Showing 1-10 of 17
purchased in 2011 -- replaced 3 times!!!!!!
9 August 2013
Summary: Purchased in 2011. Has failed three times. Each time, nonrepairable. Luckily we purchased a 5 year warranty. Would NEVER buy another Sharp product. Very disappointing, especially since we spent so much money on it.
Summary: The panel goes, and it is not worth fixing, they just replace it under warranty. It has happened twice in two years, the first set died at 11 months, the second replacement unit died with the same error in 13 months. They would not let me extend the warranty on the replacement set, so it goes to the heap. The error code is one short and one long blink, it means the panel is not functioning.
Summary: I highly suggest doing your research on this TV other than on Amazon, you'll find LOTS of issues with this particular model going out. I bought this TV in December 2010, it died in January 2011 for the first time and took Sharp over a month to get a replacement out. Here it is a year after the first replacement and it is dead again.
Summary: Got this around Christmas time 2010. Turned it on maybe 10 times total. Flash forward to fall 2011. I finally get time to really play with the TV and I notice a 'spiderweb' pattern across the entire screen. Almost like oil and water mixed, however the weird pattern was stationary and would stay the same across all inputs. Called up the company I bought it from and they gave me Sharp's #.
Summary: My mother just bought one of these (on my advice) and we set it up last week. the good: menus are actually easy to use, remote is also good. the bad: caucasian skin tones look yellow, sorry but i was not able to adjust this out without distorting other colors. asian skin tones looked good and african american skin tones looked like caramel Other than that not minor flaw it is a very nice tv set but i can not get used to all those white folks looking jaundiced!
Summary: This is definately a great TV for under $2000 for a 60" TV. The TV was purchased for our conference room. It's a little on the heavy side (around 125 lbs.) but what do you expect from a TV this big. The weight is mainly due to the glass screen. It is also a crazy thin TV. Only a little over an inch thick I believe (minus the stand). The video quality is pretty good. The only issues I have seen so far is the "glowing" areas when the TV is displaying black.

Summary: I bought the lc-60le820un locally about 2.5 months ago. Today, the picture went bad. The colors look bleached, whitewashed. Almost like when You take a high resolution image on a pc go from 32-bit color to 16 color mode. If I get service like the other guy who posted here with a problem, I will be done for life with Sharp Electronics. Flash Forward one week: Aquos Advantage eventually got a technician from a local electronics repair company over to my house.
Summary: Purchased this TV 11/13/10, on 3/1/11 the power supply went out and now I'm waiting for the part and service technician to fix it. Fortunately it is covered with a 1 year warranty which is upgradable to 15 months. I highly suggest the upgrade! Other then being totally useless to me now it had a good picture before it blew.
Summary: been using it for about 2 weeks. the picture is crystal clear and vivid. you just need to have a good cable signal, and HD programming preferred. blue Ray is incredible also. never thought i would buy a Sharp TV, but if it will last, then i made the right choice.
