    Quattron™ 3D
    Sharp 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.

    This LED has an advanced 1080p pixel structure that brings you the most amazing images in High Definition.

    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 this with the process for their 8 series LEDs. This technology takes the new high-brightness panel and intelligent contrast engine and enhances the brightness of the bright objects on the screen while maintaining the black levels on the rest of the image. The result is a more brilliant, more contrasted picture.

    240Hz Refresh Rate
    240Hz technology delivers a crystal-clear image even during fast-motion scenes. Experience all of the action on your LC-80LE857U Smart LED with one of the most advanced panel refresh rates available today.

    The 8 series also features Sharp's AquoMotion 960 backlight scanning technology that effectively quadruples the refresh rate to limit ghosting and other issues caused by fast-moving scenes in LED TVs. The backlight scans the image in 4 separate zones and inserts a black frame to reduce motion blur.

Sharp’s Best

Expert Review by a Paul's Pro

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

By: rs808
Date: Wednesday, May 08, 2013
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.

TOP TIER, COMPARABLE TO SAMSUNG AND SONY

By: Dwight
Date: Saturday, April 13, 2013
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!

GREAT PICTURE

An awesome TV visually…not that awesome audio wise

By: Carlos
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....

I LOVE THIS TV

By: Guy Wells
Date: Tuesday, August 13, 2013
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!

Expert Review by a Paul's Pro

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.
