If I don't care about price differences or any sort of internet features, which, out of Sharp's two current 90" models, has the better picture quality?
I've tried to read any reviews I could find, and went through the two product threads here, but I haven't been able to discern if the 745U has a clear picture quality advantage over the 657U, or vice versa. I've seen mentions of them being basically identical, but I've also seen some indications that the 745U is more easily calibrated to an accurate greyscale, gamma, and colour accuracy.
One of my main concerns is the dejudder processing. I cannot stand the "soap opera effect", and I do not want any trace of it. I was made a little gun-shy after models like the LC-80LE844U where, even if you turned off all of the motion processing, frame interpolation, and film dejudder processing, those controls never actually turned all of it off, and the "soap opera effect" remained no matter what. Does the 90" 745U or 657U have this problem?
So, not concerned with price differences or online feature differences. I just want the best 90" model in terms of picture quality, with an accurate, properly calibrated image with as few processing or other picture artifacts as possible. I've seen mentions of "banding" and uneven backlight issues on both models, so there doesn't seem to be a clear advantage for either model in that realm. But I'd gladly take any advice as to whether the 745U or 657U has a better quality control track record, as well.
Thanks so much for any help!
