Sharp Aquos LC-45GD5U


I had purchased this as on open box at COmpusa for $2100 OTD, and enjoying it every minute.

Awesome pix! 1920-1080. I'm watching it with my LG HDMI upconvert DVD player and only getting 720P, and even at that resolution, the pix is so beautiful.

Incredible TV


I bought it on line out of a New York internet site (US1Camera) at a very steep discount to retail.

Piano Black Color, picture quality, size (just right) weight (can be lifted by one big person), 1080P potential

Speakers, unlighted remote control, price

Sharp AQUOS LC-45GD5U 45" LCD TV


I needed a HDTV for my children to play their proudly newly aquired XBOX 360.

Excellent resolution. Good colour. Good screen size. Simple connection to the screen from the control box.

Need to have a high definition tuner as well as the control box that comes with the set. Only one HDTV input. So for more than one high res input may need a splitter.

I love the sharp tv


I couldn't decide between the Sony Bravia 40" or this 45" inch Sharp so I bought them both.

great picture,great color, high resolution, screen size is ample, high quality audio, good hook ups. picture in picture, pc card slot & more

A little difficult to navigate. Have to switch between tuners to go into the digital and hd channels on the remote rather than one continuous cruise.
