Sharp LE830 series is also the generation successor model to the first HDTV Quattron LE820 series but adds the ability to show 3D with shutter glasses. 3D Model possesses LCD LED lights outline border with Full HD resolution and RGBY Quattron Quad pixel technology that allows displays vibrant colors and lively.

Sharp Quattron form of property the ability to improve low-resolution images from SD -TV signals or analog cable. Thus the image shows a high degree of detail even for SD quality. However LE830 just really impressed when performing image quality in HD. This model for the image reaches a very high degree of detail, much better than LE820 last year’s. Colors in Movie mode honest, the frame motion appear smoother high thanks to the ability high to scan.
Although only the scan speed is 120Hz, but with open and scan feature turned off the screen backlight continuous scan TV is capable of high-speed interpolation 200/240Hz.
LE830 is one of the LCD TVs capable of showing the best black bands on the market today that can compare with Plasma screen TV.

Similarly the ability to show HD, new model Sharp Quattron also received praise in the 3D film presentation. Thanks to its high scanning speed, the same right and ability to perform deep black band, dark quality to LE830 better 3D performance LE925 predecessor despite lower prices.
Using 3D active shutter glasses, but with noise or crosstalk phenomenon of the Sharp’s 3D LED samples are less experienced.
