These things have actually slimmed down quite a bit. Not a huge fan of DLP, but it's 73 INCHES.

That's insane...having a TV with a screen that is the same height as you haha.. I don't think I've even seen one of these things yet (in "real life" that is)

[edit]
It's actually been awhile since I've checked on DLP...how's the picture on 'em nowadays?

@drchops: i'm only 5'1.5". i think a tv that has me on height might freak me out lol

Don't forget about the replacement bulb for $100 you'll need to buy within a year after casual viewing. Hopefully someone still makes them when you need it.

I bought one of these for my folks for Christmas for $999 open-box from tiger direct. It really does have a superb picture when viewing from 8ft - 15ft. It takes a few seconds for the picture to show up when you first turn it on, and you'll want to hook it up to an audio reciever, but for the money these TVs are well worth it. Tigerdirect sells a decent stand that was made just for these tvs. It isn't easy finding a stand for a 73" that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I have the 60" Mitsubishi DLP, best TV I've ever had. I have had this for a year and a half and have never had to replace the bulb.

Comments here are hilarious. :)

It's 73" measured diagonally, not high.

Bulbs will be around for these for years and years. Life span is 3,000 hours. If you exceed that in a year, that's most certainly NOT "casual viewing."

PQ on these 3D-ready Mitsubishi sets will obliterate LCD and/or plasma for film. Plus, show me a 73" display in any ohter tech for anywhere close to this price...other than front projector, of course. Although, if one is inclined to that route, 73" is absolutely puny.

I have the 65" version of this. 3D and basically anything you put on this set looks great. After about 1.5 years of owning it I did replace the bulb ($100) but not because it went out, I'm VERY picky about that kinda stuff and noticed the picture was a little dim, many others didn't, but I replaced the bulb anyways, which takes all of 5 min. Keep in mind this was with HEAVY use, i work from home and TV was on 10+ hours a day, 7 days a week. Anyone who buys this will really enjoy it.

LOL! You guys must work for Mitsubishi or something!

I also have the 65 inch version, I was as skeptical as anyone before I decided to take the plunge and buy a DLP. I have had mine for just under a year now and we could'nt be happier. PQ is amazing. I also have the complete 3D setup which is good as sitting in the theater. Be warned tho, at 65 inches this is a huge tv, 73 is really big and they also have an 82. When I decide to buy a newer tv I will be getting either the 73 or 82 once you go large you can't go back. For those of you not in the know I would also suggest buying a digital set top box, if you are as picky as I am about HD quality, you will be blown away at how much better over the air FREE HD loooks. Cable and Sat. have to compress it to send the signal, over the air is not compressed. It you love watching sports ass much as I do then you are missing out.

Edit:This TV has has a built in soundbar, this is a great price. I might convince the wifey its time to upgrade early =;)

@segafanalways: What? So buying a bigger TV for a lower price than a smaller and thinner LCD makes my peen smaller? I think it just makes my wallet fatter... and my quantity of women greater ;)

@spyder69696969 we all know TV's are measured diagonally, they're saying it's longer diagonally than they are tall, ya prick

vote-for1vote-against

FWIW, have the 73" model and the 82" model. Have or had every other type of TV made (RPTV, CRT, LCD, etc) and the DLP is easily the biggest bang for the buck. It's not even close. With that said though I still feel that the either of my plasma's has blacker blacks and the color scale is more vivid. But try to buy even a 73" plasma, good luck with that! Just wonder if they are going to release an 91" this year so I can buy that too!

@drumber42: That's not what either poster said at all.

Should I be upset by a derogatory comment posted by someone that can't even read on a first-grade level? Thanks for the laugh! LOL!

Which Mitsubishi declared bankruptcy? You realize there are literally dozens of completely separate companies with the name Mitsubishi right? Mitsubishi Motors, Mitsubishi Electric, Mitsubishi Electric Automotive just to name a few.

my boyfriend has the 65" and they've had the TV for over 2 years and havent had to replace the bulb yet. he and his roommates just built a stand, which wasn't difficult and turned out pretty nicely. and this tv is AWESOME.. everyone comes over for football games and its especially great for kinect. i'd rather have a huge tv for 1/3 of the price of an LED, but that's just me. i don't even know if i'd feel safe mounting a 65" tv, and if you're not mounting it, then the slimmer size doesn't really matter anyway
