Our take on the Sharp LC-60SQ15U

by Steve Kindig
Sharp

Why choose an LED-LCD TV?

Reason #1: Awesome picture quality. The LED backlights in these higher-end LCD TVs can give you better picture contrast and more lifelike colors than sets with typical fluorescent backlighting. Reason #2: They're more energy-efficient than plasma or regular LCD TVs, helping you lower your monthly electric bill and helping the environment.

The highest-resolution 1080p TV

Sharp LC-60SQ15U

Sharp's remarkable 60" LC-60SQ15U produces a gorgeous crystal-clear picture that's easy to love but a bit difficult to explain. See, the screen resolution is not exactly 1080p or 4K, but somewhere in between. It's the most affordable way we know of to enjoy a picture that's noticeably superior to full HD 1080p.

Sharp's Quattron+ technology uses smarter pixels to build a sharper picture

The LC-60SQ15U's exceptional picture detail and color are instantly obvious. Sharp has achieved it by making each and every pixel work smarter. Typical 1080p screens have around two million pixels, and each pixel has three subpixels — red, green, and blue — to reproduce the entire color palette. Sharp's Quattron™ technology adds a fourth color, a yellow subpixel that results in images with brighter yellows and richer golds. So that's already 33% more subpixels than a standard TV.

Sharp's Q+ technology

Sharp's proprietary Q+ screen technology displays more picture detail and color information than any other 1080p TV. With 10 million more subpixels to work with, picture sharpness and depth come close to 4K but at a much lower price.

But Sharp has a radical new wrinkle for 2014 called Quattron+ (Q+). It splits each subpixel in two and allows each pixel to intelligently "share" subpixels with adjacent pixels. This is possible because when creating an image, pixels often don't use all their subpixels at once. Q+ effectively gives the screen millions more subpixels to work with. The resulting picture is extraordinarily crisp and detailed. Not quite as sharp as the very best 4K TVs, but surprisingly close, and at a dramatically lower price.

The Revelation Upscaler — two steps to a cleaner, clearer picture

Sharp's Q+ models are the only HD TVs that can accept 4K video sources (up to 30 frames/second). Of course, there's still very little true 4K video available, so until the content catches up with the hardware, a TV's ability to upconvert non-4K material will be a top priority. Sharp's Revelation™ Upscaler takes a two-step approach to this critical task. First, a dual-core processor fine-tunes the original signal for optimal picture quality, removing as much digital noise and other artifacts as possible. Next, the upscaler analyzes and intelligently enhances the signal to create a near-4K image.

SmartCentral interface

Sharp's SmartCentral 3.0 Smart TV platform includes a guide that integrates cable, satellite, and streaming channels — no more switching TV inputs or apps to find the shows you want to watch. And nearly all functions can be controlled by a tablet or smartphone.

SmartCentral pulls all your entertainment together

The LC-60SQ15U's intuitive SmartCentral™ interface lets you quickly connect to your home's network for more entertainment choices. Stream movies and TV shows from Netflix®, indulge in video snacking at YouTube®, and keep the music flowing with Rhapsody® and Pandora® Internet radio. Aside from the popular pre-installed apps, you can download additional ones from Vudu Apps.

Streaming content is just one of the entertainment options you can access through SmartCentral. It includes a smart guide that integrates cable, satellite, and streaming channels. Now, virtually everything you do on the TV can be done from your tablet or smartphone. And with Miracast screen mirroring technology, anything on your smartphone, tablet or laptop can be viewed on this big, breathtaking screen without a wired connection.

Audio Features

ARC (Audio Return Channel) Function: The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to your A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, network connection, and USB port can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. HDMI and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.

Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 3 input.

SmartCentral 3.0 Mobile App: The SmartCenteral 3.0 Mobile App (from iTunes & Google Play {coming soon}) turns your Apple iPad (iOS 6.0+) or Android smartphone/tablet into a network remote control for the Sharp AQUOS LED-LCD TV. Now, virtually every function of the Smart TV can be done from this mobile app on your smartphone or tablet. You can use the app to search and discover new content without interrupting what you're watching, and launch it seamlessly on the TV. You'll also be able to change channels, volume, or inputs, and adjust picture settings. You can even share videos, pictures, and music from your mobile device to the TV screen.

Keyboard & Mouse Compatible: The Sharp AQUOS LED-LCD TV supports both USB- and Bluetooth-enabled keyboards & mouses.

RS-232C Port: The TV's RS-232C port can be used to communicate with compatible PCs and other home theater control devices.

Mounting Options

Pedestal Stand: The TV is shipped with a pedestal stand unattached; assembly is required using the supplied hardware. The table-top stand does not swivel. The television weighs 61.7 lbs with the stand.

Wall Mounting: The TV has four threaded inserts on the back for use with an optional wall-mount bracket. The spacing of the mounting holes is 400mm (h) x 400mm (v). The threaded inserts require 6mm machine screws (not supplied). The television weighs 55.1 lbs without the stand.

Note: When mounting the TV on the stand or a wall (with optional bracket) leave 4" of clearance on each side of the television and 4" above/below the television for adequate ventilation.

Attached AC Power Cord: The TV is fitted with an attached 6' AC power cord. The power cord features a straight AC plug that sits 1.6875" from the wall.

Sharp Big Screen LCD

Written By Mark T., Valrico, FL on Monday, June 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This particular model from Sharp claims it produces a picture close to 4K quality. I've seen 4K sets and it just isn't the case. I have a HD antenna connected to this set in a suburban area. The picture is crisp and well detailed when receiving 1080i or 720p content only. However, for the price I paid for what all this set can do, along with all the types of connections it offers it is a great all around deal.
Pros:
Who doesn't love a large picture. Very good picture when viewing HD content rated at 720p or greater. Movies look great as well and I don't even have Blue-ray.

Sharp Q+

Written By Don G., Chapel Hill, NC on Monday, June 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The picture is amazing. Watching NBA Finals recently, and World Cup Soccer this past weekend - and the pictures were incredible. I initially had to tweak the picture a lot at first to make sure the display would show 1080p - the TV kept defaulting to 720p for some reason. But that also may have been a Time Warner Cable issue as well.
Pros:
Easy setup right out of the box
Cons:
Nothing yet after 3 weeks.
