Summary: The picture quality is great, not the best compared to Samsung but you have to calibrate the TV out of the box. That's the only reason I gave the TV 4 stars instead of 5, the remote is also a little big for my comfort (I got used to it by now). I replaced a Samsung LED with this one due to the poor build quality and constant TV problems from Samsung.
Summary: Like many of you I read and re-read review after review on this TV and were a bit hesitant because of the mixed reviews. We were also debating between this model and the new 2013 70LE757 model. We were saving close to $800 between the two (we live in Canada so we pay a bit more then our American prices). In the end we decided to go with the 2012 model and just picked it up yesterday evening and unboxed it.
Summary: Great picture. I use this in our home theater. The smart tv features are what led us to this one. It sees the USB movie server with no issue and we also stream from Vudu without issue. It's nice - the only reason it isn't 5 stars is because it doesn't have bluetooth.
Summary: I was replacing a 60" Samsung plasma with this tv and was primarily looking for more size and 3d. The picture quality is not quite at the same level as my plasma but I'm still happy with it. Out of the box i wasnt impressed with the picture at all but after using a calibration dvd the picture was very close to my plasma when compaired side to side.
Summary: It was shipped out the same day. I had problem with local delivery. The big TV was laid flat on the side instead of standing up. I asked the man about the drop sensor. He had no idea that there is one. I couldn't find one. Maybe it was ripped out because it was dropped. The picture is great except it has one blue vertical line. I contacted Sharp, and they will send a new one as soon as they have in stock. Beside the line, the picture is great.
Summary: I originally bought the Samsung 60 inch model 7050 from Costco and I was very impressed with the picture and overall quality; I did have issues with the Samsung; like I could not get the Audio Return Channel to work. Since I bought the Samsung we remodeled our theater room and the new arrangement allowed for a bigger display.
