Summary: Most people will know that you should have plenty of room to view this TV properly. I bought this on behalf of my mother, who put it in a 20' by 20' room. Its way too big for even that room. The lamp does take a few seconds to warm up and give proper light/color but that is to be expected. No problems after a year of ownership.
Summary: I bought the Mits WD82738 model in June 2011. Hooked it up to PS3 via HDMI. Worked great but then... Just before July 2012 ie within 1 year the display would not power up. The LED kept blinking Green. Mits support replaced the Mother board, since it was within 1 year. The TV worked for another 3 months, then the Green Blinking LED with No display started again. I had Squaretrade via a local technician replace the Motherboard again (2nd time).
Summary: If anyone is on the fence about purchasing this tv get off of the fence and purchase this tv. I ordered from PaulsTv and the shipping was quick. The picture quality is great just a step under my plasmas when the lights are on. If u are looking for a great tv and don't want to spend your life savings then this is the tv for you. I would recommend this tv to anybody that's not afraid of DLP technology.
Summary: Well, I waited awhile before leaving a review on this product. Although it has only been about 10mos I feel the need to say that this is probably the most awesome TV that I have ever owned. IMO, the picture is so rich it can rival some LED/LCD monitors. You also have a feature rich menu to enhance or tone down the picture. The only negative on this set is the sound which to me is not a big deal and somewhat to be expected with any modern DLP, LCD or plasma.
Summary: I received my Mitsubishi 82 inch 3-D DLP 840 Series today and I must say I couldn't be happier with this set. I upgraded from the 73 inch model and was worried that this set may not be as bright as the 73 inch one because they use the same wattage bulb. Well it turns out that this set is actually brighter and sharper than the 73 inch model.
Summary: My family could not be happier with this 82-inch TV set. Excellent quality. Loaded with features including 3-D capacity, and The price: nobody can get a better bargain than purchasing this giant TV set.
Summary: I have had my Mitsubishi 82740 for a month now. This TV is awesome and if you have any doubt's about it don't. The factory preset picture is ready for perfect HD viewing. If you tell people you are buying a DLP television they curl there nose at you, but when they see this picture quality they are jealous!! Final thoughts have no worries when purchasing this TV it is as good as any LCD,LED or plasma out there.
