This TV does not decode 5.1ch signal via HDMI. It will only do 2ch audio inputs. If you are going to use optical output from TV to a 5.1+ ch receiver, it will not work neither.
^^^ This really only matters for OTA programming.
LED vs LCD.
They are all LCD, difference is backlighting. Why does it matter? 3 Reasons:
1. LED is more energy efficient.
2. LEDs are smaller, allow for thinner display.
3. Some LED TVs allow for selective backlighting. Because fluorescent tubes must light the entire screen evenly, designers have no way to vary the backlighting intensity in different parts of the screen. Even if you want to show a single white pixel on an all-black screen, the light needs to be blazing away in back. But with some LED setups, lighting different parts of the screen separately becomes possible, allowing the lighting to actually improve the image.
The good: Inexpensive for an LCD with LED backlighting; extremely energy efficient; effective video processing that can separate antiblur and dejudder functions; intriguing selection of interactive widgets; superb built-in support including live help with remote access; solid selection of picture controls; plenty of connectivity with four HDMI and one PC input.
The bad: Black levels not as deep as LED and some non-LED-based LCDs; less-accurate grayscale; glossy screen reflects ambient light; minor backlight uniformity issues.
The bottom line: The Sharp LC-LE700UN's LED backlighting doesn't elevate its picture quality beyond
