This looks too good to be true, any one bought from them before?

Had Chad from HDTVbyChadB come to my house last evening and calibrate my 735U. I couldn't be happier. After countless calls to Sharp, repairs from Sharp that did nothing, Chad was able to come out and just hook this thing up.
I've never had a tv calibrated in the past and was skeptical about it's success, but so worth it. Worth the additional money and worth waiting for Chad to do it. He spent about 4 hours here and explained every step that he was taking and what he was looking for in the final settings. Professional throughout and easy to work with considering my wife and I still play favoritism to the bright colors of a showroom tv - although not as bright as this tv was putting out in Dynamic mode.
Definately worth a call to have Chad out at your place if you're having similar issues - I'll be recommending him to everyone I speak to.

Is this the average price for a this? Also, what's the difference between the 735u and 732u? I noticed the 732u was about 500 bucks cheaper, so I was thinking about going with that to save some money if the differences were substantial. Thanks!

735 is 3D. 732 is not.

A proper calibration changes this tv from an average LED tv, to an outstanding tv. It improves it that much.

BB delivered mine today! They'll be back to do the calibration on Fri. I am impressed! Now, I need 3D glasses and 3D Blu Ray, so recommendations most appreciated! I looked at the Sharp Blu Ray players and am concerned they get so-so reviews. Is the compatability worth it?

If you do go with BB, require them to do the 10 point calibration in movie mode, not just adjustments to CMS hue, CMS value, CMS saturation, and color temperature. Make sure in color temperature they select low, and then turn on 10 point and calibrate each point in addition to all the others listed above. If they don't do the 10 point, you have thrown your money away. Don't let them give you excuses. If they won't do the 10 point, send them home and get a refund.

Get an Oppo blu ray if you can afford it, otherwise, I'd put Panasonic, then Sony, as the best consumer-grade players.

Avatar and Hugo were both GREAT 3D experience movies. If pop-outs are your thing, there are better choices. IMAX Under the Sea is a good one, so is Kung Fu Panda 2.

I bought my 735U from them after Black Friday. I've never been happier! I have not experienced or noticed any clouding and I am satisfied using some of the calibrations posted here.
I recommend East Coast TV.

I've had Chad out to calibrate several displays over the years - he is absolutely top notch!

Btw, I now seeing the newer 745 model runs cheaper than the 735. So, for one that's looking for a 70" 3D capable TV (99.9% TV, 0.1% movie), which should I go for?

He, Chad, does come down to DC area quite often. Just contact him from his web site or send him a PM in here.

And for around 4500 you can step up to the new 80 inch 3d version. Just sayin

more importantly the 745 is only edge lit not full array. Glad I got my 735 when I did.

Hi Guys,

I'm down in Australia but moving back to the UK soon.

I'm looking at the 70inch Sharp as my next TV and wondered if you guys could help given they have been out for some time in the U.S.

To help, I have compared your models to UK models on both Sharp web sites and they are as follows:

LC70LE735U (US) = LC70LE836E (UK) Aquos Quattron 3D full array back lit

LC70LE745U (US) = LC70LE741E (UK) Aquos 3D edge lit

So my question is, once calibrated, would I be wasting money going for a Quattron 3D over an Aquos 3D, is there any real noticeable difference with the yellow pixel after calibration.

Any owners or calibrators out there, your input would be more than welcome as this is most definitely our TV of choice once back in the U.K.

If there is no discernable difference then we may even go the 80inch if it becomes available as 3D, currently only 80inch Aquos but full array backlit.

Many Thanks

In theory full array backlight should be better. That being said it is still "on or off" and the diffusers for edge lit are a lot better.....

I am curious with a calibrated panel
1. Uniformity
2. Color
3. Contrasr

I would surly go for the LE735. The yellows are magnificent. The Quadron also impacts other hues such as the blue sky. We bought the said model and never looked back.

Sharp's own 3D Blu Ray player is very much sought after. Most retailers have sold them out. The disc drawer is slow to open but it makes up for it by reading the Blu Ray discs very fast - almost the speed of a PS3.

Another nice thing is the Aquos Link. Once you turn on the Blu Ray player, the TV switches its input to whichever HDMI the unit is connected to. The picture quality is top notch.
