I apologize. I'm not saying that the Sharps are not good displays. The one's I've seen are very good. My 632 has a very good picture with a few flaws. I'm simply saying that the off angle viewing is not acceptable to me. I won't pay $4000 for a display that doesn't suit my needs.
This a quote by Chad B from the Cleveland Plasma website. It's part of his review of the 80" 632.
"I found that the 632U, like most LED LCDs, was very sensitive to viewing angle. With the picture paused, moving just slightly off center caused flesh tones to pale and contrast to weaken. At a 9' viewing distance, moving about 1.5' to the side caused a noticeable degradation. In fact, because of the sheer size of the screen, even if you sit dead center you may still see some side effects of off axis angles near the screen edges. I saw that the edges became just barely pale at a 9-10' distance, so color was just slightly richer in the middle of the screen than along the outer quarters of the screen. Sitting farther away will diminish or eliminate the effect, though that is not a very good compromise. "
I found it to be accurate and although the picture is still good at off angle viewing it is not a sacrifice I'm willing to make.
I am referring to my set and the LCD sets that I've seen in person.
It's just my opinion.
