If you were to say to someone you were thinking of buying a new Smart TV, we bet most of them would assume you would be looking at an LG or Samsung model, as it’s obvious these two brands have the monopoly on the market. This is sad in a way because so many people bypass brands such as Sharp, which still has plenty to offer.
For those of you looking for a versatile television that comes wth Roku TV built-in, then might we suggest the Sharp 55-inch LC-55LB481U Smart HDTV. This instantly gives you access to more than 3,000 channels and over 300,000 movies and TV shows. Not only that, you can personalise the Smart side of things just how you like it, and also be able to control many of its features direct from your mobile device with the use of an app.
While the specs of this Sharp 55″ 1080P Smart LED Roku HDTV might not sound like anything special, the LC-55LB481U is still ideal for those that want this as a second TV, or even if they are not bothered about having 4K support because of the lack of supported content.
Let’s not forgot, that Blu-ray movies will still look crisp on its 55-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. it also has a maximum Contrast Ratio (Native) of 4000, has DTS TruSurround and also comes with 4HDMI ports.
What worries us are the lack of reviews, and seeing as though Best Buy looks to be the only store selling this model, we would have thought there would have at least been one Sharp LC-55LB481U review, but there aren’t any at all. This is not a bad thing, as it could be exclusive to Best Buy, and that not many people have bought one so far.
However, with a price of $249.99 on the cards, we suspect this models popularity will increase very soon.
