Review: Sharp AQUOS 60" 1080p 240Hz 3D LED Smart TV

Earlier this year, I reviewed the big brother to the 60-inch Sharp AQUOS LED Smart TV, the 70-inch iteration. Aside from the 10-inch size difference, the two TVs look, feel and act aesthetically the same, right down to the subtle nuances embedded in the Smart menu. In fact, I was so impressed with the functionality of the TV I reviewed that I bought it from Sharp to hang in my living room! So when Future Shop approached me to do a follow-up review of the 60-inch version, it seemed like a no-brainer — why not take a look at other features of the TV that may have been missed the first time around?  So that’s exactly what I am going to do. This review will focus on the internals that power the TV, explain what 4K upscaling is really all about, and of course, some cool features of the user interface.

As John Wayne once said, “Tomorrow hopes we have learned something from yesterday.” So relinquish the past and upgrade to something with “true grit!”  There are some amazing new TV products available right now.  Read on, friend.  Read on.
