240Hz with AquoMotion 960

The LX Series offers a further evolution in digital image processing performance thanks to Sharp’s AQUOS High-Picture-Quality Master Engine image processing chip for highly precise reproduction of fast-moving images. The new Preferred Image Sensor not only adjusts to the room viewing environment and the on-screen content; it also automatically adjusts image and sound quality to the viewers’ personal preferences. In addition, the new AQUOS Familink II makes it even more convenient to access the relevant functions of peripheral devices and thus easily control them while watching TV.

AquoMotion for fast action rendering

AquoMotion for fast action rendering

AquoMotion is Sharp’s version of Motion Rate and the other motion processing technologies all of the major brands use to artificially inflate the native refresh rates of their TV screens. In the case of Sharp, a bit of dishonesty still prevails and AquoMotion 240, despite its impressive sounding number, is only offering an actual native refresh rate of 60Hz. As for AquoMotion 480 and 980, what it offers is really a refresh rate of just 120Hz. This latter rate is only available in the premium UH30U Aquos 4K TV from Sharp and the 480 or 960 numbers add little in the way of real actual enhancement.

For those of you who are fans of sports and fast-paced 4K video entertainment, The UH30U is definitely the superior choice due to the 120Hz refresh rate and given the TV’s wonderful price of just under $2,000 even for the 70 inch model, the value offered is definitely worth considering.

AquoDimming

Sharp TV 2016 Reviews & Prices - Ultimate Buying Guide for Sharp 4k TVs

AquoDimming is the contrast enhancement technology sharp uses in its mid-range and premium 4K TVs. This feature is both disappointing and pleasing, and before you ask how this could be: On the one hand AquoDimming, as per Sharp’s own description, doesn’t actually provide real local dimming in which individual LEDs on a full-array, direct backlight or Edge-Lit backlight display deactivate for specific and deeper areas of dimness and the resulting high contrast. Instead, AquoMotion seems to work by using digital processing to enhance the contrast effect on the screen even with an absence of numerous specific dimming zones.

In the Sharp UH30U, the effect created by this technology does indeed work quite well since the premium TV offers a wider range of diming zones. However, in the UE30U, AquoDimming can sometimes fall a bit flat. The low-end UB30U doesn’t offer this feature. What we do like about Sharp TVs across the board is the quality of their contrast, so whether AquoDimming is responsible or not (it’s hard to tell), the company did something right behind the screen since even the cheapest models offer some remarkably good contrast.

SPECTROS Rich Color Display

Sharp’s SPECTROS technology is a sort of color enhancement feature that’s only found in the premium UH30U 4K TV and in our opinion it works well without offering the sorts of spectacular colors and realism you’ll find in premium Sony, Samsung and particularly, LG OLED 4K TVs. SPECTROS does not use quantum dot technology to enhance color but it does offer some very decent vibrancy and realism, particularly under Sharp’s “THX Mode”.

Display Characteristics

When price, specs and other features are all taken into account, Sharp’s TVs are actually winners in terms of their display quality. These TVs, even the premium UH30U, don’t offer nearly as fine a display quality as what we’ve seen in Samsung’s premium SUHD 4K TVs or Sony’s top-shelf Bravia models like the X940C, and they don’t at all compare to the sheer quality of LG’s OLED 4K TVs but on the whole, particularly for the price they sell at, The three main Sharp 4K TV series are superb choices. We’d actually go as far as to consider them superior to Vizio’s larger M-Series 4K TV models in many ways.

Contrast in the Sharp 4K TV models is good to great across the board (even in the low-cost UB30U) and color palettes looks quite decent. Furthermore, as we’ve already mentioned, the Revelation Upscaler does a fine job for all types of noticeably sharpening most sources of non-4K content, particularly Full HD video.

Finally, in terms of color, the Sharp TVs perform decently to well. The low-end UB30U offers up a more or less decent level of color gamut and the UH30U does fairly well thanks in part to SPECTROS technology. However, none of Sharp’s models can really compare to the quality offered in Samsung SUHD TVs or the better Sony Bravia models from the X850C upwards, with their Triluminos Display.

Connectivity

Connectivity in Sharp’s 4K UHD TVs is generally great. HDMI 2.0 is available via four different ports and USB connections are also plentiful. Furthermore, all of the 4K TVs by the company offer HEVC (H.265 compression) for 4K video sources like Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video among others. VP9 for YouTube 4K video content however isn’t included to our knowledge so 4K videos from YouTube won’t be available through a Sharp 4K TV itself.

As for web browsing, the mid-range and premium brands offer this option through their Android TV platform and it works almost as well as what we’ve seen in Sony’s Android TV system for their 2015 televisions.

Comparison with other Brands

On the whole, Sharp’s UB30U, UE30 and UH30U 4K TVs (along with select other sub-models like the UD27U) all compare very nicely to low-priced and mid-range 4K TVs from the other major brands. Even the best that Sharp has to offer isn’t on par with the kind of display and general home entertainment quality you’ll find in top-shelf Sony, Samsung and Panasonic LCD/LED TVs but then again, Sharp’s models sell for much lower prices and for those prices, they offer great value. The alternative brand which compares best to the Sharp 4K TV series would be Vizio’s M-Series and the two are quite closely matched in terms of display specs while the Sharp Aquos TVs offer superior smart TV performance.

Pricing Questions

The largest and priciest of the Sharp Aquos 4K TVs from 2015 is the 80 inch UH30U, which sells for an amazingly affordable $4,297.00 on Amazon.com. For an immense name brand 80 inch 4K UHD TV, this is a nearly unbeatable price. The next size down for this premium model is the 70 inch UH30U at an also very affordable $1,897.00.

As for the most affordable of the Sharp Aquos 4K TVs, the UB30U, the cheapest model offers a 43 inch display and costs just $539.99. A more reasonably large 55 inch model of the UB30U goes for just $915.99.

All the rest of Sharp’s Aquos TVs in the UB30, UE30 and UH30 Series sell for prices between the two above extremes.
