At this price I should LOVE it...but I don't quite. Still pretty good though
18 December 2012
Summary: I did extensive research before deciding to go with this Sharp 70-inch TV. The other options I considered were the Samsung 65-inch and the 70-inch Smart TV's, both of which were significantly more expensive (65-inch was $3100 and a little small for my living room wall, and 75-inch was an insane $9k, compared to this Sharp for $2399). Price and size were major deciding factors for me. For the most part, the TV is a great choice.
Summary: I bought this display a couple of months ago to replace a well used 57" RPTV. I looked at both the 70" and 80". I REALLY wanted to buy the 80" but to my eye, the picture just wasn't as good as the 70". It easily mounted on the wall with a "bargain" mount as these displays don't weigh that much. I quickly learned that I am not a fan of the video "enhancements" this unit offers, so I disabled them. Display is capable of a very bright picture without bleeding whites.
Summary: Great picture. I don't even notice motion blur at the 120hz clock speed. Only complaint is that the viewing angle is sub-optimal. I'd say that if you get past 45 degrees, you'll notice significant picture degradation.
