Summary: My first super large TV purchase and it did not go too well. This 80 inch TV is enormous and when I first saw and opened the box, I was in love. I put it on the stand and it covered most of the wall. Purely a wow factor. I got things hooked up and began viewing. I started with a BRD and thought this is fairly good. Not as good I as I was hoping though. I then tried some HD channels from my DirecTV box and also some standard channels. These were worse.
Summary: Our Sharp tv arrived defective right out of the box. As a result of poor quailty assurance and defective manufacturing practice. For 9 days we have had repeated calls to Sharp to reboot, reprogram the tv and we still have the same problem. Garbled video and loss of picture sync and loud clicking sound. We are scheduled to have a service person come tomorrow, but only after calling Sharp almost everyday about this problem.
