Fantastic TV for the price!
I narrowed it down to this TV compared to similarly priced Samsung or LG. I'd like to say that maybe I got lucky (knock on wood) but the edge-light bleed is not so bad. After reading some forums about edge-light problems some people have had, I was expecting a nightmare. I went from a 32" Philips LCD TV to this and I have to admit the Black level of the Vizio isn't as dark (probably a byproduct of the edge-lighting).
Phenomenal TV ~ Takes HD to a whole new level
This is without a doubt the finest TV that I've ever had the pleasure to use. In comparison to my 5 year old Samsung HD TV, this one makes the Samsung look like a part of ancient history. The first thing that grabs you is the incredibly sleek design. The bezel surrounding the TV is razor thin, thus there is no wasted space at all. Not only does this provide for excellent viewing, but it makes it possible to place the TV in a cabinet that's just slightly larger than the TV picture itself.
Lots of options for image-tweakers
Which is better: a mammoth TV with a mediocre picture, or a smaller TV with a great picture? If you're in the camp that believes size trumps all, Vizio has just the LCD. The Vizio E601I-A3 spans a whopping 60 inches, yet sells for under a grand. Your budget wins, even though your eyes will wish you'd spent a bit more.
Great TV, Takes a little setup to get a great picture, but looks amazing once it is done!
The only other change I made was to increase the backlight from 55 to 65. This just causes a brighter or darker screen. These settings take care of the yellow tint that the TV starts with and makes pictures look great. If you want it darker or lighter you can cut the color temps in half or increase them by the same ratio in order to keep quality colors as well.
Couldn't have picked a better TV
I have had the TV for almost a week now after months of TV research. I saw the specs of this TV about 3 months before I bought and thought it was awesome. But I wanted to see the TV first hand. I really wanted to see what the picture looked like. I finally drove 2 hours to the closest best buy that had it on display. It is awesome!! It is almost too real though. Kind of takes the theatrics out, but for sporting events (Angels and Chargers!!!!) it looks awesome.
Stunning 4K resolution, Very good 1080p upscaling
There are TVs made to please videophiles, and there are TVs made to please consumers. The LG 84LM9600 is designed to make consumers - very wealthy consumers, that is - happy. Is it the best-performing TV we've ever seen in action? No. Is it one of the most impressive TVs we've seen? Absolutely.
The LG84LM9600 is a carnival ride for the eyes. It is purely fun and highly engaging. Yes, it is priced out of reach for most of us.
Does a good job of rendering 1080p
The LG 84LM9600 will set you back a cool Rs.1,700,000 (that's Rs. 17 lakh, in case you were wondering), and it's the price you pay if you want to be on the cutting edge of technology. Even if you happen to have this amount as spare change, we wouldn't advise investing it on a 4K TV right now for one simple reason - Content.
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.
This TV has a really nice picture, 1080p HD, the whole package! Why spend thousands on other LCD or LED TV's, when you can get this one for half that price...
I can't complain about anything. My order shipped ahead of time, all I had to do was plug it in to the wall and hook the cable up and I was watching football within a few minutes of receiving the TV.
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.
Picture quality is outstanding, hooking up a laptop (must have HDMI port on laptop as noted) takes 2 seconds. It really isn't needed anyway since the TV is a full browser, online experience. Unless you have content, pictures/video on your laptop, then you can put them on a USB drive and plug that into the TV.
This was our first flat panel, Smart TV, wireless TV, streaming content TV (both over age 50), so we are beginning users.
Blacks look good/saturated from front and center
At $1498 the UN55ES6100 is priced $100 less than the 55ES6500. It has almost the same features except for some specs making it a great value given the picture and robust features and Samsung Smart TV set. Competition is from the LG 55LM6700 and the Sony KDL-55HX640 and Toshiba 55L6200U and an assortment of plasma TVs.
A large contrast ratio solidified by deep blacks and decently bright whites
The Samsung UN40ES6100 is a solid performer, and a decent TV overall. You're paying a few hundred dollars more than you would for a VIZIO or a Dynex TV of the same size, but that's largely due to the fact that Samsung's included wired or wireless internet with this series, giving you access to their Smart Hub and plenty of streaming options for movies, TV, and music.
Not terrible, but 1920x1080 doesn't cut it at 27 inches or more
1920x1080 spread across a 27 inches diagonal display is about 82 pixels per square inch. This is pretty dismal compared to the 400+ pixels per inch that the human eye can resolve at 12 inches. For a 27" computer screen, I recommend you shop for a monitor with at least a resolution of 2560x1440, many of which are widely available. That will get you 109 pixels per inch, which will look a whole lot better than 82 will.
