Deal Details

Last Edited by skedaddle January 9, 2013 at 02:58 PM
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.

the happiest day is when i sold my 82" mitsu dlp and purchased the 70" vizio plasma and put in a 10 foot home theater in our basement (home theater was put in 3 months before tv was sold and never watched in the 6 months prior to it being sold). The washed out screen when light would hit it was horrible and until i put my home theater in i didn't know what a great large picture could be.

i am really shocked at how long this thread is and how many people purchased this
I don't have a basement so I can't do that. For my needs this TV is perfect and my 92" has been awesome and I couldn't be happier with it.

Lots of people around Slickdeals say many negative things about a 42" tv only having a resolution of 720p......what would they say about a 92" tv with only 1080p?

This doesn't pertain only to DLP. It goes for LCD or Plasma as well.

You can only blow up 1080p so far without the pixels becoming the size of quarters.

why do you even care, DLP is dead remember?

Your passive aggressive behavior is really obvious. I don't know how anyone could (or even would want to) attempt to have an intelligent conversation with you.

Please do us all a favor and go hang out with the other douche bags somewhere else.


Have a nice day!

i have a 42'' 720p plasma in the bedroom and i can tell you at normal viewing distances, there is absolutely no difference between the 1080p set and the 720p set. "pixel size wise" that is. there are far more important things that make a tv look better than others, like contrast levels and color saturation... 1080p at 42'' and lower is a total waste.

And your sizing of the pixels is a total exaggeration... even at these sizes the real pixel with is on the order of 0.050'', while your quarter reference is 0.955''. a factor of almost 20x larger. so, yeah... lets be a little real here Wink

" I don't know how anyone could have an intelligent conversation with you".

Wow. I didn't realize that I was communicating with a 16 year old with those verbal abilities.

Go home to your parents and watch that DLP with the other 1% of the population that owns them.
When you get enough money to afford an LCD or Plasma tv, let us know.

i thought this was a discussion of slickdeals, i.e., Mitsubishi DLP at great giveaway prices, instead of your childish SIX YEAR OLD replies, get lost buddy, these prices ARE less than so called flat screen bargains of which there are many out there, let us enjoy our sets and stop complaining about which is best, i am 72 years old and have see more technology go old than probably your age, in my lifetime i have always purchased old technology at great prices and have never regretted it. YOU are the part of the baby crying generation that just can't let well enough alone and let us enjoy what we have, i will be probably dead gone before my DLP wears out and let my kids enjoy my inheritance on money saved doing what i enjoy doing best, quality for less money.

Born 1940 and still going strong, smile . . .

It's fun to laugh at the people here who have this inflated sense of self worth preaching about their beliefs.

Looks like the free $250 in gift cards are gone now and the bundles are the same price. My deal just got better because of a mix up I got a second bundle free minus the stand. $500 in gift cards, 4 3d glasses and 2 wifi adapters. I wanted 4 pairs of 3d glasses and now I don't have to buy 2 more.

iRabbitt is right. You don't know what you are talking about. Unless you sit about 5-6 feet away from a 92" 1080p TV, your eyes can't discern the pixels. DLP for rear projection is dead not because the technology is bad, but because it wasn't marketable in a world full of sheep who think a TV sucks if you can't hang it on a wall.

If you care to educate yourself on pixels, have a look at this thread:
http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-3319...re-stupid/

Furthermore, DLP is not dead. It is still used in movie theaters and home projectors.

Quote from MrTwo94 View Post :
Thanks, I wasn't finding much when searching for "24p *842". That is unfortunate. I would really like to snag a 92842. Do you happen to know if the 3D content is actually 1920x540 or if it is true 1920x1080? Since they use shutter glasses, I'd assume they are the full deal but I've seen some indications to the contrary.
I found your answer. Yes, the 3D for these (and all 1080p active 3D sets) is 1080p. The passive 3D televisions give each eye a half an image, however the active shutter glasses give each eye full HD at the expense of a touch of brightness (a non-factor in my experience thus far).

http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-3319...ts-better/

To address the negatives mentioned in this article (above) against active shutter (brightness, cost and weight/comfort of the glasses):

* The glasses do slightly reduce brightness, but I can still clearly see full detail of everything on the set. I believe the glasses have improved since the article has written, which is also reflected in my next couple points as well...

* I got 2 pairs of Samsung Active Shutter glasses for $15 each, and 2 pairs of the Xpand glasses for free... Cost has obviously become less of an issue...

* The Samsungs are exceptionally light weight, and don't really feel like anything when wearing them... They are, albeit, a touch flimsy and don't offer any extra material to block ambient light from the sides or bottom, but they certainly do the job and are great if you don't watch all that much 3D, or for backups / additional sets for company or children. The Xpands that came with this deal are actually very nice... They're a bit heavier than the Samsungs, but light enough to be comfortable and offer more material all around to block out ambient lighting. The only thing I did notice was that the first time I used them I had a pressure headache toward the end of the movie, however I have a decently large head (I'm a 6'2" dude, so it's all in proportion) and had them sitting flat against my face... The next time I tried them pulled just a touch forward and they felt great. My wife had no discomfort at all any of the times we have used them.

My WD-82842 came in yesterday, deliverymen were professional, although a little late, no damage. Got it setup with all my components and has been running great. Colors look a lot better than my WD-73C9. I ordered a DVE calibration disc to calibrate. This TV is huge. I am 5'9" and with the stand and TV it is still a few inches taller than me

Vizio made a 70" plasma? I'm not too familiar with any 70" plasma manufacturers.
