Summary: Purchased what I believed to be a "new" SHARP Aquos LC52LE830U......after 11 months tried to get warranty repair and was informed by Sharp USA that the unit in question only had a 30 day warranty because it was a "refurb". - have filed a complaint with the Oregon BBB and I am in the process of drafting a complaint to the Oregon State Attorney Generals Office Div. of consumer fraud.
Summary: On it's 2 year anniversary, it developed a thin vertical blue line just off center on the screen. Searching the forums shows that it's happening to a bunch of different Sharp TVs even newer than mine. Some have said that the repair man says it's the panel and it's unfixable. $1200 bucks down the toilet.
Summary: I purchased this tv in December 2012. Delivery was fast but no set-up. I really like this tv. I do not use all of the features that the tv has offer but this far I have no complaints. The setup was very fast and simple. Highly recommed this tv. I was looking to purchase another one but the price is currently too high. When I purchased it I paid 1100.00 . It is now running at 1500.
Summary: i agonized for months before buying this. bottom line, sharp makes a great product, was reasonably affordable , specs, picture, apps all great . only thing is , you always wish you bought something bigger , that's just the nature of these things.
Great tv esp., since these models are gonna b discontinued!

Summary: Plasma prob. Produces best in regards to motion and picture. AND, boy have plasma prices FALLEN! But, the screen glare is terrible and turning people away (me included). That's 1 reason I went with this Sharp led, MATTE finish. Overall, this set is great and the sound seems pretty darn good for a TV to me (I'm somewhat of a musician, maybe I'm a bit deaf?!) this TV is still new to me and I'm tweaking picture, but I'm pretty darn happy right now.
Summary: I recently has a 42LG40 that was a great TV. It was only a 42inch so I wanted a larger sized tv. I upgraded to this sharp as I have heard sharp makes great Tvs. I ordered it from another website, the price was good, the reviews were good so my expectations were fairy high. Upon the TV arriving I spent alot of time on calibrating the TV to suite watching TV, as well as playing Xbox 360. The pros of the TV is the picture quality.
Because of this TV I will never buy another Sharp product again.

Summary: We have had this tv for over a year and half now and I don't know how many times my husband or I have muttered 'God I hate this TV' in all that time. I had originally gone to a local electronics store where Sharp was their featured product. When I found a better deal on Amazon I chose to buy it via the site. Our main problem with the tv is it constantly has little glitches that prevent it from working correctly.
Excellent picture quality but Sharp has stopped this model

Summary: This is first review am writing for any product because of special experience. Have ordered it online from Amazon and "HH Everything" as seller. Was amazed by picture quality. Sound is good given size of speaker which can fit in TV. However after three months of use found one black line in middle of screen. Called Sharp support center and came to know it is refurbished unit.
Summary: I purchased this TV just before Christmas online from Sears with a store pick up. When it was first turned on a series 2" by 5" white bars appeared on the left part of the screen. My first call was to Sharp customer support who assured me that it was a bad HDMI cable which I replaced with a new cable ($$$). This did not cure the problem.
Fabulous TV, Great price, Flawless delivery and settup!

Summary: When I went to my big box retailer to compare HDTVs, I was particularily impressed with the picture produced by the Sharp LC52LE830U 52" TV. After looking at several other models, I determined that the LED-LCD model TV was what I wanted. I compared prices and found that through Amazon, I could purchase the set for $350.00 less than at my big box retailer and have it delivered for free.
