1080p, Active 3D, Smart Central, 60” Quattron  8/10


Aquos LC-60LE745U
When Sharp says, “Watch more TV” they arent talking about the amount of time you spend, but rather the size of the TV you are viewing. The LC60LE745U is another very large Sharp mid-range offering in the 60” size but it differs from the LC-60LE640U in many ways. Though it is the 4th model in Sharp’s 2012 lineup it has Sharp’s Quattron quad pixel technology, active 3D viewing, and the Smart Central suite. It is still a great value play for size but the picture quality is superior to the LE640U in both depth, color reproduction, and processing.

The 120Hz rate panel is also enhanced to 240Hz for fast motion which becomes more important on a large screen size like this one. While there are no 3D glasses included with the TV, the price is moderate for its size at between $1700 and $1900. There is also a giant 70” version – the Sharp LC-70LE745U.
