So would you guys recommend the LC70LE745U model, I got a 65LM6200 that I can still return and upgrade to the 70" Sharp which I believe many mentioned as being non-glare. The glossy finish of the LG is just killing me.

The Sharp is semi-non-glare. It's not a matte finish like so many LCDs had until recently, but it helps somewhat.

How's the3D performance ? Most negative reviews indicate a lot of ghosting.

Very little ghosting on my 70"
I love the 3D.
The quality varies from one title to another, due to authoring challenges.
Mostly perfectly rendered and the rare slight defects are easy to ignore.

What are you watching? Isn't there a setting in the TV that makes it fill at least one of the two dimensions? 'Auto-Size' or something...


I'm watching regular television on Shaw satellite. I do get HDTV channels, of course, and when I record a show in HD on the PVR it does fill the screen. The problem is that most channels are not on HDTV, that includes all the local channels. I can see where there would be bars on top or sides but both? It just seems there ought to be a way to slowly dial up the size of the picture until it fills the screen. The only way I've found to do that is using the zoom feature, but then you lose a lot of clarity. As it stands, most of the shows on TV only show as if I had a 55 inch TV.

Hello All, I just picked up my new 70LE745U a couple days ago. We had a few people over to watch the hockey game and everyone was impressed with the color and how it looked. I am really happy so far with this TV,

I do have a question for anyone who has more experience with these TV's then I do.

I have been having trouble with the 3D, I have been playing with the 3D depth setting to try and get rid of the ghosting around the images. On the main menu of the movie, the menu is almost un-readable because of the ghosting around the words. (I think it is ghosting, a dimmer duplication of the object moved slightly to the side?) I have tried every depth level on the tv and it never gets much better. It seams like if the depth would go a little lower, maybe around -12 it would be perfect, but the adjustment cuts off at -10. I am using a PS3 for the 3D movies, would a proper 3D player work better? Would it have more adjustments for the 3D to help make it clearer? The playstation has none.

A second question is, has anyone used the monsterVision 3D glasses with this TV? I have heard they work with sharp, but with my research nothing other then the sharp glasses work with this particular model. I have read that they have a sensor that will go over the IR output on the TV and convert it to RF and you have a lot of settings that potentially could eliminate the ghosting problems and make 3D view-able.

LC-70LE745U

1 day owner here. Still undecided on the picture. Looks to me like there is a haze over everything. Anyway my question was about the 3d glasses. Not sure I can stomach the 50$ cost of the sharp ones. I found some "universal" Sony PS3 Active glasses for a steal. They came in today and are apparently not compatible (3d test doesnt look any different on or off). Wanted to check if I was missing something obvious before I send them back?

Thanks

I too did some looking around for glasses. Here in the store they wanted $120 each. It was a joke. So I did some research and also grabbed a couple pairs of the ps3 glasses. I could not get them to work either. After some research there is no other glasses that will work other then the sharp ones. Very dissapointed about that.

The Sharp glasses work very well, though.
On a $3,000 television, they are a small investment.
Of course, my $3,000 included 2 pairs of the Sharp glasses...

Unpaid $3000 but it didn't come with any. I ended up getting the store to match the price I found on amazon of $80 so I picked up 4 pairs. If you can find them for $50 jump on that.

The 20 and 30 series are IR based - the 40 series works with Bluetooth and are not backward compatible with the 2012 and 2011 Sharp 3D panels. They only work with the 2013 3D lineup....

The LC60LE745U is $1,299 at Amazon.com and the 2013 LC60LE657U is $1,199 (+ tax) at Costco. Anyone know which one is the better value for me to get? The 745u doesn't come with glasses, while the 657u comes with two.

Most interested in watching sports on the TV and gaming. Can't find any info, but I'm assuming both have the "Vyper" game mode, right?

Went through this pain today, was at Best Buy to buy glasses for my 70", they sold me 2 of the AN-3DG40 and they wouldn't pair with the TV once I got home. Called Sharp and they told me only the 20/30 models are compatible with LC-70LE745U. Best Buy I purchased from didn't have any in stock so I had to drive across town to return the 40's and get a pair of 30's. I'm using a PS3 for 3D playback, Monsters Inc. looked gorgeous but Nightmare before Christmas had lots of ghosting even after I fiddled with 3D depth settings, not sure if it's the media or PS3 or what, I'd like to see more feedback on the 3D and what works for people.

For what its worth, I liked the 30 model more than the 40 model when I had it on. Although the 30 model look more like cyclop glasses (xmen), but they feel better on and have a slider to switch between off/2d/3d and they are rechargeable. 40 model uses watch battery with estimated life of 80-100 hours and look atrocious.

I snagged the 70 model 745U for $1700 if you have a Fry's nearby.

http://www.frys.com/product/7191392

I'm honestly disappointed with the game mode if reaction speed is something you're looking for, "vyper" mode exists but it only reduces input delay, not eliminates. I had upgraded from a LC-60E79U and this baby had no input delay at all in game mode. I currently changed my display settings in game mode from 720p to 720i to improve my input delay to tolerable levels.

The following website has input delay ratings and the LC60LE745U you're looking into has a bad rating with 63ms response.

http://www.displaylag.com/display-database/

Regarding sports, I was watching NHL/NBA games this weekend and had no blurring issues with the motion enhancement setting at 120mhz low, loving this aspect of it.

Couple of questions for70" 745 owners please. How do you think the 745 will compare to it's 2013 replacement from Sharp (same panel etc?) and how do you think it compares to the new Sony 70R550A which is of course passive 3D vs. the 745's Active 3D?

I have lip sync issues only with blu rays from the ps3 on the 70le745u....everything is run through a Sony receiver with hdmi. The cable box is fine the western digital media player streaming 1080p movies is fine but actual blu rays from the ps3 are slightly out of sync. I'm assuming it's the Sony receiver with the Sharp And I haven't tried to directly hook the ps3 to the tv yet. I'm upgrading my receiver and sub woofer soon as I need 7.1 multi zone for my new pre wired theatre room, but just wondering if anyone else had this same issue

I have it on some Netflix through apple TV but mu Harman 7550HD has a sync timing control which fixed it. No issue with PS3 running into TV (the HK has issues passing 3D)

Any reason why you're using Apple tv for Netflix and not the built in app. Is the NO not ARC compatible?

Hi all, first post here but I've been a "passive" member for quite some time smile.gif

Having difficulties in getting a proper picture out of my Sharp 60' LE745U. My main use-cases are 720/1080 movies from my computer and PS3/Xbox gaming - both via HDMI.

The issue is mainly visible with more brighter scenes - i.e outside/skies the picture tends to "break/tear" between colors and turn even purple/blue even. Or if sun is reflecting from somewhere it looks quite bad. By turning down contrast a lot it seems to get rid of it but the downside is that by turning down contrast, I'm also loosing whites. i.e the white folders in Windows look very dark and blueish.

Maybe I'm doing something fundamentally wrong or trying to fix it with the wrong controls but I was able to get a perfect picture from my smaller LG LH5000 which was suitable for gaming, computer and movies.

Ps! I'm using the "GAME" mode as it has the least input lag and no stuttering cause of the picture enhancements.

Any help/guidance is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Use the disc from this site and calibrate the 10 point white temperature.
Pay attention to the top couple of white bars -- eliminate the clipping first and then adjust the color.
My preference is a slightly 'sunny' color, rather than a bluish-white, even though it can't get as bright with these LED backlights.
The above is my adjustments that tamed the issues you talk about on my own model. Good luck!

Johnfull,

I changed settings several times, but eventually settled on your settings for 3D a 2D; I believe they're the best.

I turned up my Film Mode to advanced for both 2D and 3D viewing and it looks great. Thanks.smile.gif

Do you leave the 120Hz on or off for both 3D and 2D?

I use the Panasonic BDT220P for my viewing...What do you think?

Glad you like the settings. I've not tinkered with them for a long, long time now.
As for the 120 setting; the 3D mode deactivates the option because it's on by default in order to make the alternating images.
I leave it set at 120 for 2D without any problem. It's a bit hard to understand why someone would turn it off.
Maybe, in the old days, the processors on the TVs would have a hard time at that rate, but not on these sets.
I use a Denon universal player, which controls the TV perfectly.

I found these settings for my LE-745U at http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/sharp-lcd-tv/sharp-le745u-calibration.html I think their setting is pretty good since it was calibrated using my TV.

I really love theirs now.

Johnfull,

I went back to your settings.
Their setting was too yellowish. Yours is far superior.

Thanks again.smile.gif
