We have had this TV for ONE MONTH. Here is my assessment of the TV so far:
SIZE: Our new home seats us 13 FEET away from the TV. According to distance standards, 80" is easily within acceptable range. At first, it seemed really huge and I was concerned my eyes wouldn't be able to follow the whole screen but after having it in place for 1 month, there was no need for my concern because the size is absolutely perfect!
SOUND: The sound on this TV is its only true weakness. Get a sound bar or surround sound! HANDS DOWN, JUST DO IT. We have a sound bar that's 7 years old and works perfectly with it.
PICTURE: The picture is AWESOME! I had some issues with it at first, because I was watching netflix and it was a little fuzzy and I was so bummed but it turned out that I needed to set my streaming quality to HIGH with netflix and now its super duper clear. The only issues arise when like 100 million people are streaming at peak times and it reduces my streaming quality. The soap opera effect was also kind of weird to watch but I realized that turning it completely off GREATLY REDUCES CLARITY. My settings below adjust for this so that the soap opera effect is low, but clarity stays high.
COLOR: When this TV first arrived I was very skeptical about changing from plasma to LED. I loved our plasma TV's coloring and black levels and when this first arrived the stock settings were horribly bluish, the blacks were navy and I was ready to return it. My husband, on the other hand, fell in love with the TV and encouraged me to mess with the settings to figure out how I could fix the coloring before making a decision. He totally doesn't see or care about color like me.

Size: 80 Inch
I spent over $3000 on the Sharp Aquos 80 inch TV. Except for an inability to follow a football or baseball without making multiple images it was good for 6 months. Then 23 white blotches developed on the screen whenever it was dark. I contacted Aquos and dealt with a very professional and helpful representative who told me if it couldn’t be fixed I would be sent a new one. It took a month for them to acknowledge the set was unrepairable. I was then informed they would not send a new set. They would wait until one of their sets was returned and they would refurbish the set. They also had no idea when it would be ready. In the meantime the set was close to unwatchable. 5 weeks later I called again and was told they would make me a “deal” - they would send the refurbished set when they got it and they had no idea when this would be. I was furious, this was a warranty repair. I tried to get the employees name and address so I could have my attorney start a lawsuit. I was then given to someone else who said the request for the refurbished set was never sent in and I would get it in 1-2 weeks. 3 weeks later I got called that they would deliver a set, but unlike the one I paid for it wouldn’t be able to access NETFLIX or the internet. I spent over 6 hours on the phone with these people.

Once you go with a large TV, it's hard to go back to a smaller unit! This thing is HUGE. With viewing distances under 10 ft., 80 inches may be overkill. DirecTV/cable broadcasts that are heavily compressed do not look that great on the TV due to the artifacts, especially when seen up close. For things like Netflix and Blu-ray, they look great even from around 8 ft.

Right now, 4K TVs are not worth the cost of admission, especially when there is so little media available that support 4K at the moment. So instead of spending $12k+ for a large 4K TV, you may as well enjoy this TV for a few years, then upgrade to a 4K unit when there's enough content to support it and the TVs come down in price.

As far as the variations between the different Sharp models, I went with the 650 based off of negative CNET reviews of the higher Qurattron models. The color accuracy on the 650 is not perfect, but it's certainly good enough, especially for the price point (and size). With a few tweaks to the colors under settings using a blue filter, I was able to get the colors to a pretty solid place. The other recommendation is to turn off Film mode in Movie settings as it makes the compositions look awful.

For games, the unit has around 58ms of input lag. While acceptable for most people for most games, you will notice it if you are very sensitive to it. For games that require frame counting like fighting games, this will have a noticeable effect as you'll be approximately 3-4 frames behind at 60fps. But for most games, it should be within an acceptable/tolerable limit.

If 3D is a must have, get the higher models as the 650 does not support 3D.

I'll be honest with you. I did not buy this TV from amazon.com. I bought it from Sams Club because it was $100 cheaper and I could get it into my pickup truck then and there. However, this TV is so big that sat out in my garage for 3 weeks until I could get some friends over to help me set it up! It's huge. First and foremost. Big. Big. Big. Picture quality is spectacular. Brightness and pixilization flawless. I'm completely satisfied and I am not always so flattering in my reviews. Some reviews I read were not flattering. I'm not sure why. I have had no issues at all. I did read that the customer service was good but for now I have no need to worry about that. I have the biggest TV on the block and am very happy with my decision. Bright. Even lighting over the entire huge screen. No problem with pixilization on high def TV. It's not 3d but great price and wonderful quality. You can keep reading other reviews if you want but this is the one.
