Depends on which PQ u like. Some like the brighter more vibrant colors others see no difference or just dont care. Both r good tvs IMO. Better act on the 70" 632 as it is going to be discontinued by most stores as stock is getting low. I know it goes to closeout status for some stores next week. You might still be able to find it after that but its always risky to gamble. Some stores may even increase the price, don't buy it over $2k.

I have the 70" 632 and just purchased the current 80" Sharp 632 instead of waiting for the 80" 844 Sharp to be released in April.

Buying the 80 incher a few days ago for well under 4K seemed like a much better deal to me than the $6,400.00 MSRP of the soon to be released 80 incher.

I am very happy with the picture quality of both my 70" and 80" Sharps.

Cheers

I really doubt most people would feel there is a big difference, especially since you will only have one in your living room. The current offer at Best Buy is exceptional. Enjoy.

And you may ask yourself well how did I get here?
And you may ask yourself am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself: What have I done?!

There is very little real world image quality difference (beyond marketing) and on some aspects the 632 is actually superior. I would say it's not worth the $600, an obvious image quality jump would require moving to a smaller 60" 83x series or of course an Elite PRO-X5.

I love my 632, and that endorsement from Rogo re the price makes me feel even better, since I got it for $1899 at Costco the day before Thanksgiving. And to think that some got it via the Fry's doorbuster deal for $1499!

Run to get it!!

I have a 70 inch 632 and was thinking about swapping it out for a 732/733 as I am within my 90 day return period and the 733 is only $100 more in price than what I paid for my 632. The TV picture on my 632 looks good after calibration, but the clarity could be improved and I am experiencing motion blur during football games. Does the AquoMotion 240 on the 733 improve motion blur even though most people keep it turned off? And is there any improvement in clarity with the 733 over the 632?

I can think of several ways to spend the $600 that will have much more impact on your viewing enjoyment--audio upgrade, a BD player if you don't already have one, etc.
