FYI, Sams is now carrying the Sharp 80 inch. The price is not that great but their return policy is very good.
I LOVE my Sharp! I did notice a lip sync problem last night on a recording of "Shark Tank" but thats the first time I have seen it. I run the sound through an Arcam receiver and didn't think to check it via the external speakers.

For my experience, anytime I have run the sound thru my Sharp 70 incher and 80 incher I have never had any lip sync issue's at all.

And have had no issue's when running the optical out from the Sharps to my Bose 1SR soundbar.

Cheers

same here..no lip sync issues at all so far. i've had issues in the past, but it has always been source related and never the fault of the display.

That is what I've found as well , it's usually the source &/or the other equipment in the chain of signal

anyone have an opinion about transporting this thing on its SIDE?

NOT laying flat, but vertically tall.

You mean on end ? with the side being down one 1 side & the other side up ?
flat is the worse as it causes the glass to flex ( up & down )& break .
anything but the up right position (as it's made to ship that way) is NOT recommended, the display is made to ship/transport just one way, any other than that you risk damage .

do you really want to transport this display that would risk breakage ?

Yeah you might save a few bucks ,but if it's broke while doing that your outta a wad of $ .

I was a professional mover of corporate high end servers & display items Trust me on the above ^^^

This box is a beast. Before I saw it I was hoping it would fit in the back of odyssey with seats out...no way! Very glad I had it delivered.

I mainly get the lip issues when going into the menu then getting back out of it.

The only sync issues I have ever noted were in the coming attractions to the Blu-Ray version of "columbiana". And only like, 2 of them...the rest of the previews, the movie itself, and everything else sense has been spot on.

As far as moving it around lying down or on it side, the build quality cant be too weak considering the instructions for installing the stand have you flopping the unit face down on the box it was shipped in. Which I did solo...so I was lifting from one side, no creaking or flexing, layed it down, and hauled back up onto its stand just fine. I guess if you lay it face down in box and go speedbump jumping you might cause issue....

I've previously posted in this thread about bad lip sync issues. The manual for my A/V receiver warns that large flat panels might be susceptible to this, although I never had a problem with the Panasonic 65" plasma that formerly hung in the same spot (from the same mount).

Many receivers (mine included) have adjustment settings to correct the issues. I have had to go up to 220 ms to fine tune the correction.

The problems were most pronounced on 1080p material, such as Blu-ray or some of the 1080p movies from DirecTv. Strangely, while it was on that material that the adjustments were necessary, the adjustments really didn't create a reverse issue with non-1080p material.

Still, this set remains one of the marvels of modern science

Thanks,

Nick

Yeah that box is insane...I ended up calling a fiend with a pickup to meet me...good thing

Shes up & running...lookin good!

BUT...it looks like the unit is "twisted" when you look at it from the side! I measured the distance from the unit to the wall at the 2 top corners & its off by over 1/2"! It's fairly obvious when you see it from the side.

Im assuming this cant be good for the set...any ideas WHY its happening?

No idea why it's happening, but I would exchange it.

I can't recall which other large set (obviously nothing as large as this one!) but I think maybe the Sony hx929 (?) thread has some pix from owners seeing the same thing. From the side you could see some obvious curvature of the set along its width, and it usually wasn't regular.

I would exchange the set (sorry to say...)

I've sort of been waiting for this. As sets get bigger and thinner, how can they have much rigidity? Probably why so many people report screens shattered in shipping. I'm not talking this set in particular, but big big screens in general.

Actually this is the first report of damage on the 80 ive seen. also dont recal any in 70 inch forums either

A fair number of people have gotten the Samsung plasmas shattered via Amazon. Maybe a plasma is more glassy.

orlasttoy, just wondering how you transported it ? I admit, I was chicken to pick this set up and do it myself. I did transport my 70 with help of a friend though. It was from that experience that I thought it was best to have the 80 delivered. The 70 was hanging over the back of his pickup with the tail gate down, and laying on a diagonal across the width. I just didn't want to take any chances with this beast.

I'm sure everyone with the 80" is REALLY looking forward to tonight's game! I wish I had one
dxjnorto's Avatar dxjnorto 12:05 PM 02-05-2012
If it's tweaked, can you tweak it back? If the thing works, that would be my first ploy.

I mean, think of anything else that large and thin. It can be twisted.

As much as that should be true. It's not in my case. My friend that lives up the block has a 140 inch projection screen. He hosts the Super Bowl Party for the block.

So as much as I would love to stay home, I have to be social an attend.

Big front projectors are nice, but light control is an issue unless you have a VERY powerful projector. One of my buddies has a 100" that requires a totally dark room to look good. The Sharps perform well with lots of ambient light.

Yea, I know. The only reason I even consider going is because it will be dark by kick off. He doesn't have a dedicated home theater, it's in his living room, so light can be a big issue. The rest of the season, everyone comes here for the one and four o'clock games.

i don't think this is widespread just yet. my set is pretty parallel, you have to remember this set is nearly 4" thick for a reason.

that thickness is a good thing , that gives more of a even spread to the back lighted LED's
while thin looks good as in furniture , here in displays it's a slight thickness that helps the set give a even brite screen .

Are you going to run back and forth between the Elite and the 80? Or does the 80 rule today ?

I called a friend with a Ford pickup. Had to go diagonal as well, but the tailgate did close. Strapped down, it was pretty damn secure. No problemos!
