I shopped around for awhile trying to decide between plasma and LED. I went to a few stores to see the TVs in person and to compare all the different brands and features. I had seen commercials for the Sharp Quattron so I specifically wanted to check it out.

Hands down the Quattron has the best, brightest, and clearest picture amongst the LED/LCDs. I looked at all the plasmas which just seemed so dull compared to the LEDs and specifically the Quattron. I wanted the LED because it weighed less, consumed less energy, was brighter, and didn't have the risk of burn in or a plasma TV hum, or the glare issue everyone is talking about. It comes down to personal preference really and the debate will never end over which technology is better. But you CAN use facts to determine which to purchase. If you don't care about viewing angle, and want a brighter picture, lower weighing and power consuming product, then you choose LED. The newest LEDs really do have good black levels compared to prior years LCDs.

The Quattron's colors truly are more crisp and richer than even other LEDs that I compared it to--it was so obvious with all of them side by side (especially with scenes containing yellow). I found the colors to be pretty realistic, true, bold, and rich. Some reviews I read were saying how the colors seemed unreal or fake. You be the judge. You can calibrate this TV however you want so each to his own with regards to color. I left it on standard and everything looked great right out of the box.

It isn't as "fast" on paper as some of the 240hz models (mainly those with 3d), but it doesn't need to be. I'm not worried about motion because my 3 year old regular LCD with 120hz from samsung handled sports and motion just fine, and this TV does as well.

At first I couldn't believe how unbelievably clear things looked! But then it started to weird me out a bit. I felt like I was the camera man and at times it took me out of the story. Also I noticed way too much detail in animated films and they didn't quite seem as fluid as they should be. In action based movies I started noticing that certain parts were suddenly moving a slight bit faster than seemed normal. This is when I really started to investigate all the features. To make a long story short, I figured out that the setting called film mode was giving these awkward effects. Basically turn it off to have a better viewing experience. The TV looks fantastic without the added feature so it's pretty much unnecessary for most situations.
Also make sure you do some color calibrations. Start with the movie AV mode and work your way from there.
Just remember no TV is perfect out of the box no one setting is perfect for everyone. Play around with the colors and settings until it looks good to you. I'm extremely pleased with the purchase!

Reviews play a big part in any television purchase and since I relied heavily on them, it only made sense for me to provide a good review that could help others. Overall, once this TV is setup correctly and all calibration and adjustments are made, it is by far one of the best TVs out there in terms of picture quality, clarify and accuracy. The out of box setting is acceptable but will feel like you are at a big box electronics store. There are a few calibration settings out in various forums so just search for them, try them all and choose your pick. There is some clouding especially when displaying blacks but nothing that will stand out during a normal movie. It is not distracting enough to take your attention away from any movie. Overall blacks are great. TV is loaded with features and options starting from full calibration settings to internet apps galore. One big con is that the navigation menu/software is far from superior. In fact, it can be downright horrible at times. You will get used to it but it could be better. Internet WI-FI built in is great but getting a good signal is not the best. I ended up using a wired connection with a wireless repeater. The TV tuner is borderline. It takes a few seconds to switch between channels regardless of advancing channels or punching in the channel numbers. Like other reviewers said, do not count of advancing channels, just punch in the actual channel you are looking for. Finally, this LED TV is the best value out there. For the price, you cannot go wrong. It is clearly about $200 cheaper than the competition and Sharp makes their own LCD panels. Here are a few calibrations from various sources. I do not take credit for these calibrations.Read more ›

Picture Quality: Outstanding.

- Black Levels: Best I've seen on same sized LEDs. Backlight on max as well (my preference) and it still looked amazing. Tested it on Alien which contains many dark and simply plain black screens. It was hardly brighter than that of the TV being off just because of the backlight.

- 120Hz: Not the best 120Hz I've seen, but it does the job. A TINY amount of motion blur, but definitely not enough to remove a star.

- Viewing angles: Excellent. I have my TV mounted wall about 3 feet higher than eye level. When I stand up to match eye level it looks as if the TV didn't change brightness, color, or anything of the sort.

- Color: Although some may think of that extra yellow sub-pixel for RGBY as a gimmick, it definitely is working in some way. Every color pops especially the yellow/golds. All of this is adjustable if its a turn off to those who do not prefer somewhat over saturated colors.

- Active Contrast: Known to most as "Dynamic Contrast" where contrast will change depending on scene. It works very well here and I actually use it. It instantly gives a noticeably better picture when selected. It slowly changes depending on the brightness of the scene as on other manufacturers' models "Dynamic Contrast" would be a flashy mess as they struggle to keep up with fast moving pictures. Here it works the best I've ever seen.

Aesthetics:
Thin and sexy. Front panel has thin edges as well and simple enough to not distract. Bottom silver edge gives this TV a sleek look along with the lit Sharp logo in the middle. Front panel buttons are touch sensitive and easy to use.

Remote:
Has many buttons so I don't have to go searching through the menu to change something when I can do it on the fly.
