Deal Details

Paul's TV has the entire Mitsubishi Diamond Series at the cheapest they've ever been to my knowledge. These are the 842 series, the highest end non-laser DLP series Rear Projection Televisions that Mitsubishi manufactures - this year's models. These are cheaper than Black Friday / Cyber Monday! Excellent bundles are available as well!

All TVs come with FREE White Glove Delivery - They will bring in your product, unpackage and set your TV where you want it, plug it in, power it on and allow for you to examine everything to ensure everything is functional and unharmed.

The Innovex stands are glass panel shelves with metal frame - they fit the TVs seamlessly and look very nice with them (I have the WD-73842 with the Innovex Black 65). They are simple to assemble and offer a simple, yet classy / progressive look with a good amount of storage).

BEFORE ANYONE DISSES THIS DEAL:

Yes, these are DLP Rear Projection Televisions. They are, however, the highest end non-laser DLP offered by Mitsubishi, being fully ISFccc compliant (complete set of calibration settings), having better black levels (not listed, but I dare you to compare to the 742 series or below), built in FULL HD 3D glasses emitter (and DLP Link), 16 speaker surround sound bar, etc... As stated above, I currently have the WD-73842, and I have several friends with decent sized LED LCD Televisions envious of the picture quality AND size of this television (I currently use pretty much fresh out of the box settings, just tweaked tint so far). Viewing angle is non-issue for us - we can comfortably see the image from as much as 70 degrees off axis in each direction (maybe more, but we don't really have reason to test that).

Yes - Mitsubishi is leaving the consumer television market, however replacement parts will still be available through them and through authorized resellers (aftermarket replacement parts are available as well).

Yes - you have to replace the lamp every few years... It's $99 new for a OEM product that brings the picture back to "like new" when replaced. I've seen aftermarket lamps for $49... I'd prefer OEM personally, however the options do exist.

Anyhow, on to the info!!

All of these come with $250 in gift cards broken down as follows:

$50 - Royal Crown Watches
$25 - The Sunglass Store
$25 - Zunki
$25 - Pro Football Fan Gear
$25 - Pots & Pans Plus
$25 - Rock Canyon Leather
$25 - iGadget Mall
$50 - Studio 21 Jewelers

I, personally, found most of these to be pretty 'meh', however YMMV.

Quote from WLDock View Post :
a 92" screen rather it be a DLP, LED, projection screen is goung to be ptretty tall. The Mitsu is about 55"...with 8-9ft walls I would guess 20"-26" would be about the distance from the floor. This is low enough for young kids to still be able to put their sticky hands on the screen.

Given the very steep prices of 80"-90" LED sets, going with the Mitsu and getting a tilt kit like this: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=182-158 if this is what your worry is, will save you quite a bit. IMO, with the lights off the Diamond sets are more movie theater like than some LCD, LED, and even some Plasma sets.

yeah - that i realize... i just like the clean look of having nothing but screen up front. i agree 100% that DLP looks as good as any of the others out there. my current DLP is circa 2008, and most people think it's a plasma until they see the back.


ideally all my components would be in a closet and the only thing up front would be TV and speakers.

Yeah, I felt the same way as you...but by the time I pulled my floorstanding speaker away from the back and side walls the equpment still dominates the room...even when I had a 50" Plasma on the wall. IMO, unless all the audio is hidden behind the screen...such as an ALL OUT home theater room projection set up, the look is really not that clean.

For me it was a choice of settling for a 60" or spending BIG bucks on a 65-70." I decided to pass on those and picked up a used 73" DLP for SO much cheaper. With the liights down and a Blu-Ray playing all I see is screen real estate!

But, it would be cool to someday have a home that I can do something special with and build a custome room.

Is there any motion blur on these, especially with a game like call of duty?

Sorry to seem like a troll, but DLP is so old technology. Had an order Mitsu DLP, and the clarity after a few years was utter crap. Had to get my board refurbed, since it was a common problem. Consumer reports have Mitsu at the very bottom for repairs and no TV's breaking in at any recommendation. Go with LCD/LED all the way and stay far away from Mitsu.
Yeah, thats why all the top theaters use the technology.

I don't care if its done with stone knives and bear skins. It looks great, and its cheap. $99 will buy you a +3 year warranty extension from Costco (squaretrade). Four years of nice problem free tv...

This argument is the tv equivalent of "I had a pinto once and it sucked, so don't buy Fords".

I have the 73640...one of the nicest tv's I've ever owned, as good or better than the lcd/led's I have, uses less electricity, great PQ, crappy sound (although the speakers in the 84x series are pretty good), and its a big box sitting on top of a big cabinet full of electronics stuff...so it being flat or mountable would do absolutely nothing for me.

And here we have a text book example of the typical consumer who simply goes by the "brightness" of the tv to determine which is "better"....
And who doesn't know that tv sales people aren't going to tweak the cheap sets so they sell instead of the expensive ones...

And of course, what it looks like in default mode in a tv store under fluorescent lights is exactly what it'll look like in your living room. laugh out loud

None! That's actually one of the huge advantages of these... LCDs are the only technology that has motion blur issues. DLPs are completely immune to burn in as well.

Really don't care about the theaters. There is a reason why these TV's are made for home anymore. Nobody wanted them because they were so bulky. My point again is that Mitsu as far as service goes is at the bottom of the list. No TV's are tops in the list. Just stating facts once again. You guys must be drinking the DLP cool aid. Wink

All I know is that I have a 73" TV with a beautiful picture that is more than bright enough to view comfortably in my well lit living room, has more than sufficient viewing angles for my space, and makes friends and family who own the other formats drool. I don't care about wall mounting - as a matter of fact, I prefer stand mounting - and I have more than enough room to accommodate it (as most people seeking these televisions do). I also know that it cost me a third less than a comparable LED LCD that, to be honest with you, I'm not really a fan of the image it produces, and is manufactured by a company with a somewhat sketchy history as well (Sharp).

Find me a good Plasma in the 70-80" range that can be presently had for less than $3,000 and I'll buy one for both of us.

I have a 5 year warranty on the TV, so we'll see about service...

I'll continue to drink the DLP Kool-Aid cuz it's some tasty stuff (and the majority of blind taste tests agree)... You keep on drinking your ignorant and unwarranted Haterade, as it seems to bring you whatever pleasure it is that you seek.

Actually TV sales people do not tweak the cheap sets, they are put on default store mode. Generally speaking you tweak the more expensive sets as more expensive tvs you sell the closer you will reach your daily budget. Who would want to sell a $200 32" tv when you can see a 55" $6000 LED?

And honestly people think they will get a that much amazing picture at home vs the store, no that's actually a misconception what you see at the store the picture quality wise isn't going to improve dramatically from the store to your home.

That 65" eh6000 series has a shitty image quality at the store and will be shitty at home that's why there are so many samsung tv returns.

Just like that vizio 999.99 E601i, the store mode it has set the tv on is so amazingly horrible it makes people look like they have spray tans on. Blues aren't truely blue but rather sky blue. You get what you pay for not saying this Mitsubishi is bad though, it could be great just I am personally not a fan of huge giant tvs that are eventually hard to move when you need to move out.

I still rent so the DLP wouldn't be good for me personally, but if you own a home and plan on living there for 4+ years then this is a decent tv for the size and price.

Quote from thebuyingseller View Post :
yup, got it! i just thought there would be some kind of support in the middle too so that there's three columns instead of just the two on both sides...
I just built the 83" stand and it does have a center support on the front. The bottom and middle glass shelves are not as thick as the top. I left off the feet also and hope the spacing is enough to fit my AV gear and speakers. Looks to be a tighter fit over my last stand. Overall the stand is nice and I doubt I could find a 83" stand for the price paid, not even close.

Now I have to go and take everything out of my old stand and put it into the new one.....

Not trying to troll but I would never again by another dlp. Paid around $3k for one in 04, a purchase that big should not last just 5-6 years, with tons of issues in between. You might have a 5 year warranty, we did too, don't expect it to last any longer than that. So many repairs on it while under warranty and they always came back. And after the warranty was up we just had to deal with all the issues until it finally just died again. Had a great picture but the problem with dlp is there are too many moving parts, too much room for error. And its not just one brand, dlp gets the lowest ratings from consumer reports. Not to mention replacing the bulb every two years. Even cheap lcds last longer than these sets, and since they are not being made any more you will be replacing it with something else within five years, why not just make the switch now and save your money.

I guess tongue-in-cheek doesn't work very well in electronic conversations, because thats exactly what I said.

Be interesting if this was a samsung deal.

It is great, and it also weighs ~80-100lbs, less than similar sized lcd/led/plasma sets. My petite pipsqueak wife and I brought it in from the driveway and put it on the stand. If it wasn't so freaking enormous, I could pick it up by myself.
