Default Will Sharp 920 be tested

Hello, I am new to this forum and through it found out about the shootout.
I was wondering if the new Sharp 920 (2D) set will be tested. A dealer in my area thinks it is superior to the VT25 (he sells both).
I know reviews on the 810 and 820 have been pretty good, but color accuracy is way off-yet they say the picture looks good.
Anyway, interested to see how the new Sony does also.

I seriously doubt the Sharp will look better. What is the price difference and since the Sharp is 2D only it should be much lower but I bet it isn't, and could be WHY the dealer prefers (higher profit margins for him just maybe ) that.

Since this event is about the premium manufacturer's flagship models we're including Sharp's 925 3D.

Don't miss the live webcast, follow the link above. For more information on the event go to.

I'd really crackup if it did though. But I also doubt it will look better.

I don't think any TV in a lower price point will match it.

Maybe if Samsung or LG do something new, then maybe! But I don't think a second tier LCD will.

Just my opinion.

Sharp isn't 2nd tier IMO. They own more patents on LCD displays than I think any of the other LCD mfg.

very true.

So far the Panny VT wins. LG looked really good. Day 2 will sort it all out.

Will you guys be testing film modes like Samsung's Cinemasmooth to see how much they affect picture quality after calibration?

I tried watching it but for some reason I couldn't hear anything even with volume turned all the way up.
