OK, so I've been absent for a few days after purchasing two TV's, the 65" Panny VT30 and the 80" Sharp.
For my setup a few things can't be ignored, the size of my room/wall and the incredible amount of glare off of the Panny. With those two factors I am keeping the 80" Sharp. To be honest, the Panny pic is in a different league compared to the Sharp. The Sharp looks OK but the Panny was AMAZING.
I followed the set up thread here and made the necessary adjustments and the picture is still just OK. My 7 yr old Pio Pro Elite plasma looks better and also have less motion lag despite being only 60hz.
I really hope there are a few adjustments that can still be made to the Sharp to improve the picture. But for now, out of my 3 viewing options, 50" Pio Pro Elite (7yrs old), Epson 6500UB on 134" screen and now the Sharp, it is fair to say the Sharp has the least impressive picture.
Sitting in the kitchen, about 30' from the Sharp it looks great but once within about 12' or so which is where the couch is, the picture is not that great.
So, does anyone have a recommendation on how to get a better picture out of the Sharp?
