"Broke in 30 mins."0.5 starson by stinkpaw
Pros: None, unless you like the picture to constantly change color.
Cons: $7000 for a TV that didn't last 30 minutes!
Summary: 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 if this is a fair review as I hadn't tweaked any settings yet, but even if the settings weren't ideal the picture color shouldn't **change** in the middle of a game!
I threw in a Shrek Blu-ray and again the picture didn't wow me. It looked decent but dark. The screen on the TV is very reflective which is a negative that others have mentioned.
Switched to some high-def cable channels and had the same impression. Powered off the TV and read through the manual to learn about the different picture settings. Went to turn it back on and it wouldn't power up. The blue power light just kept blinking. Did a Google search and found out that means an internal circuit fault and the TV needs to be serviced. Total elapsed time: 30 minutes.
For the price I paid this TV should not only have knocked me on my keester but also done my taxes. It is unconscionable that a company has such poor QC that the best TV money can buy breaks in a half hour. That's like buying a Benz and having it break down driving home from the dealer.
Sorry Sharp, this TV is going right back.
