I am an a/v nut. My other TV is a 10 foot projector. I love this TV. The picture looks fantastic. It makes my 60" phillips I had look terrible. I have not purchased the converter box for the 3d but it's coming soon. The audio is good. The remote is not great but I use dish network's remote anyways.

There are some MINOR critiques. I can say is it takes over ten seconds to start up every time you turn it on, for the projector inside it to light up the bulb. You get used to it, and it is not a big issue. The other thing is that the screen (which is very good at not casting reflections with it's matte finish) is flat in the center but has a slight crown in the corners, which is visible if you're looking for the matte reflection (as it's EXTREMELY well hidden, and only seen when you look for screen's reflection).

Where else are you going to find 73" of screen at this price? And it's incredible looking as well.

I have been casually shopping lcd's and plasmas but went with DLP because the pictures on the new flatscreens these days have outpaced Hollywood and it is hard for me to get into a movie when all I can see are make up lines and blemishes on the actors, (Bruce Willis looks OLD on an lcd! kinda depressing cuz that means I'm getting old too) and all the obviously fake sets. Even the CGI looks hokey IMO. Having said that the mits has a BEAUTIFUL picture. Crystal clear and crisp even in daylight. With the 73' watching sports it's like the play starts in your living room and they score in your dining room----AWESOME! At $1199 by far the best bang for the buck of anything out there right now. The speakers suck, suck, suck so you will want to hook it up to an amp. 3d ready means you have a choice of buying a panasonic 3d bdp which decodes to their checkerboard signal or you pony up some bucks to mitsubishi for the adapter. The 7 and 8 series mits come with a 3d firmware update so the mits adapter is hopefully coming down in price for us cheapskate 638 buyers. Mine was built 9/2010 and did NOT come with the cheesy looking grey speakers. Not as much screen control as the higher end models but this was a non issue as the presets all look fantastic. Bottom line this is the perfect pricepoint monitor for home theater or sports.
