This is supposed to be Sharps "lower end" TV in the their large TV line up, but it performs better then the its higher priced brothers. I have been through a few Tvs this model year. I have had the Sharp 847u, The Sharp ELITE, Panasonic VT50, Samsung pn64e8000, and Sony XBX929. I had all the heavy hitters from all the name brands and this TV can stand up to all of them no problem! I was very surprised at the black levels it can produce being an edge lit LED. I would say it is on par with the sony and samsung, but a click behind the ELITE and Panasonic. It is certainly a much better then its more expensive brother the 847 or the 745. Both of witch had bad clouding and bad black levels that left the picture flat and washed out. This TV has very good shadow detail giving you a very realistic picture in night scenes.

Colors are very saturated and true to life, giving the Panasonic a run for its money and outdoing the ELITE to my eyes. This model does not feature Sharps Quatron extra yellow pixel, and I think it benefits from not having it. There always seemed to be something off with color on the Sharp models that had the extra yellow pixel, something I don't see with this TV. There is also no lack of color adjustment in the setting menu. I have plugged in CNET settings with a few minor tweaks to back-lighting, contrast, brightness and sharpness that suit my room and eyes better Overall the color reproduction on this TV if superb, as good as the plasmas I returned.
Motion handling is very good to my eyes, better then the ELITE and hanging with the VT50. If you are one for de-judder processing or soap opera effect during movies this TV gives you full control of just how much smoothing you want with very tweakable controls.

I agree with most of the comments made by other reviewers here. The apps, particularly Netflix, do not work great on this TV. But that is not a problem at all for me. I have my TV set up as a monitor. It simply has to display the picture coming out of my sound system. My cable box and bluray player feed into the sound system, and the sound system has an output for the TV's picture. I use my bluray player's Netflix features, and prefer it that way. And I don't care about using the internet on my TV, either.

This TV has a fairly nice picture. I went to numerous electronic stores when shopping, and this TV looks pretty much the same as nearly all of the other 60" LED sets, with one notable exception. There is a Samsung (the one with the very thin frame around the screen and 4-legged base) that was just WAY nicer than everything else. No matter which store I entered, that Samsung really stood out. But the price was also quite a bit more. I wasn't willing to spend an extra $500 for the Samsung.

This Sharp is priced well and I am mostly happy with the picture quality. My one criticism involves watching sports. When a ball (or any other object) is moving quickly across the screen, it looks like a weird blur on my TV. I believe another reviewer mentioned something about that, suggesting that you can correct this with the settings. I will play with it and update if I find anything.

If I were to do it all over again, I would still go with this TV.

____***** UPDATE 8/24/12 *****____
I found the "motion enhancement" option under "picture settings". I played with the three choices (high/low/off) and it looks noticeably better when set to "off".

Hi all! My wife and I purchased this from RC Willey in Utah in April 2012. The average price for this unit is right at $1500.00. We were in for a 32" or smaller (nothing special) to replace a TV that we lost in a flood last year. Well, after we saw this baby in a wall unit at RC Willey, we could not pass it up. We also purchased an oak console with four doors on the front and opaque glass to hide all of today's electronics (Xbox, PS3, Hybrid Digital Radio Receiver, Stereo Receiver, etc). Sorry, I digress. This television is IN YOUR FACE 3D quality, even though it is an LED 1080p, with a 120Hz refresh rate. (With today's fast special effects such as transformers, we wanted something a little faster than 60Hz so we could actually "see" the fast motion and not notice it as a blur. This is the ticket! You don't need 240Hz unless you got your eyes calibrated at the last robocon convention in Vegas). In addition, we do not have to stream videos from Amazon Instant Video though my Blu-Ray player as the internet is incorporated into the television. Quite incredible. We watch a lot of streaming movies from Amazon and Vudu at around 7Mbps @ HD and HDX. However, I must warn you...you will be turning your head from side to side with the fast action, even at a 10-foot distance from TV to sofa, as the screen is incredible large and crystal clear. I cannot wait until the 2012-2013 NFL season starts. One more thing...For all you NASCAR fans, the cars feel like they are going to come out of the screen. When you get the "dashboard" view from the HD internal cameras, you will feel as though you are driving the car yourself (well, at least riding in it, anyway). In summary, you will be very happy with this model.Read more ›
