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.

Love the picture, features and no lip sync issues

I purchased this TV about a month ago and so far I am loving just about everything about the set. The split screen feature where you can watch TV and surf the internet is much more useful than I expected. The 3D with bluetooth glasses is also amazing. The picture of this set is far superior to my XBR2 Sony Bravia and I am having no lip sync issues what so ever. I also checked the AVSForum to see if anyone else is having this issue and couldn't find anyone reporting this. I think the previous reviewer reporting this may have a bad HDMI board and should get his TV replaced.

Out of the box, this TV is brilliant!!! The 12-million:1 Contrast with SuperBright LEDs makes all the difference in the world!!! I upgraded from the 757 to this model and the difference is NIGHT and DAY!!! Make the sacrifice and pay the extra for this top tier 70-inch model!! It compares to Sony and Samsung, I AM SUPER PLEASED and happy to know that Sharp offers these large screens at economical prices!! KUDOS!

An awesome TV visually…not that awesome audio wise

Date: Monday, September 02, 2013
There are plenty of other reviews by customers which are very detailed... all I have to complain about this TV is the lack of really good audio... my 6 year old Aquos 52 has much much better audio than this one... other than that... the TV is great... do yourself a favor and consider buying some external audio system for this TV... The 3D capability is really good....

Picture is great, Sound is good for a tv, 3D is better than I expected... The only issue I've had is sometimes the audio and video get out of sync and i have to hit pause then play or change the channel back and forth... It's a issue I can live with considering the TV is HUGE!

First time PaulTV buyer

By: Rick
Date: Wednesday, July 10, 2013
First time to buy something of this size over the web. I spoke with the sales person, extremely knowledgable and helpful. Nice to speak to someone that knows their products, unlike Frys where they are all clueless! They did not even know what DLNA was, and guaranteed me the TV would not find or be able to access my WD Live home drive. Needless to say, the rep at Paul's made it clear there would be no issues and DLNA was support. In addition, he up-sold me on the Sharp and the model over the Samsung, but not pushy about it, just informative. In the end, it looks amazing, to the point it often looks fake. I will buy again from Paul's because they know what they are selling and back the products.

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.

White Lines In Letterbox Movies

By: moviefan
Date: Thursday, June 20, 2013
Love this TV so far. This version just came out in March and has the latest technology in parts. One thing to consider if you are a moviephile like me, though. Any letterbox movie Bluray or broadcast will have an irritating white line imbedded around the picture in dot by dot viewing mode. The only way to to correct this is to switch to zoom mode, taking half of the movie away with it . It has to do with what pixels are being displayed and what the TV detects. Sharps says it is in within the specs and that all letterbox movies should be displayed in full screen mode to remove the white lines. This sucks. If the movie is in letterbox , it's for a reason. Zoom up Ben-Hur? Chariot scene is lost. My Samsung DLP TV never had this problem. Be warned, fellow moviephiles. Other than that, love the TV so far.
