Official Sharp 2011 LC-70LE732U Owner's Thread [NO PRICE TALK] - Page 8

post #211 of 3822
A few days ago DeezMFNutz posted his setting after partially calibrating his new TV. Has anyone had ISF calibration done or even self calibrated with Digital Video Essentials and can tell us the results as well as what all your settings are now that you are fully calibrated?

Has anyone changed their gamma setting?
post #213 of 3822
Ok cool, let me know what changes you made. I can't quite figure number I like better on my gamma. Or if it's even right.

There is one at my local Fry's and I got a look at it for about 15 minutes tonight. It was being fed a pretty bad HDTV signal but they said they would hook up a blue ray player tomorrow for me. I will go back.

The blacks and color looked very good though. I am not certain how it was adjusted. More later.

How can I figure out how bright is this TV is compared to a Panasonic plasma?

Honeymoon period is still in full force here. I'm luvin this set so far!! But if I see something weird, I think I should pass it on. It could be something as simple as the firmware version I'm running on my Directv receiver. It could be just some whacky anomaly.

In no way at all should it be taken that I have gone into crisis mode here.

Turning the motion down to 120 low helped a great deal. Turning it off was even better.

Isn't that what Chad suggested when he calibrated the set for his review?

Yep ! He did didn't he. I hadn't seen the issue before, so I guess it slipped my mind.

Looking at cwmartin set up in those pics which is sweet btw but I just can't believe that 70" nowadays looks kinda small and not that big you know after already with the Mits DLP's 73 & 82".

3K for 70" LED is very sweet for sure but I think we're looking towards 80"+ now. I still can't believe I pd $3300 for sony GWIII LCD 50" back in 04. So those of you who got the sharp LED 70" for 3k consider yourself not too shabby.

Well, I guess everything is relative. Back around 1980 I paid $2000 for a Sony KP-5020. At the time they were going for about 5K. I knew that I was getting a steal back then and jumped all over it. Now, if you take what that 2k bought back then compared to what it buys today, I'm thinking I got another steal at 3K.

BTW. That Sony was still working perfectly when I sold it 3 years ago.

Are the photos you posted of the 60" 831 you say you own in the 60"832 thread or are they of a 70" 732? The 831 uses edge lit technology which appears to be more prone to flash lighting and clouding than the full array used by the 732. In any case, you need to clearly specify which model is being represented as having the problem especially when you say you may return it. Readers of this thread could easily be mislead concerning potential problems with the 732.

The 831 is edge lit; a different technology Than the 732. The 70" 732 is full array. This is why the 732 has its own thread. I am captain obvious.

Last night I put on Dark Knight and watched it in a darkened room. So long as I had the brightness level no higher than +1 which is plenty for a dark room I saw no evidence of light leakage in the letterboxes at all. Completely black.

As far as I am concerned that is good enough. If you are looking at the set with no input or with the brightness cranked up in a dark room you will see some light leakage. Otherwise, it is as Chad stated in his review - good enough. The observable leakage does not affect viewing of program material.

The other things I've noticed - no motion artifacts. Some DSE which can be seen in rapid panning of light backgrounds. A small bit of light fall off in the extreme corners.

All of this is as with Chad's review. Basically I am in 100% in agreement with his assessment. If you want to know what this TV does read his review.

One other thing I noticed is that there is one thing in the manual that aren't reflected in the menus. The one I've found so far are settings for controlling the TV via IP networking.

You should go back and either delete your posts or make it clear which TV you are talking about. Deleting is better IMO.
post #230 of 3822
Chad,

I am ready to pull the trigger on this but the viewing angle worries me. Can you be more specific abouth the "Couple of Feer".? Is that from the center? From the edge of the tv?

I plan to mount this not to high but still probably a 10-15 degree angle if flat on the wall.

If you guys feel it will help i will delete them. Thats gonna take some time lol.

Gaming lag?

OK, I take that back. I found the settings for IP control.

This looks like a sweet TV; I used to have a 60" Panasonic rear projection lcd, but we had to get rid of it almost 3 years ago when we started remodeling our house. For about a year and a half I had to live with a 32" lcd 8-/, and for the last year or so the biggest tv in the house has been a 47" lcd. I'm *finally* almost ready to finish putting together the new media room we built during the remodel and was hoping to get at least a 65", this 70" sounds even better .

From reading the manual, it looks like it supports 1-to-1 mapping for 1080p inputs with no annoying overscan hiding the edges, which is good; as well as separate calibration profiles for each input, also good.

The manual discusses using ARC on the HDMI 1 input to feed audio to an attached receiver, but it's not really clear on whether it will proxy the hdmi audio from a blueray player or htpc. Ideally, I'd like to attach things directly to the tv so each input device can have its own calibration settings (as opposed to hooking them all up through the receiver and then to the tv on the same input), but I also want the receiver to decode the surround tracks. Some TV's will only negotiate the audio track they can deal with and then feed that to an attached receiver, rather than negotiating one that the receiver can deal with.

So, for someone with tv in hand, if you attach an hdmi ARC compatible receiver to the hdmi1 input on the tv, and then a blueray player to hdmi2, does the receiver get the high quality surround track when playing a disc or does the tv feed it just the stereo track?

Thanks...

At the somewhat close distance I was at (guessing about 9 feet), it is a couple of feet from center. In other words, I could see slight degradation when I moved my head to the left or right edge of the pic. But that isn't just a Sharp thing- most Sammys and Sonys are just as bad.
I have had other customers who have mounted their LCDs at eye level when standing up, on a non tilting mount... Things washed out as soon as I sat down in the main viewing chair. Am I being picky? Sure, I'm picky. But it was easily noticeable to a discerning viewer.

How did I not hear about this beast of a TV? For the price this thing seems too good to be true.

A few quick questions.

1. Any gaming lag reports?

2. Does this set have LED Motion Plus (backlight scanning for better motion)

3. What zoom levels does this set support (can it zoom a letterbox movie without distorting the image while eliminating the black bars?)

4. What stores currently carry it and what stores are expected to carry it?

(reading the whole topic now so I may answer a few of these myself)

After getting a 40d550 my opinion of LCD has improved (several of my complaints from the 2008 A750 model are gone, but others remain) so I am now open to an LCD tech and this monster is now on the top of my list of potential HDTVs, right above Samsung's 64d7000 plasma.

Thanks Chad

As much as I would like the 70" screen I think the viewing angle with be an issue with me. I have an old Sony GWII and that was was bothered me about that. I could go a few feet farther than the edge but never the less.

I have all plasmas with the exception of the Sony and I think i will just wait for the Panasonic 65" ST30 given the view distance and that this will be in a basement which has a few windows but is not a bright room by flat screen standards

Thanks Again

Is the GWII a DLP ?

My set stands about 5' 11" from the floor to the top of the bezel while sitting on an old dresser. I sit roughly 10 feet from it at about a 30 to 40 degree angle left of center. I'm also about 5' 11" tall so I'm looking at the TV dead on while standing, and sitting I come in at pretty much dead center screen. I see no loss in PQ sitting or standing. As I walk around the room at more exterme angles, both closer and further away I don't see any loss either.

I don't want to even try and talk for Chad. But what I think he's been trying to tell us is that when he looks at a set it's on a different level than most of us mere mortals. He does this for a living and sees much more of a variety of TVs in real life viewing conditions.

If anyone is reading Chad's words as being negative; Best advice I can give. Go see the set for yourself if you can. I have owned both front projection SD (Sony 50in) and rear projection HD (Pansonic 53in ) Veiwing angles on the 70in Sharp are worlds apart from that old tech. Even today's DLPs don't compare.

I replaced a 60" Sony GWIII (LCD RPTV) with this set. I think the viewing angle performance of the Sharp is comparable to a tad better. It isn't an issue for me because of the layout of my room, but if you have a wide room it could be. If I had your requirements I'd be sure to see it before buying.

One thing to note is that the power consumption of this set is only 230W max. To me that is great for a set of this size and way better than any plasma.
