I don't think they had the bang-for-buck demographic in mind with this set.

I couldn't afford it either but I still think 90" for $7k street is awesome.

I bought my 80-632U for 4.5K the week they arrived in Vancouver BC. List was 5.5K. Got it from Visions. No regrets.

Keep in mind that 10" equals about 37% more screen area than an 80"!!
It's not directly comparable, of course, but I remember well the thrill of going from a 42" to a 52" some years ago. Huge difference.

That's another thing that gets lost on most people - screen area increases practically exponentially as diagonal increases. I.e. 80" panel having roughly equal screen area of two 55" screens. So while on paper the diff between 80" and 90" only looks like 10", you're getting more screen area than what you get in the jump from a 70" to 80".

Also, when you add 37% to the cost of a $5k 80" screen, you arrive at $6850, so the Sharp 90" having an expected street price of around $7k means Sharp's pricing is pretty much consistent in terms of screen area per dollar as you scale up. You also have to factor the overhead of it being a new panel with much lower yield and units produced at the fab than the 80" panels.

I just checked online for any news concerning the Sharp LC-90LE745U and there is a store in Canada, www.electronicsforless.ca, taking pre-order with a guaranteed shipping date of Friday, July 6th 2012, with a sale price of one dollar less than $10,000.00.
I would venture to say that is the msrp for the model which hopefully will come down to a more "affordable" street pricing between $7,500.00 to $8,000.00...

Yeah that guy is just gouging $ ,that happened with the 632 80" on Ebay there were auctions that had that 80" for $100 over MSRP but said they would ship before the release date . same thing happened with the New Ivy Bridge 3770K Intel processors they were up on Ebay a week before the release date for $400 & more .. they retail now @ $340 .

it's 27% more not 37%

http://www.displaywars.com/80-inch-16x9-vs-90-inch-16x9

the cost also depends on if sharp can get economic cut on 1 glass, like their 10th generation Line cut 6*60"

Hope you're gonna reserve one unit for Chad B to calibrate! From what I've read thus far his reviews are spot on! I'm interested to read his opinion about this set.

If this is correct, I will have 1.5 " to spare on the top and bottom, the 90" will fit and replace the 80" !!

Does anybody know of an articulating wall mount that should work with the 90inch Sharp?

This one would probably work - look under specifications and it gives the mounting pattern dimensions - depends on what the pattern is for the new 90" I believe this is the heaviest mount on the market. http://www.chiefmfg.com/Products/PDRUB

as potentially impressive as a 90" LCD would be, without 4k resolution, I think it's going to be lacking. especially with 3D on board. I love the idea of larger and larger screen sizes, but at what point does size outpace 1080p? there has to be a point of diminishing returns with regard to screen real estate 1080p resolution. I think the 4k revolution really needs to begin in a big way, no pun intended. there are only a few 4k models announced, but if it doesn't become a standard I think all of these massively sized screens will be wasted and viewing quality will drop. we will really see this when LG or Sharp finally do drop 4k sets later this year or next.

just looking at the numbers between a sharp 60" to 90" tv, its a difference of 26" in width and 14.5" in height. that has to have a serious impact on pixel density.

Hmmm I agree and disagree ;-)

Many say for immersion on 3d the bigger the better. As for pixel structure worries...unless your sitting on top of it, most 632 and 844 users have no complaints. Myself inckused. Of course 4k might help with closer viewing angles, like most new tech its all about the content and in the case of 4k the possible lack of it.

Either two great options to choose from. But what will the LG his the street at is the big question

Keep in mind viewing distance will also grow as screen size does. The human eye can only see so much detail. Google the article "why 4k is stupid." Very interesting. I personally would much rather see better color accuracy, motion resolution, deeper black, etc. than 4k.

These big Sharps have me real excited to upgrade my display in my new house later this year. I've now completely disregarded the idea doing front projection, which makes so many things so much easier. I hope this is a killer set and can't wait to see what else they come out with.
