Mitsubishi 65-inch WD-737 RPTV reviewed: "most screen for the least money"
Rear projection HDTVs are still hanging around and for those looking for alot of screen for relatively little cash, they can be a good purchase option. Of course you can't mount them on the wall and you won't enjoy the picture quality pump through the screens of most LCD and plasma sets.
CNET's recent review of Mitsubishi's WD-737, a 65-inch rear projection monster, confirms the quality tradeoff here, but also confirms the picture quality is decent enough to recommend it if you are indeed looking for the most screen for the least money.
The WD-737 sports accurate color and has enough picture controls to adjust any issues you may have, it has a reasonable 3 HDMI ports and almost no bezel. On the other hand, the screen can be grainy and the blacks lighter than most HDTVs, but you'll find that with most rear projection sets left on the market.
Personally, I don't think I'd buy a RPTV these days, big and cheap or not. But if that's what you're looking for, the Mitsubishi WD-737 doesn't look half bad.
