post #751 of 1357
Hi Everybody,

I just got back from CES, and saw the 90inch Sharp LED LDC TV on display in the SHARP booth, actually, they had a whole bunch of them all over the place and they looked really, really good to me.

I really want to purchase a Sharp 90, which is my grail TV today. I was expecting to see something more appealing at CES that might trump the Sharp 90, but I didn't. The only think I saw that I think I would want more was the Samsung 110 inch 4K, but they said it was a prototype and had no plans to offer it anytime soon :-(

Supposedly, Westinghouse will be offering a 110 inch for $300,000, which seems absurd to me!?!?

So in my mind, the Sharp 90 inch remains the King Of The Hill, at least for now. What do you think?

thanks for the comments from the show. I (like many of us) just wish they would get a tad more aggressive on the price) A 50% mark up over the 80 for 10 extra inches is too hard to justify.

6.5k is my sweet spot.

Hi Suzook,

I agree that 6.5k is the sweet spot. It seems like they would sell many more at that price. Also, the 90 has an matte (non-reflective) bezel, which is a big improvement over the plastic bezel on the 80 inch.

I just saw that the 4K 85inch Samsung will be offered for pre-order at around $38,000, which sounds awfully expensive to me.

Any comments on the 84 inch Sony 4k unit ?
Was RED at the show with their projector ?
post #757 of 1357
I also had a chance at CES to check out the 55inch LG 4k 3D LED TV and it pretty much blew my mind!!!

What does this have to do with the 90inch Sharp? Nothing, and everything.

I think the 90 inch Sharp will remain the King of the Hill / Best value for a while.

Within about 5 years, we will probably be able to purchase a 120inch 4K, 3D OLED screen for around $6,500, but that is a long way off. In cat years that is 35 years.

That was the thing that was kind of frustrating about CES this year, is that there was a lot of future tech, but nothing available now or soon.

BTW. I also checked out the Sony 4K OLED which I think was 55 inches and it was over the top immersive for a 2D TV.

I also saw the 4K Sony LED TV that was upsampling 1080p to 4K and it looked pretty good.

I guess my point is that there seems to be a lot of innovation that needs to occur to deliver the ultimate home theater experience, but the 80 and 90 inch Sharps get you 80% to 90% of the way there for now...
post #758 of 1357
Maybe RED will be our savior with their new camera????

I was also expecting more from sharp but nothing most people can afford, look how pricey their 4K tv cost $30'000 for a 60 inch come on Sharp. Sony and LG have an 84inch for cheaper.

Guess i will be waiting until Q2 or Q3 to see if the prices drop and to see who atually is coming out with what was shown at CES. Awwww the never endless wait to purchase the 1 las:pt TV

I had a Sony 70" XBR when they first came out. Rear projection and in its day it was the largest set around....

I've begun my upgrade process. I purchased a receiver and stand for the new TV.

I havn't decided between the 80" and 90"

I know its a large price difference between the two, but since I'm so used to 70, I want something that is a WOW factor. I'm really leaning to 90.

Will I be disappointed?

I'm gonna go back and reread every post in both threads.

If my ship was in I'd have this display & sell my 80" the ship is not due till the end of the year or later tongue.gif
So I wait Lusting over the object of my desire wink.gif L O L

But really I'm very very happy with my 632 80" to see them side by side & properly set up the only difference is the WoW of the added 10" & that 10" is a huge difference seems like 10" would not be such a big impact but it is smile.gif the square footage is a big difference.
I'll never go back to anything smaller than 80"
I am happy to wait thou the 80" 632 is a great display tricky to get all the ducks in a row in set-up , down stream processing , source units but once all is set The PQ is a thing of beauty
post #761 of 1357
I have a projector, and my screen is currently 92, i think i would prefer an 80 though. 90 inches alot of source material really bothers me, but I would not want to go smaller then 80.

Its size vs pq regarding the 90 vs 80 for me and seating distance. And even though I sit 12 feet away, my hd cable still does not look great blown up to 90 some inches on a projector.

I am one of the few that started with a 110 incher years ago that has went down in size. I know many around here say bigger is always better, but im very picky about picture quality. Besides bluray which is almost always flawless even on large screens, many sources such as hd cable, some video games, and even some poorer low bitrate bluray transfers, just have not taken the next step up pq wise to look good on a huge display.

You will NOT be disappointed with the 90".. Big WOW factor.

I'm likely buying this set in the next week or two.

I have never seen this side by side with an 80.

I'm hoping I won't regret it if I buy this set. Maybe its just too early to be buying a 90 inch flat screen?

I was at HHGregg today talking about my plans. The salesperson was pushing the 80 due to quality. Of course I take that all with a grain of sand.

Is there really a large difference between the quality of the 80 vs. 90?

I have both. Hard to see any difference. Both are great, but D and Comcast both have a bit of motion blur on some channels.

That's the one negative to such a large screen. In an effort to deliver as many channels as possible, the satellite and cable providers have compressed the crap out of their feeds. It's not a big deal when you have a 60" set, but it becomes more and more obvious the larger the panel gets. This is one of the reasons I am strongly considering the 75" Samsung, even though I'd love to have a 90" set. Until 4K becomes more prevalent, I'm thinking 75" may be the sweet spot when it comes to size vs. picture quality.
post #765 of 1357
I went from a 70" to a 90" and I don't see any drop off. It seems to depend more on the channel I am watching and what rez it was shot at. Fox sports not so good, NatGeo, Smithsonian and HBO look great....Late Night on NBC looks fabulous.
I would like to see the Samsung? 75" though. Can't seem to find it around here.

The picture on the 75" Samsung is very impressive. The only other set I've seen that can compete with it (besides the new 4K sets) is the 70" Elite Sharp.

Don't feel too bad Fastslappy. I've owned a couple of Westinghouses - 42" and 52" and they were the worst TV's by far that I've owned out of 11 sets. Major quality issues and buggy firmware. I would rather buy a Dynex or Insignia if you want to scrape the bottom quality tier. Of value priced TV's - Vizio is probably the best. I hear they got some huge TV's coming out. That could be interesting.

Careful with the sale guys, first of all these are upp priced, as tempting it is, I wouldn't recommend it. Mine had 4 dead pixels but I bought from a authoriZed dealer so they took it back and replaced it.
I know places like eastcoasttvs have them on sale but I'd stay away. I purchased from eastcoasttvs before, no problem but that was a smller tv, 65" plasma .. Last year actually. Took over a month for delivery, quite scary because my cc protection was expired. But reasons why I'd stay away from out if state purchases, is mainly DMG from shipping. It won't be a simple call and replacement. Even Paul's tv comes out as out of stock on these, I had a out of state online buy before on an 80" and when it was showing signs if internal damage few days later I had to figure it out on my own and out of my pockets

Try to stick with authorized dealer on any TVs that is over 5k ,

Same rule applies for me when the 4k-8k TVs get here local to replace this 90" next year or two
post #776 of 1357
Well at the end of the day after hours of tweaking and calibrating, movie picture my 65 plasma is hands down noticablly better in so many fields , I thought led might've advanced a bit by now but I'm still a plasma fan boy, but for sports this 90" makes me smile smile.gif

I'm one of those that is likely use an online retailer.

My concerns are as you stated. Waiting for shipment and any hassles in getting issues corrected.

I was willing to pay more by going to BB for instance, but the price difference is just too large.

I tested the waters with the online merchant. I purchased about $4K worth of equipment from him over the last two weeks. So far he has come through flawlessly.

I'm really not worried about the shipping damage. I understand the SHARP comes on a palletized and "crated". Its not like best buy builds it there. Its shipped to them from somewhere.

Anyway, I will be buying soon and taking the risk

Is that based on Blu-ray movies? I have the 80" 844u and Blu-ray looks amazing on it.

Yep the box has a little wooden peice at the bottom "palletized" but it's only the bottom, it's just for easy moving with a fork lift back and forth, I wouldn't really say for protection, anyways certain online retailers are good, especially with good feedbacks. But a lot of them use 3rd party deliveries which is where the risk is. I know Paul's tv has great service and has good delivery feedbacks.

Plasma4less is another good seller but not an authorized. BB is just too overpriced.

And yes I change up TVs often but it depends, if a new technogy is out I usually jump on it "not new resolution technology"

And as for the movie comparison I use blu rays only, not many movies till this date is actually filmed for HD so at this size it's not that great, the aqua motion scroll ? I hate it, movies feel and look more like Europe tv series,
And the 80" produce much better color than these 90"
The quattron or whatever helps with the orange , red, and yellow

Even after hours of calibration the orange for me is off, and the red is a bit flat. The 840 series u have has definitely much more pop look

Buy at the end, I enjoy the plasma much more,

Now I'm just gonna have to wait till the 4k TVs become more mainstream, currently I see no point on buying them since we're barely accepting 1080, well where I live anyways not many channels come full HD at 1080, rest is just a zoomed blown up "up converted" HD
