This Sharp AQUOS Quattron 70"LC-70LE735U means that when you want your TV to go big, you go BIG. This super thin LCD television is more than just huge; it also features Quattron technology for brighter, more vivid colors, 3D capabilities, built-in Wi-Fi and connectivity to apps like Netflix, CinemaNow and more! Chris Hardwick joins Candace Bailey as they review the 70" TV.

What You Need To Know

  • The Sharp AQUOS Quattron 3D LED TV is huge.
  • To put this in perspective, this TV has 62% more viewing surface than a 55".
  • It comes with a very solid stand, which it should because it weighs 122 lbs.
  • The TV has a 120 Hz refresh rate with motion enhancement.
  • Sharp has done a really great job with this, making it the most subtle we have seen yet.
  • Once again we are seeing apps on televisions and Sharp has added some apps that are accessible through the Apps button 
  • on the remote.
  • The selection wasn't as varied as the Samsung Smart TV experience and their version is much simpler.
  • The TV comes with a few preloaded apps like Facebook, Netflix and Blockbuster.
  • As far as we're concerned, the simpler, the better.
  • The 3D capabilities are great, which come with what Sharp calls "ultra bright" LED.
  • We usually find 3D to be dark and muddy, so we were pleasantly surprised by the brightness.
  • Overall, the TV has an excellent 3D picture.
  • The color reproduction is great.
  • Sharp is now known for their Quattron technology, which means they have added yellow (a fourth color where most TVs 
  • makes a picture with only 3).
  • The addition of yellow increases the amount of color possibilities.
  • It also enables higher resolution images with less jagged diagonal lines.
  • The motion enhancement was really one of the most pleasant surprises of the year.
  • It combines the 120 Hz refresh rate with the 120 backlight refresh to give you "240 Hz" aquo-motion.
  • The result was smooth with little to no artifacts.
  • The TV also has ambient light sensors which will automatically adjust the backlight based on the room lighting.
  • We were really impressed with the clarity and color of the television.

Price

  • $3,200 on Amazon.

Rating

  • 5 Seals of Approval out of 5. (How do we rate gadgets?)
  • This is the biggest TV we have ever reviewed.
  • The 3D image is the best we've seen and the ultra brilliant LED really does brighten it up.
  • The 2D image is also fantastic and the 240 Hz motion enhancement makes for the smoothest picture we've seen yet.

    Any internet connectivity on this one? What about the 3d glasses? Are they passive? Comfortable? What about the number of inputs? Can I wall-mount it?

    I know you guys were having fun, but there's real information that you ought to have gotten across.

    the 4th colour thing is a lie!

    A) Cameras only record in RGB (red blue green) signal. so all tv's only pick up RGB. you cant get a signal that isn't RGB.

    B) even if cameras could record in RGBY the human eye can only see in RGB. in the lighting colour pallet (this is how we see colour. NOT IN PIGMENT COLOUR PALLET [RYB]). How we get yellow/orange is by combining Red and Green (more red in the combination = orange, more green = yellow). so hypothetically if yellow was introduced into the lighting pallet as a main colour, it would throw off all the other colours.

    this is still a good tv off its other merits but don't believe that it has a 4th colour. that is a bold face lie!

    This video was just awesome. Why the heck though did Kevin change it. Doesn't make sense? Does he fear that if his parents could go back in time he wouldn't be born?, or is he mad also for the fact that the Delorean electic car will cost $100k.

    Just give it a few years, 70" will be the standard, and they'll be sold for $500 on black friday. Chris Hardwick, love the Back to the Future trivia! I haven't seen it in so long, i don't remember any of what I just saw, I'll have to re-watch them.
