[Costco] Sharp 4K 65” TV 4T-C65CK5UD $499.99

This seems like an amazing price for a TV but I can’t find any reviews online. It’s hard to say if this is a steal or just a bargain. If anyone has purchased please share your experience.

I can’t see it on Costco.ca. Seen at the Ottawa (Kanata) location.

AFAIK in Canada Sharp brand name is still owned by Hisense. So this would be a rebadged Hisense. Maybe they are trying to bring the name back. I would say that quality / performance would be on par with Hisense model with similar specs.

Sharp is about as low end as you can get in tvs today

They are basically on par with RCA

Even if Sharp TVs are now produced by Hisense, my parents would prefer this Sharp TV any day over Hisense branded TVs, since our old Sharp TV survived for over a decade. Not the best reasoning but yea

Don't expect anywhere near the quality. In fact the product quality was so bad under Hisense they were sued for destroying the brand reputation.

I was just stating what my parents’ view of this product would be. However, I’m not interested in getting any other TV except an OLED, so that I can give them my X90J

My 3 year old sharp 55’ 4k is still going strong today.. not a single dead pixel..

Sharp panels were being made by Hisense for a while, but I believe it has since gone back to sharp..

My rca 1080p led tv lasted 10 years until I finally sold it a few years ago.. lol must have been from a good batch!

And this is why companies license TV brand names, to trick people into thinking that they are getting a TV of the same quality as they were in the past. People need to realize that they are trying to fool you by doing nothing more than slapping a name label on their TVs rather than putting their own name on them. It's just a sales tactic to sell TVs manufactured by them under the guise of being a well known and respected brand name.

Edit: Looks like Sharp took the license away from Hisense and starting making TVs again for North America which were available starting earlier this year.

In June 2017, Sharp sued its Chinese licensee Hisense for damaging the reputation of its brand, seeking an exit from its licensing agreement. Sharp accused the company of producing "shoddily manufactured" televisions under the Sharp name, including products they believed were in violation of U.S. safety standards for electromagnetic radiation, and the subject of deceptive advertising over their quality.

Tough choice.

I would prefer ONN to Sharp at this point, but there's not much sunlight between the two.

The ONN 65" was also $499.

Same with my 3 or 4 year old Sharp 55" 4k smart. I still remember $298 at Visions for doorcrasher, and could even price match that doorcrasher and get it even cheaper for $278 at Superstore in 2018 I think this was.

It's QLED, so better than a run of the mill Hisense?

Is 60hz native refresh rate still a deal breaker for TV purchases? Haven't purchased a TV in years but remember back then that you needed a min of 120hz refresh rate to watch fast-moving sports without noticable stutter/ghosting. FWIW we have a 120hz Sharp Aquos TV purchased from Costco like 10-12 years ago and it works just as good as it did when we bought it (knock on wood).

There is no content you're going to watch that is higher than 60hz


"120hz" modes on 60hz displays use motion interpolation which should never be used if you care about quality.

It is artificially adding transition frames to create a fake "smooth" image

I had a Hisense 65” 4K QLED from Costco and I liked it and got second one this BF sale. The picture quality is amazing. If this is manufactured by Hisense I would not hesitate to buy it at this price. They are world’s No. 2 and China’s No. 1 if you watch World Cup these days. If you worry about quality just get Costco 5 year extended warranty.

If Costco warranty was around 2000 years ago, it would be the 11th commandment.

What happens if you return a tv to costco outside of warranty period, they deny you?
