|With the introduction of the LE835 Series 3DTV, Sharp once again reinforces its leadership in LCD and LED technology. Sharp's proprietary Quattron? System produces the brightest 3DTV images with reduced "crosstalk blurs" and Spacious 3D Sound to complete the 3D experience. Additionally, the proprietary AQUOS LED system comprised of the X-Gen LCD panel and UltraBrilliant LED, with a newly enhanced Active Contrast algorithm, enables an incredible dynamic contrast ratio of 8,000,000:1 for excellent picture quality.|
This fully featured series also incorporates the Sharp proprietary AquoMotion 240 feature, which virtually eliminates perceptible blur and motion artifacts in fast moving video. The LE835 Series includes IP Control for web based functionality, plus Netflix, VUDU™ and CinemaNow™ streaming video capability through the Connected TV Services feature. With built-in Wi-Fi, connecting to AQUOS Net is easier than ever. A built-in media player allows for playback of video, music, and photos via the USB port. All of this is backed by the industry’s leading online support system, AQUOS Advantage Live.
I was really researching TV's hard before I bought this, and I'm happy with my purchase! There are so MANY different TV's, all with different features, but this had everything I wanted for the right price! So far so good too! Had it for 6 months, and I do not have a complaint. My XBOX 360 looks incredible on this, so does TV, and so do Blu Ray movies. Sound is good, but I added a sound bar for live events, and this puppy smokes! There are lots of features I haven't even touched yet either!
This is a beautiful TV. It is also incredibly thin, which is great for the wall mounted installation. I purchased a pair of Sharp 3D glasses on ebay. I have the TV hooked up to a HTPC with a GT430 video card . I watched "Resident evil afterlife" 3D Blu-ray. It was breathtaking. I did not test the OTA HDTV tuner as I don't have an antenna hookup in the room where the TV is at the moment. I have not tried the DLNA feature either. Pros : The picture is very bright and just amazing. Much better than other manufacturers like Sony and Vizio. This is a really nice size for a large room When watching 1080p/60Hz sources, the picture is incredibly smooth. The 240 Hz refresh rate is absolutely amazing. I may have to watch this TV more even though the screen is only 1/4" of the size of my projection screen. The wifi really works well. I have it working with wireless N on the 5 GHz band connected to a Cisco E3000 router about 50ft away. I can stream movies/previews from Vudu at the maximum quality, over 9 Mbit/s sustained. This may seem little compared to the 300 Mbit/s theoretical of wireless N, but it is actually impressive that there are no dropouts. The price was excellent. It was the same as the 832 model at Costco which is not 3D. I see that it has now gone up by over $500 since I purchased it. It has a lot of inputs - 4 HDMI, 1 component, 1 VGA
Amazing picture quality5/6/2012
I got a great deal on this. That made it all the better since it has all of the latest features available. Get the Quattron, it's worth the extra few dollars. The most difficult thing to do is setting up the Home Network.
Wow, what a great TV3/26/2012
Enjoying every moment watching this magnificent set. The colors seem to pop out of the screen (even without the 3D - which I did not observe yet, since I need to get the glasses). Setup was extremely fast & easy.
I love it!3/11/2012
Sharp is really Sharp! Beautiful and economical!
I've had this unit a week now and I'm very impressed with it. The picture quality is amazing. I use it with an Oppo 93 3D Bluray player going through an Onkyo 970. Everything is HDMI 1.4 compliant and it all works very nicely together. The Sharp sees the Onkyo, but not the Oppo so far. Not really an issue. Likewise the limited web apps are not somethig that bother me. 3D playback was out of this world watching Avatar. I had seen 3D demos in stores and thought it was a bit contrived and not really immersive. I'd see some cartoon character pop out of the screen, or a big drop of water go by rafting the grand canyon.. but Avatar was full on, very real.. as far as it is "real" of course. Be prepared to mess about for a while dialing in the picture. Skin looked overly red out of the box. I also had to tone down yellow and magenta setting and reduce color saturation a few clicks in order to make things right (for me). It's been pointed out to me from my review of a previous Samsung 3D TV that the yellow pixel is a gimmick, and yes, it is, as the industry spec color to be divided into Red Green Blue..but I think Sharp actually did something clever. Since the number of pixels is limited to 1920 by 1080, the bigger a screen gets the bigger the pixels, or the wider the gap between them.. so by adding the 4th yellow pixel Sharp are filling the "holes" and adding resolution, as it were. It might boost total output too.. which is why I needed to dial it all down out of the box. Food for thought.
