Exactly what are you trying to say??? As far as I know, Sharp screens are no more sensitive to people touching them than any other tv screen would be.

Uhh, if it is "Sharp", it is easier to get cut. wink.gif

You guys must have had your sarcasm filters enabled smile.gif

On another note... do any of you guys have your Sharp's plugged into a power conditioner? I just picked up a Belkin PureAV PF60 to plug my gear into since I am replacing my AV rack with something sexier that sits under my TV instead of beside it. I've read that using a "phase 6 electrical noise filter" can improve image quality on a TV, but I haven't tried it yet. I was just curious of anyone has had any favorable (or unfavorable) experiences with this combination.

Since plugging my Sharp into the power conditioner, the PQ has been great... except that the PQ has always been pretty great. Wish I could see a side-by-side comparison to look for differences. I'm content enough knowing the TV has some serious surge protection now regardless.

Funny you mention expensive cables... I have been wondering why anyone in their right mind would spend $10k+ for a *power* cable that plugs into a wall outlet, and then into the back of some AV device. Considering the thinly insulated 14/2 power lines running through the walls, this seems a bit strange to me. It's rather entertaining to look through some "high end" AV web stores at their cable prices. I can understand spending a few hundred $ (not thousand!-- came across some speaker wires that sell for $25k) on speaker wire, but power cables? Guess there are suckers born every minute. tongue.gif

I bought a power conditioner/surge protector (not a UPS) for the TV, BD, and AVR and I thought it looked sharper. But then I thought, that makes no sense. It must be my imagination. How could the conditioner make it look cleaner? I have since become convinced that it's all in my mind.

It is called "The Placebo Effect"

Curious if anybody has experienced panel brightness problems. I have the 70c8470 (Costco model) and the brightness is very poor, to the point where it is actually unwatchable in a sunny room. Seems to be plasma or lower levels of brightness. Brightness and backlight settings are both medium, as black levels are unacceptable otherwise and the brightness does not seem to improve much if any by turning them up. Contrast is set high.

This particular set is going back for flashlighting/clouding issues, but I am trying to decide whether to exchange or to dump Sharp all together and get a Samsung/Panasonic. Here is a totally unscientific photo, but a good example of what I'm talking about, compared against an old Samsung LCD on standard settings.

post #1303 of 2660
Do you have any suggestions about why I can't get the internet to connect? 20' from my router and 2 signal bars. What was the firmware I see in previous posts?

Thanks.
post #1304 of 2660
Download and install firmware with USB flash drive.

Here is a same-source comparison:

post #1306 of 2660
I have been looking at the Sharp LC-60C8470U from Costco and the Sharp LC-60LE847U from a local electronics retailer. Not sure what the differences are except the Costco set includes 2 pair of 3D glasses.
This set would replace my Sony SXRD 50A-2000 rear projection set that is still working great, just want to move to a larger set.

Has anyone replaced one of Sony's SXRD sets with either of these Sharp models and if so how did the picture compare.

Thanks
Frank

I have two of the Samsung 7 series LED TVs, a 52" Sony Bravia, and now this one. I'm very happy with the brightness and the color. I do wish it had the POP and WOW of the Samsungs but I have to admit that I leave my Samsungs a little over saturated because it's just so pretty! You are not going to get this looking like the Sammy. On the other hand, I've looked at the 65" Samsungs and it's got the same brightness and sharpness of the Sharp, IMHO. Some of it might be the size, I don't know. I do know that putting a 36" samsung next to a 70" Sharp is going to be disappointing.

Just got my 70le847 for a great price. New store opened in town and they said they match any price. Found a website listing it for $ 2,345. They matched it!!

So far I really enjoy this set. Still spending time setting up my Home Theater setup and tweeking the set, but very happy to have it

I have a certified isf coming out to calibrate it.

I have a question which may seem odd. I am curious if someone can tell me the size of the bolts used to mount on the wall? The reason I ask is I want to use a little longer bolt to act has a shelf to hold my flouresant light I have to bounce off the back wall.

My set has that software version, unfortunately.

Not to kidnap your question, but I thought I read that there might be a "break-in" period for the TV. This is before the actual professional ISF calibration should take place. If anybody has confirmation for that, it might be interesting to read.
I am enjoying my LC-60LE845U of 5 weeks. I am noticing that the picture is getting "better" with even this short of age. A more crisper picture. Even the commercials look lifelike.
What did your ISF technician say about break in period?
Thanks for letting me ride your post.

Yes, I was noticing that too. I thought it was just in my mind.

I am currently debating buying this TV with a slim wall mount from monoprice. Has anyone bought from Fassie before? They have it for $2577, Costco is $3171 after tax but I can get a 5 year warranty for $100 more from costco and can return it for 90 days if there is a problem. Tough choice. I love Costco, but saving $600 is hard to pass up.

well I finally pulled the trigger and brought the 60" home yesterday, as I already had one mounted on the wall I just had to take it down and put this one up. I did find it odd that the top mounting holes stick out from the TV about a half inch or so and the bottom ones are flush with the tv. Had to use 1/2 inch spacers on the bottom to match the top. It looks great on the wall!

I got 2 pairs of glass's and a BD player thrown in also:). So far I am pretty impressed with the TV, I tested black screens and have almost ZERO clouding:D so I feel pretty lucky there. I watched Battleship last night on Blu Ray and it looked great but I did notice some SOE so hopefully with all the great settings on here I can adjust that out, if I can then I think its a keeper as I saw no flashlighting or clouding. I know someone posted in this thread about where to get glass's that will work alot cheaper, these sharp glass's are $100 each..ouch! and I need 2 more pair. I picked up transformers dar of the moon in 3D and hopefully I can get time to check it out today.

Planning on spending most of the day tweaking it. I looked at several others and honestly in the 60" range and the price I dont think there is a better option out there. If anyone has the info on the cheaper glass's post up the link please. I will report back after some adjustments have been made.

I just purchased one as well, looks like the same HHGregg deal I got... $2100 out the door TV, 5-Year Warranty, 3D DVD Player and Glasses... Ive been playing around with the calibration and I think I almost have it. As far as the clouding goes... NONE... I am Extremely pleased with this TV. When I get my final calibration numbers I will post them. BTW, this forum is great...

The bottom section of the TV is thicker than the top. The surfaces are level on mine. Look at the profile drawing in the manual to see.

Ok need some help here. I cannot get my PS3 to play a 3-d movie. I updated the firmware so thats not it. what am I doing wrong? also when you select 3d on the remote do you pick side by side or top to bottom? it confusing.

I'm dying to watch this 3d movie and just cant make it work. I am also using all 1.4 high speed hdmi cables. when the movie comes on it just sticks on the screen that says its 3-d and you need a 3-d compatabile equip?
post #1318 of 2660
PS3 instructions here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_4DQCoX_zY
On your TV: Menu, System Options, 3D Setup, Mode 2. Then your TV will automatically switch to 3D mode without asking side to side or top to bottom.

post #1320 of 2660
I think the problem is not with my PS3 but rather my Onkyo 705 AVR...bummer. I think it's only 1.3. Guess when it comes to 3d I'll be using optical cable from sharp Blu Ray player. Problem is it only puts out 2 ch so no rear surround.....Not dropping $1,000 right now for a NEW AVR when this one works great and we wont be watching that many 3d movies anyway..
