Great to hear, Thanx
post #62 of 318
Just received my LC-60LE745U, notice some motion blur but need to calibrate the TV. Have you seen any documentation that specifically referenced this TV as far as calibration goes?

Thanks for the review. Good to hear that you are not experiencing any issues with it. Mine is coming from Paul's via Amazon as well, and it will be here Thursday!
post #64 of 318
Just received mine yesterday from Paul's @ Amazon too. Had a pleasant surprised that the free delivery from Paul's/Amazon actually is a white glove delivery, not curb side! The nice driver brought it in, opened the box, and plug it in to make sure it's in a working condition! The TV is pretty light especially consider it's size, and could be very easily life up by 2 person. Base is on the light side, when compare to other flat panel TV which their base usually have some good weight. But it doesn't seem like to affect the stability of the TV. Will gonna wall mount it later on.

I had very little time with the TV last night, but so far so good. I did turn off any dynamic feature & motion compensation feature (we just hate those soap opera effect even on regular TV viewing). My wife did mention that it (the TV itself) doesn't look as "pretty" as a Samsung (included our old edge light LED Samsung). And I also noticed that Harmony doesn't have this TV in their database when I tried to setup the remote. However, I just use the older 70LE735 model's code, and everything seems work fine.

Also, I think I'm kinda like that OPC (optical picture control) feature. It monitor your ambient light and adjust the brightness of the screen accordingly. So during the day, it will be brighter and at night, it will scale back the brightness. And it's scaling range is user adjustable. I think it's a good feature for those watch it in bright living room during the day w/out hurting their eye at night (too bright). Just I'm not sure how it'll affect the PQ tho. I'll try to calibrate it myself later on to see how it goes before I hire a pro to calibrate for me since this TV will only be use mainly (99%) for regular TV viewing anyway, hardly any use for movie.

Oh lastly, mine didn't come with a manual? Do any of yours come with it? Just wanna make sure even tho it could easily download from Sharp's web site.

no body is sending paper manuals anymore with AVR's . I just got a Onkyo TX-NR1009 & it has no paper manual as well just a CD .

Here's a quick link to the PDF manual from Sharp's web site if anyone needs it:

Actually, mine did come with a paper manual which is the same multi-model manual that can be downloaded via link in the previous post.

ON 2nd thought ,
my 632 80" had the manual in a weird spot inside one of the foam blocks you might re-look them over agin ...

I actually had mine delivered from Abt last weekend but have not moved into the place yet, so I didn't want to post until i had some hands-on time with the TV. I have turned the usual junk off (120hz, film mode, OPC, and brightness down) but so far I am somewhat unimpressed. On dark screens I do see some clouding/flashlighting.

After seeing a friend's sharp 60" 2011 model with dark spots in the corners during all-white screens such as hockey (the opposite of flashlighting) I am pleased to say this is not an issue on my set.

One reason I picked this was the matte screen, which works well in my application. I briefly popped in Pirates of the Caribbean 3D with Sharp glasses and felt like I noticed a substantial amount of crosstalk. I never noticed this with my Samsung D7000, but will wait to draw conclusions until I have them in the same apartment at the same time.

Yes, mine came with the user manual. It was in a weird spot.....i think it was attached to one of the foam on top. I remember i had to really look for it.
post #71 of 318
I got my 70" last Saturday. I have not changed any of my settings (since i don't really know what to change). I have my AV Mode set to standard right now. OPC is still on for me. So far i have not noticed any clouding or DSE that people were talking about.

I really like the TV so far. I think I will like it even more after some calibration. I do have a couple of questions for our more experienced owners.

1) Can anyone please share their calibration settings? Like I mentioned, I am not good at doing calibration. I have tried a couple of times. I did not like what i did at all. If possible, I would like to try someone else's setting.

2) Is there any free 3D video clips that I can download and test this 3D TV? I do not have a 3D blu-ray player, but i do have a HTPC hooked up to the TV.

Thanks!

Thanks for the confirmation. I'll dig deeper then.
post #73 of 318
I have another issue....wonder if anyone encountered this. I have my dishnetwork receiver connect to HDMI 1, a HTPC connected to HDMI 2, and an over the air antenna. This has happened 2 times now...when i turned on the TV, both HDMI 1 and 2 are showing me blank screen although my DN receiver and my HTPC are on. Over the air antenna is working fine. When I unplugged my HDMI cable from my HTPC and then plug back in, everything is back in business again for both HTPC and DN receiver. I don't think this is a norm having the need to unplug and then plug back in the HDMI cable. Do I have a defect? This problem doesn't happen every time I turn on the TV.

try reversing the order you start the devices. turn the Display on last . It seems to be a handshake issue
post #75 of 318
I got my LC-60LE745U yesterday and set it up. The 60" is actually pretty light and manageable - I was able to lift it out of the box, attach the stand, and set it on my console by myself - just FYI in case that would be an issue to some (no doubt the 70" is another story.) I'm coming from a 60" LCOS RPTV - a Sony KDS-60A3000, and though I have a Vizio 32" LCD in my home, I was blown away by the brightness, depth of color, clarity, and resolution of this TV. I have not had time to calibrate it yet other than turning off all the motion enhancement settings and toning down the brightness and contrast a little bit.

Regardless, I am very impressed with the TV. The black levels are significantly better than I was anticipating. I watched Tron on Blu-ray and 1080P, LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring and Rio at 720p over AppleTV as well as some Thursday night TV (serial dramas and Sports) over my DirecTV at 1080i and 720p. Everything looked amazing - almost 3D from the color depth. I probably have the brightness cranked a little more than I should (although I turned it down significantly from default) but it just looks so impressive compared to my RPTV. I saw no DSE that others have talked about, and a very minor amount of the "clouding" on a completely black screen - which I think is more due to how high the backlight/brightness setting is right now. Nothing noticeable, though in any programming that I watched. Didn't notice any motion blur when watching sports or any other programming, so that won't be an issue for me. I don't have the 3D glasses yet, so I can't speak to its 3D performance, though I'm sure it's impressive.

As far as functionality goes, it works pretty well. The menus are a little clunky and the fonts are small, so they could be somewhat hard to read from my seating position. I like that the what you are watching remains visible while perusing the menus (not the case with my Sony). I also love that the HDMI-CEC (Aquos Link) works perfectly with all my other gear (Bravia Link) which I actually was not anticipating and was a nice surprise. I haven't delved into the internet apps much yet, but 2 observations come to mind. 1) I wish you could log into Youtube to pull in your playlists and personal videos. I have this on my AppleTV, so this TV will not supplant the ATV as a Youtube device. 2) I wish Amazon VOD was available - I have this on my Sony Blu-ray player, so this also isn't as much of an issue, but something to note for others who want this.

Overall, though, I am extremely pleased and highly recommend this TV.

Thanks Fastsplappy! I "think" i solved the handshake issue between the TV and my HTPC. I ended up installed a program called HdmiOn.exe. it would wake up the port. I have tried it a couple of times, it seems to be working okay.

I know I was one of the first to post here that I had the set on pre-order, sorry I have not posted any updates. I did in fact get the TV that Saturday and have had a few issues. Did not want to post till everything was sorted out. My first set had what almost appeared to be a triangular shadow on bottom center of the screen. It was about the size of a fist and only noticeable on a solid color background. There was also some clouding, but I wasn't as concerned with it as the shadow. My local retailer replaced it with a second unit, which had no clouding or strange shadows. However it had 3 stuck pixels and what looked like a line on the lower left hand corner. Almost like a hair was stuck between the screen and the backlight. Needless to say it was exchanged for a THIRD unit, which I am happy to report is perfect so far. Ran a plasma burn-in disc and did not spot any dead/stuck pixels or screen uniformity issues. Now I can get down to playing with the settings.

I am coming from a 65" VT25 Panasonic plasma (buzzing issues), and while the image is brighter and more vibrant, the motion is definitely not as smooth. However LCDs have less motion resolution than plasmas from what I understand, so it is to be expected. I haven't played with any of the special motion features, so hopefully turning them on/off will tame it down.

I bought the 60C7450U model from Fry's over the weekend. It does have the Aquomotion 240 feature. It did come with a manual. I also cannot find any info online for that model #. I first thought it was the "fake" model # such as is used by Sam's, Costco; but I wonder if the Aquomotion 240 has something to do with it?

I think I am going to like it, as this is my first HDTV that is not DLP. However, like others here have posted, I'd like to see someone's calibration settings. My DLP did not have as many settings as this one. I knew it was going to be set for that "soap opera mode" like all TVs. I just want films to look like film. The Blu-ray of Citizen Kane looks like a live B/W telecast.
post #79 of 318
do you guys think 745U (edge) is better when compared to 735U (full array)? contrast? image quality?

Not enough info yet to decide if that is true, but there are some issues with the edge lighted units being cloudy

Sadly, I returned my LC-70LE745U for that very reason on Sunday.

I keep hearing that !

& the 2011 full array back lighted 70"ers are getting harder to find as every day goes by ....
post #83 of 318
I have one of these on the way. I'm staying positive that it will be without clouds or flashlights. I'll let you know.
post #84 of 318
I bought a 60le745u from Pauls a few days ago. Pix looks fine, no sig flashlighting or clouding. Some DSE which I have not been able to adjust away yet. Anxious for some settings if someone has any. Waiting for glasses to try out the 3d. Definitely pleased with the tv, sig improvement over my old Samsung DLP.
post #85 of 318
Mine is coming from Paul's also. It's the 70". I didn't get any glasses yet because I want to make sure I like it first. 3d is just a bonus anyways, I can live without it. How bad would you say the DSE is?
post #86 of 318
not too bad and I think it is not a prob to eliminate with the proper settings. I may have to get a calibration disk.

I wouldn't worry about it, my first 745u unit had some clouding, my second two did not. I am pleasantly surprised with the uniformity of these screens, better than most LCDs I have had. I find the array lit LEDs to have more issues with uniformity than the edgelit, however arrays do have better viewing angles. You pick your poison....lol.
post #88 of 318
Anyone mount their 70” yet? I’m looking at getting the AVF ZL8600-A mount and adding spacers (mount is only 12.25mm deep). Are the screws 8M or 6M? Depth of mounting holes? Would like to have mount/parts ready before TV is in. Thanks.
post #89 of 318
I ordered mine from Abes of Maine, the 7450u units I saw at Frys and Video Only looked pretty good for uniformity and viewing angles, I was hard pressed to see much of a difference between them and the 735u, I went to a lot of places and looked at the 735u, Almost all of them had dark corners, 2 of the sets had such an issue that even on normal content it was distracting, only one of like 9 display units looked good. Add to that the cost savings, and the fact that I really like the way the new 745u set's look and I went ahead and ordered *crosses fingers* I hope the one I get is as good as the displays I saw.
