Official Sharp 60" AQUOS LC-60LE632U Owners Thread

post #1 of 357
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone, new owner of:

Sharp LC-60LE632U right before Thanksgiving... Wooo Woo


Used some of the setting here to calibrate. WOW... Awesome picture!



By the way PS3- BF3 has bad lag in this set.. even with game mode on, its better in game mode but not very smooth. I had to tweak Game mode further to get it to a level where I don't personally notice lag too much... I did experiment with PS3 settings, I did find that if you set the PS3 to output in 720p and uncheck 1080p/i It plays very smooth ... Looks pretty good still even at 720p.. I think I can't tell THE LOWER RESO diff..... but maybe I was just so tired from tweaking set that my eyes fooled me but def.. the lag is pretty much gone.

was going to get the sharp 60" 79U but I went from a 47 LG (freaking awesome CCFL LCD picture and best lag free gaming!) and decided awe man just get an LED and try something diff.


I do need help on my surround sound setup

I have a Sony STR-3000 ES A/V hooked up to Polk Speakers systems: CSi5 center channel + 2 floor standing speakers + 10" sub woofer + 2 surround speakers

Have new comcast HD digital box with optical and hdmi out, sony Blu-ray S570, PS3 slim 160gig


How would you guys hook all this up....?

Note: I hooked up TV via HDMI to Comcast HD box and then that to my Sony receiver via optical. The Sound has weird echo effect.... weird.. Although If I mute the TV it removes the echo.


Am I doing something wrong????



By the way I built a cool entertainment center.. looks very modern, minimalism... and looks awesome with my A/V gear... will post pics later..

and I will post my finding to share with you guys


Any ways I hope you guys enjoy your television, I def. will!

I got one two, After using the wow disk this TV shines!. I do see some clouding, but not too bad. Has anyone else seen this? How do you minimize it? That is the only fault that I can see.

I've calibrated mine using some of the settings I've seen here on AVS... its amazing for HD content "WOW", especially for the price... In my opinion!

I just need to get my surround sound 5.1 system fine tuned.. I'm a rookie on the surround stuff..

Dont really know how to set my stuff up besides the very basic setup that its set up like now ... ... If anyone has any suggestions to fine tune my system id be appreciative of the help!
I did build a pretty cool looking entertainment center, Ill post pics maybe tonight West coast time

Seeing that you do not have any HDMI inputs on that unit, I would hook up the TV box using HDMI direct to the TV, then use optical out from the TV to the Sony unit. Same with the Blu-Ray using HDMI.

I just ordered one tonight at Beast Buy; not being delivered until next Tuesday, so plenty of time to study up. Unfortunately, this appears to be the only thread for the 60" model (70" and 80" versions have long threads) and it's only surround sound talk. Bummer.

I have the 633u model from Costco.

I hook my system as follows:

cable outlet to settop box with coaxial cable
settop box to receiver IN with hdmi
bluray to receiver with hdmi
dvd player to receiver with hdmi
receiver OUT to tv with hdmi

Control everything with Cox remote.
post #10 of 357
Any professional reviews on this set? I've heard positive things. I've got my eye on it.
post #11 of 357
I picked one of these up for about 800 a few months ago. Love it so far. Was just wondering what settings you guys are using on it. (link to settings is fine with me)
post #12 of 357
I have not watched a BluRay yet, but after tweaking the settings per this forum this tv has impressed me so far.

Had a Samsung PN650 50" plasma on this stand before, the 632U seems like a good replacement.

Hey Realrollo,
Where did you get the settings? My picture is awesome as well, but some scenes looked washed out.
Thanks.

Thinking of getting one of these, but I just got burned by a Panasonic 50" Plasma after having it for less than two years!! Panasonic is always advertised as being so reliable and long lasting so I'm wondering about how the Sharp brand is supposed to hold up. thanks!

Is this set just edge lit?
Looks like the 70" is full array.

Yes this is edge-lit and the 70" is full.

I took delivery of one two nights ago and using the calibration settings in this thread, am very impressed. I've still got some massaging to do, but I'm very satisfied by what I've seen and have to say that if this is considered to be deficient, I can't imagine what the "really good" sets are like. It's a quantum leap over our old three CRT-based Sony.

thinking of getting this display but there is no info on it anywhere, i would like to know about this set, performance, issues etc... so im a little scared to order it.

Have you tried Google? Seriously, hit up the customer REVIEWS at Amazon and Best Buy and check the talk on the calibration thread in the post above yours. I think it's a great set for the money. It's not perfect, but for the price, I don't think you'll be hating yourself for buying. If you're worried, buy from a place with a flexible return policy, like Best Buy or Costco.

I picked up my 60LE632 for under $1K and after proper calibration it is an excellent set, nothing at that price point can best it IMHO (and I looked at all the $ competition). I am an avid videophile and as such I am very critical so had this set's calibrated image not impressed me and had it not been gaming capable it would have been returned right away.

-- Update April 2012: Calibrations from 4/20/2012 forward will be done with the combination of a profiled i1Display Pro (D3) colorimeter and i1Pro spectro. This should yield even more accurate results on my display and more calibration offerings in the hope that it helps more of you achieve greater accuracy vs out of the box presets.

-- Update March 2012: On my 632 something has changed regarding Game mode and the only thing I can think of is I must have done my initial Game mode calibration before I updated the firmware on the display. Game mode is no longer as accurate as it was previously, not that it was ever as capable as Movie mode regarding accuracy.

The 60LE632 does not handle 4:4:4 properly so set your Blu Ray players to YCbCr 4:2:2 if they have selectable modes (usually the default AUTO setting will be 4:2:2).

Turn off Deep color as it is not currently used but can cause other issues (no point in having it enabled).

For Cable/SAT you'll probably see less motion issues with Sports if your providers box is sending 720p vs 1080i.

Many with the 70" 632 say these settings work great, some have used them on the 80" 632 but the 80" appears to be a bit different from the 60" and 70" so YMMV.

PLEASE keep in mind these settings are here only to assist you in getting something more in the ballpark of being accurate (6500k/D65) versus the factory presets that we have been given on these 632 series displays. If you get lucky you'll possibly end up being about as accurate as you can get short of buying your own calibration gear or hiring a pro, if not then I hope you'll at least enjoy the settings. My goal here (as I have said over and over ) is to help build a greater appreciation for accuracy and thus see more people take their video quality a bit more serious by either going DIY calibration with proper gear or having an in home professional level calibration done by a certified ISF tech. I know for many the thought of spending several hundred more for a calibration on a relatively inexpensive display is not something they wish to do but as a long time videophile and avid A\\V enthusiast I have to say that in most cases it's worth every penny and the only true way to see your display reach its full potential. There's a bonus to it as well... you'll learn many things along the way as most of the good techs take the time to explain what they are doing and why. If you go the DIY route you'll be required to learn far more but I honestly find it kind of rewarding to know that I am enjoying my own handywork.

NOTE: these displays do not have a properly functioning CMS (Color Management System) so none of them can be calibrated perfect on all aspects (in Movie mode they can get very close).

There also is an issue with RED sat/lum on these sets in Movie mode (that cannot be properly 100% corrected, an outboard CMS unit would be required). It now seems Blue is the main offender in Game mode.

* If skin tones appear too red you can shift Red HUE positive toward Yellow until they look more natural.

These sets require trade-offs here and there and it's a fine balancing act.

Also please feel free to make constructive comments on the calibrations and if I can help you tweak it more to your set (your liking) by making suggestions I will be happy to do so.

Best of luck,
Jason

Why Game mode? Doesn't that turn OFF most post-processing and thus degrade the image? Also, why switch the Blu-ray player from 24 Hz to 60 Hz since that eliminates the 1:1 frame rate match of film and thus returns us to the bad old days of 3:2 pulldown and judder? Your advice seems to be, "Turn off all the advancements in video technology and make this modern HDTV behave like an old analog set."
post #24 of 357
Interested in this set, how are black levels? I can't seem to find any reviews online that have any numbers to compare to other sets.

Also, what is the consensus on clouding? Edge lit scares me a little bit in this regard...
post #25 of 357
The black levels look good. After setting it up, I came home to my 4-year-old 42" Philips LCD and looked at the grayish matte bars and got sad and that's a decent-looking set.

I have some faint clouds which are only visible during credits with white text on black or when it's switching inputs before the signal comes through. On extremely dark material, like the last Harry Potter movie, their was some minor clouding visible, but the bars remained solid black and there is no flashlighting. My girlfriend thinks I'm nitpicking and for 99% of the time, the clouds aren't visible. Compared to my old set, it's the least of its problems and I'm not going to have a cow over it.

i have read the amazon reviews, however i think most of them are from joe 6 packs and while it does get good reviews i dont rely heavily on them. i worry about clouding and light bleed and flashlighting mostly and that demographic wouldnt know clouding if they saw it and wouldnt care anyway.

i am a plasma guy but im on my 4th plasma in 3 months because all of the manufactures are having issues with plasmas this year that are truly defects.

i am prolly gonna get the 60 632 and try it out, amazon has been great with me so far but if i try to return another display i dont what they will do.

The so-called advancements you speak of are little more than marketing for most of todays hdtv's, before you respond with a borderline offensive post why not simply try it for yourself and see (no harm there). Now if you like all the 'advancements' (SOE, fake 120Hz) then by all means use them but I can assure you that what you will be watching is not what most here at AVS strive for. Game mode is simply smoother with less lag, 24 Hz on this set actually creates more judder than 60 Hz (directly compare and you'll see). Remember this is not a high end set and as such I am afraid to say most of its bells-n-whistles should be disabled for the best possible image.

If you are simply not a video purist then that is certainly your right but there is no need to chastise those of us that are (and there are many here at AVS).

what is the difference between the 632 and 6300?

It's a solid set with good BL, but as with most every edge lit LED LCD it has its cons. Expect some clouding & flashlighting but just how much will vary set to set. I also own plasma's, ccfl LCD's, DLP and even some of those old school analog displays for comparison. I own a higher end 2010 3D plasma and it too has its cons but the 60LE632 can hold its own and bests it on some aspects. Obviously there is no 'perfect set' and if there were we would all own it and be done.

The 6300 appears to use a different (less capable) engine and does not offer all the same calibration controls (especially regarding color).
