Even though this 92-inch Mitsubishi 3D DLP TV will be for sale next month it will not be targeted at the mainstream HDTV buyer. In order for Mitsubishi to stay afloat in th HDTV market, the company is focusing on the higher end market by a making a really big 3D DLP TV. This $5,999 DLP rear-projection 3D TV will be an awesome addition to the best home theater room!
Update: Does Your Best Home Theater Need a 92-inch Mitsubishi 3D DLP TV and an easy way to monitor it while you are away?
Hi – Dan here. I was reading through some of the most popular posts
on the blog, and I realized I did not tell you about my favorite way to do keep an eye on my home theater equipment while I am away.
My friends from Easy Home Surveillance has put together a wonderful guide for you for setting up a webcam surveillance system that you can monitor your expensive home theater equipment anytime from your cell phone. There is too much to tell you about on this page, but click on the blue link below, or the picture of Easy Home Surveillance banner, and you can learn more about it over there.
Next month, Mitsubishi will officially start selling the behemoth of a television it first introduced at CES in January. The 92-inch 840 3D DLP Home Cinema TV will cost $5,999, has a resolution of 1080p, uses DLP rear-projection technology, and can display 3D content. It also comes in 72 inches and 83 inches.
Yes, there will be people that will buy it. The kind of people who, say, have a “media room” in their home. In other words, no, it’s not for everyone. So why would Mitsubishi go after such a small portion of TV buyers?
“It’s good to sell volume, but it’s better to make money,” said Frank DeMartin, vice president of consumer product sales for Mitsubishi.
The big-time players in the TV market, Samsung, Sharp, and Sony sell millions of flat-panel TVs every quarter, and Mitsubishi, a small player with about 1 percent of the television market in North America, can’t compete on the number of TVs those guys make. So starting last year, Mitsubishi moved to where none of its competition is in order to stay afloat in the very tough world of making TVs. That means going really, really big and selling technologies you don’t see much from any other player in the industry.
This is an interesting move from Mitsubishi, since this will directly compete with the projector market. At the same time I think this is a good move since this will also fill a small gap of HDTV sizes that a portion of consumers want. Would you consider this 92-inch 3D DLP TV over a projector and screen? If you are in the market for a bigger screen wich would you buy and why?
