Sharp LC-60UQ17U review

 

While not without its flaws, if you love a bright, gorgeous splash of color, the UQ may be up your alley.

Whether or not Sharp’s UQ17U TV is for you may depend entirely on your viewing habits. For us, the TV’s shortfalls in the dark and its poor off-axis viewing make it a precarious choice at best. However, if you love a big, bright, gorgeous splash of...

Sharp's pseudo-4K LC-UQ17U television is not convincing enough for the price

 

While the Sharp LC-UQ17U series offers decent picture quality its pseudo-4K features simply aren't worth paying extra for.

The Sharp LC-UQ17U offers decent picture quality with relatively deep blacks and excellent shadow detail; having a native 4K input might be useful in the future.

Too expensive given it's not a true 4K TV; the Revelation upscaling engine adds artifacts in dark scenes and can actually obscure fine 1080p detail; discernible pixel structure prevents sitting close enough to perceive 4K-like detail; THX mode could be...

Sharp LC 60UQ17U

 

If you don't want to spend ridiculous amounts of money on a 4K TV, then Sharp has come up with a stop-gap solution: a 1080p that supposedly acts like a 4K set.

Sharp LC-60UQ17U 3D LCD HDTV

 

It can't deliver the deep blacks found on today's best flat panels, but the Sharp LC-60UQ17U offers top-notch detail and color, along with the ability to display 4K source material with excellent, though not full 4K, resolution.

Crisp detail; Excellent color; Bright, vivid 3D

Middling contrast and black level; 3D ghosting

Total Loss After 4 Years!

 

I purchased a Sharp 52" Aquos LCD TV 4 years ago for $1500. It now has wide vertical stripes running down the middle of the screen making it unusable. It's the result of a fried board and the repair estimate is more than the price of a new TV.

Nothing

Excellent Picture and Good Sound

 

Be aware that this is a 100 lb TV. You will definitely need 2-3 people to get it out of the box and set it up. We did the setup with three people just to be on the safe side. The default picture setting definitely needs to be changed when you set it...

I've been using this TV for over a year. I looked at all the major 1080p TVs at the time. I found this to have the best image colors, 3D video, and the best bang for the buck. The picture is nice and bright with dynamic and vibrant colors. The refresh...

There is no detachable power cord. This is a con for a few reasons. First, it makes it easier to manage the cables or run it through the wall when it's not attached to the TV. Second, you can't use a higher-grade audio cable which would have further...

Sharp Aquos Q+ LC70UQ17U

 

Overall the TV is great, make sure you have a strong stand this thing is 100 pounds. I had a hard time finding a entertainment center to accommodate it, I ended up building one myself. Saved me a few hundred bucks. Remember this TV is a computer be...

This TV is a beast. Had no problems with shipping, but be sure to open the TV once it arrives with the delivery guy right there just in case damage occurred in the shipping. Very easy to unpack, be sure to have help 2-3 people. Cut the bindings around...

It's missing a few app I like to shop on, and also provide a movie service like netflixs. Would be nice to have that.
