There is no way to shut it off, so I'll just live with it.
If the SQ model has the same habit, it would mean it's something else -- like the Active Contrast,
which can be shut off. I have that feature turned on to avoid the occasional washed-out images.
I'm not sure... I haven't noticed any flicker. I used to notice stutter due to frame rate mismatching (I think).

It may be strictly a UQ phenomenon, then. Thanks.

Welcome!

These calibrations, done with the disc from this site, might help to get you started:

Sharp UQ17U Calibrations

Several other folks have settings, too, including several that used the disc plus a gauge.
Mine are done and re-done by eye till I got them the way I like them, especially skin tones.
Let us know how you like the new set!

Anyone tried any 4k sources going into these tvs yet?

Will these TVs be updated to HDMI 2.0 if they are needed to be?

I have a LC-70SQ15U and I'm disappointed to read in the manual that:
-4k input on hdmi 1 only
-ARC output on hdmi 3 only

So we can't use the tv in a sensible manner with a receiver.

I'm looking forward to being able to buy a device that streams Netflix 4k. Does one exist?

Native 4k will look good but upscaled probably will not.

Right now there are no devices to stream Netflix 4k outside of a few tvs: brands such as Samsung, Vizio and Sony. Currently there are only two HDMI 2.0 receivers - Onkyo and Pioneer. I hope that next year will bring players that can stream 4k. Netflix has deals with these TV companies exclusively. I imagine it is to sell 4k tvs since there is almost zero 4k content.
