Summary: This was a great TV. By "was", after a few months a line appeared across the TV. Contacted Sharp, they advised the model was no longer available so they were going to upgrade a replacement. Sent a current year 3D version. Still going strong after 1.5 years with zero issues. Helluva picture (never even use the 3D).
Summary: I bought this TV after seeing it in several stores. In the store the picture looked very good. When I got it home the picture quality was ok in HD, not great. In SD it was horrible. Luckily Amazon is terrific about their returns. I would NOT buy this TV. I bought a Samsung PN60E8000 plasma that was 100% a better TV for around the same price.
Summary: This tv is now over a year old and we still get compliments on it. The Quattron system is amazing, so much clearer than a regular tv without it. A blu-ray will knock your socks off with it's absolutely beautiful lifelike picture. When they offer Quattron in a larger size than 70 we will get it. Haven't used the wireless functions so can't comment on that.
No real internet access, poor soft keyboard navigation

Summary: I've bought this about a year ago from East Coast Electronics. The product is great except one major, big flaw. I'm not sure if this is made on purpose by Sharp or not, but you don't have real browser experience with this TV. Yes, you can connect it to your home internet via wireless, but you are limited by accessing only specific widgets which sharp offers, like MSNBC, weather channel, some sport channel and few applications like Netflix.
Summary: In a word, this TV is spectacular. The picture is so crisp, clear, and brilliant. I couldn't wait to un-wrap it and watch an HD channel, I wasn't disappointed. If you don't have a 70-inch screen or above, you have to know this is a life-style change. The picture is huge and in your face (I'm sitting 11ft back), and extremely sharp.
Summary: I didn't buy this TV from Amazon but I still made a good deal. I've had the TV since May and so far it's met all my needs and I can't wait for football season. It has a crisp edge regarding the screen colors and the black to color or to white. For a large screen I am very pleased with the color contrast. I suggest that if you are going to get this TV, you need to have a large enough room so that you are sitting at least 15 feet from the screen.
