How are the black levels and off-axis viewing? Those are two HUGE selling points for me.
These Sharps have a wider viewing angle that Samsung (one person FOV). The worst are many laptops which vary greatly even for one person.
Finally I saw an 11.6" Acer at Costco (for cheap) with excellent color (the tablets are giving them competition).
Your other question is extremely important as it touches upon how satisfied we are with motion (resolution, noise, blurring and film grain).
Plasma and DLP dither (adds noise increasing for darker scenes), whereas LCD blur motion.
What I've learned about myself is I'm extremely sensitive and LCD motion blurring. More so than dither noise being added.
What the Sharp bring to the table is no blurring and no dither noise or even compression artifacts. But only in the 240Hz blanking mode. Some members here say its not completely real. For my eye, brain optical system, it is absolutely necessary. For example I do not not enjoy viewing the 120Hz 732 (or the 735 when set to 120Hz).
To test your own sensitivity to motion blur I recommend buying two Blu-ray and testing the Sharp 735 when the Store is not busy: 3D Aquarium (filmed with RED One camera's) and Disney Tangled 3D. The Aquarium fish dart around at different speeds and is an excellent blur indicator.
The Tangled has many eye-popping bright and dark scenes. However the fastest motion is a bit jumpy on the Sharp in 3D.
The menu scene of Alice and Wonderland deserves special mention as the 3D drawn images define a new type of art.
As the industry moves away shooting in film, its grain effect becomes rather meaningless. LCD motion blur is far more serious issue.
This is a major reason why plasma fans like the Sharp, as the strobing effect is simulates (even better?) to plasma motion without the added dither/pwm noise.
