4RTH star because of value...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sharp LC-48LE551U 48-Inch Aquos HD 1080p 60Hz LED TV (2014 Model) (Electronics)
I bought this TV as a second TV in the bedroom. Someone in a review suggested these Sharp models are not 1080, I can vouch they are in fact 1080 HDTVs. The picture quality as far as sharpness is right on, clear sharp pictures. In the area of color reproduction is where I have some disappointment. The TV has a slight overall bluish tint to it. That makes the colors appear washed out at times and not true. I have calibrated/adjusted the settings, all of them. Usually a bluish tint suggests a white balance setting issue, too bright a cell lite, etc. I have tried various settings to correct the problem, it improves the color, but does not totally remove the bluish tint/haze. I have asked for owners to share their calibration settings, but have yet to receive a reply. If you have any suggestions please respond, it will be greatly appreciated. So bottom-line this set is a 3 star "its okay" rating, but I gave this set 4 stars based on the value you get for $499.00; I recommend this set if you are looking in that price range and don't want a lot of bells and whistles.

I just ordered this tv & would love to know if you do come across any recommended calibration settings.

I havent checked on this specific model but AVSforums has calibration specs for almost every HDTV out there so if you search there you might find what youre looking for.

* A better calibrated white point with lots of backlighting can be uncomfortably bright. For movie mode, 50 or less is a lot easier on the eyes. Personally, I do not use any backlighting at all.
** Movie has a noticeable red cast, while the other temperature settings produce blue tints. The Aquos HD picture is either warm or cool; there is no middle ground.

I am not familiar with wall mounts, don't use them.
