Thread Details

Just went to Costco and saw this TV for $1899-$50 instant savings. Pretty sure the same goes for other locations if available since it is the new model and introductory sales price.

huge difference between 55 and 70. once you get used to your new Tv, your only complain is "damn, I should buy a bigger size". lol

regarding to PQ, I always prefer SHARP since it makes the best and most advanced LCD panel in the world. I have a 60" 8 serial 2012 model SHARP and I am very happy with it. I know the overall performance and quality of SHARP is not as good as SONY (damn expensive) . and I read many bad reviews about the SHARP customer service but I believe it is YMMV. Costco has the best return policy and 2 years warranty, so, worth a try. good luck.
That is how I initially felt after getting the 55" setup. Eyes were already spoiled with the size of the 70" screen and the 55" seemed small. I had regrets but taking into consideration that I paid $400 less for a better quality Samsung with 3D I have been pretty content with it after owning it for a few weeks and a bit of getting used to. But after seeing the Sharp it seems like having the best of both worlds for $650 more. Really considering going with the Sharp especially with the included 2 year warranty and great return policy from Costco. If I do buy it I will hold on to the Samsung until I know for sure that the size of the Sharp is worth the price difference. Thanks for the feedback! I will definitely update when I go back to Costcos.

Once you start getting into the big screen sizes you might also want to check 1080p 3d PJ's. Just a suggestion, since as some of you guys have found, once you get used to bigger sizes screen sizes, it's hard to go back to the small sizes ( 70 inchs for me is tiny). Just saying. Smilie

I was originally using a Optoma 750E short throw projector on the wall where I have the TV now. It was only 720p but the size of the picture was what originally got me into big screens. The only thing was the heat from the projector was so hot that I could barely feel the central a/c in the bedroom that it was in and the temps were not optimal for my indoor plants that I have growing in a tent in the same room. Seen that the prices on 70" TVs dropped to $1549, I decided to try the Vizio 70" which was the beginning of my search for a TV . I recently sold my GT750E but am still currently using a Optoma Ml500 LED projector in my living room. Was thinking with a LED projector I could use it 24/7 and not worry about bulb replacement. But after seeing how dim it can be compared to a standard bulb projector, and seeing prices on 1080p projectors drop, and taking into consideration how many hours I actually put on the projector a day. I am thinking about upgrading to a 1080p 3D projector like the BenQ W1070 until the price of 1080P LED projectors drop and become brighter. 70" did seem small but the brightness of the LED TV and the less heat that it produced seemed more ideal for my situation. Totally agree with once you are exposed to the big screen size its hard to go back. Especially with watching HD movies, sports and video gaming.

Saw the 80" for around $3900 at Costcos. Saw the 90" listed at Best Buy for $8999.

Once you are thinking big, big screen, really check out Projectors. Smilie
For 500-1000 dollars you can SUPER SIZE your setup with a GOOD 3D PJ and make these 70 inch hdtv's look like little boys toys. Smilie
Bigger is better on some things.
I'm not trying to thread crap on you guys but really 2,000 dollars for 70 inch hdtv is kinda high, right?

For my situation it is ideal. When 70" tvs were selling for $4K plus it was a little too rich for my blood. But for less than $2k, less heat, flexibility to move it and not be confined to blasting it on a wall and ability to view the TV without controlled lighting it works well. With a projector you need to have enough available space between the projector and the screen which is why I originally went with the GT750E short throw projector. If it wasn't for the heat, lack of 1080p and the 4000 hour bulb life, I probably would have kept using it until prices come down even more.

so this is a sharp TV? OP, might want to update the thread title. I thought for a minute this was for a no name brand TV.

I'm waiting for 4k projectors and content to become more mainstream (and to move into a new house!)

Nice TV. I'm tempted!!!

MSRP $2799
I think that "2800" MSRP price they announce is bullcrap.

This opened for $1950 @costco. $1,850 is $100 off.. still a good price for sure though. Sears had the non 3d model for $1700.. this is easily worth a $150 more imo.

Was not referring to the Lc70c6500. Guess they only have the 60" model @ your store.
