image8.jpgI had a hunch that would get your attention. Where else than TweakTV could you expect to even find the answer? Should you have nearly $125K and feel it won't serve you nearly as well whilst Wall Street see-saws, you can assemble the system I will be telling you about for your own amusement, once and for all finally besting the brother in law. However, you won't have access to the same content that I am privileged to view nearly 50 plus times per year.

home_theater.jpgIt's a rare and fortunate "find" when you encounter a client who is willing (actually, more like insistent) to have you build three theaters for him. I've been favored with a few such patrons, but none so exacting, erudite and insightful as LD. Let's call him LD, as he is a private man and will appreciate the alias. Safe to say, the demographic of this readership likely uses his product in some way, everyday. What follows is the saga of LD's theaters for which, by the time I am done with #3, (image is not actual theater) I will have driven over 10,000 road miles to complete.

Sharp 835 series Quatron LED LCD: Sharp Ups The Anti In Performance and Accuracy E-mail
Blog
Thursday, 24 March 2011
lc-60le835u_ho_logo.jpgA year ago, Sharp asked me to evaluate, test, and measure their LC-40LE810 Quatron panel. My findings were largely disappointing from a performance perspective. None of the selectable gammas were even remotely close to the 2.2 reference. The CMS (Color Management System) did not work correctly at all, an issue many of us technicians have been aware of for years with Sharp panels, and grayscale tracking was also subpar.

dvd.jpgSome time ago in this space, I predicted that the post-2010 Christmas season we would see the demise of our beloved DVD as a video format. I cited economies of scale for the Studios and the sheer perceived (and actual) value for the consumer, in the form of clearly obvious performance superiority in both audio and video as the drivers. It didn't happen. Here's why I think it didn't.

3dtvexample2.jpgNo, this isn't the I-told-ya-so column ... yet. Events have moved much faster than I predicted when I wrote a column on this topic about a year ago, but it seems we are headed for the same forecasted result.  In that column I pointed to lack of standards, lack of content, the glasses nuisance and the problematic usage model in the home as probable deterrents to wide (or any) adoption of 3D in your living room. Press releases received over the past few months from various independent surveys have "leaked" reports of disappointing sales from even the most conservative manufacturer's estimates.

SONY KDL55NX810 Edge Lit LED LCD Product Review E-mail
In Depth HDTV Reviews
Wednesday, 22 December 2010

sonykdl-55nx810.jpgPros: Good brightness and contrast ratio. Very accurate color gamut and grayscale tracking. Good feature set. 3D capable.

Cons: Somewhat limited calibration setup features. Lacks selectable color spaces, and a Color Management System (CMS) feature for fine tuning color space. The remote lacks backlighting.

To Buy or Not to Buy? Very good overall performance for an edge lit LED LCD. At a list price of $2,900, this panel represents a reasonably good value. Highly recommended for an edge lit LED LCD.
