I observed the same "soap opera effect" out of the box that other reviewers commented on and followed thier instructions for how to eliminate this. After a little tweaking, motion seemed natural. The first thing I tried out was the Netflix app. After downloading an update, it launched Netflix no problem. After initial buffering of 5-10 seconds loading a movie everything played smoothly with zero lag whatsoever.
Incredibly bright picture, Great Color accuracy
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.
Great picture... as long as you get the settings right
When I first turned on this set I thought the picture quality and color saturation were simply stunning...but. While watching our first well-produced drama program and then a golf broadcast, problems soon became apparent. Even though I'm reasonably well versed in TV set-up, were it not for our professional installer, I'm fairly sure I would have put this 140 lb set back in the box and shipped it back.
Excellent picture quality
The picture is crystal clear and almost looks 3d due to the amazing depth it shows. We looked at it next to the 70" Aquos as well as other LED TV's and the Aquos line by far has the sharpest, clearest picture. If you are considering either the 70" or the 80" it obviously comes down to economics, but I can tell you the 80" definitely dwarfs the 70" when they are next to each other.
Value per square inch is hard to beat on the Sharp LE745U series.
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.
Just what I wanted
My picture quality is amazing good and I would put it up against anything sony or sammy has to offer. TV had plenty of inputs for all of my equipment and works great. Sound isnt to great but thats to be expected onany slim tv. My home sound system took care of this issue. Not really messed with the apps because I have a computer and xbox 360 for that. I would recommend this tv to anyone looking for a great picture at a great price.
Smooth color gradients
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.
Clearer moving image
The Sharp LC-52LE640U is a part of Sharp's 2012 series of LED-LCD TVs. At 52 inches, the LC-52LE640U is ultraslim, on a narrow bezel. It offers edge-lit LED backlighting, an X-Gen LCD panel, and 120hz refresh rate. The SmartCentral user interface with onboard WiFi and streaming content apps (Netflix, CinemaNow, Vudu, etc) and Aquos Advantage Live. This model has four HDMI inputs.
Great TV.. for the price
The picture is much larger than my old 52", ofcourse. Picture quality looks alot better too. I use my test movie Star Ware 3 opening battle scene over Coresant. I had both TVs next to each other to compare, switching back and forth with an HDMI cable. I can see the difference. My Samsung has 150,000:1 contrast and 240 hz. This Sharp is much higher at 4,000,000:1 but only 120hz. I was worried about this, but scenes where I could see motion blur in a regular 60hz are not there in this 120hz Sharp.
I love almost everything about this tv. The picture is beautiful. Everything worked great out of the box. 3D is just as good as movie theaters. I highly recommend it.
My only complaint is that built in internet is just OK. It works well with several built in sites such as Netflix. However, I hoped I could use it like a built-in omputer. Maybe I expected too much. Browsing is difficult without a wireless keyboard/mouse input.
Bright Picture Capability with strong Peak Whites
Well, there is hardly anything to currently compete with this 80 inch TV in size. At $5500 or so it's not an inexpensive option and does not seem to offer the fantastic value proposition that some of the other Sharp sizes like 70" and 60" have. There is a Samsung UN75ES9000 75-inch model due to hit the market soon. It will sell for just less than $10,000 if initial reports are true so I guess that makes this Sharp a discount model.
70 inch of 3D goodness
The Sharp LC70C8470U 70in 1080p Quattron 3D LED LCD TV w/ 3D Compatibility delivers a jaw dropping Picture and Theater quality 3D. I really have never been a fan of 3D films. I thought "Hmm... headaches poor picture quality, etc." After seeing Capt. Eo and Honey I Shrunk The Audience at the Kodak Theatre in Disneyland, I wasn't impressed and got headaches from both films which are short in length."
Bright Picture Capability with strong Peak Whites.
One of the reasons I've mentioned plasma TVs throughout this review in comparison with these new huge Sharp LED TVs is that they compete in price and value. Sharp has really set the benchmark in these very large LED-LCD screen sizes with compelling pricing. Panasonic and Samsung have great plasma TVs with some superior but very different picture attributes. It really depends on your needs. Regardless, there are plenty of 60" plasma choices and even some 65".
Not perfect, but good enough for my needs
If you have this tv, make sure you play with the picture settings. Lately I have noticed that the picture quality with all of the pre-programmed options was a bit lacking. I played with the settings, and now it looks much nicer. I made several changes, but the biggest improvements came from lowering the backlight a little, increasing the reds a bit and raising the sharpness all the way.
Beautiful HD Picture and so easy to set up
I had seen the AQUOS in a 50" and 60" so I knew how beautiful the HD picture was. The 32" did not let me down...you have to have HD or the picture will not look as nice. TV and DVD setup was a piece of cake. Only small work was to call Brighthouse to sync up some functions with the remote. Would recomment the Sharp Aquos in any size. Enjoy!!!
