If anything could dethrone the Samsung DLP HDTV as the 3DRoundup gold standard in 3D displays, it just may be a Mitsubishi LaserVue. This 10" deep, wall-mountable, DLP rear-projection display uses red, green and blue lasers to generate the projected light. According to Mitsubishi, the lasers save power over LCD and Plasma TVs while delivering substantially more color information than conventional HDTVs. The best part is that the TI SmoothPicture technology built-into Mitsubishi DLP HDTVs makes it possible to get stunningly good 3D. What could better than having 3D frickin' laser beams shooting at your face? Mitsubishi claims that the lasers will work indefinitely without burning out or fading.
Better start saving those pennies now. The 65" LaserVue will set you back $6,999 and begins shipping at the end of September. A 73" model (pricing TBA) will ship later this year. These do represent a substantial premium over other 3D-Ready DLP HDTV's. A comparable 65" 3D-Ready Samsung LED-based DLP streets for about $2,000.
