The TV for the One Percent


Sharp's Elite Pro-60X5FD has to-die-for black levels, glorious color, enough ports to fill two TVs, and just about every eyeball-pleasing extra technologists have invented. Only a couple of usability quirks stop this panel from achieving perfection.

Sharp Elite PRO-70X5FD


In the United States these days the word "Elite" has a negative connotation evoking snooty haves vs. gritty have-nots, Wall Street vs. Main Street, and them vs. us. The Sharp Elite PRO-X5FD, the first result of Sharp's licensing agreement with Pioneer...

The picture of the Sharp Elite PRO-X5FD LED TV delivers deeper black levels and better contrast than any other LCD or plasma on the market. Unlike other full-array local dimming TVs, it maintains its superior picture from normal viewing angles and...

Even with its superb performance, it's impossible to call the gratuitously expensive Elite a good value. Blue/green areas are less accurate than we expect from a TV of this caliber, uniformity and off-angle aren't quite as good as plasma, and its...

The overpriced Sharp Elite LED-based LCD produces the second-best overall picture quality of any TV we've reviewed since 2008.

Sharp Elite PRO-60X5FD


With the Elite PRO-60X5FD, Sharp resurrected a fabled name in the prosumer TV realm.

This is one tall, nearly 6,000-dollar order.

Sharp Elite PRO-70X5FD 70-inch LED/LCD TVReview


David Birch-Jones checks out one of the most expensive TVs on the market. Does it earn its lofty price tag?

The only downside here is the price: Suggested Retail Price of $5999 for the 60-inch model and $8499 for the 70-inch model under review. Compared to Pioneer's first generation Elite plasma set (a 50" 720p model that had an SRP of $20,000), the new...

"If you have the money, get it."


Very good 3D,size, look, very clear picture especially for its size, lots of options, not too heavy, good for gaming, excellent colors/blacks

Did have an issue with the remote not connecting to the TV after the 1st year (the power button wasn't working),so they quickly swapped out a new TV. No issues since, price is steep, probably better cost effective solutions, but I didnt care :-).

"This HDTV is simply one of the best in the market."


This is one of the HDTV that I highly recommend you to get. Also, feel free to check out on information on what is the best HDTV to get for this year.

This HDTV produces the black level that exceeds the Panasonic Kuro plasma HDTV. The picture quality is just sensational with the help of local dimming technology.

Can't really think of one. If I really have to say one then I have to say that the sound quality can not be compared to the home theater quality.

"Broke in 30 mins."


The TV was set up and delivered and I must say I was not impressed. The picture did not blow me away. My Samsung 8000 looks much better. For example, when playing Xbox tennis, the red clay of Roland Garros would change shade as I played. I'm not sure...

None, unless you like the picture to constantly change color.

$7000 for a TV that didn't last 30 minutes!

"The TV by which all other TV's are judged."


If you want great performance for ANYTHING even if you just watch normal tv channels, shell out the cash for this bad boy. You'll be glad you did!

- VERY deep black level, darker than plasma's

The Price, but you can't have a nice TV and be cheap about it.

Finest TV on the Market - Hands Down!


We went through a startling odyssey in trying to get a new television that we liked after our 2-year-old 52" Sharp LED died. Not counting the fried 52", we went through four, yes count them four, TV's - a Sharp 60" LC60LE631U, two Sharp 60"...
