Sharp Elite PRO-60X5FD Review Archive$5,999.00
The Elite PRO-X5FD is dark and we haven't even discussed contrast yet. The bezels are a deep matte black, the stand is a smooth and reflective black, and the strip of plastic between the bezel and stand is technically translucent, but it appears black by virtue of being sandwiched between these two. Notice a common theme with the design of this TV?
Dark color scheme aside, the Elite PRO-X5FD is a handsome television. Sony markets their Bravia line as having a "monolithic design," but Sharp one-ups them in that department. With its thin profile, pronounced corners, and yes, total blackness, the Elite is truly monolithic.
