so was the price drop from the $39xx that was mentioned before?
post #243 of 1760
my local Sams had it for 500 less than the price you mentioned
post #244 of 1760
does anyone know of an articulating mount that will handle this beast?
post #245 of 1760
Sure BB has two serious mounts, one is $600 the other is $800, I used the $600 mount for my Elite Plasma Pro150 (60"). No probs at all.

hmmmm Both are only rated up to 63 and 175 pounds. I thought this set weighed in at 190 without the stand.

a chat with Peerless, they told me none of their articulating mounts would work with this tv?

what is the return policy for sams club on items like this?
post #252 of 1760
Speaking of mounts... I think this is a good one if you don't need the mount to be fully articulating (I don't see a need for it in my situation...). Similar to the Sam's mount mentioned before but I think it is sturdier. You can catch three studs and it is rated up to 250lbs. At 99 bucks from Costco, seems like a good bet. I may get this...

While it was not this set - we did have to return a defective pioneer to SAMS - about 5 months after purchase. Not a problem. They said I had to have the receipt, no boxes and the remote and any paperwork or accessories. Took about 5 minutes to return. Getting there and unloading - well thats a different story!

Hopefully not as painful as the process of attempting to return THREE Sharp HDTV's to the USA branch by writing to the president/vice-president of the division and/or chasing their secretaries by phone.

Question: Were did you get the weight of 155 without stand, all the other post I have seen say 186 to 190 without stand and 230 with stand.

Im kinda thinkin about replacing my Pio 6070 for this 65 incher but the only thing that bugs me is the reports of almost 200lbs as I wall mount all my panels.
As I recall my 6070 is around 113lbs and was fairly easy to wall mount but 200lbs is a big jump in pounds,,,, 155 would be nice if that is the weight.

Thanks in advance
Cheers

PCMall had it listed as follows:

Weight, lbs without Stand 190

Sharp 65" SE94 is but 112lbs without stand. That's quivalent to another 42" panel added on. Of course for now the Sharp costs about double.

When I see these weights of the Olevia Sharp Glass it makes me wonder if they are using the previous gen 65" Sharp panel that was extremely heavy like my 57" which is 164lbs. Doesn't seem it would be economical since those panels were manufactured in Japan not the US whereas the D64's 65" are totally built in Mexico including the substrate glass.

It doesn't seem possible to sell the Olevia at such low prices if the glass was shipping from Japan but who knows perhaps the profit margin is much higher than we realize. Otherwise what in the hell could Syntax be adding that makes the panels so damn heavy?

Hey Westa, yea, to bad the Sharp is so much more money, but then again some have posted the picture is better on the Olevia, it would be interesting to see the two side by side.

It would seem PCMALL has the weight incorrect as well.

I just went on the Olevia website and had a look-see at the manual, the Olevia manual has the 65 incher listed at 156 lbs without the stand, so "Suzook" was correct in his post.

156lbs makes me feel much better about wall mounting.

The mount I currently have my 6070 mounted on is an extra large wide flat mount that spans 3 studs, Im sure it would hold the 156 lbs with no problem at all.

I really do love my 60 inch Pioneer plasma but I gota say that Olevia is looking pretty tempting.

And thanks "Suzook" for posting the correct weight.

Cheers

Sorry to disappoint you, but is 186.32lbs. without the stand, according to the manual. The website just shows the net weight as 235lbs. It was all me and my son could do to carry the unboxed TV into the house and up 3 steps from the garage and we are both 200lbs plus...

According to page 66 (Specifications) of the manual that is currently on the Olevia website, the weight for this tv w/o stand is 156.56 lbs, with stand it is 200.66 lbs, and Gross weight (whatever this is, packaged?) is 231.53 lbs.

Perhaps the differences between your manual and the one on the website is due to manufacturing changes made to the tv, e.g., different panel?
post #260 of 1760
I just downloaded the manual, and it is different from the one which came with the TV. Aside from the different weights shown in the one currently posteed on the Olevia website, I notice that the remote pictured in the one I just downloaded is different thant the one which came with the TV (and which is pictured in the manual that came on a CD with the TV....). The one pictured in the downloaded manual is a learning remote that includes an IR sensor for learning commands. Interesting, since the other specs are the same. It wouldn't be the manual from the as yet unreased 65" model, because that one uses a different video processor. I don't know what these descrepencies mean, but I do know that the one I bought (and as far as I can tell, is still the one available in my local Sams) is the one described in the manual on the CD. I don't have a way to weigh the beast, but my best guess is that the one in my living room is the heavier of the weights stated in this thread. I doubt that all other characteristics, including the cosmetics, would remain the same and that the only change would be a different remote and weight this close to the release of the 08" 265t. But what do I know... I can only speculate that there may be slightly differen models for different world markets, but I do know that the one I have is the one described in the manual that came on the CD with the TV...

I am considering importing a 65" Olevia to Sweden, Europe. The price is just fantastic! I do realize the TV tuner won't work, but it doesn't matter. I'll just buy a separate HDTV-receiver with an HDMI output locally, here in Sweden.

Anyway, the discrepancies between the manual and the actual TV worries me a bit. We have 230VAC and 50Hz power. It says in the PDF-manual on the Olevia web site that it can handle 100-240VAC / 50-60Hz. Before I saw this I was considering buying a step down converter, but if it can handle 230VAC I won't have to and that would be really great. Also I wouldn't have to worry about the 60/50Hz problem.

Can you (AC or someone who owns one of these TV's) verify if what it says in the web site PDF-manual is correct in this respect? That is, does it say the same thing on the back of your TV and in your manual? (that is, 100-240VAC and 50-60Hz)

Also, what would be really really nice would be if you AC or someone else could take a few minutes to upload the "real" manual (from the CD) to some web site so that we could all access it. I just made a quick google search for hosting services and I found one called mediafire dot com. Seems easy to use. Just upload to the site and it generates a URL for you that you can post here. Please, someone... :-)
post #263 of 1760
hey I was right

Now where can one find an articulating mount for this thing
post #264 of 1760
wm60d is articulating and will work for the 65" set . Do a search at target.com and you can see . This , mount is for the 47" and 65" . It's real sturdy and works real good . I have used it on a 47" olevia ................

Plasma's have a whimpie picture and the measurements prove it, and reviewers who don't see it are blind:

The gross weight is what you pay for shipping per the size of box - it's weight plus the pallet they are usually strapped to during shipping that stabilizes and prevents tipping. Sure to say it's one heavy mother. Mine being 164lbs with stand seemed much heavier than that and it was a bitch getting leverage on it just to get it up on a 23" stand and I'm 6' 2" and 220 and had another helping. I would recommend at least three if not four to mount it though.

To the owners - does this TV have Dot Mode 1:1? (Sharps version of 1:1)

Guess I'll have to break down an get a membership to check this beast out.

Doesnt seem to say who makes this?
post #268 of 1760
my bad, it looks like Olevia makes this. According to the site though it only accommodates up to a 52 inch?

say your sorry and that I was right
post #270 of 1760
I will say that you are right about what the manual currently posted on the Olevia website says about the weight of the 265T. I would also say that I am right about what the manual that came with my TV states about the weight of the 265T. Which is correct? Well, since there are some other differences between the two documents, most notably the section about the remote, and the fact that the remote that comes with mine corresponds to the manual that I have... well, suffice it to say that I am inclined to believe the manual that came with my TV. Perhaps Olevia somehow removed 33lbs. and upgraded the remotes on the currently shipping 265T... I would be surprised if they would make those changes this close to the release of the new model, but perhaps they did. Since I have no way to actually weigh the beast, I can only go with my sense of its weight from lifting it on to the wood TV stand. My son and I accomplished this (he is a recentl x-marine who at 230lbs. and at 6'3" still looks like a recruiting poster...) without undue strain, but we both thought that it felt every bit of 230lbs.
Consider that the new model, according to the spec sheets posted earlier in this thread, downgrades the video processor from the SO Realta, I am happy that I got this years model of the 265T. No doubt the new 765 model would be a definite step up from the 07' 265T, but I don't think that the 08' version of the 265T does the same. But if you really want an apology...
