Sharp LC-45D40U

 

Review: Quick take: The Sharp LC-D40U series consists of four flat-panel LCD TVs: the 26-inch LC-26D40U, the 32-inch LC-32D40U, the 37-inch LC-37D40U and the 45-inch LC-45D40U. All four sets have a native resolution of 1,366x768, which means they...

Sharp LC-32D40U

 

Excellent color quality. Two HDMI inputs. Backlit remote.

Slow film-cadence detection. No DVI/VGA video input for use with a PC. No electronic programming guide (EPG).

The LC-32D40U isn't the least expensive 32-inch LCD HDTV out there, but its superior image quality makes it worth every penny.

Sharp LC-37D40U

 

Sharp's remote is the same as ever, with full orange backlighting, the ability to command four other pieces of gear, nicely spread-out and well-differentiated keys, and a generally logical button layout. We say generally because the key controlling...

Able to reproduce relatively deep blacks; numerous picture adjustments; two HDMI and two component-video inputs; attractive all-black styling.

Color decoding pushes red and de-emphasizes green; no PC input or picture-in-picture; can't change aspect ratio modes with HD sources.

The Sharp LC-37D40U delivers some of the deepest blacks and very good overall image quality for an LCD, making it worth the extra dough for home-theater fans.

At A Glance: Sharp's 37" AQUOS is balanced from top to bottom, offering a set of features that leaves little to be desired and well-rounded performance to match. The image detail was tack-Sharp, the blacks were the best we've ever seen from an LCD flat...

Sharp, arguably the leader in the LCD television industry, recently began offering what may well be one of the most attractive LCD sets around—and we're not just talking about its looks.

Sharp LC-37D40U LCD HDTV Television

 

The flat form factor may be in, but flat panels are not necessarily superior in all respects. CRTs still do some things better than any current digital display technology. But CRTs aren't as sharp or bright as flat panels, and they're big and heavy....

Sharp LC-37D40U LCD HDTV Television

 

There's a revolution happening in high-definition televisions. Plasma and LCD flat panel displays are on the verge of dominating the market. CRTs still sell in higher numbers, but primarily in smaller and cheaper models. Once you get much over $1000...

Excellent color when adjusted, with natural foliage and flesh tones

Black level and shadow detail, as in other LCD displays we've tested, remain inferior to the best from other technologies
