I wonder if this noise could be seen when displaying constant grey or color level.

Hmmm, hard to imagine then anything else than content as the source of noise. That would be confirmed by watching computer generated movie like Toy story. Essentailly there is no noise there so there should not be visible noise. If that is the case, the noise origin is from the content and it would mean the display is fine but at this size it also serves as fine enhancer of artefacts.

Im no pro reviewer, so I will just give my personal pro's and con's.

Pro's:
  1. HUGE. I sit about 10 feet away and this size is just perfect. Simply epic.
  2. Bright. All my previous panels were plasmas, so this was quite the experience seeing this puppy light up. Whites are stunning.
  3. Colors. Looked great with plenty of pop and wow factor.
  4. Sharpness. Crisp and detailed with no visible DSE. I get that "pristine picture quality" of a quality HDTV with the sheer size approaching that of a projector. Best of both worlds.

Con's
  1. Black Levels. Coming from an all plasma background, the black levels were underwhelming.
  2. Motion. Again, coming from an all plasma background, Im not a big fan of how LCD's handle motion. Lots of bluriness (yes, the noise setting is off).
  3. Uniformity. Some clouding on certain sections of the panel. Only noticeable with a majority black screen (NOT noticeable when there is a 100% black signal, as the screen shuts off).

This is the first time I went through a local dealer with an easy and up-front return policy as, being my first LCD, this was largely experimental. Even with the cons listed above, I am HAPPY and I am keeping it.

Did You happen to watch any sports on this set yet? If so how did it perform? I spent the Weekend looking at these at the Local B&M Stores, but none of them had them hooked up to a Live Sporting event.

Thanks for the review. I am still on the fence. I have one ordered, but I may swap it for the 65" VT30 before delivery. I really, really want the big set, but I am not a big fan of motion blur. Obviously you have decided that the pros out weight the cons, and I appreciate your first-hand opinion. Super low black levels and minor uniformity inconsistency's are not that big of a deal for me, so i guess I have to decide if I can live with a little blur.

How noticeable are reflections? Is the screen glossy? This is my biggest issue with the 70LE732. My older 65" Sharp had a matte surface and no reflections. The new one is not as bad as a Samsung - but I still get very disturbing room reflections.

Since I have a light controlled environment, reflections are not an issue. However, the screen is more matte-like so it should not be all that reflective in bright environments (dont take my word on this though as I have no way of testing it).

Here you go. This is a size comparison of a 52" versus the 80":



And here is a 65" versus the 80":

Any chance you can post a full room pic? It looks badass, for sure. Thanks for the pics you've posted so far.

Its a very small room. Was an unfinished basement that we split into a dedicated theater room for myself, and theres a laundry on the other side of the wall.

This is a pic from 2008 during installation (was almost done and had my Pioneer Elite being "broken in" - this is NOT the 80" Sharp, lol). Theres about 3-4 feet of space behind the recliners.

Lets see here...

Pioneer Kuro 6010
Pioneer Kuro Elite 150
Pioneer Kuro Elite 151
Samsung 63c7000
Samsung 64d7000

Also had a few projectors: Panasonic AE4000 and the JVC RS20. Got rid of them since they didn't provide that sharp and "pristine" image that HDTV's can display.

I think thats all of them, lol.

I was also surprised at how good the 55" LG LED TVs were. They looked better than the Samsung models and better than my 3 year old LG LCD TV. You think TVs cannot get any better, but they do. Pixelation, even at close range, is pretty much gone, and sharpness and contrast keep getting better. Too bad my eyesight does not get better with age as well.

At the low price of the Sharp, they should sell allot of them.

Just don't touch the LG Plasma that was at the shootout - came in dead last and was pathetic looking putrid with no blacks compared to the rest of the competition. That was supposed to be LG's best plasma but it truly sucked throughout the shootout.

Those pics are awesome! Congrats!
