TVB Tech Alert: Mitsubishi LaserVue Price Drops
MULTIPLE LOCATIONS: The price of Mitsubishi’s laser-based TV sets is coming down. The company’s 65-inch L65A90 LaserView HDTV sets are now going for $6,499 on Amazon, a $500 discount from the introduction price of around $7,000. The LaserVues were unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January, 2008, and rolled out in the market last fall. They were said to have a greater depth of field, clarity and range of colors than comparable LCD and plasma sets. The L65A90 is a 1080p set with a 120 MHz refresh rate and four HDMI ports. Two remained in stock at Amazon yesterday; the model has been discontinued on CNET.
