Ok just got my LC-70LE745U yesterday. Got it setup and watched/tinkered with it for two hours last night. So far, I am very pleased. I looked hard to see any of the common lcd/edge lit led maladies commonly discussed and there were none that I perceived. Have not looked at 3d yet, but that is secondary for me. One thing I will note is that this model is 120hz and does NOT have Aquomotion 240. I know Sharp's website says it does, but I had downloaded the manual last week and based on reading that, I wasn't expecting anything other than 120hz. I watched some NBA and NHL games last night and did not see any objectionable motion blurring. BTW I use DTV so, good quality hd in. Will be ordering a blue ray player and cali disk soon. I did adjust the basic settings last night, turning off all the helper stuff and reducing contrast, color level, sharpness and backlight. Picture was too vivid for me with the out of the box user setting. Bought this from Paul's TV on Amazon. Came from Phoenix, AZ to SW GA via ABF with no problems.
