Default Mitsubishi Drops DLP Displays: Goodbye RPTVs Forever

Quote:
Mitsubishi Electric was the last hold-out in the rear projection TV (RPTV) business, and now the company is dropping the line, CE Pro has learned.

Mitsubishi Electrical Visual Solutions America, Inc. (MEVSA), the group in charge of the RPTV and other video product lines for both residential and commercial markets, has sent a letter to authorized service centers (reprinted below) indicating they are “discontinuing the manufacture of 73”, 82” and 92” DLP projection televisions.”

I am very disappointed to hear this news. DLP rear-projection sets gave you a lot of screen real estate for a very reasonable price. And 3D was superb on these sets with minimal or no ghosting. (Yes, I know that checkerboard and wobulation meant half-resolution per eye, but the lack of ghosting more than made up for it). I'm very sad to hear of the end of this era. Oh, well, I still have DLP front projectors (with full resolution at that).

Hmm might see how low a 92 inch goes for a fire sale.
