Great Picture Quality, but the clouding was too excessive.
6 April 2012
Summary: I am the type to spend hours researching tv's, and after reading several reviews, forums, etc I was all set on getting a Panasonic Plasma once the 60 ST50 model was released. That was until I saw a Sharp tv on display at Costco playing a blu-ray; I was amazed with the picture quality, but I wanted a higher end model with 240hz, and the next day this tv pops up as an Amazon lightning deal. Just what I was looking for at that moment.
Great TV at a great price with a major annoyance Sharp needs to fix

Summary: Don't buy this purely off of the Aquos brand as I've noticed the quality of the pictures aren't what they were several years back. However, if you want a reputable manufacturer with a good history that is still making quality TVs that is a good value with a good picture, this is your TV. The built in apps are great so I don't have to rely on external devices to connect to services such as vudu or flickr.
Summary: Unfortunately nowhere in the item description does it mention this screen has a hi gloss finish, so as I have a lot of reflected light in the room, this TV does not work for me. I also have noticed the flashlight reflection in all four corners, especially bad in the bottom right, and this is very distracting when the screen is dark.
