Full HD Active 3DIf you think that all 3D is the same then you are mistaken. Sharp’s Full HD Active 3D produces a crisper and brighter image; a 3D experience that will blow you away.
Quattron™ 3DSharp Quattron™ is here to make you conform and accept 3D in your household. With the addition of the yellow sub-pixel, light is able to pass through more easily, you’ll get a brighter image than standard 3D. Sharp Quattron™ 3D will ensure you have the brightest, clearest picture at all times. Since active shutter glasses dim the image the extra “natural” brightness, from the yellow sub-pixel, makes active 3D even more viable.
2D/3D SwitchSharp 3D LED TVs come with 2 pairs of AN3DG40 Active 3D glasses. Your Active 3D glasses allow you to switch from 3D to 2D any time you without affecting other viewers in the room. With Sharp 3D, everyone gets what they desire.

With Sharp Quattron™ you’ll get a more powerful picture with brighter yellows, deeper blues, and richer golds. Quattron™ color technology adds 2 million yellow sub-pixels, creating a more realistic picture with greater detail and brightness, without sacrificing color accuracy.
AQUOS LED Full HD 1080p DisplayThis 70" TV has an advanced 1080p pixel structure that brings you the most amazing images in High Definition. The AQUOS Smart LED uses photo-alignment technology that is made to let more light through in bright scenes and block out more light in dark scenes. The 1080p AQUOS Smart TV has a 12 million: 1 contrast ratio and creates an image so real you can see the difference.
Super Bright™The latest addition to Sharp’s image-enhancing technologies. Super Bright works similar to many dimming technologies, the engine scans the image and dims the darker areas, Sharp reversed the dimming process with the 8 series. Instead of dimming the darker areas, it brightens the lighter areas for a more briliant, more contrasted picture.
240Hz Refresh Rate240Hz technology delivers a crystal-clear image even during fast-motion scenes. Experience all of the action on your LC-70LE857U Smart LED with one of the most advanced panel refresh rates available today.
AquoMotion 960Sharp’s AquoMotion 960 backlight scanning technology quadruples the effective refresh rate of the 8 series. The scanning backlight essentially inserts a black frame after every image to reduce motion blur and other issues caused by fast-moving scenes in LED TVs.
Auto Brightness Control (OPC)Get a more beautiful and comfortable picture and cut power consumption with the Sharp AQUOS’ Auto Brightness Control. Auto Brightness automatically adjusts the picture brightness of your Sharp LED.

Ultra-Slim FrameIt’s no surprise that this 70" TV features a new frame that’s thinner around the screen and slimmer in depth, offering more screen in less space. The bezel edges are diamond-cut to complement the TV’s slim, lightweight aluminum frame.
In this size range (60-90) sharp is still the king. no one comes close to matching price and proformance
This is what Sharp is shooting for…. the very large TVs with good value. They definitely succeed at the very large sizes as there are few competitors in a reasonable price range.
If you’re looking for the best 1080p big TV’s the 857’s are it!
Great tv in size and when hooked up to blu ray, could be better on other sources.
If you are looking for a great TV with a reasonable price this is the TV for you. This TV comes in 60, 70 and 80”. The new slim design looks great and makes it look sleek. Picture is not the best but is adequate with bright panel and Quatron technology to improve picture quality. I would recommend this TV.
These TVs are HUGE!! If you are looking to get your drive in movie theater feel, these sets are for you! However, you do give up some quality with the sheer size of these TVs.
These are my favorite real large TVs this year. Great quality, great price. Huge improvement one year removed.
Good picture and fully loaded with all the features.
