Size: 80 Inch
I've lived with my 80" 857U for about a month now, so here are a few Pro/Con items on upgrading from a 70" 732 to the 80" 857U.


It's 10 inches larger!

It's 50% brighter -- excellent for a well lit room

The edge lighting doesn't produce the diamond pattern on bright, solid color backgrounds

The screen corners are not dark

The bezel is very small. It feels like it's nothing but screen.

It's a better looking TV from a furniture perspective.

It has 3D (not a big deal to me)

The 3D glasses are blue tooth so you don't need to keep them pointed at the TV to maintain sync
Better IR sensitivity. The 732 was a bit picky about having the remote pointed in the right place
10 point temperature calibration

The OOTB default color calibration wasn't too bad in Movie mode


The battery in the 3D glasses isn't rechargeable.It's necessary to buy a battery every 100 hours (according to the manual)

Flash lighting in the 4 corners. In my case, it actually looks more like corner clouding than traditional flash lighting. With my backlight set at -10 (at night), the corners aren't a problem, even in very dark scenes.

Like all edge lit sets, the center of the screen isn't as bright as the edges. However, it takes a long exposure photo to see this issue.

The Color Management has some issues. It's been impossible for me to get the blue primary calibrated correctly and still maintain the correct blue luminance.

The Motion Enhancement settings above 120 High seem to affect color and gamma in ways that I find unacceptable.

We had been holding off for a few years to purchase a new TV to replace our 60" Rear projection TV. (which served it's time perfectly for nearly 11 years).
After extensive research, comparisons, and reading the many reviews of this TV and other TV's in this category (Samsung 7100 series, Panasonic T60, Vizio M series, and Sony XBR)...the decision was made to go with this one due to: Cost value; Sharp's reputation for large screens, phyical appearance, and the calibration options.

Cost Value:
We were willing to pay the price for the Samsung unit, but this seemed like the better value being about $500 less.
On the other hand, it was $500 more than the Vizio M series which many people think is a better value.
But with more options to tweak, the Sharp was the final choice since we could make deaper adjustments if there were any complaints.

Many reviewers on various technical forums seem to think the Sharp 'Quattron' and 'Aquomotion' settings are just an unnecessary marketing ploy. Although that could be true to a degree, I'd rather have the option than not.

This TV is beautiful to look at even when it's off. It's like a nice piece of furniture. The Wallpaper option is also a nice touch if you have company and don't want the TV on. It's not make or break though.

The appearance off is nice, but it's about what the picture looks like when on that counts.
Out the box (connecting to Directv HD Receiver), the picture was ok, but definitely needed adjustments. Using settings from other tech sites and forums, I changed a few settings and was immediately pleased. (coming form a 60" 60hz LCD Rear pro...this was to be expected). The Directv picture was good,but it still wasn't 100% what I was expecting.

Below are some key points to consider and why I chose this HDTV (Sharp LC-70LE857).

1) First, in observing the ratings at the time of my review, 6 of 8 people who provided ratings less than 4 stars did not even buy their Sharp HDTV from Amazon (they are not listed as Amazon verified purchases). Who knows if they even purchased this exact TV at all, and why would someone give a review on Amazon if they didn't buy it from Amazon and go through shipping experience, etc. If you are going to write a review on Amazon (or give negative feedback), then you should at least have purchased it from Amazon. For all we know these folks could have bought a product off eBay labeled new that was actually refurbished, or they could work for a Sharp competitor. Just saying...Be cautious of any review on Amazon where the reviewer did not purchase the product from Amazon..

2) We purchased this HDTV in August 2013 off Amazon.com, and after more than 2 months we have had no issues.

3) Our first HDTV was a 46" in 2005, and by coincidence was a Sharp Aquos that had the best specs and ratings at the time. We have had no problems with that HDTV after 8 years, and at a time larger HDTVs were just coming out and I had several friends with bad experiences from other brands. Though I don't consider myself a "Sharp person" (no pun intended), Sharp has been a great experience for us.

4) My biggest concern about purchasing a 70" HDTV is MPG compression, and the distance we sit from the TV. To achieve greater through-put, broadcasters and/or the video content provider will increase the MPG compression, which also physical distorts the images just like JPG. It's particularly noticeable around sharp edges such as text on the screen.
