i have two earlier Sharp LCD televisions with a seperate tuner control box,and the picture on them are much better than the newer model, and the newer one has less adjustments to customize your picture.

HD picture is awesome, great looking cabinet, thin

anolog picture is so so,picture seems alittle fuzzy even after manually adjusting the picture.... digital is good... in smart stretch mode, news update scrolling at the bottom appears distorted,try it

Great LCD


Well worth the money.

Price. Sharpness. Sleakness.

Missing some nuts for the stand. Had to go out be buy my own. Direct TV remote doesn't turn the LCD on/off.

Best value for premium LCD


I have been looking for and evaluating LCD TV's for quite a while and had been looking to replace all my three tube TV's.

Price and value, 6ms response, 6000:1 dynamic contrast, video quality even in SD, smart stretch feature, 2xHDMI input, Compact size

None so far. I would have preferred the black bezel to have more of a matt finish than the shiny glossy one, but for the price performace I can live with it.

Good for an LCD?


(Edited March 19th by cboman01) I researched LCD's for a few months before ordering this one.

Nice cabinet, HD Picture quality, plenty of inputs, Bright

SD Picture quality, Annoying auto black level adjustment
