Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?
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

UPDATE 12/07/13: Here I am with this set another year older and still working beautifully with the original bulb. AMAZING!! UPDATE 10/17/12: Well, I just thought I'd commemorate entering my third year with my Mitsu HDTV and it's still working like a CHAMP!!! Still using my original bulb and still getting that same excellent picture for an average of 11-12 hours each and every day!

I'd like to make two points clear at the outset. One, I have always been a bit suspicious of glowing reviews I've read out here, suspecting somehow they had been written by people associated with the company producing the product being reviewed. And two, although I have purchased other less expensive items online, I have always had a great fear of buying large ticket items, such as this television set, online.

I had resisted buying an HDTV mainly because I wasn't comfortable with the drawbacks inherent in each type of set, e.g. burn-in for plasma sets and dropped pixels for LCD sets, plus the fact that the picture on most of these sets gradually deteriorated as each day went by. My current set had been a 45 inch Mitsubishi DLP television, whose picture was still as sharp and clear as the first day I turned it on back in 2001, despite the fact that the original lamp had never been replaced. So I was definitely a Mitsubishi fan, despite some of the problems I'd read about with certain of their earlier DLP high definition models.

But the thing which really motivated me to finally purchase a Hi-Def set was the day I watched my first 3D demonstration at a Best Buy store. It was amazing and all I could think of after that was watching my favorite sports teams in 3D. So I began a long and very arduous research process, mainly online.

I'm no videophile, but I know what I like, and I like this TV.

First of all, I've read a lot of feedback on the other 73" models before I decided to go with this later version.

Among the complaints I read about the earlier models were that "the sound was insufficient, the remote was hard to figure out, the on-screen menus were hard to figure out, and the picture was too bright".

Well, the picture was too bright out of the box. I have to wonder if it's because it was made in Japan, and the picture was adjusted by Japanese. I simply went to an HDMI message forum and found some settings from users of previous models. I used the simplest settings I could find, then tweaked to my taste. Took all of about 10 minutes total.

Regarding the sound, my "great room" measures 33' x 18', with a very high ceiling. It fills the room just fine with the factory speakers when we're watching AT&T U-verse Cable. I had to crank it all the way up to work with my Sony Blu-Ray player, watching "3 Days of the Condor". So maybe the problem others have isn't with the TV, but with the source audio, be it the player or the media.

The remote is simpler than many others I've seen, and the menus on-screen are easily navigated. The only complaint I have, as others have mentioned, is that the remote isn't lit. I think that's silly, since everyone likes watching movies in a darkened room.

The Mitsubishi MB-S73A stand fits perfectly, just as the PDF for this TV's specs says on Mitsubishi's website.

Everyone who's visited is amazed at the picture on this TV, even in SD. Some friends and family were over when I played "3 Days of the Condor", and they were absolutely stunned at the HDMI picture. I can't wait to see a modern film on this TV.

Just received the newest version of the 73 inch DLP yesterday. I was a little skeptical coming from a plasma TV to a DLP which I almost bought last year but the picture at the store just wasn't as crisp as the plasma. Well, I hooked up the TV last night using the cable/HD 1080i. Unbelievable is all I can say. I watched the NFL game, I felt like I was on the field, HD was so nice. I called the cable company to make sure my settings were correct on the box and was informed that they now have a 1080p HD box which I will be going to get Saturday.

3D in my area right now only has ESPN which I will check that out this weekend. This TV does not need a 3D adapter. Everything is in the TV with this version, one of the reasons I bought this TV. All you have to do is change the input to 3D, turn to the station and put the glasses on which came with my TV. I have heard that 3D sports are something to see. Also, this TV comes with 100 internet applications, including AP news, FB, Vudu, weatther to name a few, which will run as a ticker on the bottom of the screen if you choose, haven't set this up yet but can't wait. I am using the Sony blu-ray player with this TV, which will play 3D movies as well. Needless to say, I am very impressed with this TV and I haven't even tapped into all of the features it comes with. If you have any doubts, don't, you won't regret purchasing this TV, I have had 50 inch plasma and LCD and for the price and the features, so worth it. If this was a LED TV you would be looking at arund $10,000. Very impressed....
