I don't think you're understanding my perspective/point/criticism.

I'd posit that the reason we don't generally see it done is because an informed consumer buying DLP wouldn't be looking to hang it in the first place.

I was/am referring to when the display is on, not off. Because they're not "direct view," the best performance with these displays is achieved when one's eyeline is at the same height as the middle of the screen. The ability to achieve that would be problematized by hanging the set, ostensibly at a height higher than one's head.

Precisely. So my question/criticism therefore is: Why--as the first element of a response to someone inquiring about comparative virtues/demerits of DLP versus plasma--say "The big disadvantage of DLP is the thickness of the sets. They don't look very cool when hung on the wall" when no one in their right mind who understands the virtues of DLP (RPTV) should be looking to hang it in the first place?


And it seems to me the thickness is minimal is any room big enough to accommodate a 73" + display. I think the 73738 is 18" deep and I have it about another 18" away from the wall so I can get back there for connections/wiring and I literally don't notice the thickness anymore when I'm looking at the whole room.


But then again, 73" is looking small to me these days and that 82" is calling my name . . .

Does the 83840 have the same bulb as the 73840?


Does the 73840 have the clear screen (as implied on the Mits press release), but which appears to be contradicted on the detailed specs sheet for the 840 series?


Are there any differences between the 840 series and the 838 series in the DLP chips, video processors, or other features affecting picture quality?


Have any improvements been made in the 840 series to reduce the reliability issues that were raised with many of the previous year's sets?

Just want to throw this out early, but looking at getting the 82840 but thinking initial price will be a factor. would like advise on which might be better..the 82838 or 82740? I know the 740 are not in anyones hands yet, but both are close to same price right now. I like the fact that the 740 has the 3d emiiter built in, but really interested in the picture quality between the two.

I could still go for the 840 if the new contrast screen is a big helper over the lower end models.


Thx

I think that space in the room isn't the issue when people are looking to wall mount a TV.

That 18" allowance seems very exceesive. Mine is only a few inches from the wall.

If you want a really large picture, first comes RPTV and then comes the full-tilt projector...

Starting to like the LaserVue models.

I wonder how the 82" DLP's compare against last years LaserVue..

and if this years LaserVue is going to be heads above last years to warrent the high cost.

You're now responding to micro issues not related to my larger, macro point which I trust I clarified sufficiently.

Interesting, problematic penchant for speaking broadly/speculating about what others' priorities are/might be.


I prefer to be able to literally walk and kneel down behind my 73738 and other components, thus the 'excessive' space between the wall and the back of my display.

Not really. A true PJ is the/would have been my first choice. But I am very interested in 3D and the 3D PJ choices at the time I was ready to buy were slim and pricey. I hope that will continue to change over the next 18 months or so.

There have been decent deals lately on the 2010 82" models but what really matters is what is different in the 2011 and is the extra cash worth it.

If a retailer puts an item on there site at an advertized price, you complete the order process and your card shows a pending charge for the item....but the retailer contacts you stating the advertized proce was wrong and the item cannot be sold as advertized, what would you do about this?


Are there ot consumer laws covering issues like this? I know if a local store had an item with the wrong price tag, they have to sell it to you since its marked this way. Would this not also apply in this situation?


Just asking since this situation may arise for me n an item.

No. to my knowledge there is no law, when it happens at a local store they usually honor it but they don't have to. Several retailers post this exact situation so they don't have to honor it.
