Looks like these should be available at Retail now or in the next couple of weeks. The 832U series (40, 46, 52 and 60) appear to be the upgrade to last year's model but adding Quad Pixel(s). Interested to hear Owner's thoughts, setup tips etc...


Blurb from Sharp Web-Site -

http://www.sharpusa.com/ForHome/Home...C60LE832U.aspx

With the introduction of the LE832 Series, Sharp once again reinforces its leadership in LCD and LED technology. Sharp's proprietary quad pixel technology adds a fourth color, yellow, to the traditional RGB pixel format, enabling many colors to be displayed for the first time. Featuring more colors than any other television, see never-before-seen colors like sparkling golds, Caribbean blues and sunflower yellows. On the LC-60LE832U, this technology is enhanced further with Quad Pixel Plus, which produces smoother lines by enabling the individual control of all 8-million sub-pixels on the screen. A stunning new contemporary Edge lit design proudly announces a new AQUOS television direction.

The proprietary AQUOS LED system comprised of the X-Gen LCD panel and UltraBrilliant LED enables an incredible dynamic contrast ratio of 6,000,000:1 for excellent picture quality. AquoMotion 240 virtually eliminates blur and motion artifacts in fast-moving video. The LC-60LE832U features connected TV services, including the addition of Vudu apps, Netflix streaming video1, CinemaNow capability, along with the industry's leading online support system, AQUOS Advantagesm Live. And, with built-in WiFi, connectivity is easier than ever. Dual USB media players for portable video/music player are also included for your convenience.
Features
Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) Resolution - with more than 8 million dots for the sharpest picture possible.
Quad Pixel Plus -enables the processing of images with higher resolution and less jags in diagonal lines.
Quad Pixel Technology - RGBY filter adds yellow to the traditional RGB sub-pixel components, enabling the display of many colors never before seen on TV.
UltraBrilliant LED system - includes a unique "double-dome" light amplifier lens and multi-fluorescents, enabling high brightness and color purity.
Full HD 1080p X-Gen LCD Panel - is designed with advanced pixel control to minimize light leakage and a wider aperture to let more light through, providing the industry's highest contrast level.
AquoMotion 240 - virtually eliminates blur and artifacts on fast-motion picture quality.
AQUOS LINK - enables convenient control of AQUOS Blu-ray Disc players.
Connected TV Services - delivers Netflix, CinemaNow and Vudu streaming video, customized Internet content and live customer support via built-in Wi-Fi. (Netflix membership required for Netflix instant streaming. Membership and/or additional fees may apply.)

Set has finally been setup and I'm playing around with settings from the 810 thread as this set appears to be its successor.

Out of the box this set had a washed out and overly bright look but after using some of the calibration #'s from the 810 and other threads I have a good PC (Hooked to HTPC) and User1 setting that works for everything else.

This is my first LED TV and I'm spoiled by the viewing angles that Plasma offer so again I'm just now getting used to the limitations of LED in terms of viewing angle.

Still do not see this set on Amazon but the 3D Version (835U) is listed and now has 1 review.

No, everything seems pretty smooth. Been playing MLB 2011 on the Xbox 360 all night.

quesiton, how long to power on the tv? I couldn't believe the 810 took 13 seconds to power on.

if you can post some pictures of some games on your xbox 360 in action it would be great!

From a cold (left off overnight) set I stop watched it at 7 seconds.

Lspera - what is your take away from image quality out of the box?

LOVING my new TV. I shopped for 4 months before stumbling on this beauty. In my opinion you can't get a better TV for the price.

A couple of days ago I was considering purchasing this set for my wife, but went with the 920 instead. Spec wise it looks as though they are essentially the same set, but the 832 is about 40 lbs lighter. If it wasn't for the fact that Fry's electronics was blowing out the 920 I would bought this set.

I have NEVER purchased a Sharp TV before, but yet in the last two weeks I have purchase the 925 & 920. Go figure....

Looks like the 920 is missing "Connected TV Services" -- I take it this means Internet? Would like to see what settings folks are using. I borrowed settings from the 810 threads with some tweaks.

One of the things that sold me on the 832 was the size or lack of size for a 60 inch display.

yeah the difference between the 920 and 832 is that the 832 comes with an updated interfance (sort of), more internet option and the TV has a smaller bizel/profile and is lighter. Performances wise, I believe they are probably very similar.

So, I take it you are a happy camper with your purchase? Care to give us your overwall opinion on the set with the strenghts and weaknesses?

Hi All.

New member here. Just picked up the 832 today and found this thread. TV definitely has all the goods, but need some help in calibration. I'm playing around with now and will share results, but I'm looking for a good baseline to start with. Others have mentioned using 810 settings, so I'll search through the site looking for those. Thanks!

Let us know what you come with. I used several of the settings in the 810 thread and tweaked them a bit. My 832 out of the box was way off - colors blown out etc... Especially on 1080P content from a connected Media Center PC. After setting up PC, User1 etc... I now have settings that are more to my liking. I also needed to setup a mode for OFF ANGLE Viewing as I use this set in our family room and when viewing from the kitchen nook off angle the colors again are blown out.

I had never seen a 810 in person until yesterday - someone had returned a 810 to Costco and they had it on display - I'm amazed at how much they slimmed down the 832 as the 810 is huge. They had the new Vizio 65 inch next to the 810 and the 810 looked bigger.


Settings from the 810 Thread that I tried/am using or tweaked.

Hello,

I too saw this TV at a local warehouse store and thought it looked really good (even w/o tweaking).

Any updates on thoughts thus far from those that own this?

Thanks!

I think that the few folks on this forum who have this set are too busy watching/adjusting/testing to post So far I am really liking the set - 60 inches out of a set that only last year would have been several inches larger to accommodate not to mention how light comparably this set is. I was in the market for the Sony BRAVIA KDL60NX810 60-Inch - which is considerably more expensive (nearly double) and having not seen the NX810 60 inch in person YET - I'm happy with this set.

I have had the TV set up for about 4 hours now and the picture is alot better than my old TV a panasonic that I bought last year. I think the I made the right choice.

Just unpacked my 832U two days ago and have thrown some processing switches so far but have not yet adjusted hues, temps, contrasts, etc. I'm a little bit nervous because I was watching the HBO Pacific series on Blu Ray last night and experienced some wicked halo artifacts in high-contrast areas. Soldiers were walking with their rifles on their backs against an overcast white sky and the TV seemed to be freaking out all over the black barrels of the guns when they moved. I watched more intently after that and picked up on the effect in many more areas. I'm hoping a decent calibration will fix this (just purchased S&M) but out-of-the box, I'm disappointed. I will do more exhaustive testing and report back. Has anyone else experienced this?

I'd say the guy from bestbuy pulled one from his ass. Not sure why he would invent something like this. I can't find anything regarding this "issue" on that model. If you want to be safe, just ask the owners in this thread, I'm sure if someone like this was a widespread issue, we'd have someone who would have witness it.

Can you post pictures of this issue? Also, have you notice the same issue with other bluray or sources?

Put Aquomotion 240 off, it creates artifacts.

It worked for me anyway! (sharp le925)

The processor isn't bad I think, maybe some heat problems and problems with the 240hz scanning.
