  • The Sharp LE650 series sets the big-screen LCD TV value bar high with very good picture quality for the price.


  • There aren't many 60-inch LED Smart TV's that can be had for $1,100. Actually, at the time of this review, we were only able to find one near that price: The Vizio E601i. And since we've not had the opportunity to review that particular model, we can't draw a comparison. However, we can say that the Sharp LE650 offers great value.

    You won't get inky blacks, deep shadow detail or spectacular contrast from this TV, but what you will get is excellent color, outstanding brightness and an interface that is a delight to use.


  • The Sharp LC-70LE650 is a huge 70-inch LCD HDTV with very good overall image quality as it has good black levels and color-accuracy. The sound could be better and the price is high compared to other large TVs, but it is an impressive set.


  • Although priced well for a large 3D TV, the Sharp LC-LE745U series can't muster the 2D picture quality to earn our recommendation as a good value.


  • Value is what the LC-70LE745U is all about. Its got a strong set of features with varying qualities among them, but most of all its the price per square inch equation that Sharp is really winning on. Plasma TVs usually give these large Sharp's a good run for their money, but in 70" Sharp sort of rules the day with only a handful of TVs to compete. There are a few 65" plasma TVs such as the Panasonic TC-P65ST50 which sells for a similar $2500 or so. Samsung's new 75" ES9000 is much more expensive.


  • With decent picture quality and great pricing, the Sharp LC-LE640U series makes a strong case for mainstream TV shoppers who want to go bigger.


  • The Sharp LC-52LE640U ($1199.99 MSRP) is one in a series of large-screen, 1080p, Smart TVs, with a heavy motion processing feature. All of these televisions come with AQUOS Link, which allows communication between several AQUOS devices, like DVD players, as well as DLNA to share content across computers and phones. On such big displays, picture quality becomes paramount.


  • Sharp's Aquos LE640U line is full of big HDTVs with gorgeous pictures, but their interface isn't as polished as other screens.
