Furnitech FT72CCB That's the model #. I got the black or "ebonized" one. There are other wood colors as well. Everywhere sells it for pretty much the same price. Amazon, etc..

I got the cooling fans and installed them myself. I placed 3 on each side of the shelving units to exhaust the air out using 140 mm (computer cooling type) fans with a thermostat control on each side. I also cut an opening in the bottom front to allow air into the cabinet. Coolerguys has these controls and fans for that matter. I hate to get too far OT. I'll be glad to answer any questions via PM.

Either way, TV fits great on that stand. Good luck.

Have you looked at Standout Designs? They make some great quality A/V furniture that can accommodate large center channel speakers.

I got the Standout Designs 72" Haven in natural walnut about 6 months ago for my 844. The TV extends about 1/2" beyond the edge of the cabinet but looks great with the TV on it.

As a hobbiest woodworker, I was sold on the fact that the cabinet is made entirely of solid walnut. No plywood, particle board, or MDF. It is really well made. Pricey, but worth it to me.

Yeah. It's great stuff. I have the 82" Haven, and I absolutely love it. It's just so solidly built. Here's a link to some photos of mine in the official Standout Designs thread:

It's funny, when I originally ordered the stand, I was strongly considering the 90". I ultimately decided that I wanted the 70" Elite instead. It does look kind of small on that huge stand. Oh well, at least I'm all set for an upgrade at some point down the road. A 90" 4K OLED sounds pretty sweet to me! smile.gif

I play Call of of Duty on my ps3 in 3-d on the sharp lc-844u. Overall I am very pleased with the quality of the 3-d gaming on this television. The one issue I am having is the "ghosting" or "shadowing" that I am seeing especially next to text on the gaming screen such as the number of bullets I have left. I have the 3d depth control set to manual because I like a "deeper" 3d effect. But the "deeper" 3d I go when I am adjusting the depth control I can see the shadow by the bright white text on the screen go further to the left of the actual text, and as I get "shallower" on the depth control, the shadow goes the other way and ends up to the right of the actual text. When I set the depth control to auto, there is no shadow but the 3-d is not as "deep" as I would like. Is there any way to lose the shadow but keep the "deeper" 3-d?

I don't think so. The shadow is a result of crosstalk. The more depth you have in the image, the worse the crosstalk tends to be.

Thanks for the response....one other question about the tv, is there a shortcut on the remote for switching the 3D Auto Change setting from off to mode 2? Or do I have to keep going to the menu>system options>3D setup>3D auto change to change this setting? Thanks again for the info.

I agree. Anyone who is in the market for this set should pull the trigger before it's too late. From everything I've seen, the new model is actually a step backwards.

Is it your opinion about 844 vs 857 or you have some facts?
I don't question your opinion, but if you have some facts would you share those?
Any chance you were able to look at both TV side to side? Or run calibration for both?

I've seen calibration results for 844 that even better vs Elite, while Elite were produced better experience.
I replaced my 844 to 857 due to issues in 844 and I also tested another 2 844 with colorimeter - one had crack and another too visible bandings - so I wasn't able to get 844 as replacement and went with 857.
Overall 857 works better for me vs former 844. Its brighter and wider viewing angle till colors washout. While below 20% it isn't as good as 844.

I think I should get an AVS gold medal, just finished reading all 109 pages!

Now that I sucked in all the knowledge, let's see how I can contribute to this thread... smile.gif

I've been wanting to get an 80" LCD for a while now. I like this 80" Sharp but didn't want to spend this much. I came close when I saw them for $3899 at Costco. The new 857 worries me since it's edge lit. I just found an 844 display model for $2750 which seems like a good deal. I saw the new 857 & it looked good to be too with normal material on it but the 844 display seems like a good deal for more than $2k off of a new 857. So do you owners of the 844 think this is a sweet deal? Good enough to buy tomorrow? Thanks for any help & opinions.

Well I picked up the 844 open box for $2580 today. It wasn't even hooked up so they hooked up a BD player & I watched several different scenes & they all looked excellent. I was able to get it home & wall mounted. I still need to wall mount my speakers & figure out what I want to do with my equipment. I would like to get rid of the stand that held it before to open up the room a little more. Just a quick pic with the cell phone.

post #3257 of 3622
Looking good, Jim. That was a great deal.
post #3258 of 3622
Great deal. What setting was it on for your demo? Dynamic, Standard, ect...

Just the standard mode although in person it looked much brighter. The camera made the image look darker than it really was. I didn't pause the image either I just snapped a pic. wink.gif

If picture quality is a main concern then you are better off with a 65" Panasonic or 64" Samsung plasma, or their 60" variant. IMO the only reason to consider the Sharp LCDs is the price per square inch. Nothing comes close to the cost of an 80" Sharp in a plasma. Since you are looking at the 60"-70" size range again I would go with plasma, much, much better pic quality unless you can find or afford the Sharp Elite then that is a nice plasma alternative.

They work great.

Thanks, bought two pairs!
post #3265 of 3622
Yeah, Best Buy in Canada was clearing them out for $19. Too bad as I had just bought a couple of pairs for $39 ea. I believe this is happening because everyone seems to have finally standardized on bluetooth, including the new Sharps. These are, of course, IR.

When I turn the switch at the temple ON, the led flashed red. So I turned it off and charged it. After about 3 hours., turn it on, again flashes red. What's up? I assume the button next to the usb is to sync the TV signal to the glasses. Anybody have any idea what's going on here? smile.gif

Which glasses? What does the manual say? How did you charge? connecting to what?

Usually when charging, the glasses give you an indication that they are charging, is that the case with yours?
post #3268 of 3622
Sony PS3 3D glasses. No manual. I have other 3D glasses for my Sharp 844.

If these are the glasses indicated in my post, follow this link for the instructions:
https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2570/kw/3d%20glasses

Note that the battery switch must be in the ON position to charge.
