Sharp AQUOS Q + Series 70" THX LED 240Hz 3D Smart HDTV - LC-70UQ17U

The LC-70UQ17U, part of the AQUOS Q+ series of televisions, offers the highest resolution on a Full HD TV. Q+ Technology delivers higher resolution with 10 million more subpixels than Full HD, to give you more detail, depth, and color. The LC-70UQ17U can even play 4K content via HDMI input. In fact, it is the only HDTV to accept a 4K signal -- and it will play back at near-4K resolution. (Effective resolution up to 3840x2160.) Q+ TVs feature Sharp’s Revelation™ Upscaler, which takes all of your HD content and optimizes it for the higher resolution screen, so that it’s sharper and more vivid. Since Q+ TVs are built using Quattron Technology, you can also experience the added benefit of a billion more shades of color. A 240Hz refresh rate and 12 million: 1 dynamic contrast ratio give you precision clarity during fast-motion scenes. The LC-70UQ17U is also THX certified, and includes Super Bright technology for brighter light colors and richer dark colors. This TV features the new SmartCentral 3.0 smart TV platform, which allows you to search less and discover more. A smart guide integrates cable, satellite and streaming channels -- no more switching TV inputs or apps to find the shows you want to watch. SmartCentral also gives you access to the best apps, from instant access to movies with Netflix® and Vudu®, to videos with YouTube®, music with Pandora® and Rhapsody®, social with Facebook®, and the best of gaming.2 Now, virtually everything you do on the TV can be done from your tablet or smartphone. The SmartCentral 3.0 mobile app lets you search and discover new content without interrupting what you’re watching, and launch it seamlessly.3 Change channels, volume, or inputs and adjust picture settings. Share videos, pictures and music. And with Miracast screen mirroring technology, anything on your smartphone, tablet or laptop can be viewed in glorious high definition TV without a wired connection.

Features:

Picture Quality

  • Q+ Technology
    Q+ technology divides each subpixel in two, resulting in 16 million subpixels on the TV – an astounding 10 million more than Full HD. More subpixels = more detail, and content is intelligently scaled to take advantage of this additional resolution. As a result, Q+ TVs are able to take a 1920x1080 resolution screen and make an effective resolution of up to 3840x2160.
  • Quattron™
    Exclusive Sharp Quattron technology provides a clearer, richer picture, and noticeably more detail, color and brightness by adding 2 million sub-pixels to the standard screen. Sharp’s proprietary Quattron technology incorporates a fourth yellow subpixel to the standard red, green and blue, giving AQUOS Quattron televisions 33% more subpixels than a standard HDTV, for a total of 8 million subpixels. The AQUOS Quattron panel is brighter by design and uses less power than a conventional 1080p
  • Revelation Upscaler
    The built-in Revelation Upscaler takes all of your HD content and optimizes it for the higher resolution screen, so that it’s sharper and more vivid.
  • 240Hz Refresh Rate
    See sharper, more electrifying action with the most advanced panel refresh rates available today. 240Hz technology delivers crystal clear images, even during fast-motion scenes
  • AquoMotion™ 960
    AquoMotion 960, Sharp’s backlight scanning technology, quadruples the effective refresh rate to hit you with all the power that fast-moving sports and movies can deliver
  • Super Bright™
    High-brightness panel combined with an intelligent contrast engine, constantly analyzes the signal and enhances the brightness of the bright objects on the screen while maintaining the black levels on the rest of the screen. The result is a more brilliant, more contrasted picture

Smart

  • SmartCentral™ 3.0

You can also control MHL-enabled mobile devices using your existing TV remotes to easily access and select content
  • Compatibility

      Comments about Sharp AQUOS Q 70" THX LED 240Hz 3D Smart HDTV:

      This is the BEST looking TV out there that's not "4-K". Although this set is Hybrid...which means it can play 4-K content. So to me it's a 4-K set without the 4-K price. The set is future ready. Since there is NO content in 4K yet...and it seems as if it will be years to come before we see "real" 4-K content, do yourself a favor and save some money and get this set so if 4K movies do come out in the summer of 2015(which i doubt) you will be ready. And to top it off...it's a 70" set! with excellent build quality.

        Comments about Sharp AQUOS Q 70" THX LED 240Hz 3D Smart HDTV:

        ABT is the absolute best in pricing and customer satisfaction. The delivery guys were great and didn't leave a mess in your home after they were done. Sasha O. was my sales person and she was great! I have shopped with ABT since the 90's and they continue to put customers first. Some other electronic stores could learn a thing or two from them.The only thing (and this is not a negative)ABT should do is follow up with their customers after the sale to see how things are going with their purchase.

        On to the TV.... Sharp AQUOS Q 70" THX LED 240Hz 3D Smart HDTV...this is the BEST non-4K TV on the market. It's actually a Hybrid. It accepts and play 4K content and upscale your HD channels to near 4K quality. The pictures on this set looked more natural than on actual 4K sets. And the build quality is excellent. Not full of plastic like Samsung. And the 70" screen is the icing on the cake without breaking the bank. So if you are in the market for a BIG screen TV and don't want to do 4K right now since there is nothing in 4K....you owe it to yourself to take a look at this Sharp Aquos. No other "non-4K" TV's out there can accept and play 4K content. Once you look at this set side by side of a "4K" set...you won't be able to tell the difference. If there is a difference...it so slight that paying an extra 800-1,000.00 is not worth it and you will be just as happy.Take it from a guy who had 2 4K sets in his home and sent them both back and decided on the Sharp Aquos instead.
