Sounds like you should at least let them know about it while it's under warranty.
Try the Dynamic calibration and change the backlight minimum
to something higher -- someone else just reported that same problem.

It is only exactly 60 days old. It has to be a power supply or soemthing as it is just overly dark no matter what I do with any darker scenes. The only other thing that comes to mind is a black level rise issue but I have seen none related to this model (like Panny had but much quicker and more drastic).

I did. Something is wrong so I will have it replaced or repaired. Someone else reporting this makes me wonder.....

Over at the calibration site -- someone just got a new one and was disappointed with the
extreme clouding/flashlighting with the sensor off and too dark with it on.
I went through the troubleshooting and suggested turning up the minimum.
I'll let him know you had a problem, too...

How come there's ZERO discussion of the Sharp LC-70UD27 here?

Will it even show up in this thread? I've auditioned the Q's but to me they were just decent looking budget 1080P panels = affordable HT size PQ but compared to 2160P panels (certainly costing much more) there was no comparison - you can't feed 2160P to these Q's and have then = PQ of a 4K UHD TV. Every review I've seen has stated this.

I'm not anti-Sharp at all because I owned Sharp's when my 32" was $2K, 45" was $3800, and 57" monster was $6500 on a half off sale. Outside of Elite Sharp rarely gets respect on this forum but there are things I miss on my 57" that my Samsung's cannot match. It is good to see a lot of + feedback from Q owners though black levels can never match an OLED but the price to PQ differential is vast as the blacks.

The matte screen had no reflections and it gave a more peering into a window effect than my Ultra Clear Panel. My 57" was a massive beast and had lots of wow factor and made my 60" Samsung feel smaller though the math made no sense - the Sharp felt larger.

One thing I don't miss and hated on the Sharps was OPC but it took ten seconds to turn it off, annoying as hell random light fluctuations.

The new 70UD27 will have a semi matte panel, confirmed to me by SharpUSA - they stated Sharp produces no Glossy Panels. This model will be fully compliant with 4K standards unlike last years and the price has dropped significantly from a year ago.

Though I currently don't own Sharps every one I bought is still operating without a hiccup today with relatives I passed them onto. Zero service calls on any and zero failures. Seriously considering the 70UD27 but zero feedback/reviews makes it tough.

For the price of a Sony 65X950B I can buy the Sharp 70" UHD for the living room and almost budget the LG OLED 55" for another room.

Hopefully someone will get a peek and post thoughts on the 70UD27 soon.

Samsung 65F8000, 60D8000, 40HU6350, Panasonic 50E60 LCD's

Is the UD in the stores yet? I haven't seen it or any reviews of it.
As for OPC, I would say that the latest iteration of it is lightyears (no pun)
ahead of the version of a couple years ago. Light changes are not reactive,
but proactive -- the picture goes through analysis and adjustment on the fly
so subtly that it's barely noticeable and only rarely at that.
I'm interested in the Spectros color on the new sets, but I'm afraid it's just
more of that horrible blue LED with some variation of the yellow phosphor.
The Q+ sets have a better color in red and green than previous Quattrons,
but the blue is exactly the same -- as with every panel on the wall of big box
stores. I'm hoping for a breakthrough UltraViolet LED that will illuminate all
3 (or 4!) colors in phosphor or Quantum Dots. As it is, the blue stands out
like a gangrenous thumb. Otherwise, I love the UQ17U in the 70" size and
would not trade away its contrast, brightness, and motion handling for the
4K, which would be a waste at my viewing distance. Maybe some day...

Hello,
I'm supposed to go to my A/V store this weekend and get my new 70" UQ17U set. I want this set but my salesman is trying to steer me towards the Sony or Samsung. He says it has better motion handling. That is a big deal for me due to how much sports I watch. Is there any truth to that statement?
I'm putting down money on something this weekend.
Thank you

I have a 70" SQ and watch a ton of sports and I love the picture. Just need to dial in the right settings. Everyone who sees my TV with a game on comments on how great it looks. Just my opinion. Hopefully other sports enthusiasts will give some feedback too.

Just be sure the salesman isn't working for the profit motive.
The UQ17U is a great set and the motion handling is very good.
The level of detail is better on the UQ because it upscales to 2K,
which doubles the HD resolution. I can definitely see the difference.
Be sure to calibrate it once you get it -- I have a killer Dynamic
setting you can use...

He seems like a good guy but you never know. The A/V store does not carry the Sharp Line. He said he would have to call his distributor to get one. I'm wondering if I should just go to BB and get it. I have already lined up a calibrator who covers the Tampa area. I will use your settings first before setting up that appointment though. Thank you,

BestBuy might have a slightly different number -- TQ instead of UQ?
I think it's still considered the top of the line in non-4K sets.


One guy who uses my settings likes the USER for sports and DYNAMIC
for everything else, so you can have your pick.
A professional calibrator can set up your MOVIE setting by the book.
I would avoid the THX MOVIE setting, though, because it disables the backlight control.
Several reviewers have mentioned that and it messes up the nice black level in dark scenes.
Regular MOVIE setting would be the one a professional would want to use anyhow.

TQ is the same as the SQ .Exception is It adds a built in subwoofer and a different frame bezel... It is a Best Buy exclusive and IMO not worth the xtra money over the SQ... UQ adds more contrast than both SQ and TQ
