Does that model have a OPC (optical picture control) or Light Sensor setting?
You should never need the backlight cranked up that high on a dark image.
Set it up to get the best bright and the best dark images and let it do the rest.
That's the first thing to do...

It is fairly common for larger LCD sets to have some uniformity issues. But, yours looks excessive to me. Sharps factory warranty probably has some in-house options, You'd have to call to find out.

For the record, I recently returned a 660U(newer version of your set in 70") due to poor performance and some bad clouding/backlighting issues. Went with another brand.

Using the OPC reduces the problem...

You can tinker with the Minimum and the Maximum range, along with the Contrast control
to get the look you want in all lighting situations. Sharp should make the OPC always on by default...

Just an update. Now its very dark in the room. OPC did help a bit but still noticeable. I set the opc setting to adjust to the minimum as well. Only way the cloud effect goes away if i turn the brightness all the way up. Ill try to get in touch with Sharp again see if a tek can check this out. Will let you know.

Ok, it's been 3 weeks ... I am liking the TV,. Set it to GAME and all is good with some minor adjustments.

I do however sometimes enjoy the Soap Opera effect for TV shows, concerts and discovery programs ...BUT ... as I switch to USER with my own settings, I still can't get the perfect color. Seems like I have too much blue. So, overall picture is a bit more saturated and colorful than GAME mode that I use for movie watching, but it's that crazy blue tone that I need to town down.

anyone have good settings they use for any preset other than GAME?

thank you

[QUOTE=wadalove;29748665]That's a great deal, and the new 660U is a very good looking TV. And you also have another year of factory warranty with the new 660U. Let us know how it goes. There are a number of people who are looking to see how it performs.


So i received it today and picture quality looks great. So far no white dots or any noticeable clouding. However, there is no GAME mode on this model and on Movie Mode there is no 10 point Greyscale. However, there does not appear to be any soap opera effect at all on Movie Mode or any other mode as there was on the 650u. It appears turning off the motion enhancement and film mode settings works better here than on 650u.

Also there are only 3 HDMI inputs compared to 4 on my 650u. Sucks but at least i don't have ugly white dots.

Also, Sharp told me that even with the replacement TV, my warranty expires at the same time as the old one. In other words, i have two weeks left. When i asked why? They said they don't extend warranties on replacement sets. Is this true?

I am looking at this tv and there doesn't seem to be any reviews as of yet. So it sounds as though the picture looks better but only 3 HDMI ports? That is disappointing. Is the 4th port HDMI 2( both HDMI and MHDL compatible)?

Any other words of praise or frustration?

Thanks!

Chris

There's only a handful of owners at the moment. I'm satisfied with the TV's performance especially for about $500 to a grand less from the bigger competitors, but technically I'm still evaluating it until January 15th.

I may need to add this to the OP, but when configuring your mobile app to control the TV, the instructions on the app state to do the setup during 'Initial Setup' of the TV. If you do this after initial setup, you must power the TV off and remove the power from the TV completely (turn off power strip or unplug), then plug and turn it back on for the mobile app to control the TV.

There's also a bit of clouding present during a completely black screen. I did use the gentle massage technique to get out of most of the clouding...

I use all 4 HDMI ports just fine (Port 1: 4K AV Receiver with ARC Enabled to output audio from all of the rest of the HDMI ports and to automatically select surround sound mode based on content playback, Port 2: Apple TV, Port 3: 4K PC Gaming, Port 4: Chrome Cast). I praise the Picture quality and THX certification AV mode, and I also praise gaming at 4K resolution (the picture looks phenomenal like you are totally immersed in the game - a comment from a coworker who tried my 4K gaming setup out).

The only gripe I have is not about the TV, but about the performance of 4K video cards at the moment as they aren't powerful enough to play settings maxed out smoothly (disabling certain video settings helps with performance and 4K gaming is still extremely enjoyable).

who needs 4 hdmi inputs on the tv? if you have that much gear you should probably have an AVR with like 11ty bajillion more inputs anyway.

i have the LE660, and I'm going to assume for now that any advice/settings/troubleshooting from the 650 would carry over?

so far i'm happy. i've only watched just a little bit on it, but i didn't notice any uniformity issues when viewing a blank screen and off angle. waiting for my monoprice order to show up so i can wall mount, then put the center channel on top of the TV stand, then run audyssey, etc etc.

this thing seemed like a pretty good deal at $800 for a 60'' and was reviewed favorably over on cnet.
