Sharp Elite PRO-60X5FD Review Archive$5,999.00
Tour & Design
While the stand fits in with the overall design of the Elite PRO-X5FD, it is nothing more than a plastic rectangle. Does this diminish the good looks of this TV? Not really, since consumers shelling out $5,999 for a TV will most likely wall mount it, but it would have been nice to get a stand that matches the quality design of the TV.
The Elite's on-set controls are found on the left side and are identical to those found on other Sharp TVs, like the LC-80LE844U and the LC-60LE847U. There are buttons for volume and channel control, as well as buttons that will change the input, access the menu, and power the TV.
The Elite remote is fit for a king. This device has more weight to it than most remotes do, which makes it feel like something more powerful than an ordinary remote. Maybe Sharp designed it with a king's scepter in mind.
The layout is good. Buttons are well-sized and spread out sufficiently. All the standard buttons like volume control and channel control are present, with some 21st century inclusions like a 3D, apps, and even a dedicated Netflix button.
In the Box
The Sharp Elite PRO-X5FD comes with a remote, an owner's manual, two pairs of 3D glasses, and warranty information.
