Official Sharp 2011 LC-70LE735U Owners Thread - Page 8

post #211 of 1646
FYI - There is a firmware update for the 735 (got the auto-notice yesterday), new version is 300U1107201. I updated without an issue - all of my custom calibration settings were preserved.

Hi All,

I never join forums, but I felt obligated to write about the LC-70LE735U, since I purchased one a few weeks ago, and there is almost no information about it anywhere on the web.

I'm not tech guy or an HDTV expert, so apologies for my lack of details. I'm just a guy who wanted a giant 3D flatscreen without shelling out too $10K.

Anyway, I love this tv. It's huge and it looks great! Every time someone comes over they comment on how nice it is. I have UVerse set up and HDTV looks fantastic. I use the Dynamic setting which makes the lighting and colors look phenominal. I actually turn off the 240 motion (and even 120 Motion) filters, as they make motions look just plain weird. Somethings move too fast and some too slow. Hard to explain.

As for 3D, it took me forever to figure it all out (this is my first 3d tv). I used PS3, my glasses, a 3d hdmi cable, and then spent a day trying to find a 3d bluray. They don't have them at blockbuster... AND movies like Avatar are like $100. Finally I saw UVerse had some free 3D movies (starz on demand as well). Ok... then you have to hit the 3D button on the remote and select horizontal or vertical. Finally 3D worked. At first, I got a severe headache, and the 3D just wasn't working for close up imagery. The next day, it was making me ill again, so I changed to "Movie" instead of "Dynamic" (only within the 3D setting options), and voila, it looked perfect and didn't mess with my eyes at all. We watched Rio and my girlfriend and I loved it with all of the coll flying scenes.

Then came the cool part, I accidentally clicked the 3d button while watching a normal cable movie and I noticed the screen got blurry. I put on my 3d glasses, and was amazed to see that the tv can put normal tv in 3d. I had never even heard of that. Granted, it's not nearly as nice as 3d-specific movies, but it's a damn cool feature.

Anyway TV is awesome, and I absolutely love it. I suggest it to everyone. Fingers crossed that CNET agrees with me later so I don't have to feel buyer's remorse lol.

------Quad Pixel Plus,------AquoMotion 240,-------3d,-----Power Consumption

732---------y--------------------n--------------------n---------------97.6W
733---------n--------------------y--------------------n----------------247W
734---------y--------------------y--------------------n----------------247W
735---------y--------------------y--------------------y----------------247W

Is this chart right?

Non of them are real 240

All are 4ms Response Time

Q1.Anyone see difference Quad Pixel Plus makes?
it is important because 734 sale ends today at frys and I already missed 733(no Quad Pixel Plus) instant rebate at costco but it is still is cheaper than 734 at fry's and Costco has better warranty if I use my Amex.
Please help! Should I get the one with Quad Pixel Plus? Compaired to 733, 744 is $200 more and 735 $500 more.
Q2. why power Consumption is lower for 732? lack of AquoMotion 240 is the only difference.

I have the 735 and do not see any difference with quad pixel plus on or off. The set is not a true 240 panel. It is a 120 panel that uses a back light strobing effect to simulate 240. 735 does give you 3D which for me was a big deal. I hope it takes off and becomes more popular.

I have a hard time believing the power consumption for that one setting is causing that big of a difference. Those numbers can't be accurate. I bet the 732 uses more power then 97w.

As for Quad Pixel Plus, if you look at most of the other people's calibration settings from the 732 thread, they all have it turned off. Which is what made it easier for me to choose the 733 at Costco.
post #219 of 1646
I got the Wattage numbers from their web site. But it is true that 733 does not have Quad Pixel Plus, which "produces smoother lines" right? I guess this gets rid of jagged edges?

dafish721 I watch alot of ice hockey. Did you test it with sports? The reason I am paranoid about this because I had a sony kdl ex60 700 and up close picture looked if I am watching cartoon. I hope this tv is better. I gave the sony to my college freshman son.
FunkyBoss I am now more comfortable getting 733.
post #221 of 1646
Hi everyone,

quick question about this set: except for 3D and 240hz (fake?) does this set have any other real world improvement over the 732U? I've been trying to find out and keep getting conflicting reports.

Thanks
post #222 of 1646
DrA, the only sports I have watched on this set are football and baseball. They both look great to me. Others have watched ice hockey on either this thread or the 732 thread and some say they notice a DSE (dirty screen effect) with watching ice hockey. I do notice a DSE when there is a large area of light colored or white and the camera is panning side to side (like ice hockey would be). When the camera is not panning I do not notice this. This might be an issue for you with ice hockey. Maybe you could bring a DVD of an ice hockey game into a magnolia and check it out on a 735.

End result is this, buy your 735 and enjoy it. If any of us chooses to buy an elite no matter the price, its our god given right. Your attempt at positioning us as foolish because you have no value in high end items is just silly. To each is own so go carry your torch somewhere else please.

oh and before I forget, while it may not be worth the extra thousands, enjoy the dark four corners on your 735. I have a 732 already and its a draw back of your "base model"

So he does it in this thread as well? Why am I not surprised lol.

This is a good set for size. Your not getting amazing picture. Your getting amazing size. (For lcd) as well all know the cheaper route is dlp or projectors.

I don't have anything like this on mine.. I'd definitely be upset and return it if I did.

This is worse than what I had and Sharp didn't hestitate to replace the set. If your vendor does returns I'd suggest doing so. I had to use warranty replacement through Sharp as my vendor has a no return policy (like most small internet vendors). Sharp's customer service was excellent, by the way.
post #229 of 1646
Maaaaan!!! I was so excited for this....I hate having to return it...but these blotches will forever bother me.
post #230 of 1646
A set that bad should never have left the factory.

If Sharp has any qc people at all, you'd have to guess that there was some damage to the panel while the set was in transit.

Return or exchange via Sharp.

If you do an exchange you will only be without a TV for a few minutes at most while they handle the install.

Ditto! Mine has no clouding. Swap that one for a new one.
post #234 of 1646
All, which internet/network apps do you have available on your LC-70LE735U? I checked the manual and I could not quite understand how the apps worked. Specifically I am looking for Skype, Facebook, Picasa, DLNA/UPNP and NetFlix. Any hints or pointers to other sources of info is much appreciated!

Thank You all!

A very enjoyable post. Glad you got it straightened out!
post #237 of 1646
I don't know if I'm losing my mind, but I get home & fire up the "How To Train Your Dragon" blu-ray, & it seems the clouds are in different spots!

Is this even possible?
post #238 of 1646
Hi Guys. I too have this set. My exchange is inbound tomorrow because after reading you cloud post I noticed I have it too, although not as bad as you. But even worse then that, I don't know what to do, when someone is wearing say, a busy jacket, or stripes on a shirt the picture flickers BAD. I am using the youtube settings and it is really bad on DVD's, less so on BR.... almost like a bad comb filter issue from an old CRT. Do you guys see this? Any way to fix it? This is my first LCD TV BTW.
post #239 of 1646
Is there some kind of "shortage" of these sets? The retailer that rhymes with "beers" is out of stock...I noticed the big yellow BB is too...I dont wanna return mine be without a replacement for very long! (they dont do an even swap out...i hafta return mine and purchase a new one separately)

I want to explain these attacks:
To do so a bit of history with a competing dealer. They essentially got run out of AVS then stated their own forum (to also use as marketing vehicle). Trouble consumers were knew better, and only a few die-hards went there. Failing that, they are back hyping the Sharp Elite to create a new religious experience, just as was done for the old Pioneer Elite plasmas. They need a new king (in reality its to charge consumers double+).

The bee in their bonnet is Sharp has an almost identical display to the Elite: its our own 735.
Both displays share the same considerable strengths and weaknesses as the quality and technology built into the LCD panel is the primary indicator of image quality. Since both use the same panel from the same production line, the color, sharpness and contrast are identical.

Both display use full array LED backlighting. The Elite adds local dimming which will ultimately perform better in a dark room. In fact Sharp's own demo are only conducted in a bat cave. Why?
The Elites glossy screen prevents recommendation in a day-lit family room as the reflections will seriously degrade contrast. With a matte screen the 735 has no such issues and is better suited to the vast majority of consumer family rooms.

As several members are reporting, these displays (like all thin LCD panels) can have issues with panel uniformity or Dirty Screen Effect (DSE). So know the stores exchange policy for "dirty" screens before purchasing. To Sharps credit they are quickly to exchanging panels.

For those who don't want to splurge on the 735, Sharp also sells a 60" 633 for considerable less. The colors pop and motion is very clear. Here are the rave reviews from upscale consumers:
