Later this month Mitsubishi will roll out its first laser TV, it will be a 65" model and it will be sold for around $7,000.
Announce at CES in January of this year, the LaserVue series will be initially available as a 65” model this month. MSRP has been set as $6999, which is about the MSRP range of average 65” LCD TVs today (street prices for the segment range from about $3000 to $16,000, according to Pricegrabber.com). A 73” model will follow in the fourth quarter and should cost at least $10,000, if Mitsubishi maintains its pricing strategy.
The manufacturer claims that the LaserVue TVs offer about twice the color range of non-laser-powered LCD TVs. The 120 Hz LaserVues are promised to provide a brightness of 500 nits, 3D viewing capability and consume less than 200 watts, which would actually be only half of some other 65” LCD TVs. 65” plasma TVs can consume more than 500 watts.
