've waited now another 2.5 yrs waiting for a 65" with deeper blacks like the XS1 and will be patient hoping for a repeat MSRP cut especially in this consumer market it's hard to believe they could keep the pricing at $15K when the SE94 sells for under $5K and the D64 closer to $3K. Sharps seems to bank on getting it's R&D funded by early adopters with cash and then bring the lines down to reality and segregate their lines but I don't see alot of opportunities to get much surplus cash in this market. That XS1 sounds like a great panel provided they bring it closer to reality of what a Kuro Elite sells for.

I have the money ready to spend, but they just don't make what I am looking for. I would have thought that someone would have announced a 60-65" LED based LCD, but no. Disappointed. Am I missing something? Does such a product exist?

Frustratingly, I'm right there with you. I too was waiting for the CES 2010 refresh this year to replace my 65" Mitsu Diamond from 2001 (it's a big box). How is it, with the evolution of these sets, that no one would have anyone announced a 65" backlit LED? I'd rather not go with some heavy plasma and since the Kuro's are gone, I don't think there's anything too great in that size anyway.

yeah, 72 inch LED-backlit Vizio for $3500. Look forward to it!

There are plenty of 60+ lcds on the horizon. Sony just released the ex500 series for a VERY reasonable price. Vizeo has a 72" for even cheaper coming out. Other manufactures are following too.

How is the Vizio line on quality now? I recall hearing in the past that it wasn't as good as everyone else, basically a poor man's hdtv at one point....

In a survey of 118,700 LCD owners, Vizio was the equal of Sony, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba, LG, Panasonic in terms of reliability. From 2006 to mid-2009, owners reported needing repairs only ~3% of the time.
