Summary: The Sharp LC-70LE857 was my first big screen purchase. Price seemed reasonable, given the size. However, right out of the box there was a dead pixel in the center of the screen. Admittedly, one pixel is hard to see but, once you know its there, you can't help but see it.
Summary: First of all, I am happy with the majority of this tv. The picture is on par with others out there. The apps can actually be useful and convenient. However, the audio and video being in-sync is for me kind of a bare minimum piece of functionality for a television.
