Happy with this TV
My family is VERY happy with this purchase. My original choice was to go with the 65 inch Samsung UN65C8000 and later the UN65D8000. While Samsung makes great TV's, I really did not care to pay extra for 3-D which I will never use. The more I read about the Samsungs, the more concerns I had about spending $5000 for a TV whose technology could be outdated in a few short years. I was really glad to find this Sharp TV which seems to have hit the sweet spot for me between size, features, quality and price. With the Sharp I also got 5 extra inches of screen for around $2000 less than the Samsung. But the proof is in the picture quality and this TV has an excellent picture. Unlike the edge lighting used on the Samsung, the Sharp has full arrray LED back lighting. This makes the Sharp not as thin as the Samsung, but gives it a more uniform picture. HD is simply stunning. Last but not least, my living room is almost all windows so one of the biggest selling points for me was the semi-gloss screen on the Sharp TV. This makes for less of the distracting reflections compared to a glossy screen TV like the Samsung. In sum, I think Sharp has a real winner here. If you have the space and enough seating distance to the TV, I think you will be very satified.
