Pros Best picture available, hands down. Nothing compares. The sharpness and colors are AMAZING!
Cons Yeah, it's pricey, but if you want the best, you gotta pay for it, and the price is falling fast. Cheapest on the web at this writing is just over $4100.00.
Summary I can afford it, so I have no complaints. If you want to walk into Costco and be able to say to yourself as you're looking at all those DLP's and Plasma's, "My set BLOWS those away", then the Laservue is what you're looking for. I believe product reviews should be about the quality, not the price. If you want the best possible, you're gonna pay a premium. Ask the salesperson to plug in the movie "UP", and go to the scene where the old man lets the baloons go to lift his house, and you'll be taking this set home. Plus, no screen burn in, and the pic will look as good in ten years as the day you bought it, plus it's 3d ready. I'd give my set 6 stars if I could.
Pros looks, nothing good about it otherwise.
Cons poor picture quality, Center of the screen is dim and periphery is brighter( which as per warranty service agent, Mike is "normal". In a white blank screen, you see pinkish verticle stripes.
Summary Do not buy it ple..........ase. I bought it through Direct buy and I am getting run around for taking care of the problems. It is only 2 wks and nobody will do anything or take it back. I am stuck with it.
Go buy panasonic plasma instead which is $300 less at Costco. I already have two of them and they are great.
Pros Great Colors, Wide angle viewing, good brightness, Good Picture, about 10-11 inches deep, which for a projection set it is good.
Cons Horrible Pricing, Mitsubishi believes they can price a projection set against flat panel sets!!!
Annoying Blue lighting below tv screen, Picture is soft when compared to old Misubishi color contrast, more like a sony, but not so bad
Summary When looking at this set, i really was impressed, for a projection set it had great color, brightness and viewing angle, nice slim trim around the set picture area did have a couple annoying things, most notably the bright Blue led lighting below the screen.
For all the hype before the release, without soliciting any consumer or industry feedback for actual production units or pricing info ahead of time, Mitsubishi is fumbling a potentially great product.
My honest thoughts after spending some time with this set, "Why oh why did Sony kill off their SXRD based XBR projection sets?"
But, the controls looks kinda cheap, on a expensive set you would expect the buttons to be a bit more subtle, instead the engineers look like they just put them wherever they felt like it, also someone at Mitsubishi is drinking too much Saki when they put in large blue Led lights below the set. I have no clue why they thought a TV needed extra lights on it to try and make it cool like an alienware Computer.
My biggest issue is price, at $7000 USD list price, you can get alot of other tvs, all of which are flat panel LCD or plasma, probably with better picture. Isn't the idea for projection sets to be less expensive?
Anyway, it looks like the sets will be in short supply for the meantime, so i guess this is why Mitsubishi believes they can overprice them. My take on this tv. looks great, but definitely way over priced.
For me the sweet spot on this set is $3999 list price. and sale price a lil under that. it's obvious that Mitsubishi does not care about selling too many of these sets as they are completely misjudging the market. Especially when we are in an economic downturn.
So, my take on this set is mitsubishi needs to do revision with a better design.
Pros Its Great! Best set I've never seen.
Cons None as I haven't viewed it.
Summary I don't own this television. I've not even viewed it. Apparently you don't have to do either to give a review or rating. It's aggravating to sit and read useless review on products from people who don't own the products. Some I even suspect haven't even viewed the products. So for the benefit of others, if you don't own or have not given the product "real world testing" keep your opinions to yourself.
As for my rating of 5, lets just say it's an effort to try and balance other misrepresented ratings.
Pros Brilliant colors, deep blacks.
100 Watt power usage -- Outstanding design!
Cons None really.
Summary Shopped for price and bought mine new for $1,999 when Mitsubishi had its model changeover to the 75-inch model. There are detailed technical reviews of this Mitsubishi LaserVue that will be more informative than my comments here. All the good stuff you read -- it's all true! This TV has been reliable, i.e., no problems whatsoever.
I am enjoying 3D movies with DLP-Link Glasses and a Panasonic DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player, which outputs the checkerboard signal required for DLP-Link 3D glasses and the Mitsubishi LaserVue. No IR emitter required!
