Why did you give up on the Elites? (Were you convinced that the initial flaws would/could not be addressed by Sharp support?) Why did you sell your 55LHX? Did your B8500 outperform the LHX? And why didn't you consider the 929?
Let me add that the launch of the 9800 has been a big disappointment in the global marketplace and is not worth consideration if you are looking for high-end quality.
But, if you currently own a non-defective 55LHX, there is absolutely no reason on Earth to replace it. Does it trump the 929/Elite? I wouldn't know.
Hey nony, how you doing?
I'm surprised to not see the 55LW7700 around, it was showed before with a matte screen, would have been the most possible match to the LHX, but if I remmeber right, you have posted info regarding the zones were going to be way less than the LHX, suprised that LG's offerings this year have been so lack-luster....
I did some testing with the Sony 929, and it looked good, and I also looked at the new Elite, which also looked good, BUT, I look at everything into this perspective: how much money does it take for me to say the set I have is good enough?
My friends come over all the time and always comment on the LHX's unreal picture quality ( not even perfectly calibrated ) and I say, this set could be had for well less than half or more than the Sony 929, and double or tripple in price for the Elite, there is no perfect set out there, but for the money, and I'm betting on Black Friday Deals will be un'presidented ( they always are ) where this set will be sold at a big time bargan price, an no other set can bet it for mostly that point, cost vs performance....
