article imageMitsubishi launches first laser-powered big screen TV

Mitsubishi America has launched the world’s first laser-powered television according to Tech Radar. It consumes less than one-third of the power of an LCD TV, and one-fourth of that of a Plasma TV.
Mitsubishi will start selling its LaserVue L65-A90 today at major retailers.
The L65-A90 is a 65-inch rear-projection set that employs DLP technology, commonly found in projectors.
Engadget reviewed the set and said it produces stunning images compared to the best quality TV set currently on the market, the Pioneer Kuro.
As Engadget reports:
To top it off, the contrast is as good as any set he's (Gary Merson) tested -- yes including the Kuro. And the green people out there will be happy to know that it only uses about 96 watts -- in case your not keeping track at home, that's about one fourth the amount of power as most plasmas. So if you can live without semi-wall-mountable TV that is 10-inches deep, and demand the best in picture quality, then $7000 for a 65-inch LaserVue is probably sounding really good right about now.
The low power consumption for such a big screen TV is a big selling point, as it consumes one third of the power of a typical LCD TV and one quarter of that of a Plasma TV.
The new Laser-powered TV is also 3D ready, so you can play 3D video games on it.
