Well, there are always the 70 and 80" Sharp LCDs, plus the 85" Panasonic plasmas I was just told about, which retail for about 16 grand or something like that...as well as the 73-92" Mitsubishi DLP rear projection sets...unless you were just talking about plasma/LCD...
Just talking about Plasma/LCD.

The 70" and 80" Sharp LCDs (non-Elite) are decidedly lower end models, and were never in the running for me.

The 85" Panny plasma would be great, but I'd rather have a new car.

I've heard nothing but great things about the Sharps from actual owners who have just set them up; in fact, one guy who used to run a 70" SXRD said he cannot believe the step up in performance and image quality he got by going with the 70" Sharp...

I am almost positive he bought the non-Elite as well...

Yeah, no kidding...

What about that 20,000 dollar Sony LCD? What is it they're smoking over there?

I have a 70" sharp and I love it! The picture quality is amazin! I can't stop raving about this tv! My friend has a 65" and he notices the difference in size!

Hey again bxb...

Thanks for your feedback; I was looking at the 80" Sharp at Fry's on Labor Day when I went to pick up a couple of Infinity Primus towers for my two channel system (on sale for $99 a piece -- couldn't pass it up) and it was a monster; they had it on display on a fake wall with two rows of seating, but the salesman said it was a blowout model that didn't have the Quattron technology in it, so it was on a massive sale.

I just don't think we can swing that 80" screen in our living room...

Do you think I will definitely notice a difference going from the 50" rear projection set I have now to the 70" Sharp? Do you think that will be "enough" to satisfy at 12 feet?

Hey Osage I definitely think you will notice the difference in size!! I've heard quite a few owners love their 80 inch. They say once they get it home and adjust it to their liking it's amazing!! I think you should go for it if you can and let us know what you think.

Bigger is always better as long as you have a HD signal. Once you go big there is no going back!

Why not just upgrade to a 100" screen for your projector......a lot larger than 80" TV and less expensive upgrade.

I realize that, but I'm specifically concerned with seeing a difference between 50 and 70 inches.
