Summary: I had been searching for a large flat screen TV for months, but couldn't figure out what features were most important. Finally, I read about the importance of High Refresh Rate in a large format TV. This was one of only a few products that offered true 240Hz refresh rate (normal is 'digital enhanced' 120Hz). Although the price was significantly higher for this feature, I think it is well worth having. The picture quality is spectacularly clear and crisp.
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. The 857 was my choice from the jump and I would have purchased the 80" but could not justify the $2000.00 up charge so I decided on the 70" and let me say "WOW!!" I am blow away by the picture.
Summary: Excellent TV with deeper black colors. Watching movies like Avengers and Transformers really lights up the screen with graphic content accessible in huge detail because of the rich Sharp colors and TV size. Best suited to watch games like Football and Hockey. Intuitive smart central quick launch which opens like a popup from below. This smart central allows you to watch regular TV while browsing through different apps.
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). Who knows if they even purchased this exact TV at all, and why would someone give a review on Amazon if they didn't buy it from Amazon and go through shipping experience, etc.
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! My 'Amazon experience' w/ this purchase is to much to describe here.
Summary: I haven't fully tuned in the color yet. But I was impressed with the setup, installation, packaging and out of the box experience. The sound is also really good. This is for my dad, so no stereo, just what comes out of the box. The picture looks amazing. I was a little suprised at the limited non-HDMI inputs.
Excerpt: Лучший телевизор для большой комнаты (смотреть минимум с 3 метров) но только для качественного контента.
Pros: Аватар 3D просто поразил, раньше даже не думал что телевизор может иметь такое великолепное качество изображения, добротная сборка, великолепная цветопередача обилие регулировок, отличное качество изображения при работе в паре с Pioneer BDP-450. Для качественного изображения требует качественного кабеля (я использую Belkin Pro HD 4000 2 метра(AV10023QP2M)). Энергосберегающий режим. Отличные сетевые функции, хороший встроенный плеер. Очень богатое функциональное оснаще...
Cons: Эфирное и кабельное ТV даже с SAT тюнера в стандартном разрешении не смотрится. Это телевизор только для качественного контента. Очень большой (для перевозки необходим минимум микроавтобус).
