Just received that same TV today. Hooked it up for 3D via my PS3 and it feels like I am at the movie theater (minus the noisy people, expensive snacks, and other annoyances). It is one heck of a TV.

Well I'm upgrading this week. My buddy is buying my 73" Mits for a grand, and I'm buying the new mits 65" 3D(WD-65638). I wanted to go a little smaller and the price is fantastic. The 3D on the Mitsubishis is fantastic. I should have it by next week. I helped my other friend set up his new 75" Mits a couple of weeks ago and it is fantastic. Anyone who thinks DLP is dead is so wrong. Also the best bang for your buck. Price for my new one is 1,099.00.

HDMI v.4 is required for 1080P 3D. The PS3 will only be capable of 1080i 3D at half-resolution (i.e. 540 X 1920). Therefore HDMI v.3 will suffice. And yes, I believe that Mitsubishi adapter will be required....I'm planning on getting one to go with my Sammy LED DLP.

That is not true - the PS3 produces a full 3D image from a Bu-ray disc at a full 1080p. For video games in 3D it outputs a full 720p.

The PS3 chip through the firmware upgrade is capable of 1.4 hdmi for the detection on processing of a 3D signal. The only thing the PS3 currently cannot do is HD - lossless audio when processing a 3D Blu-ray disc.

I got everything hooked up over the weekend. The adapter is hooked up with the PS3(HDMI) with the separate audio going to my receiver. The 3D is "phenomenal". It is up there with Panasonic as far as I'm concerned. It's definitely better looking than Sony and Samsung's 3D TV's.
Should have my standalone sony 3D bluray player hooked up this week.

Samsung DLPs however look just as good given that they share many of the same components

I'm very close to ordering an 82838 but I just can't pull the trigger yet. I have heard on AVS that supposedly Mits is rumored to be using/or could possibly be using a full HD 1080p 3D chip on next years sets rather than the halved resolution the sets now have with using checkerboard.
You wouldn't like me when I'm angry

I suggest looking at one of these TVs before you worry about checkerboading. You will be hard-pressed to even notice it.

After Amazon dropped the price a few times over a couple of weeks after I got the 65" 3D, the price wound up being 808.00. That is a steal for a 3D HDTV that size.
The wife and I are very happy with it. Awesome PQ with and without 3D.

My son just bought the WD65C10 for $789 new (shipping included) from Dell on eBay. The set can do 3D with the Mitsubishi 3DC-1000 kit.

I have a four year old 57833 Mits which along with the adapter kit puts out a fantastic 3D picture. The three models in the 833 series were the first "3D Ready" DPLs produced by the company. With the addition of a 3D player I have a great 3D experience without having to upgrade at the moment. Shows how forward-thinking Mitsubishi was even five years ago.

Yep, that's one of the reasons I stick with Mitsubishi. They make a fantastic TV and their prices beat everyone else.

A buddy of mine just experienced 3D for the first time on my set and loved it. He has a wd-57833 which requires an adapter. It is not an upgradable model. I remember seeing them for around $100 before being discontinued, but they are now being gauged like crazy. If anyone on here recently upgraded their set and do not require one of the three adapters 3da-1, 3dc-100s, or 3dc-1000, anymore please let me know. I felt bad telling him it would cost 500 now just to use his 3D feature. It would be nice to turn another over to our side.

I came here to ask about exactly that. I have a 60638 but never got around to picking up the Mitsubishi starter pack. I figured that now Mits has announced they're exiting the DLP TV business maybe the prices have come down a bit. I was completely wrong; they're selling for $150+ more now then when they were being sold new. Is it just all the holdouts like me finally getting around to buying them resulting in a spike in demand?
