Mitsubishi may be the only remaining manufacturer of rear-projection DLP TVs, but if you are looking for the largest screen display possible, for the lowest price, and don't want to make the jump to a video projector and screen, a DLP TV might be just the ticket.
For 2012, Mitsubishi is offering DLP TVs in the 73, 75, 82, and 92-inch screen sizes, distributed across five model series, broken down as follows:
C12 Series: Offered in the 73 or 82-inch screen size, with suggested prices of $1,599 and $2,599. Key features include 1080p native display resolution, 120Hz Sub-Frame rate, 6-Color Processor and two HDMI inputs.
642 Series: Also offered in the 73 and 82-inch screen sizes and also priced at $1,599 and $2,599. Adds 3D with built-in 3D emitter, 3 HDMI inputs, and Advanced video calibration.
742 Series: Offered in the 73, 82, and 92-inch screen sizes, and priced at $1,799, $3,099, and $4,999. Built-in 3D, but also adds WiFi internet/network connectivity, StreamTV media platform with Vudu Apps, iPhone, iPad remote control app compatibility, and PC desktop control option.
842 Series: Also offered in the 73, 82, and 92-inch screen sizes, but priced at $2,199, $3,599, and $5,999. Besides everything featured in the 742 series, the 842 series adds a 16-speaker IST sound system, Center Channel mode option, Surround and Subwoofer preamp outputs, Bluetooth 3D emitter, Bluetooth audio straming, and ISFccc calibration settings.
L75-A96 LaserVue TV: This is a single model entry that comes in the 75-inch screen size and is priced at $5,999. What make this set different is that it uses a laser light source in combination with DLP technology to create exceptional color and black levels, and is also very energy efficient. L75-A96 is 3D enabled. However, it is not specified yet if L75-A96 is internet or networked-enabled as the previous version of this set was.
