I'm sure shipping would have killed the deal.

Those of you near an American TV ( WI,IL IA,MI) they price match online prices. They also stock this TV in most locations however rebrand it as a MEVSA WD-82742. Hold your ground and demand a price match.

That one is nice but a little steep on the price. This 82" is a little more on par as price with a decent 1080p projector. I'll drool with you

A decent home theater projector will require quite a bit more work to set up than this DLP TV, but will give you a much better image. I've got a friend with a 65" Mitsubishi that looks washed out compared to most HDTVs, has a limited viewing angle, and was much less impressive, notwithstanding the higher resolution, than my old 720p projector and its 110" display. My old projector died and I picked up a cheap Acer H5360 720p unit from Newegg as a stopgap measure until the prices of 1080p 3D projectors drop (currently about $1300-1500) on sale for the princely sum of $420 after FatCash and I'd say that its image is still quite a bit better than my friend's Mitsubishi, which six years ago cost him about 10x as much as my Acer. The new Acer is a light cannon - I can watch it with all my lights on, even with the bulb in the econo. mode.
Obviously, a big DLP is a lot easier than a projector - once you wrangle it into position, all you need to do is plug it in, plus there are some rooms that just aren't suited for placement of a projector and screen. But projectors give a better image that can be seen from any angle and if your room allows for it, a significantly bigger image. Anyone interested in learning more about projectors should check out the projector sub-forum on AVSForum:
Aside from the extra effort in set up and the need for many of them to have a light-controlled room, the biggest problem with home theater projectors is the lack of display models out there for potential customers to demo and see in person. They take up a lot of space, plus give so much better bang-for-the-buck than regular HDTVs that they would take away a lot of HDTV customers and drive down profit margins at a lot of shops that rely on selling HDTVs. Higher end A/V stores may have one or two projectors set up in one of their smaller demo rooms and while they will typically be higher end ($5000 or more) projectors, the improvements in image quality from a basic model to a high-end one will be rather incremental and you'd get a decent idea of what even a current budget $700 1080p projector would look like if you've never seen a projector in action before.

This tech stepped right out of 1997. Why not buy a LCD instead? This is a PROJECTION television.

Uhhnhh .... Duhhhh...... Because an LCD this size costs 3-5x as much? Nice Marie Antoinette response.

I hear that 2012 was the last year that Mitsubishi would be making DLP TV's .
