Official Sharp LC-90LE745U Discussion Thread [No Price Talk] d - Page 23

post #661 of 1357
....And the street price for the Sharp LC-90LE745U keeps coming down....Down to less than $7,500.00.
I wonder if it will ever come down to $6,000.00 or less which seems to be a fairer price to the majority of people in this thread considering that the 80" model is selling for around $4,000.00.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Moderator, please note that i am not discussing specific stores and their pricing for the LC-90LE745U but simply stating that street prices for this model continue to come down at a steady pace.

I'd love to learn more about the prices you see.

There is a Sharp 90" pricing thread under great deals found. Please post there....

I just googled Sharp LC-90LE745U again and the first result on top of the page is for the pricing i mentioned above; I'ts from a very "elegant" audio an video dealer with a brick & mortar address, no less, and from a customer's point of view i find that very/very reassuring.

I wonder if Sharp's financial situation (mountain of debt) is the reason for the price drop??? If Sharp goes away due to the financial crunch it is under, would that force their display prices to be cut even more??

I agree, at $6K or even $5K, Sharp will not be able to stop the rush of demand!

It will be interesting to see what sales if any show up around the SuperBowl !

Yes I just bought the kit last week for my 90". It looks great and helps with eye fatigue. The kit had just enough to do the top and the sides of the 90". Seems to increase the depth of the set.

I think he said the set cost too much and if you go with a projector you will save a lot of money.

post #680 of 1357
I'm very seriously considering this 90" monster, but I have a couple questions. I occasionally watch movies on Blu-ray or Vudu, but 90% of the time I am watching HD stuff recorded off Comcast with my TiVo. How does this type of content look on such a large, high-end screen? I know Comcast has a tendency to seriously compress their HD channels, and I'm worried that the artifacts will be even more obvious on such a large screen. Also, I will be sitting about 13 feet from the set. Is this a good distance for a screen this size?
post #681 of 1357
The distance is fine as far as how'd programming looks a owner of the set needs to comment

It varies by channel, but for the most part Comcast looks pretty good. I have directv, also. They both look good, about the same.

Thanks!

How high up are you guys mounting this thing? In the past I had read that you want the center of the screen to be at eye level. Obviously, when you are dealing with a screen this large, it's tough to do this, particularly when you have a stand with equipment below it. Speaking of stands, I've noticed that it's quite difficult to find ones that are wide enough for this bad boy. I followed a link at the top of the forum where I discovered this one:

http://www.standoutdesigns.com/collections/solid-wood-tv-consoles-tv-stands-media-consoles/products/haven-82-solid-wood-tv-console-media-stand

It seems like a pretty nice unit. I love the fact that it's just a little bit wider than the TV. Aesthetically, I think this looks really nice, even if you have the panel mounted on the wall. I also like the fact that it has a large spot for a center channel speaker. I've got a fairly large Paradigm center channel speaker that will fit nicely in it. Does anyone have experience with this stand or this company? Any other suggestions?

I'm interested in replies as well...

On my list are:

Standout Designs
Salamander Synergy
Bello
Plateau

They have a wide range in price.....

I have Directv DVR and I record a lot of sports and HBO series. It looks amazingly good for such a large screen. I think they did it right. I have yet to see any breakup or jaggies. Blu-rays looks terrific.
I am coming for a 70" and I didn't see a big drop off in sharpness but to be sure may want to get a Darbee or a Video processor. I use the Darbee and a DVDO Edge green VP just to make sure I get the most out of the signal. I am not saying you need that but I did it to get the max out.

I am setting at 13 ft and that is what seems to be recommended. Friends come over and say wow......this is great! I don't think you can go wrong especially with prices coming down. I got mine at BB for the current prices that are online. They were fine with matching the price.

Keep in mind the pedestal on the set is only 29" wide so you don't really need a wide stand if you don't want one. I have mine on a wide stand and it does look better that way. I have mine on a stand and its eye level but not to the center....you would have to have it on the floor to be centered eye level.
You know the bezel is so small it really doesn't look like a monster.
post #687 of 1357
The only thing that worries me about the Standout Designs stand is that it is 26-1/4" high. My current stand is only 19" high, and I have a 60" TV on it. The new stand is not only higher, but the TV is way bigger. This is why I was asking people how high they have mounted this TV. I'm concerned that the 90" set sitting on top of a 26" stand will seem kind of high when viewed from 13 feet away. I don't want to feel like I'm craning my neck to see it.
post #688 of 1357
My TV is on a 25" high stand viewing distance is 12 ft.

And do you find it to be a comfortable height to watch for long periods of time?
post #690 of 1357
My stand is 17" high and its perfect. I wouldn't want it any higher, not with a set that big, you would be staring up, unless you are much further away. I sit 13 ft away.
