>> Hi, I'm David Katzmaier, senior editor for CNET.com and I'm standing next to Mitsubishi's 65 inch WD65831. This is a company who's top of the line, rear projection TV. One of the things I really like about the set though is that around the edge here, there's really very little wasted space. It's pretty much all picture as you can see. It's just a little strip of black on the sides and on the top and of course in the bottom here, you've got room for the speaker and right below there's a little area including buttons and some media card slot readers. This TV uses DLP technology. It's a 1080P display. Those are two high end formats, the 1080P is the highest resolution available now with rear projection TVs to get a nice sharp picture. And the set has the ability to control a lot of another AV gear in your system. It actually comes with these IR blasters. You plug into the back and you plug the IR blasters so they actually aim at your equipment. There's also a pair of controls that really affect the color of the picture. One is called perfect color, another called perfect tint allow you to really fine tune the picture quality in terms of color. Of course there's a range of other picture adjustments available on this set and the bulb is actually a lot more powerful than previous DLPs, so it can get really bright. So again Mitsubishi put everything they could into this television. On the back panel of this TV you'll find plenty of connectivity including three component video inputs, two HDMI inputs, a DVR input for connecting a PC digitally, a cable card slot as well as two fire wire ports. When we took this TV into the lab, we were generally impressed by its picture quality. It actually produced some of the deepest blacks we've seen this year on rear projection TVs. Also excellent sharpness on the picture and very good uniformity for a rear projection television. Color wasn't quite as accurate as we'd like to see out of the box. It definitely had some issues. We were able to adjust the color quite a bit using the perfect color and perfect tint controls that I mentioned before. But even after that the color wasn't perfect. Anyway that's a quick look at the Mitsubishi WD65831 and I'm David Katzmaier.
The superb picture quality of the 58-inch Panasonic TH-58PX600U makes it worth the price to huge-screen TV shoppers who want to go flat.
Superb picture quality and beautiful design place the Panasonic GT50 in the top tier of plasma TVs, but it's more expensive than others with similar performance.
The Vizio XVT3SV series' excellent picture quality, thoughtful design, scads of features, and reasonable price combine to make the best value among high-end LED-based LCD TVs today.
Its 3D is still a work in progress and its 2D picture quality comes up short of the best available, but the high-end Samsung UNC8000 series still offers superb features, solid performance, and unique style.
Panasonic's flagship TC-P54Z1 plasma sails far beyond most buyers' price range, but the yacht enthusiasts who can afford it will enjoy superb picture quality and style in a wireless package.
Slickly-designed and amply featured, the Samsung QX410 looks and plays the part of a more expensive high-end laptop, at a price that's a solid value.
Although blessed with a great feature package, the Mitsubishi WD-62628's picture quality falls short of the competition.
The Mitsubishi WD-65734's excellent feature set and highly adjustable picture help make up the difference, although its performance isn't the best among rear-projection HDTVs.
The Denon AVR-1910 is a fully featured midrange AV receiver with standout upconverted video quality, although it's held back by some subpar design issues and average sound quality.
Although a little expensive for a boy racer, the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR combines impressive performance and cabin tech, making a car that is extremely fun to drive.
