Wow under 3k for 70 inches... Would need formal reviews. Sharp banding issues at 70 inches would be a killer... But tempting none the less

Wow this is cheaper than ANY of us expected. This is real deal or teaser?? I don't stay in US so not sure how confident we can be on Sears' pricing.

The era of huge size is upon us

Sooo....I'm reading the Sharp LE732U description and one part says "full array" and then the other says "edge lit" So, which is it? Either way it is an awesome deal if it performs decently.

I noticed that too. Acording to this http://www.sharpusa.com/AboutSharp/N..._Quattron.aspx it's full array. Can't wait to see one in person.

The price seems to be right in line with the link that kb4all posted on the previous page of this thread.

sorry my bad, the link didn't work so I didn't bother with my iPhone. Essentially you are saying this price is for real.

Been roaming a few threads and for sure no one expected the price to be this low. We were looking around $5000

I hope something along these lines comes out soon. I have had a Infocus 7205 and 82" Stewart Firehawk screen for atleast 5 years that I would love to replace with something close in size. I think I would be much happier with something hanging on the wall than a huge DLP sitting on a stand.

On the one hand a $3,200 msrp on the LC-70LE732 is a very competitive price point. However there is a part of me that is wondering what corners sharp had to cut to get that 70" lcd priced around $3,200?

Not sure why people are surprised by the Sharp, when they told me -- who they didn't know from a hole in the wall -- that pricing at CES in January (and I posted it in this thread).

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

Same here....but I wouldn't be surprised if it were closer to $5K.

What in hell happened to the Vizio 72" LCD?

Most sites say they will sell the Sharp for 3k or less. Why try to talk up that price?

Here is a new power source to run your 70" LCD or your 92" DLP.

"Italian scientist Andrea Rossi claims to have invented a small cold fusion reactor that can produce electricity at a projected cost below any other new construction power source. Go to http://news.google.com/ and enter the name Andrea Rossi for the latest developments in this thrilling saga, as gripping as a Agatha Christie mystery. Is Rossi a fraud and a scoundrel, or is he the greatest inventor in human history? We should know by the summer of 2011 when Rossi says his tiny reactors will go on sale. The claimed low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) is said to fuse hydrogen gas to nano-nickel powder forming copper, accomplished with the aid of pressure and still secret catalysts. During a public demonstration on January 14th, the Rossi reactor is said to have produced 12,400 watts of heat with an input of just 400 watts, a gain of 31 times input power. In a second demonstration, observed by Dr. Giuseppe (Joseph) Levi, a nuclear physicist associated with the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics, the Rossi reactor reportedly produced a minimum of 15 kilowatts of heat continuously for 18 hours. See news of the Rossi reactor factories in Miami and Greece, and more technical details."

"If this is a fraud, Rossi's company will go out of business as soon as the first reactor is sold. Rossi's business plan makes no sense unless the reactor actually works. Rossi claims that using just one pound of nickel can unleash the same amount of energy as burning 517,000 pounds of oil (1 gram nickel = 517 kilograms oil). To put it another way, one pound of nickel could replace around 1,590 barrels of average weight crude oil (325 pounds per barrel), which would cost $159,000 at $100 a barrel. I suggest we wait for MIT or Oak Ridge National Laboratory to confirm this invention before uncorking the champagne, but keep your fingers crossed."

Meanwhile, for the home owner who wants high efficiency now, and not in 15 years, there are ground source heat pumps that are very efficient because the source for heating or cooling is the ground, which typically stays at 55 degrees F 3-4 feet below the surface. So, rather than trying to wring out the heat from 30 degree F air during the winter, a ground source has the much easier task of pulling the heat from 55 degree F earth. Same with cooling, much easier to generate cool air for heating from 55 degree F earth than from 98 degree F air.

The cost of a ground source heat pump ranges from $10,000-$15,000 and it will take about 5 years to recoup the extra initial investment versus using oil heat.

I'm in the 3D is not ready for public consumption camp, so the thing that will matter to me is PQ.

If the LC-70LE732 does a good job in that area I'll be all over it.

Surprised Sharp does not have the 70's up on their site yet - there are some discrepencies between BB and Sears links (2 vs. 3 speakers, Ethernet vs. built in WiFi).

Also noticed on Sharp's site for the '11 models that are listed - there seems to be equivalent size/feature 'quad pixel' sets with the only difference being:

'30 U models' : 120 Hz 'fine motion'
'32 U models' : 240 Hz 'Aqua motion' (worth it?)
'35 U models' : 3D (self explanatory)

Ultraslim design 3-1/2" deep

is this one Local Dimming as well?

regular customer don't know too much about full LED/EDGE LED, so they will probably still go for samsung.

Yeah, It aint pretty like a samsung but it is full array LED which is why I suspect it is thick. Flush mounted against the wall though, it won't be a big deal and at 70 inches, people won't be looking at how "thick " it is

How thick do you think a huge 70" TV should be?

They are probably thinner than the 42" plasma when first introduced.
