It seems that no matter what brand, what model yada yada yada every display has a problem of some kind. The key is finding the one you can live with. IMO minimal clouding only on a very dark or pure black screen is almost a non issue.

I wanna go ahead and pull the trigger on my 847, but I'm gonna hold off a lil while longer. My wife just got done spending wayyyyyyyyyyy to much money on remodeling my 5 yr old house ( I could rant on this for hours but I'll spare you) So she is really pushing for me to go ahead and get my new Tv and new speakers so she wont feel so bad about the money she spent....holding off and gonna use this to my full advantage

I even went so far as to tell her I was gonna have to sell my harley to pay for her crap! That got the guilt rolling

why not go "Full Monty"with the 844 ? 10" means alot ....
And it's a full back lit array & there have been No Issues with clouding on the 80"ers 844 &/Or the 632(back lighted full array as well)
( I love my 632 80" couldn't wait on the 945) the fact of near Zero issues & an added 10" is a No Brainer , yeah the wife says it's too big but she said that when I got a 60"

And no lcoal dimming

I agree - these are nice sets. But the full array dimming, if watching in a dark enviorment, is so impressive. Also 80" with a small "man cave" like mine might be too big

Too BIG ? really ? 10" more is not that over-sized as you are thinking a 70" anyway .
Local dimming does not have all kinks worked out yet that is a major reason the 945 is not here .. as they still have not settled that issue with the Elites as well ,they sorta fixed it but it not a done deal .. . with a 80" going for $3700 why wait .. but it's your boat that has to float >>>

The 60" is what I'm looking at and I'm just not sure my room is big enough to support a 70" TV, I have a 52 right now and I just feel like a 60 would be just the ticket and the price on the new 847 is really good. I just mounted my 52 on the wall over the weekend because she bought a new Tv stand/cabinet that is fully enclosed (like I told her not too) and I refuse to put my ps3 and AVr receiver in it and burn it up....what is it with women not believing a word we say? I told her you cant put electronic stuff in a closed area, her reply : Then why would they make them that way:

Just to prove her wrong I put my ps3 in there, left the door open and within 30 minutes the fan kicked on, the fan has never kicked on in the 4 years I had my ps3...she said: Huh, I guess you were right....luckily in planning for the future I put a mount up that says its good for 200 lbs....I'll ck out the 844 and see, but I'm just not sure it wouldnt be too big and I would end up with SDE...I sit 10' to 12' away.....

I sit 10 to 11' away(depending on the set back on the recliners) , the total immersion effect of the screen is to die for @ 80"s
I get no S O E , I can move up to 6 feet away & I see no pixels there either . the colors Pop , detail is Razor Sharp ! Even in my living room in full daylight , the room has a 16' picture window drapes closed it's still very bright .

& you can set the 844 & 632 to stop all S O P add in that no one has reported clouding &/Or Dirty Screen Effect , dark corners , all have been reported on the other Sharp models both 2011 & 2012 models 60" & 70"
even the Elites has a problem with DSE Suzook has had 3 Elites with DSE

watched baseball & Golf yesterday no motion issues there either
mine is set to 120 low

I looked at it, no 3d....which isnt huge, but it would be nice to have. I think I'm going to have to decide on a 60 or 70...

So I am sitting about 7-8 feet away... so the 73" DLP (which when reduced to elimite overscan is 71") seems about right. Still when playing battlefield or COD I need to "scan" the bottom corner of the screen.

After contacting one of the SHARP reps, I have been informed that the LC-70LE945U is still due to come out in mid to late June. I hope this is true as I do not want to settle for "decent" 847 model.

Another user confirmed it also - http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...postcount=1529

It turns out that LC-70LE735U hasn't been discontinued yet, and they will have some other full array units coming out this summer, here is a copy & past e-mail I got from Sharp Tech Support:
"Dear Xxxxxx,
We are happy to help. This model has not yet been discontinued. We do have a full array 70" 3D unit coming out this year, and it is our LC70LE945U. It is slated for Summer release. Here are some of the specifications of the unit.
240Hz / Quattron 4-color / 3D / Quad Pixel Plus 2 / Full Array Backlit / Local Dimming panels. Built in Wifi and Full Smart Central UI, Web browser and global apps search."
The WiFi is kind of cool, but not necessary.

. This model has not yet been discontinued

Not yet being the key words there....I may have to hold off a while longer on the 847, to see if indeed this model does come out. It's going to be hard once you have your mind set on something to wait...and wait. But June is only 2 months away, I am curious though what the $$ difference will be. If the MSRP listed on page 1 of this thread is correct, your talking about $1,000 cost diff from the 847 to the 945, have to be alot there to justify that.

The difference between edge lit (845) and full array back lit with local dimming (945) is massive, all else being equal.

I just got some bad news from the sharp rep and her managers today at my store. There will be no 945 series this year. They pushed it to 2013.

Is it a Joke ? Sharp did the same cancelation last year with the LE935 which were also local dimming. What's wrong with local dimming and Sharp? It seems that the LE945 are vapoware/fake. What a frustration again

I don't think that they have completely solved the pulsing issue that has plagued the Elite's & until that is solved they will delay the 945 .... that's only a guess on my part .....
............ . it's still just a rumor that the 945 is delayed
There has been NO Official word from Sharp about the 945's
The sales rep's have already proven to be very unreliable about anything ...

I'd buy the 632 or 844 80"ers before that 847 due to it being a Edge lighted display
the 632,633 & the 844 a Full Back Lighted LED Arrays ... Big Difference in overall PQ IMO

If the Elite line goes 4K in 2013 or simply disappears, then it makes the 945 much more likely for 2013 release.

I think delay, for the reasons you cite. I do think Elite will be bumped to 4K in the next go round. I think this all happens in the Fall.
