Sharp 65" SE94 is but 112lbs without stand. That's quivalent to another 42" panel added on. Of course for now the Sharp costs about double.
When I see these weights of the Olevia Sharp Glass it makes me wonder if they are using the previous gen 65" Sharp panel that was extremely heavy like my 57" which is 164lbs. Doesn't seem it would be economical since those panels were manufactured in Japan not the US whereas the D64's 65" are totally built in Mexico including the substrate glass.
It doesn't seem possible to sell the Olevia at such low prices if the glass was shipping from Japan but who knows perhaps the profit margin is much higher than we realize. Otherwise what in the hell could Syntax be adding that makes the panels so damn heavy?
Hey Westa, yea, to bad the Sharp is so much more money, but then again some have posted the picture is better on the Olevia, it would be interesting to see the two side by side.
It would seem PCMALL has the weight incorrect as well.
I just went on the Olevia website and had a look-see at the manual, the Olevia manual has the 65 incher listed at 156 lbs without the stand, so "Suzook" was correct in his post.
156lbs makes me feel much better about wall mounting.
The mount I currently have my 6070 mounted on is an extra large wide flat mount that spans 3 studs, Im sure it would hold the 156 lbs with no problem at all.
I really do love my 60 inch Pioneer plasma but I gota say that Olevia is looking pretty tempting.
And thanks "Suzook" for posting the correct weight.
