Customer Reviews for LC70LE735U
Review 1 for LC70LE735U
Amazing size – amazing picture
September 5, 2011
, Tampa, Florida
Have owned this TV for three weeks now and could not be more pleased with the picture quality. Based on my research and what I saw in local showrooms my budget was over $5000 for a smaller size TV. Then I saw the SHARP LC70LE735U – I purchased it and couldn’t be happier with my decision. We have our TV room arranged to watch from approximately 20 ft. away ( further than the ideal distance) and my wife, who watches sports constantly, every sport, says she can see the beads of sweat on the pitcher (Tampa Bay Rays). The sound is very good (I will still purchase an additional set of speakers, but one is not really needed). Because the price was so reasonable, I did purchase a long extended warranty, 3 sets of 3D glasses, and a second smaller (50”) plasma set and still came under the budget I originally had for the one TV.

It seems great so far. I was wondering when the 3D glasses will be available as they are backordered on the sharp web page.

My LC70LE735U Experience
November 23, 2011
, Trenton, NJ
Cons: no 3d glasses are included
My current TV, up until last week, had been the 65" Mitsubishi High Definition Rear Projection TV, model # WS-65813 Diamond Series. It was Mitsubishi's top of the line TV at the time and arguably one of the best performing HDTV's in 2004, #when I purchased it new#, and it is still working like new today. I'm one of those people who didn't need a new TV, but wanted a new, slim TV so I spent the past few months researching which one to buy. After spending countless hours on forums and reading endless reviews on different models and after viewing many of the contenders in person, I chose the Sharp Aquos LC-70LE735U and am so glad that I did.
I ordered the TV and am happy to report that it arrived in perfect condition six days ago without so much as a mark on the box it came in. I don't know if it is because I am getting older or not, but I must say the TV felt heavier than the 99 pounds it is listed at.
Anyway, on the same day that I ordered the TV I had measured the height from the floor in my living room to where my face is located while sitting on the couch. I then used that measurement to calculate how high of a stand I would need so that my face would be perfectly centered in the screen of this TV during normal viewing. Based on those measurements I purchased a cabinet that stood exactly 17" high. When I put the TV on top it, using the stand that came with the TV, it lined up perfectly for my seated viewing position on the couch, with my eyes being dead center to the height of the screen. From the TV screen to my face is 10 feet and for me it seems like a perfect distance for both regular & 3D viewing of a TV of this size.
Moving on to the calibration of this new TV. The TV worked great right out of the box, but I know that a properly calibrated TV gives a superior picture. Because of this I researched all of the available calibration DVD's that were available for self calibration of a TV.. I am aware that this is not as good as paying professional to do it, but for my purpose, it will suffice since my viewing preferences may not exactly match that of a hired calibrator. I decided to go with the new Disney WOW Calibration Disc in Blu-Ray. It is in stock & very reasonably priced at several online retailers. Anyway I spent several hours with this disc and am so glad that I bought it. I can't say enough good things about it. It was easy to use and had a lot of powerful tools on it to assist in making your TV the best that it can be when doing the calibration yourself.
After I was all finished with the calibration I sat back & viewed the fruits of my labor while watching the "Experience" part of the Disney WOW Calibration Disc. For those of you who don't know, the Experience" part of the disc is a series of clips from different Disney movies that will really show off the picture details & colors of your new set. All I can say of OMG....I couldn't believe how fantastic this TV looked! I am so glad that I bought it over the other TV brands available. I would have liked to have posted some still shots that I took of a few of the clips off the TV, but unfortunately there is no utility on Sharp's website to do that for a review.
The next thing I tried out was the 3D capabilities. With a TV of this caliber & price point I would expect to have at least two pairs of 3D glasses included, but sadly, none are so I bought 4 of the Sharp AN-3DG20-B glasses separately. They are lightweight and fit well over my prescription glasses. Since I don't own any 3D movies I used the On Demand feature of my Comcast Service and watched some of their free 3D content. All I can say again is OMG. The 3D is outstanding! I was blown away and so were a few friends who came over to check out the new TV.
Is this TV perfect....no. If you look for faults you will eventually find some very minor ones on certain content, but this is true of all TV's. In my humble opinion is about as close to perfect as you can get with today's technology at this price point.
Shortly before posting this review, I watched several network shows including Dancing With the Stars & X-Factor on Comcast Cable. I have to say that I was just blown away by the sharpness, color depth, details & black levels displayed by this TV. It was in a word....AWESOME !
Maybe I'm just lucky & got an exceptionally good set I don't know, but I am one VERY HAPPY Sharp Aquos LC-70LE735U owner !
Regards, Tom from New Jersey

Review 6 for LC70LE735U
This is the BIG TV to get!
December 19, 2011
Pros: big epic picture quality, low power consumption, 3d led backlight packed with a lot of features!
Cons: can't edit subtitles on videos when on usb mode, apps included like youtube & netflix seems slow
A quick Google online and you will see all the good reviews on this TV--and guess what, they are right! I'm also a proud owner of this 70" LED LCD 3D HDTV LC70LE735U model. This has a USB input slot that will play your videos and music just by plugging the USB stick in. Yes, it will even play those .MKV, MP4, AVI, MP3s, etc. and it does it well. I suggest you buy a USB hub though to make access easier and if you're planning to use multiple USB slots. The picture quality is nothing less than amazing even in USB mode! And yes again, it does support the subtitle on those .mkv and mp4 files. The only downside is there is no option to change the type/color/size/etc. of the subtitles. I already sent an email to Sharp for this suggestion. I'm sure that if they want it to, it can be added by a simple firmware update. I looked around the net and there are a lot of people on several forums that are asking for this feature. Sony & Samsung can't even display the subtitles it seems without changing the audio filename to match the video filename. Sharp doesn't appear to have this limitation. I just wish they give the owners the option to edit and change the way subtitles are displayed or better yet--make them appear the way the video encoder intended these subtitles to appear on any PC like in Media Player Classic.
All in all, I highly recommend this TV to anyone. I did my research and this is the TV to buy. I thought of getting the 80" Sharp one but it doesn't have as much feature as this one. No regrets here.
