2 weeks ago
Summary: Less than two years old and have a defective power supply board. After researching it on-line. Very common with this brand. Sharp gets a thumbs down with us. Blinking sharp symbol at the bottom of the TV with no picture. BE WARNED.
Summary: I did not like this tv. Could not find a good adjustment. Looks like a cheap soap opera. Not happy. Returned it and bought a panasonic plasma. 100 times better. Also, sound would cut out some times. And every now and then the sound would stop. Then, you would need to change between hdmi 1 to something else and back again.
Summary: I bought this TV with high expectations. The delivery was not as stated. It took 2 plus weeks. The delivery company also called and said i needed to have someone help them. 180 pound TV and they send one person. I need to scramble 20 minutes before they came and get someone to help them. Then when i went to assemble the base of the TV the screws were missing. I called sharp and they said once i proved purchase they would send the screws out. estimate 4 weeks.
Summary: 60 days after purchasing this TV, it developed a vertical blue line (defective panel) -- no big deal, I understand manufacturing defects happen. It's been more than a month since I submitted a warranty claim and I'm still waiting on a replacement TV. Sharp's warranty process is basically a one-way communication channel -- you have to call them to get updates and to move the claim along the process -- you'll never hear from them otherwise.
Summary: Despite this TV boasts 240 Hz refresh rate, maximum frame frequency of 1080p input that this TV will accept is only 60 Hz. The tech specs published on their web-site say nothing about this limitation. Consequently you lose half of resolution when you watch 3D movies and you can forget about 3D games.
Summary: I bought the 80le857U from a different retailer and had it professionally mounted. It worked well...for a week. Yes there were lip sync issues but I thought the picture was good. Then a week later, for no reason, a red line emerged in the middle of the screen. Apparently this is a common problem for Sharp TVs. The TV is under warranty so i called Sharp. They inspected the TV and agreed to replace it because it was not repairable.
