Summary: I've been in the market to replace my aging Samsung 56" DLP. As far as 70" models go this one is great. It is last years model but nothing has changed from 2012 to 2013 models. I picked this one as a Sharp Refurbished unit and saved $600+. My price was $1399.99 TOTAL. The picture is great. As all flat panels go, the audio is par but if you have a 70", you will most likely have an external sound system (at a bare minimum a soundbar/woofer).
Summary: This is my first review that I have written. This is actually going to be a pleasure to write because most of my experiences are not to great. This is the best move that I have made. Prior to buying this Sharp 70 inch & model, I had purchased a 60 inch Sharp led TV. After owning it for several months I gave in to buy this 70 inch Sharp. It was always in the back of my head anyway, I should have bought the 70 inch, over & over again.
Summary: At the time of delivery, I took the TV out and plugged in to the wall to confirm that TV arrived in working condition. This is especially important in winter where LCD panel can freeze and crack during shipping. I turned the TV on and the screen came on with Sharp setup menu. So, I signed my delivery papers and started to mount the TV on the wall. At 86lb, this TV was light and easy to handle with my wife.
Summary: Have had this item for about 2 weeks now. Item was delivered pretty promptly after ordering through Amazon. Plan on haning it on the wall but so far I have it on it's stand. The TV itself is nice to look at, gloss black framing the screen. An absolute breeze to hook up and set up, it literally took me all of 5 minutes to be watching TV and DVD. This item replaced my old Mitsubishi WD62-725 and it far superior so far.
Summary: Wonderful TV. Picture quality is excellent. Direct integration with youtube, netflix, vudu etc. Other than having issues with netflix integration (asks for login almost egvery day), it's amazin
Big picture, bad motion artifacts, ruins the viewing

Summary: I have been using this for a couple of months now an I must say that if nothing is moving, the picture is very good. There is some adjustment time needed to get good picture quality but I would say average amount of adjustments needed. Built in speakers are mediocre and somewhat tinny, overall OK but nothing special. The problem with this set and what makes it unacceptable is the motion artifacts.
Summary: Will make this short and sweet, because I did extensive research before considering a TV. You cannot find a better TV out there currently for the price in my honest opinion. Im a straight foward guy who simply wanted a bigger, nicer TV for football season, and didnt want to spend a fortune. For 2 grand, you will not find a better TV. The picture is very "Sharp", and the colors are amazing. There are several preset picture settings which you can cusomize to your liking.
Summary: ** 2014 ** 3 years later and still going strong - hasn't given us a bit of trouble - flawless My Dad has this beauty in his livingroom. Watched the golf on it and it was amazing. Only surprise was for the price I would think he would get a 2 year warranty instead of the standard 12 month.
