just to share
also, the LG 84" 4k tv is out in singapore and retails at 25k singapore dollars.
the sharp 80" 632 is retailing at 14k singapore dollars.
Honestly-With electronics, it's really up 2 u if you got the extra cash, but I wouldn't. If you utilize Sharp's aquos advantage program, they give you I believe another 6 months over the year warranty, or at least they did with me when I called them and registered. Other then the power cycling issue that a lot of us experienced, this TV has been pretty rock solid and kick ass. Updates have all gone without a hitch...and regarding my post a few posts above...my wireless issue was fixed by turning the TV off and then back on....This TV is really solid and I don't foresee it breaking before 3 years, unless it was due to a shipping issue...

Seeing the money issues with sharp doesn't make me feel good. Also when are some newer models going to come out? Could get a better quality 70 inch for the same money? Thank you for your help, I read a lot of these pages and reviews as well.
To add to my comment above...This TV is huge and beautiful. Is it perfect? No. Cable TV can be hit or miss but you can tweak it to look very good. Blu-ray movies, especially Pixar/Disney look frekkin' AMAZNG in dynamic mode. I watched Brave last night and Despicable me and My GOD it looked so nice. This TV is worth the money. I was going to go with the Sammy 75es8000, but it was taking to long to come out and costs twice what this TV costs. it may not be the flashy thin bezel like the newer models now, but it's 80 inches of LCD goodness.
