Smart-Review Commentary: For 2014, Sharp’s LC-70UD1U 4K Ultra HD TV is Sharp’s best TV ever. With Four times the resolution of HD (8 million pixels), a great upscaler for viewing non 4K content, and active 3D, you have a great large screen TV at a lower price than many 65-inch 4K TVs. This is the only 4K TV currently that is THX® 4K Certified, which is designed to give you a Cinema type picture. The LC-70UD1U had to pass over 400 rigorous tests, ensuring that it met the highest standards in picture performance. Its active 3D system looks lifelike when using 4K content. The resolution of this TV is almost the same as a movie theater. 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. Sharp did not neglect the speakers, as it includes a 6 speaker sound system with 35 watts of power. A USB media player can display your pictures, videos, or music by plugging in a USB drive. We were very impressed by Sharp’s 4K TV when we previewed it at CES 2014. This model has already received outstanding consumer reviews . The LC-70UD1U is a Smart-Review Top Pick for 4K TVs for 2014.
