The problem is that it doesn't list the 2012 models, some of which are in the stores. For that, you have to find their press release announcing 2012 models.

I tried checking both sharpusa.com and sharp.ca. While they have most, I dont see many models discussed here and that I see in stores.

This is the model list at both sites (70 inch only)

SharpUSA:
LC-70LE735U
LC-70LE734U
LC-70LE733U
LC-70LE732U
LC-70LE632U
LC-70C6400U
LC-70LE640U
LC-70LE745U

Sharp.ca
LC-70LE845U
LC-70LE745U
LC-70LE735U
LC-70LE734U
LC-70LE732U
LC-70LE640U
LC-70LE632U

Is there any way to tell based on model # what year it is from?

I dont see the following models at either site:
70-LE633U (available at Costco.ca)

C6400 - at FutureShop.com

Is there a comprehensive list somewhere that includes all models from all years?

Any thoughts on the above post? My window of fiancée approved 70" TV shopping can only remain open for so long:P

^^ while big chinese LCD TV coming... like I always say, Asians in general don't have an issue with a wall being dominated by a TV. I would suspect however that they will have a slow ramp up.

"China-based CEC-Panda LCD Technology and Top Victory, a subsidiary of TPV Technology, will jointly invest CNY35bn (US$5.57bn) to set up a 10G line for the production LCD panels. CEC-Panda will take up a 99.2% stake in the 10G line.

The 10G line will focus on the production of large- and ultra large-size LCD panels for local brand TV vendors in China.

TPV said the establishment of the 10G plant will save a substantial amount of import tariffs due to the local availability of large-size TV panels in China, while strengthening its global competitiveness.

The 10G line has a cost advantage for the production of large-size panels. Glass substrates at the 10G line can be cut into eight units of 60-inch TV panels compared to a yield of three units from the 8.5G lines at Samsung Electronics and LG Display.

However, Taiwan-based panel makers are currently reluctant to commit investments on 10G lines due to heavy capital requirements and the financial strain."

Any news on the often rumored Sharp "945" line what was supposed to have local dimming in 60" and 70" but not as advanced as the Elite?

That is sad. I was hoping with the surprise 90" they would toss this in. I love the Elite and all but that price is just out of control. 80% of the picuture for 60% of the cost would have been great.
post #1392 of 1421
Well here is the 90" everyone has been waiting for, how about a better 80"?

^^ the 90 incher seems to be hell lot of TV as it looks to be at least full array LED /if not full local dimming/. But that is reflected in the price, $11K is not the money people will be ready to spit. Except some Elite people of course biggrin.gif.

This thread doesn't get a lot of action anymore since the release of the 80LE632, 80LE844, 70LE735, 70LE745, and 70LE845/847. Since many here have done a lot of research prior to buying or is still researching these displays, what do you think of the edge-lit compared to the full array back lit technology? It seems like the full array70LE735 should theoretically deliver a superior over all picture compared to the edge-lit 70LE745/847. Is it that simple or is there more to the story?
post #1396 of 1421
Oh I'm watching. I'll have to start rooting around for some other big tv threads to subscribe to.

It's good to see this model come out, been waiting years for something like this. Still cheaper than that 100" Panny!

One can say it depends on the quality of implementation. That said, with full array it is easier to achieve backlight uniformity, edgelit is much more demanding in this respect. The 90" Sharp is a steep jump in price
over the 80" leading to speculation it is full array with local dimming like in Elite models. With the Elite-like local dimming this TV could be on a short list for the best TV ever made and it should be so for the price of 11 grands.

It doesn't have local dimming. Come on sharp, 80 with full array and local dimming!

Exactly. If it doesn't have local dimming isn't it just a bigger 735?

Actually got a call from VIZIO today, the 58" CinemaWide set (XVT3D580CM) is now available for order directly from them:

http://store.vizio.com/xvt3d580cm.html?SID=tquo4520ia7j40em07d5mv85a2

It's $2,499.99 for a limited time with free shipping. Even at its regular price ($2,799.99) its less than what they hinted at several months back ($3,499 I think).

Personally, I'm holding out for the 71" which I really hope makes it to production. I thought the fact that this series is finally for sale was a good sign, so I thought I'd post about it. I've got my fingers crossed.

I would also want a bigger set as the 58" has a smaller 21:9 image than a 65" 16:9 set, and way smaller than that of a 70" 16:9 set.

Samsung launched its new premium TV ES9000 in Korea. ES9000 features a 75 inch super screen with luxurious design in rose gold color. ES9000 also adopts Super Ultra Slim Design to reduce its bezel to mere 7.9mm.

The ES9000 is sold in Korea at around 19.8Million Won.

This is about 20 000 USD for the 75". Has Samsung lost touch with reality?

From the technical standpoint the price means they must be far from Sharp regarding their ability to produce big displays. It looks rather like the 75" is hand-made in a lab than on a full scale factory line. The price difference with the 80" Sharp is absurdly high.

No, seems to have the same electronics as the 8000 series.

The samsung is coming stateside for $10k in August. Looks like LG is joining in the fun too.

Yep. It looks like the the 4K direct view era has begun. You had Toshiba first with 55" 4K consumer set, but for some reason they still only allowed it to do 540p 3D and only available in Japan.
I believe this LG set is the world's first Full 1080p 3D Passive set available and it is of a size where the benefits of 4K rez will be visible. You can throw up a 4K picture and this thing is going to look like a framed piece of art. Now we have to just nail down a US price. They were talking $10K for the US market, but the price in LG press release looks like 20K for Korea. Probably looking at $15K here in the US, if and when available later this year. Might be time to finally start a 4K direct view section here.

I cannot imagine anyone, or there are few people, savvy enough to get a good picture out of it. No HDMI, only a single DVI input, and HD of 720 over component for what really amounts to 2 inputs...
I am able to play 360 and PS3 and watch HD cable, but nothing more. I cannot even run my HDMI switching receiver due to no HDMI input, and it is not worth the effort to try to get it to output audio over RCA for switching (meaning I do not even know if it can be done).
I cannot believe that I am writing this, but I am sorta hoping that the TV takes a crap on me. It is slow to start up...BUT, and this is a big BUT, the picture on it is still very satisfactory for me. The only other set in the house is a very rarely used Sony 1080 LED, but there is no WOW factor on a 40 or 42" set (cant recall), even if it is an XBR.
I know that if I get a 70 like I want, that I will wonder why I waited...but damn I hate to think of the $4500 that I spent on this thing and walk away from what is now about 10 years of PERFECT TV service. Not ONE problem with that set, ever! Nope, not even the bulb.
BUT, I am keeping my eyes open for our next set, and pleased that 70" is now attainable for around the $2k mark.
