UPDATE !!! I bought this tv in November 2014, brand new off of Amazon. I left 5 stars...boy what a difference 14 months makes. This thing is trash! what a piece of junk! when you look here on Amazon it seems that some of the sharp brand tv's have high ratings. That's because people leave reviews right after they buy it. BUT wait a few months or a year. Google "sharp aquos" issues and watch how many things pop up! and it seems for A LOT of their LED's there are issues

yes the picture will look great! yes you will have lots of options to control the picture just how you like it...etc and then you will leave a nice review! All seems awesome....UNTIL they're not.

8 months after purchase, there were bright little hot spots scattered around random areas of the screen and only show when lighter colors are displayed. Can't see them at all when there's dark colors on screen. but they look terrible

Now all of a sudden, for no reason and just at random the tv will flicker black and the screen goes almost completely dark after a bit ...to the point where you can hardly see anything at all. It has nothing to do with any of the connections as I've checked...its just the tv. Its 14 months old and its crap! now there's even more of those bright white hot spots too!

if you get ANY sharp LED tv , get a 5 year warranty! you are going to need it. On consumers affairs Sharp LED tv's have a 1 star rating out of 5 after 108 reviews ! STAY

I paid about $1500 for this thing plus another $100+ for a soundbar because you'll need one, speakers are junk too.

STAY AWAY you've been warned

First TV that arrived was only carried in by a single delivery guy. When you test this TV, use a WHITE screen and be sure to view the edges. Mine had black flares on the bottom which I noticed while viewing a hockey game. Sharp's customer service was OK, but Amazon's has been great so far. Replacement arrived this AM and it seems better but I still need an hour or so with it to adjust the settings. The repair guy that Sharp sent said that the black flares were caused by "pressure points" in the frame which were probably caused by the television being dragged while in the box during delivery.


I have adjusted the settings based on what the other reviewer had posted. For my tastes, that picture is a little too dark. I increased the brightness and sharpness a little bit. However, those settings are a great place to start.

For the price, this seems like a good tv. You definitely have to tweak it a bit to get good results though. I still notice some slight light distortion at the very bottom which goes up about an inch and a half. This could be caused by the weight of the television upon the bottom of itself. It is only really noticeable on a plain white screen, and it is much better than the previous one I had. Hopefully this will fade in time once the tv settles in.

In regards to support from Sharp, well, it was OK, but they made me send them pictures. Amazon simply said, "OK, we will replace it, no charge for shipping, no problem." You can't beat customer service like that. Everyone I spoke with at Amazon was very kind and professional. Thanks Amazon for putting customer satisfaction first and making the whole process as painless as possible.

This is a review of tv...not Amazon. I did not buy from Amazon. I'm on my second tv from Sharp. First one bought on 7-7-12.Repair guy came out to do a check up per extended warranty agreement and said I needed a new tv. It had bright white pixels on bottom of screen. No big deal I thought its a bad panel it happens. When I got the replacement, it was ok for about 3 months they appeared again. Even more than my last. A different tech said they would turn into clouds eventually. Got the run around from Sharp, eventually Sharp offered me a buy out, but it wasn't enough to even buy one of the exact same model. Not that I would. All I want is to be made whole again on this purchase. There's a reason, I discovered later why Sharp can make a tv this big so cheap (If you can call what I paid for it cheap) Inferior panels. Look at this on display in stores before you buy. Look at different backgrounds. If you see tiny white bright pixels...Run! It is in my opinion it's a piece of junk. If you do decide to buy one of these, buy the extended warranty. Because you will probably need it. Better yet look at another brand. I have 3 other flat screens of different brands and not a bright white pixel in the bunch. I will probably take a hit on this. But I will do so knowing better. NO MORE SHARP PRODUCTS IN MY HOME!!!!! If you have one of these and you like it, that's great. It does have a good picture, but for my money, I think it should last longer.
Just my opinion. Buyer Beware.

BUYER BEWARE!!! The worst customer service of my life. Several thousand dollars for a tv that lasted 3 months. We have called Sharp over and over and gone to the top and they do not have a contractor who will work for them in a city as large as Phoenix and have not offered to replace or ship the tv. We are stuck with a new broken tv and they simply don't care. I don't see them being around long with this level of quality and service. My employer has the same tv and it also only lasted a few months before the screen blacked out. They also could not get Sharp to repair it and ended up throwing it out for an LG.
