Wow, how pretentious on telling me how to live and what to buy!?!
First of all, you're not even correct. Since blu-ray content includes the black bars in the 1080p resolution, a movie's picture has less pixels when scaled to 2.4:1. I don't know about 3D blu-ray content, but I know this is true for 2D blu-rays.
I agree, I am only losing the sides of the 2.40:1 content, but the middle could not possibly lose detail or quality unless the scaler inside the Sharp TV sucks, which it doesn't from what I can tell. This is how I like
to watch movies: without bars. I'm not going to change my viewing habbits based on what you say, get over it.
Secondly, I'm asking two questions:
1. can the new Sharp 70LE847u scale 3D blu-ray content, if not what large TV does 55" or greater?
2. my 70LE735u does not seem to scale a 3D blu-ray, is it working properly?
If you don't have the answers, please don't respond as I don't need lifestyle advice from you. If I want to watch my new Sharp TV upside down, that's my prerogative too.

When you blow everything up to fill the screen, you're losing a lot of the quality the 735 (or any modern TV) is capable of. You gain a full screen at the cost of lots of resolution. In the 80's into the 90's many films were filmed at 1.85 spherical and would pretty much fill your screen. But for the last ten years or so more films are made at 2.40x1 widescreen than 1.85 and will have black bars.
