Went in to see when they will be shipping today and still no news, I also could be in for a cash return as they may be less than what I originally paid for them!. Good news is the 70" models look awesome.

My build thread

My 8 x RE XXX 18" Subwoofers, IB build
Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

Do you know what Nemesis means?

Good to hear! Hope they come in soon for you smile.gif

If the sharps were 2.0 ready I would get the 70" for sure!

Surprise surprise, I called sharp and sat on hold for about 20 minutes but I got the answer I was looking for.

The 70" 4K sets are 2.0 HDMI compatible!!!

They just don't clarify it on the website and there will not be a firmware upgrade to make it so biggrin.gif

Now I am really compelled to get the Sharp over the Sony or Panasonic!!

I've seen the Sharp at CEDIA its not as impressive as the SONY imo. I'll wait to see the Panasonic which I believe will be best of all.

Planar 4K looked quite nice at CEDIA.

Not sure of the price.

Although aimed at the professional market, the Planar has an interesting feature that I don't think is available on the TV's with the same panel such as Sony and LG, and that is the ability to watch 4 HD programs at once. For those with Sunday Ticket, that seems to be a pretty slick solution that is just as good as 4 separate 42inch 1080p TV's.

think so, the biggest obstacle to low prices on massive screens will be the packing and transport.thanks

The JVC 84" 4K does this.

Hi I'm not sure what you saw or ordered but I just was at a Demo with Sharp Reps..

The 70 inch 4k set is now being released and at this time they DO NOT have a plan to update the sets to 2.0... And I read here where someone said they were already 2.0 that is FALSE...Now it dose not mean they will not

however this means they are looking into the matter but there not sure how to do it.....It requires hardware and software to do it and that costs $$$$$$

I asked about 80 and 90 inch 4k sets from Sharp they said if interest is high for them they will look into bringing them to market in a year or two.

So I'm not sure what to say about what you ordered ?

There are sets that are 84 inches out there from Sony, Samsung, LG, JVC, and Toshiba but as of now only Sony and Samsung have confirmed upgrading them to 2.0

I would look into your order call Sharp and see what you can work out .......

At ISE the CTO told me 'definitely below $30K', giving the pricing of the competition Planar should keep it well below that. What Runco will charge, who knows...;-). The lead designer was one from the Runco team, I was told, though Planar's design team is now an integrated one.
