It didn't matter. What happens is when you get to the side of the sharp, it starts getting very dark at harder angles, just like the picture shows. It did this at multiple stores. The vizio didn't really get darker, if anything it got lighter, but just did better, where the sharp gets darker. What matters is "where" your tv is placed and if you have a floor plan that lets you see your tv at medium to hard angles. I liked the sharp it just wasn't for my type of room and it's not like there are many options for 80" plasma's smile.gif

Now, 7 years ago when I got my plasma, I had no choice but to get a plasma. Led's back then had horrible, I mean horrible side viewing.

This is the best pic that shows how it looks in person when you get to the side and it starts getting very dark/faded. In this area the vizio does much better and was an important factor for me.

Vizio 80" on right, sharp 844u on left

Wow those television displays don't even look to be decently calibrated. The darkening of the edges compared to the lightening of edges I feel is essentially the same thing. Instead of fading to black its fading to white. It may come across as superior, but I have more faith in Sharp products than Vizio considering my former 47 inch Vizios digital tuner stopped working. I wanted to take advantage of the uncompressed high def over the air local content and discovered I couldnt because the tuner went bad. I was using cable tv all that time and only used the tuner twice before! But you seem to be sold on Vizio so I cant really change anything there. I love Sharp for the price, quality, and Quattron innovation. The colors have more variation.

Hmm correct the vizio has its place but be real the sharp 844u is a better picture fully array vs edge lit umm don't need any more who views there TVS from extreme sides now maybe the newer edge lit sharps you viewed do suffer but the 632u and 844u do a damn good job and don't have edge lit junk issues now the question is can you find a orginal 80" good luck there I can post side pics of both TVS we are not talking about the newer sharp models as they are edge lit as well the originals. Now I will say vizios quality as gotten better over the years.

How are you supposed to set the backlight?
post #3515 of 3622
Looking to get 3 to 5 3D glasses for the 80 inch 844u. What is avaiable that you recommend?
post #3516 of 3622
I noticed that there is a Sharp 80LE642U now available at my local Sam's Club for a reasonable price. Looking at the specs it seems to be very similar to the 80LE632U being full array and 120Hz refresh but has a 4M:1 contrast ratio versus the 632's 6M:1. I also noted that the pictures of the 642 show that it uses the same chassis as the 632 as well as the 844 so that may bode well for performance.

Sharp does not list anything about this model on their web site so it still remains a bit of a mystery if this is old stock or a special run of sets built for wholesale clubs. There is also very little in the way of information on the set when you Google the model number.

Anyone know if this is a 2D version of the 844u? I am looking seriously at this set since it features a full array backlight and other good bits from the 632/844 series.

they are misleading the customer by saying full array it's a full array edge lighted model
look at the specs pages to the links I posted they clearly state Edge Lit

even edge lit models call their LED lighting as backlight
that is marketing to confused this product with a higher quality 90" model
'Full Back Array ', unless it says it that way it IS edge lit , trust me on this Sharp has been doing this confusing marketing to fool people to think this a better or as good as the 844 & 632 were

My question is what brightness should the backlight be set when calibrating tv? 35ftl? My understanding of backlight is that it independent of brightness and contrast but does affect black levels if set too high. Backlight is more of a preference thing.
post #3524 of 3622
About to say thought all sharps are now edge lit junk that's just brighter still only 90"ers and original 632 633 844u are full array

I'm not sure what others have been using but I have a 632 & those settings don't translate very well to your 844 , but If you search this thread there are many settings offered up smile.gif

Was loving my TV but am doing the run around with Sharp also. Had it for only 6 months and they've already had to replace main board because of really bad 3d ghosting, and now several pixels are stuck on green right near the center of the viewing screen. I've gone through two rounds of detailed pictures with them and they are saying that the defect is "within specifications'. I did a search and found a few similar stories, but wanted to post up again in the hopes that others have experienced this and would be willing to share if/how they were able to get it resolved.
post #3529 of 3622
How did you identify the ghosting? I have always had ghosting on this set ever since I bought it. I was never impressed by the 3D but just put it down to the limited capability of this set. Now I'm thinking there maybe something wrong. If you had Sharp fix it, how bad was it before, and what did it look like after. Was there a particular BD that highlighted the ghosting.

Thanks

I put my 844 in Game Mode and calibrated it with the Disney WOW BD. No SOE and I'm happy. Am I missing anything in the other modes? Does anyone else do this?
post #3531 of 3622
Don't ever use gm mode lol user setting or dynamic I adjusted settings on mostly my user set
post #3532 of 3622
I put it on User when I watch live sports, but no matter what I do, Game and Movie seem to be the only modes that I don't see that SOE.

Can you share your settings?

Sounds good, thanks!

Was watching the Broncos game last night, they chiefs' uniforms were screaming bright white, need to tone it down a bit smile.gif

What do you guys think about this mount for the 844? http://www.costco.com/SANUS-Simplicity-SXDP6-Universal-Large-TV-Wall-Mount.product.100071820.html
post #3540 of 3622
I used this one from Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001U7CAUU?ie=UTF8&force-full-site=1&ref_=aw_bottom_links

Pretty inexpensive and worked well for the 80"
