Bottom Line:   
Had the best contrast and sharpness of any set I looked at, even beating the Pioneer Elite. The stretch mode is not as good however as the Pioneer and I almost didn't buy the Mitsubishi because of this since most of what I watch is 4:3 format.
The sound quality is good for a stand alone set and I usually don't need to turn on my A/V receiver. This is also the best looking cabinet finish of all the sets that I looked at. The only problems I have with the Mitsubishi is there is only 1 set of HD composite inputs, and there is no 720p support. There is also the VGA input (Very cool !) that did a very good job as a temporary computer display.

This review is for the WS-65908

I have been very happy with this product. I have not run AVIA on it but I can tell the red push is only about in the +5 range. You can hardly notice it. If I didn't know that the problem existed with Mitsubishi's I would never have noticed at all.

The picture is crisp and clear. No complaints. In fact, I like the picture just as much as the Pioneer Elite.

I am currently running the following components:

Denon 2802 Receiver
Zenith DTV 1080 STB
Toshiba DVD (forgot model, non progressive :(
Sony VCR gold plus (forgot model)
Sony CD player (forgot model)
Cerwin Vega AT-12 Tower Speakers (Need 6.1 surround speaker upgrade )

I get a crystal clear picture on satellite with this TV. Even VCR is decent. Non progressive DVD picture is great.

The Zenith 1080 is a great piece to go with this TV. The line doubler in the Zenith and the stretch modes are great.

Bottom Line:   
This had the best picture, even with analog signals. With a progressive scan DVD player, this has the best picture (unless you want to spend 15000 and get a WD650000, which is just fantastic), that I have seen. Got a great deal from ABT.

Bottom Line:   
Was set to buy platinum plus, but got a rocking deal on the diamond.
Very happy with this television. Looked at Toshiba, Pioneer,
and Sony. The Mits had the brightest, sharpest picture.
Very clean, solid, cabinet; on good rollers.
Would definitely recommend.
If unable to swing the price, check out the platinum plus.

HD upgrade for Mitsubishi WS-55908

I'm not an AV nerd - just someone who likes to watch a good picture! :smilewinkgrin: I'm hoping someone can recommend a compatible HD receiver for an old (2002?) Mitsubishi WS-55908 TV. Mitsubishi doesn't make the HD-1080 (vintage 2003?) which was the unit made for that purpose. :idea: ... Read More »
