3D TV’s are what’s in today. 3D & LED TV’s is the up and coming thing, whereas 720P & 60Hz TV’s are starting to become a thing of the past.
Have you ever checked out the price of 3D or LED TV’s? They range in price but if you’re planning on getting one that’s good size than you’ll be paying a hefty price.
A friend of mine a couple months back picked up the Mitsubishi WD-73738 73” TV. I found out when I went to his place and nearly had a heart attack upon seeing it. Of course I wanted to check it out, so he fired the massive HD 3D TV up and I was blown away. It was as if he had a movie theater in his house. I was dying to know the details, so here’s a rundown of this enormous Mitsubishi DLP.
- 1080P (Full HD – Blu-ray Quality)
- 3D (Ability to Display 3D Content with DLP Link Glasses)
- 73” (Needless to Say It’s Monstrous)
- Internet (Play Vudu, Pandora, Use Facebook. All of This is Possible with this Internet Enabled TV)
- 120 Hz Smooth (No Need to Worry About Motion Blur Especially when Watching Fast Moving Action Scenes)
After finding out more about this Mitsubishi 73” I was very impressed, especially considering it’s a DLP. I didn’t know too much about DLP’s prior to seeing and learning about this one. I was extremely surprised you could get a TV of this caliber outside of the LED’s & High-End Plasmas. So after I found out all the specs I wanted to know the price. If I picked up a LCD, Plasma or LED or this size it would set me back $5000 or more. To find out I could get the Mitsubishi WD-73738 for under $2000 was a no brainer for me, I had to buy it. I’ve now owned it for about 6 months, here’s my thoughts on it.
- The quality and size of this TV, for the money you can’t beat it.
- I love being able to connect to the internet and rent movies right from the TV. A lot of cool pre-installed apps & channels.
- You can go in and customize every aspect of the display on this TV exactly to your liking.
- 3D works great / HD looks really good when using the HDMI ports.
THE NOT SO GOOD
- You have to purchase specific DLP Link 3D glasses, unless you have an IR Adapter.
- No built in WIFI, you have to connect either by Ethernet cable or by plugging in a network adapter.
- The speakers lack bass. This isn’t a huge deal considering most stock TV speakers aren’t that good.
THE BOTTOM LINE – MY OPINION AND EVERYONE ELSES
My opinion of this Mitsubishi WD-73738 TV is that you’ll be hard-pressed to find a 3D HD TV that delivers this kind of value for the money.
As for everyone else, they shared a similar view. Over 90% of all the reviews I’ve come across have rated the Mitsubishi WD-73738 either 4/5 or 5/5 stars, with the vast majority rating it 5 stars. Most of the positive feedback was for the great picture quality. The only negative feedback I could find was for the extra hassle of having to purchase DLP Link 3D glasses instead of the more common IR 3D glasses. Overall, I highly recommend this Mitsubishi 73” TV, as do many other satisfied customers.
