Best DLP TVs - Best 3D DLP TVs

DLP Rear Projection TVs

By

NOTE: As of December 2012, Mitsubishi, has ceased production and distribution of DLP TVs.

However, this list will be maintained so long as Mitsubishi TVs are available in store inventories, via third parties, or the secondary market. Keep in mind that going forward, TVs featured on this list may only be available intermittently, so no additional links are provided. However, Mitsubishi will continue technical support and parts for owners and buyers of DLP TVs until announced otherwise. For more details, read my report.

1. Mitsubishi L75-A96 LaserVue DLP Television

Take a DLP projection television and, instead of using a traditional light source to produce the viewable image on the screen, employ laser technology for the task.

The result: Excellent color reproduction and contrast, as well as a light source that doesn't wear out. Also, this set is so thin, it can even be wall-mounted like an LCD/Plasma TV.

The Mitsubishi 75-inch L75-A96 not only features LaserVue technology, but is also 120Hz 3D-ready (with optional accessory processor and glasses), and offers 6 color processing, 1080p native resolution, four HDMI inputs, and internet streaming.

I have seen both prototypes and production versions of this set at CES and CEDIA and it is impressive.

2. Mitsubishi WD-92742 92-inch 3D DLP TV

If you think that a TV with an 82-inch sreen is big, how about a TV that has a 92-inch screen? The Mitsubishi WD-92742 is 3D-enabled, and features a 92-inch, 16x9 screen, native pixel resolution of 1920x1080 and 1080p upscaling, supported by six-color processing and a 120Hz refresh rate. Other features include an HDTV Tuner (ATSC and QAM), 4 HDMI inputs, and a USB input for display of digital photos or flash drive music file access. Additional bonuses include Stream TV (Vudu) Internet Apps, allowing you to view a host of internet content, as well as a 12 speaker audio system. If you like your TV really big, and with lots of connections, check this one out. You won't find an LCD or Plasma Television in this screen size, and if you do, it would not be anywhere near the price of this Mitsubishi DLP projection set.
 

3. Mitsubishi WD-82742 82-inch 3D DLP Projection TV

If you like it big, here is one of the largest screen sizes available in a DLP Rear Projection TV. The Mitsubishi WD-82742 is 3D-enabled, and features an 82-inch, 16x9, screen, native pixel resolution of 1920x1080 and 1080p upscaling. Other features include an HDTV Tuner (ATSC and QAM), 3 HDMI inputs, and a USB input for display of digital photos or flash drive music file access. Additional bonuses include a 120Hz refresh rate and Stream TV (Vudu) Internet Apps. If you like your TV really big, and with lots of connections, check this one out. There are only a few LCD or Plasma TVs in this screen size, and they are not anywhere near the price of this Mitsubishi DLP projection set.
 

4. Mitsubishi WD-73742 73-inch DLP Rear Projection TV

The Mitsubishi WD-73742, with its 73-inch, 16x9, screen, is a large DLP-based projection television that is surprising affordable. Featuring a native pixel resolution of 1920x1080 and 1080p upscaling, this set delivers the detail to fill its large screen. Other features include an HDTV Tuner (ATSC and QAM), 3 HDMI inputs, and a combined component/composite video input. Additional bonuses include: 3D compatibility, 120Hz refresh rate, and Stream TV (Vudu) Internet Apps. Also, this set has a decent built-in speaker system if you prefer not to have an external sound system. If you like your Television really big, but don't want to pay the big bucks, check out the Mitsubishi WD-73742.
 

5. Mitsubishi WD-73642 73-inch DLP TV

If you are looking for really big screen TV, but don't have the budget for an LCD or Plasma TV, check out the Mitsubishi WD-73642. Featuring a 73-inch, 16x9 screen, supported by 1080p native resolution, six-color processing, 120Hz refresh rate and both 2D and 3D display capability, this set is definitely worth a look. Other features include an HDTV Tuner (ATSC and QAM) and 3 HDMI inputs. However, it is important to note that this set does not incorporate internet streaming and the provided USB port is for firmware updates only.
