The Sharp Aquos LC-65D93U is a 65" LCD full HDTV delivering a 1080p picture. It features a very fast 4 ms response time (8 ms is more typical of an LCD), and high contrast ratio (15,000:1 dynamic, 3000:1 native). It first became available in March, 2007 and retails for around $9000. The large size, and great contrast and response specs at a good price make this an LCD worth considering. However, reports of banding because of a defect at the Sharp K2 plant, and the noticeable omission of HDMI 1.3 support (only supports HDMI 1.2a) are points you should consider as well.

Consider the Samsung FP-T6374 63" plasma as an alternative to this 65" LCD.

Based upon reputation and history alone I'd imagine that the new plasms from Pioneer will definitely give this set a run for its money. Ignoring price again :)

This seems to be one of the best televisions of 2007 (when ignoring price). Has anyone found a better option in either the LCD or Plasma space?
