95 (plus shipping), with no sales tax if you are located outside of Georgia. It is a brand new, factory-sealed unit and carries the full factory warranty. That's half the list price on the new model, by the way.

Well, anyone who has followed this thread at all would never in a million years have thought you would buy one of these!!!

Yes, thin is cool, and in many applications its important - I own at 4" thick plasma, and I'm sure many would consider that too deep today. On the other hand, my 125" screen in my HT is only about 2" deep, and it doesn't matter! The front of my speakers are about 2 feet from the wall, so the screen could actually be 2 feet deep without any esthetics problems. Surely a 12.7 inch deep TV has lots of places where the depth wouldn't matter.

If it's anything like the Samsung slim TV's it will be a headache, these are NEVER 100% right. Geometry is electronically corrected on the new Mits DLP's, not sure what they will do for the Laser.

It's more like 12" plus, if that's any consolation...

Yes, the depth of the cabinet is 12.7", and geometry has been handled quite well.

Keep in mind that you were responding to an older post that was responding to speculative numbers regarding cabinet depth. Given what we all know about geometry issues with the DLP sets, I was just wondering "out loud" how they would make it work if they went with such a shallow depth. Fortunately, the speculation turned out to be false.

Right - I for one am very happy that the rumor of a 4" cabinet depth turned out to be wrong.

Geometry is excellent on the LaserVue, per the Sound & Vision review located here (see page 3, under "Test Bench").

That is all well and fine for a year and a half review on the 65" display, but as you have pointed out to us, the L75-A91 is nearly completely re-designed.

I love your informative posts, and would have certainly purchased one from you (catching up after six months unemployed), but can you stop trying to point out how great the new model is, using reviews and specifications from an older model? It just isn't quite a fair comparison - having been re-designed with a slimmer cabinet and all.

Point well taken. All I was trying to say is that Mitsubishi had done a good job in this department on the predecessor model. I don't think they would take a step backward in performance with the new model -- slimmer cabinet or not. Obviously, the measurements will speak for themselves once a professional review on the new model is available.

Sound & Vision is known for their comprehensive reviews. There is one for the L65-A90 located here.
