Its a pity Sharp seem incapable of producing a good TV, being LCD is not helpful either.

every tv/projector has its compromises, and a 80" tv is going to be more flexible than a projector,
even if a projector can give a 100" image

owen-have you heard of any other tv's coming out in australia 2012 in 80"+ ?

Sorry no, other than the existing 80" and 103" Panasonic Plasmas there seems to be nothing other than a couple of big LCD's.

An 80" TV is only and an addition to not a replacement for a projector IMHO. The 103" Panasonic is certainly a contender but I am doubtful it would stand up well for picture quality compared to a good projector.

The 80" is full array backlit LED-LCD. No specs on the 90" yet.

Full Array LED backlight system provides even brightness across the screen

Does this mean all of Sharps non full array LED's are guaranteed to have screen uniformity issues?

Probably quite capable. Just unwilling. Perhaps Sharp should utilise some of their "high tech" with an up-market arm ie Teac/Esoteric, and leave the lower quality to the "sharp" end of town. B)

LED TV's are LCD TV's.
LCD TV's come with three kinds of lighting, the traditional CCFL back light, LED edge lighting and LED back lighting with or without local dimming.

Full array LED back lighting is no guaranty of good uniformity as the LCD panel has to be uniform as well and that a hit and miss situation, some are and some aren't. Having said that Sharp panels seem pretty good for uniformity.

Edge lighting is by its very nature uniform so introduces it own problems independent of the LCD panel.

owen -if you have a $2000-$4000 projector and set it up to produce a 80" image, however would that compare to a 80' panasonic tv or 80" sharp tv in daytime and nightime viewing ?
