Is Mitsubishi Pulling Out of 3D HDTV?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
After doing some research I was really interested in getting the Mits WD73642: excellent $/size and favorable/unfavorable review ratios. But having never spent $1000+ for anything sight unseen, all I needed was to see one in action. Well, it turns out that I could find no one in the Twin Cities carrys them---including all the dealers who were listed on the Mits Customer Service dealer list. Of course those "Dealers" who are still in business said they'd be glad to order one for me, but I'd have to buy it first as they had no intention of stocking them.
Maybe it's just me, but I wonder about the commitment of a manufacturer who abandons a market of 2.5 million people (4 million if you count everyone in the state of MN)!

Because of the large footprint of these RPTV's most dealers are unwilling to take up there valuabe floor space to display these sets. They do not show well in a showroom enviorment with all the LCD's set to tourch mode. Compared side by side the brightest picture apears better but at home and calibrated these RPTV's will not disapoint. Where can you get a 73" screen for a little over $1000. I think these have there own nitch between a 100" + screen projector and a flat screen plasma or LCD. Hopefully Mits will continue these for a while they are the last ones left.

Sadly, looks like yes, they are pulling out of DLP all together!

That's too bad. I never owned one but I thought about it. I still have a 67 sammy DLP. Hopefully one day I'll beable to get an 80" tv that is passive 3D. Maybe LEDs will get there, but they'd have to come down in price a bit before I invested in an 80.

Yes this is bad news. I will keep my eye on the prices of the remaining stock and if they drop I will update my 60" to something bigger. Or the prices might go up as everyone tries to get in on the last chance to get one of these great sets. Time will tell.

I am very sad as I bought the first 65" DLP for $15,000,then 73". Now I have the 82" in the bedroom and 92" in the living room.Depth does not matter when the TV set is in a large oak entertainment center.

I honestly can't see why people complain about a 92" taking too much depth. Did they forget it's 92" of wall space?
There is one benefit with my LCD vs. my DLP. In bright, direct sunlight, my DLP has a lot of glare. But with it dark @ night, it's no contest. Oh well. gotta move on.

A real shame to see these go! I've got a 2008 73" (73736) and it continues to be an outstanding TV! Has a ton of hours on it and still has an excellent bright vivid picture on the original lamp. Wish I was in a position to snatch up an 82" or 92" before they're gone. I ain't.....
