5.0 out of 5 stars Good Gaming TV, June 6, 2014
This review is from: Sharp LC-39LE551U 39-inch Aquos HD 1080p 60Hz LED TV (2014 Model) (Electronics)
I bought this TV specifically for use with my PC and gaming consoles. It will need a bit of calibration right out of the box, but just put it in dynamic mode and it'll look great for gaming. Picture is nice and vibrant, and I didn't notice any ghosting or problems of the sort with Mario Kart 8.

Aesthetically, this is my favorite TV so far. The borders are a lot thinner than other TVs I've seen in this class, and it's very slim in the back. I especially love the stand. It looks nice, feels quite heavy, and is just one whole big piece. You simply slide the metal rods into the TV and you're set. I didn't even feel the need to put in the screws because the connection was already so secure.

If anyone wants to buy a TV on a budget, I would definitely recommend this product. There are other great brands in this class like Samsung, but Sharp manages to offer a cheaper price while not being too far behind the competition. It's a great looking TV when it's on and off, and definitely deserves a try.

If there was one thing for me to complain about, it would be the remote. As nice as the TV looks, the remote feels light, hollow, and a bit cheap. Not a big deal because it works fine and looks ok, but I prefer to have a little weight and heft to my remotes.

Thanks for the review. Did you use a calibration DVD for the tv and if so, can you share the settings?

Sorry it took me so long to see this. I didn't use a calibration DVD. I set one input to Dynamic for games, and the other I left alone for my PC. I think the dynamic mode looks fantastic for video games, but I feel the brightness is too harsh when browsing on my PC. I don't have any problems with the default settings and I don't think anything looks out of place. It's a tiny bit dark I suppose, so I recommend tweaking up the brightness.

I am also looking at this tv primarily for gaming (mainly console FPSs) so how is the input lag? I had a 40in Toshiba and the input lag was so bad even in gaming mode that I had to use an old CRT tv for my gaming

My boyfriend got the same panasonic tv and went mad over it. He's a FIFA and COD addict and has three TVs setup along with full-rotating mounts from this brand called FlexiMounts. It's pretty cool the way he can move them around. And not too overpriced either, so a pretty decent buy.

My friend just LOVED this sharp tv. She's one of those HD-only freaks, and she adored the picture quality. I am planning to purchase one for my son. How does the TV work with an XBox? I also read somewhere about a lot of TV related accidents with children, so I plan to mount it on the wall. The brand I considered was FlexiMounts. It has a lot of choices to decide from.

Useful review, thanks! But I'd like to know if anyone out there has ordered a tv mount to go with this sharp tv and if so, can you recommend a model. I don't really care for the low profile or distance to the wall, but I want this mount to be more sturdy. My friend bought a FlexiMounts tv mount and loved it. I'll probably buy the same, but I'm open to suggestions!

Take your fleximount spam elsewhere. I am looking for a new tv and every tv I look at has many, many, many of your spam comments. Very annoying please leave!
