I still have a 42" Vizio LCD bought in 2007, that had its board replaced after 2 months, been solid ever since. Survived moving between 3 states, and on average a move every 1.5 years, so it's been a workhorse. Maybe I got lucky...
Keep us posted, I think the refurb will be fine. Also, you could try and sell if on Craigslist once you get it and move to something else.
Before - 60" Sharp Aquos LC60E77UN
After - 80" Sharp Aquos LC-80LE844U
I am using the following HDMI cable for 3D Bluray watching
The wall mount I used was a Sanus VuePoint F808 Low Profile Wall Mount.
For 3D glasses I currently own 4 pairs of Sharp's an3dg20b model
I also purchased and use 2 pairs of Monstervision Max 3D glasses
The Monstervision glasses system uses RF and not IR technology. It came with an adapter for converting the IR signal to RF. The adapter however, did need its firmware upgraded in order to work with the Sharp LC-80LE844U TV. I actually prefer the picture from these glasses over the Sharp name brand glasses.
I've been enjoying this TV everyday ever since it was delivered 2 weeks ago. The picture defintely needed calibrating, but that was done quickly. Highly recommend this unit to anyone who wants a large screen for less $$ than the competition.
I got these Xpand glasses from Best Buy.
They work great with my 844U and since they are large they fit perfectly over my prescription glasses.
Iv read 20 pages, my Sharp Aquos 70 shuts off during films 3 to 5 times a week or pretty much every other film.
Was their any conclusion? Its to confusing at the end of a long day to then battle my TV that resets.
I have to every night unplug it and plug it back in (thats when it does not shut off) It will freeze solid.
Did people find a solution?
I cant say Ill ever get another Sharp anything ever, especially the squaretrade.,com extended warranty.
Hating this TV!
The problem I have is the remote controls both TV's at the same time. I have two of the same brand Sharp TV's in the same room.
My set re-boots on its own periodically, interrupting movies or TV broadcast in the process.
It first happened under warranty and Sharp tried to repair it with 4 service calls.
Then they sent a refurbished set that would not power on at all (!).
Now they are promising a brand new set over 2 years after the problem first appeared.
I haven't been given a date of delivery as yet. Holding my breath that it will not be a lemon...
Well anyway, Sharp customer service has now agreed to swap my old 844u with the new Sharp 80uq17u. I have no idea how that TV is and I see there is a 104 page thread on the 2014 series. Well, it will take me some time go through it. Its edge lit though because Sharp does not make Full Array any more. So I am welcoming myself into the Flashlighting club with the extra bonus of clouds all over. Plus it has some sort of marketting BS called Q+ which CNet is panning in their review.
So long 844 thread. It was a great TV with absolutely stunning picture while it lasted.
At $14.99 a pair, I ordered a pair of these glasses to try out.
Anyone use these glasses with the 844U?
I was able to calibrate contrast, brightnesss, color and tint, but feel like the grayscale is way off. The color was just not right either.
Is there a thread with a some recommened tv settings to get me going? I feel like I might have something turned on or selected that I should not. Please help!!!!
I tried to adjust grayscale with my eyepro 2 and could not get blues to come down between 30-70% grayscale. I was using HCFR for software.
better than out of the box. Yellow pixel throws off gauge readings,
so these are going to look better:

I used this web article and it worked great
You download and make a DVD and then walk through the settings using the DVD.
I have this TV, which I love to death, but I'm taking it off the wall and putting it back onto the stand. Problem is I can't find the screws. Can anyone tell me the specs (size/length/thread) please? The only thing I can get from Sharp and others is the part number for the screw replacement bag, which is 12 screws (only 4 of which are the ones I need).

I sit 10ft away from my 844 and I love it. Can't speak to the brightness as mine is in a basement.
Also, 5" is not a big difference, but size does matter...
Any experience in moving such a large TV with a moving company?
