Sharp's 90-Inch Aquos Available Now at Just Over $10,000
It's the largest LED backlit set and it packs plenty more than just a big screen.

All my distributors are on back order with this display, and it has a minimum advertised price (MAP) of $9,999.99. I expect we will see it pop up for $10K all over the place, but a few places will offer it for $9K or possibly even less. I'm sure that we will see more than a few installations of this display in the upcoming year, and I'll definitely let people know what I think of it when I see it!AV Integrated - Theater, whole house audio, and technology consultation during the build and installation process in the Washington DC, Northern VA, and MD area.

Sharp LC-90LE745U 90 inch LED LCD for under $10,000 at Best Buy
On Monday June 18th 2012 I stopped in my local Best Buy which has a Magnolia section. To my surprise there was a new Sharp 90 inch LCD with LED backlighting on display. The Sharp LC-90LE745U black levels and overall picture quality did not look as good as a 2008 model Pioneer PRO-141FD 60 inch 1080P plasma. Still there was something special about seeing a screen size of 90 inches. A 90 inch screen brings one closer to the home theater experience and it makes 60 inch displays appear to be small. One can sit as close as 9 feet from a 90 inch 1080P Sharp display and not see any noticeable artifacts. This Sharp 90 inch screen only consumes 138 watts of power and with a list price of only $10,999. In fact Best Buy is selling it for $9,999 which is a breakthrough price for a flat screen of this size. It was not too many years ago that 70 inch flat screens cost $20,000-$30,000 (Now Walmart and Target have 70 inch Sharp flat screens between $2,298-$2,499.99). Consumers can get a 90 inch flat screen for under $10,000. A 92 inch Mitsubishi WD-92840 rear projector can be purchased from an Amazon dealer for only $2,849 (3:2 pulldown judder for 1080p/24). Of course most consumers do not like rear projectors because of their weight and large depth. Still if someone wants a cheap 92 inch 1080P screen Mitsubishi is the only consumer electronics manufactory that is still making rear projectors.
There is something special with watching movies at home on a large screen like 90 inches or over 100 inches. Some high-end ceiling mounted front projectors can project images as big as 150-300+ inches but most consumers do not have a big enough home theater room for a 300 inch screen. Between 90 inches to 130 inches is the limit to what most people can fit in their home theater room unless developers start building bigger houses with huge home theater rooms.
The advantage of a ceiling mounted front projector like the JVC DLA-X30 is that they cost under $3,500 and have outstanding black levels. Also the JVC DLA-X30 ceiling mounted projector is around 3 times cheaper compared to the Sharp LC-90LE745U 90 inch flat screen. The disadvantage of front projectors is that a dark room is needed for viewing and the advantage of flat LCD screens is the lights can be on for causal local news watching during the day.
As 90 inches and 100+ inch flat screens become more available we should start to see several for under $10,000 in the future as long as inflation does not increase too much. Possible 90 inch flat screens within 5 years might be under $5,000. There is a possibility that one day Front Projectors could disappear within a decade or so if large 100+ inch flat screens become very cheap.
The ideal flat screen in the far future would be an 8K or 4K 100 inch OLED that is as thin as a pencil. Possible several decades from now a 16K screen that is around 150+ inches and as thin as a poster could become a reality (it might even roll up like a poster for shipping and storage).
Sharp Unveils 1st 90-inch LED LCD TV
It looks like Sharp well terminate dealers accounts that ship 90 inch screens by the Internet/mail order and those retail stores that sell the sets to far below list price.
