. In the past they contracted their 65" Glass from Sharp not Samsung - Samsung can't get enough production for themselves of the 65" so it's unlikely others are rebadging what's in short supply for themselves unless they have switched to AUO out of Taiwan who will be providing many manufacturers their 65" glass unless Sharps Patent infringement lawsuit (filed Monday) brings them to a halt for importing to US.
Sharp has filed these patent lawsuits several times in the past including Samsung in 2009 and won many of them and the lawsuit rebadging from AUO includes LG, Haier, Vizio and others using the AUO panels. I'm pretty certain the NuVision 65" carries Sharp Glass as the partnership was discussed on this forum a few years ago just as Olevia 65" was also using Sharp until they slipped into bankruptcy.
The point is that NuVision is trying to establish itself as a superior product line and can't begin to bring enough advanced technology to justify their price.
Their last review was in the Rob Report, and if you know anything about the Rob Report, the target audience are those who don't have to ask the price of what they like. In a 2008 review in Sound&Vision, the problems were hard to believe, that's how bad one aspect was.
"But I did have to play with the brightness (black-level) control often on different program material to find the right balance between deep blacks and shadow detail. The TV looked better overall at its default brightness setting, which delivered a punchy, contrasty picture but crushed the shadows somewhat."
