|I Just Got On: |
Sharp LC-80LE632U 80-Inch LED-lit 1080p 120Hz Internet TV - Never thought I'd pull this trigger (GLAD I DID)!
This of course is not my first HD TV. My first was a Toshiba DLP, and it was a lamp hog. Then a Toshiba 50 inch plasma, which failed in 3 years, then LG's first 1080p 60 inch plasma (Still working great), a Mitsubishi 73 inch DLP, (Still working great), and now, the ultimate plunge with this Sharp 80 inch TV.
My viewing area for this TV is 12 feet at its closest and 15 at the farthest, and I instantly thought when I turned this monster on, that I should have stayed with the 70 incher. Oh well, it is mine and I am happy with it.
For its size, this TV is well made and looks nice. Picture quality is excellent as close as 3 feet, and then as far back as you can go. I also purchased this TV from a major retailer in Texas because Amazon would not take 2 credit cards, and G. E. gave me more 36 months interest free credit at the Texas retailer than they did at Amazon on the store card, so Amazon lost the sale. I also looked for quite awhile at the, the Sharp 70 inch, and the Panasonic 65 inch VT30 Plasma, and I chose this TV for several reasons. Overall for size, quality, and looks, coupled with its truly great picture and excellent blacks. Remember, the better the blacks, the better the color, because black is the number one color in the color scheme.
I gave this TV 5 Stars because of its numerous features and control ability with its menus. The picture is also superb, but the Panasonic 65VT30 still has a little better picture quality SAVE AND EXCEPT LED LOOKS MORE NATURAL. I ADD THIS BECAUSE I STILL HAVE MY 60 INCH lg PLASMA IN MY BEDROOM, AND THE SHARP LED IS MUCH EASIER ON THE EYES THAN THE PLASMA AND NOT OVER CONTRASTED. LED is rapidly gaining on plasma though. Overall, I love this TV, and I will finally stop looking for awhile, because it is like being in a movie theater every time I turn it on. It also does not have the delay when turned on like the Mitsubishi DLP. The other good thing is when this TV is on all day, it is cool to the touch, where the Panasonic plasma is not.
Some settings from the calibration of my set, which I noticed was great out of the box, but it was somewhat to the red side on the tints. My calibration settings are as follows, and this was professionally done, and will help the rest of you get yours close. Mine now rocks!
