Having owned several different brands & sizes of LCD TV's over the last several years, I'd like to think I'm pretty 'well-qualified' to say: this TV absolutely rocks! I've previously owned a 30" Olevia, 37" Westinghouse, 52" Sony Bravia, and 65" Sharp. For a short time, I had both the 52" & 65" TV's side-by-side, and I thought (as good as the Sony was) the Sharp had superior color. ...And that was on a Sharp TV without Quattron.This 60" may be a 5" downward-step for me, but the quality of picture is enough to make me forget about all that. There is another trade-off I should mention: part of this fantastic picture I'm sure is at the expense of the additional glare that the front glass of this set presents. While I wish there was a way to 'have my cake and eat it', I certainly have no regrets.Quattron color is so amazing, that you'll find yourself even saying, "Oh, My!" spontaneously, just like Mr. Takei on all those commercials. It really does produce a depth of color (especially in yellow & green) that other displays are just clearly incapable of. Anyone who says otherwise...you should take their comments as suspect. Some tech-heads will try to say that yellow-pixel (Quattron's 4th pixel) is not NTSC/ATSC-accurate. Well, maybe so. But, what are you trying to see in your picture? --Do you want to match some artificial 'standard' that doesn't look like things in real life (even the movie theater)? --Or do you want your TV picture to look like things you see in real life with your naked eye? (If the latter, you need a Sharp Quattron!)Something I also appreciate with Sharp TV's, is that their "Standard" preset is generally not far off from a great calibration. I remember spending hours upon hours & day after day tweaking the settings on my Westinghouse & Sony sets until I was satisfied. With the Sharp, I turned-down the backlight a couple of stops, dropped the color temperature 1 stop, and that was pretty much it.The set produces excellent contrast & gray-scale, too. Black level is fantastic (especially for an LCD), and amazingly enough, things seem to get even more 'spot-on' when you engage 3D mode and don the goggles.Like most LCD's and current 3D display technology, you won't be entirely free of some ghosting here-and-there. I've had a good amount of time with a friend's 55" Sony to be able to say that I don't think the Sharp is noticeably better or worse in this regard. I believe that if you set your output device (PS3 or standalone BD player) to a screen size LESS than the actual size of the screen, ghosting tends to be less noticeable. (I think this would be a good hint for anyone with a 3D display.) Also, optimum 3D viewing-angle is fairly narrow (as well as the IR beam range), so don't expect to be watching 3D from the far edge of your room. Certainly, for all practical purposes, Sharp handles 3D like a pro. It hasn't faulted detecting any 3D content yet, and even works well with old pre-HDMI 1.4 PS3 games like Avatar & Invincible Tiger. And, the 2D-->3D conversion mode just astounds me. I don't know how it does it; because in a lot of ways (while not being very pronounced at the default setting) it's more effective & generally more-accurate than a studio conversion like Clash of the Titans. It's that good.Bottom line, something that is hard to determine on the web or from print reviews (because of the general absence thereof for Sharp 3D sets) is whether or not Sharp 3D is any good. It is great. Add to that Sharp's unique feature allowing you to put the glasses into 2D-mode (while others run in 3D-mode), and you've got a killer feature set that other manufacturers just don't have. Also, the Sharp glasses are well-designed (similar to Sony's), with only a small 'peripheral vision' cut-out in the sides (not the gaping-hole, distraction-magnets that are Panasonic's glasses). And, if you want a little bigger-sized frame, the universal XpanD glasses are indeed compatible with this set (although they seem to produce a slightly 'yellow' white-balance, unlike the Sharp's native glasses).Sound quality is not the best on this set; a bit on the tinny side no matter what you do (my 65" Sharp was pretty robust in this regard). However, we are talking about a 1.5" thin 60" panel that's screaming for 'home theater', so this should not be a factor in your purchase consideration.Lastly, I'd like to mention cosmetics. This set is absolutely beautiful. My best analogy is that it's like a super-sized iPhone: it is completely flush, frame-to-display. Although I have it on a wall-mount, the swivel base is also an elegant piece of matching glass/black glass. This is top-tier stuff. Moreover, I appreciate that they put the light-up "Sharp" name off to the bottom left-side of the screen, instead of smack-dab in the center like most sets. Although you could turn it off, I find the center angle-icon highly useful. When in 2D, it's white; when in 3D mode, it lights blue. Oh, and over to the right side bottom, the on-set buttons are also flush, touch-sensitive controls!Having owned a Sharp (and loved it), it gave me a lot of confidence to buy this 'blind' (not having been able to demo the 3D in the store, etc.). But, Sharp has not disappointed, and in hindsight I am very glad I didn't take other considerations just because I could 'touch & feel' them in a store. .[...]

I wasn't planning on buying a t.v. that day but when I walked pass the Sharp Aquos Quattron display, I was blown away - and the 40 in. model was on sale too! This is my first high def. t.v. and I am so impressed with the vivid picture - it is screamin' good!! I haven't had a chance to watch any 3D movies yet, but I'm sure it'll be awesome! Right on Sharp - you rock!

I went into Bestbuy to purchase the Sharp LC60LE632U. I had done a lot of research on this TV and found a large online community following this set. Alas Bestbuy was sold out, and Sharp is not making this model any longer. I decided to go with the Sharp LC60LE831U instead. I spoke with the Sharp reps in store, and they told me that the built in wi-fi enabled great features including Aquos Advantage Live. Number one this is not an internet browser, you get a few apps that most of us already have access to on our other devices. Advantage Live is supposed to have a Sharp rep calibrate your Tv remotely. I tried this after having the set for two days, and noticing the soap opera effect. They are not able to view your screen remotely so they have no way to calibrate the Tv effectively. They were able to turn off all the high end motion features which eliminated the soap opera effect, but nothing else. This Tv appears to be a Bestbuy exclusive so there is not a large community to work through the settings. After a lot of tinkering I was able to get the set looking pretty good, but not great. Keep in mind that this is an edge lit LED Tv. Not full array. It looks pretty good for what it is, but could look better.

Amanda Voyta says...

After researching large LCD/LED flat screen TVs I settled on this Sharp because it had the biggest screen at the best price I could find (comparable to many 54" models). And the picture quality (after some judicious tweaking) is superb. The factory settings were pretty far off, particularly the motion enhancement being set to "High," which produced irritatingly unnatural motion (I now have the ME set to "Off" and it's completely acceptable), and the brightness and contrast jacked way too high. After tweaking the picture settings, HD cable, DVDs, Blu-rays, and Netflix streaming look terrific, as good as I could ask for. Setup was simple and straightforward. My biggest complaint is that I have to turn the audio up to 50 (out of 60) to get strong, full sound. It's not that big a deal since I mostly watch DVDs on it, and I usually have the sound piped through my stereo when I do, but I was surprised at how weak the volume of the TV is by itself.In most areas the available controls are thorough almost to the point of overkill (especially for picture mode and quality settings). The only place I wish I had more control is with the aspect ratio selections; I was really expecting more options here, but they're adequate if not impressive. I also wish the remote had separate buttons to select each input device (as I had on my last television, much more elegant). On this model you always have to go to the "Input" menu to select your desired input device, creating a slightly clunky, less-than-seamless user experience when switching from one device to another.But overall, I'm very happy with the purchase, especially for the price, and would wholeheartedly recommend this TV to the casual user. Hardcore videophile/techie types might wish for more control/options in the areas I mentioned, but this is a relatively minor complaint given the unit's strong points. If you're main concerns are maximum screen real estate, vibrant, lifelike picture, and affordability, you should be very pleased with this television.

We love Sharp TV's ! we have a 40" set in the family room so we looked for a larger set for the living room and selected this 60" Quattron model. It was easy to set up and once we connected it with the HDMI cable (we have Time Warner do it since they used their HDMI cable, saving us $20.00) the picture was better than with the spaghetti cables we used on our old rear projection Hitatchi..although the installers connected them when they delivered the Sharp and the picture was wonderful then too. We bought this set to watch TV and DVD's and not to download music or movies from iTunes. We are thrilled with the picture. Viewing is much more enjoyable with the flat screen models. We were going to wait until the Hitachi broke down but what with football season and Best Buy's sale price we decided to just go ahead and buy a new set and are glad we did..Delivery, removal of the old set and installation were included in the price and the delivery/installation guy was so nice, telling me to make sure we got the HDMI cable as it delivered the best picture. We bought a new bluRay DVD player. TWO Best Buy employees told us we would have to either buy a Speaker Bar or a receiver that accepted HDMI cables and speakers in order to play the DVD's....well, that sounded sketchy to me so I called Sharp directly and was told that all I needed to do was buy any DVD player that accepted HDMI cables and plug it directly into one of the several HDMI inputs on the Sharp TV set and the sound would go through the speakers in the TV set. We may, in the future, get a better sound system but we have Pergo covered by a rug in front of the TV and the sound is FINE from the set.

I bought this Sharp 60" to replace my old Hitatchi 60" that had gone to a "better place". During the first hour of viewing, after the easy initial setup, I was pretty much salivating over the this TV's picture. However, after a very short period of time (30 min), I began noticing the severe and highly irritating motion blur when things moved at a rapid and even not-so-rapid pace (like Sports Center highlights.) The TV has Motion and Picture Noise Sensors, however having them on does little for the motion blur and does something else, that is highly unusual and hard to describe, to the picture, especially to people's faces. I read someone else's review about this picture abnormality and they called it the "Soap Opera Effect"- which describes it very well. "The Soap Opera Effect" which that person used to describe the abnormality of the picture quality when the motion sensors are turned on, resembles that of a B or C movie when the pictures looks like it went through your neigbors camcorder with terrible editing. Hard for my limited vocabulary to describe it otherwise, however if you want to experience it for yourself first hand, by all means, purchase this TV. I purchased the calibration service at BB for $200, because I've read that a professional calibration can pro-long your TV's shelf life, while reproducing pictures that mimic real life pallets. They will not calibrate your new TV until 100 hours has been viewed on your set (roughly 30 days), so if you don't like motion blur, avoid this TV , because calibrating does very little, if anything, for motion blur. This TV is going back to get something with a minimum refresh rate of 240 Hz.

Steven Evans says...

After some searching and reviews I decided to purchase this Sharp TV as I thought the price was right. Big disappointment! I had the TV for almost 30 days. It is impossible to set the screen where all TV channels can be watched and be enjoyed. Channels that come in at 480 are unwatchable. 720 are so-so and 1080 are ok. No wow or perfect picture, no matter what setting I use. I have played with the settings for days. For example any video coverage that you can see during the news cast, no matter what channel you watch it on, is a complete blur. Also, if there is a dark gray or blue background you can see little squares refreshing all the time, it quite annoying. The picture is not sharp at all and the colors are horrible.Contacted Sharp several times, got the run around for a while. First they told me I have to set the TV up with a Blue-Ray DVD player. I explained I don't owe one, I don't watch movies at home, I bought the TV to watch TV. They didn't care, so I just left it there. Next time I was told I have to send them pictures of the screen. Try to do that with a cheep camera. Good luck. Just now they would be willing to send someone out to look at it. Unfortunately, Best Buy's return policy is 30 days and if I take it back after 30 days, they will only do and exchange not a return. So I'm just returning the TV and going somewhere else for my next purchase.FYI Just in case you unaware, if you return your TV for an exchange, your 30 day return time does not start all over, as such, you might be out of luck if your second TV is a lemon also. So I'm not taking a risk at Best Buy one more time.I don't recommend the TV.I don't recommend Sharp.I don't recommend Best Buy.

I am going to tell you this, i have had many Flat screen LED T.V's and i have had about 4 in the past year. The reason i have had so many is because i like my viewing to be perfect. I have had 46inch, 47inch, 55inch, not 60inch LED t.v's. As for this one the 60Inch Sharp, this is the best 60inch LED t.v as far as picture goes and for the money. Even to compare it with the t.v's that cost double this i would recommend this one. This t.v is only 120htz picture but it seems to me as if it were 240. The HD channels and blu-ray look GREAT!. The only thing i have had a problem with is connecting the internet and getting it to work. Im sure i will get there after playing with it more. Please if you see this t.v on sale or even if you do not please pick it up. You wont be sorry. Like i said i am a T.V perfectionist and this will be the perfect 60inch t.v if that is the size you want. And again with the sound, you can not expect much since all of the LED t.v are so slim it is hard to put speakers in there that are great. Although i find them to be plenty good. The only reason i gave it 4 stars is because of the internet complication that im sure will be fixed after making a call. If i ever decided to get another T.v it would be the 70inch sharp. The picture really can not get better then this for 2011.

I, like so many others, worked hard at researching tv's when my Sony Wega passed on. Read tons of reviews and went to several stores to compare picture quality and size, but this tv outshone the rest! And amazingly the new 60 inch fit in the exact same space as my old 50 inch because the frame is so small. Too cool! I agonized over spending more for the larger size, but believe me size does matter. The difference is huge! And I also spent a little more for the Quatron but am very happy with it and feel Ithat I got the most for my money. Sears had the same price as Best Buy, but their warranty cost more and you had to pay $100 for delivery and $20 to carry away the old tv. No delivery charge or haul away charge from Best Buy. It's nice to be connected to the internet, and customer support was able to remotely change the settings to give me the optimum picture quality with just a phone call! I couldn't be happier!

Jaz Taala says...

I was prepared to buy a more expensive Sony, but a Sharp rep that was in the store sort of talked me into this one, which wasn't too difficult given the excellent price. However, after having this for only a short time, I found it to have one serious drawback -- the audio getting slightly out of sync with the video. This was more pronounced on external sources, but even showed up slightly when watching plain TV with only the TV itself. I tried to live with it for a few days, but found it to just be too annoying. Search around for this set and you'll find similar complaints. I thought maybe I could correct it with an A/V receiver with the audio delay feature, but it varies too much -- I would be having to constantly adjust the amount of delay.

Wendy Jackson says...

I have had 4 Sharp TVs and this one by far has the best picture. On HD channels the picture is outstanding while on SD channels I would consider the picture very good. There are many adjustments on the picture and it took a while to optimize the picture performance. Since I have a limited amount of space for this TV, I had to wait until Sharp reduced the border around the viewing area and lowered the start of the picture. Now this great TV will fit into a space of 35 inches high. Also this TV has greatly improved the off-axis viewing issues of the past. A great TV for the money as I was able to use Best Buy's "price match" guarantee 3 weeks after purchase and saved almost $100.

Johny Knife says...

I have a 9 month old tv and the picture broke. I have been waiting for 1 1/2 months to get the tv replaced. Sharp promised, but never came through. I'm still waiting and it will be 2 months by the time the tv gets fixed. Oh, and that's 2 months of my 12 month warranty. Their response was we're sorry and we can give you the 2 months. Are you kidding . . .after spending $2,000! No one returns calls. The swap out company they contract with to resolve said they are surprised by the high volume of sharp tvs they have to replace because of poor quality. Hmmmm . .. .that's bad when the company they pay is bad mouthing their quality and reliability. Sharp never returns calls either.
