Sharp Aquos LC-70LE640U


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

Crisp, bright picture. Dark black levels

Unattractive interface and remote

Sharp LC-70LE640U


If you ask Sharp ( or me ), one of the best reasons to buy a new HDTV, especially if you have one already, is to go big. After introducing massive 70- and 80-inch LCDs last year at prices that in context actually deserve the word "affordable," the...

The relatively inexpensive Sharp LC-LE640U series delivers accurate color thanks to ample picture controls, as well as a matte screen that works well in bright rooms. Its feature set hits all of the right notes for the price, including excellent help...

I noted somewhat lighter black levels and uneven lighting across the screen, both especially obvious in dark scenes under home theater lighting. The Sharp also failed to properly handle film-based (1080p/24) sources, causing slight stutter in certain...

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

Sharp LC-70LE640U Review – 70-inch LED LCD HDTV


The model is one of the inexpensive 70-inch LED TV sets available in the market. It lacks active or passive 3D technology compatibility. But the manufacturer has launched the device with 1080p HD resolution and a set of advanced networking and internet...

Sharp has further designed the model with a set of advanced online features including built in Wi-Fi and Smart Central TV internet suite integration. The features allow users to browse though their favorite websites on the TV screen without using any...

Sharp LC-70LE640U LED LCD HDTV Reviewed


If one 70-inch LED HDTV wasn't enough for you, don't worry. Sharp has another one in the LC-70LE732U, and this new model picks up right where the last one left off, adding refined features.

The LC-70LE640U has a 70-inch screen and a 1080p resolution ; The edge-lit LED design allows for a slim cabinet and good energy efficiency (it is EnergyStar-certified) ; 120Hz technology is available to reduce motion blur and film judder ; LCDs can be...

This set lacks 3D capability ; Edge-lit LED-based LCD TVs can suffer from brightness-uniformity issues, and this TV lacks local dimming to improve black level and uniformity ; LCD viewing angles are not as good you'll find with a plasma TV ; Despite...

Last year, Sharp earned our "Best LCD-LED HDTV" award for its 70-inch LC-70LE732U, primarily for its game-changing size/price combination. The new LC-70LE640U basically picks up where that model left off, with an MSRP of $3,299 and a street price...

"Good tv for the price, big but not so bright"


Overall we got this for an oscar party and for the price $2500 at costco it is a really good deal for the size. The setup and cable layouts are pretty standard - no svideo but 4hdmi and 2 usb ports. We like it but it takes some getting used to. We have...

A large tv to fit a large room, it has a pretty good picture and does not dim the lights when you turn it on. The picture is so big you feel like you are handling the camera. Some of the controls are a bit confusing but setup took about 20 minutes.

Still cannot program with my dvr, not sure of the difference with the le733 model series. Picture is good from the front but washed out from angles of about 50degrees to 0. Not bright as I would like it, with ps3 it is rather dark.

Great Pic, Until It Deteriorates...


Bought this model at BB in January '13...carried it home, plugged it in, and great pic, once one learns to play with internal settings. Audio is run through my Yamaha Rec with L/C/R speakers, so sound is fine. TV was used from January through mid...

Easy Set up, Outstanding Pic, Initially

Plus & Minus Density Flares From Corners & Lower Screen Edge

Sharp Smart TV's are not very smart


I have a Sharp Aquos 70" TV. I have been happy with the TV until the past few days. Sharp has made a company decision to control the APPS they provide on their TV's. Sharp has decided to partner with several companies that obviously generate revenue...

Sharp LC-70LE64OU - - Lot of Bang for the Buck


I like my movies and I like my sports.....and what better way to watch them than on a large flat-screen tv? My last TV was a 57" Hitachi projection screen, which, while it offered a terrific picture was a huge beast of a television and wasn't quite as...

Bright beautiful picture HD or with HDMI bluray player connection. Easy setup

Internet usage not very easy. Needs better sound

Beautiful picture, very easy setup. Not the best sound or internet usage.
