Summary: I purchased this tv in May of 2013. pros, great picture, tons of ways to customize, fast start up, great price for the size and features, I simply love the look of the sleek silver frame compared to lower end model (black frames).
Summary: I'll be brief and to the point. Sharp is the worst company EVER to do business with! Six months after purchasing this set a gray bar appeared across the screen. Called Sharp and was told to take pictures of the problem and send them in. They determined that they would send a refurbished set to me.
Summary: This is my 1st review and I would not normally write as I feel some reviewers just have an axe to grind. That being said let me say I am extremely happy with the Sharp 70" 857 that was delivered via CEVA through Amazon.
Summary: very bad picture quality with useless 3D images Very bad quality remote control with a big fat Netflix button in the middle of the remote which will make any one to accidently press the button and take them away from what ever they are watching to Netflix.
Summary: We finally got rid of our tube high def tv and replaced with the 8 series sharp. It was down to samsung, vizio and sharp. We decided against the other two due to the glossy finish on the screen. The sharp 8 series has a matte finish and ultra right panel.
Great TV... feature-packed and nice picture. The remote, on the other hand...

Summary: So far I'm loving this TV. But I HATE the remote. The picture quality is outstanding - HDTV and video games are crisp and vibrant. The 3D works pretty well too, but the availability of 3D media and supported video games is pretty thin. Assassin's Creed 3 on the PS3 looked impressive in 3D.
Amazed at the picture quality on the 70" 857 HDTV from Sharp!

Summary: Below are some key points to consider and why I chose this HDTV (Sharp LC-70LE857). 1) First, in observing the ratings at the time of my review, 6 of 8 people who provided ratings less than 4 stars did not even buy their Sharp HDTV from Amazon (they are not listed as Amazon verified purchases).
Summary: I've had thisTV 4 a couple months now--so far, reeeally good; lots of features i've not yet figured out! Great picture, and a very good look in my rm -- wall mounted w/ Bose's very sleek theater sound bar audio system, movies 'n football at its best!
