Summary: I bought this tv a little less than 3 years ago and it's having the same backlight problem that others are having. I paid $1000 for this tv and it didn't even last 3 years. I am never going to buy another Sharp tv ever. This tv is not worth the money.1 star is more than enough for Sharp.
Summary: With minimal use, our nice looking TV went blank in less than 2 years. Two blinking fast power lights then two blinking slow ones apparently mean the same defective power supply others experienced went on our TV. Sharp has lost my business for all future TVs.
Summary: Bought this tv December 2012. Well it's 4/21/14 the tv is dead. Terrible customer service. This cost me 1000 dollars and the screen failed. Don't buy this it was great for a year then just crapped out. Going to buy another brand tmrw.
Summary: I purchased this Sharp 52" at Sears on sale ($200.00 less then Amazon) approx 5 weeks ago. Setup was easy, mounted it to an articulating wall mount (that I did purchase from Amazon) all in less then 1 hour. Once the picture is dialed in to your liking, it's incredible!!
Summary: I got this tv because I was looking for a great all around unit with all the bells and whistles but did not want a 3d set. The picture quality is great and there's dozens of options for customizing your picture.
Pros: Just set this up this morning after getting it for eight hundred on black Friday. I love the ultra thin and simplistic bezel. Picture is stunning. Had some input lag when first connecting my Xbox - this is eliminated by turning the tv to game mode (which I believe enables the "vyper drive", as I ...
Cons: - only one component input - no biggie as I'll move over to hdmi. - apps include vudu, Netflix, YouTube, but no Hulu :( maybe that will be updated, pleaseplease? - doesn't make sammiches
Summary: Bought this product 18 months ago. I was now advised that it needs a part that may or may not be available, and if so would cost as much as the TV originally cost. Enough other people are having the same problem. Stay away from this TV. I wall stay from Sharp.
Summary: We bought this TV locally at HH Gregg based on the glowing reviews from various sources. Wish we knew about this "common" power board failure---we never would have bought this thing. Purchased it Sept. 4th, 2012.
Summary: I purchased this TV at Best Buy at the end of September, 2012. It has only been 9 months and it has already given out. While watching TV, the power went out on it completely. At the bottom, a light flashes slowly twice, pauses, and then flashes twice rapidly.
Same problem everyone else is having - BLINKING BOOMERANG and NO POWER

Summary: Bought new at Best Buy, Thanksgiving 2012. TV is now 2 years old. It turned off by itself tonight. Front boomerang logo blinks 2 times slowly, followed by 2 fast blinks. TV does not power on or light up the screen. Looks like same issue everyone else is having.
