So you save over the price of a "smart tv" which seems smart to me.
As the previous reviewer with his / her one star rating pointed out, no there is no manual with the tv. It just erks me to no end when somebody leaves a one star rating for a product because they couldn't work out how to use it.
Really, its a tv. It's simple. You don't need a manual.
It has all the inputs you would need , has a thin bezel, provides a great picture, can be wall mounted with a vesa 400x 400 mount.
It does not have 3d capability . It is not a "smart tv" . What it is is a "TV". I guess these days people need bells and whistles to intice them to purchase.
If you want a great performing 65 inch full hd TV at a great price then I would highly recommend this aquos TV.
The only reason it gets 4 stars and not 5 is because the down firing speakers do not sound clear with the tv on top my audio cabinet.
When I wall mount the tv I will let you know if this improves.
Note : as the only other reviewer to this point has updated their review
and said that the roku stick is not recommended I'd like to mention
that I had no problems personally with the install. I already have a roku stand alone
unit so am familiar with the set up process. In this case you insert the stick
in the port and enter the code on the tv screen on a website you access from
your home pc or tablet. This allows you to set up an account or log in.
Also the roku is controlled from the tv remote. So one less remote to deal with.
PROS: It has a terrific picture, is Roku ready (which makes it a better streaming TV than most smart TVs), and has all the calibration options/screen modes you will ever need. Its full array LED back-lighting is much better than the edge lighting used in other TVs in its class, too. Despite a terrible remote -- tiny keys, no universal capability for other devices, and a laughable favorite channel design -- the TV is a great buy on paper and when it works as it should, it's a pleasure to watch (I assume anyone getting an LED uses a sound bar or a sound system so let's forget about the audio).
CONS: The problem with this model is its lack of reliability, as many others have pointed out. I discounted this when I bought the TV, thinking that the price was right through Amazon and that the possibility of recurrent failure was slim. Statistics, I thought, were on my side.
Well, before it was 2 months old, my TV's MHL Roku port failed. After 2-3 weeks of waiting for a new motherboard, the replacement motherboard's HDCP failed as soon as the board was installed so with all the HDMI/MHL ports fried the TV could only display video through its component cables or basic cable/antenna set-up. This meant no Roku, no BluRay, no Digital cablebox. After scheduling 3 disruptive service appointments, my TV was eventually determined by Sharp's technical group to have a "no fix" issue.
Though I have finally reached an equitable agreement with Sharp on an acceptable replacement to be delivered within the next 3 weeks or so (making the time that I will have had this faulty TV actually longer than the amount of time it worked properly) owning this TV -- and the process of resolving issues with Sharp -- is an exercise in aggravation and frustration I wouldn't wish on anyone.
So, my advice to "anyone" who decides to buy this model would be to definitely get an extended warranty, don't be surprised by port failures and other design issues, pray a lot, and retain a therapist.
