Mitsubishi WD-65835 DLP HDTV
IntroductionWhile CES 2009 has brought us legions of 7 millimeter thick flat screen televisions, DLP rear projection televisions are still a predominant force in driving the high definition television market.  Firmly committed to manufacturing rear-projection televisions, Mitsubishi continues to release new models of the DLP HDTV’s.  Within their newest Diamond series line, they offer 65” and 73” sizes.  The obvious advantage to going the DLP route is purchasing more screen space for less money out of pocket.Mitsubishi’s Diamond 835 (WD-65835) is a touch under 75 pounds and is actually quite manageable for its weight.  The cabinet depth is slightly over 15 inches and the casing around the screen is surprisingly thin for a television of this size.  The height of the TV falls just under 40 inches and the width clocks in at 58 inches.  This 1080p DLP has a ...

Samsung HL-T5689S LED DLP HDTV
The Basics: The HL-T5689S is a 56-inch, 1080p DLP rear-projection television that replaces the traditional DLP color-wheel/lamp combination with a light engine that uses red, green and blue LEDs. This advanced technology adds a little more to the bottom line, compared with a standard DLP RPTV, but this TV is still a good deal compared with similarly-sized flat panels. The HL-T5689S includes Samsung’s Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) processing and Cinema Smooth light engine, designed to reduce visible pixel structure and improve fine detail. The well-designed menu system contains a nice assortment of picture adjustments, including white-balance controls, a choice of three color gamuts (wide, normal and sRGB), and a My Color Control that lets you fine-tune pink, green and blue hues independently. There are six aspect ratio choices, including a Just Scan mode for viewing 1080i/1080p images with no overscan. The TV’s ...

JVC HD-65S998 HD-ILA HDTV
The Basics: We’re not sure if JVC plans to add any new models to their line of HD-ILA rear-projection televisions, which are based on LCOS technology, so the HD-65S998 and its little brother, the 58-inch HD-58S998, could represent your last chance to get a big-screen JVC RPTV. This 65-inch, 1080p model includes a number of advanced features and technologies, including JVC’s 32-bit Genessa processing chip with Digital Image Scaling Technology and a five-point color management system. The TV uses three native 1080p D-ILA devices and a new optical engine designed to reduce cabinet depth and improve image contrast. The company’s “HD Range 150 MHz Digital Super Detail” is a focusing technology designed minimized motion blur and thus improve detail in faster-moving scenes. This rear-pro has an adjustable iris to lower the light output, and Smart Picture adjusts the image’s brightness based ...

Mitsubishi Diamond Series WD-57833 DLP HDTV
Introduction Reports of RPTV's death have been greatly exaggerated. Okay, maybe not greatly. How about mildly exaggerated? Toshiba, Hitachi, and (most surprising) Sony have all announced that they are abandoning RPTV production. Last September, IDC predicted that RPTV sales would drop from 2.5 million units in 2006 to as few as 30,000 units in 2011, and that was before Sony's announcement. This expected decline is due to the fact that the price of large-screen flat-panel TVs continues to drop, chipping away at the RPTV's biggest selling point: You get more screen size for less money. Indeed, the future may be grim for rear-pro HDTVs, but 2011 is still several years away. Let's talk about the here and now. Right here, right now, Samsung, and Mitsubishi are still committed to their respective rear-pro technologies. As much as flat-panel pricing has fallen, plasma ...

Sony KDS-55A3000 55-inch Bravia SXRD HDTV
Introduction With HDTV’s flying off the shelves nationwide with and prices dropping like clothes off a stripper in a Champagne room, there’s no need to beat around the bush when it comes to Sony’s latest rear pro TV, the 55-inch Bravia KDS-55A3000. It’s going to sell. The question is, do you want one? Sony’s new Bravia TV arrived at my office shortly after the mighty Vizio 60-inch plasma left my humble abode, and within days of my purchase of the latest Samsung 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV (review pending). I had enjoyed the Vizio immensely and felt that it was a solid value for the money. However, when I heard that the new Sony Bravia retailed for $1,999 (a full $500 less than the Vizio), I was at a loss for words. When was the last time you heard of any state ...
