You might not remember Mitsubishi's rear-projection LaserVue TVs, unless you purchased one and got stuck with a huge repair bill. If so, we hope you kept those receipts, because you may be entitled to a refund for any work done. Mitsubishi has settled a class-action lawsuit brought by consumers over picture problems, like darkened screen sections that appear after 8,000 to 10,000 hours of use. The legal firm handling the suit said that "if you spent your own money to repair certain problems with your LaserVue TV, you may be entitled to a repair, payment or reimbursement" of at least $500.

There was a time when Mitsubishi's DLP-powered models were much sought after, thanks to appreciably better black levels, contrast and color saturation than other TVs of the era. However, it had to cut prices of the rear-projection TVs -- which could easily run $6,000 -- to compete with new LCD and laser flat panels, and elected to leave the US market back in 2012. It likely hopes that the settlement will finally be the end of its US TV adventures.
