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. Very disappointed that Sharp decided a relatively young TV should no longer be part of their supported products. What's the point of buying a smart TV if I can't browse the internet?
Summary: Picture quality was very lacking. Black levels were very poor. Angled viewing really degraded the picture. This tv has alot of features that are nice, but is lacking real substance in the picture department. Returned this tv and replaced with a plasma which has outstanding picture quality.
Pros: Attractive design, Easy setup, Good connections, Nice features
Summary: Ultimately I decided to return this unit because it feels cheap. If you don't like soap opera effect or don't make shortcuts Sharp made in design, than this TV is not for you. First off, Soap Opera Effect. It's horrible. The worst part is in "Standard" mode you can turn off all film/motion settings and it is still extremely noticeable. Only in "Game Mode" is it actually bearable.
Summary: LC-60LE640U Sharp Aquos 60 Comes ready to use, when you have all your mount, connection ready. Changing channels or application (Netflix) a painstaking, takes a long time, just to change channel the processor is thinking about it, as long as 4 seconds! The Motion should be turned off, otherwise picture appears to speed up, then normal, then speed up on some shows. Picture adjustment are not correct, so do custom setting (User).
Horrible picture and smart apps don't work at all.

Summary: Just like the title says this tv is horrible. The picture on movies is blurry if anything is moving. The smart apps don't work at all constantly locking up the tv where I have to turn it off and on to reset it. Bestbuy won't take it back because I had it over 30 days and sharp was no help at all. I have had it for 4 months and already shopping for a new tv (not a sharp) to replace this one.
Summary: Great picture quality. Lots of video adjustments. Enough inputs on rear (OK, it could use a second set of component in). Happy so far except that it's probably going to go back. One of the reasons that we bought it was for Netflix. Granted it works fine - when it works. It likes to deactivate every day (sometimes more than once) and that requires typing in your Netflix login info all over again.
Summary: LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this tv when it was working, however, it quit working after only 15 months. One day it just wouldn't turn on - the light at the bottom kept blinking. We called Sharp and we had JUST missed our warranty expiration. They gave us three options - go get it fixed ourselves (between $500-$800 for one of their repair shops to fix), replace ours with a refurbished one at the cost of $500 or upgrade to the same model but with 3D for $800.
