Mitsubishi announces pricing for its 2011 3D HDTVs: 92-inch DLP set for $5,999

Mitsubishi recently jettisoned its LCD HDTV business in order to focus on its rear-projection sets. The last company standing in that department, it has just disclosed the pricing for its new 2011 DLP units, which includes an incredibly massive 92-inch TV.

Mitsubishi recently jettisoned its LCD HDTV business in order to focus on its rear-projection sets. The last company standing in that department, it has just disclosed the pricing for its new 2011 DLP units, which includes an incredibly massive 92-inch TV.

There are three Mitsubishi series released this year that are based on DLP rear-projection, which allows for bigger screen sizes for less money than equivalently sized flat panels, but adds bulk in the process. All have 3D capabilities built-in. The 73-inch 640 Series set includes three HDMI inputs and 120Hz refresh rates, and is priced at $1,599. The 740 Series adds StreamTV Internet apps, including services like Vudu and Pandora but apparently not Netflix, and lets your iPhone or iPad work as a remote control via Mitsubishi's free app. The 73-inch model costs $2,099, while the 82-inch version will set you back $3,499.

Finally, the 840 Series (shown above) includes Mitsubishi's new Clear Contrast Screen as well as PerfectColor/PerfecTint technology and a built-in 16-speaker Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound system. The 73-inch version is priced at $2,599, the 82-inch set jumps to $4,199, and the 92-inch monster commands a whopping $5,999. Then again, you probably will have the biggest TV in the neighborhood, with four times the viewing area of a 46-inch set.

Mitsubishi hasn't forgotten its laser-based projection sets, debuting the new L75-A94 LaserVue. The 75-inch TV includes built-in Wi-Fi for StreamTV, four HDMI inputs, 120Hz refresh rates, and PerfectColor/PerfecTint, DeepField Imager, and EdgeEnhance technologies. The company conveniently left the pricing off its press release, but you can assume it will cost about the same as that 92-inch set.
