Mitsubishi Discontinues DLP TVs: Consumer Alert
From my perspective, this is kind of sad, as DLP TVs provide consumers with much lower prices than equivalent large-sized LCD or Plasma TVs. For example, a 92-inch Mitsubishi WD-92742 DLP TV is priced at about $5,000 (compare prices), while the currently available largest LCD TV, the Sharp 90-inch LC-90LE745U, has a list price of $10,999.
In fact, the 73-inch WD-73C12 DLP set has been selling this holiday season for about $999.99 (compare prices). The least expensive LCD TV that is available closest to this screen size, the 70-inch Vizio E701i-A3, is twice as expensive (compare prices).
Not to mention the fact that it is a lot harder for a toddler to destroy a DLP screen than a LED, Plasma, or OLED.
