70 inch LED 240 HZ

Hey Guys- My wife and I just closed escrow on a beautiful Penthouse in Downtown San Diego. We currently do not have a tv at the moment, but are looking for a wall mountable 70 inch LED with a 240 HZ refresh rate. Could someone steer me in the direction I need to go for this. Thanks!

Not sure what your budget is, but the only one I know of is Sharp when it comes LED. In this case, it's LED-LCD. There is a cheaper one at $3k, but it's 120 HZ only, not 240.

^ Thanks. Our budget is around 4-5K. I've seen a few we are looking for size wise, but they all have the 120 HZ refresh rate. I heard there was a high end audio/video place, either here in Downtown, or in La Jolla. Is this correctI

^ That is amazing, but for our condo the flat screen would look more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Also would like to know about ways I could electronically make the tv disappear during certain times when we have company over. Anyone have any websites for a place like this?

Re: 70 inch LED 240 HZ

If you want the TV to disappear then whay Spikey sugested is best. Your in the penthouse so there has to be some space right above you. You can add and electric screen that hides when not in use. The same for the projector. They have mounts that with the touch of the remote can rotate into the ceiling and you would never know it was there. It will cost you a pretty penny for install but it awesome.

Personally I'd get the Panny 65" Plasma

As for pimping out your set, check this out;

Well, I'm not exactly an expert on that specific section of HT fun. But what do you have in mind? Some have mechanisms that drop the flat panel TV into a cabinet, or lift a projector screen into the ceiling. Or there are drapes or doors that could go in front of either type of screen.

Not to try to sway you, but a good projector screen install beats the pants off any sort of flat panel for looks. Esp with electric hiding of some sort. That's not even a contest. But it would probably nick your budget quite a bit. I'd probably have to recommend a lesser projector at that point.
