For your seating distance, I'd spring for the 90 inch Sharp. The price difference between the 75 inch Samsung and the 90 inch Sharp is minimal. If I were a single guy again, I'd have one. lol.

New updates to apps on new product TBA at CES 2014. The SmartCentral apps are pretty weak in the current gen of Sharp panels. Is there 3D suppport for the VUDU app on the 857 series?

However, I've noticed that 3 out of the 4 corners on my F7100 are noticeably dark. Not sure if this is considered normal or if I should exchange the set. I'm now also considering exchanging my Samsung for the 80 inch 857. Since my viewing distance is 16 ft, the 75 inch F7100 doesn't look big at all.


I understand your delimma in trying to get the 'better' TV. But at the end of the day, I think size is what matters! Primarily because the Sharp is also a good TV, albeit Samsung has a few better features. But after the newness wears off and you are just watching TV, it is the size that you will continue to appreciate in the long run. Since you seem to be in a much high price range, (based on purchasing the 75" Samsung) and because the Samsungs cost quite a bit more than the Sharps, I am inclined to agree with myoda, buy the largest TV you can afford. If you can afford the 90" Sharp, you will definitly see that as being large in your viewing room! That is certainly what I would buy if I could afford it.....

Anybody have any idea why Sharp does not make a 90" 857 TV?? Normally the top of the line TVs get all the best stuff. Sharp seems to be behind on that upgrade???

The current 90" is last year's model that they are continuing to sell this year. Either they couldn't make an edge lit 90" and/or the sales volume of a set that size didn't warrant new models.

Thanks for your thoughts. Yeah, it's a tough choice. Went back to my local store and they have the 2 sets right next to each other. The 7100 appears to have the superior picture quality, but that's not to say the 857 looks bad. But the 857 definitely looks bigger than the 7100 due to the combo of the 7100's extremely slim bezel and the 5 inch size difference.

At the end of the day, just trying to decide whether to sacrifice picture quality for a bigger screen size.

Let me make one more point. I too compared the Samsung 8000 to the Sharp 857 in the store. At first, it appeared the Samsung was much better and the 857 had a lot of color saturation due to the "super bright" feature. I then had the salesman make adjustments to the Sharp TV, turning down the brightness and a few other settings. Then when I did the comparison it was much tougher to decide which picture was better. On some scenes the Samsung looked better, but on other scenes the Sharp looked better.

The point is this, be careful of the settings on the TVs when you compare side by side. The TVs are setup in the store with specific settings designed for store viewing. These will NOT be the best settings for your viewing at home. The other important point is to realize that while comparing side by side in the store, you may be able to prefer a certain detail on one TV over the other, but in your home you will only be looking at 1 TV and saying WOW, that picture is amazing. Both TVs are very good and at home when you set the controls to the picture you like, it will be an amazing picture. Dont get too wrapped up in the side by sides as long as both TVs are providing excellent pictures......

Review: Sharp LC-80LE857U

Sharp's exclusive Quattron technology has been passed along from last year's popular 844U to the new 857U. Some interesting picture quality related changes have been made, including a move from full array LED to edge lit backlighting, elimination of the "hidden until activated" ISF Day and Night picture modes, and the addition of a new "Vintage Movie" mode. The LC-80LE857U remains one of the largest consumer grade displays available, the king of which is Sharp's own 90" 745U model.

The 857u's semi-matte screen doesn't have the shiny, glass like surface of most competing models, but glare can still be a significant problem. In normal living rooms, the 857u's screen remains commendably dark provided care is taken to minimize glare and direct sunlight. In addition, the 857u's extremely high brightness capability allows the image to punch through an average amount of ambient light while maintaining a rich, exciting image. Off axis behavior remains a significant problem however, plaguing even mildly off center viewpoints with violet skin tones and reduced contrast. Be sure to arrange critical viewing positions directly in front of the screen, and tilt it down if it's mounted up high.

Before calibration:

Without making any adjustments, I fed the 857U a 1080P signal and took a glance at how the different picture modes came across. After the initial viewing, I turned off the room light sensor and measured the otherwise untouched performance of some of the various modes.

Standard (Energy Star) rewards your efforts to go green with a picture that looks hyped and enhanced, with overexposed, homogenized, and bluish whites. Exciting? Well, in a way, but probably not what most enthusiasts are hoping for.

Auto featured more natural skin tones, but poor shadow detail and flat, crushed whites. It was also somewhat dark.

Movie mode was punchy with good contrast, but made everyone look pink. In addition, it had cool, somewhat bluish whites.

The lower red saturation points can be seen to stray toward magenta,which caused the pink flesh tones. The gamma was fairly well controlled, if still a bit compressed.

The new Vintage Movie had obvious flicker, which I found out later could be turned off, pink skin tones, and poor shadow detail. It did end up being an interesting mode, with an admirable attempt at recreating an old-time movie feel.

Note the unusual gamma shape and improved but still lacking red saturation.

Dynamic (fixed) appeared very overexposed and highlighted. Whites were blazingly bright, but flat. Dark areas of the image sunk down into the black background, making dark hair and clothes look like blobs of tar; and unfortunately the overall look was very unnatural.

Note the extremely high maximum light output, and the equally low gamma which compressed mid tones and bright levels together.

Game mode was a bit flat and undernourished, with pale and slightly pinkish skin tones. PC mode was very similar to Game.


Finally, User mode appeared similar to Auto but was punchier and brighter, while being much more palatable than dynamic.


The infamous soap opera effect was present in most of the above modes, giving a strange hyper-real, yet somehow wrong, look to motion. Thankfully, though, through all of this the 857U showed that it did have good potential, with razor-sharp resolution and good contrast.

Calibration:

Unlike with the 844U, I was not able to interface with the 875U with either CalMAN or ControlCal software. That was necessary on the 844U to open up it's ISF Day and Night modes. The ISF modes had similar adjustments to Movie mode, but with greater range. On the 857U, Movie mode does have all the necessary controls; but with it's limited range, Movie mode's 10pt adjustment could not be calibrated fully to D6500 without going into the service menu. The service menu does contain a 6 point white balance and gamma adjustment, though it is not designed to be intuitive. A decade ago, calibration was always done in the secret service menus, but in the last few years manufacturers have been moving those adjustments out into the advanced section of the user menus. Service menus are not only cryptic by design, but improper use can easily render a display useless; so they should be avoided whenever possible. However, in the 857U's case, I was not able to get close enough to the target white point and gamma without it. I ended up using the Service menu's 6 point adjustment for the bulk of the correction and using Movie mode's controls for refinement.

Measuring the relative light output of the various motion enhancement settings, I found that settings of Off, 120 Low, and 120 High measured the same at 89 fL; switching to AquoMotion 240 dropped light output to 68 fL, and 240 was 67 fL. AquMotion 960 significantly dimmed the picture, reading 34 fL. Black levels went up and down along with light output, so the overall effect on light output was similar to different settings of the backlight. Contrast ratio changed less than 5%.

White uniformity was very good, with a just barely perceptible yellow/greenish tinge on the bottom corner. Black uniformity did not fare as well, with some clouding visible.

After calibration:

The 857U measured well after calibration (see SharpLC-80LE857U movie.pdf 1387k .pdf file ), though traces of Quattron related inaccuracies remained. Thankfully, they can be balanced out and the overall presentation was commendable. The biggest transformations in the 857U's performance were in the detail of bright objects and highlights, and also in the naturalness of flesh tones. Don't mistake the 857U's performance in the store with what it's capable of after some calibration TLC; the latter can be quite stunning.
In average ambient lighting, the clouding in the blacks is effectively masked, and the 857U's image shines through vibrantly. Contrast in average pictures is strong. Sports look great on the 857U, with natural looking fields, motion, and good detail.
If dark room movie watching isn't your main concern, the 857U is sure to please, with natural looking colors and a bright, clear picture.

Excellent report. We appreciate the great detail and positive feedback. Of course, the only and most important detail is missing. That is the actual settings after the calibration??

Thank you, I'm glad you like the review!

I don't publish settings for many reasons,and there's an additional reason that applies to this model only.

General reasons:

Calibration varies from one sample to the next. If I have 2 80LE857Us side by side, calibrate the first one, and then put it's settings into the 2nd one, the 2nd one is most likely not going to be good enough to be called calibrated. I've done it before and tried it on an LG LED and several others; it just doesn't work.

Calibration is tailored to your specific environment (lighting conditions,etc), system (source settings, etc) and even your wishes (do you like a darker picture or brighter, etc).

If I were to do it and you were to put them in, when your set and environment don't match up, you may mistakenly think "Hey, I don't like this. I must not like a calibrated picture!"

Specific issue to 857U:

Some adjustments were made in the service menu and some in the user menu. I can't provide all the instructions needed to safely navigate the SM. It's dangerous and complicated.

OK, all of that makes since.... I kind of suspected that calibrations might be unique, and now you have confirmed that suspicion. So I will just have to wait until I get my calibration gets done (by Best Buy) in a couple of weeks........

But it is also interesting how 'off' the settings were in the pre-calibration readouts. This supports the point that I was trying to make in a earlier post about comparing TVs side by side in the store. You have to be careful about how they are setup......

Anyway, Sharp will sell their own 3-year extention (to 4 years) for $179, in home, even if you don't buy the TV from them.

Then the guy, who was otherwise respectful, went on to the "white glove" shipping, saying it's critical for a big TV like this (which does make some sense). When I told him I'd take my chances, he said they need to charge a 7% insurance fee, which he said is "right there on the cart". Sure enough, in very small print under "more details" it says an insurance fee is mandatory, EVEN THOUGH IT DID NOT SHOW ON THE CART.

I finally settled for the "white glove" stuff at $249, which actually makes make some sense, even though it's overpriced. Oh... they gave me $200 in some kind of coupons... what crap!!

At the end of the day, it wasn't that bad of a deal if you don't count the aggravation. Beware Abe's of Maine.

Hi George,

Yea, I know all about Abe's of Maine from my Photography hobby....how they have stayed in business for this many years is beyond me....B and H Photo they are not...

I wanted to thank you very much for this post....I just ordered the 80" 857 today at Best Buy and over the last few days I was struggling with their extended warranty prices. Sharp can get me one direct, 5 years(out to 2018) for $235, in-home parts/labor, no deductible. I had no idea Sharp even sold extended warranties on their stuff....thanks very much!

Jeff

I will be picking up 60" 857U tonight from Best Buy. I am upgrading from a 50" inch Samsung Plasma from 4-5 years ago. I mainly wanted to go bigger. Hopefully, 10" increase is all that is needed. I had just learned that the 3D Glasses aren't rechargeable. How long does the battery typically last? Do I have to upgrade my HDMI cables for 3D I believe the ones I have currently are 1.3b. I will be going through a Pioneer Elite Receiver that supports 3D and using PS3 Slim & DirecTV HR 34 for my 3D Sources.

Hmm, good question about the HDMI cables... you may not need new cables, but you will need to make sure you use input port HDMI 1 on the TV. This is the port that has the audio return (AR) for sending audio back to the receiver.

I plan on using HDMI port 1 since I have everything connected to the Pioneer and switch sources using it. Do I need to set anything special on the receiver or tv for AR?

I just did a review of the manual and it does not look like there are any special settings for the AR connection..

Audio Return needs to be on in the AVR. Sometimes engaging ARC involves turning on HDMI CEC - for the Sharp, it's Aquos Link. Not sure what it is on the Pioneer, but you need to turn on the ARC on the AVR..

Audio Return Channel
This function allows you to listen to the TV audio via
audio equipment without using an optical fi ber cable,
which conventionally is required.
Requirements for using an ARC-compatible AV
amplifi er:
• ARC-compatible AV amplifi er connected to the ARCcompatible
HDMI IN terminal (HDMI IN 1).
(Refer to the operation manual of the ARC-compatible
equipment for details.)
• Use of an ARC-compatible cable.
Auto: You can listen to the TV audio with ARCcompatible
audio equipment.
Off: This function does not work.

Thanks for the info!!! I normally lower the volume on tv to 0 and use the speakers hooked up to AVR to audio. I like having Surround Sound for everything I watch

However, my Pioneer does have HDMI CEC option which is supposed to power on the receiver if the tv is powered on. I never got this to work with my Samsung.

I do have Best Buy Reward Zone Silver Status so it sounds like I can have them come out to calibrate the tv for free? Also, if I use the settings posted here would it be the same settings for the entire series or just for that tv's particular size?

Does anyone know if the tv supports 5GHz wifi or just 2.4GHz?

I totally splurged on this tv. I had originally planned on getting the 70" 7500U from Costco but then discovered it does not have 3D. Then I thought about the 70" 757U with 3D but the price was $500 more then the 7500 which was over my budget so I had to down size to 60". I had first started looking at the 60" 757U but Best Buy only carries the 755U. Was going to get it but my local Best Buy does not have it available and the 755U did not have Aquamotion 480 and not so favorable reviews. So I decided on the 857!!! Hopefully, I won't be disappointed A little scared now from reading through this thread because of the cloudy & flashlighting. I either had DLP or Plasma TV the last 7 years.

I will be picking up the tv in a few hours smile.gif

I went through a lot of the same considerations in selecting the TV. The Sharp TV just provides the best value for large size TV's. And I decided to buy the 857 to be sure to get the latest Sharp technologies... (The 857 has the super bright feature over the 757....)

Don't worry about the clouding and flash stuff. Those are details that you have to be looking for. At least I have not noticed any of these problems.....

Yes, the TV supports 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi.

I also bought my TV from best buy and got the free calibration. I just scheduled it today. Wont get the service for 2 more weeks.... (note: They want you to have 200+ hrs on your TV before getting the calibration....)

I got my tv all set up!!! There is some slight clouding but it seems to be going away with use.

3D did work just fine with my existing HDMI cables. It's incredible!!!

Turned on HDMI CEC on my Pioneer VSX 33 but it does not play well with my DirecTV HR-34 so I had to disable it.

After reading the manual again for my Pioneer I was able to find out why the DIrecTV HR-34 did not play well with HDMI CEC and correct the issue. Now, I have AR working!!

Instead of assigning the DVR / BDR input to HDMI 3, I just directly use HDMI 3 as input source. When HDMI CEC is turned on the assigning of HDMI inputs is disabled.

I have the LC-70LE857. When I press the SmartCentral button, I hear a tone. But the screen is blank. When I press Exit, I hear a different tone and then I can press Menu to see the menu. What is the magic to see the SmartCentral apps? I've updated the firmware to the latest as of 8/2/2013.

One other bit of info. I can press the Netflix button or the FAV APP buttons and the associated apps display.

I'm connected to the internet via wired. And the connectivity test is successful.

Sharp's software does seem to be a bit unstable. I've had the You Tube app freeze, refuse to launch, etc. Have you tried resetting the TV? It may be a pain to reconfigure (particularly if you've calibrated) but that's the step I'd suggest next. If that doesn't help, you will need to call Sharp.

Yep! I think the Sharp software is unstable as well. It often does not hold the settings on Smart Central and requires resetting......

Thanks for posting your settings!!! The tv absolutely looks great with them! I had tried settings from another site and it made the colors overly yellow

Thanks for the post!!! This solved the issue I was having with my DirecTV Genie HR34 with 720P sources. I just unchecked the 720P and now the box upconverts it to 1080i and no more stop motion!!!

I'm glad my settings work for you. There's enough variation from set to set that it's not surprising that you had a problem.
