Summary: I was looking for a 50 inch TV that will be strictly used for programming and not gamesI did not care about Smart nor 3D, so anyone out there who thinks the same should consider the Sharp models. I bought this at Sears for $584 on March 14 2014. Obviously for the price I am very happy, but thus far the performance is fantastic. The picture is great. This model is being phased out so if you find one, NEGOTIATE!
Summary: Ha gotten a Toshiba 50 and stopped watching it because the set was not what I expected.Purchased this Sharp Aquos and I am very happy with it.I made the mistake in buying the Toshiba,I have two other Sharps in my house and should have gone with another but was talked out of it by a salesperson.I will purchase Sharp from now on.They have the best picture I have ever seen.I will say if people are looking for a new tv one get it from Amazon and two make it a Sharp you won't...
Summary: Although the picture is great I have had to spend way too much time on the phone with Sharp customer service to help with issues. I also had repairman come to the house who setup netflix on my sons wii I can't get it work directly through the tv.
Summary: Do yourself a favor and shop around before settling for a Sharp television. The quality is subpar to ALL other brands available. The customer care department is despicable. Avoid the run around! Avoid the headaches! Anything but a Sharp!!!!!!!!!
Summary: What can possibly go wrong with electronics that it would stop working in less than 4 years. Needless to say, we won't be buying any more Sharp products ever again. These are much to expensive to have to replace every 3 years.
Summary: good, clear picture. The default color saturation is way over the top, so it takes some time to find a balance that works. Plenty of HDMI inputs, but one thing I don't like - it doesn't have a optical audio output, it does have a digital audio output, but it's not an optical connection.
Summary: I am just reviewing the picture quality as I use a Sony DVD for streaming and a Denon AVR for sound. Who still uses the TV speakers for a $1000 TV when you can set up a pretty decent soundbar for $150 or put it through a good brand, very competent AVR and speakers for $350? http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-YHT-397-5-1-Channel-Theater-Version/dp/B007PU2X76/ref=sr_1_6?
Summary: Not very good for gaming on, there is some screen latency, even though it says it is on 120hz, it is not. The App does not work for this tv. (on iPhone 5 and up) Could be better for the price.
