I just came back from the store - they had a Sony 4k 65X900A (2013 model) beside the 80" UQ. The Sony had amazing natural color and detail. The Sharp seemed overly bright, I'd say due to it being in dynamic mode. Both sets had a demo reel going, one segment had a Bruce Springsteen concert; on the Sharp, his face looked washed out. I wanted to play with the set but the sales guy said he doesn't have the remote.
The Sharp also displayed something weird - on fast moving parts of a scene, the object would become blocky, similar to leaving a trail of broken pixel chunks. On the Sony it was clean. I've seen 2 80" UQs now and both exhibited this anomaly. Is this common for Sharp sets and can it be resolved? I've never seen this before, and I've only owned Pioneer plasma and Sony LCD sets.
