Laser TV News 06 Jul 2009 08:42 pm
Several sites are reporting the average retail price of Mitsubishi’s 65-inch LaserVue laser-powered Laser TV have been slashed by $500. (Update: Amazon.com has for a few weeks offered varying discounts, so perhaps the ultimate in high-tech big screen pleasure is on the verge of becoming a little more affordable.)
Debuting in 2008, the LaserVue was billed as a hip 3-D-ready TV boasting a color range twice as broad as a typical HDTV, while using less energy than a plasma or LCD HDTV. Sales have obviously been disappointing, and production numbers for the Laservue’s first two full quarters of sale have not been publicly released. Given the economic climate, the production plans of a previously announced 73-inch model ‘Vue have been stalled as Mitsubishi re-evaluates the market.
