Sharp LC-60LE925UN 3D LED LCD HDTV Review

The LE925 Series is Sharp‘s first 3D-capable TV line, and it includes screen sizes of 52 and 60 inches. Like most of the current 3D-capable flat panels, the LC-60LE925UN requires active-shutter glasses and uses frame-sequential stereoscopic 3D technology, in which the TV alternately flashes a full-resolution left-eye and right-eye image. (Later this year, we’ll see 3D-capable flat panels that use passive glasses, but these displays can only show half the vertical resolution with 3D content.) The shutters in the glasses open and close in sync with the signal to direct the appropriate image to each eye. Sharp kindly includes two pairs of active-shutter glasses as part of the package price (a $300 value; additional pairs of the KOPTLA002WJQZ glasses cost $150 each), and the IR emitter that syncs the 3D glasses with the TV is built into the front panel. The LC-60LE925UN supports 2D-to-3D conversion. Also, in a feature unique to Sharp thus far, the glasses will convert 3D back to 2D; so, if other people in the house are watching 3D content and you’d rather not, you can switch back to 2D (but you have to keep the glasses on, obviously).

The LC-60LE925UN employs Sharp’s Quattron technology, which adds yellow to the standard red/green/blue color filter. The TV uses Sharp’s 10-bit X-Gen LCD panel and an edge LED lighting system. Sharp’s AquoMotion 240 technology is available to reduce motion blur, while various de-judder options can produce smoother movement with film sources. The AQUOS Net Web platform features Netflix and VUDU video-on-demand, as well as Web widgets and the AQUOS Advantage Live program that provides instant access to live customer support. You can connect to a home network via wired Ethernet or the supplied wireless LAN adapter, and the TV also supports IP control. The LC-60LE925UN has EnergyStar 4.0 certification and an MSRP of $3,499.99.
