Was in HHGREGG today and the guy was telling me he had in the 90" Sharp for something like $9,500. eek.gif and I was wondering why Samsung does not have out any 80" or 90" sets yet. What you think?

The best reason I can guess is that 1080p doesn't look very good above 65". The Sharp 80" sets need to be viewed from at least 12' away because the displays don't appear very HD closer and are quite grainy. When 4K sets are introduced, you'll probably see more very large sets.

Sony KDL-55HX729, Sony STR-DH820 Receiver, Sony BDP-S590 BD Player, Sony SA-W2500 subs, Sony, SS-CN5000 center channel, Sony SS-F6000 left and right front speakers, Sony 3D Glasses: TDG BR-750 & TDG-BR250, Apple TV, APC Back Up UPS XS1500, Apple Airport Extreme.

Samsung can't produce panels bigger than 65" economically. Sharp is the only owner of a factory which can produce that big panels.
