    Top pick between three 24" tvs

    This was the overall pick between Insignia 22" 1080p and Insignia Fire TV" 24". Wasn't pleased with messy Amazon interface (ads, suggestion crap) & wouldn't turn off from Comcast remote without a confirmation on the TV remote. Could have better sound, may have been adjusted but thinner than the Sharp out of the box, and wasn't as loud overall. Never actually opened the 22" tv. We were replacing an 19" LCD that stood taller (and weighed twice as much as these), and the 24" fit just as well because of the thinner bezels. 1080p isn't supposed to be noticeable for tv on these sizes anyway, but would be nice to have, especially if you want to it to double as a computer monitor (bigger difference there). Also preferred to have a smart TV interface that is widely used (Amazon or Roku really) The Sharp sounded better out of the box, has a much cleaner interface, will turn off from the Comcast remote. One other reason selecting this tv, is the center mounted base. The tv is located at a kitchen counter corner, and is often rotated. So the "legs" on the others prevent full rotation, & usually requires moving other things out of the way. Cons: * Can't skip Roku setup. Sometimes you just want to turn the tv on & plug a cable box in or watch OTA tv, and not spend time setting up and account and all that donkey doo. * Short. Stand should be about 1" taller. Will have to find a short stand or possibly mount underneath a cabinet, bring me to maybe my biggest con, even though I may not use... * The mounting pattern is HUGE. I think it is 400x400mm. That is ginormous for this size tv. The backing plate will weight more than the tv. It severly limits what mounts you can get for it. 200x200 would have been great, but this is nuts. And this is more a complaint of Roku, but there is no reason one should not be able to program the bottom buttons to go to another app. How people that you sell to are always going to want the same 4 shortcuts? Obviously you can't change what they look like, but easy to change what app they link to.

    This is a Roku 1st - TV 2nd

    Our other smart TVs work like TVs have always worked, but with an option to use the smart TV features if you wanted. Turn this Sharp TV on, using the Roku remote, and you get the std. Roku home screen, with a few added icons to connect to the 3 HDMI ports, the coax cable input etc. It's not That bad IMHO, but took a few days to decide if it was enough of a nuisance to return it to the store. Watching the Roku apps or channels, we get a better picture on this Sharp Roku TV than we do using our 3 Rokus, but it also has a noticeable lag that those Rokus do not. Push whatever buttons on the remote, and it takes a while for something to happen. It also takes a while to connect to the cable box, and when switching channels on the cable box, going from a HD to a std channel, or the reverse, there's a few second delay with a black screen. Our other TVs can be set to stretch a std. picture to fit the HD screen automatically -- this Roku TV cannot. Some Roku TVs have additional settings [ESP] that you can access using the Roku Android app -- this Roku TV does not. I was concerned about the display being 720p rather than full HD [1080p]. Before buying this we bought a Insignia 22" 1080p TV, and you could tell the difference -- the 1080p Insignia definitely had a nicer picture -- but the Insignia TV broke within 4 days, & so did its replacement, so we went with this Sharp, having had good luck with their products in the past. It is heavier & bulkier than the Insignia, but I hesitate to say that's because of a better quality build -- the base is held on with 2 machine screws, & once one of them was 1/2 way in, it required a Lot of effort to get it screwed in all the way, suggesting to me that not all that much attention is placed on quality control. Being picky, I wish the power cord was just a bit longer -- had to use a 12" extension -- & that the sleep timer didn't jump from 30 minutes to 1 hour, but overall decided that this Sharp Roku TV was a keeper.

    Sharp little TV

    I bought this Sharp 24" LED to replace an ancient ViewSonic TV in my kitchen, which recently gave up the ghost after years of trusty service. I needed something that would fit under the kitchen cupboards, which are only a hair over 13" above the counter tops. This Sharp LC-24LB601U just fit under the cabinets, though only without the stand installed, but it has a fairly flat bottom and stands up by itself without a stand (and I anchored the top of the TV to the bottom of the cupboard for additional stability). I'm probably one of the few buyers who only is attaching this TV to an antenna instead of the internet, cable, or satellite. But the setup for over-the-air stations was relatively painless, and the tuner actually pulled in a few more stations than some of my other TVs (I use an antenna on the roof and boost the signal throughout the house to about six different televisions). About the only demerit I can think of is the remote is intended mostly for internet connectivity and has no numbers for direct digital tuning, so getting to another TV station means scrolling up or down through all the channels. One odd thing is there seems to be a bit of a lag in the TV signal being displayed, as this little Sharp seemed to be about a half a beat behind my Sony Bravia jumbotron in an adjacent room playing the same station. Overall, this seems to be a nice little TV -- especially at the sale price I paid.

    Nice, affordable Roku TV

    We've had the TV about a month and its been working great. The picture is crisp, bright, colors are vibrant and the built in Roku (I'm a fan of Roku's simple, intuitive operating system) works well. We are streaming the signal so as is the case with any wireless connection, strength of signal is critical. It is important that it rates at least "good" and preferably, "excellent". The key design feature that drew me to this TV over others is the pedestal base as it takes up a bit less room and works better on dresser tops or kitchen counters. Also, having Roku built in is a real plus as it eliminates the need to deal with 2 remotes . Of course I can't speak to the durability or longevity of the TV but we have other "cheap" TV's and Roku's that continue to work fine after several years (granted its infrequent use but still...) and my theory is that if they're good out of the box and work fine for a few weeks, there's no reason why they won't continue to work fine. My only "wish" is that it had and RF rather than an IR remote that needs to be aimed at the screen but that's a minor issue. Finally, for those who might be hesitant due to the fact that it's a 720p TV in this "4K world", I believe that you will be very pleased with the picture quality especially if you're streaming cable broadcasts as we do.

    Decent TV good price

    Not top of the line but picture quality for a 720p is good. I use this in the computer room next to the computer so viewing from about 3 feet away and it works great for that Picture clarity is good but color is sometimes a bit different especially with a darker scene so it doesn't appear to handle black as well as I would like. It is a Roku TV machine which isn't my favorite way to go but it was on sale and has a center stand which I needed (few TVs now have the center stand). I would prefer it to start up in TV mode but it comes up in Roku TV mode and I have to select cable TV. this means I have to turn on and select cable TV with the Sharp remote and then switch to the Comcast remote afterwards that is a pain so the bulk of the 2 star deduct is for this reason. I haven't hooked it into the internet so can't speak to how that works. I have tried using the USB port to view movies from a flash drive that works but only for mp4 only which is the rest of the 2 start deduct it should be able to handle at least avi, mkv and mp4. Using it to view graphic files in jpg format works well. Not disappointed with the choice it performs as I expected.

    TV for the RV

    This 24" Smart TV replaces a CRT TV and digital adapter in our RV. The smart TV will use less poer be useful when WiFi is available which is almost everywhere I go since my "phone" sends WiFi. The menu and navigation are simple to understand and give us all the features we need. The picture clarity is great for our little RV and the Apps are adequate for all those rainy days or other times when we are not outside. It was easy to mount and the sale price made it the right bargain incentive to replace that old TV. I should have purchased one for my home office so I would not have to take out out of the RV when I am home for a few months every year. The picture is when I was setting it up at home. It will be in the RV in a few days when its mounting bracket arrives. Easy mounting using the VESA system and an RV mount that will not come loose from the wall.

    2 things : The volume is terrible! I even have an external speaker on and I can still barely hear it. You can hear the computer sounds ok, like when you tap the volume control to test the volume level but as soon as you play a show or movie on any streaming service or just my own movie collection it decreases in quality A LOT. Last but not least, the TV stand itself. I have never seen such a terrible design for a TV stand. I currently have it supported by 2 books on either end because of you bump it, it's going down! Don't buy this if you have kids or pets because it will not end well. The picture quality is fine, pretty good actually but honestly that's the only good thing I can say about it. I haven't used the Roku services yet as I'm having connectivity issues (completely unrelated to the TV). I'm 90% sure I'm returning this tomorrow. Highly disappointing.

    Great TV for small spaces

    I bought this TV for the bedroom. I needed a TV with a pedestal base rather than side feet because of the location on a small dresser. The TV has a sharp picture and clear sound with enough volume for the bedroom. Setup took a while because you need to create a Roku account and enter a code they send you into the TV. I did this on my PC and was not quick enough the first time transferring the code, but it was easily repeated with success. We mostly watch cable TV and can do this entirely on the cable company's universal remote. We only need the Roku remote for smart TV functions such as Netflix. There are dozens of "channels" you can add to the smart TV and it was fun to search through them. We are very satisfied with the TV but wish we had space for something larger.

    Volume control doesn’t work

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The remote volume control doesn’t work. TV manufacture date 8/2018. Bought TV 11/2018. TV volume quit working 12/2018. We use the TV’s remote as well as a TiVo remote, and neither works. We have to reboot the TV multiple times daily in order to get the remotes to change the volume just one or two levels. Then after a few minutes, neither remote will change volume at all. Best Buy’s return policy is substandard. We tried to return the TV but BB would not take it back. Return policy time length is way too short. I will never buy from Best Buy again. Usually we buy from Amazon, this time we bought from BB and we are sorry. I will also never buy a Sharp product again.

    This TV was a valentines present for my baby for her sewing room. It's perfect. It picked up the wifi right away (it's mesh and some 2.4 devices have issues) There was an update to download then we logged onto Roku account (the main reason I got this one) Not one problem with the setup and operation. The reason for a 4 instead of a 5 is the stand, and the way it connects to the TV is not great. The stand does not go "deep" enough into the TV and is wobbly. It's probably ok if you never touch it, or have it where the cat can't get to it. But I worry that the cat can knock it right off the table it's on. This is not an issue with our similar sized computer monitors. This part needs some help.

    Took this set home and was able to set it up in the bedroom in under 15 minutes. Even after fine tuning & adjusting, the picture was not as vivid and colorful as my other smart TV;s at home. After 15 minutes the screen kept freezing and going to snow and static. After resetting this problem kept popping up every few minutes. I returned this unit the next day and exchanged it for the insignia Fire smart TV at the same price. The Insignia TV seems so much better- nice vivid picture, and no snow problem. Since Sharp TV's are not really made by Sharp- but by a Chinese company Hisense, I would not recommended this product.

    I got this TV for my kitchen and it's the perfect size (I used to have a 17 inch TV). The picture is beautiful and I love that all of my other options of TV watching (Netflix, Hulu Youtube) and a bunch of other channels are right at my finger tips. I have it sitting on the stand, the set-up was super easy. I gave it 4 stars because the TV doesn't go right to the cable when I turn it on. I have to go to the cable input and hit select for it to bring the cable to the full screen. That's annoying, I've never had to do that with a previous TV, I'll see if there is a way to fix it but doubt it. Other than that I love the TV and don't regret the purchase, you can't go wrong with a smart TV for this price.

    Bought this for our camp, in the bedroom. It is a very easy TV to set up. Wanted a Roku TV because of the large amount of apps, that other Smart TV Platforms don't have. The sound quality is good. TV tuner for local antenna is excellent, it picks up stations that my more expensive TV doesn't. The built in Roko feature is really nice. Saves an external device from being needed. The only feature that would be more useful would be to have a numeric keypad on the remote to go to a local TV station directly instead of going up and down, one channel at a time. Overall a great TV and I would recommend it to anyone needing a TV for a small space.

    Ive had this tv for about a month.I was looking for a great quality smaller tv for the kitchen! I needed something also with the capability to stream Spectrum without the box. Morgan suggested this one since it has Roku attached. Roku works great and fast on my WiFi network. This tv is awesome. The picture is so clear, that I almost feel like I'm right there in the tv with the people/ whatever is showing, lol. I can also stream/watch live my church app and other of my favorite on demand tv network apps. I also caught a price drop the next week, so I saved even more money after I bought it. Now, I have no excuse not to cook or clean on a reg basis. Lol.

    I bought this TV because I was looking for something small for my sons room, that would fit on a bedside night stand, this is perfect!! The TV isn't terribly heavy and picture quality and color look amazing. Also, this is my first time owning a Roku TV, so that was a major plus, we don't have to worry about getting a extra cable box . All the apps we have are perfect, HBO, NICK jr., SHOWTIME, HULU, etc I LOVE IT!!! The remote is so simply to use that my 5 year old can operate it no problem!! You can also download a Roku app to your Smart phone that has a virtual remote plus other controls. OMG! Best purchase ever!

    TV for kitchen

    I purchased this TV for our kitchen and am happy with the picture quality and design (needed a TV with pedestal stand). We have Comcast for cable TV and use the Xfinity Streaming App successfully. The remote, however, is below average. The buttons do not respond as they should and usually require 2-3 pushes to execute a command which is extremely annoying. The volume and mute buttons are badly placed and we accidentally hit them when we pick up the remote. We have found that it is better to download and use the Roku app on our iPhone instead. All in all we are happy with our purchase.

    I got this for my father who is switching most of his TV's to ROKU devices because of Spectrum's raising prices. This was going in a small area in the back of the house. Worked great right out of the box plus the fact it has a dedicated Remote for ROKU/TV options makes things that much easier for set up. The way we saw this buy was simple. Roku Device 30 bucks, TV another 75-125.00 $. This decision was easier. Also picture is amazing, quality is on par and it's a main name brand in "Sharp". So to everyone considering this it's worth every penny and even when it goes on sale buy 2 if you can. BEST BUY

    I only wanted a basic TV that would fit the lazy susan on my kitchen counter. I did not know what Roku was all about, and it was not explained to me. As a result, it was very difficult to combine this TV with my Comcast cable and remote, and I need to use two remotes to use it with Comcast. I don't understand the Sharp remote that has no numbers, but I only need to use the power and OK buttons, two steps to be able to use the Comcast remote. There was no real instruction book with the TV, only set-up instructions that weren't very clear.

    This is a great inexpensive all-in-one TV with Roku built in, that's small enough to use in a bedroom, office, etc where you probably don't need an extra large screen. Great picture quality and Roku is already built in. The only thing I don't like is that it 'goes to sleep' on it's own after a couple of hours of no interaction even though I set the sleep timer to off....probably some other setting I haven't figured out yet. Overall though, a good inexpensive TV for my bedroom.

    The roku remote is way over simplified for me. I prefer a full function with dedicated buttons along with the numbers as I do change channels for over the air stations. With this remote, it is super slow to go from channel 5 to 49 to 27. Also, setup was way more involved than it needs to be. The TV is not just plug and play. It makes you sign into a Roku account (which I didn't have) and that's loads of fun [sarcasm]. If you have no wifi, do NOT get this TV.
