Chad
Again, much appreciated. I'm guessing that with your educated eye, a negative would have been noticed and shared. Thank you.

Chris

Got it delivered from Bestbuy on Saturday, but the set is defective. It has a 6 inch wide vertical band of bad pixels. It looks horrific but seems to have gotten better over the past few days (band disappeared now but parts of it will be discolored on occasion). BB is sending out another one tomorrow, I hope I get a good panel this time.

Second set looks great, the delivery guy wasn't happy that he has to haul the defective unit away. I felt bad and tipped him on his way out.

I am experimenting with Suzook's setting (movie) and DaGamePimp's setting (game mode). Bluray looks fantastic, but FIOS is rather crappy because of the compression. I will try some gaming tonight. So far, I am very happy with the set, I will take a few pictures of my setup later, if anyone is interested.

The silence if deafening! 10 days and NOTHING! This is ridiculous. This fabulous set deserves better. I still love mine so I thought I would dig around and find something useful and interesting to report on - And........here it is!
Sharp uses 300 Hz PWM to control backlighting. At anything less than full brightness Sharp strobes the back-lighting at 300 times per second to adjust overall brightness. This method is very common with both CCFL and LED displays. I found out about it here:
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/pulse_width_modulation.htm
This is a great site to go to if you want to learn all about the different types of LCD displays and how the majority of computer monitors fare in their very comprehensive tests.
So, I followed their advice and took some pictures with my Sony A55 at 1/15 sec while scanning rapidly across the screen which was displaying ONE thin white line. 20 of them showed up so easy math tells you that the screen is being strobed 300 times per second. I am not aware of any downside to this but some people may be sensitive to strobed light. I certainly was aware of it with our company DLP projector with its rainbow artifacts.
The first picture is with -3 back-lighting and the 2nd on is with +12 back-lighting.

Great price.
Where in Canada are you and where did you order from?
I bought mine just about a year ago when they listed for 5.5K. I paid 4.5 plus HST which was a good price at the time. They had JUST come out and retailers were all waiting for stock. Took 2 or 3 weeks till mine was delivered. 1 Yr. later and still thrilled!
Been playing with settings off and on - PM me if you would like to compare notes.
Good luck and congratulations.

Hello Guys,
I have been reading your posts on this thread for a few weeks and came to the conclusion that the LC-80LE632U Is the right TV for me. I have always bought the biggest at the right price range, unless it was a problem laden model. My Samsung 72" DLP has just died 2 weeks after installing a new bulb it it. Its a shame, as I loved the TV and the new bulb made it look almost as bright and clear as many LCD's.
Anyway, after all the great recommendations on this forum, I have been shopping for price. Amazon had it for $4100 + change. However they frequently change prices. Amazingly about an hour ago, an Amazon dealer named Closeout Source listed the LC-80LE632U for only $3494.99 including free shipping and NO TAX. Could this be an old TV sitting around unopened for along time? It is advertised as BRAND NEW. They only had two left at the time I saw it so I put it in my cart right away and paid for it. I called Amazon customer service ( I am a long, long time Amazon customer in the best standing they have) and they said they would stand by me if there was any problems with the Closeout Source. They said they have had no problems with that dealer. I plan to call Sharp tomorrow and find out if they are an authorized dealer. I suspect they are not and wonder how that may effect the basic 1 year parts and labor warranty. Do any of you folks have suggestions about an extended warranty? I can purchase a 4 year warranty through Square Trade for approx $380. This seems kind of high, but the company seems to be regarded well. I would appreciate any and all comments. Assuming I go through with the purchase I will be back on here requesting help with optimum settings. Thanks in advance.
Oh..and by the time I called customer service the last one from Closeout Source was gone. At the time of this post ( which is 1/2 hr after I bought the TV) Amazons best price went up to $3999.
post #2452 of 3272
Welcome to the club. Sharp 3 year extended warranty is $219. You can eve split it into three payments. Best warranty out there ;-)
post #2453 of 3272
Im sorry..I put the wrong number in about the price. It was ONLY $3,394.99 Free Delivery, No Tax
post #2454 of 3272
Thanks Suzook. I understand you have the best settings out there. Naturally I am very excited about getting the set and will get back with you as soon as it arrives. I will pay that $219 for the extended warranty. Thanks for the info.

im upset...Just got an email from Closeout Source saying that they canceled my order because Sharp revoked a $800 price discount and they cannot sell the LC-80LE632U at that price. Oh well..I might have to wait until black friday.....Im very disappointed.

It's kind of doubtful that "Black Friday" is going to do you any good. Mostly the sale items are of the cheaper, less desirable items.

this has been the case at the retailer where I work for the last two or three years---a couple of pallets of decontented special BF doorbusters and good discounts on entry level plasmas, with regular stock either unchanged or even slightly higher in price.

I got the free 3 month extended from Sharps website for registering and then I paid $179 for a 3 yr extended.
I am extended 3 yrs and 3 months beyond the 1 yr so it was $179 for a total of 4 yrs and 3 months ....
