Conclusion: The Sharp LC-60LE650U is a very good value in the category of 60-inch flat panels, and it isn't just one of those bare-bones, minimal-featured TV values. Sharp omits top-shelf features that many people don't care about, such as 3D, motion/voice control, and a built-in camera, but keeps the core set of features that we like to see, including a solid Web platform, built-in WiFi, DLNA/USB media playback, and a host of advanced picture adjustments to fine-tune the image...
Summary: The Sharp LE650 series sets the big-screen LCD TV value bar high with very good picture quality for the price.
Pros: The Sharp LE650 boasts better overall picture quality than most competing LCD TVs. Black levels and shadows are dark and detailed, color is accurate, and the image maintains fidelity well in a bright room.
Cons: Sound quality has been compromised in the pursuit of a smaller cabinet; some slight black uniformity issues; cheaper big-screen TVs are available.
Conclusion: There aren’t many 60-inch LED Smart TV’s that can be had for $1,100. Actually, at the time of this review, we were only able to find one near that price: The Vizio E601i. And since we’ve not had the opportunity to review that particular model, we can’t draw a comparison. However, we can say that the Sharp LE650 offers great value.
Pros: Incredibly bright picture, Great Color accuracy, Surprisingly good sound, Snappy, intuitive UI, Well-priced
Cons: Underwhelming black levels and shadow detail, Large blooms of backlight bleed, Some motion jitter with 24fps content
Conclusion: Sharp's Aquos LC-60LE650U is a reasonably priced 60-inch LED backlit HDTV offering a generous feature set and an overall sharp picture. Color accuracy and viewing angle performance could be better, though.
