3D Technology Checklist

This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use our checklist below to ensure that you have everything you need. If you have any questions or want to learn more about 3D, we invite you to visit 3D 101--our center for everything 3D. To get started with 3D, please ensure that you have:

A Display

The first--and most important--item you'll need is a 3D-ready display--whether it be a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays usually have a higher processing power than older models as they need to display one image for each eye to create a 3D effect.

A Source

While your display is ready for 3D playback, you still need a device to read 3D content (i.e., a movie or a show). This source can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3.


In order to watch 3D, you will need to get some 3D content. This 3D content will come from the source mentioned above in the form of a 3D program, movie, or game. Please ensure that your 3D movies are in the Blu-ray 3D format, as this new format will provide the best 3D experience.

3D Glasses

All 3D HDTVs on the market require Active Shutter glasses to create the 3D effect. You will need to buy one pair of glasses for each viewer. Also make sure that the Active Shutter glasses you buy are compatible with your display--for example, buy the glasses from the same brand as your 3D HDTV.

HDMI Cable

To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a hgh-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation--with bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second)--will be able to carry the 3D signal without any loss of quality.
If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.

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

I purchased this TV to replace a Panasonic 65" Plasma TV. First of all let me say how delighted I am with Amazon's customer service and policies, when I first ordered the TV I mistakenly ordered the non-3D version of it, and did not realize my mistake until after it had been shipped to me. However, Amazon's policies on TV purchases made it possible for me to cancel the order and receive a complete refund! As far as the TV itself is concerned, the main drawback I have found is it's relative dimness when compared to the plasma TV it replaced. I really found it necessary to only use this TV in a darkened room to really appreciate it. The other drawbacks I found were 1) The TV was completely dead upon original installation, and even though I was using professional installers it took them an hour of messing with it trying to get a picture, before they called Mitsubishi customer service who advised them to unplug the TV, wait a minute or two, and thn plug in again to allow the internal computer to reset itself. Secondly, I am using the TV with a Sony PS3 as it's 3D input, and after hooking everything up, I was unable to get a 3D image. When I called Mitsubishi, they told me it was necessary to return the PS3 to Sony for a firmware update. This was not true. After reading reviews of other 3D TVs I found it was only necessary to properly set up the display properties in the Playstation settings menu. Once all this was done, I found the overall experience to be absolutely breathtaking with both Blu-Ray 3D movies and the Avatar 3D game. I am using the Mitsubishi shutter glasses and the overall experience is much better than with the red/blue or polarized glasses you are given in the theaters showing 3D movies. I recommend this TV if you want the size and are able to darken the room you are using it in. I have never watched a 3D plasma set so I cannot comment on whether their 3D is as impressive as on this set.

I had this set delivered 11/6/10 from Walt's TV(ask for Miles, he's a real pro). I was replacing a Mitsu WD-65833, and I wanted the bigger size for gaming/watching blu-rays. It's a great experience, there's nothing as immersive an 82" screen for Call of Duty Black Ops or epic blu-rays(Braveheart, Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan, Lord of the rings, etc.). If you're never going to have a front projector w/ a separate home-theater room, this is da bomb baby. I'm the envy of all my friends, believe me. Do the top of the line Panasonic plasmas have a better picture out of the box? Yes. So do what I did-get it professionally calibrated by an ISF certified technician($300-$400). Since then I've no regrets whatsoever. The now near-perfect picture quality makes this set a must buy for gaming/home theater enthusiasts! BTW, I was able to talk Walts TV down even lower than their price listed here on Amazon which at this time is $3200...

UPDATE: Many people ask me what stand I use, as picture height is a concern w/ a screen this size. I'm very satisfied with & recommend the Plateau CRX-2V64. You can google it or try Stands Online.

This Tv was an upgrade from a Toshiba 65" Rear Projection. All I can say is WOW! It is amazing in every way. I havn't a single complaint, and I am so glad that Mitsubishi has a firmware update making it compatable with almost all the 3D players out there without the converter box.

I am using the Oppo bdp-93 Blu-ray player for Blu-ray and 3D content and it is just amazing. The color is excellent and you feel as if you are right there in the action. The Mitsu..82838 supports 36 bit "Deep Color" as does my Oppo bdp-93 Blu-ray. With them both set to 36bit "Deep Color" it is truily a "Breathtaking" experience. Watch Avatar with this player and this Tv and you will see what I mean. TV's like these are never done justice in the store because they aren't usually set up right and most are placed on stande then on a shelf and you end up looking up at them making the picture less pleasing than at proper seating level.
I personally don't like the LED tv's at the store. Most Tv stores have the Tv's refresh rate turned up so high that every movie that I have ever seen on them looks fake. When a picture is literally clearer than reel life it takes the "realism" out of the movie. Its a bit hard to explain..maybe its just me :)

I purchased the optional WiFi adaptor and It works great, I just hope they add YouTube support to their list.
The 16 speaker sound bar on the Diamond searies gives programing an excellent surround affect. I also like the fact that the Tv has a sub input on the back so you can get that needed bass lift. The Tv has the option of using the Tv's sound bar as the center channel speaker in a surround setup via the "Line Out" outputs.
Included with the Tv is a Microphone to calibrate the sound bar.
