Well this particular store was running the Avatar blu ray, the salesman and two other customers agreed it was very grainy, it was in Movie mode. The first thing the salesman said was "stand way back here". wink.gif

My local Best Buy had one installed in one of their Magnolia theater rooms.

I asked for a demo but the salesman said he couldn't because after it was installed they discovered "the screen was defective".

He wouldn't power it up so I didn't see the "defect". Couldn't see any obvious physical cracks.

I was one of the early adopters on the 80, and I am still LOVING it. I did promise my husband that I'd wait until there was a 15 inch increase before I bought a new one, so I may be stuck waiting for the 100!

Bkbaueraz good for you. It might be awhile before a 100 comes out but you never know smile.gif

Well we know the limit on TV's will be about 120". Anything bigger than that and you won't be able to get it through the front door.

I hear you. That surprises me a bit tho as I really felt it was not an issue on the one I saw.smile.gif

On another subject, I wonder what is going to happen with the LC-90LE745U pricing or with the LC-90LE745U itself short/long term? There doesn't seem to be much interrest for this TV, even here, among entusiasts!eek.gif Nobody seems to have one on order... In the past, for all the sets that had caught my interrest, there were at least one or two guys that had those sets on order. This goes to show that this TV is priced way too high for the average picture quality it has. That high price may be justified from Sharp point of view but it seems that it's not from ours...

Probably because most jumped in and bought the 80", for me I purchased 844u and happy with my purchase. I have my Sony front projector for 134" movie viewing for anything other than normal TV viewing.
post #249 of 1357
With the price/performance of the 80", it is really hard to justify the price of the 90". Even if it has 26% more viewing area than the 80". Also, you have the possibility of a 90" Elite with local dimming like the Sharp Professional signage panel they showed, that may be holding some off from purchasing. Finally, for some the picture may be a little soft for a 1080p signal at this size and may require 4K resolution to get them to drop that amount of money.
In all likely hood this set will have to be down to around 6.5-7.5K before they start to see any amount of reasonable sales.
post #250 of 1357
Coming from an owner of a 70" Elite I look at it like this:

Sure the 90" has the clear size advantage but for less than 2/3 of the price (if u know where to look) you can own the 70" Elite. If I am in the store comparing TV's right now I would take the 70" elite over this set any day of the week. And save almost 4k doing so. Whereas at least the current 80" models are very intriguing because of their price point clearly below the 70" elite.

Now if they do introduce a local dimming set or an elite version that may be a different story. But for now unless "you just have to have to biggest" and picture quality is not top priority this set seems way overpriced.

I'm a bit surprised that some very seasoned and well respected members of this forum place much value on store set up PQ. I first saw the 80" 632U at HHgregg and it looked horrible. A very grainy picture. They were showcasing the 844 so I assumed they wanted there to be no comparison between the two. From all the fine reviews of forum members who bought the TV and some email exchanges with Chad B. I bought the 632 and recently had Chad B calibrate it. I'm going from a Mits 82" WD82837 and the picture difference is huge. I do not see any of the graininess that I saw at HHgregg. The picture is just incredible. Better than my 42 inch Panasonic Plasma. I am using the CMS in my iScan Duo - which is why I chose the 632 over the 844 and at Chad's suggestion indicating that the contrast ratio on the 632 was a little better than the 844. In any event, minor probably negligible differences I would think between the 632 and 844 and I surmise the 90LE745U as well. I think Sharp has proven itself with these TV's. I've owned Mitsubishi's, Toshiba's, Pioneers (CRT) and some very old, but good Hitachi's (all professionally calibrated) and it's Sharp by a mile. I'm sure once you get the 90LE745U home you'll see something quite different than what is seen in the store.

A 90 Elite would be Nirvana!eek.gif but probably priced too high for my wallet.frown.gif

The 90" right now is priced a little high for my wallet to make a change at this time.

Oh yes and I was not implying it could not be improved with a proper calibration (and believe me I buy into that as much as anyone), my point was that having seen all of the various screen sizes and models Sharp offers this particular 90" appears very grainy in comparison (pre-cal/in store).

This is a set where minimum view distance needs to be strongly considered.

Oops, It looks like someone made me lie and bought one already!tongue.gif in the owners thread...

... At that price they should have included local dimming.

For that price, they should include FREE delivery, set up, including a complete ISF professional calibration
and a year's worth of premium DirecTv programing, with the NFL Sunday Ticket included.

Went to Magnolia showroom and saw one the other day. Dark Knight was being played. It looked awesome. But, the price tag.... :-)
post #258 of 1357
THE PRICE IS HIGH,BUT COMPARE TO THE SAMSUNG E9000(WHICH IS GOING FOR $17,900) IT'S NOT BAD..
post #259 of 1357
beyond overpriced right now but as they all do it will fall in price eventually. Give it alot of time

I don't think they will fall at all that much , as Sharp will replace with a newer model & better features .

^^^ I agree......but time will tell for sure.

You would think a lot of bars would want to buy one. I mean having a 90" screen would definitely get more customers in. I mean how many beers a week do you need to sell to make up the monthly payments? 30-40 beers? Seems like you could easily sell that many extra ones from having the a giant TV like that at your bar. Then again having 2 80" screens instead might be even better

That's the first time I've ever thought of paying for a TV with BEER, lol! Although I agree, I would definitely be attracted to a bar if they had one of these setup.

I was just in a restaurant/bar last night that had several big screens showing sports content.

They were all Mitsubishi DLP sets.

Can't beat the price for the screen size and non critical viewing.

I'd guess most business owners would be hard pressed to pay close to 10 grand for a single screen.

Its only about $10 per day if you finance a screen like that for 36 months. So if you're a bar owner I can't believe that you couldn't sell an extra $10 worth and alcohol/food for having the biggest LED in your entire area. Its not a crazy purchase. I would think at least the 80" ones would be at bars more often.
post #268 of 1357
Alot of bars and restaurants with tv's will hold on to a television for quite some time before getting rid of it.One of my local bars has a CRT 73" as one of it's main displays. Most patrons of a bar tend to not care a whole lot about pq or size as much as hanging with friends.Bars I have seen tend to go with 42-50" lcd and just put them in various places around the bar. I don't think it's cost effective for one large display where you have to have the seating focused on that tv as compared to multiple sets positioned around the place.
post #269 of 1357
I think if it were done right, it could draw customers in. Just putting one on a wall wouldn't amount to an influx of new customers. Also, you would probably need closer to 3500 drinks to pay one of these off, without considering happy-hour prices. This is without even considering professional installation costs. If you did 2 or 3 of these side by side, or one flanked by a few 80's it might be kind of cool though.
post #270 of 1357
I finallly went up to BB and saw the sharp 90 with my own eyes besides having to sit back outside the theater doors some it was average PQ. i was not really to impressed they had avatar playing in 3d mode of course but most people felt as we did might as well get a projector. Even the sales people were like the price on is thing is beyond overpriced and we sugguest a project to get a larger screen. It was on its own hanging on the wall and all and i dont see any hype for this tv as most stated the 80" is a better buy and plenty of screen to go around
