    My first 'smart' TV

    Posted
    eagz

    I stood in line with the other bargain hunters and was lucky enough to score one on Black Friday. Obviously at that price no one should be complaining. My review is based on the TV itself and not the TV at a certain price. I've had the TV for a couple days now. My last set was a Sharp Aquos but has started to occasionally lose red in the picture and I got years out of the set. So I have had a good experience with Sharp in the past. I was a bit concerned after learning Hisense bought the Sharp name for TVs in the US back in 2015. Setup was straight forward and simple. I recommend having two people to get it out of the box, installing the legs (which are plastic but seem stable) and getting started. I spent a fair amount of time setting up Roku and the channels I wanted. Since this was my first smart TV, I didn't realize how much time it would take to setup. I've noticed that while streaming through Roku some movies / shows get 'stuck' loading. I don't know if this is an issue with my wireless setup, Roku, the channel or the TV. Out of the box, my color settings were pretty close to spot on. There's an option to setup color variances based on which HDMI port you are using which is nice. So my adjustments on my game console are not the same as my choices for my cable box or blu ray player which is a big plus in fine tuning the player / viewer experience. The picture is crisp and contrast levels are well defined. A couple minor adjustments in the color levels for my game console were needed to tone down the brightness. No big deal. Overall, it's a great picture. Sound is much better than I expected. Although many people will use a sound bar / surround sound, the built in speakers are loud and clear enough for me. The set comes with 3 HDMI ports which to me is the minimum - game console, cable box & blu ray player. More is always better and if you only have 2 that means something will be using the older RGB connection, which this TV doesn't even have a connection for. My one complaint, which is minor, is the Roku remote. I don't mind that it's small but the volume controls are on the right side near the top and I find they get in the way when using the remote so I inadvertently end up adjusting the volume when using the remote. Eventually, I may look into getting a different remote if it persists. Overall it has been a great set with a good picture and better than expected sound and I'm very happy. The big test will be how long it lasts.

    I was standing on line @ the best buy store during black friday with a couple of products that i was going to purchase at the register. I initially came to bestbuy because I was in the market for a new tv, specifically a 65" Samsung 4K tv for my basement but much to my disappointment, the tv's exceeded my budget. I've owned samsung products for years and so i wanted a newer, bigger samsung Tv. I refused to buy any other brand. Needless to say, i was only going to purchase my other black friday items that i had in hand until i noticed two (2) other customers in front of me purchase a 55" Sharp TV for only $270 (taxes included) Bucks!! I knew nothing about the quality of sharp tv's but i figured i couldnt lose with buying a large smart tv for $270. Lucky for me, i bought the last one! The bestbuy worker who helped me load the tv into my vehicle stated his family had the same sharp tv & they love it. I've had the product for a week or so and I am very happy with my purchase. I assumed that the roku tv would be supar in comparison to my other Samsung tv's but it has been absolutely fantastic. The tv intergrated seamlessly with my samsung sound bar, cable tv, & apple tv. The tv allows you to customize the home screen just to your preferences. If you are tech savvy, i also recommend downloading the roku remote app to control your tv & easily switch between video sources (i.e. Apple tv, cable box, roku). Though the exceptional black Friday price of $250.00 is no longer available, i would recommend buying this tv @ the regular price of $450-500 simply because its a great deal for a big sized tv that comes included with many amenities. To be honest, the roku sharp tv's picture quality does not compare to the other samsung tv's i currently have in my home, but it is a great great tv for the price if you are on a budget BUT want a large smart tv.

    just set up after buying-- so initial evaluation

    This was a black Friday purchase and based on the reviews of the 50 inch model and looking at the 50" one in the store display, I decided to try this out. It is mounted on a stand, and used in the bedroom. These are initial reactions. Packaging -- well packaged and protected Set up - plugged it in and turned it on. There is a 15 second delay before it shows the banner, and does a software update. From there on the set up was a breeze with Roku updates taking a while, and an initial intro video to provide an overview that could be handy for someone new to Roku Loaded 100 channels -- this took 5 or 10 minutes, and I will be deleting many of them PIcture is sharp and clear with more detail, contrast and clarity automatically than my 5 year old LG that cost 3x as much and has 120hz and 47" screen with the same resolution. The sound is a bit weak - it is clear but increasing the volume a lot has a modest effect on the loudness Netflix, Time Warner, Hulu and Amazon -- the main services I use, all work well. Will update the review once we have some hours on the TV, and run into some problems, as I expect we will

    Awesome TV from Sharp!!

    I saw the reviews of lower size models from Sharp and decided to buy this 55'' inch model. Had it for $249 in the 2016 doorbuster sale!!. The package is very solid and well protected to avoid damages during transport. The unit is little bit heavy (due to its size I believe). Once its out of the box and connected, the setup is very easy. The picture quality is crystal clear! (This TV is better than my previous Samsung smart TV series 6) The built in Roku is fast and easy to use. we can configure the custom picture settings for each HDMI ports. Though the TV is 60HZ, I didn't notice any difference during movie play / game play. The Sound quality is pretty decent and meet my needs. Overall this is a Steal deal for this price and the product quality!! PS: I saw a review comment being entered in Bestbuy site even before the TV got released to public. (I thought it could be a fake one and didn't trusted it)

    Great TV at an excellent price

    I got this TV during Black Friday so I got it for a great price. Setup was easy and since I already had a Roku account, I was already familiar with setting it up. Once I logged into my Roku account, all of my channels from my roku stick flowed through to the tv. The picture is very bright and sharp. The home screen that places all of my connected devices (antenna, Wii U, firestick, Blu-ray player) added an extra level of convenience I didn't know I needed. No more flipping through inputs to figure out which one is which. The only negative I found about this TV, much like some of the other reviews I read, was the sound quality. I found that the sound for the menu was always much louder than actually watching tv. I solved this by turning the volume completely off for the menu. However, the sound when watching tv is still relatively low and varies from show to show. I assume a sound bar may fix this issue but I haven't bought one yet. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my purchase and I am loving my new tv!

    Excellent Quality, Very Easy to Use

    We got this TV during a July 4th sale a couple months ago and are very pleased with it. My wife and I were buying our first TV together and wanted something big enough for sports and video games but not too expensive, and I would definitely say we made the right choice. The picture quality is great. For someone who doesn't think 4k TVs are must-haves, this picture quality is as excellent and clear as any other. The sound works great, it doesn't need a sound bar to be clear and loud enough. The remote is very nice and simple, and very easy to use. For someone who isn't super tech savvy, this would be an ideal TV as it comes with Hulu and Netflix built-in and it makes it incredibly easy to navigate to those channels and the rest of your devices. It allows for installing lots of other apps as well and works great. My only complaint is that the Twitch app for Roku is basically useless and most streams never load (this isn't a TV problem as much as it is a problem with Roku/Twitch as companies not requiring the app be up to usable standard). Overall, I would highly recommend this TV for anyone who didn't want to break the bank for an excellent TV

    I got this TV as a door buster Black Friday deal at Best Buy. My wife and I are big Roku fans, and are totally enjoying the TV's Roku ecosystem. The picture is sharp, and you can stream pictures, videos, and music media right from your phone to the TV without any extra setup or download. I also love how I can use my cell phone with the Roku remote to watch and access the TV. The sound is decent, but we also have a sound bar when need be, but the speakers are great for everyday TV usage. I thoroughly recommend this product, and would even have been happy with my purchase if this was at the full asking price. Five stars all around!

    Sharp 55

    This is an affordable tv for its specs and size but in my opinion surpasses the quality of most of the other brands. There is always a bias to what your screen preferences are, some are too saturated, some dont have a fast enough refresh rate/frequency, etc. I have been sad since Plasma essentially went goodbye and was happy to find an LED tv that I liked that didnt do that weird new pseudo-3d tech most makers seem to be doing. Great colors, great blacks. The built in ROKU is awesome. Super quick (Amazon Video is sort of slow to start but thats Amazons issue, not the ROKU). 4K isnt prevalent enough to justify that money and unless youre watching a much larger tv or really close, you cannot physically tell the difference. If you arent planning on spending well over a grand on a high end OLED (or similar tech) I suggest saving your money and getting a Sharp.

    Absolutely fantastic TV. Picked this up at Bestbuy and I am 100% satisfied with my purchase. The colors are not washed out and look really good. The smart TV interface (Roku) is fast and response, while the speakers are nothing to sneeze at. This is now definitely one of my recommended TVs whenever friends ask about purchasing a large TV. The only con I can think of for the TV is the width (it is a bit thicker than the new thin ones) and it is limited to 60 Hz refresh. However, it's more than enough for my needs.

    I am not well-versed in HD vs 4K and I went into the store to compare - only could really tell the differences when they were side-by-side. regular HD was plenty for me and no need to spend significantly more for a good name-brand 4K LED tv. I bought this to retire my 32" 1080p Vizio to the bedroom, and upgrade this in my living room, it works for me. Only complaint is the small Roku-style remote does not have numbers on it, so it becomes difficult to easily switch channels when watching local broadcast TV, but not dinging the review based on this because I chose to buy the TV anyway since I only watch limited regular channels. I will update this review in the future if there are issues. So far, 8 months old and it works just fine for me.

    Calibration settings

    Good Picture calibration settings are in the eye of the beholder and dependent upon lighting, viewing distance and other factors. My viewing environment for this excellent TV are low lighting at approximately 10 feet. I calibrated it using the THX tune-up app for the iPhone connected through the HDMI port. I got an excellent and vibrant picture with the following settings: Picture mode:normal Dynamic contrast off Backlight 90 Brightness 49 Contrast 52 Sharpness 25 Color 44 Tint (-22) Color temp normal Game mode off

    I know this isn't an outdoor tv but this is where I have it set up. Before spending $2000 or more on a similar size outdoor tv I gave this a try to make sure a 55 inch would be good for my space. 55 turned out to be the perfect size. I am very impressed by the picture, so much that as long as I get over 2 yrs from it outdoors I would replace it with a similar product instead of a much more expensive outdoor tv. I used to bring my 8 yr old Sony Bravia 46 inch LCD outside and it definitely had more glare(probably due to less brightness compared to LED). I have it set up under a large patio cover which provides shade.

    Picked this up because my previous Vizio TV of the same size broke on me. I don't have many 4K accessories, so staying with a 1080p model suited me just fine. Great quality and sound. The only nit-picky thing I have to point out is that the internal speeds of the TV software is pretty slow. When I try to pause, fast forward, or scan through Netflix, for example, it takes a while just to catch up to the buttons I push on the Roku remote. It's not much of an issue, because I typically use my Xbox One or Apple TV for streaming services anyway. Other than that, the TV works great.

    I was lucky enough to pick this up during the Black Friday sale, and I'm 98% happy with it. There was a small piece that looks like it was supposed to be on the bottom near the front, but there was no way it was going back in without causing damage - and it seems to be cosmetic only. Love the options and flexibility - one quirk I found was that one day it started choking on Plex (playing from a computer wired to the same network). The (dual band) wireless router is inches below the TV and it was only connecting at ~13Mbps (other devices connect around 300Mbps) - but switching from the 5GHz to 2.4Ghz wireless cleared that right up.

    After owning several Vizio's I made the mistake of buying another without even reading a review and was greatly disappointed so returned it immediately after setup (the setup was so painful). I purchased instead a 55" Sharp Roku TV and was handed back a refund for a bigger TV. Installation was so easy, connecting to the wifi, and standard set up of apps, 5-10 mins max. The picture is great and is so simple to navigate. Very impressed with the Sharp Roku TV, and great service from Bestbuy North Austin. I only wish I had bothered reading the reviews first.

    I have had the 43 inch version of this tv for about a year and a half. This TV is every bit as good as its 43 inch little brother. The roku feature is fantastic. I am aware that this is "only" 1080p 60hz however being as happy with the smaller set as i am when i saw this show up on a door buster for 250 dollars i absolutely could not pass it up. The 43 went to my bedroom the 32 from there to my kids room and then i spent time reading articles on setting up the tv for non in store settings and i and thrilled with it. Thank you sharp and best buy!

    Sharp - 55 Class (54.6 Diag.) - LED - 1080p - Smart - HDTV Roku TV - Black equipment. The picture is crystal clear - amazing! The Roku integration is terrific and so easy to set up and navigate -- you can go from cable to blue-ray to antenna with just the push of a button. The same with the apps - once you set up accounts with each one -- there are so many from which to choose. Since mine is brand-new, I cannot yet speak of it in how it holds up long-term. But, I can definitely trust that there will be GREAT!

    I was not in the market to buy a television. I actually went to Best Buy to buy a phone. I saw the television, the size was just right & the price was perfect. I walked out. I went to my car, called my brother and I told him all about the TV. My brother told me to walk back into Best Buy and buy the television, if I didn't I would regret it! He was right. I had no clue what a smart TV was and even though I'm still learning all of the many functions and features I am enjoying it every bit of it.

    I wasn't sure I was going to like the tv. I bought a Black Friday tv from Best Buy a few years ago and returned it the next day. This tv is great. At first I was hesitant because it was a Roku tv but now I'm so glad I bought it. A 55" for $249?!?! When I set it up I was looking for something to not like about it. I haven't noticed any motion blur or pixelation when watching tv. It has 3 hdmi inputs and it connects to my 5ghz wifi channel. Something my recently replaced 70" Vizio couldn't do.

    Bought the 58" Samsung on line because of the price. Really wanted this Sharp 55" instead. But online said it wasn't in stock at my local store. But when I went to pick up the Samsung they had 1 Sharp sitting on the shelf. So I checked out the 2 in store. To me the Sharp had a better picture and I also like the Roku better than the Samsung Hub. So did an in store return on the Samsung. Really like and would recommend this tv. No down falls found yet with this product love it.
