some of the non-elite sharps have a full array but not local dimming

LG LED+ = Edge Lit with local Dimming

Are full array with local dimming REALLY that good? I looked at the Sony HX950. Yeah its nice, but $4000 nice? I dont know. I saw the Sharp 70" 847 series and those seem pretty decent for $2500 (online). I did not see any blurring issues with that. I know its edge lit LED....... but its still 70". I contacted Sharp to ask them about the 9 series release delay and they said they had no more information about its release date. I have been debating on a 65-70" LED TV and don't know if I should wait till late 2013. Seems like Sharp is not releasing any new TVs.

The full-array TVs have their own issues and addressing those issues is what makes them so expensive.
I was content with Cold Cathode Fluorescent technology as backlight because I accept the limitations of LCD.
I have the Sharp 70" 845 edge-lit and am quite happy with it. The light source is heavy on the blue, so calibration
has to be done artfully to get a natural picture. The extra yellow pixes seems to help in overall brightness.
My own edge-lit doesn't have any flashlighting or ghosting to speak of and has great uniformity.
I think the full-array sets are a stop-gap on the way to a system without backlighting.
Meantime, I accept LED technology with slightly elevated black levels and I'm content.
Mine was almost $3k a year ago, so it sounds like the prices are steadily falling...

Some of the new Sharp sets have a better processor in them, and support for flash and html in the browser app. The 9 series is vaporware - 8 is top of the line as snipped from the press release below... Sometimes when products reach end of life status, the prices go up on old inventory. Take a look at stuff from Vizio - if you don't need 3D, their 70 inch panel is a good value. I'm not too crazy about the silver frame.
