Hi Tomeo,

Thanks for all the feed back on my post. I couldn't locate the "fast boot" you were talking about so maybe you could point me to which menu it's on, though maybe the canadian version of the 925 is slightly different. My firmware version is U1008201 and there's no update yet on the US site or Canadian site yet. What did you think of the settings and what are yours.

Did you perform a clipping calibration?
And does Blue resolve all 6 layers?

Probably going to be picking up a 60 inch 920 soon, looking forward to it

post #36 of 551
Just thought I would let any owners of the 925 model out there that Sharp has released a firmware update on the US and Canadian sites, the new update is U1009221 for those that are interested.

Thanks! looking good.

Do you have all of the advanced settings off? I was wondering specifically about motion enhancement (240? 120?), quad pixel plus, and Digital noise reduction.


Thanks again

Yes, all advanced settings are off.

After a couple of months wrestling with the Sharp 810 (and it's clouding and HDMI audio delay issues) I've convinced Sharp to send me a 920 instead.

Anything (difference wise) I should expect?

Let us know how that new TV is once you have it. I'm more interested in knowing if the clouding issue us better on the 920un series. All I can tell you is that motion blur wise, the 920 series seems to be better than the 810/820 series from what I can see in store. I had both one next to the other when watching sports and it seems more clear, less blurry on the 920un.

I'm guessing you had a 52" before?
post #42 of 551
Any owner can post impression of their TV? The 52" 920un just saw a pretty big price drop around here and is falling into my budget now. I'm wondering if people can comment on their TV's while watching sports, playing games and watching movies.

If people could also comment how even the screen is (clouding was a major issue with the 810/820 series) while watching dark screen/scenes.

thanks,

Just wanted to throw my hat in the ring - orderd a 920 yesterday, with the recent prices it was too hard to ignore

Although I didn't go any bigger, it should be a plesant upgrade from my Hitachi 60VS810!

Hi All,
After 2 months of wrestling with weird flashlighting issues with my purchased C6077UN and its replacement the 60E88UN (which had the issue worse, all documented here) Aquos Advantage kindly upgraded me to a 60LE920UN. So far I can tell you that this set has pleased us in every way.

We got to experience the 77UN quite a bit before it was replaced and so while the thoughts are still fresh in my mind I wanted to highlight a few differences:
> The 920 casing is definitely thinner and totally flush on the front.
> The 920 screen is much more glossy/reflective (I guess people like to be able to see behind themselves when they watch TV these days)
> The 920 menu is much more slick, the 77UN menu is almost exactly the same as my 2005 HP TV (a re-badged Sharp)
> The sound from the speakers of the 920 is the best I have heard in a long time from a TVs built-in speakers. I am so tired of manufacturers ignoring this important feature. Seriously, if I had surround sound would I fire it up to watch the morning news or for my son to watch Sesame Street. Thank you Sharp!
> Guitar Hero detects no lag in the 920 TV at all, my wife plays at expert level and she says this TV is a keeper for this alone. Guitar hero is probably the most demanding game as far as lag goes.
> When the screen on the 920 is all black it looks quite even not so with the 77UN and 88UN. Not even close.
> Of course the 920's built-in Internet and Media Players are a huge welcome feature, but I have hit at least one file that the TV cannot play (and I have to turn off the TV to break the freeze it enters in to). I need to find out what this file is and avoid it.

If anyone wants pictures, let me know, I will try to post, but I have are PS3 games, OTA broadcast, and some animated Blu-rays to demo it.

Do you understand what OWNER means?

It would be interesting to hear from an Owner since the 925 Sharp did not fare well at the FlatPanel Shootout last month - it became the joke of the event pretty much - some of the top AV Professionals in the country performed the shootout and most are also members on this forum. One memorable comment by the Calibrator to Sharp was "Get the RGB Primaries correct before you add the secondary of Yellow."

You should get a life and stop attacking people.

Please do, Looking forward for them (PS3, Blueray and maybe some sports picture from OTA).

I am guessing you had game mode on when playing PS3.

I just noticed dark bars running horizontally on the top, middle, and bottom of screen. Especially noticeable while on a test screen, but still visible during reg. viewing.

Does anyone else have this issue?

Attached are the pics that I have sent up to Sharp for review.

What do you guys think? Problem? or am I being to picky?

Thanks in advance for comments/suggestions.

Picked up my 60" 920 today too after my old Toshiba 52LX177 was deemed unrepairable (I was suprised to be able to get the 60" 920 as a replacement through extended warrenty)

My set seems different though then the calibrations posted, look way off on my set with the yellows clipping, lemons look like they are neon lights and blues look way to neon as well.

In general reds seem lacking on my set, greens decent but a bit low, blues being too high but yellow being extremely out of adjustment. I've been fiddling trying to get the levels right and will post what I dial into once I do but the biggest problem I'm running into is the whites have a distinct yellow and blue tinge to them, I can remove the blue by adjusting the CMS Level for blue, but any suggestions on how to remove the yellow from the whites?

Thanks

Went to BEstbuy at lunch to check both the HX909 and the 920un (they have a great price on the 920 right now).

There was some weird motion artifacts on the hx909 which lead me to believe their set was defective somehow or the cables providing the signal was.

Anyway, I spent most of my time in front of the 920un because it's the one that I have more questions about.

My first observation is that the motion blur seems to be superior to the 810/820un series and watching sports seems to not be problem with that set (one of my concerned). The other one is color saturation. Clearly, when displaying computer animated screens, you notice the color seems to pop more for sure. Although I was watching some movie content and can't say the colors were that off at least not to the point of being noticeable.The TV was right next to a Panasonic VT25 so I could compare to both colors. The 920un beside being obviously brighter, the colors were pretty on part except in one sequence, a wildlife sequence with birds. In the back ground, there was vegetations. On the Plasma, most of the vegitation was brown/greenish when it was out of focus. On the 920un, there was almost no green, only browns but on the other hand, the green on the leaves that were in focus were more green to the point of looking a bit saturated. I wonder just how close to reference level we can get with the 920un.

Black level wise, it's hard to see properly. I was happy to report no clouding what so ever, at least on their demo unit. The black looked good but it was a pretty bright environement. We'd need someone to take picture of a dark scene in a dark room to be sure.

I can say that this TV is getting a bump in my possible list of choices. I need a TV with low input lag for videogames and Sharps TV are great in that regard. The Price also seems good. My only other worry is if I'll survive the big jump in size. I'm going from 32" and was originally planning to make the jump to 46" but 52" (smallest size for the 920un) seems rather a big one (I am about 9 feet away from the TV).

I keep waiting for another aquos model with no panel problems, I have the older 52" aquos that had all the "banding" issues...by the looks of those pics I'm still waiting. Although I did see another one, that was only 120hz 60" that looked pretty good. But it just seems sharp cannot produce a panel that is consistent, some are good and some not....still looking

The problem you mention is not related to Sharp only. Samsung and LG also have their own issues with their panels. No one is in a perfection situation right now regarding those panels. That's part of the panel lotery. It goes being the type of panel and manufacturers, it's downright to being lucky to get a uniform panel.

Sharp isn't any better or any worse than the others. Sharp, just like Samsung, had major clouding issues with their panels. On the Sharp side, the 920un/925un seems to offer better uniformity but we have only saw a handfull of example. Samsung and Sony's tv (now supplied with Samsing panel) are filled with clouding issues left and right.

looks like banding. Can't say I've notice it on the demo unit in store that I saw over lunch today. there were numerous black background. The only shift in the white I could see was on the opposite side when I was trying to notice the view angle.

My replacement arrived yesterday (60" 920 to replace cloudy 820).

Initial thoughts. Absolutely no noticeable edge light leakage. Also no apparent flashlighting. The display does appear to be a hair brighter in the top left corner, but nothing even remotely like what I witnessed on the 820. I had no "problem" with motion blur on the 820, but the 920 is something to behold. These two sets were my first ever above 60Hz and watching the Eagles vs Texans game last night was something else. Crisp and clean for all the action.

Additionally the preset video settings are not nearly as offensive as those on the 820.

Only a couple of downsides. First, for the life of me I couldn't get it to recognize the wifi dongle, but I've got an airport extreme in my cabinet so just plugged in there. Also the picture doesn't seem to pop like the 820, but I'm guessing that's more due to a lack of really locked in calibration settings like over in the 820 thread.

Anyone can comment on watching sports on this tv, more specifically hockey? I happen to walk into another store this weekend and saw the 925un and it may have been the feed but basketball was on the it seems that even with 240hz, sports was a bit more blurry than say sony's and samsung's sets.

any owner and with their feedback would be great.

Just ordered a 920. I will pick it up Fri. Huge hockey fan here, so I will let you know asap.
I was leaning toward the 810/820 until I read about all the blur issues. I hope the 920 justifies the extra cost in this regard.

Just got a new 920U myself. Have used Shadow39's settings (thank you very much).

A few comments (I am not an audio/videophile), maybe someone can comment:

Note: I did not do any break-in.

Picture quality and contrast are great, I love how sharp everything is. High-def broadcasts make you feel like you're there (52" helps that too)

Depending on the type of image, I find the viewing angle to be less than I expected it to be. If the image is too light, I find the screen image a bit whitewashed if you are more than 30 degrees from center.

I find that some older stretched SD content sometimes looks too lifelike...like documentary style. I haven't figured out whether its a setting or multiple settings that are causing this. I saw a reference to 'lifelike' or 'reality' problem somewhere in my reading on Sharp sets but I haven't come across it again or what the fix was.

I haven't noticed any cloudiness or blooming (probably due to oversaturation) that I saw on the set in store, I assume staff don't take the time to calibrate them properly - makes it really hard to look at sets in store (and this was a high-end Tv shop, not a box store).

Any other tips or suggestions for me?
