Official Sharp 2011 LC-70LE732U Owner's Thread [NO PRICE TALK] - Page 3

post #61 of 3822
The owners manual is now available on the Sharp website. The weight with stand is listed as something like 99.6 lb!

As far as I recall - 735 and 935 are 3D TVs, and 935 is the only Sharp this year with full array local dimming. Also, I think 735 and 935 are 240Hz, and 732 is 120Hz
post #63 of 3822
I was chatting online with a Sharp rep today and they said the LC-70LE735U will be coming out in Aug or September and is the 3D version of the LC-70LE732U. They said they have no information on the LC-70LE935U

They said the LC-70LE732U should retail for $3299 and the LC-70LE735U should retail for $4499

...just the messenger for what it's worth.

Thanks Vlad. I don't need 3D but 240 hz and local dimming would be nice.

1. What was the black FL (or mll) that you measured for the contrast ratio?

2. Please give us an indication of the Sharps motion resolution capability vs. that of the Panny plasmas you have calibrated recently.

Thanks

.0184 fL.

After calibration motion resolution was full, with single pixel wide lines visible in 1920x1080 moving patterns.

835 Around June, 935 Around August

Wow, $1200 difference - just for 3D?? Then Sony 65HX929 starts to look interesting again....

Well let me know the outcome. I assume you would like to sell me another monster Sharp ;-)

All this confusing information about 935 - so is it actually coming out around August? What about 735? Does the $4499 MSRP sound accurate for 735? Too many choices from Sharp this year
post #70 of 3822
Strange new development -

PCSuperstore I believe was the first one to post a price on the 732 and that price ended up perfectly accurate. They were also the only ones last month to post a price for the 735 ($3600). Well now the price on the same page has gone up to $4500 and the top of the page says 835 even though the manufacturer part # still says 735.

Have never seen references to 735.

733 adds 240Hz Aquamotion to 732 model
935 adds local dimming and 3D


The 732 and 935 are covered at about 4:50

Are you hearing anything regarding the price difference for the 835 and 935?

50% price bump over 732 just for 3D and 240hz seems high. If the 735/835 are $4500, how much for the 935?

Thanks. I'll be waiting to see how the 733 and 935 look.

Here's an article I found about 735 a while ago - supposedly it's edge-lit with local dimming and 3D. But I don't trust their info as they claimed 732 to be edge-lit as well, which was not the case

Chad: Thanks. The motion resolution is as good as a person could ask for. However the FL is disappointing. Home Theater mag did a review on a LC 60e77un last year that resulted in .01 FL and that model supposedly also used the full array w/o local dimming tech for backlighting.

What light output did they shoot for? This was with me targeting 35 fL. This is all determined by how the backlight is set.

Thanks for the quick response. Per the HTM review (which I just revisited) the white output was set to 29.6 which they said was a reduction from max and was within THX guidelines. The test was in a "darkened room". The full on/ full off contrast was measured as 2960:1.Hope this helps.
post #78 of 3822
That's full on/off, and I was measuring the ANSI checkerboard. I didn't measure full on/off. Even with the energy saver turned off, I think it dimmed a little with no pic content.
post #79 of 3822
Chad how was the bluriness.

I don't need 3D but i watch sports, worried that 120hz will leave lots of blurring. Do you think the 240hz trumotion would make a huge difference?

The blurriness was caused mainly by noise reduction. After turning that off and experimenting with a few other selections, I felt that motion was crisp and correct.
I doubt the 240Hz would make much difference, mainly because I didn't see any issues. But I admit I did not test sports. Some of the selections I played had fast motion, though.

post #83 of 3822
Chad thanks for your expert opinion in reviewing the 732. Could it be possible for you to post some basic calibration numbers to improve the PQ while waiting for a professional calibration.

Just adds 240 MHZ is what I was told.

There is quite a bit of glare..

I tweaked the settings a little bit... Not satisfied yet..

How do you like it so far? Can you take a photo further out in your room so we can get a feel of how large the screen is relative to it's surroundings?

Wait are u saying the 735/835 are the same TV??

732 (MSRP $3300) -- 120mhz, no local dimming, no 3D
735 (MSRP $4500) -- 240mhz, no local dimming, 3D??
835 ???
935 (about $5000) -- 240mhz, local dimming, 3D

Chris,

When is the end of the " 7 Day Sale " on this 70"-er? Thought I was dead set on a 55D8000, but now I'm leaning hard this way. I'm in Kansas so don't know the chance of getting a calibrated set delivered out this way, or if that is too far off the norm. PM if you'd like.

Cheers

Adds 240 MHZ and probably a few more differences, yes. Same panel, probably. We will have to wait and see what "exact" extras it has.
post #90 of 3822
I picked up my set early this afternoon, and only had about an hour of viewing time before I had to go to work. I have only realy had the chance to channel surf via Directv. I won't get a real chance to play with my new toy until Tues, at the earliest. But so far I'm like what I see.

Word of warning to anyone thinking they just want to run down to the store and pick one up. BRING HELP !!! This is one BIG TV ! At about 100lbs the weight is not so bad, just the sheer size of the beast makes makes it imposible to safely handle on your own.
