Just ask Apple and Bose how to do it.

Just picked up the 60" from Costco. I come from a Runco 50" plasma, so the picture will take some time to get used to. looking from the sides, no more of-axis viewing problems. I can't stand the "soap opera" settings, so leave that off. Had to turn down the color, and I can only watch in normal, not dynamic mode. Watching 3D form HBO is fun, but for some reason when watching HBO 3d, all remotes do not work, I can't pause the movie. I have to change inputs, then go back from beginning. I have to get some 3D blu-ray movies. Oh, and a ton of apps, but my Sony 590 has a ton of apps also. I hate redundancy. Why are monitors and source players always offering the same apps?

Dealers are required to "list" at this price, not sell. However in the Bose case that is quite different. No dealer can sell below 10% off or they no longer get the good intensives.

Sure, but it looks like another newish 60" sharp. Not to heavy either. I was able to take it out of box an walk 2 flights of stairs in my house. **** news flash**** new software update of this afternoon. My model is the LC-608470OU.

How is the pic quality? screen uniformity? contrast? dark corners?

Sure, went right over my head.. When adjusted right the PQ is outstanding for someone coming over from a Runco plasma. For me Aquamotion 240 is just right, and I prefer as little dynamic anything off. The screen uniformity is excellent with no visable off axis degradation. I watched several HBO 3D movies, but when I rented Tin-Tin in 3D, it was unwatchable. The moving parts and figures had a awful trailing effect. I watched Furios Five in blu-ray as happy as a clam. Once again, set to Aquamotion 240, the action shots were crisp, clear and looked like I was sitting in a movie theater. I would highly recommend some pro. calibration, to bring out all this monitor offers.

So you are saying the 3D was only decent with Aqua 240?

Thanks for the reply. One more question. You mention you are coming from Runco Plasma. Are you saying the black levels on 847U are deeper and better than your plasma? If you had to pick between Panasonic VT50 or LC-70LE847U, which one would you pick? Panasonic VT50 is suppose to have really deep black levels.

Thanks

Very good question. I need more time, which suggests, LCD black levels have greatly improved. And, there is a nice amount of calibration options to suit one's personal tastes.
post #43 of 2660
I cannot fathom how an edgle lit LED can compete with plasam black levels. Photons are not carbon ions

The local dimming of the Elite is so damn impressive it can compete - without full-arrray backlit+local dimming nothing comes close or beats the black of the VT30 or D series Samsungs.

I'm not sold on the local dimming issue ,for what those units cost Vs what I have now ...Hmmmm
but I'm happy with the blacks on the 632 80" with Suzook's settings I get deep blacks that are Not crushed & get a brighter image , add in the 80" size factor , the 632 80" costs outta US Appliance , add all that up in trade-offs for & against Local Dimming . For Me, I made a good choice, that I do not regret .

But what Floats my Boat might Not blow your Dress Up

I'm glad that there is choices, trade-offs

As much as I really like this Sharp 60", I just found out this afternoon, Runco surprised me, and is sending me a new processor ($10,000) under warranty (their customer service has shocked me on terms of excellence, they make Oppo appear like a Chevy dealership). So, goodbye to 3D and honestly, a great eye opening experience. Sharp has really surprised me with their quality. In fact I was just watching Rango on Sharp's Netflix app, and it had a 4 star goose bump factor.

So are you returning your Sharp? It would be nice if you can compare your Sharp with your Runco Plasma and give us some feedback

In many ways, the Sharp has far exceeded my expectations on modern LCDs. In fact, while just watching Rango on the Sharp's Netfix app, the experience was stunning, and in many ways better than my Runco. In regards to Rango, I loved the vividness and vibrancy along with the fine resolution the Sharp brought the table. In some other movies, not so much. But, I am sure with the right calibration, that would be resolved. I find with the Runco, I enjoy more movies as a whole. But with the Sharp, most animation brought heavy goose bumps.

Modern LCD's do excel when it comes to cgi animation, no doubt about it.

I just received my 847 on the 5th. We're movin up from an RCA 52" rear proj, so it's easy for me to be impressed. Picture is amazing with stupid, crazy detail. So far I have OSD on not displayed. Picture mode on auto.

The 847 is the '12 model of last year's 835. We ordered an 835 at the beginning of March, waited, and they said it would ship Apr 5. It arrived on the 5th and surprise an 847 instead!

If anyone finds best settings or setups, please let me know.
post #50 of 2660
So, how is the screen uniformity for all gray or all white pictures? Are the flash-lighting and DSE issues fixed that were present on the LC-60LE835?

Also, why is the new version thicker than the 835?

How good is the sound with the built in sub?

I plan on using Google TV a lot to search the web, but I'm concerned about uniformity when viewing web pages with white backgrounds.

I'm not looking for perfection, but the splotchiness of the LC-70LE735u really bothered me (and it's back-lighting is done by an LED array). The issue was only noticeable on white or gray screens; however, the Sharp was far worse than my 2008 Samsung TV that had a fluorescent back light. The 735 was far superior otherwise and I was really pleased with the picture except for gray/white scenes.
post #51 of 2660
Neat. I was browsing the Sharp 847 manual and found the attached commands. It seems that all remote keys are now implemented under IP control: how awesome!

This would appear to mean you can control whatever is connected to the Sharp via the Sharps network cable like this:
Sharp IP command remote key pause rcvd over network -> pause command sent using HDMI-CEC to selected source -> selected source responds if HDMI-CEC is implemented on source device.

I'm not sure if these commands will work on the 735 as I just returned it today... I know none of these were listed in the older LC-70LE735 manual. The 83x and 73x are so 2011 (or more like 2005) when it comes to IP Control apparently!

I just finished watching "Immortals". I might keep the Sharp and sell the Runco. Unfreeking believable. With regular real people movies, then the Runco, but any form of animation and/or performance capture technology is simply stunning.
post #53 of 2660
Ok, you finally talked me into buying one! Just pulled the trigger on an HHGregg web/instore pickup Easter deal. They are closed for Easter I think, but I'll be leaving work early on Monday to pick one up

I did some looking today at the LC-70LE847 when I was at HHGregg doing the return on the 70" 735. It wasn't perfectly uniform on a white screen, but I could live with it over the splotchy patches that the 735 had. HHGregg didn't have the LC-60LE847 on display yet, hence all of my questions.

To be fair to the 735 series, my wife said the 70" 735u looked too big over the fire place which it did; that's the main reason I returned it. 60" is the largest she's letting me buy

So you can adjust the Sharp so it doesn't have the SOE (soap opera effect)? I'm coming from a plasma and I can't stand the SOE. If no SOE and motion blur or judder?

Thanks,

post #57 of 2660
I got a chance to play with the newly unboxed tv at the store and the SOE is default. I had to go in and disable a lot of stuff to get rid of it.

This tv is native 240 hz. Is SOE something that comes with 240 Hz?

I was told by the sales guy things like screen uniformity, clouding, SOE, bad viewing angles are LED thing and no matter what set I buy, there is a high probability i will encounter them. I went in thinking of buying 847U but now I am debating if i should just get Panasonic VT30 or wait for VT50.

Compared to VT30, 847U is extremely bright but they keep all tv's in store in vivid mode due to all the lights surrounding them.

1st don't listen to the sales guy ....the SOE is easily removed by turning off the default settings
post #59 of 2660
The Sharp has a feature to turn off motion enhancement according to the manual... it also states that motion enhancement is not available in Game and PC mode.

I'm going to assume that turning off "motion enhancement" will eliminate the SOE? This was true on the 735 I returned.

The calibration reports I read on the VT30 indicate that its brightness is extremely limited (like 28 FtL Max) and the energy ratings are total fabrications.
