Sharp Aquos LC-52BD80U LCD HDTV First Impressions Review - Intro

 

The LC-52BD80U is a 52-inch LCD with a built-in Blu-ray player. Sharp debuted the combo television this year at CES, and is the natural upgrade to older dvd combo televisions. One thing we're very pleased with is Sharp's decision to put the player on...

The LC-52BD80U looks to be a nice combo device. The TV itself looks to be of a good quality, the Blu-ray player is positioned well for ease of access, and the ports seem easy enough to get to. There is a concern with such combination devices, however....

As difficult and unpredictable as the BD80U is with calibration, the same applies to the picture experience. At times the LC-46BD80U had ultra saturated looking blacks and great contrast

Sharp AQUOS LC-52BD80U LCD HDTV Reviewed

 

The model number of this 52-inch LCD from Sharp not only gives away the TV's size, but it also hints at the existence of the built-in Blu-ray player. The LC-52BD80U also has 120Hz technology and a fast response time to help make those Blu-ray images as...

The LC-52BD80U has a 1080p resolution, and both the HDMI and component video inputs accept 1080p sources ; The Fine Motion Enhanced 120Hz technology and 4ms response time help reduce motion blur, and Sharp has now added a motion interpolation feature...

The integrated Blu-ray player doesn't support BD-Live Web content, and there's no way to output high-resolution soundtracks to an external audio system ; The TV doesn't have a USB port or SD card slot that supports digital media playback, nor does it...

The LC-52BD80U is a solid 52-inch, 1080p LCD offering, with a nice complement of inputs and picture adjustments. The integrated Blu-ray player is a nice perk but does not have as many features as a standalone player (no BD-Live or high-resolution audio...

Sharp Aquos LC-46BD80U Review

 

Obviously the key innovative feature of the Sharp LC-46BD80U is the built in Blu Ray DVD player. We found the inbuilt Blu Ray player to perform solidly and though we're not fond of the remote layout, there is sufficient control over the Blu Ray player
