Sharp LC-55CUG8362KS 55-Inch Ultra HD 4K LED Smart TV : Fabulous


Not had tv for long but very disapointed that you can not program sky remote to work volume and on/off because this tv uses wireless or something instead of infra red so impossable to get sky remote to work tv bloody annoying wish i knew that before.

Happy with my purchaseexcellent customer service.

I hate to say it, but i’m pretty disappointed with this tv. Now admittedly i am not a huge tech-head, but to me that’s the point. A tv should be usable for the average viewer without any extensive background knowledge. What we have found is that at times the picture is strikingly crisp and clear, usually when the image onscreen is bright. However, in scenes of darkness, the picture gets worse and worse. Night time scenes are flat out painful to watch as the blackness is formed from large squares of varying degrees of darkness. The picture takes on a haze and is overall far worse than on our old tv. I’ve had several friends who are far more tech-savvy than i attempt to remedy this problem without success, and judging by other reviews i gather this is just something one has to deal with. For me that is not acceptable. I’d rather have a tv with a consistent picture than one that is sometimes breathtaking but at other times almost unwatchable.

Great quality picture and sound for the price. App store is german though, so many apps you’d expect are not available/supported ie amazon prime video.

  1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Constant Problems

    This review is from : Sharp LC-55CUG8362KS 55-Inch Ultra HD 4K LED Smart TV with Freeview HD, Silver

    The screen is alright, you get what you pay for. But the most annoying thing is the constant update fails, tv resets, and netflix freezes. Also, either the remote or tv is a bit wonky. Because it takes 10 – 15 sec for the tv to respond after pressing the power button, and it takes another minute for it to be fully functional. Does this all sound familiar?. Well, that’s because it’s exactly the same problems a few other guys apparently had. 5 years ago and most of them didn’t exist then :(.

    The good: the picture is at least sharp and clear, and the black is nice and deep. If that and a netflix button are all you want, knock yourself out. The bad: aside from black, the screen has a washed-out quality. The sound is tinny and has a narrow sound. It also can’t be turned up loud enough to be heard in the next room. How harmon/kardon allowed their name to be used (and how anybody else raved about the sound) is beyond me. The feet for placement on a stand are pretty much a full four feet apart, and have nearly no clearance. This means that you have to have a very wide tv stand if using one, and you will be unable to use it with a soundbar or soundbase underneath it. The remote is rf, and it has no ir receiver. Because of this, it is completely incompatible with any universal remotes save logitech harmony and similarly priced options.

    The hd screen is really good and tv looks nice, but you get what you pay for, constantly having to reset tv, cant get the update to run and netflix keeps freezing. (dont have this issue with netflix when using chromecast) tv remote is also not the best and would not buy this tv again, i would rather spend £150 and get a better one.
