**New for 2014. Sharp’s LC-70SQ15U Q+ 70-inch LED backlit (4K Ready) Full HD TV is one of Sharp’s best 1080p HDTVs for 2014. This is the only Full HD TV currently on the market, that can also play 4K content, but sells for much less than a 4K TV. (4K Ultra HD has 4x more resolution than Full HD) The secret is that this sharp TV has 10 million subpixels more than regular HDTVs, which can give you almost 4K quality. It includes the Revelation™ 4K upscaler Engine and Quattron+ to watch current 1080p and 720p content and upscale the image to near 4K quality, or watch native 4K content. All content looks great on this set. It has an active 3D system for 3D content. Dynamic contrast is 8,000,000:1. 240Hz provides blur free, clear motion and quadruples the framerate of regular 60hz HDTVs. The LC-70SQ15U is 3D ready and is DLNA CERTIFIED® to let you remotely access music, video, and photos. MHL® Compatible.

Smart-Review Commentary: For 2014, Sharp’s LC-70SQ15U Q+ Full HD TV is also 4K Ready, so that you can enjoy this TV today, but be ready to play 4K Ultra HD content as it becomes available starting this year. This TV is able to upconvert regular HD signals to near 4K quality as well. And it is much cheaper than 4K TVs currently are. This TV will future proof you, as you will not miss out on the 4K Ultra HD experience (4K has four times the resolution of HD, same resolution as the movie theater.) This is Sharp’s best 1080p Full HDTV ever. It has a great Revelation™ 4K upscaler Engine and Quattron+ for viewing non 4K content, and can also display native 4K content as well. It has Active 3D capability. This is currently the only regular Full HD that can show native 4K content. It has a Dual Core Processor for faster Smart TV operations, an integrated flash enabled Web Browser, ability to use bluetooth mouse and keyboards, and many popular Apps. You will be able to access Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, Vudu, YouTube, and more. You can also receive content from your IOS or Android phone or tablet. A USB media player can display your pictures, videos, or music by plugging in a USB drive. We were very impressed by Sharp’s Revelation Upscale technology which we previewed at CES 2014. (See video below). This is the highest resolution Full HD TV on the market. This model has received outstanding consumer reviews. The LC-70SQ15U is a Smart-Review Top Pick for Full HD TVs for 2014 and the only one that is 4K Ready.
