From the Manufacturer (April 7, 2009)
With picture performance that outpaces today's smaller flat panels, Mitsubishi's 73-inch WD-73737 offers a larger than life, intensely vivid viewing experience. In screen sizes ranging from 60" to 82", Mitsubishi Home Theater TVs define the large screen entertainment category by offering incomparable value and stronger performance than smaller flat panel televisions.

Picture performance that outpaces other flat panels. Click to enlarge or view inputs.

1080p High-Definition DLP Display System
The WD-73737 uses Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing technology for rear-projection TVs to create the picture you see on screen. All images are displayed at 1080p, and the TV uses Plush 1080p 5G to convert lower-resolution signals to 1080p for display. It'll also accept 1080p original signals and maintain them at 1080p through all processing until displayed.

3D Ready
All Mitsubishi 1080p DLP HDTVs are 3D Ready. This feature lets you experience the new 3D technologies applied to many recent movies and video games. Immerse yourself in your favorite video game, movie, or sporting event displayed in 3D.

16:9 Widescreen Picture Format
Enjoy a full theatrical experience in the comfort of your home. View pictures as film directors intended them. Digital TV broadcasts, DVDs and newer video game consoles support this widescreen format.

Integrated HDTV Tuner
The WD-73737 features an internal HDTV tuner able to receive both over-the-air HDTV broadcasts (received via an antenna) and non-scrambled digital cable broadcasts, including non-scrambled HDTV cable programming.

Ultra-thin frame means more screen in less space.

Smooth 120Hz
Mitsubishi's Smooth 120Hz Film Motion takes 120Hz technology to the next level with dejudder for film originated content. In the conversion of film-to-video for display, 24Hz artifacts can be seen in slow panning scenes. Smooth 120Hz Film Motion eliminates this artifact for smooth, crisp, fast and slow action content.

6-Color Processor
Mitsubishi's 6-Color Processor processes and produces images with six different colors--instead of the traditional three--to display a wider range of colors, brighter colors and whiter whites.

PerfectColor replaces the traditional "tint" control on TVs, giving users far more control over their on-screen picture. Adjust six colors independently to dial in the perfect picture.

High-Definition Video Inputs

  • Three Component Video Inputs.
    Also called Y/Pb/Pr inputs, these inputs receive standard analog video formats of 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i high-definition signals. This provides a high level of flexibility when connecting DVD players/recorders, cable boxes, and satellite receivers.

  • Three HDMI Inputs.
    These inputs accept digital 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video signals plus PCM digital stereo signals. The HDMI inputs can also accept a variety of PC signals and resolutions. These inputs support HDMI 1.3 Deep Color (up to 36 bits) and the x.v.Color extended color gamut. Used with an adapter, these HDMI inputs also accept compatible digital DVI video signals. HDMI inputs provide additional high-performance, high-definition connections for maximum flexibility in your choice of home theater products. The HDMI inputs are HDCP copy-protection compatible.

Easy Connect Auto Input Sensing
Easy Connect Auto Input Sensing automatically recognizes when you plug in a device and prompts you to assign a name to it. The TV ignores any unused inputs, so the result is an uncluttered menu where you can easily find and select connected devices by name.

HDMI Control
HDMI devices with Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) capabilities may be compatible with the TV's HDMI Control feature. Compatible devices can receive control signals through the HDMI connection, allowing the TV's remote control to operate some functions of these devices.

ENERGY STAR Compliance
This TV meets ENERGY STAR efficiency standards in all operating modes.

HDTV Size chart
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience. If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.
  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

When it comes to TVs in the living room, bigger is always better so, when time came to replace our 61" Samsung DLP I had no idea what my next TV was going to be, other than it was going to be bigger and that, of course, I was going to afford it. Mitsubishi's WD-73737 was the easy winner and this is why:

- SIZE - well, 73" is bigger than 61", right? As far as I know, there aren't too many LCD or plasma TVs this big, at least not anything that I can afford. Our living room is rather large - it's really most of our first floor (open style architecture) so it helps to have a big screen. Mitsubishi makes an 82" model but I had also to consider...
- PRICE - we have a clear winner here. When it comes to price/size ratio, DLP's are by far the least expensive option.
- ENERGY EFFICIENCY - according to my research, the WD-73737 burns about 265W when 'on' (this includes the 180W lamp). By comparison, a 70" LCD needs 540-630W to operate.
- 3D CAPABILITY - it's a potential plus. Mitsubishi does not guarantee that its TV will be compliant with whatever 3D standard is about to emerge but... it might.

Of course, not everything is perfect so, here are the potential 'minuses':

- LAMP - when it comes to 'cost of ownership', we must factor in the DLP's lamp. The Mitsubishi manual expects its lamp to last for about one year but our Samsung was still okay after 2 years with the original lamp so, we shall see. A replacement for this model, direct from Mitsubishi is $99 and I will get a free one under warranty if the original needs replacement before one year. Given the great energy savings when compared to an LCD TV, I am not too worried about having to replace the lamp from time to time.
- BULK - this set is over 90 lbs. heavy and over 12" at its thickest.

Just bought a 73" 737series a couple of weeks ago. Was considering 65" but went with the 73" - GREAT Decision. The picture is fantastic - even my wife who isn't into TV very much thinks it is great. The price of the replacement lamp is not significant every 2 - 3 years when you consider the quality and price of this TV. If you have the room for it I highly recomend this TV - Great value.

This TV is great. I was looking at LCD and DLP TVs, and the DLP offer bigger screens and the same great picture at a lower price. HDTV, Blu-Ray, DVD, etc all look great on this TV. 1080p resolution is amazing, I have an older 52 inch HDTV, which displays 1080i and this DLP looks 10 times better.

Out of the box, this DLP is very color rich, especially in the reds and yellows, which I easily corrected using the PerfectPicture Menu. I toned down all colors by 5 and the red and yellow by 10. This made the picture look a lot better.

I am using various types of connections on it (HDMI, Component, and Composite) and each input delivers a great picture. I use the HDMI to connect my PS3, component cables connect my Dish receiver and DVD player, and the composite cable connects the Wii. This TV automatically recognizes when devices are connected and allows you to name each connnection.

You can't go wrong with this one.

I have owned this TV for 1 year and 7 months(purchase date Dec 6 2009). The lamp blew out today July 20th 2011. The warranty last for one year. when I called the company they said that I needed to purchase a replacement lamp at the cost of $99 dollars plus Shipping and Handling. I asked if that lamp had a warranty after I pay $99 dollars the tech person told me yes but only 90days(3 Months). My next question to the tech person what is the average life of the lamp that people were calling in to replace and she said that the lamps blow up(fails) as early as 9 months(270 days) and the longest it will last if not used everyday is 2 years at most if your lucky(Their words). So if you buy this product get ready to pay $100 in maintenance every 9 months. I paid $2100 for this TV. My girlfriend bought a 47 inch Sharp LCD for $800 1/3 of what I paid and the picture isnt as grainy as my 737 series Mitsubishi 73 inch DLP HDTV, its actually clearer. This was the worst buy I have ever done. If I had it to do it over i wouldnt have spent the equivalent of a down payment of a car on this TV, I would find the biggest LCD or LED that was not a Mitsubishi. Mitsubishi customer care is horrid too, they do nothing for you but take your money and tell you how a lamp is a retail product for consumers. After reading that they have stop making lamps for their older models I was not surprised, just sad that I will most likely have to throw this TV away in another 3years too. If you like hidden cost and bad customer service then buy the 737 series Mitsubishi 73 inch DLP HDTV. If I saw someone stealing the 737 series Mitsubishi 73 inch DLP HDTV off the back of a truck I would stop them. I am 28 years old and Mitsubishi has lost me as a customer for life. Hope this review helped.

This TV is awesome! It has an excellent picture (although I did upgrade to HD after I bought it). Why have such a beautiful TV in SD anyway? The picture in SD was not bad, although any text on the screen did appear a little fuzzy. The graphics look awesome on the XBOX, PS3 and even the Wii.

Setup is a breeze. The TV recognizes anything you plug into it immediately and switching from one device to another is easy.

When I bought mine, I also purchased a 5 year protection plan. From what I have heard and read, the warrenty from Mitsubishi is not that great and reguires you to ship the TV to them if anything goes wrong. I sure would hate to try to box up something this size, so I opted for a plan where if anything goes wrong, they will come to me and fix it. Furthermore, I get all the lamp replacements I need during the 5 years for free (lamps last from 6 months to 2 years). Two lamp replacements alone will pay for my warrenty.

One thing that I was told about the DLP's is you have to be careful when powering on and off. I was told that once the TV is turned off the lamp will need about 15 minutes to cool before it can be powered on safely. Powering on too quickly will shorten the lamp life.

I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase, but I would definately recommend getting a better warranty with bulb replacement. The only thing better than watching this TV is knowing that if anything goes wrong in the next five years, it will get taken care of.

In fact, after 2 weeks of owning this model we bought one in the 60" size for our den!
