Sharp LC-37D43U


Its candy-coated case only hides the off-flavor center until you hit the power button. Sharp's 37-incher failed to re interlace some HD sources correctly in

Virtual surround sound great for minimalist bedroom installations

We expect more for this kind of scratch. Spendy features like a low-glare screen are wasted when you have to boost brightness to get a decent picture

Sharp LC 46D43U


The Sharp LC-46D43U features a generous 46-inch LCD screen. The cabinet is mostly black with grey accents near the bottom. The speakers are kept under the screen keeping the cabinet thin enough to fit into smaller entertainment centers. The Sharp...

The Sharp LC-46D43U is a great value for those looking for a large TV without the 1080p price tag

Sharp LC-32D43U


Excellent value for the money

I have had this unit for over 1 year, with no real problems. We have Verizon FIOS and the picture quality is outstanding in HD. The SD channels are a bit fuzzy, but I understand that is common with HDTV's

Sometimes I have trouble with the sound being fuzzyy

Sharp LC-32D43U


Don't buy Sharp LCDs. Stick with Samsung or Panasonic. Seems Sharp's LCD products break down, conveniently for them, after the customer warranty expires so that it forces you to buy a replacement part or new TV in general. What a waste of my time and...

Picture is only good if you're watching a DVD or surfing digital channels

After my year warranty expired, the remote completely died even with new batteries. Customer Svc said they can't do anything and suggested I purchase a new remote costing over $50. RIP OFF!!!! Google search and this is a common problem

Perfect small-moderate sized HD TV for the change of broadcast services, has ATSC, QAM plus old cable channels 1-125. Picture bright, clean and at 720p native resolution. Have received non-encoded cable QAM channels. Have not connected to computer yet...

Consumer review by:

Outstanding picture and no more expensive then any other quality LCD TV


After several months looking at different models and brands, I was down to 2 different TVs. One was the Sony BRAVIA KDL-32M3000 and the Sharp LC-32D43U. When it came time to purchase the store was out of the Sony so the choice was easy. The price was...

Fast setup, bright picture, and easy to use menus that is adjustable for each input, lots of options for the closed captions

No menu button on the set itself, no picture in picture
