If you don't have a Discover card, you can knock a little more off the price by using Dell's gift card promo...

http://content.dell.com/us/en/hom...rd-us.aspx

You can combine one $400 gift card and one $75 promo gift card. Or, if your tax is $75 or greater, you can use two $400 GC's and one $75 promo card. The only limit is on the number of promo gift cards you can use per order, which is one.

Gettin closer....I'm gonna go home and measure tonight just to make sure one of these will fit in my basement. I hope $699 is around the corner

rwbonefish 11-27-2012 05:54 AM

Beautiful television. Only con's I can imagine would be no 3dtv and only 2 hdmi ports. If you're buying this television without a receiver with hdmi ports you probably don't care that it has only 2 and 3dtv is a joke.

Great deal - thanks!

Meant to ask in previous post....how's the stock sound with these? I've got a surround, but it's nothing special, and no receiver....plenty for my basement though. Would be cool if I didn't need to purchase additional audio equipment (at least at first)

It wont go that low. That was a price error last year. It was discussed in length on this forum at that time. After the mistake was realized, it went back up to $799.

paul86 11-27-2012 06:47 AM

BTW, I'm picking one of these up on Friday if the price stays the same. I've been limping along on an aging mitsubishi 62725 TV circa 2004ish. The green push is starting to show which means I have some caps getting bad. This should be a nice upgrade, and I'll get a 4 year square trade warranty also for an additional $145.99. That comes with in home repair/replacement up to $999.00

pizzaslut 11-27-2012 06:57 AM

Have this TV. Love it. Don't know about the stock speakers because I never have/never would use them. Why have a huge HD TV and then send your sound through garbage speakers? Never understood that.

Anyway, my only caution would be this TV does not do well in very bright rooms. The screen easily washes out, especially at certain angles.

mowbr4 11-27-2012 07:06 AM

If you have Discover, you can use Shop Discover through Dell for 10% Cash Back and then the 5% cash back online. Making this 15% Cash Back.

holmy 11-27-2012 07:16 AM

Dont forget the Dell gift cards. For every purchase $400 in GC you receive a $75 GC. They also have the 82 inch version of this TV for 1299.

Not sure if an accurate comparison, but I have a three year old 60" version of this set and it sits in a fairly large living room (20X25). The TV speakers on mine, do have plenty of volume and don't necessarily suck, but they aren't spectacular either. The range is good, vocals are decent, but bass is lacking for obvious reasons. For sports and casual tv watching, I'd think they'd be decent enough but everyone is different.

Does this mean that I could purchase the $400 GC and get the $75 one, then use both towards the TV? If so, this TV could be had for cheap especially with the Discover Cash Back.

Wow... so correct me if I'm wrong here

Thats $120 cash back via shop discover and $150 in gift cards to dell?

If you count both of those this tv is $530+ tax delivered?

Yeah, I'm buying this.

Well, technically it will only be $75 in gift cards because $150 in gift cards is saying that you are buying $800 worth of GC's. Does that make sense?

It looks like it will be. $800 - $120 (Discover Cash back - 10% + 5%) - $75 (Dell Gift Card) = $605.00

Damn good deal.

However, I just looked on Dells site and the promotional gift card cannot be combined with another Gift Card. Therefore, that won't work. But still using Shop Discover, you get $120 Cash back making the TV, $680 with FS. Still a GREAT PRICE.

asilva54 11-27-2012 07:38 AM

how fast do you get the $75 if you buy the $400 ecard?

edit: just saw that they might not work together.

Ah, thanks for the info.

Could always sell the promotional Giftcard for $65 or whatever they'd go for on ebay if you wanted to.

Was holding out for $699, so $680 is still adequate...and a $75 GC to boot...

holmy 11-27-2012 07:57 AM

You can use the $75 promo card along with the $400 gift card. However you can not combine the 2 in the sense of calling up Dell and asking for a $475 GC for the 2. This prevents people from buying say 3 gift cards for $400 each = $1200 and then also getting 3 Free $75 promo cards =$225 and then combining them for $1425. You can combine the 3 GC making it a $1200 GC and use a (1)$75 promo for a purchase.

So you're saying that I could purchase the $400 GC for myself and receive the $75 GC, then use both towards this purchase? Are you sure?

Oh oh it may be time to throw down.

Pretty sure as i have done this before myself. Dell just doesnt want you to combine multiple promo cards together. (Promo card GC is the free $75 card).

Wow, now if that's true, this TV can be had with Shop Discover and the Dell Promo for almost $600.

Kevoo_11 11-27-2012 08:12 AM

Okay so what is the correct method of doing this?

Do you/ can you use shop discover on the gift card? or just buy it outright, then use shop discover on the TV combined with the gift card(s)

I don't have a discover card, but my girlfriend does.....and I'll just make her let me use hers. It's time for me to freaking apply for one and tell my Visa to suck it.

/e

and does anyone know when this is valid until? Or how long a deal like this typically lasts?

CINCYCANE 11-27-2012 08:14 AM

I just purchased this and I used 3 Gift Cards 2*400 + 1*75 (taxes). With Free Shipping worked out as a good deal. Plus added Discover. To use multiple cards you need to call Dell. Waited about 20 min before speaking to someone.

MixMasterP2K3 11-27-2012 08:18 AM

Yeah how quickly do you get the $400 gc?

Make sure when you do apply for a Discover card to get her to send you an invite and use that to apply. That way you'll both get $50 cash back added to your account through their "Share Discover" refer-a-friend deal.

If I use two GC's, the $400 and $75, I still have to call them? Do I call them to place the order?

I believe it is up to $1500.

Also, I just checked on the ShopDiscover website. The 10%+5% does not work towards gift certificates.

I also just spoke with a Dell Customer rep and she said that the giftcards cannot be used together. Bummer. Looks like the best deal is ShopDiscover.

You could buy 2*400 Dell giftcards which includes 2*75 promotional gift cards.

Combine the Two 400 gift cards to make it 800 + tax.

Sell the 2 75 gift cards on sites like plasticjungle.com for about 60 bucks.

You minus about 120 bucks off total for around

680 + tax.

drymonkey 11-27-2012 08:38 AM

Giftcards can be used together, you just CANNOT do it online. Therefore you will have to pay by phone if you are planning to use both GC. So probably the best option is Shopdiscover + $75 GC and pay online with Discover, then find something else to buy later with that $400 GC since that one doesn't expire.

mowbr4 11-27-2012 08:39 AM

So, overall is this TV worth $680-$700?

Same boat. I mainly want to get the TV for under $800 (after tax). That's my goal. I don't need this TV but I want it.

We have a different recollection of the $699 price. The set was listed at $699 on best buys web site first thing on black friday, it sold for almost half the day until it went out of stock. Everyone that had a legitimate order got it delivered. I don't recall anything about a pricing error. BB has also sold the 60-65" version of this for $499 and that price held for several weeks without being corrected.

But while I doubt it'll hit $699 again, it might. $800 for the set is still pretty darn good when you consider the cost per square inch. I paid $900 for my 73" and love it. But I remember the BB deal specifically because I bought the set for $900 and then BB listed it for $699 the next day and by the time I got my order @$900 cancelled, BB was out of stock.

I think the primary thing at work here is BB's cash flow. When they're in need of some, they dump items at a ridiculous price.

You were able to combine the codes online? Or did you have to call in to place the order?

If anyone is interested, I will give you $60 for the $75 GiftCard. PM me. I can Paypal the money. This way, you won't have to be worried about using two codes online.

CINCYCANE 11-27-2012 10:04 AM

You have to call in and that is the only way I know how to combine the gift cards. Took about 20 minutes on hold.

hippo2710 11-27-2012 10:25 AM

I see discussions about the GC's and the deal, but I haven't seen anything about the quality of the TV. Does this TV's screen fades out after a few years, like DLP's in the early and mid 2000s? I had an old DLP, and the brightness and colors fade out after using it for about 3 years or so. Does this TV suffer the same issue?

This is going to be the case with any DLP TV, but with a new bulb for around 100 bucks you will have a brand new tv again. I have the 65" version of this and am thinking about picking this up for my brother as he is in the market for a new tv.

Are you going the shop discover, or the 2 gift cards route?

It would end up being like $730 after tax by me, and I'd probably want to add a square trade. It's still a lot of tv for the money....

Stupid part is that I was willing to drop the $688 in a heartbeat for the vizio on BF and got too drunk to go.

Woulda actually been more than this....

It does work. I used the $400 + $75 + an AMEX GC I bought from ebay. You just have to call 1-888-686-DELL & they will combine GCs for the order. It takes a while on the phone about 20 minutes. I don't care much for 3D so this is a nice deal to me.

Sure

1) Go to Discover.Com
2) Login
3) Click "Cashback Bonus" dropdown
4) Click 5% Cashback Bonus Program
5) Sign up for the promotion from October-December. (This is for the original 5%)
6) Select "Cashback Bonus" dropdown again and click "ShopDiscover"
7) Click "Select a Retailer" and click "Dell"
8) This will then allow you to shop through the Dell site with the additional 10% off.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, I was starting out directly from shopdiscover.com. I am already signed up for the 5% but when I got through these steps, how can I verify that I will be getting the full 15% back on this purchase?

Agreed, Same here... If it hit the low 600... after tax... I would get one for my master bedroom...

paul86 11-27-2012 01:47 PM

I pulled the trigger. It is $870ish before cash back, so even with only 10%, it would be under $800.00

You just need an audio cable with male RCA connectors on each end. Plug one end into the digital out on your tv and the other into the digital in on your receiver.

Thank you very much, will try it.

How do they make any money with free shipping? This thing must cost a fortune to ship.

fgld73 11-28-2012 04:01 AM

This is an awesome DLP especially if you use Discover. I got inpatient and found one locally on BF for $799, guess I should have waited a week could have saved a lot. I would prefer the 700 series model but for this price you can't go wrong. Picture and black levels are great.

postermen 11-28-2012 09:47 PM

Did they stop the GC promo? The only promo I see is the $10 bonus from coinstar.

Rippa_MD 11-28-2012 09:55 PM

C series? what's the difference with other series??

Yep, they sell the mounts on Mitsu.com. I got mine hanging on the wall and its nothing short of beautiful.

Don't see the mounts listed on the mitsubishi tv website and I don't think they sell them. This is not a thin tv and doesn't have mounting holes on the back.

paul86 11-30-2012 09:15 AM

Adding a little more to this thread. I checked today and the TV is being sent from DFW to MCI, so its flying from Dallas to Kansas City. Then it will be put on a truck on its way to the Topeka area. Imagine if we had to pay for shipping directly as opposed to having it built into the cost.

vmarkx1 11-30-2012 02:48 PM

I have a 50" panasonic plasma set couple years old and wanted to see how far the DLP tech came along.

I was dissapointed in the following areas:
- PQ was dull and poor
- further from the center of the screen became darker and darker
- forget about putting the tv anywhere near a window or lit area, reflects everything
- I the bowing effect

If your trying to decide between say a 60" panny plasma vs this 73" Mitsu DLP for ~$800 price point, I highly suggest going with the 60" panny plasma. the only thing going for the DLP is the size.

That 60" Panny Plasma is going to be a sh%t-ton more reflective than this matte screen DLP. What model of DLP did you have? I had a 65" DLP and didn't notice any bowing. Picture wasn't "dull and poor" either.

And it is ALOT bigger. 60" vs. 73" Screen Comparison. [displaywars.com]

I actually canceled my Panasonic.com plasma order and decided to go back to DLP. I couldn't deal with going smaller than what I had. I have also seen alot of complaints about image retention with Panasonic Plasmas this year, although some people are saying that they don't have a problem with it. Some also are complaining about line bleed being pretty noticeable on the 60u50.

I have this TV in my living room, satisfied but I now want to pawn it off and get that 92"

To think about how shock and awed i was when I saw how big 73" was in my living room, imagine 92"..lol

Kevoo_11 11-30-2012 07:42 PM

I've been on the fence about this for days....Someone convince me to buy it.

Shopdiscover still works right????

Do it. I did it. Other people are doin' it. It's big and beautiful. No ghosting, flashlighting, clouding, light leakage, line bleed, image retention, or burn in. And how else can you get that in 73 inches at $800?

I don't have a Discover card so I don't know about Shopdiscover but I went through m r r e b a t e s and got $40 cashback so it will be a tiny bit over $800 after taxes.

Damn, Anyone know if dell still has the 15% on SD?

Loki240SX 12-01-2012 07:58 AM

So I'm pretty tempted by this TV after selling my old plasma. I'd like to do this little Shopdiscover deal I've heard talk about, but I don't have a Discover card (can't apply for one either due to lack of credit), however I know someone with a Discover card. Would it be possible to log into Shopdiscover with his login, but PAY for the giftcards with my own debit card?

No you can't. You have to use a discover card to get the cb.

Kevoo_11 12-01-2012 02:23 PM

Got it.

ISO a cheap TV stand for it now because I'm poor.

/e

Pissed I missed out on the Onkyo reciever for $100.

mattzane227 12-01-2012 07:42 PM

Just saw this on AVSForums. Mitsubishi Drops DLP Displays: Goodbye RPTVs Forever [cepro.com]

Mine just shipped today, is it smart to buy something that is being discontinued? I wonder if the price of bulbs will go up b/c of this.

Damn. Mine still hasn't shipped. That article makes me a little bit skeptical about this tv.

Yeah and I canceled my freaking Panny Plasma from Panasonic.com and now it's not available from them. It looks like Dell has 30 day easy returns with free return shipping. I'm thinking about having them turn the shipment around before it even gets here. I'm waiting to see what a few other people's opinions are. If the bulbs are going to skyrocket in price in a few years then I don't want this thing. Not sure if that will happen or not though.

Either that or be dirt cheap....

Does the squaretrade cover bulbs? If so I'll just complain every year that the bulb burnt out and have them send me a new one and keep em in the closet.

I don't think squaretrade covers bulbs but if you go to Mitsubishi's website sometime during your first year and say your bulb is blown they will send you a new one. It worked for me with my 65C9. They didn't make me send in the old one or anything. (good b/c it wasn't really blown).

I wonder if the DLPs prices are going to drop even more now that they are being discontinued. Am I going to feel like I got ripped off paying $800 in a month or so when they are going for $500 or something?

SO 2 bulbs = 6-10 years

yeah I'm good....

Yeah you're probably right. I sold my 65C9 and it had like 5500 hours on it and it was still going on the original bulb.

I think I'll still grab an extra one if i can find one at a decent price.

I'll just craigslist this for similar price if I decide I want to upgrade

mattzane227 12-01-2012 08:11 PM

I sold my 65C9 for $500, but I sold it with an extra bulb from Mitsubishi. So yeah, you probably won't lose too much money if you want to sell it in a few years.

paul86 12-04-2012 02:30 PM

TV is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. I called to verify with the freight company. WOO HOO, present waiting for me after work tomorrow.

tourbound6 12-04-2012 02:57 PM

Mine is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow as well. Hopefully bulb prices will go down. Cheapest I see on Amazon right now is about $80. I can get a bulb for my 60c9 for $36. Its always good to have some back ups on standby.

paul86 12-05-2012 02:28 PM

Just arrived. Time to unbox it.

Price up to $1200 now. Missed it again.....

gail321 12-05-2012 02:54 PM

I bought one of these 5 years ago for 3000.00! Can't believe the price now. Great TV, love it!!

MattChrome 12-10-2012 01:12 PM

Mine finally came today. Can't wait to unbox it and get it set up when I get home. I tried to trade in the $75 giftcard on those gift card exchange sites, but it said it only took plastic cards from Dell, no electronic promo codes.

Kevoo_11 12-10-2012 02:40 PM

Set mine up....jesus christ

I need good settings to watch sports on....any thoughts?

Jacads 12-30-2012 03:58 PM

I was thinking of returning this TV so I called Dell to setup a return and they gave me an extra $60 off to not return it. combine with my 10% discover card deal makes this around $700.00.
