But you dear reader probably don't care about that.
Anyone who's purchased from Cleveland Plasma: did SharpElite honor your warranty? How long did delivery take? I was hoping to see a 2012 refresh so 2011 models would come down but I guess that's not to be....
This is just my opinion.
Don't bother buying a new GT or Elite unless you are going to feed it HD signals.
If that's not an option, be prepared to also have to buy a video processor to clean up the picture. Most modern TVs don't do a very good job with poor content.
