What customers say

1. There are different settings for the type of use (for example  gaming, PC, movies, etc.). I had it set for an automatic detection which would change the setting while watching and this turned out to be annoying. However, once I found the Dynamic Fixed setting I was absolutely AMAZED at the level of quality…

2. Here’s some free advice that I wish I would have gotten before purchase: Turn off fine motion enhancement, digital noise reduction, active contrast and film mode and never use them. Those settings cause some lag in gaming and can make your picture quality worse for just about everything you watch.


Sharp AQUOS LC60E78UN LCD HDTV is   moderately thick ( not as slim as an LED TV would) and with a  depth of  4 inches  you should not have great deal of difficulty mounting  on the wall. The Active contrast technology implemented in Sharp AQUOS LC60E78UN LCD HDTV, automatically changes the contrast according to the available lighting in the room. The Active color technology implemented in Sharp LC60E78UN LCD HDTV, takes care of maintaining color to brightness ratio in an attempt to keep it constant under varying picture condition. Thus the user does not experience more color or more brightness and the saturation of the picture displayed is maintained the same.

There are four HDMI ports, two each component video and composite video ports and there are four audio ports. One port is available for providing PC input. Component video is when the display format is YCbCr or RGB analog component video. Composite Video is nothing but CVBS standard analog signal, where CVBS stands for Composite, Video, Blanking and Sync. The maximum resolution of the video that can be displayed is 1920 x 1080 pixels. This does not have an Ethernet port, hence connecting this television to the Internet and streaming the video from Internet is not possible and also since there is no wireless adopter inbuilt in Sharp AQUOS LC60E78UN LCD HDTV, thus setting up a small wireless network in your living room is also ruled out.

Sharp  LC60E78UN LCD HDTV can be used as a television alone and can be used as the monitor for the PC at the maximum. 390 watts of power is consumed in the normal working mode and 0.4 watts is consumed during the standby mode. There are two 10 Watts speakers inbuilt into the front side which provides good audio experience to the user. The disadvantages is that there are no connectivity option available for this television but the clarity, sharpness provided by this television is the one that really compensates for the disadvantages. Simply if you want a television for watching good clarity picture and to provide you good audio feel, this is the best television available in the market. Some users complain about sound as well.

The approximate cost of Sharp AQUOS LC60E78UN LCD HDTV is $1200 at Best buy at the time of writing.
