Not sure but if they switch to an edge lit for this model it will be sad....

We will not know for sure if they are a edge lighted model until Sharp puts up a complete specs page on the 633 .
Gut feeling on my part ? = Full Back array as the 844 is that way & this (633)is just a newer spec'ed 632 .
In all good faith no one knows for sure YET !
So far what is know ; 632 VS a 633 ==> 9 pounds lighter in total weight ,uses more watts ,has a setting for 240 ,& is to have the improved smart system of apps like the 2012's all do .
It would seem adding features would ADD weight but that is not the case ...

I sure hope the current one is still going to be available. After all the positive posts on AVS I'm almost afraid to get a different model.
But, the guy backed out from buying my 70 inch JVC, so I'm in a holding pattern for now.

Cdw is definitely reputable. $53xx isn't too bad for this stage of the game. I think we'll see <$5k from CP, VE and the like in the not too distant future.

Stuck up, half witted, scruffy looking, nerf herder.

I went to Nebraska Furniture Mart today (large regional store) and they didn't have the 844 in stock yet but they did offer to sell one that they will get first of April for $4899 (selling 832 for $4499), now that was a package price with an Onkyo TX-NR809 receiver for $849 (~$120 higher than online best price) but that's not a bad first price. I don't see why US wouldn't be able to go at least $500 lower, at least hopefully!

So now that many of us on this forum have the 632 any ideas on the best way to switch to the 844? I know you said you don't really like the 3D but I do and don't want to be the first to purchase it but I may move towards that.

It'll be interesting to see what you guys can get for a barely used 632. The logistics of shipping I do not envy!

Well if you have the box and ship by freight not as bad as you think. I shipped a 200 pound 65 inch plasma on a skid 20 states away for under $400

yeah that's what I thought....................
as back in late 2010 they were crowing about the 2011 9XX series & that got cancelled later in early 2011 , now the 945's as well are toast .. must be that they can NOT get the local dimming to work right yet & the fact that they feel that the 9XX's are not gonna make a good profit in the current dismal Display market .
Wonder how the Edge lit 70'ers are gonna be ?
Seems they are selling a few & we should start hearing reports soon on how well the PQ is on the 2012 edge lit models ..
