£500 off at the moment I'm tempted just gotta convince the missis

With its jumbo-sized 70 inch screen, 3D capability and wi-fi networking, the Sharp LC70LE741E makes quite an impression.

3D AND 70 INCH SCREEN FOR A TRULY CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE

For total engagement you can't beat a big screen - and there's very little that can beat the Sharp LC70LE741E for size! Added to this, the big Sharp also has Active 3D technology for unparalleled levels of brightness, detail and depth of image. Yet, despite its large size, the big Sharp Aquos still offers impressive picture quality. At the heart of this 1080p HD Ready screen is edge LED backlighting. This not only makes the screen slim but also provides a brighter picture with greatly enhanced contrast. Realism of subtle colours such as flesh tones takes a great step forward and, whatever the resolution of the TV you're watching, the Sharp is one of the truest TVs in its class. Matching the intense realism is the ability to strongly resist blur and judder. 100Hz technology gives smoother motion and more body to pictures, especially when watching fast moving sports events. This is backed up by Sharp's exclusive film Dejudder system for smooth and seamless replay of movies. Taken together, the Sharp Aquos LC70LE741E gives one of the most natural, detailed and smoothest pictures in its class.

CRISP AND SPACIOUS SOUND

With a cinema-sized screen like this, you really need to get a separate AV system to provide the sound to match. Whilst the built-in audio will never live up to the picture it still provides a spacious and clear sound. A digital amplifier powers the 2 x 10 speaker system for a crisp, powerful sound. Giving a distinct advantage over rivals is the Virtual/Dolby Surround sound system. This provides a more spacious sound quality than other TVs - especially as the speakers are further apart than usual.

SHARP'S AQUOS NET + FOR ACCESS TO THE BEST OF THE INTERNET

With Sharp's AQUOS NET +, the LC70LE741E has access to the best of the Internet via applications. It also offers the option of either wired or wireless connection to your home network hub. Other connections are every bit as comprehensive as you'd expect from a TV of this size. In addition to the four HDMI sockets this Sharp LED TV also comes with SCART, component and a PC input. There's also a USB interface that accepts video, photo and music data from your USB-equipped media player. Furthermore, as this is a two-way USB you can connect up a suitable hard drive system and use it as a PVR (Personal Video Recorder) via the Electronic Program Guide. When connecting to your hi-fi or AV system, the Sharp will oblige with a comprehensive range of connections including an optical digital output, analogue audio and headphone outputs.

MONSTER-SIZED BUT WITH A SMALL APPETITE FOR POWER!

Although this is a monster-sized TV, it's anything but when it comes to power consumption. This A+ rated device, on average, uses around 135 watts of power - which is still less than many sets half the size! A depth of 89mm also reduces the bulk compared with other TVs of this size, and makes the LC70LE741E surprisingly elegant for its size.

Other Features USB WLAN dongle included. Seperate rechargeable 3D glasses available in black (AN-3DG20-B).

So extra outlay for glasses..

meh Not 4K



At 70" I would ideally want 4K, but by the time 4K becomes available I am sure they will slip 8K in and you will feel like a right idiot for buying that 4K TV

Have you seen this TV?

I have and its got a pretty poor picture IMO.

ES8000 blows the socks off this, but no you cannot find a 70" ES8000, but I would prefer quality over substance.

A great price for a 70 incher. Any good reviews for it?

Has it got a scart socket to plug my Funai VHS player into?

Edit. Just read a couple of reviews. Looks like a 4 out of 5 star TV, so not bad & terrific value for the size.

Reviews/comments I've seen say quite the opposite. All depends on the quality of the source when you saw it in action.

Got this from Costco with free 5yr warranty some time ago for £1900

By the way, superb picture. Thought it might not be as good as my old lg 60 inch plasma. It's great. The smart tv software however is a pile of sh*te.

what content was fed, and how? It's very easy to get a poor picture on a 70" - artifacts are easier to see

give it a year or two and this will be the average size in most homes '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

just gave you the heat needed for you to get in the HOT list :-)

I saw it yesterday in Costco it was £1900 plus VAT with same warranty. So not cheaper plus I doubt anyone has a time machine

£1999 at Sharp if you have a affnity account and includes 5year warranty, also 2.5% TCB

Cold. 60" for £900 is more than adequate.

in the last few days I have just picked up the 836 sharp 70 inch set. (£2500 using a sharp affinity account)

I could not be happier with the set, the size is outstanding, gaming is great on it and blueray looks superb. I was worried about the size with it only being 1080P but i neednt have, it looks ace. Anyone saying 4K for a TV this size are either jumping on the band wagon but never seen the set in action, OR have far better eyes than me (or are sitting too close)

My only concern with the 741 is with it only being edge lit, which on a set so large may be an issue, mind you with ALL 80inch and below sharp sets being edge lit only it seems edge lit is the future.

If you cant get a sharp affinity account this is a good price for the TV, but if you CAN (google may help) then i think the 836 is worth the extra £400. I have zero banding, zero fogging on my set. I would be amazed (and impressed) if you can manage that on a 70 inch edge lit..

PS it still amazes me, 139W for a 70 inch TV, in context that is barely more than a light bulb!!!

edit gazster is correct, the "smart" features of the TV are not great, but to be honest that is a none issue for me

& as for voting cold because a far smaller TV is cheaper, well that is the most stupid reason ever.

by that logic may as well vote all TVs more than £70 and bigger than 15 inches cold.

It is probably worth buying this at Costco. Even if it is a couple of hundred pounds more Costco place a 5 year warranty, free of charge, on all electrical items sold.

my advice is go to avforums or avsforum and read up there.

Most people who have paid money for a TV are more likely to be naturally biased to their own set (not always mind you)

also what is a show stopper for some people is a non-issue for others.

For instance, given the choice I would actually chose a passive 3D set over an active one. you get half the resolution but i find the 3d much easier on the eye (i couldnt get what i wanted however in my budget)

others however will swear blind that active is the king of 3D and passive is rubbish.

wow cheaper elsewhere and with a 5yr warranty thrown in yet this is getting hotter, weird

the cheaper elsewhere is not really relevant. You are only meant to get the affiliate discount if you work for sharp or an affiliated company.

Now, people may or may not fraudulently sign up based on a code on the internet but I do not think you can vote this cold based on fraudulently being able to get cheaper elsewhere...... (otherwise ever game and blueray disk would be cold using bittorrent as a reason why)

sharp actually charge £2999 for the 741 and £3999 for the 836.

Is it true that the only catch up TV on lg's is BBC iPlayer?

It was inclusive of VAT when i bought it. TV prices drop like stones. If it was cheaper last year than now, it is not a bargain.

I dont know, my lg was pre smart tv days. The smart on this tv is so awful, it's as if it was powered by an old acorn electron.

I agree all this has going for it is its sheer size 70" for the price,
but im sure ill be disappointed if im going from a 50" panasonic with near reference picture quality and expecting to get the same immersive picture on a sharp

I think i'll hang on another year, 4K is round the corner as well as 1080P larger LED Panels too with 2013 level of picture quality for probably the same price.

LOL. Yep.
By that stage, the broadcasts will need to carry so much data that they will no longer be transmittable the way they are today, and they'll have to be done by laser, so we'll all need tall relay towers in our neighbourhoods, and then fibre-optic cable runs from those to our 8K TVs.
But you'll be able to spot each individual silk thread in Des Lynam's ties (he'll be long dead by then, but there'll be X-Ray cameras which will see into his coffin).

Good times!

Poor example comparing theft with not complying with a retailers contractual terms. One is quite clearly theft, the other is most definitely not and would likely struggle to find its way into the civil courts. Its certainly not fraud in the criminal sense, and a good thing too, since that would inevitably lead to extremely punitive terms within consumer contracts.

Piracy is theft, however as opposed to theft of a physical item it is not always easy to quantify the loss to the rights owner. For example an individual that downloads 10k tracks is unlikely to have ever purchased all those tracks. While the likes of the RIAA would quantify the loss as the cumulative sum of the value of all those tracks, that is clearly incorrect. The rights owners of some of those tracks will have suffered a real loss, as without access to them through illicit means the individual would have purchased them, others would have suffered no loss as the individual would never have actually purchased the track.

However, this does not mean that both instances do not qualify as theft. To provide an analogy, if I was to steal your car, put 10 miles on it and return it Undamaged, before you'd ever missed it, would you not consider that as theft? The pedantic may suggest there is a minuscule affect on residual value/wear and tear, but what if I left a tenner to compensate for that? I'm guessing both you and the law would consider it as theft (TDA in the UK to be specific), but there has been no palpable loss to you.
