I suppose the next question (though wrong forum) is whether there is going to be a consumer-targeted 80" flat panel. I'm aware of the expensive, nearly prototype models by LG & Runco.
I originally had all intentions on front-projection, but that was when I had a couch 13' from the screen wall and I needed a 100-109" screen. Now that I have tiered home theater seating, and the front row is 8-9' away, the ideal screen size is 80-85", thus more in the range of rear-projection or flat panel.

Based on my viewing distance, I could use a 80" diagnonal screen. I'd like to avoid front-projection. Anybody aware of rear-projection DLPs larger than 73" planning to be released in the future?
