Sony and Sharp put out the prices of their 2012 lines, and come on, guys. Sharp's top-end 80-inch model is $6,500, scaling down to $1100 for a 46-inch, and an unpriced 42-incher. Sony's top-end models didn't get prices, but its 55-inch second tier model is $2300. Samsung's 75-inch monster's going for $8000, and Panasonic's top 65-inch for $4000. LG's prices will be out soon too, and will probably look very similar—meaning a lot. But the TVs look so very good.
None of this is necessarily a surprise-TVs cost money!-but it's a little disappointing that all the new-jack beauty is still so out of reach. [HD Guru via Engadget, Vanns]
