Summary: Great deal right? I bought on Dec.20,2013. delivery on Jan.3,2014 (holiday delay) Sharp warrenty date from Dec.20th ! The TV lasted a couple days before a vertical line appeared about 3 inches from the left edge. Top to bottom. I called sharp. Had to send them 1) proof of purchase 2) digital photos of the screen with the problem. They decided to replace my brand new TV with a refurbished TV. The refurbished TV lasted a couple days before the picture went out.
Summary: First let me state that I made the mistake of buying this TV through Sears because of a sale. I will never buy through Sears again and you'll see why after my story. I bought this TV in June 2013. We unpacked it and plugged it in and started watching. As we were watching the TV would turn off then come back on. I tried adjusting all the "power saving" options to no avail. The TV continued to turn off and on while watching.
Summary: If you buy this TV with the expectations that it'll perform like a primary $1,500 240hz 3D LEDTV then you will be highly disappointed. However, if you are like me (a few months ago) and are in need of a second TV for the bedroom or small apartment then this TV is more than adequate for your needs! However, do not buy this TV over $600 dollars, because it often goes on sale and can be had for less than $500. So keep an eye out.
Summary: Very impressed with the picture quality and very nice on our bedroom wall. Really like the fact that it is under 2" deep The sounds is OK (typically flat screen sound) but overall very happy with the TV and makes a nice addition to our home. power consumption is much better than LCDs/Plasma's and looks great even when the room is pretty bright.
Summary: I picked up this TV at our local electronics store over the weekend. It wasn't my first choice, I'd actually decided on their house brand TV [made by LG] but everytime I got one home it had issues (either busted screen or missing parts, etc). So the AV manager at this store "upgraded" me to this Sharp at a substantially reduced cost. For around 400 dollars I thought it was a pretty good value on a brand name I recognized.
