After a few months of waiting, Mitsubishi announced that it has started selling its laser-powered TVs.
The http://www.electronichouse.com/slideshow/products/4549/731 target=“_blank” title=“Mitsubishi LaserVue”>Mitsubishi LaserVue is a 65-inch beauty. The company says the energy-efficient unit boasts two times the color of most HDTVs—all while using less power. We love it because (in your best Dr. Evil voice) it uses frickin’ laser beams. Now that’s some cool technology.
“The consumer demand for LaserVue has simply exceeded our expectations and the product is a terrific example of Mitsubishi’s technology leadership within the home entertainment market. 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, Mitsubishi’s VP of marketing. “With operating power at approximately 135W, LaserVue is environmentally friendly, consuming approximately one-third the power of today’s LCD TVs, and one-fourth of plasma TVs. Living in today’s green-conscious environment, consumers can enjoy this color-brilliant, ground-breaking home entertainment product while being mindful of energy consumption at the same time.”
Other features include Smooth 120Hz technology, x.v. Color and a 1080p image packed into a slick cabinet that’s 10 inches thin. It’s also equipped with 3D-ready viewing capabilities.
The LaserVue is now available at select retailers for $6,999.
