Summary: My husband and I purchased this TV in November of 2011, we HATE it. But after spending so much on it we have been stuck with it. The TV will freeze to the point that it has to be unplugged and allowed to sit a minute before being plugged back in if we change the source on the tv and turn a device attached on in the wrong order. The TV has recently starting making a loud buzzing noise that seems like imminent doom...
Summary: I have had this item for approximately 3 months now and am very unhappy with it. I do not have cable television or any other components other than my computer which is what I use it with (you don't need any other components these days!). I have used several other large HDTV's as my monitor and they were amazing but I've had to part with them for some reason or another. The color just flat out sucks. Doing graphics is out of the question.
Summary: As we approach the one year mark since we bought this TV, we're still thrilled with our purchase. Yes, if I really pay attention, I can detect some backlight bleeding through on dark scenes (like credits), but for everyday non-critical watching, we would never notice that. When compared to the 46" Panasonic plasma that this replaces, I do think that the Panny's PQ is better when viewed in near dark conditions, but this is in a very large bright room, and this larger and...
Summary: This unit suffers from two problems that make it a dealbreaker for me. The first is that it does not do a good job with anything less than 1080p, which i attribute mostly to its massive size. That said, other brands dont have as much blur. It is reminiscent of standard def on say a 32 inch tv. It just doesnt look special.
Summary: I purchased this TV on BF from Sears and really wanted to keep it since price was outstanding. It had a couple large background "clouds" that were visible under normal room lighting conditions, during dark movie scenes. That was something that I expected after reading reviews, so I didn't make big deal out of it. When I looked at it initially, picture quality was really impressive, especially for me, since I was upgrading from old projection TV.
Summary: Got this from a brick and mortar store nearby. Been fiddling with it for days, but cannot get the color accuracy under control. I have an older 52" Sharp as well, but since its picture quality is way better, this set will probably go back to the store. Pros: huge screen, great price, decent picture *if* you can ignore the color accuracy Cons: lacks color channel adjustments, has a weird and seemingly one-off menu not found on other Sharp 60" and above EDIT--Added a...
Summary: I realize this is more of a comparison, but I am posting this here and avsforum for those who are in the same boat (debating between an LED like this, or a Plasma). After having this TV for a week, I had to see if I made the right choice...I had to see if motion blur was actually bad compared to what else I could have. I went to Fry's and got a Plasma... Panasonic TC-P60S30 for $1200.
Summary: Color Accuracy: (B) Unless you are adventurous enough to go into the service menu, the only options that you have for calibrating color on this set are "Color," "Tint" and "Color Temperature." Even if you want to take the risk and go into service menu territory, you won't be able to change the color settings for HDMI inputs. Only Component and TV inputs can be adjusted in the service menu.
Summary: I bought this TV for a good price from HHGreg for $999 and here are my views . Picture Quality: I would give it 3 stars as this TV lacked the crispness i was looking for that my other LG 42 inch had.All sports channels however looked great. With that being said i have seen reviews of other sharp models that required manual caliberation for an enhanced picture clarity. i have yet to do that. Sound quality : Decent but do not expect a home theater effect.
Summary: Purchased these television on black frida 2 years ago. It's still running great! Great quality and I dont have an issue with the sound quality like some other reviewers. I would definitely recommend it to others.
