    Sharp TV's are great

    This is my 3rd 32 inch Sharp and my 6th Sharp TV plus more as gifts. This is the 720p version so it is used as a monitor. I can view everything clearly and this Sharp has 12 watt (ea) stereo speakers so the audio is far better than most. This is NOT a "smart" TV but it can be used with the correct Roku box unit & works great. Listening to music from internet sources is surprisingly good. Computers and the internet prefer 720p so the picture has ZERO wobble and keeps up great. Hookups are fast and easy with all the inputs & outputs clearly marked. I use very high quality Twisted Veins HDMI cables and use the optical hookup as needed. The audio is completely adjustable PLUS the equalizer is also adjustable. The remote control fits great and is not to small. The remote also works from over 20 feet away. I purchased this unit for only $99 & gave my almost new $99 32 inch (newest version) 720p Insignia away ~ (never again). The mentioned Insignia doesn't hold a candle to this Sharp. Yes you can run any DVD player through this Sharp. Yes you can hook up a quality sound bar directly to this TV (NOT blue-tooth unless you have have a blue-tooth transmitter/receiver combination unit). Yes you can build a small room home theater system with this Sharp with decent speakers and a decent 5.2 (minimum) receiver. All newer Sharp TVs (Quattron & newer) are extremely versatile. I know ~ there are 4 (soon to be 5) in this house...

    Great product for an office or similar

    I researched this product to use in my home office. This is NOT a home theater quality product. However, if does have far better speakers than others I reviewed. The picture is sharp and vivid. It is easily mobile with my Direct TV Gini as no external speakers were necessary for background news or sports in the office. The price at Best Buy was a value for the expense. Just do not purchase this and expect a high resolution living room or home theater. You will be disappointed as that is not what this product is. Purchase and put in the kitchen, office, bedroom and move to the patio in the summer for an afternoon football game and BBQ and I would recommend it. I rated 5 stars for the product as I rated based on the usage it was produced to achieve. Since this is a recent purchase I cannot comment on its longevity. Incidentally the stand is the worst thing and flimsy but otherwise given the outlay of cash it is value rated well.

    Very Nice Television

    In my opinion there is nothing bad that can be said about this TV.. I never wanted to go to a big screen TV, my old SD went out due to a cable company I won't name, destroyed it. Anyways, as I was saying before getting this TV I had purchased and returned 3 other models of TV's, it was either the picture, the colors, or the sound was terrible. I got tired of going to my kids old room to watch TV, so when I saw the Sharp I decided to give it a try, didn't want to do any set up the day I received it because I figured, here I go again and was already planning my trip to BestBuy for a refund. Nope...not this time. so so happy with this TV...Please believe me when I say It's perfect all the way around....and I don't write reviews...Perfect picture, perfect color, and perfect sound... easy set up also..

    Great TV For The Price

    I got this TV to enjoy the new HD box I got from my satellite TV provider. The old box was SD and the TV was a 27" tube type. WOW. What a picture! It rivals my 1080i Smart TV I have in the living room. Set up was a breeze. I was able to hook up an old VCR/DVD combo player using the component video connection to enjoy old VHS tapes. TV sound is just OK, but I have it going through a 2 channel receiver so it really isn't important. Only complaint are the legs. I prefer the stand that my Samsung Smart TV has, but again, it's not that big of a deal. Bottom line, I paid $99 for a TV that has a picture as good if not better than TV's costing 2-3 times as much. PS - I ordered online and picked up at the store. In and out in less than 5 minutes! That's faster than some burger joints!

    But it is a TV...

    I ordered this little screen for my bedroom, and it works well for the space. What I like least about the TV is that the volume difference between one decibel and another is significant, so I'm constantly having to adjust the volume. Volume 10 is too low, but 11 is too loud, esp. if the speaker or character on TV is excited. I watch a lot of documentaries, so the narrator's voice at volume 11 is perfect, but once an interviewee begins speaking, I have to fish for the remote to turn the TV down to volume 10. The color is vivid, and the setup was brief although not as much as it could've been if I had bought a Roku TV, like my last one. Getting the TV to acknowledge my ChromeStick took a little effort, but--once set up, it worked as expected. The Cyber Monday price was unbeatable, but I still wish I had shelved out the extra $30 for a RokuTV so that it would have more capabilities. Lesson learned!

    I've only had this TV for 2 weeks so far, but I am very impressed with the quality of this set. Not to mention how uber-easy to set this TV up was. Poof, it was done in that short of time. Turn it on, set up wifi, choose some stations and you're off and running. The best thing about this is it is Sony and I love it. The picture is the most crisp I have seen in this size of a television. The sound is great too. There is a bright red light on the set when it is turned off, but it doesn't keep me up. I have it in my bedroom. It's just the right size to see it form bed and from the desk. Can't go wrong here. I'll go back and get another one.

    Great monitor

    That's how I'm using it, as a computer monitor with the HDMI out on the computer to one of the HDMI inputs on the TV. Was thinking of getting a new larger monitor, & since this was part of the Holiday Deals, figured why not ? Wish I had done it sooner, makes a BIG difference from a 21" screen. And as a bonus has the TV functions included, so put on an antenna (Even though that's a secondary concern). Got a nice plasma in the living room so this Sharp stays as a monitor most of the time. As others have said, the only drawback (though can be dealt with a piece of electrical tape) is the bright red light underneath when turned off.

    I owned a Sharp Aquos in the past and loved it. I bought this TV to replace that and subsequently found out it was a Hitense TV. I could not shut off the TV speakers to connect to my sound bar and when I called them, they sent me an email telling me to go buy a Fat 32 USB and go to their web site download the update on my computer and then do the upgrade on the TV. I had steam coming out of my ears!! The color contrasts were not great and I sensed a slight visual distortion on the right side. On the bright side the Best Buy Service people were superb, understanding my issues returning the TV and recommending a TV with which I am totally satisfied!!

    Our 40 in Insignia broke accidently so we needed something in a pinch for now. We picked this up on sale for $99.00. It's not a good size for a living room, but I figure it's temporary and we'll get a larger one later. The sound was somewhat tinnnier than the other tv, but after hooking it up to the surround sound, it is now a non issue. Overall I'm happy with it and will move it to the "office" later and use it for there. We don't have cable so we use the Amazon Fire Stick and it works just fine for Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime.

    Picture is good. Sound is fine too. The remote is a little weak... The sound and channel buttons are the same size as everything else so it's hard to use in the dark. There's a bright red light on the bottom of the tv at the center of the screen - I assume it's got something to do with the remote control. It's too bright for the bedroom. I covered it with a piece of electrical tape. For the price, I'm happy with it. I'd spend more money next time to get a set without the light and with a better remote.

    I bought this a guest room TV and was purely basing my purchase decision on price. This was on sale for $89.99 and was $20 cheaper than anything else I could find. I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprise. Simply setup, very nice picture and really decent sound. Pros: Easy setup, great picture, very good sound for the size Cons: The finish out / build is a little flimsy (could be indicative of longevity) Mine didn't come with any type of video cables (not really an issue)

    This sharp tv ended up being the perfect size parade bedroom TV very crisp very clear the contrast is perfect very easy to use and most of all very very light in weight which does not put off hardly any heat which is a plus compared to the older flat screen TVs. My experience with Best Buy has been fine and it has also been fine with my experience with the product now that I have had time to use it I appreciate the review sent to me. And I hope that I have enough words to require the 50 minimum because that is the pain of it all.

    I bought this TV for my mother-in-law along with a wall mount and antenna for her bedroom, which has no cable TV jack. Mounting on the wall was pretty easy, and the TV works great. Picture quality is sharp (no pun intended), and the menus are intuitive and easy to navigate. With a well-placed antenna, the TV picked up over 50 local stations. And you really can't beat $100 for a 32" TV. Yes, it's only 720p, but for my mother-in-law's needs (live TV, not movies or sporting events), it does the job quite nicely.

    Completely satisfactory TV for under $100

    Wanted to replace an old tube TV with one that has a digital tuner. We didn’t want to spend a lot since the TV is in a room we seldom use. While this TV is lower end (720p, not a smart TV), it is more than sufficient for our needs, with great picture quality and good reception. The last point is important, because many digital TV’s require strong antenna signals to prevent the picture from pixilating and freezing. But this TV retains a picture at all times with a simple indoor antenna.

    The tv does it's job. Great picture. Good quality. Good sound. It's a basic unit that does what it should do. It would be nice if it had the buttons to turn on the TV without the remote. And control the volume. That is a must have for any TV but for the price this unit works. If the remote breaks this tv will bot be able to turn on or off. Just add power buttons onto all TVs. I dont like that you have to buy additional parts in order to mount this device. They don't even say what's needed to mount it.

    I simply don't need a smart TV and wanted a recognizable brand at the best price I could find. $99.99 + tax for a Sharp? Yeah, this is what one finds lesser brands for. The TV isn't a bare bones package either. 2 HDMI ports & composite inputs are plenty for my needs. Has an excellent picture and sound quality. Unboxing and setup was a breeze. Love the nice sized remote, buttons are a bit small, but the overall feel of the remote is solid. Overall an excellent TV at an excellent price.

    TV is clear and works as it should. It's a nice size as well. The only thing I would change is the always- on bright red light, magnified by a plastic covering, that shines right at you! It signifies that the TV is off, but seeing that we have this in our bedroom, it is not conducive to sleeping in our otherwise dark room. We have something in front of it to cover the light, which seems to work. It's not necessary for the light to be uncovered for the remote to operate.

    Audio Settings Grayed Out

    The audio out setting is grayed out an set only to variable. Also grayed out is the sap/stereo mode. So if you have a video file with stereo audio it could play but without sound. The manual that comes with the tv is very basic and no info online at all. I even called Sharp and they couldn’t help. If using an USB to play video files beware since this will affect you too. In some videos you will be able to see the image but no sound. I find stupid that they would restrict those important features from the audio menu.

    We bought this tv about three months ago. The tv only took about five minutes to put together. The quality is actually above what I expected for the price! We are very pleased with the size and stability of the tv as well. It is very slim and I was worried that my two year old would be able to knock it over but it won’t budge! With four boys in our house it definitely has taken some hard blows already and is still working like a charm! I don’t have anything negative to say about this product.
