Apart from the 3D capabilities, the AQUOS LC-80LE844U also features full array LED backlighting and a 240Hz refresh rate which the brand claims helps to eliminate blur during fast moving videos. The television also comes with Sharp’s SmartCentral interface. These are basically Sharp’s smart TV features for their 2012 80-inch TV.
