Times are tough enough for Sharp without the company having to convince people to pay extra for esoteric add-ons like 240Hz, 3D, and the extra yellow pixel of Quattron. But that's exactly what it's trying to do with the LC-LE847U. It costs hundreds more than the company's step-down sets, including the highly recommended LC-LE640U series, and occupies the same size range as Vizio's lower-priced, entirely decent E601i-A3 series. Meanwhile, if you consider 3D a must-have feature, the company's own LC-LE745U is a much better value. Compared with those LED TVs, not to mention the numerous plasmas that outperform it by a country mile, the Sharp LC-LE847U just can't compete.
