Summary: For people craving a colossal flat-screen TV who don't want a plasma or a projector, the 70-inch Sharp LC-70LE73U series LED-based LCD offers very good picture quality, especially in bright rooms.
Pros: The Sharp LC-70LE73U is bigger than just about any other mainstream flat-panel TV, and a strong overall value. It delivers solid picture quality, with better screen uniformity than an edge-lit LED-based LCD, while its matte screen and high potential light output make its bright-room picture quality superior to that of a large plasma. It comes with excellent help and support options and built-in Wi-Fi, and consumes less power than plasma models.
Cons: This 70-inch LED-based LCD is too large to fit in many living rooms and too expensive for most buyers' TV budgets. Its black levels, uniformity, and off-angle picture quality aren't as good as those of many large-screen plasmas. Its separate interfaces for apps and widgets can be confusing and its exterior styling is somewhat generic.
