Summary: Bought one these from a Sam's Club and it lasted 2 years and now is garbage due to the panel failing. Had a TV technician troubleshoot, replace main board and power board still no change, therefore it had to be a Defective panel. $1,200 for a 2 year life.
Picture quality is great; Customer Support is terrible
15 April 2014
Summary: Purchased this TV about one year ago. Picture quality is great, however Sharp no longer supports web browsing for this model TV. While the pre-loaded apps (Netflix and YouTube) still work, I'm no longer able to browse the internet. The TV was introduced to the the market about 2 years ago.
Summary: I love technology and am very critical of "HD" products. I have nothing but good things to say about this television. I have waited 6 months to review to ensure there were no glitches with the product, and it performed as it says. Bottom line, it is better than I expected.
Summary: Purchased this TV new. 13 months into ownership the mainboard was toast. My failure resulted in all 4 HDMI ports being dead, which apparently is a very common failure on this set from my internet travels.
Summary: The TV broke down after a few months of operation. No sign, no warning, just stopped working. While watching TV, it just shut off and would not turn on. I did quite a bit of research on it, which pointed to a faulty motherboard, which falls under the warranty and I called support.
TV looks great...slight LED edge bleeding in places

Summary: I am overall very happy with this tv for the price paid ($800 refurbed). There is some slight edge bleed of the LEDs that is noticeable in really dark scenes, but I'm no videophile...so meh. I bought this tv b/c it's a budget 60"....and it is perfect for that.
Summary: The thing I liked about this TV was the anti-glare coating that it's replacement lacks. The size and weight were good, and configuration was straightforward. The problem my TV encountered after only 8 months of wallmounted use was light bleed-through on the bottom of the screen.
