Sharp Aquos LC

 

Even seasoned consumer electronics shoppers sometimes puzzle over the reasoning behind a significant price difference among similarly sized HDTVs. Screen resolution is usually one of the major factors-an HDTV with 1080p screen resolution typically...

Excellent HD video processing. No overscan with HD sources. Good picture contrast.

Some smearing noted in scenes containing motion. Limited HD color range.

The Sharp Aquos LC-32D44U offers a detailed picture at an attractive price, but some picture-performance quirks may dissuade video purists.

Sharp AQUOS LC-32D44U

 

As off-brands such as Vizio, Insignia, and Westinghouse continue to make inroads among HDTV shoppers, traditional makers such as Sharp have to make it seem as if their sets are worth a couple of hundred bucks extra. That's especially tough in the...

The Sharp LC-32D44U produces a relatively deep shade of black and fine shadow detail; exhibits decent screen uniformity; sleek design; nice selection of picture controls; zero-overscan aspect ratio mode available.

Inaccurate primary colors; darker areas tend toward blue; spotty video processing with 1080i sources; subpar standard-definition processing; soft picture with PC sources; no easy-access front- or side-panel inputs.

While stylish and well featured for an entry-level HDTV, the 32-inch Sharp LC-32D44U's picture quality falls short of expectations.

My remote stopped being responsive!!

 

I take very good care of everything I own and I've always owned a Sharp television. But something like the TV not recognizing the remote is just ridiculous. Now I have to call them and complain

Up until now I really enjoyed my TV. Great picture for gaming, very little motion blur and the stock speakers sounds really nice too. I've had it for almost two years

Well like I just said my TV stopped being responsive to my remote just like what smeissne was complaining about
