The New Sharp Line looks so great. I remember how good their 2005 line was and now 4k is coming fast. I know what I want for Christmas.

I would probably take the true 4K unit considering everything else is about equal.

Only if you sat extremely close -- like with a computer monitor. It has smaller pixels.
The programming available is not better, though, and other things may not be as good.
The Sharp technology has been refined over the years, but 4K is still very new and you
may not get good motion with sports, the lag time may be higher because of the pixels,
the brightness, color, contrast may not be as good. 4K just means the picture is very
detailed when you look at it very close-up. From a sitting distance, the 60 inch screen
will not look better than the 70 inch Sharp. Have you seen both sets in action?

It's a tough call! Did you like the LG picture at BestBuy? Did it have good color and motion?
Getting a real 4k set sounds like what you want and those passive 3D glasses are cheaper.
4K plays passive 3D just as well as the HD plays active, so you don't give anything up.
Just the smaller screen -- is the 60 inch LG big enough? Go for it! But I have never seen it...

First of all I want to thank all of you who spent time sharing their calibration setting and helping us newbies get the best picture possible. Without your help and dedication I would have return this TV within a week of getting it.

I have a 70 inch Sharp LC-70TQ15U connected to my HTPC running on an Intel i5-4690S ( integrated graphics HD 4600)+ Win 7 + WMC + Ceton InfiniTV 6 eth + cablecar. The HD 4600 integrated graphics can be set up to output xvYCC and the picture is fantastic, almost no need for calibration. All I adjusted was the blacklight and contrast for room conditions. Blacks are as black as the borders in letterbox content, flesh tones are right on no yellow or red undertones. Overall the xv.color setting has made my viewing experience a very enjoyable one. Not to mention that the HTPC can output downloaded 4K content which is mesmerizing on how detailed and color rich 4K content this screen can reproduce.

Please try this setting and let me know if your results are as positive as mine.

Unhappy LC-70SQ15U not happy

Got my LC-70SQ15U on Monday, have tried changing the video settings to several that have been posted in this forum but still unable to match the video of my old tv which was a Samsung 52" Touch of class edition. The 4k content from youtube looked nice, but when playing video from my DISH NETWORK box the PQ just looks sub par. Watched my first 3-D movie on it last night and was also unimpressed, everything on the screen just had a ghost type of effect. I have another LG 3D tv in my house that uses PASSIVE 3D and I am starting to think I like that technology better (glasses are so much more comfortable). I also notice some LED Backlighting bleeding on all 4 corners and some more on the side of the screen. Will probably take it back in a few days if I am unable to get the picture looking better.

Hi everyone. I just received a new LC-70EQ10U as a warranty replacement for a LC-70650U (white dot issue). So far I'm quite happy with it. I only have one question since this is my first 240Hz set ... why does the screen dim when I choose anything over 120Hz? This instruction manual isn't really that clear.

Thanks.

The best Sharp offers at this point. For the price it is a good buy. Spend a little more, drop 5" and you can get true 4K and a better picture overall. That goes for all sizes actually.

I just received a 70" uq17u on Monday and I love the picture, however, I am having a very annoying problem. Every so often, including 4 times in the last 15 minutes, it switches into 3d mode, then back into 2d mode. It has done this on all inputs with different video sources. Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Febtober

Have you tried USER and DYNAMIC from this link?

You should be able to run 240 without dimming.
Higher rates than the screen refresh rate will cause the backlight
to be switched off during part of the time when the pixels are on.
That's the source of the dimming. The pixels are 240, I think...

[quote=johnfull;27730258]Have you tried USER and DYNAMIC from this link?


Yes I have tried the USER, DYNAMIC and MOVIE settings that everyone has posted, even a few other settings I have seen posted on other sites. Though the PQ is much much better than it was out of the box, it still lacks the "wow" I was hoping for after spending this amount of money on a TV. The LED Backlight bleeding seems a bit more excessive on this TV compared to what others complain of, and after watching a few 3-D movies I feel like I prefer the passive over active. The glasses are much more comfortable, PQ is very similiar (though I did notice more ghosting with the active) and I had a small headache after each movie which I never get with the passive 3-D TV in my other room. So I will be returing this TV in a couple of days. I have not decided if I will try to pick out a different set or just hold off awhile before trying another one.

OK, you gave it a shot! Lots of people prefer the passive 3D for comfort.
You might look at a 4K set in that regard -- the passive runs at HD resolution on those.
As for the 'wow' -- I actually agree with that, too.
The Sharp sets seem to be aiming at photographic realism -- very detailed, but color under control.
I'm particularly disappointed in the blue/green colors -- nothing between cold blue and bright green,
it seems. It would be great to see aquamarine once in a while.
Overall, though, I don't regret the Sharp. The crisp detail and brightness are tops, in my opinion.
Let us know what make and model you end up with and critique its advantages/disadvantages
for us. No set is perfect and there are always tradeoffs of one thing for another, even on pricey sets.

I had to register just to ask this question - I, FOR THE LIFE OF ME, can't find the recommended "Movie" settings. I found the Dynamic and User - but cannot locate the Movie.

Anyone wanna do me a solid and help me out?

Here ya go -- sorry for the clutter over there!

Sharp UQ17U Calibrations

New! MOVIE

Light Sensor (ON)
Contrast (+28)
Brightness (+2)
Color (+4)
Tint (0)
Sharpness (+10)
Resolution (Mode 1)
Motion (Aquo 240)
Clear Picture (OFF)
CMS Hue: All 0 except (Y-5), (B-15)
CMS Saturation: All 0 except (Y-10), (C+15), (B-15)
CMS Value: All 0 except (Y-5)
Color Temperature (HIGH)

10-Point (ON):

1) R-28, G+3, B0
2) R-26, G+8, B+2
3) R-19, G+12, +4
4) R-19, G+13, B+7
5) R-20, G+14, B+9
6) R-18, G+15, B+5
7) R-11, G+18, B+9
8) R-9, G+16, B+7
9) R+14, G+17, B+10
10) All 0

Active Contrast (ADVANCED)
Gamma (0)
Digital Noise (OFF)
Film Mode (ADVANCED +10)
Color Gamut (Expanded)
Light Sensor Range (Minimum -11, Maximum +16)

Just in time for the weekend. MOVIE setting has the smoothest Chroma and allows Expanded Gamut.
I took the HIGH temperature and nudged it into a smooth curve with neutral Monochrome shades.
Getting that shade of grayscale that makes the color pictures look good is my main task. In the
monochrome setting, the grays look ever so slightly blue, as opposed to green or pink or yellow.
The highlights of peak white are slightly 'sunny' so that the overall monochrome picture has a lot
of depth from shadow to brightest white. The color picture takes the slightly blue grayscale and
makes fleshtones look more natural, without so much of the yellow that has been plaguing us.
Give it a whirl if you want an alternative to the LOW temperature setting that Mechman used.
Let me know what you think, and happy weekend!

Question Questions for Johnfull

Thanks Johnfull for your calibration parameters.
I do have questions based on my recent purchase of Sharp's Lc60sq15u HDTV. I wanted the flexability of a 3D tv & 4k compability playback. Best of both worlds for a good price.
Read as much as possible online and manual based on my questions but need clarification.

Questions,
1) Are the settings based for DVD/Bluray playback?
That is, when you set it up, do other components (cable box, game consoles) utilize the same settings. In other words, I see the settings for DVD/Bluray are not the same for cable box setting. If that makes sense to you. Do I need to set it up same way.

2) I know your settings are applicable for the Lc60sq15u but what is the very latest parameters? I noticed today the "Movie" setting instead of the Dynamic setting that you suggested.
Which one based on popularity should I chose?

3) To play back 4k video, can it play back through USB input with thumb drive or through hdmi?

4) Does the tv upscales any video material? That is, going through component input and / or though all hdmi inputs or only through hdmi 1 input?

Just a little perplexed but choices and options.
Thank Johnfull if you can answer or any other willing to take a stab at it.

I re-posted the Movie setting by request. I use Dynamic for everything at the moment,
though extensive dark-room use would have me favoring User for some material.
Of the settings I have made, only the User requires EACH INPUT to be set up -- all others
are global for all inputs. That means User can be tailored, but I haven't seen the need for
different parameters for BluRay, Satellite and internet (YouTube, mostly).
The TV automatically upscales all inputs, but the Resolution Enhance is in addition to that.
As for 4K content -- you either have to have a converter box or formatted thumb drive
content to work properly. I've read that elsewhere, but have not tried much with it.
I know that the YouTube videos that are labeled 4K are actually upscaled HD instead.
They look spectacular. Maybe someone else will chime in on the 4K aspects.
The first page of my calibration link has the very latest Dynamic and User settings.
Let me know what you think -- feel free to tinker with settings, such as color, and motion
enhancements, etc. We all like the feedback to improve our own experiences!
