You're welcome.

* By the way there's a new Game mode CAL in my 632 settings link below for those that use the mode, GAME will not calibrate out totally accurate but it's much closer than my factory presets (best of luck to those that try it).

Jason

Hi Jason..thanks again for the 35 ftL cal..I plugged them in and will try it out in the evening when lights are out. I have a question regarding what setting to use when playing PS3 games. I currently use the GAME mode but using default settings. Do you think when playing games, we need to be as close to accurate as possible? What is your advice on this? Thanks again!

Can anyone tell me the width of the base? All I can find is information for the depth of the TV with and without the base. I'm wondering how wide my TV stand will need to be.

ftL = foot Lambert's, basically how bright the image is (not to be confused with the brightness control). An initial contrast & back-light setting is used to check ftL. You want to keep contrast from clipping or color shifting/pushing and at that point where contrast is set properly you can use the back-light to increase/decrease ftL.

Sure, why would you not want your games to be more accurate, do you not want to view the game as it was intended by the developer?

Try my latest Game mode settings (with Active Contrast enabled), I think you'll enjoy them for gaming as they are more accurate than factory presets yet retain some fun (at least on my 632).

I was just putting the stand together in my office. It is humungous. 21 inches wide by 13 inches deep. I'd suggest looking for a stand that is 18 inches high. That will place the center of the panel at eye level. It's amazing how much space my DLP TV took up in depth. Using the same stand - it's 16 inches deep.

Dimensions
Dimensions (wxhxd) (inches) 63-1/2 x 38-25/64 x 3-1/2
Dimensions with Stand (wxhxd) (inches) 63-1/2 x 39-45/64 x 13-1/8

I didn't want to answer about the base for the 70" since I own the 60" but it's the same base on the 60", no wonder I felt it was a bit too deep for the 60" (I wonder if the 80" is using the same one).

myoda, cool room it sort of has a retro vibe to it.

Hey guys, newbie question here... but do you get any real loss in PQ if you set up your TV so that it's above eye level so you're looking slightly upward toward it? I mean if you downward tilt the TV at the same angle you're looking up, it's all good right?

I have a newborn in the house and am thinking ahead a year or so and I don't want the little guy putting his hands on the TV, so I'm going higher with it than I would like to...

Thanks Jason. I guess I'm an analog guy in a digital world. Found this while I was getting the paperwork together for my old Mits DLP. For some reason, I saved this ad from 2002 when I bought my first HDTV, a 51 inch Sony. See attached. It's worth a chuckle...

You are right Jason. Thanks! I will plug your settings in and give it a shot. Wonder if Active Contrast being enabled would affect lag time at all or will it be minor?

That is funny. I remembered those ads! And to think I paid $600 less for this huge 70" beast I have and so much lighter and thinner goes to show how advanced technology has gotten... OLED and 4k are supposed to be the next ones up...

Anyone think buying an extra 70" 632U could be a decent resale investment 3-6 months down the road? I'm wondering if this summer or fall someone would be willing to shell out $3k or so for a new one when they are impossible to find anywhere.

stocks, bonds, etc...are investments...flat screen tv's are not
the minute you take a new tv off the sales floor it's like a car...you're taking the value hit
tv panels are dropping constantly in price
but...no predicting the future. that was just my two cents. ymmv
post #1152 of 1482
I meant a brand new one... not using it for 3-6 months and selling it used. Someone on the last page said the price on these things is rising which is why I mentioned it. Simple supply and demand economics. Best Buy for example in the last week has raised their price from $1999 to $2499 for no other reason than that most BB's are sold out of them.

i can see your point, but re-selling electronics like flat screens is a dicey bet - there are quite a few pros and retailers here...they can fill in the blanks
and they (the retailers) sell lots on slim margins...going with selling any one particular set as a private citizen would be like 'investing' without diversification...the sands shift so quickly in tv tech...many of the tv's we're talking about today weren't even around a few months ago...this one is hot now...6 months from now...?

the avs enthusiast knows in's/outs about full array vs edge lit, etc....joe sixpack? perhaps not so much...most of what i learned about tv's were on this very site over the last few months...i don't know if the perception of value will be there for the non-AV enthusiast

of course, i would not want to dissuade you from making the move...this is one man's opinion. if you do this though...it would be a great experiment...keep the thread open when you buy, and re-post when you sell. interesting to see the result.
post #1154 of 1482
I don't think I'd realistically do it... I mean tying up $2k for 6 months in the form of a huge box I need to keep in my relatively small house isn't exactly ideal. If 6 months down the line I see them selling for $3k I'm sure I'll wish I had picked up another one. Oh well.
post #1155 of 1482
Got my 632U delivered last week and hung the next day. I have it hooked up to DirecTV and a Panasonic Blu-Ray player and am enjoying it immensely. The wife keeps commenting, "It looks as if they are right in the room with us!"

Right out of the box I calibrated with settings I found in here on the MOVIE setting and felt it looked good. But found things looked more "vibrant" when moved to DYNAMIC (enhanced). Maybe it is just my personal preference, but I love this setting.
post #1156 of 1482
Congrats Sidd on the new TV. Mine should be arriving tomorrow afternoon. Is "dynamic" a setting on the TV? I can't wait to calibrate the thing
post #1157 of 1482
Certainly use what you enjoy and adds to your entertainment but Dynamic is not a mode you'll want to use if you have any sort of appreciation for accuracy. It does have some POP to it but it also has a ton of lag due to the added processing and many other issues that actually degrade the image.

I bought this TV when BB had it on sale a few weeks ago. I used Hidef calibration settings in standard mode. Great picture! As usual I could of lived with my Samsung 52" but I'm glad I did it. My only regret is I should have bought the 80", but at twice the price or more I couldn't justify it. My Sam's club had the 733 model but I didn't like the yellow and the 3D models wasn't for me. Yeah the Elites I'm sure are great but I'm not that big of an enthusiast. This TV worked great for me so far.

I am with you in your reasoning. I went to Costco last night and saw the new models and they were featuring the new 70" 3D edgelit versions and an 80 633 model next to it. I to sometimes wished I could have gotten the 80" but again, at the price they had it ($4499) it was way twice over what I paid for this 70". So I am happy for now with my purchase and with Jason's cal settings, the PQ is awesome!! BTW..I'm still getting "oohs and ahs" when I have visitors come over.
post #1160 of 1482
Anyone know the bolt type/size for the rear mounting screw holes?

I am using the stand but want to secure the TV against earthquakes so will need to use some screws into those holes then secure a strap to the wall behind it.

Can't find this info in the manual.

Thanks.

OLED sets lauch this summer at a suggested MSRP of $7500 for a 55 inch set. Ouch! Have had my open item 70LE632 for a couple of weeks now, and am satisfied with the picture quality, even with the typical LCD issues. Paying 1/2 price for the set made me feel almost a little smug..

Using the CNET settings for the 732 is a good baseline start for calibrating the set, but using a blue filter with a good calibration disc gives more accurate results. See attached. Dynamic mode is a mode that is used in a store environment - it uses much more power, and delivers a very inaccurate picture.

The 73x series calibrations do not cross over well to the 63x series and vice versa, the 7xx series are quad pixel sets (other than the new 745). Even factory presets with a cal disc will not get very accurate results on these sets (better, yes, but not really accurate).

I've had the TV for about a week now, so far so good.

I'm messed around with some of the settings posted here, mainly for GAME mode (courtesy of DaGamePimp) and I was wondering if there were any particular settings for MOVIE mode as well. I've been using the same settings for movie watching and playing games... are the game settings good for everything for this set?

Also, I was watching Game of Thrones last night via HBOGo streaming from my Xbox and I noticed a slight delay in the lip syncing. Is there a better setting for this? I switched from the Xbox to my PS3 and tried out Netflix and the issue was gone. This could be a connection issue. My PS3 is running through HDMI to the receiver while my Xbox (I have the old model) is running through component directly to the TV.

Any tips on this?
post #1164 of 1482
Research-Ken,

Check the 632 Calibrations LINK in my sig (see below). There are 2 calibrations for Movie mode and on my set the 35 ftL is slightly more accurate but due to set variables it's difficult to say which will work better for you (you may not even be able to detect a difference).

As for HBOgo many people are reporting issues with it on the Xbox360 so probably not a display problem.

I just took delivery of this set from Fry's in Palo Alto, $1899. They didn't have a display unit on the floor, but did have four in stock.

Thanks, that's good to know. I'll check out the movie mode settings later on.
post #1167 of 1482
I got mine delivered and mounted about 2 weeks ago...jumping when they went on sale and had stock locally. I have used both the Movie and Game settings from Jason which for me the game settings wins with more color pop. Thanks Jason

Finally watched a blu-ray on this panel Saturday and it was amazing...very happy!

upgraded from a 52" Samsung...no regrets!

Hey guys looking for some opinions from some people who knows more about the Sharp lineup than me. I bought the 70-632 on black Friday for $1500 and have been more than happy with it. Well last week it stopped working and Sharp is replacing it, but they can't get any 632's.

They offered me a 70-640 which from my research was the newer model but not better (most said worst). After some haggling they said they'd get me a 70-734. It's the quad pixel model and has 240hz, but are their any other differences I should know about?

They also offered a 80-632 if I paid $2000. Which would be a $3500 investment on my part total for the 80 inch.

I have a few days to decide, any opinions are appreciated.
