Sharp Roku TV review: A good entry-level 4K UHD TV

A good entry-level 4k UHD TV in terms of picture, but with a superior user interface and remote.

Sharp’s Roku 55-inch class 4K UHD (model LC-55LBU591U) is one of the better entry-level TVs we’ve seen recently—although it’s actually manufactured by Hisense under a 5-year licensing deal the two companies signed in 2015. This TV delivers a great interface (powered by Roku), and a better-than-average image for $600 ($479.99 at Best Buy at the time of this review).

That said, it doesn’t look as nice as the last the Sharp TV we looked at—the Aquos N7000—which was actually manufactured by Sharp. The LC-55 employs blue-skewed LED backlighting, and the motion isn’t as smooth as we’d like. But we can say that about nearly everything else in this price range. The LC-55 is good smart TV for the money.

Design and features

The LC-55 renders images on a 54.6-inch (55-inch class), LED-backlit, 3840 x 2160 4K UHD LCD panel. The TV as a whole is modestly stylish, though with today’s super-thin bezels, appearance isn’t a huge issue with any TV—there’s simply not that much to see.
