Product Description

Elite Black 60" PRO-60X5FD Flat Panel 3D LED HDTV - PRO60X5FD For years, the name Elite has been synonymous with the industry�s reference standard for the perfect television picture. Blacks so deep, they disappear into the bezel. Whites so bright, they burn your retina. And what seems like an infinite range of colors in between thanks to the addition of yellow pixels to the standard RGB pixels others are so content with. Elite is proud to introduce our biggest and most breathtaking television ever in LCD. It will once again become the standard by which all televisions will be judged. All Elite LCD TVs are THX, THX 3D Display and ISF certified. Features: Intelligent Variable Contrast Intelligent Variable Contrast is what sets Elite LCD TVs apart from others in the market. Coupled with RGB+Y, this unique technology enhances color gamut range and automatically controls brightness and backlight to create depth of color, brilliance, detail and black levels. No other television delivers this unique combination of image enhancing technology into one set. RGB+Y The Elite LCD TV adds a yellow sub-pixel to the standard red/green/blue color palette. The addition of the yellow sub-pixel enables the reproduction of a much broader range of colors. Precision Color Plus The new Elite LCD TV, with its four pixel technology, enables image processing with greater precision. With Precision Color Plus, each sub-pixel can be addressed independently, creating more than 8 million dots on the screen. FluidMotion FluidMotion, which combines an advanced frame creation system with Elite�s unique scanning backlight technology, creates a greater than 240Hz effect� improving picture clarity and smoothness in movies and sports content. Gen-Ten Panel The Gen-Ten LCD panel uses UV2A technology to achieve a high aperture level. This enables extremely high brightness that uses a unique structure, which allows up to 20% more light to pass

It's crisp, clear, beautiful color and I love it.
PB
It's great to see the Elite TV back and in 3D, no less, with a picture that squashes plasmas and is the best that I've ever seen.

You will love this TV and you will love the service, believe me.

I have had the Elite for about three weeks. I couldn't be happier with it, aside from the price. The picture is extraordinary, the blacks rich, the colors vibrant, and I haven't had it calibrated yet. One thing I wasn't expecting, but was thrilled to find out, is the quality of sound that comes from this TV. On my Sony (KDL55XBR8) the sound was pretty good, but there were times when I felt the need to turn on the audio receiver. As a result I bought a $300 soundbar. But now, with the Elite, I don't need it. The quality of sound coming from the Elite TV's own speakers is superior to the sound coming from my soundbar. The dilema is, now what do I do with the soundbar?

If I had to pick one thing that stands out on the Elite, I would say the black levels. They are absolutely astounding, to the point that I was distracted by the depth when I first starting using the TV. I have read that the black levels are better than for the previously made Kuro. I have never seen the Kuro's picture, but I would have a hard time imagining blacks any deeper than these.

Though I always sit directly in front of my TV I was actually surpised when I had to get something on the other side of the room and the picture did not significantly degrade as I got farther off angle. This is a huge improvement over my Sony KDL55XBR8.

I talked to a Sony rep at Best Buy a few months ago when I was getting "the itch" to buy a new TV. I was frustrated to find out that (according to the Sony rep) the HX929 was not a step up in quality from the XBR8. I said, "It's been almost three years. You mean to tell me that in three years Sony has not come out with a better TV?" He advised me to stick to my XBR8. I was astounded.

I was originally thinking about getting the Kuro when Pioneer was still around but wasn't in the market for one yet and was saddened to hear that they were discontinuing the line prior to my ability to afford it.

However, on one fateful day prior to the Super Bowl, I saw the unmistakable gold lettering of an ELITE model in Best Buy's Magnolia section. I was surprised to see it and asked about it...and that's when I learned that it actually was a Sharp. However, never fear...perhaps you may be put off by the fact that it's technically owned by Sharp now, but the Pioneer techs who originally made the best flat screens in the world have returned the Elite model to the showroom floor.

And oh, what a TV it is. I was worried primarily for 2 reasons: a) it's an LED (and was therefore worried about luminosity compared to some of the best plasmas) and b) this was the first time that Elite ventured into 3D territory. However, I put it through the ropes and here's what I have to gush about:

1. Luminosity. Seriously, this TV will put any plasma to shame...it makes our 8-series 58" Samsung seem somewhat dim in comparison. Whites are eye-piercingly brilliant. Local dimming of the picture is divided into 216 individual areas providing the cleanest looking, properly illuminated images that cheaper LED offerings may otherwise fail to deliver.

2. Colors. I read the CNET.com review which contradicted itself by saying that the colors were excellent as a "pro" and that blue/green was not quite as accurate as a "con" (make up your mind, CNET). I, however, found that the colors are perfectly reproduced and a side-by-side with the Samsung revealed no apparent disparities. Both sets were producing the same shades when running the Aquarium 2.

We went through a startling odyssey in trying to get a new television that we liked after our 2-year-old 52" Sharp LED died. Not counting the fried 52", we went through four, yes count them four, TV's - a Sharp 60" LC60LE631U, two Sharp 60" LC60LE635U's, and a 60" Samsung PN59D8000, all LED's and all plagued with problems right out of the box ... dim areas on light screens, flashlight "bleed-through" on dark scenes, horrendous pixelation. You name it, we went through it.

We were unwilling to go with a Plasma TV because - although plasmas are highly rated in picture quality - they suffer their own series of potential problems, such as screen burn-in, occasional dead pixels, and that they tend to run hotter than LED's, etc., etc. Also, frankly, we simply didn't like the display of even the top-notch plasmas as opposed to the LED's. One came close - the Panasonic TC-P65VT30, but it was out of stock at all retailers within 100 miles, and it was about five inches too big for our entertainment center. [NOTE: SEE UPDATE BELOW] On the other hand, we very much liked the fourth pixel (yellow) which Sharp added to their LED TV's. Even so, after going through four of their sets (including the 52" that died) with all sorts of issues, we were not willing to try a fourth. The Samsung UN59D8000, however, looked like rubbish by comparison. All of those TV's went straight back to the retailer.

This whole mess took days to sort out, and numerous phone calls to Sharp Customer Service. Sharp had us send photographs of the issues, and they all agreed that the sets had problems. They apologized profusely for our trouble. However, when push came to shove, they were wholly unhelpful and told us to make another expedition to a retailer - both to return the bad set, and to pick out a new one.
