Holy Cow. :eek:

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

It is LCD, it's just backlight by LED instead of CCFL.

Yeah, it's thin, but that PQ sure is blurry.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Personally I could care less if it's skinnier, I want the best (or at least very close to the best) picture quality. If that means the TV is 3" or even 5" thick then whoop-de-do, it's still mounted on the wall and barely sticking out. Now, if you're talking Kuro (or even better - Elite) PQ in a one inch (or less) thick panel I'm very interested but the Sharp's don't get the best reviews for PQ.
