Summary: Bought this TV in Sept 1, 2012 for $3899.00 and price is still the same. This is an awesome TV, I would buy another one if I have room in my house. You don't need to go to movie theatre anymore, TRUST ME. All you need is a sound surround system and watch movies and eat popcorn right in you living room. I love it, it's been 2 years and hopefully it will last me 5 years. My whole families loves this TV, when folks come over they say WOWWWW.
Summary: If you like a BIG TV with a nice picture, this is the one for you. Right out of the box the picture was great. Very little tweaking. And it is fairly easy to set up. The audio is so so, but you can't expect much more out of such small speakers. I just use my Sony 5.1 surround sound.
Summary: The TV quit working after 18 months. Sharp explained that it was out of warranty so I get stuck with the bill. So long story short, Sharp won't stand behind their product. Personally, I figure a $3500 television should work for longer than 18 months but Sharp disagrees.
Summary: The TV arrived in perfect condition. We use it in our conference room for Powerpoint and video presentations. It works 100 times better than our old projection system. It is beautiful and clear. We have it connected to a dedicated desktop computer so presenters only need to plug in their flash drive and go. The only downside is that red laser pointers do not work and the green is barely visible. It is still very impressive!
Summary: I love, love love this TV, it is big, but then you knew that - but really 80 inches finally got me to that theater feeling. I've had this TV for more than a year now and it has performed flawlessly. I should add that I do not use the built in speakers or tuner, just have it plugged in to my HT amp by HDMI.
Summary: It's large, bright colors, sound and surround sound is incredible. It's smart TV capability is excellent, in addition to it's Wifi and web capabilities. I can't ask for a better, bigger TV set. You have to have a big room to put this one in.
Summary: Without question, this is the best 80 inch Led out there now. I looked at the 90, but the picture was far inferior to this. I have DIRECT TV, PS3, XBOX 360 and my PC hooked up to it. 4 HDMI ports, all running HDMI. PS3 looks the best for HD movies. My direct TV is a bit disappointing for sports. I swear it's the signal though, because everything else I have hooked up to it looks magnificent.
Summary: I received this bad boy this morning. It was delivered by 2 very nice, professional gentlemen. The picture quality through my dvr is great, but it is wonderful when watching blurays like Skyfall, which made the picture look immaculate. I have another 60" Sharp and it has been great as well going on 3 years, even though it's an LCD. Your seating position should be about 10-12 feet away from the screen and you will be fine!
Summary: T.V. was defective. Because of the cold weather, you can't test until the unit warms up. By then the driver is long gone. Too heavy to set up and tear down and re-package to send it back. Wait for warmer weather and test while the driver is still there.
