    Roku...who knew!

    I got caught up in shopping black Friday sales when I bought this TV. However I am glad that I did. I am 60+ and typically a no-frills type when it came to watching tv. So this is new territory for me. My daughter and I set it up yesterday. Set up was easy and went quickly. For the pause live tv feature you will need a 16+ gb usb flash drive (which was not listed in the printed instructions). Also there is no familiar numeric remote which would allow you to change the channels by punching in the numbers. You must scroll through the channel list each time. I don't like having to do that. I do love the picture of the tv and the 55" size. Colors are vivid and sharp. I LOVE Roku on the tv. This is my first time using Roku and being able to view movies, tv shows, YouTube... without using my tablet or laptop to get the pictures on tv screen. Am looking forward to discovering more about using this tv. So for I am very pleased with my impulse buy.

    A good smart TV for the money

    First this is 1080p tv, I didn't care for a 4k one. I found this TV to have a very clear picture and the sound to be adequate. Roku is a great platform and you can install Roku application on your smart phone/tablet or laptop to control the TV. The provided remote though is a bit disappointing. It is basically a Roku remote, with few buttons, for example it is missing an input button , close caption and all numeric buttons. You can do without them (by selecting from the on screen menu) or if you have a stand alone programmable remote which what I use right now. One other thing is, there is no dedicated buttons on the TV screen for volume etc. It has only one button at the back used as the power button and to select input, and if it used for any other thing, I didn't figure it out yet. It has no RJ45 socket (wired LAN) but the wireless option is solid and I have no problem with it. I have the TV for about 2 months now and I would buy again. I just wanted to point out some aspects that might help you deciding.

    Picture Settings Anyone?

    $249.99 plus tax... That was good for 55 inches with built in Roku. The sound is good enough for me. The remote is kid like in my opinion. It's beyond basic, small, easy to misplace. I do not like how you have to use two remotes, 1 for the tv & 1 for the cable/satellite. If there is an inexpensive way around this, someone please share. Also, I have not tweaked the picture, which is decent, yet, if someone has perfected their picture on this tv beyond the factory settings, please post the settings, it would be greatly appreciated. May sound like I do not like the tv, not true. The tv is decent, not great, not terrible. I give it 4 stars on account of the size, built in Roku and price. There are several features missing, but not for $250! I also opted for the 5 year in home Geek Squad Protection Plan for an additional $50.00. What a deal! Other reviewers: Settings please?!?!

    I was a little skeptical about this at first due to the reviews on the smaller sizes of it. Took a gamble as it was on sale for a little over three hundred bucks and not disappointed at all. Bought this as I was cutting the cord with Comcast and wanted a decent Smart TV but didn't want to break the bank. Love the fact that Roku is built in and added several subscriptions services and very very impressed. Image quality is not great with lower definition on DVD quality images but any Blu-ray or hi-def images look great. As it's a 55 inch TV, be sure to be at least seven feet away for optimal viewing. Sound quality straight out of the TV is ok but not great but once connected to the home theater via a digital optical cable it works perfectly. The tiny Roku remote takes a little getting used to especially with the volume buttons on the side of it but it's not that bad and actually nice that it's not a huge remote anymore. Overall very great value for the price. Not disappointed.

    Excellent TV

    The TV is an excellent value for the money and performs Very nicely. My Blu-ray movies are Very crisp and clear with stunning definition! I read a lot of reviews on this before I purchased it and most complaints were the sound, but most newer TV's lack decent cabinet depth for that hi-fi sound and I already had a surround system so I would suggest something of a sound bar or system to accompany it. The "smart" features are also better than expected and since I had ROKU for my old TV, the remote is very user friendly. The only complaint I have is the volume location on the remote as I found myself hitting that or the mute by accident at first (thus 4 out of 5 stars). Still I highly recommend buying this TV as I feel it is the best value for your money.

    The Smart apps sometimes lack the resources to run a lot of applications for long lengths of time. I use Sling, Plex, Amazon and Netflix regularly and each typically have problems over time. NOT network issues, but reboot issues on the TV randomly, or locking up. Again, it is not all of the time, or even most of the time. Just random. All in all 4 stars. I would like to see a little more CPU/Memory to see launch time decrease on the apps as well. Caching "Favorites" into memory might help with threading and launch as well as releasing apps in memory for those that have been closed. Obvious shortcomings that hopefully will be addressed as they are on similar linux based platforms.

    Good picture when it finally turns on

    Bought on Black Friday at Best Buy. Easy set up. Good picture. Not able to connect to WiFi, Internet provider problem based on Error 014.12 per Sharp customer service. When pressing power on the remote to the TV or dish sometimes won't turn TV on. After unplugging the cord a couple of times, so far the TV screen has turnen on. The power button on the back of the TV has not turned on or off the TV. Will be contacting Sharp on problem.

    Can a 55 smart Roku tv be cheaper than pc monitor?

    Yes but with limitations. The flood of large flat screens since Black Friday has been overwhelming, and in a good way. Our set worked flawlessly on first use and we will expect to remain so for the remainder of the standard mfg warranty (1yr) and beyond. Persistent rumors the hit and miss quality of the Sharp brand has concerned us enough to make sure we got extended warranty on this TV. Picture is great for the price though its sound is rather muted (We use a soundbar since). Roku works great but we wonder once the remote stops working whether any other Roku or generic remotes can be used with this set as a substitute.

    The Sharp TV is a solid value, but it needs to be adjusted a bit to make the picture smoother. Turn down the SHARPNESS for starters and use the MOVIE mode. The included Roku is why I bought this set. It's terrific and offers an unbelievable selection of apps (including my fave, FANDOR). Two small grips. The stand on the TV set isn't high enough for a soundbar to be placed in front and the TV stand itself protrudes in front of the TV quite a bit. The remote is a bit odd, but I've gotten use to it. I liked this Sharp model so much, I bought the similar 43-inch for my bedroom.

    It was a pain to get it out of the box and a little bit heavier than I thought it would be. Setup was super easy and didn't take that long. The step-by-step instructions plus help on using the app was great. I hadn't heard of Route before buying this television, but it is pretty neat. The picture is great and the timer setting comes is handy. I have it in my master bedroom and I thought I would need a sound bar, but it's pretty loud on its own. It's been about 6 weeks with it so far and I hadn't had any issues. The customization that you can do is pretty cool, too.

    Great deal on Sharp "55

    Came in looking at a "50 Sharp on sale ad... Saw a "55 Samsung deal, NICE SIZE screen, but a little out of my price range.. Couldn't decide? Sales guy was very patient and helpful! Suggested the "55 Sharp that was no longer on the sales floor, at a better price I could afford! I was sold! Love everything about the Sharp "55 and the deal I got. Only issue, I need a sound bar. Audio comes out the back of the TV; bounces off the wall, requiring the volume to be turned up very high to hear. Still very happy with this picture quality and the Roku TV access!

    I went back and forth on this purchase, but ultimately I just couldn't pass on this TV because of the pricing. It was cheaper on Black Friday as it turns out, but still at about $350 for a 55" convenience TV for the family, I just figured I'd give it a try. The picture is not top notch, but very watchable and as long as the built-in Roku is updated with new streaming partners I can't imagine being dissatisfied. There are several features I haven't tried yet, but if my opinion changes I'll certainly improve or downgrade my review score.

    Our Sony Bravia 46" died on us after about 8 years of having it. I wanted a slightly bigger TV with Smart features and I didn't want to spend a fortune (like we did on the Sony 8 years ago). I heard good things about it, and the sale price was very attractive. We've had great experiences with it. Clear picture and having the built in Roku player is very convenient. It does freeze or slow down occasionally when using the SMART features (which is why I didn't give it a perfect score). Overall, a tremendous value for the price.

    I was looking for a larger tv for my bedroom. This Tv fit the bill. I have always trusted the Sharp brand. I have several Sharps Tv's throughout my home and never had issues with any. Better than average picture . I enjoy the easy access to the built in apps. Don't care too much for the remote. I wish I could program my direct tv remote. No on off button for Tv you need the remote to operate. Roku player is great and I love that you can add the app to your smart phone to have control functions

    This TV is a solid value. 55" for under $400. Picture is clear, Roku is fine(I've barely explored it outside of Netflix and Amazon). 2 slightly irritating issues: it takes over 5-10 seconds to turn on. Also it always forces you to choose HDMI etc when you turn it on? Why can't it remember what was on before? Sound is ok. We added a soundbar much better. If you have the $$ get a 4K tv in 55". 1080p is fine, but 4K is way sharper for this big a tv. Still this is fair value for what it is.

    Sharp Roku 55" on sale

    I'm a Samsung devotee for large screens; however I needed to purchase 3 flat screens for a vacation rental and did not want to spend thousands of dollars. The Sharp Roku has a decent picture, not as clear as a Samsung. Color is excellent. Sound is average as most flat screens. Roku is the default for all apps. I was very impressed with Roku application and speed of process. Set up is extremely easy with simple instructions. Sharp Roku was a steal at the sale price of $368.

    Great price and very nice tv for the money. However, even with the great price and tv... there was no remote which was only noted on my receipt when I got home. Most other open boxes had a sign on top of them. My responsibility and really didn't mind the missing remote with the EXCEPTION that I could NOT set up tv at all. Was stuck on choice of language screen without a way off of it. Tv itself has no buttons either. Purchased for Super Bowl and couldn't even use it.

    Bought this at Black Friday event. I would recommend tv with a warning. Positives: -price -picture -easy to set up and use Negatives: -sound using built in apps is poor -even cranked up to 100% its hard to hear using apps -if I use PS4 to run Netflix the volume is great! -hope sharp offers a download to fix problem. -can't afford quality soundbar, so will have to live with poor volume.

    The best part of the TV is the price for what you get. This TV look and seems to work the same as the Insignia brand 55 inch set but powers up saying Sharp. I'm guessing it is made in China for whoever wants to put their name on board. Roku works great, picture is good. The only thing I have noticed which is some what annoying is the volume needs to be much higher than other sets I have, almost to the ridiculous point but eventually you can hear the show.

    I purchased this TV set on Black Friday. For the price, it was an excellent deal. There were no reviews yet as item is new. So far I am happy with the puchase. Picture is beautiful with vivid colors. Sound is good, slightly tinny, but a sound system is an easy fix. Hook-up was very easy with the enclosed instructions. The Roku interface is easy to navigate. So I would definitely recommend to anyone needing a 1080p resolution 55" LED TV.
