I assume irkuck haven't been following Stringer Weirder things happen when management keep "hoping" rather than cut loss. See Kodak. The corollary is to see how drastic panny is cutting their loss.

I think Sharp is likely to be profitable on PnL basis for displays in FY2013 end March. I assume you think otherwise.

Keep in mind, the 2011 70" models (non-Elite) didn't have perfect uniformity either, despite being backlit.

The backlit so called units have all the issue's edge lit units have except for flash lighting. They have been out for more than a couple years, the problems would be fixed if they could be by now. I would say " It is, what it is ".

If the 70" 945 series "Elite Lite" is due in summer, when would sharp normally set the MSRP? Late spring?

Does anyone have the physical dimensions of the LC-52LE640U available?

I've searched around but cannot find published anywhere yet.

Thanks!

Are you still standing by the 90" release for this summer? Any thoughts on an MSRP?

I was at BBuy today and saw the 60' 640. Picture was in standard mode and I saw absolutely no flashlighting or clouding. I then put it in torch mode and ........nada! I was amazed there was no issues with flashlighting or clouding like last years model. Also there was a sony 55nz720 on the side and also was in torch mode. That tv's viewing angle is horrible compared to this sharp. It immediately got washed out but this sharp's viewing angle is ages better. IMHO this sharp is a great budget 60 tv. Oh and the sound was improved compare to last years.

No new info, MSRP about 10K, sell for about 25% off on the street, that is a pure guess.........

I actually think it will be better in some respects, equal in most others if not all. Then shortly thereafter the 2012 Elites will again leapfrog to the front of the pack and the top of the price and quality pack.

Stuck up, half witted, scruffy looking, nerf herder.
Double True!

Link to the 70, 60, and 52 inch 640U and 6400U series operation manual. Have yet to see a review of this item or pictures of the panel in a real world environment - might head over to Costco to see the LC-70LE6400u. I see that the major differences between the 6400U and the 640U are AquoMotion 240 for the 6400U. Looks like the price is the same for either 70 inch panel at this time. Neither are Quattron panels at this price point. There is now a dedicated Netflix button on the remote, the SmartCentral apps look better, edge lit (hope that eliminates clouding issues), and both sets are lighter than the 632 series - 86 lbs with the TV and stand, 79.4 lbs without the stand.

Thanks Chris. Sure hope you're wrong on the MSRP, though. Even a $7,500 street price will make me look at the 80" instead. An extra ten inches isn't worth $3,500 - $4,000 to me.

Last year 60 and 70 inch 632 series had a dynamic contrast ration of 6,000,000 to one. this years 60 and 70 inch 640 series have a 4,000.ooo to one. Any thoughts about this? (picture quality, sharpness effects?)

Ouch. I was hoping for about $5500 street... After going to a theater for the first time since 2004, and coming home to my 70" it felt TINY.

I was hoping that the 90" would have been only about double the cost of my 70"

My thoughts are you should ignore every single quoted spec-sheet "dynamic contrast" number. They are entirely useless.

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. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)
