I'm so disappointed honestly. I have been researching for a long time and finally pulled the trigger. Initially I wanted a 70" screen to upgrade my 60" screen just to fill my room better. I have a bright room fun of sunlight (behind the TV though no behind my viewing area). The picture out of the box was in flame mode and the SOA was just unbelievable.

I've scoured the internet for setting and have tried a few of them. They are much better but still leave something to be desired. Either the picture just looks washed out... or the blues are crazy overpowering. Not sure what to do here. I'm really thinking about returning this thing.


These setting seems the best for me

http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/sharp-lcd-tv/sharp-le847u-calibration.html

But i've also tried some found on this site to no avail.

I'm coming from a Pioneer 6070HD. I really really want to like this damn TV too!

Tried to watch 3d last night but since I run my video thru my Marantz (hdmi switching) that wouldn't work. So need to run another HDMI directly to my bluray player.

Anything I should try to make this TV live up to the hype?


thanks!

Jim

As far as pq goes, you need to create your own setting instead of using someone else's. Component tolerances vary from set to set so what works on one set doesn't necessarily work on another set, even the exact same model. Get a disk like the free AVS HD709 or a commercial one like WoW, DVE, etc and create your own adjustments (brightness, contrast, aspect, sharpness, color, etc).

I developed these settings for the Standard Mode of my 845 and am very happy with them:

Get the calibration disc from this site and set the 10-point scale to a pleasing white and go from there.
Using the Color Management System to eliminate red and green clipping and blue push helps a lot.
I find the Standard setting to be the best for day-to-day viewing of a variety of sources in varying light.

Thanks guys! I agree, everyone's components affect the display differently. I use HDMI switching thru my Marantz and i'm sure that is affecting it in some degree.

I finally got some good starting settings though on 'game' mode and i've very happy. I didn't realize it until I went in my basement where i moved my 6070 plasma and it looked really SOFT! smile.gif The sharpness of the LCD is really incredible... i'm almost blinded by the whites, crazy.

thanks again... will get the disk after some additional break-in (do you need to break in a LCD like a plasma?)

No break in needed.

I read something on the forum recently about the LED color settling in after a few hundred hours.
Makes sense that the blue LED/yellow phosphor hybrid might shift a bit, but -- hopefully -- settle in to a stable output...
