I'm interested more in PQ, I could get the 90 inch sharp TV if I put in a little extra money on top of the return/exchange. But I'm not sure about the PQ for it. Please tell the reasons on what your opinion is on which TV is better for what I'm looking for. Thanks.
I have a Sharp 857 60 inch and I am very happy with it. I had it shipped and received it with 0 issues out of the box.
The tv did need to be calibrated because the pre sets were either way to bright or to dark, but I used the Disney Wow disc and all came out great.
Pros to the Sharp:
Has a semi matte screen not a gloss one
Has bluetooth 3d glasses which work great
The higher 12,000:1 contrast ratio and superbright are a plus
Looks great with the brushed metal frame.
blacks and whites look really good and uniformed
Smart Central works good
Costs a lot less then the Samsung
Cons to the Sharp:
The Aquamotion 960 is useless. It makes the screen way to dark at least for me even with sports.
The Aquamotion 240 is really just a 120 hz setting with backlight dimming. It does work ok for fast motion and 3d movies but not so much for regular tv.
No matter what motion setting is used if you watch golf (I dont but tested the settings with it) you will get the shadowing from the ball.
Only comes with 2 3d glasses
Hulu Plus app is buggy as heck
Not many built in apps
Samsung has more features if you'll use any of it.
It has a clear motion rate of 1200, but if its anything like the Sharp 960 its useless.
Screen is gloss so the colors can be more vivid and accurate because of it.
I can't speak to much of the Samsung as I don't have one, but from the displays I've seen in several stores I could see either backlight bleed or flash lighting on them which is what turned me off. I dont get any of that on the Sharp. My wife didn't like it because they had the contrast up way to high because of store mode and made her sick. lol
Both are great tv's though and to me cant go wrong with either.
If you have questions about the Sharp feel free to ask.
