Ancker, I think that's the way to go. You can pull your hair out with so many differing reviews (for any TV) so if you like what you see, and the price is right you should just buy it. I have a Panasonic and a Philips set that had a wide range of reviews, but I've enjoyed both. Neither are perfect, but both very enjoyable.
I went ahead and downloaded the owners manual for the Sharp so that I could become familiar with it before I buy it. I also plan on picking up a wall mount and hdmi cables ahead of time and getting everything set up so that I can just put this bad boy up on the wall when I get it and start enjoying 70 inches of viewing pleasure!!
