Summary: Stay as far away from Sharp TV's as you can. I bought a 70" AQUOS and it lasted 18 months. Initially it did have a great picture but not worth buying a new TV every 18 months. Their Aquos Advantage service is horrendous, I had to submit my info, resubmit and then do it all over again.
Summary: Sharp Televisions suck, sure the picture is excellent, but hundreds, maybe thousands of people are having screen issues, no wonder Hisense is taking over Sharp's TV business, they will be inheriting a lemon on that realm, in all of us unhappy customers.
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: Arrived today on time. Set up was fast and easy. It is as good as I hoped it might be considering I have a similar smaller Samsung that I considered to be perfect. This 80 inch Sharp picture is just as good and the additional 34 inches is outstanding. The only downside is the weight and the price.
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: This TV is so large that the wall hanging bracket is heavier than my 65" plasma TV. Other than the fact that this TV decides for itself where it wants to go, the product is outstanding. I am no a/v geek so I'm just running it on the default settings and the performance is spectacular.
Summary: I purchased this TV about a month ago and so far I am loving just about everything about the set. The split screen feature where you can watch TV and surf the internet is much more useful than I expected. The 3D with bluetooth glasses is also amazing.
