IMHO yes. I have never seen any tv on avsforum with so few negatives as the Sharp 80. I know that if I ever get around to changing the settings to some suggestions on the settings thread, it'll be even better (but it's not too shabby right out of the box!)
This is the first set I have purchased on line and had it shipped to my home. That is a lot cheaper, and it finally occured to me that all the local stores do is check the box for external damage, and add on a significant $ markup, then wait for the next sucker, ehrr customer to come by. This experience has made me a believer in the internet business model. Fry's has sold the 632 for as low as $4,000 but to that they add on $70 for delivery and sales tax on the whole deal. For the difference, I'll order on-line every time from now on.
