Summary: I did a lot of research before I bought this TV. I purchased mine about a year ago, and everyone who comes to my home asks me what kind of TV it is. I viewed it side by side with a Samsung 240Hz LED at a Best Buy Magnolia Store in Kansas City. There was no doubt in my mind the Sharp had the better picture. It is crisp, & clear, with no haze of the blacks like my Sony's.
Summary: Save your money. Don't buy this piece of junk! We bought one and 2 years after good use it broke and now they want $5000 to fix it. That's more than the cost of the machine. A $4000 dollar TV shouldn't last 2 years! This is the biggest rip off ever! Sharp should be ashamed of themselves for such a crappy product! Any questions, please feel free to contact me. I am posting this on every review board I can find to save everyone their money. AVOID SHARP!!
Best 'affordable' 65" LCD on the market, AquosAdvantage earns their keep
N. L. Steele "Early Adopter", Amazon
21 August 2010
Summary: This set was purchased to replace our substantially older LC-45D40U also from the Aquos lineup. We've always been happy with the Sharp LCDs, as they tend to present the best features and picture quality at their pricepoint. Historically customer service was a question mark for Sharp, but in recent years they've stepped their game up and are doing everything they can to maintain customer loyalty. I'll mention more about this later, but first the set itself.
Summary: So I upgraded from a Samsung HL61A750 LED based DLP to this bad boy and thus far I am very satisfied. I really wanted something bigger as well as something that i could wall mount eventually (currently I have it sitting on the stand). I looked around for quite a bit and was pretty much set on picking up a 73" Mitsu DLP when I saw this TV sitting in a corner. It was being clearanced out for $1800 and I figured, why not?
Excerpt: A couple years ago my husband started commenting that it was time to update our television and go bigger. I thought we were doing just fine with the rather large tv we had, but needless to say I caved in. Usually, he is very impulsive and I have a hard time talking him out of immediate purchases. However, I was impressed with the time and effort he put into comparing brands and looking at different televisions. He finally settled on this tv and in a gigantic size.
Summary: I would 100% recommend this product to anyone. The picture quality is superb, absolutely no motion blur, and the viewing angle is incredible. I mounted this unit on the wall in about an hour and was watching HD video from there. Absolutely no glitches with it, delivery was on time, and the guys were very professional getting the unit out of the box and ready for me. 100% satisfied.
Summary: The best 65"lcd hdtv we had yet!!!! It is a very nice looking lcd tv with a beautifull picture&great product!!!Never mind the "gold bezel"it is look just like the whole frame is black!!Anyway it makes are basement like a litle CINEMA specially with playing Blu-ray disks.
Summary: Pros: 1) Fantastic picture, colors, etc. 2) Deals with fast motion very well (no discnerable problems in handling motion) 3) Great price. 4) No dead pixels 5) Easy menu and setup. 6) Great looking set (I'm not really sure what people are talking about regarding the gold bezel. If it has a gold bezel, I sure can't see it. It looks all black to me.) Cons: 1) My set leans backwards slightly instead of standing perfectly vertical. I'll contact customer services about this.
Summary: I originally purchased a floor model 65inch Aquos LCD TV model 65D64U from Sears in September 2009. Sears had the floor model for some time and placed it on clearance with a price that was unbeatable. I trucked the TV home and it looked pretty good for the first two weeks. Shortly afterwards however, two ghost like horizontal bars streched acrossed the screen that were about one inch in length each.
