Like many high-end LED TVs we've tested this year, the Sharp LC-LE847U didn't produce picture quality commensurate with its price. In its favor, it was able to maintain fidelity in bright lighting situations, color in bright areas was OK, and the extra yellow pixel of Quattron didn't make color accuracy worse after proper adjustment. On the other side of the ledger, that fidelity isn't great, falling short of what you see on many less-expensive sets like the Vizio E601i-A3 and especially Sharp's own entry-level LC-LE640U. Lighter black levels, lack of punch, and bluish discoloration especially in dark areas were the main culprits.
