Introduction

Sharp took the age-old adage of "go big or go home" very seriously: the LE847U series comes in only 60-inch and 70-inch sizes. Clearly, Sharp is not going home. The question here is whether that other proverb, "bigger is better," applies here.

This Sharp is equipped with all of the features that are required for high-end HDTVS. 3D? Check. Internet? Check. Fancy technology that may or may not do anything useful (Quattron)? Check.

What we really care about is how well a TV can handle basic functions like watching a movie or a sports game. The Sharp LC-60LE847U (MSRP $2,700) can do that, but this behemoth runs into trouble in areas like color quality, 3D crosstalk, and its Smart TV platform, SmartCentral.
