Sharp LC20D42U 20-inch LCD Flat Panel HDTV

 

I own a 60" Sony, and two 32" Sony LCD's. I wanted a small unit in our kitchen to allow us to watch HD Sports, News and programs in that space, where we spend a considerable amount of time, given the size of our family. In the Bay Area of California,...

We're using this TV in the bedroom, and are very happy with it. There are less expensive LCD TVs in this size, but after the Aquos LC20D42U arrived I didn't regret paying the premium. The horizontal and vertical viewing angles are excellent, with very...

Although this little TV is a bit costly it is well worth it! I purchased it for the bedroom and the clarity and color are great. This little set delivers perfectly for a smaller room. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Everything I wanted - I have two 20" and one 32" of the same TV. I imagine if you were a real TV freak you could find imperfections, but they all work great for me. Worked perfectly (all three) out of the box. There is a start up delay and channel...

This is the first (smaller) LCD set I've seen that has a good off-angle view when looking up (first of a new generation of smaller sets with upgraded LCD as found on bigger sets)! I once got burned by a Toshiba 23HLV87 (off-angle view when looking up...

There were few small screen LCD HD sets available at either Circuit City or Best Buy to view. It seems that they are only interested in selling the big screen sets. I bought a Samsung 24 inch that had just come out. After 10 days I returned it to the...

Purchased this for our kitchen, with lots of windows, based on the strength of several reviews of SHARP Aquos from various sources. We made the right choice. Gorgeous picture, brilliant colors. No loss of picture, even on bright, reflected sunlight....

I purchased the Sharp Aquos 20-inch LCD for my kitchen. The picture quality is excellent and the size for a small space is perfect. I shopped for several days and even returned another LCD that couldn't match the picture quality of the Aquos. There are...

Sharp LC20D42U 20-inch LCD Flat Panel HDTV

 

My wife and I both like the Sharp as far as picture goes it looks good but the sound to us is not what the 15'' Sharp is even though it has more watts than the smaller one. It just seems like it has more of a tinny sound if that makes any sense to you....
