Irvine, Calif. — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's presentation products division implemented a new rebate promotion Tuesday for three of its top-selling home theater projectors -- the HC1600, HC5500 and the Diamond Series HC6500.
“Mitsubishi is committed to making our home theater projectors even more affordable, particularly in these tough economic times,:” stated James Chan, MDEA presentation products senior marketing director. “Our rebate program will be running through the end of the year, perfect for adding a little holiday cheer into the gift-giving spirit of the season as well as getting ready for championship football action.”
Under the promotion, the entry 720p HC1600 DLP projector will come with a $100 mail-in rebate plus a free lamp promotion valued at $495, totaling a $595 savings, the company said
The HC5500 LCD projector will see an increase of an existing rebate to $500 from its suggested retail price of $1,995. Mitsubishi said the deal is “the same as last year's holiday promotional price on Mitsubishi's entry-level level 1080p HD projector, but the HC5500 has upgraded features.”
Designed as one of the quietest projectors in the market at 19dBa, the HC5500 minimizes room distractions. The improved automatic iris function adds quicker black-to-light image shift and the contrast ratio has been increased to 10,000:1.
The new Diamond Series 1080p model HC6500, will come with a $200 mail-in rebate, for a total suggested retail price of $2,295. Mitsubishi is selling the unit only through such step-up retail outlets such as Best Buy's Magnolia Home Theater stores or through authorized Mitsubishi dealers. Mitsubishi's limited warranty coverage applies only to products purchased from authorized resellers.
