You need to put your crack pipe down...
Your spewing garbage.... If you don't like LCD-great move on. If you love plasma great- enjoy.
The top-tier displays are all worthy. If I were a potential owner I would not hesitate on any of these top displays. Potential owners need to get out there and bring some blu-rays with them and try them out.
I get no soap-opera, I turn my motion settings to off or very low. The picture is great in day or night viewing. Blacks and contrast are top-tier and that brings great viewing pleasure.
You make it sound that the Sharps are garbage. I admit I have not viewed the lower end models in detall but I bet that new 80 is awesome for movies/sports. The Elite is awesome. I missed that 80 by a few weeks. I would have considered it as an opton. The size is awesome.
I have viewed the VT on a couple of occassions and it is really really nice. It was better the second time.First time, browns and greys were blah and lifeless. It was much better the second trip. I can see how many folks would enjoy this set.
Once again, I don't have an issue if you have a peference over LCD with plasma but you spew off too much crap and can't be taken seriously.
I agree the Sharp picture quality is aweful. It's an embarrasment to have friends or family over as it just can't touch Plasma. Wish the blacks and contrast were better. The colors are horrible too. I think the blue painted indian is supposed to be green?? That dang soap opera effect- Dang.
There are several great sets out there of both technologies. Decide your needs and size and be happy.
Not a perfect set but I'm thrilled...
