TVs have come a long way from their bulky, boxy ancestors that easily weighed over 50 pounds, leaving owners with no choice but to place them on hefty entertainment stands for support. Nowadays, Sharp TVs are some of the slimmest and sleekest flat-screen TVs on the market. But, despite their minimal width, it’s still important to know how much these TVs weigh so they can be safely moved and properly mounted.
The weight of a Sharp TV heavily relies on the TV’s overall size. Below is a chart of the most popular Smart TV sizes and their respective weights.

In this article, we’ll cover relevant topics relating to a Sharp TV’s weight, such as how they compare to other brands regarding weight, what affects their overall weight, and why television weight is an important factor to consider before purchase.
Are Sharp TVs Considered Heavy?
After huffing around those cumbersome CRT TVs for nearly a century, most of us are pleasantly relieved that flat-screen televisions, like those sold by Sharp, are cheaper and more accessible than ever. Still, the last thing we want is to trade those hefty, old televisions for a hefty flat-screen, which leads consumers to wonder how Sharp TVs compare to other brands in terms of weight.
Sharp TVs of every size are considered average to slightly heavier in terms of their overall weight, both with and without a stand, compared to other popular brands like Samsung, LG, and Sony.
On average, a flat-screen TV weighs between 25 and 75 pounds, a range that all Sharp TVs of popular sizes fall into, as demonstrated by the table provided above.
However, if you were to compare a Sharp TV to other flat-screen TV brands of equal size, you’ll find that Sharp’s TVs often lay on the heavier side of the scale. Below is a table compiled of various TV brands and what some of their 55″ TVs weigh compared to Sharp TV:
|55″ Sharp TV||47.8 pounds|
|55″ Samsung LED TV||39 pounds with stand|
|55” TCL LED TV (model 55S405)||30 pounds with stand|
|55” Toshiba TF-55A810U21 (LED)||33.1 pounds|
|55″ Sony XBR55X900F (LED)||42.1 pounds|
Of course, while this chart might make Sharp’s TVs seem like behemoths weight-wise, considering the listed weight is a decent 10 to 15 pounds heavier than its competitors, this is not always the case. The model plays a significant role in the weight department. For example, Sony’s 55″ KDL-55NX810 (LED) television weighs 71 pounds, whereas its 55″ KDL-55W905A (LCD) television weighs 48.5 pounds. Instances like this where there are inconsistencies with the weight between models are why Smart TVs typically lie in the average range for overall weight.
What Affects the Weight of TVs?
You might be wondering how two televisions made by the same brand that measures the same size can have a weight difference of 5-10+ pounds. The answer lies in the TV’s design and the materials used.
One of the most significant deciding factors of a television’s weight is whether it is made with LED or LCD technology. While both designs provide superb, high-definition images, LCD technology relies on cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs) for lighting compared to the light-emitting diodes in LED.
This difference contributes to LCD television being heavier than those designed with LED technology. Granted, most modern TVs are strictly made with LED technology, making a true LCD TV hard to come by. But, if you’re purchasing an older model, you might still find the LCD title stamped on it, which will likely mean the model is heavier than others.
Of course, other common contributors are the model’s overall size and the materials used. Some television brands have their own trade-marked materials used to create their unique televisions that might render their products lighter or heavier than others.
Why Is It Important to Consider Your Sharp TV’s Weight?
By this point, you might be wondering why we’re putting so much emphasis on your future Sharp TV’s weight. Well, there are several crucial reasons why you should consider this before you even purchase your shiny new Sharp TV.
The three overarching reasons why you’ll want to consider your Sharp TV’s weight before you buy one are:
- Installation location
The first one is pretty simple. The larger your Sharp TV is in size, the heavier it will be, and the more it will cost. So, if you’re TV hunting on a limited budget, odds are you’re going to want to settle for one of the smaller options with a screen size 50″ or smaller.
Transportation and relocation are another relatively obvious factor to consider, as you or someone else is going to have to be able to pick up and move this TV after it’s been purchased.
If you aren’t in your physical prime, but you’re unwilling to hire a service or get a friend or family member to help you move your Smart TV, then you’re going to have to order one that’s in a manageable size. TVs with screen sizes of 75″ and above could easily weigh over 70 pounds and might even require two people to move and install.
That brings us to the final point of installation location! This is arguably the most important factor you need to consider before purchasing your Sharp TV. Weight is going to determine what equipment you need to mount your flat-screen on the wall where it will hang safely without risking the wall’s integrity. Without the proper materials, you could find your new Sharp TV crashing to the ground in minutes.
You not only need to consider the wall mount and the TV’s weight, but the wall’s material makeup as well, to ensure it is capable of bearing the TV’s full weight. Of course, you could always forego wall mounting and opt for a TV stand instead, but, again, the stand or any shelf you place it on will need to be stable enough to bear the weight.
Finding the specific weight of a certain brand’s TVs can be tricky, especially since factors like size, design, materials, and more can easily add a pound or two. Overall, Sharp TVs are relatively average in terms of weight ranging from 20 to 70 pounds, but the only definitive way to know how much a Sharp TV weighs is to choose one specific model and check its provided specifications.
