He said that everything in the TV is plastic, unlike LCDs with glass-covered panels.

We live only about 3 miles from Costco and the road is paved and pretty smooth. I think the box would fit into the back of a friend's GMC Safari either lying flat or almost certainly upright, but at an angle.

Do you think what the sales person said was true?

When I picked mine up at Costco on Xmas eve I rented a Uhaul cargo van. It cost a total of $50 including mileage. We had to tilt it to get it into the van but once inside I was able to tie it upright to one side. Getting it off the van was a lot easier. It just fit through the back door in a straight up position. Here's a picture of it "under the tree" BTW, That's a 9' tree!

I have it connected to a Bell 9242 PVR, PS3, Boxee Box, Toshiba HD-DVD via a Pioneer VSX 9120TXH-K receiver. I have tried some of the settings posted here but I will eventually get around to doing my own calibration using my DVE bluray disc.
Here is a comparison of the 2 sets. The 80" just fits perfectly!

Anyone have a LC-80LE633U? Can you please post your settings? My 65" DLP Mitsubishi went out finally after 4 years and loved it. I wanted to get another DLP tv, but heard they are discontinued. Anyways, I got the 80le633u and I'm not really pleased with it. It was super expensive and was hoping for pure joy like my old tv. I've tried a few settings posted on here and nothing makes the picture as clear as it was on my DLP. Some commercials and some tv shows in hd look awesome. Regular shows look terrible and blurry. Why? I don't remember it being blurry on the DLP. Anyways, I appreciate any help. Thanks!

I use suzooks settings on my 633 and they look amazing. Bluray is great. HD tv is very good and SD source looks like garbage. SD source looked horrible on my 46 inch so of course worse on 80 inch. Thankfully I do not watch anything on standard def anymore.

Are you sure you used his exactly and didn't tweak it? I tried it, but it's too dark. Movies looked good, I also tried watching the Simpsons and their yellow looked bad. Besides that, his settings weren't bad. I just want something with a little more pop snd less pixilation around figures.

You said that HD looks awesome but "regular" shows look terrible. Are regular shows SD?
I watch all my TV's in the house in HD because of course SD will look terrible in comparison.
post #2857 of 3272
SD - standard definition? Well sometimes its out of my control if the show is in HD or not. I've watched old episode's of Family Guy and it's all pixilated and fuzzy around the characters. This is normal correct? I just didn't remember the picture looking so bad on my DLP.
post #2858 of 3272
does anybody know if this set handles 24p properly?
post #2859 of 3272
How is the audio on this set? Is it tolerable without additional audio equipment? (I know that's a tough, subjective question, but give it a shot anyway.)

Keep in mind it is 51 percent bigger then your old DLP.

Now, that IS weird.

I still have a slight red tint with either the default, his settings, or my custom settings. I had to knock it down to -10 on the CMS Saturation, and -5 on color.

This is with game, movie, standard etc...(and processing turned off).

One thing that I have noticed since last November when we bought it, that the DSE (or similar) never has gone away.

Looks like a "sheen" of some sort, faintly yet distinctly clouding the image either from OTA, DTV HD or Blu-Ray.

Dirty Screen Effect.

On my set, it's like a sheen, or sligh fuzzyness(?) over the panel.

Kinda like looking through a slightly "misty" window pane...

I don't know what causes this, nor do I know if I have bad set.

I've been thinking of contacting Sharp, but haven't got there yet. Just don't want to hear "your TV is within specs..."

Hey guys, I had posted on this thread almost an year back, was hoping to buy this LCD with the last yeas tax returns. But cud'nt. But this year for sure i am getting an 80 incher.
So, finally with all your experience with this LCD, do you still recommend this LCD? Or should i be looking at something else if there is something new within the same or nearby price range? Please advice, have been convincing the wife to let me buy this LCD, i wont be able to get another LCD for a few more years after this. Dont want to be stuck with a sour cracker... guys please give your honest opinion, would you recommend this lcd to a new want to be owner?
post #2872 of 3272
Some thing else. Not worth it. I'd recommend a dlp if you can buy one locally, but more than likely you'll probably have to order one. Be careful if you do, mine came in smashed.

with what the prices are on this display now opposed to what they were a year ago, the fact that it's the Best Sharp jumbo display in terms of Zero Issues , the SuZooK setting that across the board seem to make almost everyone very happy with their PQ , This Display is Not a Sour Cracker by any means :0
I love mine , I'm happy for a few years to come this set will be my set until 4K becomes the norm in content .
I'd like to get the 90" Sharp but really this set is in range of 1/3 or lower than the cost of that 90" . I'm keeping the 632 80" it has been a Great Buy for me that I do not regret . smile.gif
post #2875 of 3272
OK, I'm not a Sharp owner but let me give my opinion . If you can't afford the new 4K sets ($17,000-25,000 for the 84" models from LG and Sony), then this would seem the way to go! Enjoy!

Best Buy didn't want to help me. That's why I went to Costco amd got the Sharp.

I'm picky because my 65" DLP had the best quality picture for all around viewing. I'm not getting that with my LC-80LE633U. Maybe the tv is too good and that's why I see pixilation around people.

Not only that, but if you're back 10 feet or so, 1080P is at the maximum resolution of what a normal set of 20-20 eyes can see. Another words, at 10 feet you can't tell the difference in sharpness between 1080P or 4K (3840 x 2160).
At 15 feet 720P, 1080P and 4K all look the same!!
To get the full benefit of 4K resolution, you would have to sit about 5-1/2 feet back from a 84" screen. Unless you have an OLED or Plasma screen, you're gonna start having real problems with contrast falloff, fading colour, and raised black floor level on the far sides of the screen, not to mention that you are severely limited by the number of people who can view the display at the same time.

Thanks for your responses guys, and damaging my tax returns savings. smile.gif
80" sharp here i come.
The 90" looks very tempting, but the cost is almost double as compared to an 80" LCD. The best deal i see on this 80" right now online is from buysquad, are they a reliable source? I know discussing prices are not allowed on the forum, but please do let me know whats the best source for a good deal?
Did anyone of you buy the extended warranty for 5 years for 750 dollars more/less?

Edit: i see a lot of customer complaints on resellersratings for buysquad... any other source guys?
