Summary: I've had this TV for about 6 months now and I'm very pleased with the quality of the picture. I'm a little disappointed that this TV can not play audio from a .mkv file and it does not have a function to swap 3D frames from left to right. If you don't know what these two features are, then you likely won't care about them. These two issues did not contribute to my lower rating. As I state in the title, the picture is beautiful and 3D quality is great. However..
Summary: Not as Sharp as I like. I bought this for my parent. IF you want a 70 inch display, and don't want to spend to much money then you have no choice. The usb to connect a thumb drive/ external hard drive worked but not as well as my 65 inch LG passive TV. The LG tv will play most movies file mvk, avi, mpg3. The LG picture quality is clearer. 3d glass is $5 or use the one from the movie theater. Sharp 3d glass is $30 and bulkier to wear.
Summary: My TV has been set up for almost a week now and my son and I just love it but I'm having problems with this lip sync issue. It's annoying to me but my son just ignores it. I'm not sure how this can be corrected. I have PolkAudio Cinema Speakers and subwoofer with a Onkyo Receiver. Does anyone know if this is a setup problem or an Sharp TV problem? And if it's a set up problem, how do I fix it?
Summary: I actually purchased the slightly different 8470u model exclusively carried at the big club stores and I purchased mine a week ago. The only difference that I'm aware of between the 8470u and 847u is that the 8470u comes with two pair of active 3D glasses and it has the Aquamotion 480mHz option. They are the same price, so it was a no-brainer to get the one with extra stuff.
Summary: I started my search for a 60"+ LED with a pretty open mind. I've had a work horse 55" Sony rear projection for 7 years which hasn't needed anything but one replacement bulb and have been a passive observer of all the wonderful technological improvements in the interim. I finally decided to do something after moving to a new place and wanted to keep the floor space open by wall mounting.
