CNET First Look
Mitsubishi WD-65734The 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.

It's very large and of course it's rear projection so it's not completely flat. Mitsubishi uses DLP technology. This TV also has 1080p resolution like most of the rear projection TV's out there. Styling wise it's really understated. I kind of like it, instead of the glossy black found on so many TV's these days it's actually a nice dark grey. Around the edge here there it is very little wasted space on the top and side. Right below the screen is a flip down door behind which you will find one component video input and one HDMI input which is rare to find in front of a TV. Around back there is three more HDMI inputs, 2 component video inputs, so it really does equal very good connectivity for a TV in this range. This set also has a great featured selection. There is the ability to adjust the color and tint controls with the PerfectColor and PerfectTint menus which we really put to good use when we calibrated this TV. There is also the ability to control other DVR in your system basically kind of like a universal remote control. There is a net command system you go in. use your existing device's remote and kind of shoot it at the screen to learn the commands. In terms of picture quality the Mitsubishi delivered a very good picture for its price range. We found a nice deep level of black. The color accuracy was also very good after we messed around with the perfect color and perfect tint controls. On the other hand we couldn't really do much with the color temperature which was relatively greenish red. So that was the one area that we'd like to see improved. The set also exhibited a few artifacts in the highest resolution 1080i and 1080p material that we haven't seen in other rear projection sets. Aside from that the WD 65 734 delivered a very good picture. It's a quick look at the Mitsubishi WD 65 734 and I'm David Katzmaier. ^M00:01:49 [ Music ]
