When you hear the word “laser,” the first thought that probably comes to mind is a weapon that some super villainous madman is using to try to take over the world. Or an outer space battle between humongous starships. Or eye surgery. But you probably wouldn’t think about televisions.
Until now. The new Mitsubishi LaserVue 65″ Black DLP HDTV, now available at Abt, utilizes laser beams to produce rich, complex colors and an immersive depth of field, delivering two times the color of many of today’s HDTVs. On top of that, the LaserVue is environmentally friendly, consuming approximately one-third the power of LCD TVs and about one-fourth the power of plasma TVs.
“Bringing laser TV to market is a significant industry accomplishment, and we’re very proud to be the only TV manufacturer to date that has delivered on the promise of a laser-driven TV,” said Frank DeMartin, vice president of marketing for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America.
While the LaserVue doesn’t come cheap (as in, it costs nearly $7000), the depth of the images can astound you. “The new LaserVue TV is very impressive,” says Abt sales specialist Rafael Pena. “We did a side-by-side comparison with other top HDTVs, and the LaserVue by far provided the best reproduction of colors. This TV must be viewed in person to be believed.”
