Summary: OK. How long should it last? This one made it about 9 1/2 months. Then one night a line appeared along the bottom of the screen. The next morning, 2 lines. The next morning, three lines. And now there is hardly a picture at all. Sharp is cooperative but SLOW. They want to see pics of the images and of course they need the serial number which is on the back of the tv mounted to the freaking wall.
Summary: Not as good as our 52" Sony that is 4 years old. And, it is not as good as our 42 inch Sharp that is 6 years old. Picture is somewhat jerky, movement is just not perfect. Seems to have difficulty with focus, however that may be in the camera and not in the TV. But, when it is good, it is very good. Added the Sony Sound Bar for a theater like listening experience.
Summary: This review is for the 70 inch. But first off I give Amazon 5 stars for this whole transaction. I bought this TV to replace my 3 year old Panasonic 63" Plasma. I loved that TV, but it was big, bulky and heated up the room. I had the chance to sell it to a friend for a great price and got caught up in the "bigger is better" mindset as I was also awaiting my PS4 to arrive, so I thought, "let's go all out and get a 70 incher".
Summary: A 5 out of 5. Right out of the box this TV has been picture perfect. Easy to set up. Easy to operate. Easily beats the pictures of my 55" Samsung & 50" Sony. I havent had to fiddle with any adjustments as there has been no need! One small complaint. Watching hockey or football the puck & ball can be occasionally blurry. Wish they had a 240hz model without 3D You won't regret this purchase.
