You didn't experience any "stuttering" with the picture on modes other than GAME? The issue is that GAME mode does not have the 10 point settings.
You wouldn't happen to have any settings for GAME mode?
You might try various settings of the Film Mode to see if you can get the stuttering to subside.
Someone in my household likes the 'soap opera effect', so I turned the Advanced setting to maximum and
find little to complain about. The additional processing is handled well by the hardware and moving objects
are realistically propelled across the screen. Hopefully, some combination will work the kinks out for you...

I noticed burn-through of whites when I first set mine up, but it now looks fine in strong daylight.
It is correct, though, that the actual LCD panel and the LED backlights don't have break-in...
New owner of the LC-60LE745U. Now it's on closeout at Best Buy for a good deal! Aesthetic looks very good, wife will be pleased.
My current impression is while it is far from perfect, it can still be worked to satisfaction with some tweaks. However, I will always wonder if there is something else out there better for a little more money
First, my view of the Pros to this TV:
- Fair black level - 0.60%
- Matte screen
- 120 Hz capable (more on that latter)
- 3D capable (more on this latter, too)
- Edge lit LED = thin
- Bad motion processing flexibility
- Out of the box takes a fair amount of tweaks to get color to look fair
- 120 Hz does not equate to smooth motion, no Aqua-Motion
- Non-standard Active 3D (I also prefer movie theater like Passive 3D)
- Input Lag 63ms, 4 frames delay. Not very good for gaming
- Edge lit LED = clouding,flashlighting,DSE
The first few days it was a frustrating experience. First the best buy "Pro" loading guy put it in my SUV with screen facing down, when I noticed it half way home the arrow on the box was pointing the wrong way, I wondered if that is what caused previous posts' cracked screen.
Tried CNet & LCDTvBuyingGuide settings, and the picture looks washed out. Input lag other than Game mode is too noticeable. Used AVS HD.709 test Bluray to calibrate, and could not get both 24P and 1080i motion tests to become smooth at the same time. SOE with artifacts were pretty bad, but the alternative juddering is not very good either. 120Hz seems useless. User's manual is not very helpful describing the fine adjustments. I watched a variety of materials. The greens on a golf course never come out right, motion enhancement made one golf ball showing up twice. The screen motion had a period of smooth, followed by a period of fast forwarding, then juddering effect.
I had this 2012 TV next to my 06' Panasonic DLP & 09' Vizio LCD, and both had better picture and motion processing overall. I was not happy. (Didn't need to put it next to my Panasonic Plasma at that point).
Finally, I started boosting the color setting way up, then tuned down the CMS Saturation way down (-30) to get color separations back. Now it starts to look better. Still could not get the blue color quiet right, however.
Apparently, [Game] mode is the only way to disable motion processing on this unit to get 1080i to work right. You will loose motion smoothing with 24P content in game mode. My Vizio VF550M had no problem getting both 1080i & 24P to work right at the same time, but not this Sharp. I wish Sharp can allow motion processing to be truly disabled in other view modes as well.
The Motion Enhancements settings are confusing. I am not seeing any differences between Off/120 Low/120 High. It is sad to see many turning a 120Hz set to 60Hz.
Once I get more time tuning this TV I will post some of my settings. Hopefully this is a keeper for me.
Looking forward to your settings - especially the ones on GAME mode.
Colors are very natural and realistic in this setting for both BD and cable( I don't game). Try it out guys.

For now, I am using "LCD TV Buying Guide.com" setting for Movie mode, and user "Z-Mad" from the Sharp 640U thread for Game mode. Both looks similar to each other in their perspective mode & acceptable for now with a few tweaks.
With the help of AVSForums calibration bluray, I have settled on a few basic settings that are consistent so far:
AV MODE: [ANY]
Backlight: +12 (from +8 ~ +12 depending on room lighting)
One other item I noticed is the different settings in Film - Advanced settings 0~7 does make a difference to reduce motion blur / introduce artifacts. so far a setting of 3 or 5 seems to be good compromise for me.
If anyone needs/wants to buy a pair of Sharp 3D glasses let me know. I only used them 2-3 times so they are basically brand new.
Only had time to do the Color Temp 2-Point calibration but the improvements were dramatic! You CANNOT buy this TV and watch it without this calibration done, or the color can be way-off, at least for my TV.
I did the calibration with settings below, everything else (color wise) set to default:
AV MODE: [Standard, Game & Movie]
Backlight: (from +0 ~ +12 depending on room lighting)
Contrast: +28~+30 personal preference
To make your gray/white look natural without the default's way too high blue tint, go to Color Temp, set it to Low.
Set both the Lo and Hi Blue 2 Point Calibration to -25 ~ -30, then boost the Red & Green to +5 ~ +15 to your liking.
This will get you somewhat satisfactory without spending $200+ for a calibrator. If I find more time I will do the 10 point calibration, but it probably won't make a noticeable difference for most.
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!
I've found couple Recalibration discs on this site so I'm not sure which one you've referred to, thus hope you don't mind to post the direct link to it or at least post its full name so a newbie like me can search for it. Thank you
