The CNET reviews said the 650 series have better black levels than the 757. I have one of each and my 650 has zero clouding while my 757 has a couple sizable patches - although that could just be my luck with the panel lottery. The 757 gives you 3D, Quattron, and a 240 panel, the latter two of which don't seem to make that much of a difference. Overall, I'm very pleased with both sets.

Just luck. You are right, they are both great units.

If that's the only major difference, and I am not much of a 3D fan, so I'll stick with the 650U. It gives a very nice grayscale after calibration.

Thanks for the feedback.

Has anyone notice overdrive trailing (blue/purple) smearing halos around moving objects on the 757u? It will also appear as black smearing in darker areas of the screen in planning shots in games or movies.

I just purchased this fantastic set, the 60" model and loved how it looked in the store. When I got home and unpacked it, the colors looked a bit faded. After playing with several of the video settings, I decided to try the EZ setup again, but this time chose store settings. It cautioned that energy savings were not part of this mode, but the colors and richness looked as sharp as what I saw in the store. Does anyone know the settings for this so I can modify sound settings? It seems that all settings are locked out when in store mode, which I understand if it's a display model. But I truly want the vibrant colors and not too worried about energy compliance versus fantastic picture. Also, wanted to disable the wallpaper mode, not an option in store settings either. It's cool watercolor paintings, but I'm certain less energy efficient even more so.

 

So, any help greatly appreciated.

I just recently got this set. Finally had the chance to get it set up once we moved into our home. For the last 2 weeks majority of use has been xbox 360 gaming by my son without any complaints for the limited time I watched/participated. Previous TV was a Samsun PN58C6400, it was fantastic.

A couple days ago the wife and I sat down one eve to watch a bit of recorded TV and what we noticed really surprised us. It's hard to explain. The issue occurred while we watched w the set on all factory settings. I have just input the settings from the first post in this thread and the pq is much better, more natural. BUT the issue is flashing of very fast refreshing white sparkles/dots more noticeable in the dark scenes or on black grounds. It also appears on lighter backgrounds as well however is most noticeable in scenes which don't have a lot of movement occurring. However both my son and wife notice it more than me but I see it as well. Since inputting the settings from post 1 it is better but still noticeable.

Now I got the set in December and just got it installed 2 weeks ago, I can return to the store and exchange for another brand or go through Sharp for a new unit. I am just trying to see if others are familiar with this. Currently I am running the set via hdmi through a brand new Pioneer SC -67 Elite receiver connected to tv hdmi 2, have also tried tv hdmi 1 input and I plan to test unit out running the the TV source direct to the TV to see if this could be hdmi cable related or receiver related. image.jpg 1061k .jpg file

I have attached a photo of a paused screen of Live TV I was watching on a black background. What am I seeing here, of course while TV is playing this is less noticeable but still an issue that I need to solve as it is not acceptable. My son has said it was occurring before I ran all equipment through the receiver via hdmi but I have not had time to watch in past off confirm this. I am also going to connect LAN cable and check for update but imagine this will not do much if there is a more recent update

Look forward to any feedback.

Now after spending a bit more time and considering how our whole setup is connected I have improved the issue. I have disconnected and ran all gear direct to wall power bypassing any power conditioning filtering.

I am/was running all components through a new/refurbished Monster HDP 2500 just purchased. I would have continued to use my Belkin Pure AV Battery Backup unit but the battery died after 7 years so I opted for the HDP Monster unit.

After disconnecting my tv box and running it direct to the wall outlet and the hdmi direct to the TV via input 3 and then also running the TV set direct to the wall the issue has almost eliminated itself except in transition scenes where the screen appears completely black I may notice some slight sparkle but I assume this may be picked up because I am aware of the previous issue and I also know this is an LED and not gonna do the blacks our previous plasma did. My wife agrees it is now significantly better and I believe my sons Xbox 360 power was passing through the HDP 2500. So I plan to return this unit and replace my Belkin Pure AV battery if I can confirm it will fir in a compartment within our new Sonax ML 3609 AV stand which I don't think it will, if that's the case I have to look at another power surge protector. Our home is 2 yrs old but I think I need something to protect all my components so if there are suggestions fire away.

Little dissapointed in the Monster HDP 2500, however I am under warranty and can go that route or return for a refund as I think I am close to 30 day window, the replacement process may be a real hassle and I would only considering going that route if I know I am getting a brand new replacement. I am also aware these units are good for a max 4-5 yr window then you must replace.

Getting used to the artificial nature of the picture is another thing, the settings from the initial post have greatly improved this but I also attribute some of this to the increased screen size moving up from a 58 at same viewing distance of about 11 ft, yeah I should have an 80 but this is it!:-)

My components are below
70" LE757 latest software
Pioneer Elite SC -67
Pioneer BDP 62FD 3D Blue Ray
Xbox 360
Aios Pivos media box
Telus Optik HD TV
Pro-Ject Debut Carbon TT
Klipsch Icon WF34/WS24/WC24
EmpTek es1010i Sub

But is the sparkle issue a normal thing or to be expected to some degree with LED sets. If so is Sharp more prone to it than Samsung as example? It was late last night when I disconnected and reconnected everything direct to see if the issue continued, we could not notice, only saw some minor issues when screen would transition to the next scene and for the brief pause of a black background it was very very faint, I attribute this to LED ?

GAME MODE CALIBRATION SETTINGS

 

Hello All ... For those of you still looking for calibration settings for GAME mode on the LC-60LE757U, you will want to give these a try.  I too couldn't get over the motion blur effect on the other TV mode settings and decided to use the GAME mode setting exclusively.  I had two different ICF calibration service companies come out (the first company just couldn't get it looking right) and had them labor over the GAME mode color settings until I was finally happy with the result.  GAME mode naturally has a strong red push and getting it accurate and leveled out was challenging. 

 

The color settings below look fantastic on my TV.  In the end it ran me a little over $500 in calibration costs (which did not leave me very popular with my wife), but I can finally say I am thrilled with the picture on this TV now.  It was a long road, but worth it to me in the end.

 

I hope you too can benefit from these settings.  Enjoy!

I just got my 60 In 757 and it looks great except for purple lips on people not wearing lipstick.  What setting controls this and does anyone have preferred settings for HDTV viewing.  I have Direct TV.

Eqbrat,

 

I wanna thank you for posting this Game Mode Calibration Settings. Do you happen to have the Movie Mode Calibration Setting as well?

 

Thank you for your time!
