BB inventory system also lists 10K price. "In-stock" date of 6/24/12, although actual shipments to distribution centers/stores will probably be 1-3 weeks later if things go as usual.

While the weight would be under the limit of this mount, the VESA pattern would require an adapter. The mount pattern is supposed to be 400x600 on this.

Though I am an employee of Magnolia Home Theater, the views and opinions I express on this forum are those of my own and not my employer.

This is the technical drawing for the Universal Mounting Plate that comes with the mount - I am not sure how to calculte the VESA numbers but this looks large enough? http://downloads.chiefmfg.com/TECH-D...s-T/PSBU-T.pdf I used the adaptor for my 80" (844U) and it seems like there was plenty of room for a larger mounting pattern (400 X 400 for the 80").

I can't imagine that this model would look that great...1920x1080 at 90", combined with the inherent sharpness of an LCD vs. the softness of a, say, front-projected image at 92". Guess seeing it will be the real test.

well fat then I suggest you stroll on over to the 80632 or 80844 threads. Yes 10 inches less but plenty of happy campers with full array which the 90 will have as well. And I suspect very good PQ as well.

I'm sure they'll look "good," but just how good? I think we are at the point where Sharp has been hitting the market so hard with large flat panels that at 90" we are at the point where screen size is outpacing available resolution. I'm sure at a far enough seating distance this set will look very good, however I think it's undeniable that these mega-sized sets would definitely benefit from a bump in resolution.

Yeah, if every there was a large format display that need 4K, this would be it. TCL has a commercial 110" LCD and that is 4K. They may be saving the 4K for the Elite line next year.

At an Industrial display audio video show yesterday, the Sharp Factory rep for commercial displays said the 4k is coming. When I pressed him for a delivery date he said the home theater people were being pretty tight lipped about when but word was there would be a 4k 90 in October.
Maybe ?

I have 2 of the 844's and view them from 10 - 10.5 feet away. Previous to this I had the Mitsubishi 73's in the same areas. IMO there is no doubt that the picture is sharper, brighter and the colors more vivid and life-like than the Mitsu's. The recommended seating distance for the 90 will probably be 11-12 feet. At that distance I suspect the perceived resolution will still be very good. I have tried watching the 80's at a closer distance but the main thing that bothered me was the screen was larger than my field of view (like sitting in the front row of a movie theater) and I found that quite uncomfortable.

$10k for a 90" Sharp HDTV, or $10k down payment on a 2012 Subaru WRX STI. The Sharp would be replace my 52" Samsung B750, and the WRX would replace my 09 Scion tC. I want both

By all accounts, you are looking at a $6.5-7.5K street price 3 or 4 months after release.

Next Gen Elite? Would make sense for the high end to go that route and it was the debut time of last years Elite.

90" 4k Elite? That would cost a lot of $$$ based on the upcoming 10k MSRP 90" 745...

I was curious in the other direction. Would they release a cheaper three color, non 3d for the few of us not interested in it and ok with not so costly pure whites? Only time will tell.

I love how it already has 23 customers that rated it and it is not even available yet. By the way there are other pre-orders for $1K less out there.

Just saw the 90 inch sharp at Magnolia AV in Woodland hills Ca. It was next to the 80 inch 844 model. They had the hi def espn on showing sports results. Not too much action so I could see differences (if any) between the 120hz 90 incher and the 240 hz 844. Both were very good. Could stand quite close to both and not have a problem. Salesman said that both were in the "default" mode the sets came with. Said that the 90 incher was literally just put turned on before I got there. Both were again very very good. Almost impossible to pick which was better. Again claim was made that neither had any calibration done to them. I liked them both and have no idea how good they could be if calibrated.

Also, they had no ability currently to hook up a dvd to these to check movies. Said that perhaps in the future they would do so.
