This TV replaced my 2-year old Samsung UN55EH6000FXZA 55" LED TV. Out of the box, I didn't notice any dead pixels, clouding, or bleeding. Initial step-by-step setup was easy to follow. I followed this calibration setting to bring out the best of what this TV can offer. No regrets...worth every penny!

Style Name: TVSize: 70-Inch
I was coming from a 55 inch LG passive 3D TV and was looking for something larger. I looked extensively at several models including this one, Sony W950, LG 70LB7100 and several Samsung ones. What won me over to Sharp (which I never owned before) was the size, picture quality and price. The screen is a true 10 bit, 240 Hz refresh rate. Q+ technology is interesting as it sharpens the picture to a 2k resolution. The TV accepts a 4k signal and displays it in 2k resolution. I watched some 4k YouTube videos and they looked great on this TV. Do keep in mind that due to the limitation of HDMI 1.4 standard you wont get more than 30fps on this TV, so no 4k gaming on this bad boy. Having said that, I have my gaming HTPC and a PS4 connected to it at 1080p setting and the picture looks great and the action moves fast, no ghosting. Same for sports. World Cup and NBA finals looked great on it. The colors pop and the picture is very sharp. Shows like Game of Thrones look great on it as well. I believe that the picture on this set looks sharper then on the rest of regular 1080p sets due to its upscaller to 2k resolution. I am not a professional TV reviewer, but the blacks looked good and the brightness was nice. There are a LOT of built in settings including the game mode and dynamic modes, but I normally leave it at standard mode. You can customize every element of the picture yourself though.

Now for negatives: its a large panel to light up with only an edge lit system (no local dimming). There is slight light bleed from one of the corners of the screen. Its visible in dark scenes, but doesn't bother me much to a point I want to lug a 120 pound TV back to the store. I was used to passive 3D and think its a more comfortable way to watch 3D vs the active system that this TV has (glasses are not included).

Style Name: TVSize: 60-Inch Verified Purchase
This is my third Sharp LCD TV. I have had both a 46" Sharp LCD bought in 2006, and a 60" Sharp LED bought in 2011. Both of those sets worked flawlessly - never any kind of problem - and I sold them with my house prior to an interstate move.

This is my first "smart" Sharp TV, and, of course, the first one with 3-D. The major consumer magazine suggested that if a buyer wanted a smart TV, the 3-D feature was probably going to come along with it, whether you wanted it or not. When I started shopping, I found that to be true.

This new set tops its predecessors in every way. The picture, which has always been great on the Sharps, is even better. The depth and sharpness of color is absolutely eye-watering. The only drawback to this set (and all other LED's) is the edge lighting which can produce a gray glow around the edges when watching a picture that is almost entirely black (i.e. shot at night). But to get away from this issue, you are forced to go to a plasma set and all of its drawbacks (horrible screen glare, and the need for an almost theater-dark room to enjoy the color). The Sharp LED has a matte screen so there is very little problem with glare. Even in a pretty brightly lit room, the picture still shows strong colors and contrast. I find that the picture quality and brightness remain strong even when viewed from an angle. Two very important things if you buy this set: during set-up you will get an option asking you whether this is a "home set-up" or a "store display". Make sure you select home set-up. Then I would suggest going into the video picture settings menu option, and change from "standard energy star" to either "dynamic" or "dynamic (fixed)". That is what causes the picture to come alive.

This TV is just amazing. I purchased two Vizio 70''s and got two duds. I upgraded to this bad boy and never looked back. There are some reviews that state that this TV is complicated, or hard to set up. This TV is totally programmable when it comes to user preferences. This thing is like a new computer. RIGHT CLICK ON EVERYTHING!!!! The color out of the box is heart stopping. The whites are pure, and when it fades to black, with the power light disabled, you cannot tell that it is powered up. The motion as one other reviewer put it, is as smooth as butter. The upconvert is fantastic. Yes upconvert is programmable! The web menu is nice and customizable! The speakers are there. I am not using them. The remote is not backlit. I used it to program my RF10, and took the batteries out of it and put it away. the stand is massive and appears very safe. I am not using that either, rather I hung it on the wall. There is a 25% washout degradation at 30 degrees off center. However, it is no big deal unless you wish to watch it from another room on an angle. The Sharp is very attractive and not too heavy. I am very happy with it so far.
