IT"S called Berkshire Grove 76. They had 3 different sizes,i only see the 62 on their web site right now. If you google Berkshire Grove you can see it elsewhere.

To MR. mkerdman,


As long as your laptop or home computer has the WiDi Intel® Wireless Display program/software/hardware built in then you can buy a Netgear adapter that plugs into the HDMI connection on your TV.
I have my Fjuitsu laptop on my bar in the kitchen which has the WiDi Intel® Wireless Display built in and the Samsung 55" LED with the Netgear push adapter connected to the TV so I can use it as a monitor if I like or just play a movie i've downloaded from my laptop on the Samsung mounted on the wall. The device is cheap < $50 or so and easy to set up. I love it! You just use KM Player or Windows Media Player on full screen mode and it looks great on the TV. I use the Firefox add on DownloadHelper to save youtube and other supported video types to burn a DVD or just save and play/watch on the big screen.
I keep looking at Fry's online price match they have now so I'll probably bite the bullet and find the best online deal on the Sharp LC-80le844u soon as income tax time is over!
Good luck!

I've came from a Sony 60 XBR2 previously so i am accustom to a quality TV.
I've had this TV for about 2 months now and i am impressed by it's picture every day. I also installed a Dardee Darblet and the sharpness and color intensity make the picture even better. I believe that this technology will be in televisions in the future.

I'm coming from a 60" XBR1, so I'm very interested in your observations. How do you think the Sharp compares to the Sony when it comes to handling motion? This is one thing I always thought my XBR1 excelled at. Also, how are the black levels on the Sharp in comparison to your old set?
post #2797 of 3622
I see no motion jutter at all, i've watched nascar and the superbowl and just don't see any jutter at all. When i first got the set i saw motion jutter and SOE but once you ajust the setting it is gone. I am very happy with the black levels, every day that i watch this TV i am amazed by the picture. The Darbee also made the colors deeper and sharpened the picture to where you can see every imperfection in peoples faces.

For the most part I have also eliminated motion anomalies by turning off all motion enhancement. Occasionally the problem recurs, usually with movies on TNT via Comcast. I have not been able to determine the cause.

I do have motion stuttering with Apple TV, which I have been unable to correct, although others do not report this problem.

On balance, I really like the set, the image quality is excellent. The motion problems are mystifying, I can't understand how Sharp could not have seen this during development.

I was watching golf on this TV at the store the other day, and I noticed when the camera was tracking the ball in flight that the ball would sometimes split into several different balls. It was very annoying. Is this the type of motion problems that people are referring to?

I'd like to know this as well. I'm about to drop the hammer and purchase, and this is a deal breaker for me. I play PS3 a few hours a night, and watch blu-rays & HD DirecTv most of the time, but when I want to watch sports or fast motion programming, I hate it if this is the case and the image cannot be "smooth." Perhaps (I'm hoping) this is due to the edge enhancement features being too overbearing on that unit you saw, and that they can be dialed back for certain programming and thus eliminating this effect.

For $4000, this thing should be better than that.
post #2801 of 3622
I own the 632 and 844. Never seen that anomaly
post #2802 of 3622
I have seen it. Motion enhancements need to be turned off. Then there's no problem
post #2803 of 3622
In regards to the 844 you have...could you tell me please what you have done with the edge enhancement tools they offer? (i.e. off, 240 Aquamotion, etc. , whatever) Just curious. I'm so nervous that I'm going to buy the wrong set, and then the wife will never let me live it down.

I'm planning on a professional calibration too....maybe that will help? Damn, this is a hard call to make!

Mine is a 632 like one of Suzook's. But I also see the same thing on my 70-732 if motion enhancments are on 120 high or 120 low. Turning it off solves the mutiple golf balls and base balls. It also takes care of SOE. Now, my wife happens to love SOE. So 120hz high it turned on in the living room on the 70. Since I watch just about all sports, it's set to off on the 80 out in the man cave.

post #2807 of 3622
OK, so since this is going to be the main tv for the family of 6...how easy will it be for me to turn it off? Is it an easy few button pushes and it's gone? I'm thinking I'll leave it on the 240 Aquamotion to get the SOE for the family (they like it) and then when its sports time, turn it off.

I guess I'm asking is it an easy enough thing to remedy with out having to go through a ton of menus?

Thank you SO much for the help. I'm feeling pretty relieved now. The wife flipped when i said it was going to be 80". She'll love it when it get here though!
post #2808 of 3622
It's very simple to turn off. Setup menu, go to advanced, scroll down to motion enhancement and pick your choice.

Hey Suzook, I see you're still keeping an eye on that 90. When are you gonna breakdown and pick it up?

Just wait until she actually sees that beast in your home. When you are looking at the TVs in the store, even the biggest ones don't seem that big. Once you get the set in your home, however, it can be a bit overwhelming at first, especially if you are majorly going up in size. I still remember the day my 56" Zenith Inteq rear projection set was delivered many years ago. My wife (actually she was just my girlfriend back then), was so taken aback by the sheer size of the thing that she literally started weeping.

I have a local deal down to $3800 or $3500 with 5 year warranty at $800, so $4200 with warranty. It's getting harder to not just pull on the trigger on this versus a 2014 model...

Wow! Great price on 844u but warranty seems like a bad deal. You could take the TV only deal and get the warranty through Sharp for ~$200.

What are the details on the sharp warranty for $200? I'm not one for extended warranties, so I'd skip it for sure at the local dealer and try instead to push the price a little further.
post #2817 of 3622
yeah skip the in store warranty for sure. When you register your tv you will get an offer for the extended warranty

weird because those apps have been there prior. Im certain its probably just updates to the apps themselves.
post #2819 of 3622
So how does the Sharp warranty work? If the set breaks, where do you take it? I assume $200 doesn't buy you an in-home warranty.

It's in home service.

If you registered the set on the Aquos Advantage website, Sharp will start sending you emails and snail mails after a few months with an offer to extend your warranty with an invitation number. Or, you can just call them.
