Are there any plasmas in the 70-80" range?

I have a 60ST30, but moved into a bigger space, and these 80" sharp TVs are looking appealing..., but I'd rather have a plasma. I can't seem to find anything bigger than 65", so was just wondering if I am missing something or if they simply do not exist (outside of the extreme large one's with extreme prices I have found).

Thanks!

Justin

I'm in the same boat as you.
Would love a Plasma in the 75-80" range when I upgrade from my 63"

Anybody have any inside scoop on when we may see something affordable in that range?

Thanks for the info all. I guess it's 65 for now, and hopefully someone will come out with a couple bigger choices to compete with the giant LEDs.

You may want to wait until november, I think the 2013 pannys will be announced with a possibility of a larger than 65 size. If so expect a premium price.
