Official Sharp AQUOS LC-80LE844U Owners thread - Page 110

post #3271 of 3622
Greetings fellow 80" owners.... So, how have you guys been doing with your 80" Friend? I have had mine now for a little over a year, and have been very happy with mine. I never got it prof. Calibrated, but I have tweaked the Standard and dynamic mode to my liking. I really like the TV and have been pleased with it. That being

said, I see pictures of the new LC-80LE857U and it sure does look pretty with that thin silver bezel. I have not seen it in person, but was thinking it being edge lit, that the 844u would still be superior. I am happy with this set though, and will not probably upgrade until 4k becomes mainstream, and the 4k sets become more

realistic and reasonably priced. So, I think this TV should work well for me for at least another 3-5 years. What are the rest of you thinking, feeling, etc.?

I've had mine for just under a month, I sit maybe 8ft away, picture is stunning!

I'm in Standard mode, tweaked settings posted by SonyHome (his was too bright for my liking).

I'm feeding it through an Onkyo TX-NR1010, cablebox (Mediacom) set to native. I do get SOE on occasion, but it's only for a very short while then the motion is fluid again. Other than that, zero complaints.

Mine is a display model from the nearby HHGregg.

I have a 80" 632 & have had it well over a year 1 & 1/2 now .
I'll keep this display for a while unless I jump to a 90" & move the 80" into the bedroom (or place the 80" right next to a new 90" , the wife would kill me but what the heck ! )
Very satisfied , I agree these 2012 models will last about years to come over the edge lit one , I seen the new line they are pruty when off L O L . PQ ? I didn't feel they are a improvement over the 844 & 632 to my eyes (looked at the new 70" ) haven't seen the new 80" .

hi,

it's hard to get good set out of many QC issues regardless of tech and brand.
If your set works as you like it "don't fix it till it broken".
this 844 tech wise has to work just fine for the next 10+ years, so it might outlive your new needs for 4k or 8k or etc

the real issue is that if 844 can't be fixed the Sharp will give you 857 and you start with lottery again.

Enjoy your TV

Do you have the OPC On? Especially in dark room having OPC on auto adjusts the backlight for the lighting condition while still giving good light during the day. You may need to adjust the OPC Range to suit your lighting condition for night and day.

I do have OPC on, and I'm in a dark basement, so external light is not an issue. I'll post my settings tonight.

It looks pretty good to me right now even though I was just playing around with it a little bit. I can't wait to try these settings tomorrow though to see how it does!

$2580 is unbelievable price on 80" 844u! Just curious did you see the build date on your set to see how long it may have been out of box?

Glad it's working out for you. Keep in mind that you can tweak the OPC Range to adjust for your day and night lighting conditions.

Didn't even think to look at it. I'm sure it was an on the floor a while although I know for the last month or more it wasn't hooked up since I kept looking at it sitting there unplugged. wink.gif

Well some people may want to consider the new 80 inch smart dimming Vizio 80 inch 3D now out. Yes it's edge lit....Costco will probably have some soon for less.

http://store.vizio.com/led-lcd-hdtvs/m801da3.html

I am really happy with my new Sharp LC-80LE844U from Cleveland Plasma. 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!

I have been following this thread for over a year...Thanks to all of you for the outstanding information on this set!

If anyone is ready to buy I would advise you to get the 844 ASAP...Might want to check with Chris at Cleveland Plasma if he has any left...My purchase from him went flawlessly..!!

I am assuming the +1 though +10 are the 10 pts adjust menus. but i seem to cant locate them? What am i doing wrong or overlooking.

Sorry.

Position allows you to set 1 thru 10. Move the position to adjust for each of these.

844u has serial #s with A, B & C, which I'm assuming represents some revisions over time. I used to have A serial # but when I got it replaced from Sharp it had B serial #. I noticed PQ looked better on the B serial #. Now it seems 844u is shipping with C serial #s. No one is sure what exactly are different between these.

Glad it's working out for you. While I thought out of box settings looked good, I felt I was getting better color accuracy and some pop to the PQ with these settings. Also I really like the OPC with OPC Range for having the TV auto adjust the backlighting depending on my viewing lighting condition. I can use the same setting for both Day and Night viewing.

Mine has a s/n that starts with 2, all numbers, no letters. The same s/n is on the back label as well as the side label.

I have much work to do on cabinet for flush mount. Will involve some sort of bridge brace extention, Having a handy man come take a look next week. But I took a few snaps with a droid dna camera phone of Imax Space


post #3297 of 3622
Is anyone using SHARP AQUOS Remote Control iPhone app? I got it to work with the 844u but is there a way to get it to work with DTV STB HR34/700? I can click DEVICE and select STB on the remote app but it doesn't seem to do anything.
post #3298 of 3622
Some really good apps for android anyways:

Remote Launcher: I use this to open and kill xbmc, specially when wife is at home and i am not and she wants to watch a movie or episode of television.
It can do anything windows/linux can do right over your phone. Gives you nice buttons and actions. Can launch video game for kids too while away, and turn on / off computer etc.

DirecTV Remote+, this works and toggles between all 6 directv boxes in the house.

Yatse: Hands down best xbmc remote ever "only for android", its such a great app

AVR Remote; Denon / Marantz AVR users

Sharp: Aquos Remote Lite / only one i have tryed. Buttons seem small on 1080p phone. but that might be issue with phone resolution more than anything.

Next issue:

ARC and denon 4311ci

Netflix works, hulul plus works,

Vudu gets no sound, but picture is fine in hdx or others. Its not taking over the sound for some reason.

Anyway to kill the double volume bar, its really confusing to see absolute bar, and and the sharp volume bar at the same time, they arent even in sync. (even after changing toggling absolute in denon setup. They are like 1-2 off.

another poor implementation of ARC i believe, perhaps time to switch to toslink, I was excited to try ARC but it seems there are some major issues here.

844 = B serial

I cannot see a single patch or corner splotch, perhaps ai got a near perfect panel.

The number 1 amazing thing, is 1:1 pixel ratio. OMG this is amazing with XBMC, Arcsoft TMT, etc. I feel spoiled now, coming from a 73" DLP.

I know 1:1 pixel ratio is inherent of LCD and Plasma , but I feel like I've missed out, I havent owned an LCD since a Vizio 32" in 2006 or so.

I have a mits 73835 dlp that has served me well but i am starting to get the upgrade itch. You seem happy with your purchase thus far coming from a dlp. Any issues or regrets:p?

If you do upgrade from your Mits to a Sharp, the first thing you might notice is the lack of fan noise. The second thing will be 18 inches of depth regained in your viewing area. If you are migrating from a 73 to an 80 inch (or thinking about it), do you have space for a 90 inch? The difference in width between your DLP and the 80 inch sharp is 4 inches on either side, and the Sharp is just under 2 inches taller.

81 x 18 x 49 inches are the dimensions of the lc90le745u. The width dimension of 18 inches includes the stand. Something to ponder.
