Summary: This is the worst 4K TV money can buy. The TV works great for a little while. The TV died after 3 months and the second one died 2 months after that. Sharp was very unhelpful in getting this fixed or replaced and acted like I should be grateful that they were even taking my phone call.
Summary: Don't buy Sharp products, they may seem like a good deal but a product is no good if the company doesn't honor it's warranties.
Pros: It's big, and ultra-high def.
Cons: I had this TV for 5 weeks before a wide blue line appeared vertically down the screen. I called newegg and they declined to swap it because it was 1 week past the 30 day return policy, I filed a claim with Sharp, which they accepted and now I've been getting the run around for 3 months. I've had ...
Summary: Excellent picture, as expected. Good upscaling. Some quirks, like sound muting without an instruction, had to unplug and reboot the system to get it back on. Takes about ten minutes. Also remote failed after first day, can only control via the Direct TV remote.
Summary: 9/26/14 Ordered this 4/6/14. Very nice picture, great up conversion & perfect size for the living room. Loved how nice youtube videos looked on it. First week of September 2014 this started shutting down & flashing the dreaded 2-5 code.
Summary: Couple of things to consider before you buy. I will list them as Pros and Cons. Pros: 1. Great picture quality. 4K is 4K if you can find content. There are a few 4K streams on youtube that you can search for but it is compressed. However the PQ looks great. 2.

1 July 2014
Summary: Don't buy a Sharp product unless your retailer will take it back during the entire warranty period. I purchased the LC70UD1U, which is a 4K 3D TV, from an Independent media company in Early September 2014, but the TV was for use in a home that we purchased and remodeled so it wasn't really used...
