Only had this since yesterday, but I can definetly agree to all the postive reviews on this set.
welcome to the club, if you haven't already, check out any of these blurays if you have them... The dark knight, the avengers, skyfall, avatar, Game of thrones season 1/2.... These are just some of the fantastic movies that show off this set!

+100

And I will add:
Men in Black 3 3D (or 2D)
Hugo 3D (or 2D)
Madagascar 3 (Animated but has some unreal PQ and colors.)
Kung Fu Panda (Animated but has some unreal PQ and colors.)

Just to name a few more.

And if you want an even sharper, cleaner PQ, buy a Darbee and set it on HD 55%

Enjoy your Elite.

The old Elites use the same codes as the new ones so I'm not surprised a pioneer remote could control a 70X5FD.

I have a Elite 151. And the remote does work on the Elite 70 or 60. Matter of fact I use the 151 data base on the Harmony to control the macro commands on my 70. And it works like a charm.

Hey obx... For 2D anime.. You gotta watch Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete in blu ray. I thought watching this movie on my Kuro Elite was nice. Watch this movie again on the 70 this time. All I can say is WoW. The surrounds on this movie is fantastic too..

Local BB has a floor model available for $5k. Wondering if I should take the plunge?

Newbie here and don't know what to look for regarding this set. Any suggestions?

Yes you should. No other set of this quality is as big. IR is not an issue on the Elites and they can get as bright as you need. Make sure the store has the manual, factory remote (which will have "Elite" on the bottom) and both 3D glasses.

Get one while you can. Worst case scenario you don't like it and have to return it. If you get another set and don't like it there is a chance all the Elites will be gone by the time you "figure it out." Make sure to sign up for Reward Zone at purchase. It's worth a lot of points which equates to some pretty nice gift cards.

Does anyone know if the wifi in this TV can support 1080p?

I’m trying to use the Netflix Super HD streaming.

I'm currently moving stuff around with my ht system, and don't have access to internet right now, or I'd.test it. But I can tell you that if you see "super hd" next to the movie or show, then it should work depending on your internet speed.
post #12674 of 14509
I wonder if these will end up demanding the same premium as the original Pioneer sets did after they got discontinued...

Mine was a floor model also, that is also the exact starting price the guy wanted for it. Took about a good hour, but I was able to talk them down another $1200.

Good Luck.

$3800 for a 70" Elite? Wow... this guy at BB was pretty adamant about $5000 being the final price.

Quick question. On my tv blue is too high. When running the 10 point grayscale I'm running out of control room. I have all 10 point blue settings set the their lowest setting, yet blue is still too high. Within the service menu on screen 7 (lines 1-7) there's something called R_A gain, B_A gain, R_A gain, and the three RGB offsets. Question I have, if I lower B_A gain will that correct my current high blue issue? If no, what service menu setting should I look for? Thx

If you start from too high a temperature, there will be too much blue in the white to remove in this fashion.
The LEDs are far too blue to try to get the LCDs to compensate this way.
Start with a lower temperature setting, like Mid Low, which is reddish,
and remove red and add green instead to get a 'sunny' highlight.
My own settings are for a different model, but the strategy is the same.
Look for red and green clipping and back off on those in the CMS values while you're at it...

I will get that one next time I order movies.
I usually get 5-6 at one time and will add this to my list of "must have"

They were the same way, like I said it took a good hour, I think it also depends on who you get to deal with, some Managers are easier, some not.

Also,this BB, is located in Paramus NJ, in the fashion center, if anybody is close, they still had two 60 Elites on the wall, no more 70's.

Yea let me know what you think of this anime.. Even now..After watching this movie again.. Makes me think our own anime like Pixar or Disney is far behind from Japan's anime..

Try THX mode and color temperature Low. You should NOT need to go into the service menu to get a good grayscale with THX and Low. Everyone, including myself, that has done a DYI calibration uses THX and Low. The hi/lo gains should provide you with plenty of headroom for adjustment.

FYI, I've seen this before, where even with the temp setting at 'Low' with all blue gains and biases set to the lowest points, the temperature still cannot get to 6504k. This will happen if the system board is replaced and the factory calibrated settings are not restored to the new board.

Did you happen to purchase a second hand unit? Or had the system board replaced because of IR issues?
post #12684 of 14509
I just bought a 70'' floor model for $4100 from my local best buy. It will be delivered Tuesday. It's an older build (serial #108811824) with a lot of hours, but I'm hoping any screen issues are minor compared to some of the Nov sets. I have 60 days to like or return it, although for the price I paid I really hope it's a keeper.

Actually my DIYs are in ISF and Low - I love using ControlCAL, so much easier and you get to save & restore settings readily. Also ISF has a lot better granularity, e.g. the gamma setting has 41 intervals instead of the 5 that THX has. But you do need the software to handle it.

Congrats. That serial # is close to mine, yours is also a Aug 2011 build, like mine. I have not found any issues so far, PQ is top notch.

I'm using THX. When selecting 10 point grayscale I don't have a color temp option. The only time I see a color temp option is when selecting 2 point grayscale. 10 point does not have a color temp option. Am I missing something?
post #12688 of 14509
so, im on my 4th set (had issues with the previous 3, including the worst offender which actually was a serial 108xxxx - go figure!) but am curious about one thing that is popping up.

i am trying to use my Disney Wow disc to do some rudimentary settings until i get a full calibration done.

when doing the advanced contrast test, on all the other sets the final setting would be somewhere around 25-30. on this particular set, i can go all the way to 39 before the Ideal Star disappears - should this raise any alarm bells that i have almost exhausted the useable adjustment range of 40? again, only reason it seems weird is none of the other other sets had to go that high before the Ideal Star disappeared.

this is in THX mode, Low temp setting if that matters.

thanks!

I had IR problems and had my board replaced. Blue is now off the chart. I am getting a new system board from Sharp.

Did you happen to purchase a second hand unit? Or had the system board replaced because of IR issues?

I do most of my calibration in a Lumagen Radiance but to get white temp closer to 6500K I used the sets hi/lo adjustments. Then used the Radiance's 21 point gamma/grayscale not the set's 10 point. Perhaps, I misunderstood your question, but with the set in THX and color set to low the hi/lo changes got close to 6500 and blue was not an issue.
