Not worth the money

 

I have had several Sharp products and thought this was going to be the best of the best. It ended up being the worst of the worst. After a year and half of a watching minimal amounts of TV I have only a black screen to look at. Out of warranty so it will cost more to repair than the TV is worth. Going out in the trash and buying a better make and model. Customer Service was helpful if you can reach them, not availabel on weekends.

Do not buy Sharp Aquos

 

My Sharp Aquos LCD TV broke after 4 years of use. I called customer service and they told me, it was out of warranty so I can try taking it to a tv repair store myself.

Sharp Aquos LC-40LE700UN LCD HDTV Review - Intro

 

The Sharp LC-40LE700UN ($1399 MSRP) is a solid performer, but its internet features are pretty sparse compared to its competitors. This slightly older model is perhaps best thought of as a prequel to the streaming content age of TV.

The Sharp LC-40LE700UN is certainly not a headline-maker of a TV, but we found lots of reasons that it should be given some consideration if you're shopping for a moderately-sized unit. It performed well in most of our tests, and its special features,...

Sharp Aquos LC-32LE700UN

 

The Sharp AQUOS (LC-32LE700UN) is a 32-inch LCD TV and is part of Sharp's LE700 AQUOS series which features a Full-Array LED backlight system. It features 1080p X-Gen panel and offers dynamic contrast ratios of more than 2,000,000:1. The LE700 series...

LED backlight ; 120Hz refresh rate ; Good black performance ; Four HDMI inputs

No network connection ; Doesn’t use a local-dimming backlight ; Obnoxious branding on the front bezel

The Sharp Aquos LC-32LE700UN is a solid product and a major step up from most any older CFL-backlit LCD TV, but the competition in this price range is heated these days.

Sharp Aquos LC-40LE700UN

 

With the Aquos LC-40LE700UN HDTV ($1,499.99 list), Sharp introduces its new full-array LED backlighting system, which is designed to produce a high contrast ratio and a crisp, bright picture while using a fraction of the power of previous models. For...

Affordable. Solid color and contrast-ratio performance. Strong feature set. Energy efficient

Colors become less saturated at wider viewing angles. Some deinterlacing issues. Low peak brightness for an LED set

The affordable, 40-inch Sharp Aquos LC-40LE700UN produces a solid HD picture, offers plenty of connectivity ports and cool Web features, and thanks to LED backlighting, it's energy efficient too.

Sharp LC-40LE700UN

 

Inexpensive for an LCD with LED backlighting; extremely energy efficient; effective video processing that can separate antiblur and dejudder functions; intriguing selection of interactive widgets; superb built-in support including live help with remote...

Black levels not as deep as LED and some non-LED-based LCDs; less-accurate grayscale; glossy screen reflects ambient light; minor backlight uniformity issues.

The Sharp LC-LE700UN's LED backlighting doesn't elevate its picture quality beyond the LCD norm, but does help make it the most efficient TV we've ever tested.

Sharp LC-46LE700UN

 

LCD TV makers have always charged a premium for LED backlighting. In fact, the first LED-based LCD TV Sharp released, the inch-thick XS series, debuted last year at a cool $11,000 MSRP for the 52-inch model. LED has become a lot more mainstream since...

Sharp LC-46 LE 700 E

 

The Sharp LC-46 LE 700 E TV is a Full HD, 46-inch LCD TV, available since summer 2009. Sharp lists the device for 1,599 GBP, but it's available through online retailers from just 1,100 GBP.

Decent 24p ; Excellent contrast ; Energy-efficient

Violet and pink tints ; Low motion clarity ; Imperfect detail resolution in HD signals ; Picture depends strongly on viewing-angle and lacks uniformity

The Sharp’s biggest plus point could well be its affordable retail price — just 1,100 GBP! User-friendly operation and low power consumption add to the list of positives, making the Sharp an excellent everyday TV. For more advanced home-cinema tasks,...

Sharp LC-32LE700UN LED LCD HDTV

 

With the new LE700 Series, Sharp's enters the full-array LED category of LCD TVs. However, the company opted not to include local dimming to produce deeper blacks. How does that affect the performance of this 32-inch, 1080p TV? Read on to find out....

The LE700 Series is, thus far, the only full-array LED system I've encountered that doesn't add local dimming to further improve the depth of blacks. Although the LC-32LE700UN has a deep enough black level to produce good overall contrast, it couldn't...

Often, we reviewers tend to classify smaller-screen TVs as second-room options, something you might put in a family room or bedroom for occasional viewing. If that's what you're looking for, then there are plenty of less-expensive options at the...

"Great buy!"

 

It may not dim like the other led tvs, but it's definitely brighter and dims well enough that i don't notice anything.

The sleep timer will turn the tv off right in the middle of a movie if you don't catch the warning, it doesn't recognize when you're watching it.

Consumer review by:

"So so quality"

 

Had it for about 15 months then yellow vertical lines began to appear on the screen. TV out of the 1 year warranty and repair (replacing main pc board) cost is over $500. Will buy SONY which offers 3 years warranty.

ease of operation

suspect poor quality control, please see summary for details
