Sharp 80" pricing - Page 49

post #1441 of 1603
An 80' Sharp LCD and 65" Panasonic Plasma are completely different products, it will depend on your room size, distance from screen, lighting, etc. The 80" will require more space, the Plasma has a great picture but typically requires a darker room, LCD's do better in brighter rooms with windows. Biggest difference here is screen size, find a great 65" LCD and compare it to the Plasma, better comparison.

you would have to have a really big room for this one, can't imagine it in my room, although i think it would look great.

The place I had best buy price match now has the 857 for 3999 less 2% so $3919!!!

That's sweet.

costco here in islands has floor models with no box- sharp 80l3632 -$3500 & 80le844u for $3500- i could get 632 for addt'l 10% off+ $3150- They'd only come down on 844 to $3400 right
now- if it doesn't sell in week or so they said they'd lower price on 844 also. meanwhile i picked up the sony 70R550 for $2500 at costco- decent set but lots of reflections in my bright room with 10' of sliding doors/windows across from TV.

Don't know if it was mentioned in this massive thread as of yet but some WalMart's are clearing stock on the 80" 632, I saw two of them for $2500 each in the Vancouver WA area a couple days ago (BNIB).

That is an awesome deal, I have never seen an 80" at Walmart. I checked the Walmart website and it does not show an 80" TV, I wonder why those are there? I wish they had some in my area.

I would love to see them drop the price by $1K and close them out, I would be a buyer.

I'm wondering what would make you guys go for 857 vs samsung 75" 6400? The 6400 has micro dimming, which should conceivably make it the top choice at this price point.

thoughts?
post #1455 of 1603
I'm trying to decide between the Sharp 70" 757/857 series and the Samsung 75" 6400. Need the price on the Sammy to drop to right around $3k and I'm in.
post #1456 of 1603
Well you may want to also consider the new 80 inch smart dimming Vizio 80 inch now out. Yes it's edge lit...Retail $3799...Costco will probably have some soon for less.

I am really happy with my new Sharp LC-80LE844U from Cleveland Plazma. Not a single problem and hardly had to adjust anything right out of the box.
Outstanding Picture. Has the B series serial number.

It is a shame they finally got them right, and then discontinued them!
post #1457 of 1603
Was about to say better get one now they discontinued the 844u about 45 days ago friend got conns floor model and I finally got my 632 on July 4 as they discontinued them then got floor model so unless you want edge lit trash better get one of the full array 80" the new vizio 80s have there share of issues as well I can't deal with flash lighting and major clouding with local dimming off on those so get a sharp 80 now if you can find one
post #1458 of 1603
Costco has a Sharp 80" 844U demo unit for $3K, good deal or pickup the new Vizio 80" M instead?

got a floor model 632 today delivered from Brandsmart in Florida. Got it for $2588 before tax with a 5-year replacement warranty included (Brandsmart services their own TVs), and free delivery and basic setup included as well. It was a weird sale though.

Over the past couple of months, I've been checking local stores like Best Buy, Jetson, and hhgregg to see if I could find a 844, 633, or 632 80-inch Sharp under 3-grand. I was hoping someone had a floor model they were willing to give a deal on. On Friday, July 5th, I went to Brandsmart in Palm Beach to see if they had any 2012 80-inch Sharps left. They had one 632 on display with a price of $2999 with a 3-year warranty. On the first "haggle", the salesman offered me the same price, but with a 5-year warranty. I told him I was getting the Sharp warranty and wanted a price closer to $2500. On the second "haggle, he left and came back, but said he couldn't lower the price. After browsing around for awhile, I decided to leave. On my way out, the salesman ran over to me to say he could lower to price to $2500 if I would get a 2-year warranty for $119. I haggled one more time, and he dropped the price of the 2-year warranty to $88, but wouldn't budge on the $2500. Since I had decided $2500 was what I was willing to pay for a 632 floor model, I said yes.

As the salesman was typing my information into his computer, another Brandsmart employee who had been listening to our conversation stopped over and introduced himself as the salesman's manager. The manager chimed in and said he would give me a better "deal" for the same price. Intrigued, I watched as the manager deleted out the price of $2588 and typed in $2179, added a 5-year warranty for $349, and added delivery & setup for $60. This ended up being $2588 as before except with a replacement 5-year warranty and delivery/basic setup included. I guess the manager and/or salesman had a sales quota on warranties or were just giving themselves more commission.

Delivery and setup went well and the Brandsmart delivery guys were polite and helpful. TV is in good condition considering it was a floor model. No discernible scratches on the screen, but there are minor scratches around the bezel that you can see up close, but not from seating distance. The TV was fairly dirty and took awhile to clean (especially the sticker goo around the bezel), but looked good afterward. I haven't had a chance to try out any custom settings like Suzook's yet, but I did turn off most if not all the post-processing settings that I could find and the picture looks spectacular already in my opinion. I have a Toshiba 62-inch 62HM84 DLP TV that I'm moving back to my game room (I posted about my 62HM84 a few years ago when I replaced the HDMI panel - http://www.avsforum.com/t/438276/the-toshiba-dlp-hm-hmx-owners-thread/8040#post_19406714) so the 80-inch is quite the upgrade for me.

I'm getting a Salamander Oslo 245 media console delivered tomorrow from Sound Advice (http://www.salamanderdesigns.com/products/details/50f206e3-0683-f0d5-ddee-5125e22f19ab) so I'm looking forward to finishing everything up.

I'm good with mine for sure what do you mean compare I have both they say the 632u is the best out the line up as far as pq but 844u has 3d and 240 hz other then that really the same full array led yes please you keep waiting you will end up with that edge lit 80 just got my onkyo 2.1 today it's great took,back the zvox
post #1462 of 1603
This might be a good time to check your local Costco if they have the 844 in stock.
My local Costco just dropped the price to $3499 and have three in stock (plus 8.4% tax)...maybe will drop more if they don't clear them out.
I am in WA state...for those who are wondering..
post #1463 of 1603
hey guys,


Costco @Livermore, CA has the 632 for $2,999... only one left BNIB
post #1464 of 1603

pardon, but can you provide some facts and pics?

in theory, yes full array has to be better, but on implementation side those back lit LED are not even
BTW 80 857 much brighter vs 844, that might not be advantage for night watching, but at day it's better

in any case if you can get 80" below $3k I'd say get it

where did you get the 857 is brighter than a 844 from ? all the back lighted full array 80" Sharps I've seen are Very even in lighting coverage where the edge lighted models suffer from flash lighting & uneven brightness with clouding .

I took i1D3 to measure 844 and got up to 157 till color crush, while 857 crushed at 180
regardless of crush 844 was able to go to 190, while 857 to 238 on one spot and 252 on another

I run multiple uniformity tests against 3 844 and 2 857 and to my surprise 857 scored at 75%-100% tests better, while 20% test was better for 844 vs 857
I posted my results to 844 and 857 threads as well.

May be I got unlucky with 844 sets, I'll not argue about it.
put 844 next to 857 and you can see more punch from 857 by naked eyes.
the 70" 857 is way diff story - IMHO - not near as good as 80".

Can you provide pics and colorimeter reading results? Please.
Also, if you like 844 over 857 that's fine, I'll not argue about personal (subjective) preferences.

As I stated before - it's all about specific SET not the model that you get as QC deviates a lot in the past 3 years.

I don't have tests as I stated to my eye the back array 80"ers are very bright & evenly lighted where to me the edge lit are/were lacking in uniformity,flash lighting,clouding .
So explain the how & where you did these tests ? Are you a Pro-Calibrator ?
I'm not arguing with you at all & I will concede that the 844 is wildly inconsistent on settings & set-up model to model where the 80" 632 is solidly consistent by most all user reports model to model on the setting & set-up issue . both 632 & 844 Sharp 80" models are solid in lighting evenness , lack of any clouding & flash lighting .
Can that be said ( the lighting evenness , lack of any clouding & flash lighting issues ) of the 80" 857 ? in your opinion ?

I was for all time against edge-lit, till QC issues appeared in full array.
By design full array is superior to edge lit, I'll not even argue about it.
No, I'm not pro in TV area, just one who wants calibrate own sets.

take a look at my former 844
and 857 that replaced it.

I haven't seen any LCD without any clouding or flash lighting issues one way or another. The most expensive sets with local dimming just cover up for flash lighting to some degree. Try to use 10% gray on whole screen and you'll see it.
My point is that it is irrelevant which 80" to get 632, 844 or 857, but which specific set will get less QC issues.

the 844 has ISF mode that adds Day and Night profiles and I think it's big plus for that model, while I can't find it for 857 for a while.
We can go in PM if you want more details to not deviate from this thread.
