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. It would appear the screws/bolts that held the back to the front may have been screwed in too tight at a few places along the bottom of the TV.
Summary: Purchased this TV after confirming with the sales person (at Best Buy) the Wi-Fi would allow access to Amazon Prime. It does NOT. Picture was okay right out of the box, but it certainly needs some tweaks. Biggest disappointment was that we thought we were getting true wi-fi to watch our movies/TV via Amazon Prime. The only 'Smart' part of the TV is for what comes already programmed (YouTube, NetFlix, Vulu...).
First one came broken then got a replacement over a month later

Summary: My first TV came with a blue band on the left side of the screen. I called Sharp, sent in pictures, and they came to replace it. The only issue i had was it took over a month to get sorted out. The quality of the TV itself seems reasonable for the price. It gets a bit choppy on high action scenes, but its not horrible.
Summary: I did several weeks of research on TV's in preparation of purchasing a 60-inch LED on Black Friday weekend. I had a limited budget, I wanted to stay as close to $1000 as possible. I can't use a plasma due to the lighting in my living room so I had to get an LED. All the reviews I read pointed to this TV as a decent deal for the price. Is it the best 60-inch out there? No. But it's a very good TV if you find it around $1000. I didn't buy this from Amazon, price too high.
Summary: Thanks to an order mess up I actually got this TV instead of the one I wanted which was the non smart version of this TV which are identical minus the apps. This TV's is large, aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Has 4 HDMI ports which I LOVE, however the reason this is getting 3 stars is because of one huge flaw and I know this is not a defect because there are too many reviews I have seen between this site and the LE600U (non smart version same size)...
Disappointed at first, but find the good setup and you might love it.

Summary: I spent hours trying to find the right setup and was very frustrated at first by the default setups. the problems of this tv was at first : -The automatic brightness/contrast management "sucks", it is way too dark. -If you switch to manual, the ranges of brightness/contrast/BlackLight are way to small.
Summary: There is a problem with the edge lighting. Very bright areas and dark areas. After jumping through numerous hoops ie phone calls, e mails, transfers from person to person, multiple forms, picture taking I think were a fax away of sharp sending a new one.
Summary: I agree that the picture is among the best that you will get for a 60" TV in the $1500 range. There is no question that the image is incredibly clear. The 120Hz 1080p really does a good job displaying fast action scenes without blurriness. That being said, Sharp has terrible Smart TV software. To begin with, you will only be able to use Netflix and YouTube. There is no browser and no app store.
