How did you attach them to the back of the set?

if you have a Display that has a mounting then attach to the frame work in a rectangle with tie-wraps
If you use the Display's stand,
then use the 4 attachment holes that a mount would use. get some like sized bolts thread them in & attach the lights to bolts agin in rectangle pattern. that way they will be back way behind the Display & not be seen .
better than using tape or velco as then you don't have to worry about adhesive that might remain if & when the display is sold .
You would not want to drill holes, attach tape ,glue or any like that directly to the display because it might void the warranty. you would think ?

Pulled the trigger with US appliance and my 80" is due to arrive 3/14. I am getting my room ready (New speakers, reciever, seating, etc). I would like to mount my wall bracket before the set shows up. Can anyone tell me the distance between the mounting holes on the set and how far the holes are from the edges of the set?

Thank you-

MIke

Thanks! And agreed about adhesives and drilling. I wouldn't do either

Bought 'em at Canadian Tire - one of the bigger dept. stores in Canada. I am sure you can get them at Walmart, Kmart, JCP etc. but you may have to wait till Christmas season.

My only complaint so far is in playing COD. Mostly when playing two players. When I put the tv into Game Mode, it reduces the quality and makes it REALLY difficult to see people. It was easier to see people on the 61" tv I had previously. Any suggestions or anyone with experience playing video games?

Thanks,

Ryan

Great setup.

I love looking at everyones pictures.

I have a 92 inch screen, but theres something more awe inspiring about an actual tv screen.

I don't recall seeing the build date on the back of the TV, so I cut the sticker off and put it in the owners manual for reference.

Funny, I just finished getting rid of my packing material. 4 large garbage bags of styrofoam chips and a huge 2 foot stack of carboard pieces. Took me a couple of hours to dismantle this ridiculously huge box but it's nice to get rid of it. Had to keep it for 30 days in case I wanted to return it. OK - so it took me 90 days but at least it's done!!
Yes, that is my Wii sensor. Been a gamer most of my life. Really enjoying playing the PS3 and my computer on the Sharp. Reliving Painkiller Trilogy right now. Amazing but for an 8 Yr old game it looks bloody amazing on this set. I think I've had a couple of minor heart attacks since I got the Sharp 80" while playing video games, but.......It's worth it!!

Good old Duct Tape - sliced in half to 1" width. Make sure you don't run the tape over the bulbs.

I'm new to this forum and I have some concerns on 80" sharp. Previous sharp tv's have had serious issues with dead pixels appearing after the tv has been in use for several weeks. I would hate to fork over $4k and then have sharp tell me that dead pixels are normal on LCD tv's. Does anyone have dead pixels on their big boy and I wonder if sharp would cover this as part of the warrantee. I want to pull the trigger but I'm just a little gun shy about potential issues that sharp may say are "normal". Your experiences are appreciated."........Ruby T

From what I understand, if you get a DEAD Pixel (not stuck) they will replace the set, for stuck pixels you have to have a grouping of 3+ or have more than 7 stuck pixels total. I am not 100% on this being totally up to date but it was within the last couple years.

Best of luck,
Jason

I have a 52, 70, and 80 inch Sharps. Never had a dead pixel.
post #1336 of 3272
Ok, how about stuck pixels. I had a 52" sharp with 3 stuck pixels. One on blue and 2 on white. They were on different areas of the screen and to me this was very distracting and luckily I was able to return to Costco. Ultimately I bought a vizio that is still going strong with no issues. Too bad vizio hasn't jumped in the mega LCD market. I'm sure they would be very competitive and drop pricing of these big lcds to the $3k level. Any stuck pixels on the 80? Sharp would give a hard time covering on warrantee. Ruby T

Never had a stuck pixel either. I have had my 52 inch for about 2 years, the 70 for a year, and the 80 (I think) since Oct. I think I can remember just one person on this thread reporting a dead or stuck pixel.

I have the 80le632u and 70le733u. All pixels are good. Also, these sets are made at the new Sakai 10G facility. I would imagine the quality control is as good or better than any other manufacturer.

Yes, as I mentioned earlier, I have 1/2 dead red sub-pixel in the center about 12" from the bottom. Fortunately it's black so it disappears entirely at 6 feet or so from the screen. Not sure everybody is aware that Sharp is the only manufacturer that makes their LCD screens (not all of them though) with half pixels so that when brightness decreases, the upper or lower sub-pixel will turn off. What all this means is that our 80" Sharps without Quattron have about 12 million individually addressable pixels. Pretty astounding, when you think about it, that most sets do indeed have zero bad ones. If anyone is interested I have posted some pix showing how the sub-pixels look close up in an earlier post in this and another thread some years ago.
post #1341 of 3272
Doesn't the 1/2 stuck/dead pixel bother you? Did you contact sharp about the issue? It's great that you can't see it from 6ft away. I guess that makes it all good!

You sure about that on the 80"? I thought that plant was quattron only, and that this 80" set was built on an older line that'd been making 40" panels and converted for 80". No?

No, I'd rather it wasn't there but it is totally invisible from anywhere I would normally sit to watch. If it was stuck on BRIGHT that would be a different story as it would be much more likely to be seen. I had a 24" Dell monitor that had a bright red stuck pixel on the top of the screen. I was aware of it on a daily basis. Of course, I was looking at if from about 2 feet away which is, relatively speaking, much closer than looking at the 80"er from 10.5 feet away.

The 80" is also made at the 10G Sakai facility as indicated by the "X-Gen" statement, according to Sharp: http://www.sharpusa.com/ForHome/Home...C80LE632U.aspx.
post #1345 of 3272
It's a 10G panel even my 2010, 60" 88UM is a 10G X-Gen panel
Sakai plant opened in October 2009

http://www.engadget.com/2009/07/31/s...ally-official/

http://www.engadget.com/2009/11/30/i...-hdtv-from-he/

http://www.shujinbussan.com/userlist...show-4574.html

the key wording is the 10G X-Gen Panel & this is why Sharp has a lock on 70"+ size Display market .
And with that kind of plant they will have the large LCD market share tied up for years
here's the details on my 88UM

http://www.amazon.com/Sharp-AQUOS-LC.../ref=de_a_smtd

compare those specs to the 632-80 & look how they have improved that panel over my 60" 88UM WoW !

Got it guys thanks!

believe it or not...there isn't much to bitch about (i mean talk about) when a display actually does what it is suppose to do without any obvious flaws.
post #1349 of 3272
Since it's slow, I'll ask a question.

I'm a happy owner of a Samsung 63 inch Plasma bought about 4 years ago. I'm not super picky about picture quality but i do consider myself a plasma guy. So why am I here?

My viewing distances is 15 feet and I have always wanted a larger display. The 3700 price is now below what I originally paid for my plasma and I'm so tempted to pull the trigger. I don't care about 3d and all those features but I'm afraid once the 90 comes out, I'll want that.

So, does anyone have any educated guess on how low the 90 could sell for in a year? Could it possibly be under 5k? Is it definitely coming? How many of you are waiting for the 90 and how many aren't going to gamble?

I've read most of the thread and the feeling I get is that this 80 is a special tv and we might regret not getting it now while it's still available. Would just like some more opinions to help me make a decision.

Given the product cycle based on ces it might be easy to say no 90 this year. But the 80 was announced late summer and early fall availability. So if we see it we are at least about 5 months away on any official announcement

I would guess a high premium for quite some time and will guess a 7k street
