I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good basic tv.
George J. Vernau
After 4 months of use, the TV began to flicker on/off until it completely showed no picture at all on the screen.
Eric Canoy
The picture looks very vivid and once calibrated the colors seem quite good to me.

Note: Please look at the end of this review for important updates.

This unit is very similar in features to most sets in this class and price range. I paid $349 for it at a local store and believe that the sweet spot in terms of price/features for this TV would be somewhere under $400. I'll add details on the various features of this unit below.

Appearance

Externally, this TV has a nice appearance with a glossy finish and thin bezels. It uses LED backlighting, which allows it to be thinner and lighter than the older LCD/fluorescent based units.

The TV has some controls on the side of the unit (a nice touch, as it allows you to perform quick actions while setting it up). Another positive point (in my opinion) is that some of the HDMI connectors are on the back of the TV, allowing shorter HDMI cables and consequently less excess cable dangling from the back of your A/V rack/unit.

Inputs & Outputs

This set has 3 HDMI inputs and a "mixed" component/composite input (meaning you can only use one or the other.) It also comes with a PC Input (D-Sub 15 pin), the usual RF input, two audio inputs and two audio outputs, being one of them optical.

Of note is the USB connector input: When plugging a USB stick, the TV will read its contents and allow the playback of movies, music and photos. I normally don't use this feature on my TVs, but a quick test revealed that it cannot deal with H.264 content inside Matroska (MKV) containers (most TVs can't anyway.) I haven't tested music or photos, but assume it can play MP3s and display JPG files without problems. The USB connector is on the side of the unit, right next to some of the HDMI connectors.

Picked up this TV when it was $379.99 at Best Buy. I've had it a week and wasn't sure if I made a good decision or not, and if you're reading this you are probably asking the same question.

There aren't many reviews for this set for whatever reason, so I figured I'd add whatever I can to help people out. Let's start with the design of the TV. Aesthetically it won't win any awards but it does have a pleasing look with the typical black matte finish. The most pleasing thing about he overall look of the tv is the thin bezel, which is harder to find in a tv of this price range. The stand is easily assembled with 4 screws and feels very sturdy. The screen isn't gloss but it does have some light reflection in bright rooms so proper placement and lighting can effect the picture more than other LCD/LED's I own.

The picture quality on the set is really the most important aspect, and it's also where some points of contention might rise. I read numerous reviews of sharp tv's and some are known for having slightly off colors, most notably muted reds and deep blues. One review I read said this model does that exactly, and it may very well be the case, but in all honesty I can't notice it. The picture looks very vivid and once calibrated the colors seem quite good to me. If you're into perfection you may notice color issues more then me but honestly for the price the picture and color saturation is quite good. I had no problem getting flesh tones to look good and keep everything within a balanced spectrum.

The biggest surprise I noticed on this tv was it's contrast ratio. It's amazingly good for being an LED tv let alone the price tag attached. It has some of the best blacks I've seen outside the high end plasmas and the whites reach a nice bright sparkle when needed.

Verified Purchase
Decent television if you can get a good deal on it (I paid $357.00 with shipping and taxes included in this price), but two somewhat annoying drawbacks. The first, which only happens less than 1 percent of the time and is temporary, is when the picture gets a weird "squiggly" quality to its resolution on certain images, most noticeable when looking at peoples' faces on-screen; that is, the contours of the face and body do not look defined - as in a solid line - but rather foggy, wavy, and grainy. Think of it like this; draw a shape - square, circle, triangle, or whatever - with solid, straight, sharp lines. Then draw the same shape with a shaky hand and the pencil barely touching the paper. And the worst part is, there is nothing in the settings that can fix this; I tried adjusting them for two days. Now, again, this is only noticeable on certain images and usually only when there is slow movement.

The other problem was that it does not come with any screws for the base, and you only find that out if you read the manual cover-to-cover and are lucky to notice the small sentence in there regarding this ridiculous oversight. I mean, how cheap and miserly is Sharp to not include an obviously necessary, yet very small and inexpensive part??? I had to search seven different hardware stores to find screws that were the proper length and width, and had the correct type of threading on them.

Other that those two things it's an ok tv set. The sound is slightly above average, considering the size of the speakers, and other than the occasional issue that I've mentioned, the picture is pretty nice.
