"This may be a bit of a game changer for some folks..."3.0 starson by ironmike0
Pros: Display size will always be a factor. How often does one hear, "Gosh, I sure do wish I'd gotten a smaller TV!"?
Cons: Local dimming would be an asset worthy of a display this size.
It remains to be seen how a fully calibrated display performs.
Summary: Sharp is on to something here... Someone is paying attention to the consumer demographic and crafting a sound marketing strategy.
Consider that many folks, myself included, like big screens but are not enamored of 3D in its current iterations. It is reasonably foreseeable that 3D tech will advance to the point of unassisted viewing/immersion (no glasses required) as a baseline standard. It would seem then that today's current 3D tech may be rendered as a rather glaring example of planned obsolescence - albeit a timely marketing coup of the first order.
I, for one, am content to wait. In the meantime, large screen HD 2D displays have my full attention.
Now as for the LC-70LE732U... If the quality control - and subsequent PQ, of course - are up to snuff, Sharp may well have a viable niche winner with this display. We can but hope...
