    Yea and the USA had Mitsubishi appliances like tv's back in the 1980s. My grandpa had a piper tripacer and I even have the engine manual still, and the used Piper plane used to terrify my aunt and mom apparently

    A good friend of mine worked in a small Ontario town called Midland and that's where the Mitsubishi cathode ray television tube factory for all of the western hemisphere was located. IIRC Mits made the largest consumer 4:3 TV tube. It was either 29, 31, or 33"

    sony had a larger trinitron but I think it was 16:9

    Midland eh, and Allison, Ontario has built how many Honda Civic's and Honda motors. I am not surprised about past Mitsubishi manufacturing in Ontario. Not surprised one bit. That is interesting, and I bet they were good-sized TV's for their time.

    They were excellent tvs. Mitsubishi had a trinitron like approach and they called it Diamond Vision. I owned a 20" Mitsubishi tv and was really sad to part with it. Those were the days. You had all the major Japanese electronics firms making tvs: Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, Sanyo, Mitsubishi, JVC, Sharp and occasionally Phillips.
