Sharp TV Reviews
In The Spotlight : LC-60P6070U Model
My Sharp 60 inch LED smart TV is amazing. (I have the LC-60P6070U model). The 2160-pixel screen gives me astounding picture clarity that matches the quality of some $5,000-plus smart TVs. You can’t beat it for the price. I can stream movies, download music videos when I’m working out, and even look at home movies and picture montages in high-definition.
Especially considering that it has so many smart functions, the Sharp’s price point of around $550 is almost laughable. It goes on sale pretty often too, so if you want a lot of bang for your buck, this TV is likely a good choice for you. I’m considering purchasing a second one for our upstairs game-room, and a third as a gift for a teenage nephew.
This television doesn’t support HULU, but it has 3 HDMI inputs and HDR10 (dynamic range formatting) so I can watch downloaded flicks from the Internet in precision. The plasma screen allows for a truly beautiful contrast of colors, too. I’ve noticed that deeper hues tend to disappear on some high-def TVs, but that’s not the case with this one.
Some people also complain about edge blurring or problems when viewing high-action or motion, but I haven’t had a single problem with that. The 4K resolution doesn’t leave much to be desired unless you are an absolute electronics snob, besides, I know you can calibrate the picture and sound with a little testing and alteration of the settings to achieve a much better picture/audio quality compared to just-out-of-the-box.
The restart function is a little over-zealous, as it will sometimes reboot in the middle of watching my favorite Amazon series, but there is probably a way to reset it so that the time-out isn’t so frequent. If you’re energy conscious, you’ll probably appreciate that function, though.
I’m also really happy with the USB import but I wouldn’t mind having a few. I can plug in my husband’s camera with it. He is one of the only people I know that still uses an “old-fashioned” digital camera that isn’t on his phone to take copious pictures of flowers, trees, and our kiddo. They are breathtaking to see on the big screen in such vivid color and exacting digital precision
While we are on the topic of children – it also has a built-in V-chip so you can make sure that your under-aged cohabitants only watch what you want them to.
As for sound quality, this Sharp model isn’t astounding, but you can’t expect that much from built-in TV speakers. An external sound system with Blue-tooth or a soundbar system with external sub-woofers would make this TV really phenomenal. It lacks sufficient bass, but most TV speakers do. If you want to kick it up a notch, I’d invest in as high-quality a multi-media sound system as you can afford, because you’ll use it for everything, from movie watching to just entertaining friends with the latest hot tracks from iTunes, Pandora, etc.
Overall, expect a high-quality picture that needs to be tweaked within the settings to get the best results, and consider an external speaker system to make this an affordable smart TV with expanded capabilities. Since you’re not throwing down thousands to get this system, you can invest a little extra elsewhere to make it an exponentially better viewing/listening experience.
