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: There's a lot to love about this Sharp tv. Picture quality is not one of them. This wifi-enabled LCD is thin & light. I was able to put it on the wall myself with minimal grunting. The speakers are no where near as bad as everyone says they are. They are rear-facing, so the sound is muffled, but not bad. Wifi set up was a total breeze. It saw my network, took the password and boom, I was listening to Pandora. The apps are pretty ridiculous too.
Summary: I'll be short and to the point. After spending $1,300, I had high expectations for this TV (even tho it is considered a lower quality TV). When it arrived, I was excited to have upgraded from 42" to 52", but thats about all I was satisfied with. The design is very vanilla. I was aware of this prior to purchasing, but it was even more apparent in person. Picture quality was very underwhelming. No WOW factor whatsoever.
