Mitsubishi's new WD-73738 television set is one of the most impressive large television sets around. This comes from how this set avoids some of the pitfalls that have been found with some other sets in the seventy-plus inch range.

One of the greatest problems that have been seen with some other television sets of this size comes from the blurring motions that can come with them. The WD-73738 works with a refresh rate of 120Hz, which is similar to what other sets of this size use. However, what this refresh rate works with a processor that utilizes Mitsubishi's Smooth 120 refresh function. This proved to be efficient in that the blurring of images on various programs, particularly sports programs, turned out to be very minimal.

The HD Color standard of x.v.Color is used on this set as well. This standard was co-designed by Mitsubishi and it clearly shows here. The colors on the screen are very vibrant and showcase a great deal of depth.

Getting the television set hooked up to various pieces of equipment proved to be easy to handle. The set features three HDMI inputs, two composite inputs, two audio outputs and to component video inputs. This is something that can truly work with a large variety of television sets.

A problem with some television sets of this size is that they use up too much electricity. Electrical measurements during the testing of this set found that the WD-73738 uses about 200 watts of energy when it is on. This is actually much less than the 300 watt averages that were found with some other sets of the same size.

The set is also able to support 3D-comptaible devices. These include disc players and other receivers. However, the materials that were required to get these devices to work proved to be tough to find. An HDMI cable was required for these items along with 3D glasses that were made with the WD-73738 in mind. The 3D effects proved to be worth it but it will take a while for anyone who wants to get these signals to work to get the equipment needed for them.

The set is worth about three thousand dollars in most places. This is a real surprise in that some other 73-inch sets on the market were closer to four thousand dollars in value. This value makes the Mitsubishi WD-73738 a set that stands apart from others.
