Official Sharp Elite PRO-70X5 and 60X5 Owners Thread - Page 417

post #12481 of 14509
Watched John Carpenter's The Thing last night. Do indeed see the DSE or white vertical bands against white backgrounds during movement that's been mentioned here, in opening scene as helicopter flies past all white background of snow mountains and clouded sky.

Good news is I don't watch hockey and can't see in Star Wars snow scenes anywhere, such as on planet Hoth or cloud city!

No denying it's a flaw (so far the only on my unit). But still happy to have the Elite over second choice of the VT or it's supposed improved successor coming out in April.

watching super bowl. does anyone else have a thin (1/4" or less) vertical green strip on the extreme right of the screen? mine is a 60" and has been professionally calibrated. first time i have seen this issue, not happening on other channels.

My Vizio 60" also has the same thing only on CBS.

YES !!
Very annoying
I have changed my View Mode from Dot by Dot to Stretch to get rid of it
It must be from CBS

Use your "View Mode" button and select "Stretch"
That will get rid of it, but you will loose some of the picture on all 4 sides.

Don't forget to change it back after the game.
I think it's adding ~5% over scan to the image

I actually am more impressed now than I was a couple of weeks ago. I used N3W8I3's settings, and apart from a pro calibration, I don't think ANY TV is going to look any better and likely worse. I noticed a VERY SLIGHT pink hue in my lower left corner on a 109% white screen which is completely invisible on any content that I would actually watch. At this point I think with sets like ours the risk of getting a replacement far outweighs the potential of getting a "better" set. If you don't see anything wrong on the content you watch, it's best to leave it alone.

i think yours may even be more ideal than mine - although very very slight and i have to look for it, i can occassionaly see a subtle hue of green on some colors in that upper left corner....so, not quite totally accurate to say that i can never se mine under normal viewing.

this is the only reason why im still not quite 100% certain of keeping (only 99.9% sure) - if it truly was invisible during my content viewing, it would be a no brainer to me!

Anything restricted to one source is almost certainly in the source.

Weird, my CBS feed isn't showing that on my 70" Elite. I'm watching on a slight delay and there is a out 1:00 left in the second quarter.

People in the VT50 thread are seeing the same thing.

Halftime is about the only good thing in the game

I'm four week in following Kevin's calibration of my "60. You will be quite happy you had him calibrate your Elite.

The way inventory looks , if nothing more comes in ( it is looking this way ), I think Elites are very close to being sold out nationwide. : (

Well.. If the Elite line will die.. And anyone following this thread that was thinking about getting one. Get one now! Because this will probably be the last set with one of the best PQ and inkiest blacks, full array local dimming LED set to date.

REALLY? So you think this wil be the BEST Local dimming led set EVER made? Im sure there will be others in the future, just not made by sharp.
post #12501 of 14509
Did you actually read his post? He said "ONE OF THE BEST" not the best. He also said "to date" not ever. Of course some other LED COULD be made in the future that is better. The question is, with OLED coming, will it?

I read it. I just laugh, at how people think they have the "best", its always debatable. There is ALWAYS something better around the corner.

I agree, but unfortunately due to really poor QC with what looks like the last batch (Nov), it's going to be extremely difficult finding a good 70" Elite. This is very different from the way it ended with the Kuros. There were no QC issues at the end. frown.gif
post #12504 of 14509
It will be hard to find any 70".............
post #12505 of 14509
I got a 70 inch Nov. build from Best Buy and it looks very good. I did not see any uniformity issues. I am glad I pulled the trigger since BB said these were getting discontinued. BB is also giving good discounts on their floor models as I believe they are out of stock on the new ones.

Superbowl on the Elite was a visual feast, especially when the lights were down, the inky blacks and the pop to the picture was incredible.

When you say your colors are jumping, do you mean the readings are moving significantly when you take continuous readings on the same pattern?

yes, the same grey or other solid color - continuous readings the same pattern, readings value were jumping, while expected to be constant for constant pattern.
Calibrator said it has to be calibrated after 3 weeks - right after I'll not be able to return the TV anymore!
I'll re try tonight with my i1D3.

This set is probably going to be like the Kuro Elites when they Pioneer stop all of their display line. Remember that! Lot of people went out in every store to get there hands on one. Geez, I was one too. Got so excited I got the 141 and the 151. Wifey thought I was crazy. But when it was completely sold out and people was still looking for it. Some would pay high dollar for a set. Especially the 141 biggrin.gif. So I sold my unopened 141 and kept the 151. Dang it! I should have went the other way. Oh well, I still have my Pio Elite which is moved to my room. And I still in awe of it...smile.gif

No. Maybe.

Just out of curiosity, does it look okay in the THX modes?

The readings were done in ISF Day profile.
Yes, all processing were OFF.
Calibrator showed me readings on gray pattern (Laptop) that came from his pattern h/w generator over HDMI, also target arrow was moving, actually jumped while constant pattern and cont readings.

Could his generator be so bad?

I just wasted time.

Sorry to see those, welcome to t he club of Green and Pink blobs.
The Sharp is in denial for this issue - IMHO.

I sent email to to wpuckett@sharpsec.com with my info for this matter.
But, no reply over the week. So, no hope for reply at all.

Did you get anything back from Sharp and who replied to you?

Mike.
