Since the A94 is just coming out, you'll have to wait nearly a year for the next model. The A94 is 75".

I remember reading it should be coming out this year, but nothing so far. I hope they haven't drop it because it sounded awesome.

The WD-92840 is shipping now and it's roughly the same price as the LaserVue. It is one gigantic television. It's a regular DLP and not a LaserVue, however.

This year's is a 75. Mits did bring out a 92 lamp based DLP this year.

I currently own the new Samsung UN65D8000 - it has Crosstalk, Uneven Screen Uniformity, Clouding, Poor Viewing Angles, on the plus side it is bright and offers an amazing picture.

I am looking to switch it for the L75A94 only if it has the same brightness of an LED screen (prefer bright picture for 3D viewing and Daytime Viewing) and picture quality (sharpness, colours, etc) and has none of the problems that the UN65D8000 has.

Pleas help me make this decision !

Primary uses for television are 2D and 3D gaming / blu ray movies through game consoles and bluray players and 2D / 3D gaming / bluray movies through PC.

Should I stick with my current television or get the L75A94?

You might ask that in the A94 thread. FWIW, the A91 calibrates to about 20-22 fL which is a plenty of light in a dark room but would not work well in a bright environment.
post #2316 of 2625
Mitsubishi says the four smears or smudges equally spaced on the bottom of the screen are normal. OneCall has agreed to take the set back if I am not satisfied with the product. I only see the markings when I have lights on in the room. Also, they are visible whether the TV is off or on. Do any of you other owners of the A91 have these same markings/refections on your screen?

If promark255 wants LED brightness, I don't think he would be that concerned about having a perfectly calibrated picture. I could be wrong, however.

I'm sure the A94 could be cranked up to his liking, otherwise.
post #2318 of 2625
Would the A94 have better PQ than 65D8000? Sharpness, Colours, etc
post #2319 of 2625
Overall I think the Mits would be the winner. The UN65D8000 is an edge lit LED. Nothing special there in that technoligy. If one was looking at that exact Samsung model I would look into the Sharp LC-70LE735U instead. Cheaper in cost, Bigger, and just as good as it bacially has the same technoligy.
post #2320 of 2625
The problem is I need a display that supports checkerboard 3D, so its down to Samsung or Mits, specifically L75A94 or UN65D8000.

Basically, if the A94 matches the brightness and PQ of the Samsung and the A94 doesn't suffer from crosstalk, bad viewing angles, and screen uniformity, I will take it over the Samsung in a second.

DLPs don't exhibit crosstalk, if that helps. Plasma owners always bring up viewing angle as a disadvantage of DLP, but I never saw it as a problem with mine. However, none of my seating is beyond about 120° overall, or 60° to each side. I believe it is as good as, if not better than LED/LCD.

How would you compare the backlight brightness of the A94 to a plasma or led?

That is the problem with Mitsubishi sets in general, and the Laservue in specific.

I'd have to drive over 100 miles just to look at one of these.

I can find a regular lamp based set with a 50 mile trip.

The big box stores that used to sell the really large screen sizes have moved on to other technologies.

Anyone else have these same markings?

Not exactly the same. My problem is a stained look on the inside of the screen. Mits is going to replace it when I get back to FL in about a month so it will probably be an A94.

I think I've seen those on my set but I can't remember if it was this set, the laservue I returned, or the 73737 I had before that...

Anyway, I do not see it on my set now.

Your pic really startled me. I thought someone snuck into my house and snapped it! Really, I have the angled brick fireplace to the right of the screen, a walnut salamander SVDO stand, and a sub between the tower and stand. Also the same hallway and everything...I'll have to take a pic and post after my stuff gets put back in place:

I have a bigger issue where there are two whitesh splotches on the screen that only appear in darker scenes and when the ambient light is dusk or lower.

It was really annoying and after a couple months mits finally replaced the light engine. When they did, they used a service company that was going out of business. After replacement the lower 2/3 of the screen were blurry and the guy just left it like that. He also damaged the back top shelf of my Salamander stand (gouges and nicks in the walnut - even though mits contracted them they claim I have to deal with the company directly for any damages???).

So mits swapped the original light engine back in. Now I have those two white patches plus a 4 inch white circle in the center of the screen that can be seen any time of day in any dark scene. Well, it's been another couple of months and they are finally sending another tech to come take a look.

It took many phone calls before they ever even gave me feedback, and then claimed it was internal reflections and normal. I'm guessing those smears you see are internal reflections.

Just for a clear timeline, I purchased this laservue on 3/28/2011 and reported the problem within 30 days.

Sorry to hijack your post but I've been needing to get this off my chest for a while. I hope I provided some relevant information.

I would be interested to seeing your pics. Yes, Mitsu has said that what I see are reflections and are normal. I do not want to accept it if there are some sets not exhibiting the "reflections." Does anyone have a recommendation as to what TV would be good for me if I decide to send this one back?
post #2330 of 2625
Ive been hearing reports saying that the L75A94 or A91 are not as clear or sharp as an LED / LCD or Plasma.

Ex: Bluray Movies or 1080p Games, wont look as clear / sharp on the L75A94 or A91 compared to Plasma and LED screens?


Is this true?
post #2331 of 2625
Reports from whom? I don't see anything substantial about that. Because you cannot see the individual pixels, people think it is less sharp however you are not supposed to see the individual pixels, you are supposed to see a smooth image. Also you need to compare similar sizes, not a difference in size of 5" - 10". Smaller always appears sharper simply because is it smaller.
post #2332 of 2625
Can someone post HQ pictures of the TV up close, where the pixels would appear and a standard lcd?
post #2333 of 2625

Yep. I Received my new L75A91 a couple of days ago and am seeing those same exact smudges. They appear to become brighter when the room is lit brighter and I guess are reflections of the room light. I also have a white lines appearing in the upper corners of the screen when black background is displayed along with white subject on the screen. There is also a white smear that appears in the center of the screen every time when black background is displayed and is very visible when you turn off the TV and last white LaserVue logo appears it has that smudgy crown on top. I guess it is a warranty issue? Any one has a suggestion?

Great! Cant wait to try it out. Is there any ghosting / crosstalk? Hows the 3D quality?

If it is anything like the other DLP TVs the pixels do not show up - this is on purpose. The other TVs use something called Smooth Picture, which some call wobuation, which hides the pixel structure on purpose.
post #2339 of 2625
TMSKILZ Sounds great! That's what I want to do with mine (once I get it) Do you have an A94 or A91 and what hardware ie glasses do you use?

You're probably better off using this one. Cheaper too.
