Also 85" is too big, won't fit
Edit: Apparently Hisense is Sharp in the us? Did you mean the Sharp MU9600?
Yes, Hisense owns the Sharp name in the USA for the next 5 years or so. And it is actually the Sharp 75 P9500. The 75MU9600U is the model number in China. Hisense is bigger in Europe and the UK were there is no Vizio to compete against, but they are trying to expand to the US market. They are the 3rd or 4th biggest display seller in the world.
In the US, they said they will have two top of the line FALD QDs. The 320 zone 70" 70H10D and the 560 zone 75" 75H10D. It will be the most expensive Hisense every sold in the US, if they actually release them here. And on paper they look to be some of the best 2017 displays you can get.
560 FALD zones (second only to Z9D)
3rd gen Nanosys Quantum Dot Film (same color volume of Samsung Q9 QLED),
480hz effective refresh rate (120hz native with BLS/BFI)
12-bt grayscale backlight (variable dimming/illumination)
Claimed 2200 nits peak (brightest HDR)
Claimed .0007 nits black (questionable as they probably are measuring when the backlight turns off, but should be close)
One of them is supposed to be released in late May/June, the other in August. Around $3K for the 70" and $5K for the 75" model.The Sharp P9500s should be similar, but slightly more expensive. Early reviews of the Chinese models have been excellent. Definitely worth the wait for a reputable review, if you can wait that long.
