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.
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.
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.
Summary: I ordered a refurbished LC60LE810UN. After 4 months of using the TV (the warranty, of course, is only 3 months), it wouldn't turn on and I got a blinking error light. Called a TV repair place, they said "That's a panel issue.
Pros: The TV is great. Build quality, image, features, all very nice.
Cons: Mine died after 4 months, and after telling me they'd replace it for free, Sharp wanted to charge me $505 for the replacement.
Summary: After about 2 weeks of use the TV developed an annoying column of dead pixels that ranged from the very top of the screen and ran all the way to the bottom (an estimated 2160 dead pixels). Fortunately the manufacturer support was great and a replacement was issued...
Pros: Great color, response rate, and contrast. Thin bezel and study base, ability to turn off MOST backlighting for the onscreen controls (everything except the "Sharp" text in the lower left). Speakers are surprisingly powerful for a flat panel and almost make a stereo unnecessary (2.1 that is... not...
Cons: Only has RGB connector from a PC (no DVI or DisplayPort), no ability to disable all backlighting (the "Sharp" in the lower left gets annoying with all of the lights off in the room). Only has built-in ethernet for internet connectivity (no wireless). Honestly, the CONs are pretty light...
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.
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.

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.
