Yes, 103's. They have worked with all of my 3D TVs/Projectors: Sharp, Panasonic, Sony, and JVC.

When I registed my TV at AQUOSADVANTAGE I was given a link to download the user's manual which looks like




The back of the LC-80LE844U is just like the 847 and 745 series.

What are some of the best Soundbars for the sharp-aquos-lc-80le844u both aesthetically and acoustically?

Any suggestions on a slim wall mount? Just ordered the tv and can't wait!!! Also, what should one do or not do with a new expensive tv of this caliber right outta the box? Total newbie here.

Looked through the thread and it seems some folks like the Sanus LL11 as the slimmest mount. If you need to move it around, the Sanus XF228 seems to be nice.

I have the XF228 , it is built like a tank pulls out far from the wall allowing for very severe angles to be used , can slide side to side ,finger tip control on tilting & angling , even as a micro adjustment for leveling the display once in place the arms are Very thick & heavy duty cast aluminum so there no flexing at all . It the Cadillac of Display Mounts . you can find them on sale quite often for a 1/3 of retail , I got mine from J&R NYC shipped free to Cali .

So, I just received my LC-80LE844U today.

Are there any special "break-in" procedures, slides to run or "special settings" for the Sharp you found helpful when you bought yours?

Thanks in advance.

I'll put more details in the laservue thread once I do some more tweaking and serious viewing, but my quick comparison is that the LV had the better image/detail. That said, so far I really prefer the image on the 844U. I think part of that LV clarity was due to the screen which I do no t miss at all...great at night, but incredibly reflective during the day. The 844U has an amazing image day or night, and I'm not distracted my by mirror image on the screen. wink.gif I also am not missing the fan noise, artifact issues, or that ridiculous boot up time.

Please keep in mind though that mine was an exchange not a purchase, so I imagine if I had paid out of pocket for this I'd be much more critical in comparison. If there's anything specific you want me to check for, let me know!




HI SJC,

Thank you for your review of the 80LE844U. I am happy to hear that you are enjoying your new TV. It sounds like the LE844 might be at least as good as the Laservue L75-A91. My one concern was when you said the laservue had more detail than the sharp. Perhaps with calibration that might not be true? Would you say this tv was a lateral move, an upgrade or a downgrade over the laservue?

I'm still on the fence but this TV might just be good temporarily, for me, until 4K tv's become more available. But I am still considering the new sharp 80", the samsung 75es9000 or the 75F8000.

Decisions, decisions. smile.gif

Congratulations to you and your new TV. Unlike plasma where we ran slides and break in, there is no formal or recommended break in for LCD that I know of. First thing I did after assuring myself that everything is working properly was to upgrade the TV firmware. This will assure that your network connection is working properly. Ran some apllications on the TV, i.e Netflix, Vudu etc...I then played with Movie and Standard various settings to get myself familiar with the CMS, all the settings etc... I ran the TV as much as possible for the first 30 days, assuming if any electronic parts were to fail they would fail early on. The bath tub curve of failure in computer components.

There are various settings posted which will help you get the picture you want.

PS Get some 3D glasses. The Sharp 3D is pretty good!!!smile.gif

A couple of quick questions:


(1) Does your Sharp HDTV take about 15-20 seconds to "boot up" and show an image when you hit the "ON" button?


(2) Separately, do you also notice that filmed content (2D movies) takes on a distracting "Video" or "3D-like" quality when compared to DLP or Plasma displays?


Thanks in advance!

Well after several months of trouble free viewing, I had the random re-boot two days ago. No other problems since then. I am really curious what is causing it. I don't think there has been a SW update lately so there have not been any changes in my system. It is not that annoying since it only takes 10 secs or so to re-boot but something is definitely not right. .
post #2748 of 3622
I had the reboot the other night as well.
post #2749 of 3622
What were you guys doing when it rebooted? Were you streaming internet content, using the set's internal tuner, or watching something via one of the inputs?
post #2750 of 3622
Watching DirecTV thru HDMI input 1. The TV just shuts off then turns on again
post #2751 of 3622
I've been researching this model for over a month now, mostly on line.
2 weeks ago I had my first look at it at BB, and it was quite a disappointment: a) its color was harsh, b) its sharpness was unimpressive when compared to the next Samsung 75" (though costs $4K more). In short, the local BB visit took off lots of steam from me :-(

I kept saying to myself that probably BB mistreated the display unit (!)
However, the tough reality is I can't deny that comparing to my 20-month old Samsung 64", this BB's display model of the Sharp AQUOS LC-80LE844U was 8 to 10.

Despite of this negative realization, my own assessment is that this is the only 80" that I could afford.
Please help with my questions:
  1. 2D signal up-converted to 3-D is a feature that is very important to me. What is your assessment of this feature on this model?
  2. My room is relatively large for watching TV (23' x 14'). It also has a single large sliding door (8' x 6.5'). The TV will be watched on the longer side. Any recommendations to get the optimal viewing experience. Presently, in this room I have the Samsung 64", which btw, is very impressive on color, sharpness, and up-converted 3D.

Thanks.
post #2752 of 3622
When I was making my decision it was the Panny 65" vs this TV
I went for Size over picture quality and I am very happy I did.
For me, I am willing to sacrifice some picture quality for a larger size, others are not - you have to make that decision

What helped me decide is I used painters tape to trace the outline of both TV's on the wall to give me an idea of the sizes

Has anyone heard or seen any great deals on the LC-80LE844U recently? I spoke with some retailers and they said the first shipment of the new models will be the first week of April. I imagine this will be the month to grab last years model at a great price and maybe some bundled glasses. smile.gif

Check to see if "Film Mode" is on. If it is, turn it off.

For all we know, the new models may not even have as good of a picture. I definitely prefer the look of the 2013 models. The new stand and bezel looks way better than the previous models, but the fact that they are edge lit is very concerning.

This is excellent news, as it's the 80 incher I'm in the market for. If it even has a picture that is equal to the 844, I'll wait for it simply because of the aesthetics alone.

Yeah ,
there has been some confusion due to early reports of the 2013 lines that they were edge lighted , each stat sheet I've seen all has them listed as edge lighted but further down the sheets they show the 80" model as full array back lit,
the Japanese models now on sale in Japan , all the 80"ers are back lighted as well .
basically they ( the 80"s ) are the same as the 844 & 632 but with updated bezels & stands , with tweaks to some of the processing , with a new matrix on the screen as well which is claimed to be brighter (smaller grid for the pixels means more light passing thru )
Of course Sharp is mum on what they really will be , we just have to wait till they hit the stores , as this same thing happened with the 2012 lines also .
So in reality we all have to wait till they are actually seen by some else other than the Sharp marketing types & the paid shill early reviewers .
Of course C/NET will give the new sets a bad review , Sharp refuses to give Payola to C/NET , like Sammy & Sony do . smile.gif

on a side note to all who bought the Darbee , As I figured they have sold the licensing tech to Lumagen
