$5,500 for any piece of electronic equipment is ALOT in my opinion but maybe I wouldn't feel that way if I were independently wealthy.
Alas, I am not independently wealthy so spending that kind of cash on anything really is a huge consideration as far as I'm concerned. Especially when that money isn't providing a greater return for my investment.
I don't care what anyone says, Sharp is trading on the "ELITE" name and followers are doing just that, following. Now there's nothing neccessarily wrong with that however as we all have our brand bias' for our own various reasons and if yours is the ELITE (Sharp) brand in particular, great, enjoy. I personally just don't think any of the "ELITE" TVs are truly worth what Sharp is selling them for even if they were near flawless which they apparently are not.
Is the ELITE LED/LCD a great TV? In most respects, yes, that's why it won the shootout but is it $3,500 better than the performance of either the VT30 or D8000? NO WAY IN H*LL!
Fact is, these are all great televisons considering today's technology. They're all flawed in one way or another and each of them are only separated by miniscule differences in the greater picture of their overall performance. You really can't go wrong owning either of them as they're all at the very top of today's TV offerings.
Whichever one you're watching, I hope you're enjoying it to the fullest regardless of whatever's been said anywhere about it.
