Sharp Aquos LC-60LE636E 60-inch HDTV

Sharp Aquos LC-60LE636E HDTV Price in the Philippines, Features, and Other Details: The LC-60LE636E from Sharp is a wide screen, 60-inch HD television. It comes with a bargain price that makes it attractive amongst many other large-sized televisions in the market. However, it does come with some inconsistencies. The device has only a £999 price tag and was announced at this year’s Consumer Eletronics Show (CES 2012).

The rather cheap price tag is not at all reflected in the design of the Sharp LC-60LE636E. It comes out very attractive for a TV its size, with a surprisingly narrow but solid black bezel. The back has quite a forward deep, but none too large and the unit weighs 33 kg. Overall, it is simple but aesthetically pleasing, considering that it only costs so much. It also has an impressive slimness, (but not too slim by today’s standards) as well as a high gloss black finish. The connections are not at all trimmed down.

The Sharp LC-60LE636E has most of the important jacks on the sides, which makes the screen ideal for hanging on the wall. These connections include four HDMIs, USB and LAN multimedia jacks, and even a Wi-Fi connector thanks to an included USB adaptor. The USB port is able to play photos, music, and videos including DivX HD files. There is also a built-in tuner for recording videos into a USB device, with the tuner itself capable of receiving High Definition and standard definition Freeview broadcasts. As for network options, the device can establish a DLNA connection with a capable personal computer, and there is also an online support for Aquos Net+ from Sharp. There are some handy services built-in into the TV like YouTube, Picasa, an open web browser, as well as the Box Office 365/Napster/HIT Entertainment subscription services.

The huge screen of the Sharp LC-60LE636E is illuminated by Edge LED lighting and contains a Full HD resolution display. The TV drives its pictures with a 10 0Hz system that is quite excellent and is able to counter motion blur. Since the screen is backlit, there are some evident lighting inconsistencies, which would have been solved by moving the lights onto the edges. However, the backlight can be adjusted depending on the image’s brightness so the user still has some control over this aspect of the TV. In addition, color management is quite excellent, with the device having adjustment modes for hue, saturation, as well as having a value for all six-color components. There is also a Gamma adjustment bar, a Film Mode, and a Fine Motion mode.

Energy consumption is excellent, with the Sharp LC-60LE636E gaining a good rating despite its gigantic size. The cheapness does seem evident in the fact that the TV is not 3D ready and doesn’t have Sharp’s famous Quattron technology, which enables an extra yellow subpixel to be added to the usual mixture of red, green, and blue pixels. Still, images on the screen look very attractive, with a compelling combination of bright, and rich colors. There is even a good black level response, while the whites look clean and not blotchy. Contrast range is good, and HD gives nice detailing. Moving objects have little blur and less resolution loss, and the judder is not excessive. Brightness and contrast settings do have to undergo some manipulation but the result will be attractive nonetheless.

The Sharp LC-60LE636E comes with a slender, glossy black remote control that has annoyingly tiny buttons. Aside from being small, the buttons are also crowded together and can be quite difficult to accurately use specially in darkened environments. The TV’s menu on the other hand are quite good looking and even cutting edge to some extent, but it is still not too graphically pleasing and could use a little more fixing.

In terms of sound quality, the internal system of the Sharp LC-60LE636E is surprisingly good, with an expansive dynamic range that delivers a clear sound and has an excellent reproduction.

Overall, the Sharp LC-60LE636E is a mixed bag of good and not so good. It seems like a bargain, but performance wise, it still comes out subpar compared to other devices.
