Official Sharp AQUOS LC-60LE847U & LC-70LE847U Owners Thread - Page 5

Reputable vendor. Not his fault. The carrier damaged it. Bill was noted with damage description by driver and noted as rejected by us both. We both took photos and called our respective responsible parties. My vendor said he would get a replacement out yet today. I sent all my photos to him as backup if he needs to fight with the insurance. The carton was punctured at the location of the screen damage, so there should be no fight.

Sorry to hear that. Hope your replacement gets there as fast as it can.

Do you know how it was shipped? I'm picking mine up tomorrow and I've heard I should keep it vertical. However the sales person and manger at hhgregg said it would be fine to laying down flat.
post #124 of 2660
It was sitting as pictured, but strapped securely to a large pallet and stretch wrapped. It was 25' back in a 53' trailer with a mixed load. Probably made ten stops with ten different people moving materials in and out.

I'd get that statement in writing .
Up right is the only way to safely transport that large of a display . You been warned ...
I really must say that it's better in the long run to have a display delivered, there is NO risk to YOU involved by having a delivery.
The shipper takes all the risks on delivery,

Transporting yourself you assume ALL the risks .

Large glass panels break very easily when transported horizontally.

Also be aware that the screen looked perfect until powered up. The was absolutely no evidence of damage with the power disconnected.
post #127 of 2660
so no one else with a 60" version is having clouding/flashlighting issues in a pitch black room besides me? during the day you can't see the clouding, but at night it's bothering me more and more. I'm debating on whether to exchange the set if mine is the only one...

The ip control works great on the TV though. The only thing missing is two-way communications so if someone manually turns the TV on, the computer knows...

Picked up the LC-60C8470U (Note the C and extra 0) at Costco today. I believe this TV is Costco's model for the LC-60LE847U, and not sure I can confirm any difference though I do have a menu option for AquaMotion 480 which I'm not sure is in others? Anyone able to confirm?

I returned a display model LC-60LE633U, couldn't stand the grey clouds during white panning scenes (like watching ice hockey) and the horrible red push. So far, out of the box, this TV's colors are WAY better than the lower end Sharp Aquos line.

I do have one issue so far, the audio stops working when moving around different channels and such in Comcast. It's not the STB, I can get the audio to come back by forcing a firmware update (even though there is no new), and possibly changing the input. This needs to be fixed via firmware update/setting for me to keep the TV.

Some other notes:

* I still can't stand any of the motion enhancement / SOE, Game Mode makes it look normal.

* I do see a minor amount edge lighting inconsistency on full white screens near the edges, but it's very minimal and tolerable compared to the last model I had. There are not specific dim areas in the center as before.

* 3D seems cool, had to call Comcast to enable the 2 channels and set TV to mode 2 to auto change to 3D.

* IP control is included with this Costco model, and Mike's Remote on iTunes works well for basic control from my iPhone.

* two 3D glasses are included, but does not include charger?
post #129 of 2660
Do you see "AquaMotion480" or "240Hz" in the motion enhancement menu?
post #130 of 2660
Picked my 70" up today from hhgregg. Hung it on the wall with a Sanus 27-84" mount from Parts Express. So far I'm really impressed with this set. No pq issue in a lower light room. Everything looks really good to me. Watching Apollo 18 on blue ray and blacks are very dark. I will post some pictures once it gets dark outside to see if I see any clouding or flashlighting.
post #131 of 2660
Awesome! Please report on back light clouding! If the 70" version has a sturdier frame or something, I can see how less flex would mean less clouding compared to my 60". I even removed mine from the wall and used the stand to reduce flex, still has the clouds (visible in a dark room)...

The only other TV I was thinking about trying (if I don't buy another LC-60LE847U) is the Panasonic ST50 that's out now. However, so far Panasonic will not provide me any information on IP control. The Sharp has a very fast reaction time to my home automation server's ip requests and Sharp publishes the protocol in the manual! Panasonic wants users to sign an NDA just for the RS232 codes for the VT30 -what a joke!

The high frequency noise issue with some of Panasonic's plasmas and past fbr issues makes me want to stay with the 847u. I was thinking about the Samsung E8000 plasma too, but then saw that folks with D7000 and D8000 panels had screens that were peeling and Samsung will not recall them. I guess there is no perfect consumer priced display right now (except for projectors)?!?!
post #132 of 2660
Nice package deal to get the 3D glasses. These are not normally included.

Forgot to mention, you charge the glasses with a mini USB cable going to your PC or to the TV.

Please keep us posted on clouding as it gets dark outside

In my LC-60C8470U I have Motion Enhancement options (yes Aquo not Aqua):

AquoMotion480
AquoMotion240
120Hz High
120Hz Low
Off

...and all I like is Off, though I think I'm getting a little flickering on certain colors when in game mode, still playing with settings.
post #134 of 2660
Does the "motion enhancement" show up when you're watching 3D? This option was grayed out for me when I watched Hugo last night.

My 70le847u from hhgregg does not have 480 aqua motion setting. It does have 240hz.

Side note: the sharp remote is causing some issues with my Samsung smt-h3270 HD DVR box from time warner. Pressing buttons on sharp remote causes commands to be executed on Samsung box.

ETC. I have a 70" and the clouding is about the same as yours on mine as well. I will try to take pictures and post them, but that is the only minor flaw that I have with this set so far. Everything else looks fantastic.
post #137 of 2660
EnterTheSwamp: Yeah, I figured my clouding was normal. Thanks, this saves me a lot of hassle doing an exchange!

sharpdressedman: My LC-60LE847u shows 240Hz and not Aquomotion480. I'm not sure which is better and no one has tested the true refresh rates yet.

Logitech and Pronto used to make affordable RF remote kits that would solve your issues (they have an RF base that you attach emitters to and glue these on the front of each device). Maybe you can find a kit on ebay?

The RF remote I use is the MX-900, which is a little more. I use it only because I can send RS232 commands to my home automation system by pairing the RF remote with the MSC-400 controller (bought separately of course). This works well as you can make custom soft buttons such as Goodnight that can turn off all TVs and lights, arm system and dim my bedroom lights for night time, etc... Of course, the MX-900 can do IR commands too, so it's pretty versatile.

I am also in the market to get a new large screen tv, and I had my mind set on getting the 70le733 non 3d model. Our local Bj's had them, but only has a floor model available now. They are now stocking the following as stated eariler in this post LC-70C847U0. I assume this is the same as the le847U model and is a current upgrade to the 735/734/733 series (70 inch). I didn't really want the 3d, but the price doesn't seem to much more than the non-3d model.

I need a new tv soon as my old 56 inch samsung dlp has bit the dust.

I was able to take some pictures in a dark room last night. I can't see any flash lighting and the clouding is very minimal. My camera on my DROID razr couldn't even pick it up.

The off angle viewing is decent in my opinion too.

Let me know if anyone would like me to check something else.

It's nice of you to take the pictures but using a camera phone to capture screen uniformity
doesn't work real well...but thanks again.
post #141 of 2660
Yep understand about the camera phone ill try to get something with a better quality camera on a tripod. First night with my tv and I love it! Setting up dlna network was really easy and works well with windows media center. My only complaint is that the browser does not support flash. But then again most TVs do not. If anybody knows a good work around please let me know. I'll probably just get Google TV sometime in the future.
post #142 of 2660
I think the backlighting looks good on your 70" model! What was the backlight setting set to when you took the pics?
post #143 of 2660
topr:
With respect to low light conditions and not wanting flash, I'd think a cell phone's camera sensor is well suited as that's the environment it was designed for.

I haven't bought a camera in many years, but I know it would be difficult to capture the 2% near black level I did in my shots with any camera I have, but the Nexus S 4G did an excellent job for me and all I did was point and shoot!

I understand that a cell phone's sensor maybe smaller so it may not capture as much light. However, when a conventional camera needs a tripod and my cell phone doesn't, which do you think would capture motion better in a dark room?

Also, look at all the engineering Sony is putting into cell phones:

+3 in standard mode.

If you could post some better pictures later that would be great, these are the first actual pictures I have been able to find of the TV in use in the last 2 weeks I've been searching, I'm trying to figure out whether to pull the trigger or not on this TV.
post #147 of 2660
Checked out the 847 at HH gregg last night, didnt play with it alot but it looked really good. The salesman was salavating to sell it to me, I'll give it a week or 2 and see what else I can get thrown in, I need 5 pairs of glass's.

Was also waiting on some more people to get these in home and see what issues arise...if any
post #148 of 2660
With Costco, glasses and usb cable included. You first leave the panel off, connect the cable to glasses and rear top output on panel, then turn panel on. And yes (lol) AquoMotion not AquaMotion. These are newer models than the Elites, would love to read about a comparison between them.

umm, ok...I guess. The purpose of the post was just to let sharpdressedman know, although appreciated, that it's difficult to evaluate his display from the pictures taken...it wasn't to start a debate over the pros and cons of the camera phone as I don't really care.
post #150 of 2660
"It's nice of you to" make useless comments (once again)..."but thanks again" as "I really don't care." :P
