I had read in a tech mag that the yellow was just a marketing gimmick. It said that unless the signal included it, that it really didn't do anything. Not sure of all the details, but I remember something to that effect. Most of the Sharp screens do look nice though.

Don't know about it being a gimmick, but I was sitting in front of a 70inch Sharp tv and man the picture was alot brighter then all the others.

But I did see a Toshiba 3D tv that uses the glasses that you get at the movies now. Which isn't to bad seeing how a 100 bucks for maybe two glasses.

I had a Samsung 58" 3D plasma that went out 2 weeks before warranty expired. Samsung came out and said there was a short in the screen and they would have to exchange/refund. They called and said they can't get that large of screens right now and could exchange for 50" or refund. I went with the refund. Don't have it yet, but waiting for them to pick the TV up. I looked at some LG 3D's this weekend at BestBuy that used the non active screens like movie theaters. I saw a lot of ghosting and double images. May have been a setting. Got to decide now on whether to get another Samsung, or maybe a Panasonic. I'm open to suggestions though.

Personally, I'm wary about the 3D tv's in general. It hasn't ever caught on before, and it gives a lot of consumers headaches, myself included. Plus the price is really high. Most DVD's just don't "Pop" like they should. If I were to get a big set, I'd likely go with a high end LED 50+ and wait out the 3D for a few months. If its still really kicking, you should have enough to sell/trade up for the newer set you want.

I'm thinking about doing that. I rarely watch anything in 3D, but it's a nice option to have on occasion. Most of the 3D sets are great 2D sets, but I'm sure I could save some cash just going 2D. I do have about 10 3D blurays and 3D bluray player (plus PS3). I guess I could sell them on Ebay.

I would wait until the end of this year, so many company's are going to be coming out with tv's that do 3D without the glasses.

For now I'm happy with my tv and if I do get a new one, I'm giving my to my dad. He seen my tv and has been asking me if I wanted to trade tv's lol.

Totido says:
Yeah, i may do that. I took my 37" from one of the bedrooms and moved it to the den after the Samsung died.

In reply to an earlier post on May 23, 2011 10:38:24 AM PDT
Yeah, seeing how everyone is coming out with new tv's. I just hope the price isn't double of what a 3D TV with glasses.

The extra yellow Sharp offers is a gimmick at best. Sony isn't top three anymore. Panasonic is king. Plasma has a better picture than LED. Ask any hardcore videophile, those are the facts.

I posted three links backing up those facts, Joseph posted 5. Notice how those who disagree have not posted a single link backing their claims up? Also anybody who would suggest Sharp is a moron, plain and simple. Anybody who wants the best picture buys plasma via Panasonic or Pioneer.

In reply to an earlier post on May 24, 2011 7:53:17 AM PDT
Yeah if they what a heavy cheap tv, sorry but you can keep making out with your Panasonic. But I seen that it is not much for a Sharp tv.

Have fun with that glass window you call a tv.

Will do, I most certainly will enjoy the universally accepted best HD picture on the market. Have fun with your mid range picture quality.

In reply to an earlier post on May 24, 2011 8:19:58 AM PDT
You have fun look at SD then, seeing how that is what it looks like to this new Gen of tv's.

Will do. Apparently "SD" looks better than the new gen of HD. I will certainly continue to enjoy the universally highest rated picture quality on the market.

And that is what makes this little charade so much fun, there isn't anything you can say that will change the facts that all the major reviewers all agree that Pansonic is king. Nothing.

Yeah SD doesn't look better then HD, in your fantasy world.

Sincerely, Enjoy your Aquos Corye. Noone's stopping you for doing that. But its not the best TV according to reviewers and consumers, its a sad fact. The consumer wanted to know what the best brand is, and the general consensus in the real world out there is that Panasonic makes the best TV out there for the price. This is solid professional backed fact. It is fact, fact, fact fact. It is not disputable, stop trying. What you can do, is enjoy your purchase, recommend a Sharp if you wish, but its just not the best, and while it is good ranked in the top 10, the consumer wants the best, your sharp isn't, don't have a pity party, help a guy out.

Would you recommend a Civic to a guy who wants a sportscar?
Seriously, just help the man, he's got the money to get the best set, be happy to help him get one that he'll love.

In reply to an earlier post on May 25, 2011 8:43:15 PM PDT
No I would tell the guy to get a Viper, seeing how thats the car I like.

Or maybe Dodge Zeo.

Well said Joseph.

Yeah, to bad you guys are about the only fools to think outdated tech is better lol.

Sharp Aquos 2011 Review: 6.2/10
Sony Bravia 2011 Review: 6.9/10
Panasonic Viera 2011 Review: 8.7/10

"Although it's blessed with a solid feature set, the picture quality of Sharp LC-LE830U series falls short of most LED-based LCD TVs we've tested."

"The picture quality of Sony's KDL-EX720 shows some flaws but its efficiency, design, and well-stocked feature list will win plenty of converts."

"Superb all-around picture quality, anchored by the deepest plasma black levels of the year, make the Panasonic TC-PVT30 series the BEST-performing TV we've tested in 2011."

ahhhh @Corye, ignorance is bliss isn't it? You're in such self denial.. it's actually rather fun to see what you will say next!

Keep posting CNET, that is all you are good for.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 3, 2011 12:20:16 PM PDT
No, I seen them side by side, have you? Or are you like Christopher Keller that believe everything the web tells you?

Keller says:
I own both, so yes I have seen both side by side. Panasonic by a landslide. Quite honestly it isn't even close. Nothing you say will change the fact that all 9 major review sites all agree, Panasonic. Not a single one says anything other than Panasonic.

Sorry all I here is " CNET CNET CNET".
