Mitsubishi Offers 73-inch and Larger DLP TVs for 2011

Are you looking for the largest screen display possible, but don't want to make the jump to a video projector and screen? You might consider the forthcoming DLP TV line-up from Mitsubishi.

In a surprise announcement, Mitsubishi has decided to drop all of its 65-inch and smaller DLP TVs and concentrate on DLP TVs in the 73-inch and larger screen size category. What makes this move interesting is while LCD and Plasma TVs dominate in the 65-inch and smaller screen sizes, the few LCD and Plasma TVs in sizes larger than 65-inches are very expensive. For example, an 85-inch Panasonic Plasma TV can cost upwards of $30,000 (2D) or $40,000 (3D), while the new 82-inch Mitsubishi WD82740 DLP TV carries a much more reasonable price tag of about of $3,499. If you are looking for something even larger, the new Mitsubishi 92-inch WD92840 DLP TV is priced about $5,999. All Mitsubishi DLP TVs in the new line-up are 3D enabled, and the 740 and 840 series sets also include network connectivity. The combination of screen size, features, and price is where Mitsubishi feels it can make a market impact with consumers.
