I bought a Sharp 50" 2 years ago at No Frills for $400 and you could use your points. This isn't a hot deal.

The TV is perfect. No issues whatsoever.

Pretty sure sharp is a licensed out brand now. 10 years ago, they were probably making their own tvs. That is to say, sharp tvs today are not really "sharp" tvs anymore, so asking for comparison is kinda pointless.

"Sharp" TVs sold in Canada right now are actually made by Haier. Haier bought the rights to market TVs in North America from Sharp (who does still make TVs in other markets). I wouldn't buy one, Sharp has actually sued Haier over marketing poor quality TVs under their name. That being said, if this is your budget, Haier is one of the better budget brands for TVs but this isn't a particularly amazing price.

P.S. I'd say 10 years for a TV is acceptable but not outstanding.

I hope I never own the same TV for 10 years in this generation at this rate of technological improvement. Maybe last generation sure, but I have had 5 new TVs in the past 4 years just getting cheaper and larger 70 80 inch tvs

Cheap TVs are cheap for a reason.

Those prices are pretty much what you'd pay an off-brand unit anywhere else, no?

What I wouldn't give for ten years!

Literally bought four Sharp TVs in 2019 (for a bar, pity me). One of the TVs is already dead and the other three are starting to have problems.

And those shitbags at Best Buy won't honour the extended warranty either.

Short story, stay away from Sharp, Best Buy and opening bars right before pandemics.

Well, what you’re saying is right for TVs of like 20 years ago. Nowadays, TVs last about 7 years if you’re lucky, so 10 years is great. And yea, my Sharp Aquos is in its 11th year and hopefully it’ll last a bit longer. My Samsung that I bought in 2014 already started giving us issues last year and although we managed to get it repaired for cheap, I have to say that one hasn’t as well as our older TV

I still have a 32" Sharp tube TV which I bought in the early 80's working fine except the left speaker has no sound. Hisense bought Sharp's name for 10 or 20 years (can't remember, you can check wiki) so most Sharp TV nowadays are made by Hisense. Using one 50' Sharp that is made by Hisense. The remote no longer works after 1 year and I have to unplug power for it to reboot once in a while because the TV don't response to any command like turning on/off etc. Not going to buy any Chinese brand TV in the future for sure.

I have a 65" Sharp and about 6 months after the 1 year warranty expired some of the back lighting stopped working resulting in dark blotches. It is very noticeable during white screen viewing .

hairer? i think you mean hisence bought Sharp America's Assets and Brand for the license to sell in NA but it ran out last year. So you have potentially 2 sharps. Old stock or new sharp japan which re-aquired the rights now for the name to be sold in NA. So I wager its an old hisense sharp vs the reboot sharp japan thats back. I still have an old crt japan sharp...dam it was the best crt tv I have ever owned.

The 58” 4K TV’s at Loblaws banner stores (sale starts tomorrow) are a better deal if you have PCO points to redeem,
TV’s with 20x points at Shoppers today.

Cold deal.
