Before we take a look at Mitsubishi projection TVs, let’s first look at what’s the difference between a projection TV and a CRT-type TV.
The CRT TV sets provided us with great picture quality for many years. However, they could not fulfill the wish of home theater system owners who demanded larger TV screen sizes in their living rooms. Since the CRT TV screen is made of glass, the largest screen size a CRT TV can support is 40 inches diagonally.
So, the main advantage of projection TVs is flexibility of screen size. You must know that there’s a trade-off though for the larger screen size projection TVs support. Projection TVs do not accurately display black properly. Normally, this is not evident when you’re viewing a normal TV show. However, the difference is noticeable for scenes shot in low light.
That said, the type of projection TV that’s popular today on the market is the DLP projection TV. It’s a rear-projection TV which makes use of the Digital Light Processing technology blending with LCD technology. Generally, it’s much cheaper than a similar-sized flat-panel LCD HDTV that does not use rear–projection technology and can be wall-mounted.
Let’s now take a look at some of the Mitsubishi projection TV models. Since size is the main attraction of projection TVs, we shall look at the 65-inch, 73-inch and 82-inch Mitsubishi TV models.
