The lowest clearance price was a couple thousand less than that even.


FWIW, periods are your friend...

I don't want to gloat about it, but the price I paid is in the thread somewhere.
I asked the opinion of fellow members and you were the first to respond affirmatively.
You were also asking for the location, in case I didn't want it...forgot already? smile.gif

Btw, If you're willing to take the risk on an item that's not from an authorized dealer, that's your prerogative.
But what if you bit on a deal that "fell off a truck", and then have trouble with it shortly thereafter?

Caveat emptor and all that, but it would more than likely create tension on the forum.

Defeats the objective of being friendly and trying to help each other out.

Sure, there will be "grey" market deals available that end up being legitimate. But you roll the dice on those and hope you win.

Personally, I would rather avoid the headaches and anxiety that come with that type of transaction.

To each his own, and hopefully we all end up with Home Theater bliss!

'Got those coming for next week...
Here's my review:

The most fun you can have from a face hugger without that thing down your throat.

But seriously, these were everything I was hoping for; sleek and polished, with truly lightweight design (not just light-ish or tolerable-for-ten-minutes like most others.) Quality OEM-like design/materials/comfort. They don't quite rival passive glasses, but, are the closest anyone has come IMHO. Optics are spot on.

With these next gen specs Xpand is seeming to say, 'Hey, we're a 'real' 3D glasses company who know what the hell we're doing.'

It shows.

Yes, outside of Dallas. Did Conns have a good price on it? Curious if people have had success with some of those dealers advertising it for around $6k too.

That 24-hour BB $5999 deal wound up being the deal-of-all-deals for sure. Brand new, in box, full warranty, not a display unit, not anything, besides a perfectly normal stock 90" that had been selling in store for $8995 the day before...

Thank god I hopped on it that morning, NFL Sundays have never been this fun with friends.

And for me, it's simply not possible to recreate that particular experience on a similarly-priced (or higher) PJ, due to the light issues of most games being shown during the day. No PJ on the market at reasonable sub-$20k pricing has the calibrated-lumens necessary to throw out a properly bright image with every window in the room open.

salesmen always claim that a PJ is best but for all around use , in a normal living room with friends & family with normal light levels a huge display ROCKS smile.gif
nothing can replace the atmosphere of a bunch of people watching a football game in the daytime with a nice display , a dimly lit room removes the personal eye contact between people sharing intense moments .
A Huge display gives you both a theater feel with movies lights dimmed & the sports bar / party feel with the lights up , best of both worlds . a PJ can never replace them , while only some people can have a dedicated heater room with a PJ , everyone can have a huge display in their house .
While I'd myself would love to up-grade my 80" 632 to the new 90" that is not justifiable to me right now that's a bunch $$ for 10" diagonally over what I got now , if it was 4K it be on the wall right now at that price . If I didn't already have a 632 80" then Yes I'd buy a 90" right now then as well , the 632 80" will work till there's a huge 4K .
my 632 is dialed in , I have a great processor & my PQ is stellar .
That HQV & Marvel dual processor works fabulous with these Jumbo Sharp displays biggrin.gif

While I agree that a similarly priced projection system wouldn't compare, You could find one that would for quite a bit less than $20k.

Anyone else have this screen defect? I sent Sharp the pics and they said it is within their 'whatever' and they would not fix it. So, I asked about the orange on white pics and they said that there is nothing in their notes about orange lines. So, then I sent them only the shots with the orange. They should be getting back to me in a few days.

Wow those pics sux they better be coming to look that tv over

The side banding appears to be inherent on this particular tv.

Just on the edges coming into the screen about 2" or so, more noticeable on a pure white screen.

Hardly noticeable during actual program viewing when colors are constantly changing, but you do know it's there when a white background appears.

As for the orange shots, haven't seen that before, is your tv calibrated personally or professionally?

What I did when I first got the tv was to massage the screen slightly with a clean microfiber cloth, to get any dust or residue off and hopefully even out the lcd layer behind the glass.

Not too much pressure at all during the "wax on, wax off"...just enough to feel a slight flex in the screen and then move on.

Probably doesn't do anything, a la "placebo effect", but it eased my mind to know that I did what I could to clean it of any debris and "stuck" areas.

Disclaimer: I'm not liable for anything you do to your tv based on what I've posted. It's only my experience with my tv.

Good luck!
post #1337 of 1357
The TV was ISF calibrated. The guy said there's no magic he could do for me. Thanks for the feedback guys. I'll post when I hear from Sharp.
post #1338 of 1357
I think the problem is that as a consumer, we all have different levels of expectations of the items we buy. You spent a hefty amount and have expectations that are not being met. Sharp has an obligation to satisfy you. If it is "normal" performance to them, but unsatisfactory to you, they either need to make YOU happy by fixing, replacing, or refunding your money. I cannot say I agree with your opinion, BUT that is purely because I didn't spend my own money. I am pretty sure I would be much more critical if it were my cash.
BEST of luck to you on getting this resolved to your liking.

Just watched Star Trek Into Darkness 3D Blu-Ray.

With an appropriate surround sound system, literally earth-shaking!

Story was a little ho-hum, but visual effects were good, and the soundtrack definitely kept me awake.

Also saw Warrior for the first time over the weekend.

Great "Rocky-like" storyline modernized by using MMA, an awesome, yet brutal up and coming sport.

Ending was lacking somewhat for me, but perhaps the writers got tired of being creative at that point.

Still worth a rental, if you're into underdog movies.

Any other movies/shows my fellow owners have seen lately on their 90"s that merit a look?

So I heard back from Sharp and they are going to replace my TV. This Aquos Advantage is the real deal IMHO - not just some corporate BS. Fast, professional response, pic submissions of the problem, weekend/night phone hours. Impressed. Of course, if it didn't go my way...

That is great, good work. Proof that if you take the time to document and drill down to the true issue the odds are in your favor when it comes to these disputes. Nice job.

Thx. They are looking for another LC90LE742U, but, I don't think they will find one. I hear there are a few of the new models lying around...wink.gif

That's great news that they're honoring the warranty for the orange banding issue you presented.

Did they happen to mention anything about the side banding as well? Or is that still classified as a normal operating effect of the tv?

I asked on the 657 thread about the issue, since one owner mentioned he was offered a replacement due to the irregularity.

Just want to get my options in order, in case I do decide to make a warranty claim.

If the banding is inherent to all the 90" panels, then I'll probably just hang onto mine since everything else is working as expected.

Highly unlikely you'll get another 745, unless it's a refurb, since the 657's are out in full force now.

But maybe you'd rather have the 657 since it's the newer model anyways.

Side banding? Do you mean the vertical dark area on green pic?
post #1349 of 1357

I am very close to ordering a Sharp LC-90LE657.   I seem to be at a precipice of wanting it all and having to compromise (see thread here).

post #1350 of 1357
No luck yet....anyone care to share their experiences? Thanks!

Is the warranty covered from a place like East Coast TVs?
